SOME OF YOU HAVE BEEN CHALLENGED BY MAKING A COMMENT.
AJUSTMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE TO ASSIST MAKING COMMENTS USER FRIENDLY.
THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE, AND PLEASE MAKE COMMENTS
Thanks Glen,. Somehow I could not comment. Had to register with some other site.
Anyway, the group of pix above have a theme that i like; that is the biomorphic resemblance to pre-vertebrate life forms. Vertebrate forms tend to have bi-lateral symmetry . A lot of your forms are spiral or radial, indicative of stationary organisms like plants. This is a different architectural organizing principal than clasical humaism, which uses bi-lateral symmetry, the model being the shape of man.
Abstract moderism. parametrics, constructivism, etc, derive from machines, graphic art and computer modeling software. These are not modeled from life-forms. The focas is on the instruments, not the end; the tail wagging the dog is the cliche.
good to be back,,, eric

TRY AGAIN AND LET ME KNOW THE RESULTS.
Always good to see your posts Geln.
always good to see your postings
NICE TO SEE YOU ARE COMMENTING AGAIN.
YOUR ANALOGY TO NATURE VS. MACHINES IS CORRECT. ALTHOUGH I DEFINITELY LIKE MACHINES TO GET INSPIRATION FORMS. I TOOK MY CLASS TO A MECHANIC THAT TORE ENGINES APART WHEN THEY WERE SEEKING UNIVERSAL BEAUTY. THE GIRL THAT LIKED THAT AESTHICS DID A DESIGN, BUT IT WAS BONGED BY THE PUBLIC.
THAT IS WHY MOST PEOPLE FIND ANYTHING MACHINE LIKE DISTANT TO THEIR TASTE . JUST HUMAN NATURE.
BUT I ALWAYS THOUGHT MY DESIGNS OVERCAME THAT WITH CURVES AND FLOWING SHAPES. BUT EVEN THAT IS REJECTED BECAUSE IT IS NOT FAMILIAR.
A TOUGH THING TO SELL TO THE MASSES. BUT I WILL KEEP TRYING.
THANKS FOR THE COMMENT. I WROTE A COMMENT AND IT WAS REJECTED.
SO HERE IS TO HOPING THE COMMENT WILL POST.
NATURE FORMS VS MACHINE FORMS, I LIKE BOTH, BUT THE NATURE FORMS HAVE FLOWING LINES THAT I THOUGHT WOULD BE UNIVERSAL BEAUTY. BUT THE MASSES REJECT FOR NOT BEING FAMILIAR.
BUT I WILL KEEP TRYING.
Happy New Year to you Glen! I am thankful your doing so well and the world is closer to seeing your biomorphic dreams realized!
