The Future of Painting
The Mantle Inaugural Salon
New York, NY
September 12, 2012
This talk took the form of a Q&A followed by a moderated conversation. While I don't have a recording, above you can see a work I showed, "Traffic Cones of Museum Mile". Below are the notes I put together prior to the talk.
Big view of what's possible. Time travel. God. Keep everything on table. Where do ideas come from? Do you generate thoughts or do you access them? Define being a person. Define being a human. Very difficult to even answer most fundamental questions - Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going?
Singularity -> Kurzweil's Law of Accelerating Returns
Traffic cone abundance
We are creating our past, present and future faster than ever.
Technological add-ins -> undo, motion, static light levels
Tools will become more responsive and more powerful
Art options (forms -> expanding abundance)
Simulations -> grind own pigments vs no clean-up no brush-buying
Random may come up:
Art that confuses. Early art. Opaque. I DON'T GET IT ->mystery
