By Way of Which

Directed at
States of affairs
Immanent objectivity

Conscious human beings are not merely affected by environmental conditions, but are also conscious of things as things: physical objects and events, selves and other persons, and abstract thoughts and propositions. Establishing a relationship to existence, most of the events that comprise mental life have this distinguishing attribute of being “of” or “about” something.

“Intentionality is what characterizes consciousness in the pregnant sense and which, at the same time, justifies designating the whole stream of mental processes as the stream of consciousness and as the unity of one consciousness.” – Edmund Husserl

Dormitive Power

Object expression
Possibility intercept
Encounter assimilation

In an aesthetic frame of mind, there are logical similarities between psychological and physical descriptions. Approached from a receptive angle, unconventional hypotheticals become veracious.

“Prediction and explanation are exactly symmetrical. Explanations are, in effect, predictions about what has happened; predictions are explanations about what’s going to happen.” – John Rogers Searle


Particular specified form
Certain divergent respects
Iteration identity sequence

In an attempt to augment individual uniqueness over sameness, names and numbers can help to establish a relational identity, as mere labels for a set of problems. Gottfried Leibniz established the modern formulation of identity, stipulating that x is the same as y if and only if every predicate true of x is true of y as well. Of course, truth is just as slippery as equivalence.

“Ordinary people are products of their environment and fit in. Artists transcend their environment and stand out.” – Oliver Gaspirtz

Surging Progression

Implicit feature
Essential entity
Surface disturbance

Consciousness exists to the extent a human experiences it. At natural interface boundaries, the nature of the relation between subjective human reality and objective independent reality comes alive. In consciousness, phenomenal appearance is reality.

“Where conscious subjectivity is concerned, there is no distinction between the observation and the thing observed.” – John Rogers Searle

Natural Flow

Repeated cycles
Generally portrayed
Different seasonal aspects

Narrowly focused on immediate and present conditions, the idea of time as consisting of endlessly reiterated oscillations is perhaps useful.

“Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why.” – Kurt Vonnegut

Mechanical Adipose

Fuel provision
Energy repository
Future use

Our descriptions of existence are necessarily insufficient, circular, or contradictory. Such inherent limitations of understanding do not render actuality any less real.

“Caches aren’t architecture, they’re just optimization.” – Rob Pike

A Composition

Inner velocity
Will to visualize
Spirit an artifact

Reduced abstract geometric forms and color shapes are basic-visual elements evident in the realm of architecture.

“True artistic experience is never passive, for the spectator is obliged to participate, as it were, in the continuous or discontinuous variations of proportions, positions, lines and planes.” – Theo van Doesburg

Mercado Callejero

Fresh produce
Wedged in space
Morns that pass by

Going back through images captured years earlier always excavates things overlooked. Creative development adopts and utilizes its changing criteria of meaning and truth.

“The ordinary consciousness conceives things as being, and studies them in quality, quantity, and measure. These immediate characteristics, however, soon show themselves to be not fixed but transient; and Essence is the result of their dialectic.” – Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Stark Realities

Complete degree
Plain appearance
Very obvious

In contiguous cultivation of temporality, collaborating with an earlier version of myself, constant adjustment of tendency and predilection render the present juncture extremely interesting.

“Minimalism is the constant art of editing your life.” – Danny Dover


Momentous occasion
Level of anticipation
Experience of seeing

Going to the root of things, interesting objects present themselves in the gallery. By breaching common sense, reflexiveness provides grounding for the uncertainties of cognizance.

“Imagination is the source of every form of human achievement.” – Ken Robinson
