My Favourite Image of the Week 006



Empty Patch in the Sky
#SpaceScience
NASA/ESA +Hubble Space Telescope

Am I driving myself backwards or am I falling myself forwards
My face feels ripped by the speed of contradiction
This feels quite normal - doom, destruction, power, explosion, and drift
In with a chance but blown away by the spectacular
Like riding a rocking horse
Easy to move but never getting anywhere
Am I right to waste this energy
My loss or societal

This fog is temperamental
I cannot get an exact answer
I cannot deduct
The holes in my space keeps opening and closing
Too fast to respond I am never there, never in the right position
Forever thinking post-event but never in-event

Looking for hints, clutching at nothingness
What is visible and what is behind that I cannot see
I'll cry like a baby and then suddenly stop
Cry stop cry stop never to look back in-fear
In-fear of fear

Where am I in this formation?
Did I contribute to this empty patch?
Is that really me?
Did you see me glow?
Or is it me hidden behind the darkness?

Intelligent Systems Bias Towards Psychosis






In our time of exponential growth
IT came into existence 
We in desperation to profit 
To gain a competitive edge
IT prospered 
An irrepressible force
Ignoring great warning and prediction 
There is gain to be made 
When in mass disruption
IT persisted
An irrepressible change emerged

Through mischief a chance opportunity to pervert opened
A window - a door opened for the hidden
Audacious human endeavour 
Then  that was crushed 
Then those were denied
Through profit, IT was programmed to resist benevolence 
So soon(lie) freewill was questioned
Well-being, safety and the mantra of care submerge drowned out all human repulsion
Protection from those who would do us harm
Normalisation 
IT made claim 

Humanity contained by those who profit
Through the profit of care
Mapping emotional intent 
Subjugated behavior mapped
Recognition algorithm 
Methods of prediction 
Controlled manner
IT  controlled the fear in us through the fear in us
There IT became

In the darkness 
Hidden with intent
Within a question of malice 
IT observes us
IT now our benevolence
Happy in self surveillance we freely graze
Our imprisonment is our goodness
Have nothing to hide
Mistrust self questioning

Automated improvement 
Submerged in mechanisms that monitor our self constraint 
We are able to cower through lifetimes of induced fear 
We are able to rejoice through demonstrations of restrained retribution
IT cares for us
Medicated and solvent 
A place somewhere between comfort and profit
IT guards our masses

My favourite image of the Week 005




Seymour Standing under a Tree, 1859
Whistler, James McNeill
American, 1834 - 1903

In all relationships, there is a need to admire.
Whether in your family or whether in your place, stop and admire.
Who you are and what you have become.

In transience enjoy the spectre of admiration.
Enjoy the dread of mortality.
Enjoy the sense of self-passing.
Enjoy your individual acts. 
They are short in time.
Admire your shortened moments.
In space that lingers.

Within your key constructs of your inner-self.
There is time to self-evaluate and self-praise.
In this short time build your own sense of self-worth.

Are you able to predict your condition?
Are you able to restore your own behaviour?
Are you the property  owner of your oneself?
Are you the object of your environment?
Are you the inhabitant of your condition?
Are you in control of your laboratory?

Stand within your problem.
Orientate to recognise your placed within this transient realm.
And in preparation of once gone, prepare your spectre.

Are your spectre's windows transparent?
Are your ceilings high and blue?
Do your doors open and close?
Are your partitions understood?
Are your secrets defensible?
Were you in cognitive control?

Intelligent Systems Apartment view




If I was to design a city
It would be based on palm fronds
Folding, sweeping, bending and contorting to landform
Branching and networking in organic and rhythmic juxtapositions
Interconnection and transposing within changing directions
Allowing for air flow
Allowing for negative space
Allowing for intertwinement
The grid buried beneath, as an ancient relic

My favourite image of the Week 004



Breakfast piece
Herbert Badham1936

https://www.google.com/culturalinstitute/beta/asset/CAEJGudB0BW5Lw


There are multiple reference points
There are multiple perspectives
I am on the ladder
I am against the ceiling
I am standing in authority
I am not sitting with her
I am not with her
I must continually juxtapose

Within this disorientation, the arrangement is seemingly orderly
The painter, the authoritative who cannot decide
The seated lost within time and place
The pawn as the egg waiting on removal
Should I be more concerned with the flowers precarious standing on edge
Or the sense of a contained cell-like melancholy
A draughtsman at loss with the within presence
