Above: Death Valley Drawing from December 12, 2008. One of the subjects of this drawing was the idea of myself as a snake shedding it’s skin.

Six Years Of A Seven Year Plan

onehumanbeing.com was established 6 years ago as a way to initiate a new season of art for myself. It is a super-project that launched a number of different sub-projects that have come and, mostly, gone (into my digital portfolio) such as redbotlovesyou.com, The Philip K. Dick Reading Club, The Turning, The MMJ Project, The MMJ Lists, The All-Seeing Eyebama, and UFOverdriver.

Most of this work has been done as Jungian experiments to explore the use of consciousness and the collective conscious as both subject matter and as an art material. The projected length of this project was 7 years when I began in June of 2008.

I’m now in the last year of the project and it’s time for me to try and make sense of all I’ve learned since the project began. My worldview has certainly been altered by the process, and I’m sure I’ll be writing about that soon…

All of this has accumulated (here) on my website as posts, sound collages, stories about dealing with bi-polar disorder, many many graphics and art pieces, and the time has come to archive some of this material, and start thinking in terms of creating a final document to complete the work by next June.

I’d like to express my deepest thanks to everyone who has followed my work, either on my various project sites or on Facebook. I appreciate your comments and “likes” more than you can imagine.

Until later, best of health,
Jon

of clothes, NOW – the poem

About This Word Collage – of clothes, NOW

This collage was created in the mid-1990’s. The original materiel for this collage were done on sailcloth stretched over a silkscreen frame. The collage was measured off into 6″ x 4″ pieces, cut out and mounted in a book created for them.

From there I decipher the poem that goes with these beautiful, little pieces of Dada-eques art – maybe even more Jungian than Dada…

Either way, enjoy exploring this world called of clothes, NOW

The poem created from all the various pieces;
