Three Art Poems


These art poems emerge from my meditative practice—
an attempt to think through the often fraught relationship between nature and technology.

The Extended Cataclysm

Before I sit down to make them, I go on a long walk and observe my surroundings
(birds, trees, houses, telephone poles, trash).

Total Return

When I return home, I try to transform the images that spring to mind.

Value Combinations

The text is taken, in part, from My Inventions: The Autobiography of Nikola Tesla.

Welcome to The Art of Everyone

In writing my book Everything Else, I realised everybody has their own “everything else”—the thoughts and stories, the experiences, the skills, the imagination, the dreams.

Left unexplored or unshared, they can leave a void, depriving our spirit of something beautiful and nourishing. Having learned that, I created the space here to manifest my own "everything else," and to help others share theirs.

The path here is lined with flowers, the walls are endless, the shelves inviting, the table is set, and there is room for adventure. Bring your own creations or just open your soul for a retreat. This is a space to breathe. Leave the conventional world behind and enjoy.

Thank you for being here.
