“Art is not necessarily science, but science is always art…”
Issue 10 of the art and culture magazine Shoppinghour, originally published in 2013, is now available as a free download. The magazine features “Cockneys vs Zombies – Rorschach Ink Blots & the Auditory Undead” – an article which provided an invaluable opportunity to take ideas from this website, some of which emerged after the publication of the “Rorschach Audio” book, and commit them to print. “Art is not necessarily science, but science is always art”; “as soon as our attention is drawn to certain visual obstructions, we notice them – glasses and our own noses for instance; so, as with blind-spots, normally the mind edits-out such obstructions, to create the perception of an uninterrupted visual field, which is itself partly an illusion”, etc.
