My background was in the visual arts / psychoanalysis ( although my qualification doesn’t suggest that). I may have previously failed to mention that to my knowledge, there has not been any official clarification on when the difference occurs that namely individual entities display. That often seems to be mimicked by others and then reflected in terms like ‘best practice’ appropriated to influence different cultures. Although the word ‘people’ can suggest many, they “people” can also be a select few that may or not be in a group. Which once wanted to be in the UK even when they were from elsewhere for a multitude of reasons.
There is a discourse to reflect all the things we see, hear & speak. A scent for taste and a sense for touch. My academic position suggests ‘love’ , does not exist ,more about Desire or lack.
Who am I to say otherwise even if I may know otherwise.
Did I make up the word love or luv? Was I mistaken? probably. Can I still use it? Most definitely
So maybe like other non physical yet all consuming concepts allude, we wait in hope…..
Custom prints-images was meant to promote that what is visual in nature. That is its main objective, with the occasional text as is necessary. The images/ materials / products and sizes is all that will generally change.
Words, Images, Photographs or Products.
Love this… was a painstakingly difficult concept creation that was initially called Charm Wear, a bid to come up with something that was not already taken. In which I place a custom image of lips with the words ‘ I Love You’ in different languages on a classic 25mm button badge.
The badges were the inspiration for creating this site. The custom lips the inspiration for badges….. Joss Love this…
Love this… the ( I ) in experience, with Love is Blind ( registered custom red lips with I love you in Braille) below experience to make it real.
These green custom lips are an element of a registered design mark that portrays a smiley face that was printed on Old Street brushed twill, without the face see below,
The importance of the face is that it was registered as a Design mark. Also, it could well be the fact that it does not define everything or everyone. It is one of many potential combinations, which had been acknowledged by the UK Intellectual Property Office.
If you could even contemplate the combinations it is unlikely that there would be enough. The fact that this mark is result of an academic study nearly 20 years ago in which what was presented was not acceptable. As you could expect those that could want to express something that is not obviously visible as national symbols. Although it is registered if used will be indiscretion as its outward impression still has many variants. It does, however, offer to show how two distinct emblems can have a possible non-offensive outlook through it.
DUE TO BREXIT AND COMPLICATIONS WHEN FIRST PROMOTING MY DESIGNS in 2016/17, MY FOCUS CHANGED…………..Now BREXIT IS HERE AND 2019 check Banksy largest known canvas.
Love lost out. Never ever to return?
This print (no substrate) was not foreseen but occurred after the decision to leave EU-Jan 2020. (design was never created for resale but was on the original fabric roll).
MOST OF WHAT IS WRITTEN WAS BEFORE BREXIT HOW THAT RELATES NOW IS ALSO IN TRANSITION
Hexatrigon. was not something that can be said was anticipated when I created this domain, it is however something that was the result of a conversation about a custom card, inspired by graphene.
Transformations, from one position, perspective, dimension to another. In addition to the new outlook, it provided.
I did not know of undercuts before the technical drawing sent to me, situated on the front page. The result of an inquiry into traditional mass manufacturing injection moulding/CNC machining.
Two types of printed matter. One was registered before the above shape ever existed in the mind /body or anywhere else.
Shape of tool (with guides) originally created to produce, non printed or casted versions of Hexatrigon.
Not to mention the all the complications therein
I have bore my self to this and other sites from the start. Now when it is here I am in a state of please can I have some more. Not uncertainty I have had my full. All these pursuits have taken all, not that I started with much anyway. But tried to make the most of nevertheless only now might what I had been saying sink only now….. who knows
I would add, much of what I thought held true seems to have played itself in these few years too. These are my offerings since ‘civilisation and it’s discontents.’ Tell me if have seen anything here before! The lips had a history before but I did them from scratch even a friend thought they were not original
The first spheres were not for a joke or gimmick and neither were the second. I may be isolated from the group in question. But picture this, Or not.
we live in 3D space and so much of that is informed by something less so.
often what is not said speaks volumes.
arranged spheres to make an imagined part viable . It started with an iOS screenshot, for viewing purposes only. Jan 31 / Feb 2020
It seems as though me using Trojanthinking as my tag for decades has now due to whatever is becoming problematic. If you notice time stamps on posts you will see 2018 is when the metal form came about. I have used the name from the early nineties.
I have only been able to do this shot twice with same material. Once displayed on this site but is now lost within blog posts. It was in wax before the wicks. Some of them are missing too but that was because they were used:-)
They did not have a hoop either. The slightly rough look if the top one is, primer, glue, paint, hot gun and more! You may notice the little circle step is missing too, It never had one! This below shot was only the second time and it has far less this time. but it was triangular
just noticed a mistake I top pic it was cardboard, 3D print, casts and wax that was me trying to show the two tessellated views of Hexatrigon with regular shapes. It also shows my ignorance nothing old school about cardboard. However that was because I wanted to highlight something even back then! The last time I cut cardboard like that was school. I am making excuses……
Although it might be the only model I will not see I will show how the journey and the speculation of previous post has manifested. I will show this in pictures. Both created for their respective process methods. One sls, shown previously on this site. And one for ultimately casting. Both of them if manufactured are as real as the other from my perspective. Only difference is alterations best suited for manufacture, maybe a title or name of the file. Both are with the respective manufacturers. I wonder if that is how it was supposed to be in the long run. I definitely didn’t plan it. I hope to manufacture it in time. And it ended with no bad will.
My efforts bore no fruit. From one perspective. My shape is not the only thing hanging on a ……:
I suppose this is an other one.
If the place I mailed for a quote today was around or I knew of them a couple years ago maybe things would have been different!!
Enablemanufacturing ( that is a company)
On this site I have danced a little less of a political dance but the news of the royals leaving the Uk are in some what mirrored with where I may want to set one of my design marks I did at first hope for more from it. Didn’t expect that ignorance to reach so far in the 21st Century. In family I suppose whatever happens they still relate.
in more keeping with where the journey led I found out about a celebrated day in the US that I found out about. For the last time a full signal and compromised data.
This post had a different ending but could not be saved???
It concerned metal advances in Colorado which was how I found out about the day .
I recently pressed custom red lips on a printed model which came out well. I placed it on a press which I did right at the beginning of my material journey. It was on carbon fibre it was bought online. It was was a heart in fact it had several. which due to the background came of in regards the image left on paper but was very difficult to see. If I remember correctly it may have been one of the last times I went to see the printers. Which now has become a coffee shop. The material was encased in resin which made it possible. You might be able to pick it out of the background. Other images may be found of the original on trojanthinking.wordpress.com
just to think of how this image came into being crosses not only years of experience, theory, practice, language, meaning. materials and borders.
It was less than a day old. (Image that is)
This time it was used after the image press rather than before ( experience from working with the ceramic tiles)
These are not really art, and the tile is lost but it is making the most out of things gone wrong. Which you could call art if you want. I quite like the first heart and the last face it has what screen printing could not offer me without much trouble which is the variation of red in the heart that resembled the photograph from which it was based. I will at some stage prepare a proper 3d print to take the One Luv heart and hope for better. As can be seen on other pages the face came off well in the end, so should the rest if they can fit. Similar position to the badge in that respect, funny Just to add the substrate for the tile was also the coating a lesson gained through experience. The images on 3d prints have no substrate!. Just the process of sublimation via heat.
