i am enabling my Thought Technology MyoTrac w/ Clinical STIM Unit for sEMG use & graphix for said neuro-
physiological symptoms - to work with a Medical clinic in Charlotte and give said clinical use - diagnostics - assessment
results to health boards & US Government departments. Based upon results - stemming from recent FONAR MRI's
and other X-Ray radiological Reports - diagnostics combined, shall produce results that shall enable me to 'arrest' [or
stop] said disintegrative properties within my Cervical & Lumbar region of my spine - that which initially was a result of
a front-end collision in 1999 and another rear-end collision in 2001 . . . [more to follow]
- a reference to the above graphix: each square shall be imaged out as an art-piece and then relief-structurally
constructed as a large mural like artpiece - and trigger points and other clinical notes shall be applied across the entire
structure [more to follow] . . . a note: it has been an extremely 'long road' - attempting that which i am doing and
shall be doing medically for myself - which in turn - shall benefit others in the end . . .

' . . . looking more closely at the parallel courses of modern art (Dadaism especially)
and Science fiction in providing a narrative voice and a performance stage for contemporary science.'
Joseph Cornell - Planet Set - Tête Etoilée, Giuditta Pasta (dédicace) - 1950
© The Joseph & Robert Cornell Memorial Foundation/VAGA, New York and DACS, London 2002
"Joseph Cornell's 'Giuditta Pasta' is perhaps one of the most intriguing and enigmatic works of art of the 20th century.
In a famous essay, the Italian art historian Maurizio Calvesi brilliantly unveils in it the manifold citations
of Renaissance paintings and disguised references to traditional iconology.
Both images are linked in this way to the alchemical tradition (the stripping of the bride is a metaphor for the
philosopher stone in the writings of the 17th century alchemist Solidonius). Even without digging into the Grand
Verre as Grand Oeuvre, or alchemical Opus, this work of art has an enormous evocative power, due precisely to its
hints of multiple hidden meanings and difficulty of interpretation. Thus, a very brief apparition is the appropriate
way for a great mystery to manifest itself (just think of the divine apparitions in various religious mythologies).
In certain 'critical narratives' on Marcel Duchamp's Art, William Gibson, a writer, chooses this
particular piece of art, on which Duchamp worked for a good ten years, creating a 'wormhole' connecting
the future to the past and the cyberpunk movement to the tradition of the avant garde: an instant message
delivered to the reader in an almost subliminal, but extremely powerful, form."

a Film by richard w lubrich jr . . . an Update
. . . Re-Scripting of my film: 'It All Came True' which is @ present still in Re-Script / Re-Direct.
. . . the elements that are the underlying foundation of the Story - are multi-faceted and inter-woven
into two separate time-lines - and the time-lines are both woven together even though they both are in
the opposite directions of one another - they run parallel to one another . . .
[the end is the beginning and visa-versa] . . .
the story begins with the actual ending [a violent bloodbath - the death of an Officer] - and directly
afterwards - the Story begins to unfold with inter-woven time-lines [each time-line is reversed - whereas
characters are built upon the time-line as a cross-reference] and that portrait the characters that are
involved with an 'attempt' @ creating a club environment within a boarding house environment - the
characters are related to in reference to the past, present & future along the time-lines as well . . .
time-lines involving the past & of future events are inter-woven with precision and overlap the story
- allowing for the viewer to understand & relate to the personalities that make up the cast . . .

"During the 1920s and 1930s the Mexican artists were never marginalized or ignored in Los Angeles. Instead, they contributed in a meaningful way to the vibrant local culture and shared a commitment to developing an aesthetics suited to the time. Influential as they were, however, they were themselves influenced by the Los Angeles aesthetic and cultural ambience—Ramos Martínez, in particular. He made an extraordinary shift in his conception of space and volume in his paintings in response to the works of the sculptor George Stanley (for example, the monumental Griffith Park Astronomers and the modernist-style Oscar statuette).
The last important Mexican exhibition of the twenties and thirties in Los Angeles was The Indefinite Period (1942), a traveling show organized by McKinley Helms at the Institute of Modern Art in Boston. In it were works by Rufino Tamayo, Antonio Ruiz, Carlos Orozco Romero, Dr. Atl, María Izquierdo, Frida Kahlo, Jesús Guerrero Galván, Federico Cantú, and Guillermo Meza, some of whom (Izquierdo, Meza) were exhibiting for the first time in Southern California.
The next exhibition was not until 1953. The migrants who came from the Midwest and the East Coast during the war years looking for work in the growing aircraft industry created a different climate, in which things Mexican were viewed with suspicion. Incidents such as the Zoot-suit riots and the Sleepy Lagoon murder case helped to eradicate the goodwill established during two decades of cross-cultural influences. The focus of American art, and thus American art history, shifted eastward. As it did, the Mexican artists and their work faded from memory, and an important part of Southern California's cultural history was almost forgotten."

Recent Artworks shown @ Atherton Mills Exhibition by Gene Smith . . .
Title: Does the Nightingale Sing at Midnight or Is He Quiet?
< Medium: Polychrome with Mixed Media
[Special Processes] Polychrome (paint) was used on the lettering and 'Nightingale', along with the
application of intense heat that invites texture and crackling to accent the subtle background.
The use of wax is introduced in random areas to give a burnished appearance.
These various surface techniques reflect a variety of possibilities within the Mind of the Viewer.
Artist Statement regarding his artworks:
My assemblages, constructions and mixed media [combines] involve rational
and irrational process, intuition, and interplay of connections conscientiously
and sub - conscientiously planned. The pictorial elements of romanticism, mystery
and rebus are intended to ignite a flame of curiosity within the viewer. It is
my intent to astonish or disturb the imagination of the audience and place them
on a magical voyage that sails into the dream world of the enigmatical. By using
the most common materials, discards, and sometimes unrecognizable objects, I
hopefully will stir the imagination and as in the words of Dubuffet: 'will re-
habilitate the spectator's language of vision and perhaps, just for a moment,
there will be a MAGICAL MYSTICAL MOMENT.
"Fortunately, somewhere between chance and mystery lies imagination, the only
thing that protects our freedom, despite the fact that people keep trying to
reduce it or kill it off all together."

> Recently, July 30 'till August 30, 2008 - Lawrence Street Gallery presented an Exhibition of Smith + Zdeb in Michigan
'Objects d'Art: Illuminated Pleasures' a Two Person Exhibition by Gene Smith and Larry Zdeb
Larry Zdeb and Gene Smith say that "Objects d'art”, is an exploration into the past. Influenced by Kurt Schwitters, Joseph Cornell and Robert Rauschenberg <------ click me
the artists use vintage found objects as a major component in their constructions along with elements of Dada, randomness and chance. Layer after layer,
the surfaces of these constructions reveal a variety of stimulating possibilities to the viewer.
Included in this show is a collection of box constructions, many of which feature battery-powered lighting. With the windows of the gallery blacked out and
interior lights off, gallery visitors can turn on each box beginning with the smallest. In the dark, the normal parameters of the boxes are lost, provoking
imaginative associations. The beauty of these assemblages is in pushing the envelope beyond the boundary of the conventional.
. . . the following Photographs were taken in Gene's Studio back in July of 2006.
