OOoohh, I didn’t even check for comments there, haha. Woops! No problem, it’s wacky sometimes, but it’s a learning experience for me, too. I think it’s kinda cute that anyone could think this sorta thing could’ve been a mistake. I gotta go check out the comments then… I suppose it’ll only be yours there, hehe.
Yes, this is a painting I’ve done in Artrage. I’ve had my shirt (out of microfabric, which is kind of silk like) next to me, my juggling balls and mask (which I actually bought in Venice) and decided to arrange them somewhat. And so I tried with some patience to capture really what I’m seeing. To even bring your mind to calibrate to values and then consistently reproduce them is quite exhausting. Really, this is exhausting. But I’ve done a much more exhausting exercise after that, having my lavalamp and a glass of water beside me. That was insane, but not nearly as pretty. 8}
If you go to the gallery link I posted up there, you’ll find it, too.
However, don’t underestimate the continued beauty of logic in life into fields of logic like math and everything related. Besides, I don’t think you’ve meant “abstract thinking”, but the exact opposite. Abstract thinking deeply embraces math, since it does not require visuals, images, recognizable manifestations. Abstract refers to something without form or knowable structure, removed from any subject, really. Hahahaha, yeah, this may relate to your appearance, when you’re dreaming away, being drawn away from the moment or reality, but that’s not normally the meaning, hihihi. Funny, though.
I need to visualize everything in my mind and that’s what happens, too. Even when I do my math, which is important for a lot of my programming, but that’s no biggy, because most of it is meant to become a visual phenomenon, haha. _
Don’t forget that it’s all about communication, though. Even if you identify your passion as your own and believe you need to focus on your own improvement or discovery, eventually you do all this to fulfill a function within your community and eventually amongst all mankind. As everyone with doing what ever their spirit tells them to. That’s how we roll…or should roll. But society degenerated enough to make this a fairly lost understanding.
Anyway, so communication means to be able to exchange your visions as well as receiving the input to feed your visions.
What you do not like about school is its primary function, pah, that is to discipline you, condition you for the submissive society out there. The educational part is far less relevant to the school system then the obedience it is supposed to enforce upon you. You’re not given the devices to understand how to live together and function for each other. You’re forced to obey the system, as it pretends to know what you are and have to do. Artists often find that a bit unpleasant and most likely wrong, because very little is art a useful function within society… UNTIL NOW! Because now, as people are pushed into uselessness, meaning servitude without real product, visual effects and the likes become a great field to send kids to. They serve as it was intended, they do useless nonsense as it is wished for and they’ll have to obey authority at all times. Excellent, let them become “artists”, haha.
hm…i’m rambling, am I not?
Sorry about that…
