It's a visual Manifesto rather than something that is meant to stand alone for it's aesthetic value, although I think it has those qualities too. It's always changing, keeping the main idea but being fine-tuned as time goes on. Here are some basic ideas that my work operates by. Remember, REALLY REALLY BASIC. To get deeper into any personal manifesto would mean that I couldn't use words anymore because there comes a point-I'm not a verbally eloquent person and I get the sinking feeling sometimes that no one understands what I'm trying to say or that I'm speaking a different language entirely.
Here some of it is:
-there are two important, base numbers and they are 3 and 4.
-3 is masculine
-4 is feminine
- diagonal, / and \ are masculine.
- the circle and the square are feminine.
-masculine is dynamic and action
-feminine is complete and whole
- a picture that operates on a ratio divisible by three will become dynamic
-a picture that operates on a ratio divisible by four will be whole.
Of course, none of this is completely black-and-white. This is where the whole idea of 7 comes in but I don't know if it's worth the time and, quite frankly, this may all only be important to me and that's fine.
