"meditative space"

Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

It has no purpose, function or meaning.

The whole meditative foray into 'negative space' was really trippy and I guess one would have to go there to find that out for themselves - although I wouldn't recommend it to any one who doesn't live the Neutrality Principle. True void where the Creative is silent and conspicuously absent.

As for the renderings themselves, they're just pieces of wood I used to capture negative space and don't really represent the subject matter of the work. Although I really have a blast shaping, carving and fitting everything together, they're nothing more than Meditative Space-Craft.

HELP!...I'm trapped in a roundabout of artsy pretentiousness and the only exit is satiated self-indulgence!

There are some incredible green intuition concepts encompassing Meditative Movement (see Larkey et al) where some countries in Asia,and in some parts of UK are actually constructing what may be called a version of "Meditative Space" where the external environment is architecturally transformed and unites with the intrinsic self personal state of being to magnify this intersection of internal/external, both altering and feeding off each other not unilke the yin-yang symbol.

The Forest Walking concept/tradition (japan) where being in nature, the exhange of CO2/oxygen, the fresh air breeze against your skin, the natural internal/exchange and symbiotic euphoria in and out within the cosmos,

Getting kinda tired of chasing something that isn't there...until it is

The time spent in the meditative phase, and then the interpretive process of defining the experience hasn't all been wasted. But the only solid take-away I have from the last six months of exploring negative space in mind and medium is that more is less and less is more. All the rest of what is written about and 'explained' by the educated experts really is just artsy fartsy bullshit.

The idea goes way back in time to prehistoric hand prints that are preserved in caves in different parts of the world. Whatever the meanning is/was to the people that made them, they elicit the same curiosity and searching eyes that modern renderings of negative space are intended to inspire.

Those conclusions (my own) have pointed to the exit off the roundabout of artsy pretentiousness, and to resuming the journey of "meditative space craft". So this is one for the road:

I had a couple of the previous pieces in an art exhibition and auction. This one was commssioned by a guy who wanted something "...really unique and different". I told him; "in that case, I'll make one out of scraps and short chunks I have laying around." He was hesitant to agree - probably thinking I was offended or whatever by the request - but laid his money down anyway.

The horns are purpleheart laminated in two layers with american walnut tips and brow. The mount is arctic birch suspended between laminates of black walnut, red cedar, and hickory outer layers.
