Eric Dymond
Since the beginning
Works in Toronto Canada

Eric Dymond is an artist who works with many tools and programming languages.
He graduated from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design with a BFA in studio.<br />
He exhibited paintings in Toronto, Detroit, New York, Montreal and London during the 1970's, 1980's and 1990's. The paintings were created with sandblasted sprays employing formal themes from the history of painting (still life's , individual portraits, traditional landscapes) . These series appear minimal with repeating content and are a form of Serialism.
In the early 1990's he began working with digital media, building perl programs with TCL/TK, web sites (see the doorway on Leonardo) and stand-alone applications.
He continues working in all media, rejecting specialization.

Re: Re: I found this!

when we found this we knew our lives had changed.
>>I've been waiting all my life to find this.
and with this change we find despair and mortification.
thank you,
again and again.

Who has room for deapair?
Who has room for the mortified souls of the disenfranchised?
Not me.
Forget the poor sods!
Gaze at the machine and continue as you always continue.
what choice do you have now?

none, forever none.

get lost
go away.
not here...


Re: Re: I found this!

I've been waiting all my life to find this.




dark night

do you know what i mean when i say there is the dark night of the soul?
when no matter what happens in life, the burden of continuing is too much.
when falling on your knees, completely collapsing, is the only thing to do.
the bone crushing weight of existence is overwhelming.
in Mother Night, Kurt Vonnegut's character is walking and suddenly halts.
he halts because there is no reason to take a step forward or a step

there is just no reason to continue.

if you ever face that night and survive, it doesn't make you better or
stronger. it just lurks in the background waiting to appear again.

always there, relentless and everpresent.

i feel it coming back again, only now it's blacker and more complete in
it's surety.
souls break, and spirits flee it's presence.
be wary of that the secret evening.
it doesn't come to bless, it comes to stare.
