Psychopompistic Ballistic Draws ever Closer

Some things You may like to know.

What is a Pyschopomp?
Better I refer to someone else's words. So to go for the most accessible source I'll give you a link to WIKI land. Psychopomp.

Why a Psychopomp?
The reason I have called the show what I have, comes from thinking about why I make work and what creativity is. I do not plan on writing a thesis here, and will only touch on things as they seem appropriate.
A Psychopomp's role is to assist in transporting someone from one state to another. It this betweenness I am interested in. It is personification of the moment of creation.
I am exploring to see if I fit in somewhere in this world. This is something noticeably left out of my practice till now. It is not a portrait of an artist but an artist becoming the art.


In previous posts I have shown images of drawings made from indexical marks made from my face, or a face print.
I have been thinking of the skin as a another liminal zone and there for the site of creation, where it transforms into something different.

Well, this writing seems to be fizzling, so I am going to stop. But this is only a beginning...

This is such a usefull resource for researching audio gear. I have only scratched the surface of its gargantuan content. It has detailed info with a little about history and specs, it also has great comment section at the bottom where you get lots of little "reviews". Another great point is the fact that it  is not just "vintage" but some newer gear to.
I just wanted to share this.
