FAHRENHEIT 11 / 9 by Michael Moore

TRAILER 
I saw the latest Michael Moore movie, Fahrenheit 11 / 9,  this week-end when Paul Manafort agreed to collaborate with Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller and Superior Court Judge nominee Brett Kavanaugh is accused of assaulting a young girl while intoxicated during the last millennium.

Most Americans and many around the world are revolted that an unnamed criminal co-conspirator sits in the White House with access to nuclear weapons that could destroy the world within a few minutes. But how did he get there? In his own style of investigative journalism Michael Moore sets out to review recent history to understand this unprecedented occurrence.

There is a lot going on at once in the movie so it is difficult to streamline the evidence he his showing us. He begins by blaming singer Gwen Stefani for pushing Donald Trump to bid for the presidency because she was being paid more by NBC to appear on The Voice than he was to star in The Apprentice.

Although many feel that Moore is biased in his effort to destroy Trump for me he was fair enough to make me understand why people who had voted Democrat in 2008 and 2012 voted for Trump in 2016. There are many clips showing democrats shutting down people asking them legitimate questions instead of answering their constituents in the way those voters expected to be answered. This element of the equation he brings home with Flint Michigan. For the past several years, a project to privatize the provision of drinking water to the citizens of Flint that was initiated by Michigan Governor Rick Snyder has left them with poisoned water. Since then almost everyone in Flint has suffered lead poisoning. The clips showing then President Barack Obama's visit to Flint was the most troubling scene of the movie for me and I got why Trump was  elected. I have always admired President Obama but I was devastated by his speech and subsequent disregard for the people of Flint.

Videos about Flint Michigan on Youtube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwVO3mn5QR4  money made by contractors

By the end of the movie what gave me hope were the American people themselves, rising up by the millions to demand better service from their elected officials. Democracy must never be taken for granted anywhere at any time.

Opening this weekend in selected Theatres.

THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING & LIFE / How will 2018 midterm elections affect Mike Pence?

Left: Mike Pence Right: Donald Trump. Image taken from this page where their body language is analyzed. Trump often places his hands on Pence. A fascinating feature since Mike Pence is extremely homophobic.
FRANÇAIS app de traduction à gauche

I have been studying astrology in my own way since the last millennium. My way of understanding the various definitions of planets, signs and other objects of a birth chart has always been to put them in perspective with the lives of famous people and to compare the celestial events to the events in their lives. This approach has permitted me to compare what astrology means with what we now know about the forces of the world via physics. It is my understanding that any Theory Of Everything must include our individual lives and collective lives.

This year's US midterm elections will be pivotal for many reasons. While many people are blinded to President Donald Trump's misdeeds, the law seems to be closing in on him and plenty of Americans want him impeached. As it stands, if Trump does get impeached, it would be Vice President Mike Pence who would be promoted to commander in chief. While going through videos on YouTube I found this CNN interview with Michael D'Antonio who wrote "The Shadow President", co-written with Peter Eisner, where he takes an in depth look at Pence. I found that D'Antonio's insights are supported by Pence's birth chart. Below is the synastry chart between Donald Trump and Mike Pence. Pence's time of birth is not known but it is not needed for this study since I am only concerned with the role of both men on the political stage and Trump's chart is the most important here.

Chart from www.astro.com 

HOW TRUMP AND PENCE FIT TOGETHER

The two are similar on certain points: both are Gemini, both have Mars in Leo. For Mike Pence the eccentricity and wealth of Trump (Trump: Sun conjunct North Node, conjunct Uranus in house 10; trine Jupiter in Libra house 2) electrify Pence's ego symbolized by the Sun and thought processes symbolized by Mercury (Pence's Sun conjunct Mercury on Trump's previous aspects). He feels exuberant optimism about joining the Trump ticket in 2016 for the position of VP. Anyone of us with this alignment would feel exalted by such an apparent opportunity. Pence's Uranus operates in Trump's 12th house. This represents how Mike Pence introduced the influence of wealthy and prominent preachers to the campaign and now the presidency. In Pence's birth chart Saturn is opposed to the Moon. This makes him unpopular on the larger stage of politics, he is reserved, awkward and unconvincing. Pence has a powerful mother complex (Moon opposition Saturn) spiced with latent homosexual preoccupations he totally dissociates from. In his birth chart Mars conjunct Venus square Neptune is one of the astrological signatures of homosexuality. His inner complexes affect his policies and that is problematic. He sincerely believes that God wants him to reform the country, and Donald Trump, to fit scripture BUT the republic is built on a division of church and state policy as outlined in the first amendment of the constitution. Trump also believes he is there to fulfill a "divine" mission although his mission appears to be making money. Interestingly when they formed the ticket in mid-July 2016, Saturn was square Neptune and that represents dubious practices all around. I find it so odd that evangelicals are threatening US citizens with the wrath of God if they vote the GOP and Trump out of power.

