Playing with the “canvas” backgrounds in ArtRage and thinking about the medium I use. There are a few earlier ones in this genre – Chalk and the next few after that. Also the next two I post up will be in this “series”.

This is the first of several that I am putting up of dozens of explorations – many deleted of the media. I am exploring what it means to be digital in the art world. Is everything a fake? I use fake pencil and fake chalk and fake paint.
Yet the whole point about language is that we use something to reperesent something.
This must be something well covered in the exploration of art? Where? By whom?

They are ads for those who want an ad. No doubt. But I am not calling them ads anymore. Sponsored links is ok. I realise that as they go they create a map. The first sketches sold will go to someone, somewhere. Hopefully the links will indicate a place on the globe? At least a place in cyberspace. As I post out prints I will have cities to post them to. I can map that. There will be a visual image of the distribution. So you could be an advertiser, or just love the picture, or, to put it quaintly, be a patron of the arts!
Audience participation. It creates a context for the images and prints. They will be part of a sociocorpus. Not only the map, the comments with each image will embody a flow of connection.
Just had the first comment come in now, from Bex, a quick response to the very Soft Launch.
And another comment from Dan & a wonderful post in his blog! Have a look. Thanks Dan.
Here is a report on a conversation that I had about two weeks ago. It had an impact, and sent me into a reticent mood, so blogging it now, two weeks later.
I like Johnathan, and I like his gallery, and on the first of September I popped in for a look. Chatting about the project was not really on my mind, I did not have many sketches up and no computer with me, or prints. However we got chatting & I showed him the sketches I had online on his computer. About five at that stage. He was interested and liked the project, the concept, the dot.com aspect. The project.
I felt my cringe factor creep in with sketches of the horse & the cat. That conversation led to me thinking again about what I was doing. The project. I felt down, but it was a good conversation. I look forward to more.
Today I embrace that dot.com aspect. This is part of my much bigger life-long project of “Exploring the Psyche in Cyberspace” in that field I am in my element.
