The Day Before Drawing Day … and Musings on Primtings

Right now I’m eating a late breakfast of ?? - supposedly “limited edition” as made by the owner of a famous Taiwanese ?? store.  (Made once a year for Dragon Day.) I’m already in the mood for drawing day… and I can almost hear the sounds of the nostalgic beach from memory where I spent the precious hours of one summer doing beach-side sketches on-the-spot for the passer-by’s… as I ran away from the research I should have been doing for NSF/REU…

I’m thinking about Primtings and pieces I want to interpret in 3d. I woke up at 3 AM and one of the first sites I visited forced a popup of google.com’s homepage with:

This might just be the primting I’ll make. ;-)

Well, more importantly, I’m thinking about my vision for Primtings and defining a new art movement. So Duchamp launched the “readymade” art movement, and everyone on SL takes snapshots that blend their own figures and interpretation into a 3d piece… now what would it be like if people can obtain parts of a painting to do what they want with it and create their own interpretive extensions? That’s sort of the trend with the web nowadays - it’s all about mashup’s and what you create from the new interpretation of old information. There’s the old “open source” referring to source code, and then there’s “open (source) knowledge” (Wikipedia) and… might the new thing be “open (source) art”?

“If everyone contributes to something, then the piece belongs to everyone.”