On the other hand, Pence perceives himself as a solid intellectual. He sincerely believes he will outsmart Trump and all of us. Pence hates Trump's communicative style. He sees him as superficial, unreliable, moody and lazy. Yet, he is so bedazzled by Trump's big personality that he broke with his own standards to march alongside the president he does not admire as much as he claims. He sold his soul. What struck me next is that Mike Pence's Saturn is square Donald Trump's Neptune a pattern that resurfaces during the presidency so far.

I have done several studies on Donald Trump that go into the impact of Saturn square Neptune on his life and his presidency:
where we see him having a dreadful night on the midterm elections of November 6, 2018.

THE 2018 MIDTERM ELECTIONS

On that same day, November 6 2018, Mike Pence is having a Saturn return Saturn aspect, that represents a major shift in anyone's life, while Trump is experiencing Saturn square Neptune. From astro.com Mike Pence's Saturn conjunct Saturn:

« Consciously or unconsciously, you are pruning your life of everything that is not relevant to what you really are as a human being. If this process is not happening consciously, you may experience a sense of loss for the elements of your life that are coming to an end now. However, do not dwell upon these losses, for they are necessary in order to clear the decks for the major period of action in your life.
This is a time of endings and new beginnings. »

Mike Pence has also embarked on a long transit of Neptune square Sun that began in April 2018 and will last until December 28, 2019. From astro.com:

« This can be a period of confusion and uncertainty in which your life direction becomes unclear. Even if you have previously felt that you knew what you were doing and why, now you may encounter circumstances that force you to question your assumptions. Your will may seem to be temporarily paralyzed, and you won't have your usual energy. In fact this influence can coincide with times of low physical vitality and low psychological energy.
You may experience disappointments in your work, career or even in your home life that make you feel defeated and dispirited. Certainly you may suffer defeats during this time, but these defeats occur only when you do something that is not a true reflection of yourself. Because your total energy as a human being is not behind your actions, you don't push through with the vigor that would guarantee success: hence your failure.
...  this is not a particularly good time to become involved in spiritual or mystical sects.
Any new job you start now would not be an improvement over the present one.»

This aspect will eventually catch up with Trump but in a few years as his Sun is several degrees later. They cannot loose their jobs during the midterm elections but the planets suggest they will loose powerI prefer to quote an astrological text so you will verify objectively what the planets mean as opposed to any bias I may have. What is important so we can learn from this analysis is to observe what the two men will do and say and measure it against what the planetary alignments mean. If they manage to rise above the incredible pressures of the times it could be impressive.

Visiting a World Press Photo exhibition always moves me to the core as the photojournalists who go around the globe bring us views of the world and of human life that run an equally large gamut of emotions. The above photo for example punches me in the gut. The Iraqi Special Forces rescue this tiny naked little boy. During the press tour we were told by Yi Wen Hsia, the director of the exhibition and representative of World Press Photo Amsterdam, that one of those men adopted the child who, like many other children, was used as a human shield.

A few samples of the stories these striking photographs tell us. 
The exhibition is now open in the Old Port's Bonsecours Market everyday until September 30 2018. To get all the details follow this LINK.

THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING & LIFE / Donald Trump 2019

The image on the left is an enhanced Emerge Art that evokes Donald Trump. On the right, one of the many photos found on the internet. The photo on the left was taken October 30 2016. The reason I include Emerge Art in these articles about the Theory of Everything is that it is a microcosm on how particles interact with gravitational fields. There is an unexplained physics at work in the water but at this time I can only show the effects of this physics. Science is not there yet. 
FRANÇAIS app de traduction à gauche

Donald Trump is the perfect human being to illustrate how the Alignment Geometry of Celestial Mechanics ( AGCM ) moves gravity and affects human life. In mundane terms, his life illustrates how Astrology works brilliantly. Basically astrologers studied meaning while astronomers studied the physical attributes of the solar system and the stars. Both discipline rely on mathematics to map out the trajectories of objects in the universe. Meaning plays a big part in science but scientists are stuck on the concept of  measurement.

On the left you see the Solar Return chart of M. Trump for the year 2019. It is a focused and dramatic design containing powerful aspects: the opposition from the Midheaven and Nadir, the kite ant the T square. I will only consider the elements that relate to the presidency to keep the analysis on point. 

The Capricorn 10th house contains a heavy karmic load. The Solar Return will manifest after the first hit of Saturn in Capricorn square his natal Jupiter in Libra ( 26 February 2019 ). This transit brings legal, financial and business losses. It means lack of support from those in authority and problems with the law. There is another exact hit on July 6 2019 with a final blow on November 25 2019. This suggests the color the Saturn position in the Capricorn 10th house will take, one of a serious downfall. This is augmented by the presence of Pluto which enhances the karmic load. The conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in the 10th house is opposed by Mercury conjunct North Node conjunct Mars in the 4th house. This is a sign of great turmoil, verbal and physical violence. For Trump the human being, this is devastating as the aspects cause ill health. I believe he has been fairly healthy all his life but this is devastating. There is Neptune and Chiron in 12th house suggesting M. Trump will be better off away from public affairs and in retirement. He will not be fit for office as his emotional and physical state will be very erratic. The kite aspect is dominant with a Grand Trine softening the opposition. Traditionally it protects the person undergoing the opposition that forms the kite. In this case, all the helpful planets forming the Grand Trine are afflicted: the Moon in house 7, the public mood, opposes Uranus in house 1 indicating the erratic explosive behavior of M. Trump. Neptune is in house 12, the house of self-undoing, Neptune is very powerful in his own sign and ruling his own house. It is activated by a powerful T square aspect from Jupiter also in his own sign and house, the house of the law; and the Sun in Gemini house 3, the house ruled by Gemini, forms the 3rd point of pressure. M. Trump will believe himself above the law even as he is obviously in seclusion wether in hospital, house arrest or jail. From what we know of him, I suspect he will tweet like a madman while in reclusion. His Grand Trine will protect him so he will have many privileges afforded to him others don't get.

His case is fascinating because his life is very complex yet it can be reduced to a few powerful AGCM that can account for everything that happens to him as an individual and the country he rules at the time I write these observations.

On the right, the Solar Return chart of the USA. The opposition that brought a heavy karma to the president is still very strong. The land and productivity are in serious jeopardy but the American Spirit is ignited by the trine of the Moon in Leo to Jupiter in Sagittarius conjunct the nadir. Sagittarius is the USA's Ascendent. Saturn in 4th house slows down the recovery; "alternate truth" plagues advancement; the cruelty unleashed in many Americans will lead to verbal and physical confrontations. It will take a long time for the country to recover but it will.

7 jours pas plus


, ,  sont les interprètes du film de  7 jours pas plus. Pierre est un vieux garçon ancré dans ses souvenirs, ses habitudes et sa petite quincaillerie quand, lors d'une course, il se trouve seul avec Ajit qui se fait jeter hors d'un véhicule en marche après un attentat. Pierre résiste à chaque tournant de ses efforts inutiles à avoir des sentiments envers cet Indien qui ne parle pas un mot de français. Cette même résistance à l'amour se manifeste auprès de Jeanne qui est tombée amoureuse de lui quand même.

Un film très pertinent quand on pense à toutes ces migrations qui sont en train de chavirer toutes les races et toutes les cultures. Le film, que j'ai beaucoup aimé et qui m'a fait éclater de rire par moments, nous rappelle néanmoins l'essentiel, nous sommes HUMAINS avant tout.

Au Cinéma Beaubien dès ce vendredi 17 août.

