Not bad. Looks like something from the HST

Wow, I took a peep at the sight. I have many shots that are very similar to those space images. What a coincidence.

Mind you, all my images are actually images of Kois;)

The latest pic I posted at www.artofrar.blogspot.com is that of Michael Jackson.

Is that the British Isles?

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Haha, it is just a school of Kois.

Oh, it looks like debris from the latest tsunami in Japan. No pun and no imagination.

Hahaha

People who appreciate this kind of art must have a fertile imagination like Anon and Patriot.

Wonder who else and what interpretation they will share with us.

Art is in the eyes of the beholder. Those who appreciate will pay millions for them. Those who don't would spit at them.

That is why it is called art. Would you buy a picture of an old newspaper cutting that is called art?

With his art Of RAR redbean has unknowingly stumbled upon the human phenomena of patternicity -- the automatic mechanism in the human brain to form patterns and associate those patterns with already-known abstracts. ref [1], [2]

Around 45% of the brains 'processing power' is devoted to vision -- stereoscopic vision. Our brain actually constructs a visual model 'reality' enabling us to 'make sense' of our immediate environment without even consciously being aware of what is going on internally.

Patternicity enables us to survive -- to stay alive by responding to perceived threats. However it is also the mechanism which leads to cognitive biases, erroneous supposition and pre-suppositions. It is theorised that patternicity plays a key role in our natural tendency toward superstition and mysticism.

However, without patternicity we probably would not be able to appreciate art and music. So give me cognitive biases and an imperfect "clever-monkey" consciousness any day.

Machines may be 'perfect' at performing certain things, but they cannot feel (not yet). I am human, not a machine.

Me thinks that Redbean had a premonition of an impending event with his discovery of the 4th Dimension, however, no one, himself included was able to link it to the tsunami that came after his(Redbean) discovery or invention.

Me still is of the impression that the attached picture looks like floating debris in the Ocean. Maybe i am over imaginative.

Abstarct art can be antying to aynone. Ya it lkoos like derbis and a antsumi. How come I nver thikn of taht?

Sure you can read the above. Another form of patternicity: )

Abstract art leaves a lot of room to the viewer to play with. A little guessing, a little mystery, a little of nothing.

Matilah_Singapura said...

Absolutely correct. Patriot (stand up take a bow) has demonstrated the human brain phenomena of patternicity.

Me? I immediately associated the image with a picture from Hubble.

You start with a pool of koi, a camera and a crazy artist -- he creates the image. The individuals' brains in the audience -- without even consciously directing their minds or having any control in the process -- automatically find patterns in the image.

Awesome!

Ahem, not crazy artist lah. Simply ingenious!
