From The Words of Robert Kernodle

Yes, I can see it now:

In another ten years, Tony will have written so many websites that he will BECOME Google. He will be exposed all over the globe and perhaps to the ends of the solar system. He will include all his friends and photos of their inspired work. He will sit for days on end, hours on end, with the aid of life extension aids, genetic emplanted synthetic biological structures,... one step away from a strong artificial intelligence transhuman,... typing, typing, typing away,.... another website, and another, and another,.... the earth will become engulfed by the sun's expansion, the oceans will dry up,... yet still he will create more websites to expose more artists, and more, and more, and more.

Humans will become extinct, and a little skinny barely humanoid, tentacled creature will accidentally step on him, not realizing that it was HE who was their predecessor, engendering the very transformation for which he and all his artist cohorts had no clue.

Artist Robert Kernodle - Fluidism - Art Of Fluid
Fluidism is the art of manipulating real fluid mixtures to discover visually pleasing patterns. Using containers or surfaces to pool liquid paints and other fluids, the artist drops, pours or otherwise adds layers, while observing spontaneous patterns, which he then captures with a camera. A human hand controls the boundaries of the pool, the beginning colors, and the choices of which fluids to use. The so called "laws of physics" take care of the details.

I love Robert's work! Robert and I had bump heads in the beginning. Now, I respect and admire his work. Robert Kernodle: The "Fluidism" King.

Actually, I never perceived that Tony and I ever bumped heads. I always knew that I was toying with the edge, where the best creative consequencies usually arise.

This is what I do in my signature style, FLUIDISM. Turbulence in fluids can find pleasing forms sometimes. Turbulence in communication is similar. Dissipative forces are the universe's true creators. It's not always as pretty as we would like it to be, DURING THE ACTUAL PROCESS.

Human form itself is a consequence of a long chain of dissipative forces that find cellularized resonances in increasingly complex agglomerations. The shapes I discover in FLUIDISM are the primal precursors of the shapes of cell membranes, organs, arms, legs, faces, bodies, societies, civilizations.

We all arise from the ocean - the sacred fluid foundation that reflects an even greater cosmic fluidity.

Besides that, I just find fulfillment in what I see in my images. Even if I could not elaborate on them verbally, they still would stand on their own in my eyes alone.
