Below is a statement from Visionheart aka Richard S Warner :
Visual creation, for me, is part of a total ‘gestalt’ ( yes, that old word ) that I try to reach through a symbiotic resonance of image, title with text commentary and the suggestion of musical accompaniment. These are the material or effectual aspects of the piece but even these are not the complete ‘picture’.
All the above elements are taken in and perceived differently through each viewer’s individualized consciousness. Physical givens, psychological associations with shapes, color and form, life experience, openness of mind, imagination, personal histories, all have a play on curving the paths of perception to the contours of individuality.
Vision, text and music resonate, collide with, harmonize or enliven by virtue of a series of these inner filters, some conscious, some below that. What is finally ‘seen’ is the result of all of these elements working together to, indeed, affect the final creation – what finally ‘gels’ or crystallizes as the final perception in the mind of the viewer.
That none of us sees the same picture, in effect, is marvelous to me.
Since there are as many ‘final pieces’ as there are viewers of a single work, then there is no one single way to view it. This ties in with one of my deepest pre-occupations, the world of Quantum Reality.
In that discipline it’s been accepted that there are at least 11 possible dimensions that exist as potential at that level. Which one becomes manifest or particularized is up to a deeper ‘implicate’ order, but the very act of observation causes one to surface and the rest of the possibilities to recede back into the Quantum Vacuum, or, as Ervin Laszlo would call it, the “Akashic Field”.
My “TumbleWorld” images are a visual attempt to call into question the tyranny of a singularity of vision and to provide a visual metaphor for the simultaneity of planes and dimensions that present themselves to us each day and out of which we chose our realities.
The coming Quantum Age will see us all intrinsically inter-connected, non-locally influential and inseparably and holographically affective. My work, then, is a clumsy, first attempt at a Quantum Art, such as that might be.
By virtue of the fact that almost all of it exists virtually and that as many as 33,000 people have viewed it in a single day on Flickr tells me something about the simultaneity and non-local affect of “online art.”
Perhaps Quantum Art is here, now, already. We have only to see it that way.
