My walk-through, see-through, think-through conceptual maze.
My map of the glass walls of the prison of my mind. Divisions of everything into perspectives; representations of those divisions; topologies for those perspectives. Languages of how things happen, take on meaning, how they matter. The wishes of God for everything, anything, something, nothing. Our own needs, doubts, expectations and values. The ways of figuring things out, of exercising good will, of living meaningfully. We are one in that we are all alone. We see from God's lap how his questions unfold and why his answers come together. Our own questions and answers, our rays of light by which we grow forever as independent thinkers, like stars in the sky. The dust of experience by which we notice the glass and yet still see through it. Acrylic words, diagrams, figures on acetate walls. God indexed by light, by the spectrum we can see and that we can't. What can our prison tell us about our keeper?
My art show God's Mind sums up my life's thinking in terms of characters (Black God, Red I, Yellow You, Blue Other...) who consider that God does not have to be good.
At the Southside Community Art Center, my fellow choir members from St.Benedict the African sang gospel songs as I gave my sermon in the dollhouse. I'd like to express and develop these ideas in all possible forms!
I wish to foster a culture of learning, growing, living forever, here and now. The kingdom of heaven!
Imagine 100 families in Englewood hosting learning canvases on their front yard fences.
It could transform the entire neighborhood! I'm working on this Friday afternoons
at Imagine Englewood if..., 730 W. 69th St., Chicago, IL, USA.
My video self-portrait, part of my proposal to Chicago's Neighborhood Arts Program, with footage of God's Mind and photos of learning canvases.
I consult on data analysis, statistics, mathematical models, and writing research papers, specifically, in tobacco control.
All of my life, I've worked to know everything and apply that knowledge
usefully, as I present in my video,
I Wish to Know. From 1998 to 2010, I organized independent thinkers around the world with
Minciu Sodas, Worknets and
Pyramid of Peace. I'm now interested in organizing such a culture
based on learning, growing, living forever, here and now.
