A Non-ordinary Reality: Listening to what you can see. Excerpts from my artist's talk

Apr 9, 2013

In March I gave a formal presentation on the Non-ordinary Reality painting series, or as many people refer to them, the water paintings. A Non-ordinary Reality: Listening to what you can see — the neuroscience behind the paintings. That was the title of the talk. Below are excerpts — in slides — of said talk, as well as a link where you can see the complete annotated presentation. I've included my notes on the slides for this version. Of course, normally the slides would not be so text heavy. Most of this was spoken.

You can link to the complete slide show here: https://www.slideshark.com/Landing.aspx?pi=zHUzuYIVCzAx0nz0&re=1&r=a3ZyaWptb2V0QGhvdG1haWwuY29t&intk=672385192











Not Waving but Drowning by Stevie Smith


Nobody heard him, the dead man,

But still he lay moaning:

I was much further out than you thought

And not waving but drowning.


Poor chap, he always loved larking

And now he’s dead

It must have been too cold for him his heart gave way,

They said.


Oh, no no no, it was too cold always

(Still the dead one lay moaning)

I was much too far out all my life

And not waving but drowning
