{M}anifesto :: Dogmas of [M]


rules that define  {M}

1. A work in {M} must provide a direct experience of some actions of one’s mind to the viewer, (rather than an expression of emotion or an idea).

2. {M} is a way of making art defined more or less by these enigmas, dogmas and pragmas.

3. The “art” of {M} is considered in the broadest sense of what art is and is not restricted to any particular media.

4. Works in {M} provoke viewers to ask questions about their own minds and look for answers in their own direct experience.

5.  Works in {M} must increase viewers’ awareness of one or more of the following:

    -sensory perception
    -the periphery between consciousness and the unconscious
    -internal imagery
    -internal monologue
    -image of the body (construction of the body)
    -and other aspects of the mind’s construction of the external world that are implied by the enigmas of {M}.

  1. Even if a work is intended  to be part of {M}, it cannot be included in {M} if it does not conform to these dogmas.
  2. The only works currently in {M} are a some of what I have made. There are works by other artists which I have identified as {M}-like, but they are not part of {M}.
