Crash Scene

May 15, 2008 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

If I had a dream and I saw a man punching little holes in the sky and each little piece that came out and fell to the ground was a transistor, then I’d say that’s how it happened. And if that dream ended with a man standing before a mountain of garbage yelling, “Give me […]

Long Twisted Tale of Titles

I see something I think I’ve renamed my blog about 10 times over the past two weeks. It started, two and a half years ago, as Fractal Beanstalk; the idea being that fractals, a type of Generative Art, start from tiny seed-like formulas and grow into enormous things that one can explore. But fractals are […]

Gravel Writing

I’ve noticed that the difference between replicas and the real, historical objects they are meant to represent is the lack of imperfections. Real things, like dinosaur fossils or castles or even little things like roman clay oil lamps, are almost always either incomplete or broken. When people take photos of disasters or photograph a chance […]

If you’ve been following my blog (there must be a few…) you will have noticed that I’ve not just redone the page design but also renamed the blog. The new name, Art From New Places, is actually the name I used for my 2nd attempt at blogging, this attempt being the 3rd. My first attempt […]

The Prose Poem

Apr 08, 2008 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

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?

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, […]

Are you ready for bubbles?

bubbles03.loo I don’t know what made me pick up Sterlingware again. After a year or two of experimenting with the formula parser in Inkblot Kaos and Tierazon and a whole bunch of photoshop filters, Sterlingware didn’t seem exciting anymore. Once again, I’d thought I’d squeezed every good thing out of Sterlingware. Sure, like every progam […]

The Bird That Gave Birth to the Moon

Click for Sterlingware Parameter File There is a new legend that tells how a bird gave birth to the moon. For thousands of years the bird had laid eggs and all of them had been eaten by animals in the forest. The bird started by laying eggs on the ground, which were of course quickly […]

Temple of Saturn

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 […]
