- This Body of Work is still continuing. It started mainly softmore year with the "MIKAELA-BOT PROJECT" and now I think I'm finally understanding my attraction to the act of making a self portrait
Parallelism: (philosophiol) A doctrine advanced to explain the relation between mind and body according to which mental processes vary concomitantly with simultineous physiological processes. This general description is applicable to all forms of the theory More strictly it assumes that for every mental change there exists a correlated neural change, and it denies any causal relation between the series of conscious processes and the series of processes of the nervous system, acknowledging, however, causation within each series. It was designed to obviate the difficulties encountered by the diverse interaction theories Moreover, no form of parallelism admits the existence of a spiritual substance of a substantial soul. Some regard consciousness as the only reality, the soul which is but an actuality, as the sum of psychic acts whose unity consists in their coherence. Others accept the teaching of the fundamental identity of mind and body, regarding the two corresponding series of psychical and physical processes as aspects of an unknown series of real processes. Thus mind and body are but appearances of a hidden underlying unity. Finally there are those who hold that the series of conscious states which constitute the mind is but an epiphenomenon, or a sort of by-product of the bodily organism.
Parallelism, psychophysical: (Cr parallelos, from para, beside -- allelon, of one another). A dualistic solution of the mind body problem which asserts, in its extreme form, a perfect one-to-one correlation between the system of physical events in nature and the system of psychical events in mind. In its more moderate and restricted form, parallelism asserts only a correlation between all psychoses (mental events in an individual mind) and all or some neuroses (neural events in the individual's body). Thus there may exist physico-chemical and even neural processes in the body having no psychical correlates The term parallelism was introduced by Fechner.
- My interests in parallel dimensions, time, images and space came more pronounced later
ALL THIS WORK WAS DONE DURING 2008, SOFTMORE YEAR AT RINGLING COLLEGE
Video stills of a stop animation I did of the construction of Mikaela-bot
WORK THAT WAS INSPIRED BY "MIKAELA-BOT
VIDEOVIDEO STILLS FROM THE 2 PART FILM, "THE ADVENTURE"
DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY:"HEART OF MIKAELA-BOT"

"THE ALTERNATE SERIES"
THIS IS WORK THAT CAME LATER ON OUT OF THE EXPERIENCE WITH "MIKAELA-BOT", WHICH INSPIRED MUCH WORK
"DR. CREATURE'S ANATOMY CHART", This piece was in "Implacable Creature" in the Crossley Gallery in 2008 that featured myself and fellow artist Amanda L. Seckington. The Gallery is located in Sarasota, Fl. on the Ringling Campus
"PORTAL TO ALEAKIM & TOTEM"-----MIXED MEDIA!
Mixed Media pieces on paper/ canvas and fabric stretched over wood
This is a video still from a stop animation that I did with the painting with cut paper cars driving across the painting uphill into the empty eye sockets of the portrait
This drawing became an installation later on.....the installation was installed in the South Florida Museum
"THE BATTLE OF NAIL VS GLUE, A LOVE STORY"
Includes 18 illustrations and texts--The text consisted of written narration and fortunes. The illustrations were produced with the monotype process and reworking. 10 by 10 in. Watercolor, Gauche, pencil, acrylic, collage on cotton rag paper
