James Gurney and other similar artists seems to prefer small canvas in order to concentrate on the elemental color and atmosphere in a scenery. The trick is to reduce what you have at your disposal and learn to focus on achieving the one task an artist can be proud of: to submit the impression they got when they saw for the first time a certain light.
Radionics can be overwhelming if you have an entire electronics laboratory at your disposal. Especially a beginner just don’t know where to begin. And what do you do with digital radionics, if you have the necessary skills to program several languages and develop programs for embedded computers? It is too much … and it does not benefit your creativity.
Back in the 1980s a subculture developed small applications for the Amiga 500, called the Demo-Scene. They tried to put as much as possible in just one 3,5″ floppy disk, about 720 kilobyte of space only. This scene today try to minimize everything in just 64 kilobyte. I admired these hackers for their passion and skills. It seems that they knew that by reducing everything, the creativity is forced to invent new ways.
In just 48 kilobyte a html website contains a radionics analysis program with a virtual stick pad and a broadcast function. What do you need more? Feel free to share the site, download if you want, and use it for experimental purpose. The rates are signatures from the Boericke materia medica.
