{M}anifesto: dogmas of {M}

DOGMAS

rules that define  {M}

1. A work in {M} must potentially provide a direct experience of the 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
    -attention
    -feelings
    -the periphery between consciousness and the unconscious
    -internal imagery
    -space
    -time
    -causality
    -narrative
    -language
    -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 formally in {M} are a subset of my output. This does not exclude the possibility of including others’ works, which must be with the artist’s consent.
