Mixed Media

About: tagroom of items tagged with mixed media


I'm getting closer to my intentions in my thinking in this tag room ... it's something that started a long time ago ... in P2 ... when i was trying to write it out as a novel.  But now, of course, it all looks different ... maybe just as confusing ... but at last it has lost some of its passionate neon crazy edges. 

One thing that mixed media is NOT about ... it is not just a rant against companies and governments manipulating and dividing our space ... though that apparently must needs be there; for if companies divide us by establishing artificial boundaries, then we will be running into their walls and not mixing our media.

One thing this tag room IS about ... is life itself ... as a stream composed of different strands ... mostly associated with our different senses of sight and sound and smell and taste ... but also of language  and habit ... and otherness ...  all of those streams mix together to make up our lives. 

Yes, it is about otherness too ... for our self is just such an artificial boundary or wall to which i referred above.   So your streams ... your flowing consciousness of sight, sound, smell taste, language, and otherness flows and affects mine ... there they mix to make the texture of our lives.

And, yes, it is not just about the beauty and the ecstasy of the mixing ... it is also about the pathos and tragedy where the walls close off and bust up and crash the streams which are dashed upon the rocks thrown there by the evils in the world.

last night going to sleep i got an image of what this opus could include.  there could be waves of images flashed ... clustered by emotion and topic ... the images fading in and out with no hard boundaries ... for example happy images, children running slow motion through a flowery meadow ... love between people ... technological images ... change topics ... mountain scenes, forest.   then if integrating Bitter Nation could be dogs barking ... getting more and more ferocious ... images of people arguing ... wars etc ... could be interspersed with the other images.   Those waves of images would be integrated throught the story plot line.

Before going to sleep - if I am calm - I get lots of psychedelic patterns, green vegetation & flowers of unknown species.  Once I tried to invent nonsence cartoons doing silly things & fell asleep doing it.
Fun, though.

yeah the mind itself is a grand source ... it generates all manner of media ... and in altered state mode, they can be just as intense, or more, than life itself ... a Grand Channel, indeed!

Are not waves of images & possibly sounds & words just YouTube fodder?
Well yes ... but then i experienced them with the added dimension/media of emotion ... but with my eyes closed.  Mixed media is life ... youtube is just a collection of opuses with pictures, perhaps moving with or without a sundtrack, attached to a comment stream, accessible to all on the internet, and widely advertised to the culture at large.

I like the idea of extending my senses ... hearing what i cannot see ... or even of looking through your eyes. 



Interesting ! There is an interesting abnormality called synaesthesia where people have their senses crossed & smell words & so forth. I've seen several SCI channel programs on it. Apparently sensations can be crossed. http://mindhacks.com/2010/01/15/beyond-crossed-senses-in-synaesthesia/
