a page from my notebook – philosophy

not facts but truths

I create time. – Kant

Time creates me. – Bergson

tachyons – particles with speed faster then light.

The most abstract system of philosophy is, in its method and purpose, nothing more than an extremely ingenious combination of natural sounds.

This from my notebook years ago, I am sure I didn’t write it, but there is no notation of who did, unfortunately.

“Sculpture creates space.   That shapes intended for this purpose, properly scaled in space, actually creates a greater space.”

“Imagination.  Awareness of the void of our existence. ”  ISAMU NOGUCHI (an antidote to impermanence)

It is the selection and placement that will make of anything a sculpture, even an old shoe.

This picture is a good example of how the landscape is changed by the addition of sculpture. They become the environment in which they are placed. These monolithic sculpted stones are in the Brecon Beacons in Wales. I was fortunate to be able to carry them back to Canada with me sans view of course. How did I manage it? Just popped them into a coat pocket, they are only 4″ in height.

These intimate watercolours (4×6″), were done in 1988 on a hiking tour through the Brecon Beacon’s in Wales.
