This little piece was created as reference for a larger painting.
Inspired by philosophical & scientific theories of time and space, this piece seeks to render and merge both dynamical systems theory & relativity with zen philosophy in a somewhat nocturne style, echoing the Tonalism movement of the 19th -20th century ...
Featured is a classic Ford Model T, one of many reoccurring subjects used in my exploration of time and man as a robotized tool in the beginning of the industrialized era (and now).
Henry Ford who was very much one of the pioneers of mass production and the assembly line in the making of his first car the Model T, revolutionized the manufacturing system of the time. Technology was incorporated as a tool to improve the social mobility of his labor force (besides lowering production costs etc..) and his 'Fordism' aspirations took in to account (basically) the well-being of society as a whole..
Now the exploration of what this means to us now in this age of advanced technology where mechanization is ever more taking over the role of humans (like it or not) and where that leaves us as a society is one that many are still grappling with.. It will be nothing short of culture shifting and hopefully we will make the transition smoothly if we take a page from Henry Ford, with a more global, sustainable outlook..
Pythagoras, when he was asked what time was, answered that it was the soul of this world.
