Below, A Series Of Possibilities For Installation Art Devoid Of Depiction Of Any Kind(Images Are There As Entities Unto Themselves)....They Are Ideas And Ideas Alone.........Of Course I'm Not Saying Stop Exhibiting Installations(Or Anything Else For That Matter).....Importantly, Though, Is The Fact That Idea Remains Long After The Installation Is Disassembled(Or Lost To The Basement Of Some Museum Somewhere)

History Of Civilization, Part I
In The Center Of A Room A Single Computer Monitor With Nothing But Static On It.............Surrounding It, Shards And Pieces Of Civilization, Disintegrating Art, Dried Dead Plants, Animal Bones, Tar...........Ambient--Single Note, In A Loop, Of A Whale.....................In A Corner Sits A Single Shabby Figure...........Smoking A Cigarette, Crying

Symphony Of Color
Diffuse Color Orchestrated From A Large Screen Much As A Symphony Is Conducted(Varying Instruments In Orchestra Playing At The Perfect Time Determined By Distances Apart)......Color Would Appear To Be Moving Toward The Viewer Due To Minute Time Interval......A Chamber Ensemble Would Be Nice Accompaniment........Arvo Part Anyone?

Recent Study - 2012-7

A "Normal" Installation Of Art, Painting Preferable--Sculpture WIll Work Nicely In Gallery Center..............Could Be Anyone's Work, Including My Own...............All Covered, Yes, With Copious Amounts Of Poison Ivy..........Obvious Implications Here--Enough Said..............(Poison Ivy Is Enjoying A Tremendous Proliferation In Areas It Is Indigenous To Because Of Its' Fondness For Carbon Dioxide).........If You Feel "Itching", Leave Immediately

Recent Study - 2011-9

Video Installation
In One Room, A Series Of Monitors Containing "Talking Heads" Creating A Cacophony Of Sound(Noise?), An Almost Unbearable Experience............Politicians(Particularly U.S.) Talking And Talking And Talking About Global Warming, Environment, Species Extinction, Etc.(Even Gore Not Immune Here--A Split Screen For Him--One Side, The Positive While On The Other, The Negative--Shots Of Residence, Vehicles, Etc. With Facts And Figures Concerning Energy Usage Clearly Superimposed), Researchers, Corporate Executives, Etc..............May Even Throw In A Few Shots Of Refineries, Power Plants, Wyoming Coal Mines, Etc...........In Another Room, An Equal Number Of Monitors Containing Shots Of Wildlife(From Frogs, Birds To Mammals) And Scenery With Accompanying Sound At Same Volume Level As Adjacent Room--It Will Be As Noise To Music

Technology Rules
An Installation
A Large Pile Of Bleached Coral, All Brightly Painted To Resemble Original Living Color..........Name Tags May Well Be Applied, With Brief Description Of Life Histories And Notations On Extinct Ones..............Also Could List The Many Uses Of Dead Coral........Technology Wins The Day Again!

Nature's Call
A Darkened Room...........(Or Screen)..........In Center A Vat Of Water(Or Cube Of Mirrors) Gently Undulating..........Overhead Spots For Mirrored Reflection, As A Moving Evening Sky Upon The Dark Water's Surface..........Quiet Initially, Very Quiet..........Then, Voices Of The Night Immediately Prior To A Hurricane(Frogs-Birds-Insects Mostly............But As Seldom Heard)...........Then, Complete And Utter Silence..........Before The Start.............Off In The Distance, The Roar Increasing Until Intensity Becomes Unbearable..............And It Remains So For Whatever Duration Deemed Necessary...............As The Roar Recedes, The Lights Slowly Go Out On The Water, Leaving Utter Darkness...........And...........Silence
 
--For This Just Have To Wait For The Next Hurricane And Acquire Excellent Sound Equipment

Plan To, When Resources Permit, Create A New Web Site, Intensely Active And Moving, Concerning Itself With Installation, Video, Moving Paint Forms And Many Other Applications................No Doubt The Internet Is The Best Approach In The "Long Run" For Such Activity..........Time Becomes A Very Efficient Mechanism, Cost Greatly Reduced, And, Most Importantly, Hundreds To Thousands Of People A Day Will View The Imagery And installation(As Opposed To The Relatively Few That Will See It In Gallery Or Museum)......Of Course My Environmental Diatribes Will Be Included On The Site, Perhaps The Most Important Function Of The Site......Better Museums And A Very Few Gallery Owners Will Be Embracing Such Concepts(Has Already Started) In The Days Ahead And For Very Good Reason--Efficiency And Dissemination Of Knowledge On A Vast Scale
