- 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."

- Curation of Creative Principles | Interior Truth
Creative / Aesthetic Principles 3. Creativity and art is the highest form of expression of the human spirit and experience 1. Being naive 2. It is not about you as an individual...your genius is an outer energy/being/force that you connect to (daimon) 4. Creativity is getting hyper-connected...accelerated virtuous loops 5. Creativity is a dynamic, a vector, and not a location with coordinates - This refers to however we look at the world, as a struggle between good and evil, or an inquiry as to our progress as a society, we often make judgements about whether a situation is good or bad, and can our efforts suceed in such challenging social contexts. This can lead to a loss of hope. Is creativity in play I suggest is a more helpful question as to our deep purpose. 6. Sixth list item.
