Facebook Chat interview with Dianne Bowen. These interviews are kept to ten minutes to see see what can be gleamed out of a really short dialogue.
wow. it works.
ok. let’s do this.
ten minutes. Q&A about your work, etc.
don’t worry about typos.
So do you have a web site where we can see your work?
right. i looked a couple of weeks ago.
interesting work. what are some of the overlapping themes in your work you are currently working with?
pulling a conversation from nothing, empty spaces… finding a language
the work seems to be abstract but reminds me of the forming of a universe or cell, almost biological.
I think the early work had “a brutal fragilitly.”
so is that realated to chaos theory maybe? everything is nothing, nothing is everything, nearly zen
what type of language are you trying to find?
yeah, it’s one of the thoughts
I actually go through a process of translations
translations from what to what?
sounds become marks and textures in the material
so you listen to music while working for the sounds?
always trying to dig into something
I listen to the emptiness
so you are nearly meditating when working?
in a way,
I starting thinking about this when I was researching extinct and ancient languages
you said you are in the medical field. that’s why I thought of biological forms. do you think your background has anything to do with the forms you are making?
not in the medical field
my mom is a nurse
i mean how could it not is a b etter question. ok. sorry. oh. that’s what I get for jumping to conclusions.
ok. we can go past ten minutes if you want, but we have three minutes.
what are you showing in Miami?
How did you get involved with Open Ground?
ok well I guess I’lll sum it up it. the work in miiami is from a new series
Are you working on installations currently? Do you have a studio space and where is it?
this finding and conversing with nothing
the installations started about 2 years ago
ok. when you mean nothing do you mean nothing?
yes, working on a large piece right now
or do you mean everything?
empty is full
I feel zen now. thank you. 🙂
back at ya
I’m looking forward to see your work soon.
one more question? sorry. I always do this.
anything you’d like to share, words of wisdom, parting knowledge.
I’ll had some interesting things occur this year. All point to the same thing most artists already know.. Just do your work
I think this is exceptional relevent now
roger. ain’t that the truth. especially with so much going on around us, focus is essential. appreciate it. see you in sunny Miami. And hopefully we’ll do a follow up interview while down there. cheers.
oh yeah some great work
