- Silence being my artistic frame... Working with symbols vs signs
Loving this book by JF Martel, Co-host of the excellent Weird Studies podcast. P69 speaks to how "the transmutation of signs into symbols is achieved through framing" which I see as being the silence practice in my filming. Nice to make the analogy of an artist's canvas or a theatre stage, with the simple fact of sitting with someone in silence as the "framing".
- Fun time tagging/signifying 45 min of silence
Fun time tagging/signifying 45 minutes of silence from a recent shoot. I found I in the end placed lots of tags, with things like 'raising eyebrow'; 'slight stretch to the left'; 'rolling of the head'. Aiming for a 3 min edit, but perhaps I'll post the full version for paying members on my website, a new meditation app! This connects to the interest I have in witnessing subtle energy, as described in action by David Deida in the workshop in Ken Wilber's loft here (reproduced with permission from Integral Life).
- Chris Marker and the film Sans Soleil - a generational reference in film making
With might be seen as an oblique connection to the witnessing filming process, but pointing to a direction I am embarking on to evolve my work, Marker is an essential inspiration, ushering in the style of the non-linear film essay. Marker (1921 - 2012) was a French writer, photographer, documentary film director, multimedia artist and film essayist. His best known films are La Jetée (1962), A Grin Without a Cat (1977) and Sans Soleil (1983) - meditation on the nature of human memory, showing the inability to recall the context and nuances of memory, and how, as a result, the perception of personal and global histories is affected. Friend and collaborator Alain Resnais called him "the prototype of the twenty-first-century man."
- The Art of Witnessing | Interior Truth
"Witnessing" video art projects by John Oliver "Silence is my canvas ... listening in wholeness " Filming from a place of unconditional silent witnessing opens the door to a more spontaneous, deeper consciousness and interior 'truth', offering . stepping stones for our evolving journies The unique nature of the filming process is in our dropping into a full body felt sense of the present. Each filming session begins with a period of silence with eyes closed - I therefore ask of the viewer to join us at that same level, by watching when free from distractions and with headphones. If you loose patience after 15s because nothing is happening, then this is a perfect chance to reflect on which energetic level you are at. T reat yourself to the silence and space to connect to what these people are courageously sharing. Video narratives - 1 min clips Watch only when free of distractions, with headphones. Give yourself the gift of presence with these courageous souls.

radical witnessing A new dimension in video filming dedicated to the arts and the creative experience. These are not interviews, portraits or biographies, but spontaneous glimpses of our souls filmed from silence and vulnerable presence... Interior Truth is the filming and editing service by John Oliver using an ultra minimalist approach, filmed from a place of silent witnessing (e.g. there are no "interview" type questions, or expectations on content outcomes). "I'm on a journey. Trying to make sense between soul and shadow. Getting out of my head. Seeing in new ways. Dropping into my heart. Feeling in new ways. Unlearning, to arrive at states of naked, fearful innocence. Fascinated by how our path to a greater collective consciousness might emerge from a radical witnessing of our intimate, interior truths." - John Oliver This "witnessing zone" integrates inspirations and training from the Inner View Method (nicaskew.com), Integral Theory (Wilber), Focusing (Gendlin) and Sensemaking (narratives). A recurring remark of participants at the end of the filming, is that even they are surprised as to which narratives arose in the moment, and that I, even as a stranger to them, have had the chance to get to know them like no other. Further details and video on my journey and purpose can be found here. video portraits Warning! ...Watch only when free from distractions and with headphones.

John always sets each filming up as an experiment setting no expectations - if we are to sit in silence for the whole time, then that is just a great an outcome as if the person speaks. It so happens that Rob stayed in silence for 45min....and a whole lot happened.

John was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and worked in the commercial arts as a muralist, billboard creator and freelance illustrator. After learning to paint by doing airbrushed billboards, he decided to pursue Fine Art and work in oils. Since then, he has had 3 solo exhibitions in San Francisco and numerous group exhibitions both nationally and internationally. His works have appeared in many publications and have won multiple awards. John now paints full time in his studio in Paris, France.

He then began an international career and exhibited successively at Design Miami / Basel in Switzerland and at Tajan in Paris. In 2011, he won the PAD Moët Hennessy prize in London. For many years, in the solitude of his large studio, the artist-craftsman has been developing his prototypes and fashioning works of art that do not claim their function: this only appears in a second step, thus questioning the traditional contemporary furniture design. Vincent Dubourg gives birth to organic, dynamic and sculptural forms that tell a story, that of the mutation of reality and the inalienable possession of nature over society. Between furniture, sculptures, architecture and staging, it offers a new interpretation of object design. https://carpentersworkshopgallery.com/artists/vincent-dubourg/ Play Video Play Video 04:49 John Oliver - InteriorTruth.com Romain Langlois - Sculptor (full version) Play Video Play Video 04:27 John Oliver - InteriorTruth.com Nicola Powys - Artist (full version) Play Video Play Video 03:58 John Oliver - InteriorTruth.com Tom Goldstein - coach and wilderness guide - full version www.coachingwithtom.com Play Video Play Video 05:37 John Oliver - InteriorTruth.com Jeremy Le Fèvre - Coach, a Facilitator & Wilderness Guide (full version) Jeremy is an Explorer who helps individuals and teams beyond boundaries.
