the avante garde poets, artists,and musicians like Olson,
Picasso, and Cage were into systematic chance operations
and this displacing kind of super collage. Three avante
garde waves have been practising this new style. I'm
in the third wave.
great systems thinkers like Greory Bateson, Norbert
Wiener and Kenneth Boulding saw that combinations, harmonies,
and discords between successive pieces and layers of
information would present many problems of survival
and would determine many directions of evolutionary
change both good and bad. This is miles away from Newton
and Descartes with their machine reductionist visions....
how I fuse systems science and avante garde art. This
chance combination of disconnected elements. Elements
disconnected by big trauma in this modern era. This
chance re-combination will emerge into this new cultural
mandala to replace the shattered one we're living in
today. One that has reached the limits of its usefulness.
