Barber Paradox

Barber Paradox: Using monies earned from shaving the townsmen, the barber takes the train out of town to a better barber.

Look right to the Twitter feed, to see the same words presented in a different way

One page



One page
Two fragments glued onto the pages of a sketch book. An ampersand from What is Life? by Erwin Schrodinger that the wind blew off the book's spine while reading alfresco. Also, a scrap of paper I found in my shoe one day. It says 'please dispose of this carefully'.
The sketch book is a place for the collection of fragments. Like incomplete ideas. Do you like incomplete ideas?

Typing out a page from my notebook (l-r, top-bottom)



simultaneous constructive and degenerative I make and unmake proliferation reproduction with modification proliferation with variation with variation repetition and local interference excess difference local interference Darwinian terms and layers reproduction with entropy modification  comparison of the application of entropy is a practical example of structures of knowledge a wilful embrace of what can go wrong with being an autodidact being dumb being aloof (accidental) through the proliferation of information quantum mechanics = dilution all drawings are submerged done in biro (stolen anti-entropy borrowed or found) overgrown well edit then example but that requires an active recap which generates as much as it refines

Outdoor reading—the wind blew this ampersand of the spine of a rather fragile copy of
What is Life? In which, Erwin Schrodinger writes on how life is extended by a combination of opposing forces:entropy and negative entropy .
 
I now keep the fragment in my glasses case.

Strategy for set backs


Using a self imposed system to create drawings that don't quite work as drawings. The process is designed to abstract the subject matter to a point of vague recognition; an obstructed familiarity.

Ironically, Blogger is not letting me upload an picture of one of these drawings, so here is the formula instead:

I = P ( O ( Lh7 ) + S

I = Image
P = Print
O = Original
Lh = Left hand
S = Scan

Oh wait, here you go...

Anon


This week on BBC Radio 4 was a programme about anonymity and writing in its various forms: Belle de Jour's History of Anon, presented by Brooke Magnanti. It was very good.

In declaring ones self anonymous it states "this writing is honest and may be a bit salacious but I can do that because you don't know who I am" ... I can't help thinking that the writing must also be very well executed so as not to undermine the content.

My name is Helen Frank. There you go!