Emerge Art VS « The Most Unknown » now on NETFLIX

TRAILER 
FRANÇAIS app the traduction à gauche

Since August 10 you can see the fascinating documentary movie The Most Unknown on NETFLIX. It is presented as an experiment. In the movie, we meet nine scientists from world renowned institutions who reveal both the questions that motivate them and the answers science has given them so far. I enjoyed the movie very much and I really liked the featured scientists.

The questions they formulate are the same questions I ask myself as a transdisciplinary artist. The difference between my research and theirs is that I get startling evidence from my experiments. My "triumph" ends there because my evidence does not fit the current standard demanded by the world renowned institutions that have hired the scientists who do not provide that much evidence, mostly they have well formulated hypothesis. So I will pit their hypothesis to the featured Emerge Art The Woman on the train.

An Emerge Art sequence taken October 29 2017. I call it The Woman On The Train because I have the impression the beautiful face that appears in the shade is looking out the window of a vehicle in motion. This sequence is uninterrupted and illustrates the magic at work that draws the face. We see the installation, the evolution from abstract to coherence to dissolution.  © Lena Ghio, 2018 
The first question of interest is asked by David D'Angelo, PhD, physicist at Università degli Studi di Milano. What is Dark Matter? It is a fascinating question because millions of dollars are invested in the research to find and describe dark matter. So far, it is only a hypothesis.

No one invests in Emerge Art, a practice inspired by the ancient and universal art of scrying that I began experimenting after having made some stunning photographs of water creating totally unexplainable images. Scientists wonder if atoms of dark matter fill outer space. I wonder what is the force in water that behaves so creatively as to produce a stunning and coherent human portrait? Everybody dismisses the question because in our era, it has been universally accepted that water DOES NOT draw human faces. The contemporary brain edits its rational explanation from cited scientific sources to justify why this cannot be real. BUT institutions get millions in funds to find dark matter that is, at this point, only a hypothesis and that is "smart".

This is the most coherent image of the mysterious traveler. I have filtered it to make it lighter so you can see how incredible she is. The original is dark but the beautiful face can still be seen. The face is not a refraction or reflection from an image in my living room. It is an autonomous phenomena I have photographed. © Lena Ghio, 2018 
Next we meet Axel Cleeremans, PhD, cognitive psychologist at Université libre de Bruxelles. He asks the age old question: What IS consciousness? He is visited by David D'Angelo who becomes an excited and willing subject in the current exploration by Cleeremans. For example, one test is about making a robotic hand move by the subjects brain. Fascinating!

Emerge Art, water, gives us another clue about What IS consciousness? in that it responds to the installations that I place around the bowl of water with sentience and coherence. Men, since the beginning of thought have always taken it for granted that ONLY THEY were endowed with intelligence. Human females are still not recognized as having intelligence in some parts of the world today! So this leaves contemporary science unable to even conceive that consciousness, intelligence, may exist outside the confines of the human brain! Emerge Art suggests consciousness does exist outside the human brain. I ask myself: What if our brains are magnificent receptors and translators of consciousness instead of the cause of it?

A still collage of the above process. Click on the images or gifs above to see the amazing details. © Lena Ghio, 2018 
Then we meet Dr. Luke McKay, PhD, astrobiologist at Montana University. He asks the other timeless question: Are we alone in the universe? Although Emerge Art has not given an image response to this question, it suggests that there is a force at large that creates. We can document it in water as in Emerge Art. I ask: does this creative force permeate the universe? What role does it play, or did it play, in the origins of life? What we do know for sure is that all the life that we are aware of on earth depends on water to exist.

Finally I conclude my debate with the work of Jun Ye, PhD, physicist at University of Colorado-Boulder and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. He talks about quantum physics,   Einstein's theory of relativity, and the most refined clocks being developed at this time. In quantum physics atoms can be observed as being either a wave or a particle. I ask: What are we looking at in this complex phenomenon occurring in water, waves, particles or that place where the atom shifts from one form to the other?

I hope you will take time to see this excellent film playing now on NETFLIX.

