Surreal Thursday: What the Doctor Ordered

 

Surreal: having the disorienting, hallucinatory quality of a dream; unreal; fantastic, phantasmagorical, uncanny, intense hyper-reality, unexpected juxtapositions and non sequitur. Characteristics associated with art and literature created by founders and followers of cultural movement known as Surrealism.

What If Wednesday : Some Implied Spaces

 

A gallery of some images from my blog, Implied Spaces. Implied Spaces is a term that derives from art and architecture. It has since expanded into the area of 3D modelling and the concept has implications for Mass Media, literature, sociology and other cultural studies. Creatively, it is the place where new and unexpected modes come into being. For example, the creation of the internet was first intended to serve as a means of connecting computers for research and military/security purposes. None of the original designers or first users could have conceived of blogs, Facebook, Twitter or any of the integrated social media and art forms that would come be generated and occupy the space now known as the Internet. Much in the same way that a corner in a room can become home of a spider web or the space between two paving stones becomes a niche for a plant to root,  new mass  media forms evolved in new spaces.

Clicking any of the images will take you to the original Implied Space post – they will open in  a new tab.
