Ich bin ein Bernini!

Apr 11, 2008 - Crumblescape - 0 Comments - Standard

The Ecstasy of St Clickism It’s not exactly a single photoshop filter, “bernini.8bf”, but rather a syndrome of filters (to use a pathological expression). The sierpinski effect from multicrystal.8bf (Ilyich the Toad) produces the sharp, stone-like appearance that extractor1.8bf expands upon so well. But it’s the simple mirror,mirror filter that takes it to a whole […]

The Prose Poem

I remember the great arrival of the prose poem. I was taking a poetry “workshop” and there, suddenly, on a page in the poetry anthology was a clump of text without any explanation. This fragment of text, which was actually shorter than the poem on the facing page, had a title at the top, just […]

Better than Escher?

Mar 30, 2008 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

Yes, but let’s give the old guy credit for having to work with such primitive tools — like himself. That’s right; I don’t have to calculate or plan anything in my own head like what’s-his-name did. With a single, thunderous click I unleash an awesome whirlwind of mathematical calculations, the simplest of which would leave […]

There was a time when the radio made pictures. There was a time when you could see the sounds you heard. You could look at the radio waves. Abandoned now, the memories still exist. Ask anyone, like me, around my age, how the radios at one time used to come with a little TV screen, […]

Brought to you by the proud sponsors of the 2012 Olympic Clickism Team! [Your Company’s Name Here] I’m trying to get Clickism recognized as an official Olympic sport. Of course, if that happens I probably won’t even qualify for a spot on my country’s first official team to compete at the next Olympics. The competition […]
