Hybrid performance – Pillage art historical styles #keywords

The cliché ‘we can learn from history’ is in many cases nonsense – we continue to make the same mistakes over and over again. We do however have to ride that fast learning curve to create a new product and to have new ideas.

Business is not a static immovable object it has to evolve. We have to morph into different markets, pushing our ideas onto the next phase – this is what artists do. The work of artists (painters) is to reference film and digital imaging, sampling, graphic design, fashion, urban architecture, comics and photography etc. Pillage art historical styles, including Pop art, Post-Painterly Abstraction, Abstract Expressionism and Surrealism, alongside referencing other cultures. This hybridity allows an exploration of different cultural and technological concerns, allowing boundaries to be broken and new frontiers challenged.

 Judgement : What is going against you »
If you allow fear to stop you from taking a chance or a new possibility then you will lose out. Do not ignore the new opportunities being presented to you – a decision, new job or relationship could change your life for the better. Do not refuse change when change at this time is vital – feel the fear and do it anyway. Outcomes may well be delayed, however this is a time for positive action and not passiveness.


We have now become at home with the Internet and its optimized retail opportunities. The steps the artists of the 1880’s were looking for was a break from observed representation. Symbolism and its search for new boundaries of creativity within literature and poetry began to point the way for these young men, their almost post modernist approach to their art looked to steal ideas from every form of intellectual discipline. These painters, over a hundred years ago, were a clique and were accused by their contemporaries of being too intellectual to be serious painters. Search Engine Optimization is also a mysterious clique with its differing ethics, a structured discipline but it is time to re-invent Search Engine Optimization to get our businesses (our art) moving forward.

The Star : Outcome »
This is a time of good luck and fortune, perhaps after a period of struggle and heartache. Good health, possibly after a time of illness, and good fortune that will give you a new zest of life. If considering a new love affair, new job or career, or travel, then go for it. You may also receive a gift or gifts!


Web designers and SEO gurus are doing the same now; they are copying code, search words, keywords and optimization tricks from each other. #painters #artists

 How you feel about yourself now »
You are feeling that things will go your way, you believe in fairness and justice in all things. If you are considering partnership issues, personal or professional, dealings will go well. Perhaps you are about to sign a contract or legal document, this will be beneficial to you. If someone has done wrong to you it will be put right and you will feel justice has been done.



This is a hybrid performance which is an eclectic mix of the avant-garde ramblings of the early experimentation pieces of ‘Extraction’ and the ‘dark song’ musings of the tortured artist. Sadly this appears to be the last known live recording of This Window.

Double bass (Jake Bright) and guitar / vocals (Peter Bright) played with screwdrivers. Recorded and transmitted live on Soundart Radio (FM) Dartington College, Nr Totnes on 8th August 2008.

The double bass was miked up and played through a Marshal Stack – very loud in a very small studio!

Crystal Set - who needs the internet? by This Window

www.ukoptimisation.com is a site that has been specializing in creating navigation solutions for websites for several years, their expertise has helped several floundering web based companies. They have now decided to convert to WordPress and create a general blog commenting on various subjects from SEO to Real Estate. Their client base is continuing to grow organically so the need for a ‘point of sale’ website is no longer necessary and has been archived.

It is important to make sure your site is easy to navigate and intuitive for your visitors.

How the visitor to your business website navigates around your pages influences their decision on whether to visit a competitor or purchasing your goods or services from your website. If the site is too difficult to navigate the potential customer might never return again. You need to make your navigation links (text or images) as obvious as possible and it is imperative that there is a degree of continuity of color and form so that the user can easily get what they want intuitively. These simple steps will help you to achieve your goals.

Our team can provide a full range of services that will help you to chase sales.

Surrealist poetry or “key search words”

Sometimes our language has a fixed distinctive expression whose meaning cannot be deduced from the combined meanings of its actual words – this jargon based spaghetti can in itself be termed as an art form or the keywords in website optimisation.

T H E L A N G U A G E OF M E . The sharing of personal information, feelings, personal details (could be fact or fiction – the majority of online persona are fake) is a strange concept. Do we like to talk about ourselves – do we think we are special? Is our online persona more interesting? Are our ‘friends’ as insecure and as dull as us? What does your boss think?

The fact that most of us have an on-line persona suggests that computer communication enables us to visit places and have discussions with people we would normally avoid. We are engaging in the pseudo-anonymous system/society. Underground activities have long since migrated out of analog media (the printed word, film etc.) into ‘this world’. This world has evolved into a global system with multiple layers in which new authorities compete to control its uses; platform wars, chip races, and operating system alliances etc. The pseudo-identity of the user is being exposed; law is punishing non-conformity, censorship and the rules of globalization have invaded the system. The Klondike Spirit has taken over the open system and turned it into the homogenized high street we all know. The art of language and communication has been shackled.

This emphasis on words as a search engine tool has in many respect created a censorship, we can only use language in a manner that Google prescribes to gain a placement in their searches. The very nature of language has been changed an altered to accommodate this new set of rules. Closing the door on non-conformity.

Words taken out of context lose their meaning. Publishing documents that contain controversial language puts the author at risk. Any constructed environment can promote alienation, but it can also enhance communication to form a quasi-organic platform for human interaction, unless of course Google disapproves of the dialogue.

The art of language and communication has been shackled by Google.

Creating good solid business keywords is not a decorative process it is a complicated exercise. Juxtaposing words together is a bit like creating a collage, the mind always tries to create a narrative when confronted with the written word. The main problem is creating a text that not only makes sense but is also effective in attracting good search engine placement. All this weight and burden the written word carries somehow devalues the purity and the the soul of written conversation, making us slaves to the likes of Google.

(A non-homogeneous system, whose terms and relationships are not constant, allows language to break up, to stumble over the rules of its grammar, by necessity it has to respond radically to other linguistic components, creating a new linguistic order and syntax. )
