Improvisational Translation on a Wet May Day in Derby Week

I was inspired by this video:

黒谷和紙 ー Making of Japanese handmade paper of Kyoto Kurotani

Found a neat little hack. Put “gif” in front of any youtube vid and it will take you to where you can extract gifs. I liked the five below. You can turn on the sound for each gif by click on the sound icon inside the image. It is fun to turn them all on and watch the passing show.

I was inspired by Simon, Tania, Kevin:

All of the gifs above merged into a single mega-gif on ezgif with text of adopted/adapted poem and uploaded to Giphy:


Eventually to Zeega with the poem printed on the gif with ezgif with mad frog recitative.

So what?

This is the same kind of connectedness that hides in plain sight in nature and is simply recast here as digital hedgerow full of crows and mockingbirds and whippoorwills and barn swallows, ff.

Reality Is Quotidien REDUX

Here is my Vialogue from yesterday’s post.  I have reflected on the creative process and this is my ‘director’s cut’. It could be our director’s cut if you join in.   The value of doing this reflection is so important to me. Why?  All of the work of the past three days for me is a reflection of the shared social spaces I live in.  Much is made these days about how we are being distracted to death by the technopoly.  I agree with some of this critique, but it doesn’t go very far toward resolving the fact that this is where I choose to live.  What I have tried to do with this work is to demonstrate to myself (maybe others,but I doubt that will happen) that I can take this distracted work and enter into a deeper consideration of what these distracted threads mean.  I want to show that deep work can be the result of all the “shallow” roots I try to put down.