Rafael Lozano-Hemmer / Présence Instable @ MAC > 09.09.2018

 Rafael Lozano-Hemmer ( centre ) nous guide dans son oeuvre Zoom Pavilion, 2015 / Photos  © Lena Ghio, 2018

Pulse Spiral, 2008,

Le Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal réussit un coup avec l'exposition individuelle de Rafael Lozano-Hemmer / Présence Instable. L'artiste mexicain installé à Montréal est célébré autour du monde. En visitant l'exposition vous comprendrez pourquoi. C'est la plus grande exposition individuelle de l'artiste jamais présentée au Canada et aux États-Unis. Elle rassemble un corpus de vingt et une oeuvres significatives réalisées dans les dernières dix-huit années. Parmi celles-ci vous trouverez des installations immersives à grande échelle. 

En visitant le Musée, vous vivrez une expérience inédite dans laquelle vous serez appelé à interagir avec l'exposition pour devenir partie intégrante de l'oeuvre. 

Par exemple la captivante installation Pulse Spiral ( gauche ) qui scintille et vibre comme une rivière au coucher du soleil tout en captant les battements de coeur de ceux qui interactent avec.









Vicious Circular Breathing, 2013
La pièce monumentale Vicious Circular Breathing( droite ) m'a fascinée pour un autre raison mais je ne l'essaierai jamais car il faut entrer dans une chambre pour vivre l'expérience de respirer de l'air recyclé dans laquelle s'ajoute le CO2 de chaque nouveau visiteur.  Trop étouffant pour moi mais l'artiste dit que plusieurs personnes ont osé l'expérience.

Ma pièce coup de coeur est Call on Water . ( plus bas ). Dans un bassin vaporeux au fond d'une pièce sombre se manifestent des motifs éloquents dans l'eau inlassable. Tantôt un poème se dessine tantôt c'est un motif abstrait qui captive l'imaginaire. C'est magnifique! 








Call on Water, 2016 
Ce qui m'a interpellée le plus c'est la compréhension exceptionnelle de l'humain que possède l'oeuvre de Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. Je suis devenue très émue par les éléments qui nous unissent tous un à l'autre comme les battements de coeur, l'eau, le besoin de respirer. Cet aspect de son oeuvre la rend sublime sans qu'on ne se rend compte qu'on vient d'être touché par quelque chose d'inéffable.

Il décrit sa pratique axée sur la participation et les médias numériques de « language de notre époque ».

Les commissaires de l'exposition sont: Lesley Johnstone, chef des expositions et de l'éducation au MAC, François LeTourneux, conservateur adjoint au MAC, et Rudolf Frieling, conservateur des arts médiatiques au San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA).

Parmi les nouveautés proposées cet été: il faut visiter le site https://chronologie.macm.org/ qui retrace la merveilleuse histoire de l'art contemporain exposé au MAC, ainsi que le nouveau blogue mené par Marjolaine Bourdua https://macm.org/blogue.

Finalement vous pourrez voir deux expositions composées des oeuvres de la collection permanente du MAC Seuls ensemble et Les prophètes jusqu'au 26 août 2018.

Situé sur l'Île Sainte - Hélène, au Parc Jean - Drapeau, le Musée Stewart  est un lieu où on peut retracer l'histoire du Canada et par conséquent, les nations qui ont contribué à son évolution. David Macdonald Stewart fonde le Musée en 1955. 

Pour nous, l'île est un espace d'évasion pleine d'oiseaux et verte. L'été est un moment sans pareil pour se rendre sur le site où vous pouvez profiter des aménagements tout en visitant les expositions permanentes et ponctuelles. 




Cet été on rassemble des artefacts, des livres, des oeuvres d'art qui nous transportent jusqu'aux pieds de Louis XIV et Madame de la Pompadour! 

C'est totalement fascinant de voir les beaux objets qui ont survécu au temps là devant nous comme on peut imaginer le roi les regardant comme nous.

Dès votre arrivée, vous récupérez un catalogue qui vous permet de lire les histoires attachées à chaque objet. 

J'ai adoré les gravures qui illustrent comment les artistes et les gens interprétaient des concepts comme les saisons, les directions, les professions différentes. 


Profitez des beaux jours pour voir cette merveilleuse exposition qui durera jusqu'au 24 mars 2019.  Pour toutes informations suivez ce lien.

