Notes: 

Hyper shapes

An aggregation of self-similar forms; fugitive things.

Light, air, space, solids, dynamic, ritual, functional, indeterminable, composition-disposition, silence, responsive, run, quiet, quietness.

Black Clouds

 

Who are you after swallowing the ocean and all of its light?

An enclosure of slow violence?

A chamber of waves and Black Clouds?

You swallowed the triangle, the distance, and the unknown.

The howling light years are in your body now.

Echoes of sorrow and steel adhere to each blood vessel. 

An intermolecular force of blue.

And your arms are blurs of ships

You try holding emancipation to your damp chest

No time for drowning, you live on 

with the dampness of the ocean,

with dripping spacious hands and brutal horizons 

Soaked in discontinues Blackness 

You can now spit light 

This is where the glory is

The ongoing 

The deep swallow changed you

Your old self is a tide inside your new self. 

Breathing in a new liquid belonging

You lift your fingertip to see the cumulus energy of black being

You take that finger and make a mark, a dig, a scratch

You draw hauntology

A multi-scalar condition with an incompressible fluid

This new self is all chance and heat

Chance as form 

And uncertain, indeterminable being of blue

A new demography  

A new watercolor

Think about weight and scale. Stipule 

Black world building where we move with peace and liberty

Models 

I've been exploring  drawing and painting through stop animation.  I'm excited about the opportunity to make a piece for this project.

I read this quote often and I've been paring it with these drawins.  

"The model that I am proposing would be based on a theorization that melds various aspects of the human sciences and a mode of culture analysis for which we currently have no name, but one might think of it as a cultural demography; this new "science" would be alert to the cultural implications of movement, which is not only a primary meaning of the life-world but one of its most significant literary trope--the "symbolic geography" that would explain (1) diasporic movement, (2) internal migration, and (3) the mechanisms of fantasy and ambition that contextualize African American struggle."

a quiet prayer while making.  2016-the first hyper shape practice.  

process/all love

 In process: no words to describe how this feels. Agnes Martin Speaks of beauty, Alice Walker speaks of being her true self.  Follow the women.
