topography of the psyche

 

A collection of points were distributed using NETTT archtitecture, across an empty field (x-y plane). Then the points were raised and lowered up and down (along the z-axis), also according to NETTT architecture. The arbitrary distribution of points according to this process renders a document of psyche in the resulting forms which serve as ‘readings’. Since the point placement is arbitrary, the activity becomes a direct channel for all of the aspects of our state that lie outside of our immediate awareness – the subconscious, the unconscious, habits, mood, personality, environment, and on. All of the aspects of ourselves that operate automatically and, on a day-to-day basis, without much direct attendance.

Diagrams of psyche. They are meant to be artworks, and that is the mode within which interpretations may be understood. Pre-language, sensation, ‘vibe’. The way that meaning is encoded in artwork – for example, how playing a certain song will evoke powerful memories.