Aussi il reste deux soirs pour voir  L'International des Feux Loto-Québec 2018  à partir de l'Île Sainte - Hélêne:
Mercredi 1er août - Feux de l'Italie - Le songe italien 
Mercredi 8 août - Finale des Étoiles Loto-Québec

At the movies this week-end


Mary Shelley



It is unavoidable that historical dramas are tainted by a modern perspective. It is hard to endure the sexism of that time even though the movie is very beautiful to look at. The two lovers: writer Mary Shelley played by Elle Fanning and poet Percy Shelley played by Douglas Booth: are simply gorgeous and glow with the romanticism of their time. Through their writing they explore the mysteries of life and death that inspired Mary Shelley's iconic character the Creature in Frankenstein or the Modern Prometheus. I enjoyed the movie but I felt it remained superficial since the protagonists of the story were asking such deep and interesting questions.

Shock and Awe
Director: Rob Reiner
Stars: , ,

Rob Reiner is very vocal about how much he deplores the Trump presidency. This film was a sort of cautionary tale about protecting the First amendment and the free press. Unfortunately, this past Monday's ( July 16 2018 ) bizarre summit between Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin seem to take the wind out of the sails of this subdued movie. I found it hard to get into as I was preoccupied following the fallout of what I consider a huge treason on the part of Trump. I am not saying there should not be better relations between countries but, honestly, these relations should not be the fruit of treason.

Astrological insight into the Donald Trump / Vladimir Putin meeting of July 16 2018

This Emerge Art was taken on October 30 2016. Water reacted by creating images that strongly evoked Donald Trump. This image in particular evokes the 45th but in a caricature like way with jackass ears and a weasel face. This is how he is approaching Vladimir Putin on July 16 2018: he has spurned all of the US allies, he has corrupted the GOP even more, he has been ridiculed by huge demonstrations in England while Putin was elegantly hosting the FIFA. The face drawn by water reveals his weakened ego as he will face the man who helped him get elected at the cost of the USA. Photo © Lena Ghio, 2018
First I will summarize the synastry chart between the two men. The synastry chart illustrates how they
Chart drawn by the excellent site www.astro.com 
relate to each other. The red glyphs are Trump and the blue Putin. They combine with each other splendidly: Putin's Libra planets form harmonious trines to Trump's Gemini planets. Their Mercury planet also form aspects of easy communications. Their Mars are exactly trine. This means ease in taking action. Putin's Pluto is very close to Trump's Mars in house 12. The definition of this signature is secretive actions with wide ranging consequences. Mars and Pluto combined equal aggression and war in an hororary horoscope chart. Trump IS aching to become a violent dictator. All normal people who are not under his spell can see he has a bloodlust that he will do anything to satisfy. We can all observe his cavalier cruelty towards American citizens let alone immigrants and their children. Both men are liars as demonstrated by their squares of Neptune: Putin has Neptune square his native Sun and Trump has Neptune square to his native Mercury. The strongest aspect in the synastry is Trump's Jupiter on Putin's Saturn in Libra. We do not know Putin's hour of birth but for Trump this falls in his 2nd house of earned income. Trump looks to Putin to consolidate his interests. This is how he is approaching the meeting of July 16 2018, like a beggar and a traitor to his country.

On that day, Putin is enjoying a powerful trine from Pluto to his native Jupiter enhanced by the recent eclipse in Cancer. He has ALL the cards. Trump on the other hand is damaged by the eclipse that falls in close conjunction to his Saturn in Cancer.

The real question is: What does Vladimir want? Will he really want to support a buffoon like Trump has proven himself to be? If Putin wanted to enhance Russia's standing by helping Trump will he honestly want to pursue an alliance with such a disgraceful leader?

Trump's planets suggest a serious downfall. The law is after him and his treason of the USA is so clear. We can all see that he misjudges almost everything he talks about, he doesn't know how world affairs work, and possesses many flaws a US president should never have on the world stage. Putin is already regarded with suspicion by the world at large so for him it is business as usual.

Pluto has been in a square aspect to their conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Libra since the beginning of the Trump presidency. Their alliance will not prosper. Putin will reap the benefits and Trump will be left to hang by himself with his GOP traitors. Putin does not have to give Trump what Trump wants. After all, Putin has been in it for himself all along.

To resume, and no one will be surprised, the meeting is about Trump begging Putin for help in retaining his power.

