Visual Art: Calculus of Dark Thought
The Calculus of Dark Thought is a conceptual visual artwork exploring the peculiarities of negative thinking. It is an abstract conceptual work using geometric shapes, and lines made using chalk pastel pencil on black paper.
The composition of the image is a series of geometric shapes, circles and cylinders. The colour palette is dominated by grey and orange.
The image suggests some kind of rudimentary visual model designed for esoteric experimentation. An abstract model of something, spatial or mathematical, but of odd derivation.
What is it for?
The image is a meditative device. Can it be used to derive an understanding of the Calculus of Dark Thought with the individual mind? The model is devoid of any instructions for its use. It is a puzzle that must be solved before the nature of dark thought can be investigated, let alone revealed.
- From the project A Topology of Nothingness, a series of visual art pictures created using art therapy and meditations on mental health and wellbeing, using several methods of free expression including drawing, painting, and conceptual photography. The body of work is a reflection on mental health, depression and the trap of negative thinking and hopelessness.
