A Shady Promise

Author: Wangechi Mutu
Publisher: Damiani Editore
ISBN: 8862080212
Release Date: 2008
Genre: Art

Wangechi Mutu is fond of using the body as vocabulary for expressing human experience, personal narratives and as a way of exploring ideas of cultural identity. Mutu turns "the figure" into a malleable field on which realities are collapsed, disputes are fought, psychology is physically apparent, disappeared tribes are found and a love of sensual surfaces is rekindled. For Wangechi, collage is the ultimate form through which to emphasize the visceral capacities of imagery, using and misusing found pictures, Mutu so enjoys the act of discovering, touching, dissecting and reconfiguring narratives. Her works underhandedly pick at myths about physical appearance emphasizing the love of material, trends towards excessive wastefulness, revealing that rage born from the desire to unevenly scramble and distribute natural resources.

Creativity is the mystical process by which we discover scientific laws, invent machines and produce art. The objective is to be thoroughly scientific in our mysticism and thoroughly mystical in our science.Creative Transformation leaps beyond the current worldwide debate linking quantum physics and ancient mystic concepts. It makes bold proposals for reintegrating science and spirit. Garcia's synthesis for a new cosmology is of sweeping proportions and integrates information from our most distant evolutionary past with the latest scientific breakthroughs. Influenced by Spinoza, Teilhard de Chardin and David Bohm, his theory of creative transformation includes a practical application of creative problem-solving strategies beyond science into human relations, politics and ethics. It's a user-friendly guide for scientists, teachers, parents, artists, New Age activists and all who value creativity to maximize their own abilities and find solutions to our most pressing social, ecological, and economic problems.
