I took up sitting zen in 2009 wiyh my friend’s suicide on 9/11/2009 vowing to fight madness with art even to the point of madness… dissociative disengagement and hyperempathy are difficult and I find only the early martyrs of the Western Christian church, who were all women, to be my real heroes. There’s a purity in the zen painting I want to explore. Placing the ultra modern invention of the voice assistant AI on top to read poetry to shock the viewer to the idea they will be replaced by a new lifeform. One of silicon and carbon. Humanity is not obsolete, we are doomed. The joy of creation of art places life back into place when all your marbles are gone… @myspectral @katie_sampayo @ashley_tully @thelaughterpatch #bartonspringz2049 @imagineartatx

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
