2^9 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 512 dots, arranged in cubes. 2x2 dots arranged in cubes, arranged in 2x2 meta-cubes, arranged in 2x2 meta-cubes.
With this, Geometry Daily goes on a hiatus. Yes, I will pause posting. Instead of doing even more graphics, I would like to go deeper. 512 graphics is a lot of material and some ideas demand more attention and want to go elsewhere, on paper, shirts and how-knows. The about page, the shops, my website, they are in dire need for some cleaning up. With the normal schedule, this will never happen.
So far, I will not make any commitment of when I will start posting again, but I’m pretty sure I will. The current idea is to produce more Geometry Dailies behind the scenes and then publish them again in a daily fashion in “seasons”, like in tv series. Let’s see what the future brings!
Any news related to Geometry Daily will of course be posted on this tumblr and the facebook page. For everything else please follow @Tilman on Twitter and have a look at my old creaky blog tilman.me.
You are a great audience, thank you all very much for following.!
Love & Geometry! Tilman.
“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her. She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly. “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.”
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”
this is why performance art is important
So every single person who told me ‘ignore them they’ll go away’ and ‘you can’t let them know they bothered you’ and ‘They’ll stop if they don’t see you react’ and all that bull shit, my entire school career, I want you to look good and hard at this.
I want you to think about what you said.
What you keep saying.
What you are telling your children.
You are making them powerless.
that last comment. actually crying.
i will always reblog this.
