NOTE:
The panels are dark blue black with silver iridescence paint
and
the application of the paint are of overlapping layers
creating visual turbulence.
Each panel is marked with a hand drawn orange red pencil line. 
The panels are mounted on archival board.
The internal interstices / interplay of the panels
creates a pause, a silence, a leap, a focal of listening.
The spaces  between and the lines upon are significant.
The orange red line is in flux as the black blue roils.

All is shifting

and,

yet,

a serene balance

is

ACTUAL

whole.

reFRAME / reFRAMING

 

X

The essential idea behind reFRAMING
is that a specific crystallized demographic / person’s
point-of-view depends
on the frame it is viewed in.

X

When the frame is shifted,

the meaning changes

and

thinking

and

behavior

often change along with it.

X

Another way to understand
the concept of reFRAMING
is to imagine looking through
the frame of a camera lens.

X

The picture seen through the lens
can be
changed and reshaped
to views / experiences
of

nascent truths 

and
expansive sensory possibilities

via

EXPLORING

 an unfixed exponential spectrum
of lenses from various
angles/distances/emotional/empirical/empathetic/spiritual

KALEIDOSCOPIC

vantage points.

X

By the willingness
of even slightly changing
what is seen in the camera,
the once
‘conditioned’ / clung to’ / ‘conventional / ‘fixed’
cognitive and LIVED picture

IS

NOW

viewed
and
experienced
differently.

aNEW.

YES!

Steve Reich – Come Out 1966

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Come_Out_(Reich)

X

Reich was asked to edit down tape footage into a form of collage for a benefit for the Harlem Six and Come Out was a byproduct of the collage’s production.[1] The Harlem Six were six black youths arrested for a murder of Margit Sugar, a Hungarian refugee, in Harlem in the weeks following the Little Fruit Stand Riot of 1964.[2] Only one of the six was responsible while the lead witness is generally considered the actual perpetrator. Truman Nelson, a civil rights activist and New Yorker who had asked Reich to compose a sound collage that was separate from Come Out, gave him a collection of tapes with recorded voices to use as source material. Nelson agreed to give Reich creative freedom with the tapes that he presented him for the sound collage. Come Out was a loop of four seconds of the more than 70 hours of tapes Nelson presented to Reich.[3]

Please Stop ‘Checking In to See If I’m Okay’

Whatever you think I might be feeling because of the news right now,
it’s not new for me this week.
https://www.thecut.com/2020/06/i-dont-need-your-check-in-texts.html
About a week ago, I called a friend on the East Coast,
another black woman working in public radio,
to talk about something weird that was happening.
“Hey, are you getting a bunch of texts
from random white people asking if you’re okay?” I asked.
“What? No,” she said. “You are?”
I told her that I’d heard from a handful of people,
some of whom I hadn’t communicated with for months,
saying they couldn’t imagine the pain I must be feeling.
That they were here for me if I needed them.
I thought maybe this was just a thing people were doing in hyperwoke Oakland.
But then the next day,
that friend sent me a screenshot from one of her friends with the same language,
“Can’t imagine how black people are feeling. I’m so sorry.”
Another friend got a text from someone
she hadn’t spoken to in six years that noted
that she was “important” and called her “a queen.”
