Anti-Utopias | J.D. Doria – Painting as Multitude (the Umwelt series) | The Aesthetic Ground | Scoop.it
Xaos's insight:

Core
Painting, in its historic nature and form, converges into one image; yet, incorporating technology and cooperative intelligence, allows to expand and examine the medium’s borders beyond the exclusivity of the one image.

Ground
We are at a crossroads, in the ‘middle’ of radical transition. We are crossing over from the development of intelligence, based upon designed constraints, to development of intelligence based upon a complex and rich fabric of opportunities within soft and active reality. In soft and active matter there is no privileged identity, neither an a-priori privileged moment, nor a single-privileged image. There is however an ambiguous zone, there are fuzzy landscapes, non-linear intuitions and bifurcating events, so we need to develop an intelligence that curates becoming as a multitude.

Structure
Painting as a Multitude is the technique I am using to explore the moods and tides of emergence, where I extend the act of authoring upon technology and collective intelligence, in order to release the fixed artistic constraint of the single image, into a multitude of moments and scales captured in a dynamic evolution. Extending the Artist’s sphere of action-ability through technology and collectivity is a way of radically changing the conditions and possibilities of the painting. With technology, painting becomes a continuous event and a Rhizome-like phenomenon.
