Do you know that the bird is a master of composition? Six: composition. Our bird has the keenest sense of organization in any setting (i.e. the rooftop, the bridge, the tree). I do not know why [sic] this is though I can think of several explanations: 1. Each bird has an innate sense of his participation in the larger composition, 2. Spatial relationships are dependent solely on the chemical compatibility of any two birds; in other words, the composition is pure science. (I suspect that you will prefer the latter of the two hypotheses.)
The student, the eyes,
The bird is exactly what it does. Seven: the bird is a bird machine.
I last spoke of the bird machine. I will now speak specifically about the motion (mechanics) of that machine. Eight: mechanics. Please keep in mind that although there are related phenomena, they are quite distinct from one another. I am talking about a different thing today. The machine is conceptual whereas mechanics can be diagrammed by many small arrows. I have included one such diagram below:
In order to understand the idea of the subject as a
vector cluster I will introduce the concept of atomism. If you will recall,
an atom is comprised of electrons, neutrons, and protons. There are,
The total work is biparous, having one part fiction, one part critical analysis. The former takes the form of a series of letters written from the perspective of an Eastern European woman. Content here concerns epistemological musings on the sublime as initiated by the observation of a blackbird. The author, M begins this process with the question, "What is a blackbird?" The tone of the subsequent letters is at once hysterical and macabre, and throughout the narrative there is question as to the existence of the recipient of the letters (Darling) in spite of a reticent romantic amorousness.
Ultimately, these letters become historicized (and implicitly fictional) with the introduction of part two, categorization and analysis of the epistolary narrative. Drawing primarily from the philosophy of aesthetics as well as physics, I designed a thesis that dissected the authors experience in scientific terms.
This project has previously been extended to include performance and installation.
