Manifesto

 QUANTUM POP MEDIA ARTIST   
Art is Media. Media is Art.
 I sample from everything.
I am an Art Scientist.

My art is called ELECTRONISM, which means that I use all available electronic technology in combination with traditional art methods to create new work for today's hyper media world.

The National Endowment for the Arts defines a Media Artist as "utilizing a fundamental understanding of the mediums of analog and digital media to integrate digital technologies with traditional forms of artistic expression". Physics defines Quantum as the smallest measurable discrete amount of any physical property. Pop Art uses the modalities of Popular Culture and Mass Media. I am a Quantum Pop Media Artist who uses the modalities and technologies of Popular Culture and Mass  Media in association with all other traditional art forms as Art Quanta.


***My new and revised terms and conditions***

Right after the congressional hearings on Facebook where Zuckerberg showed himself to be an Orwellian doublespeak agent, they changed the algorithm at Instagram. Immediately my android tablet crashed and I had to do a complete reset losing all my apps, photos, videos, music, etc. Additionally my posts on instagram went from getting 100+ likes to 7. That's right, SEVEN! At this point Facebook and Instagram have become mind control gulags. There is no rationale for my art being censored, throttled, downgraded, hidden or ghettoized. I reject them. The arbitrary whims of technocrats who posit themselves as cultural wranglers is not in conjunction with my world view insofar as my content and artistic production are not theirs to abuse as they please. THEY SHOULD BE PAYING FOR THE PRIVILEGE TO USE MY CONTENT. Unless and until there is a fair compensation system put in place for content producers and/ or a VERIFIABLE level playing field, my content will no longer be theirs to pilfer and profit from. From now on my content will be displayed the way I intend on a website that I control. 


Thank you.
