BIO
Three interweaving themes emerge from Paul St George's projects. One is a study of the history of visual culture (Classical Roman and late Victorian). Both eras are well known for their rich successes, but also hide a number of overlooked or incomplete projects. Paul St George has uncovered and is completing a number of these, including the Telectroscope http://www.telectroscope.net and Travelling curves http://www.travellingcurves.com/curves/.
Another persistent theme is the use of photography and chronophotography to picture time. This is developed in the Chronocyclography, Trackorama, Supermoment and Chronopan projects, but also in curating the Sequences exhibition and in editing the imagetime series of books http://www.wallflowerpress.co.uk/category/imagetime.
The third theme is the exploration of ambiguity. This has produced the highly collectable Minumental sculptures, Carpet Castle and the ultimate, two for the price of one, Rabbitduck.
These projects are available at http://www.paulstgeorge.com/

DISCUSSION

Re: Does the artbase have an historicization function?


I want to support the idea that a number of artists can respond to an
absence in the same way. In 2001, Carlo Zanni and Tom Scarpino
responded to an absence by using the icon for an absent digital
image. If you visit http://www.paulstgeorge.com/shopping/ you will
see that I used the same tactic in 1999.

Can I take this opportunity to submit my art work to the ArtBase?

Emergent Art


Under the right conditions, complex patterns and sequences emerge
from the interaction of simple events.

Please see my new work called Emergent Art at
http://www.paulstgeorge.com/emergence/

On the left you will see patterns emerge from the interaction of
cells as they obey the rules of Conway's Game of Life.

On the right you will see a different representation of the same
emerging patterns. The square cells are replaced by vertical lines
and the position and colour of the lines are determined according to
the sequences of coloured cells.

I welcome comments, criticism and also any information about other
forms of emergent art.

Thank you.
