If you haven’t been hit by computer virus recently, please know that some new ones are making the rounds now. Apparently they gain entry to your system by posing as messages or software updates from Adobe and/or Apple.
The effect is to shut down your internet access and slow everything down.
Some include Ransom provision i.e. if you want to see your digital information again (including picture files), you must pay money.
Silhouette of natural stone formations climbing mountain slope recalls Barrier Canyon Style of ancient pictographs.
The Holy Ghost Group is the seminal work of the Barrier Canyon style of rock art. It is in the Great Gallery of Horseshoe canyon about 100 miles north of the photographer’s site on the Colorado river bank.
Anasazi and other archaic native Americans travelling along the river 5,500 years ago probably saw the natural stone silhouette as it appears in this contemporary photograph. The Holy Ghost’s painted pictograph, the work of archaic native Americans 5500 years ago, resembles this formation.
Post below shows my photographs of Barrier Canyon Style rock paintings.
Album covers seek to convey the mystery and ambiance of the music. Here, the cables of the Golden Gate Bridge in fog reflect Karen Gottlieb’s harp performance — music of San Francisco Bay Area composers.
The Nara fugitive’s one-eyed face looks like this now:
The back of the mask is left open – to fit the torso’s neck opening (not shown here). But when the head is apart from the body, the empty opening in the back leaves us feeling incomplete. So, what to do?
Well, the hollowed-out opening in back is ideally situated to possess the fugitive’s Inner Presence. So, as the mask rotates the Inner Presence comes into view.
The Inner Presence sculpture is carved in redwood and detachable from the Nara Fugitive’s fir mask. So then, of course, the question becomes what to do with the Inner Presence when it’s detached?
PG & E (Pacific Gas & Electric Co) installed its controversial smart meter on my house. They said it would give me great detail on my use of electricity. This attracted law suits from the public. So, PG&E stopped connecting the “Smart” part of the meter that would tell me everything — the only part they connected is the dumb meter that tells me how much money I have to pay PG&E.
Smart Meter I (door)
If you open the door you will see this inside:
Smart Meter II (inner presence)
Smart Meter (round thing at top) provided by Pacific Gas and Electric Company. Installed at Kentfield, California.
This one made itself over the course of two years. First, I carved a life-size mask in fir of a Nara period face drawing. Here it was:
Then what? I used it in the Head Case. Here’s what that looked like:
Then I let it sit for a year while I worked on other things.
When painting wood sculpture during this period, I cleaned brushes, rags, knives on the inside of a utility closet door. If I were a formal painter I would call this panel my wood palette for the time. Here’s a picture of that:
Meanwhile I took another cut at the Nara fugitive, so then it looked something like this.
And then I took many looks at the two pictures (and countless derivatives) in Photoshop — the result is the image at the top of this post.
The biggest image my printer can make is 13″ wide and maybe as much as 28″ long. Any bigger, means I have to take it out to a real printer.
