  • The Here and Now of Creativity
    an old friend and colleague named Brent Schlea we covered it Focus Or possibly more to the point Hyperfocus What that means basically is being so in the moment that you see and feel and experience time Spirit Soul and Body For an Artist that can be a fantastic tool There is that proposition that humans only use a small percentage of our brain s computing power I see it differently We have computers now that exceed the computational power of the human brain But we will NEVER create a man who via his soul can connect to different bits of information in diverse dimensions simultaneously You have the five senses Tether those to the soulical and the spiritual aspects of Man and you have touched the hand of God That would be us potentially Ever see the film Limitless The trailer is here It is a lot like that You remove limits when you begin to be right where you are I have always thought the life of Jesus to be one of if not the pre eminent best example of this The images in this blog post are a tiny I mean VERY small slice of work from a couple days here over the Holiday I know that I am one of an infinite number of people who have gained a grasp on the principle of being in the moment It is a heady and vital perfume for a creative as it allows you to communicate something that the casual observer would never have noticed It is walking between the lines of the script of life on the planet here So why do it Because if we do it changes things IN a world that is entropy laced creativity connects Creation with God And that experience feels incredible

  • Love Does
    quantity of people Donna Von Hoesslin s company vision touches and how it affects change The look on her face as she sits with one of her teams of artisans on Bali says it all This matters to her that her company offers a link to other realities for her people I think it may possibly be the single best design catalyst to care enough about people that one would be willing to love them to the point of changing their worlds for the better Betty B could manufacture anywhere Margins would go way up in some ways but the quality of life for people she deems special would not So she keeps most of her work creation on Bali I jokingly refer to her modus as detente by design But it suits her And her collaborators And something very very special is born into this world by it Jobs did this very same thing in his own way with his family and with Apple He changed the world i Life Donna and I both are able to create a heck of a lot with great facility due to Steve Jobs In the image above she documents something pretty cool However what she does not realize is that her artisan was working on the engagement ring which I had designed for her The little green piece of seaglass on the table was one which I had brought over from California and had at the last minute swapped out for a smaller piece found on Bali I was stifling myself as I shot this in Ketut s workshop Life tends to become a blur Donna s designs make one pause and consider what beauty and love truly are all about We need that I need that It is what I want in my life Ubud I had a lot of time to think and shoot as Donna and I flew home on EVA Our route takes us over Brunei It seems that magical things always occur there Here is one grand panoramic which seems to me like a castle in the sky Firmament Landing in LA and going through Customs I saw some of the same agents who always seem to be there and without fail welcome me home each time As I pass through the new station complete with camera and fingerprint ID system the tired looking agent asks me if I have anything to declare Ah not really I did not bring much back OK Good trip he asks Yea great I went over chasing a girl Found her Asked her to marry me She said yes Guy cracks a big smile Man that is great Welcome home And as I strode into the baggage hall I knew what lay ahead It had been a peaceful respite being on Bali But my country is in deep shit on many levels Fixing this place will take a whole lot of Love I would have to live it Not so easy