E = MC 2, Life and Death

Since May 1 2018 I have been dismantling my life. The process is not over yet and some facets are so embarrassing. I have been living at the same Montreal address since the last millennium. I periodically shared the huge space with my siblings  who moved in and out while one, my only sister, died. During that time I studied painting, sculpture, print making, watercolors, and drawing at the now closed Saidye Bronfman Centre for the Arts. I was not paying attention to the stockpile of art supplies, art works and books I was accumulating. I was also oblivious to the stuff my siblings left behind each time they moved. This summer I have lost all my furniture and about 80% of my books. The past was encrusted in the wood and my books had done serving me. It was time to let it go. I am praying I can still save my artworks that are stuck in my landlord's garage as I wait for a storage unit to be delivered. The wait seems endless. This process led me to the idea I will stretch out for you below: E = MC 2, Life and Death.

I imagined I could live from my art like many artists do. When I began this blog in 2010 I was compelled to understand certain aspects of physics and astrophysics because I now had a digital camera to record phenomenon that were hard to describe without sounding foolish. Case in point, the extraordinary apparition in a bowl of water shown above. When I began creating Emerge Art, I did not know there had been a spiritist art practice in the late 19th century that was cast aside because scientific thought was taking over the 20th century and those who practiced these art forms were considered lunatics. Check this article in French.

I see my transdisciplinary art practice as an exploration of natural manifestations of physics that merit to be understood in scientific terms. Many occurrences that were classified as occult are now documentable and shareable. This changes the perspective about what is going on when an incident like the one above occurs. 

The 19th century understanding was that the phenomena of apparitions in water, mirrors, gases, and so on, that artists of that time could not document directly but perhaps re-create through art, were manifestations of the dead. My 21st century understanding tells me that the "visitations" are unified fields during  moments of pure, intelligent creation

So as I am moving towards an unknown future, like so many humans are doing right now, leaving everything behind, just focusing on staying alive and tuned into the force that creates our lives in the first place, I saw how E = MC 2 applies to my current process and I saw how what I am going through is a life and death metamorphosis we go through once, or often, in a lifetime. 



Gold atoms MORE HERE 
Physics has demonstrated that objects only appear solid from our perspective but that if we look at them at the molecular level we see atoms divided by infinite space. It then occurred to me that the MC 2 of my life was turning into E and that this is the exact thing that happens when we die, symbolically or actually. The MC 2 part of our totality dissolves, fluids escape from our bodies that eventually revert to various elemental molecules.

In this personal process, I am challenging the E of my total being to re-create a new MC 2 for my on-going life. I am trusting my personal power to create events and circumstances as delicious and surprising as those that have defined my blog so far.

I will keep you posted and I hope you will share your rebirth experiences in the comments below.

IX IMMERSION 2018 @SAT What is reality? > 02.06.2018

Luc Courchesne, the curator of the event synthesizes past IX Symposium leading to this fifth one. Phyllis Lambert, famed architect and founder of the Canadian Center for Architecture is listening intently with Monique Savoie, the artistic director of SAT and La Gaieté Lyrique in Paris to the keynote address by Nora Bateson and Eames Demitrios.

I attended the opening cocktail and launch of this year's IX Symposiumhttp://ix.sat.qc.ca/ The opening keynote speakers, Nora Bateson and Eames Demitrios set the stage for the subject that is now being explored during this fifth IX Symposium: What is reality? How do we create reality? How have we learned to edit certain qualities of reality to fit into our biases and preconceptions.

What I observed about this exciting IX Symposium is that expertise and developments the SAT team has been working on for decades are now coming together where the creative event is shared in multimedia around the world.

If you want to exercise your neurons, take in a few activities going on right now until June 2 2018. This year accessibility is the key! You can purchase your ticket on line for a master-class or other event, you can decide on a whim and just show up to buy your ticket. Check this Facebook link to see what the excitement is all about.
Nora Bateson  giving a talk about reality and complexity in Copenhagen
Eames Demitrios giving a TED talk

Finally, a little editorial comment: it is a fact that we humans edit what we consider to be reality BUT it is also a fact that there is not one discipline (art, science, religion etc) that can prove what Intelligence, Life, Love, or Reality are!
