I close my eyes. The are only two colors laying horizontally: A pale green, and bleached amber. These colors evolved into many overlapping bokeh that I eventually call glitters. They are surprisingly irregular with soft edges. I decide to make every glitter a composite of two translucent circles that don’t completely overlap and assign each with a random color. Each glit is an object of class glitter with different transparency and magnitude. I get the code wrong, but the result is more interesting as the masses of shapes concentrate and blend to as if forming letters and symbols. Different iterations and experiments with color:
Miosis (or myosis, from Ancient Greek μύειν, mūein, “to close the eyes“) is a term with various definitions, which generally include constriction of the pupil.

I try closing my eyes. On the horizon there are many glits. They flow like the traffic, blink like a light house, and fade like a star. Some overlap and create new shape, while others fade in motion to reveal a new formation. I want to keep them forever.
a vision about light
is to feel the eyes
every light beam, lending to each eye,
two sides, two hands, and legs, everything in pairs
making and breaking
nominating and dominating
flowing and glowing
The object was intangible. So was the subject. As the lines grew so did distraction and the fear of losing the subject: Representative objects tend to become symbolic. The rhythm was important. So was the intentionality. The patterns and motifs had movement. The geometric symbols became more subtle and soon embraced. The leaves and flowers became the best symbols for the subject. Vegetative life grows yet appears fixed. I was happy with my first attempts… the subject reflected the object and the cold-calm scaffolding and the warm-wacky feelings, reminded me of the reason I started this project.
I heard about “story-coaching” in a Digital Storytelling workshop back in 2005. It was a time of volunteer work at the community technology center and non-profits: Capacity building, bridging the digital divide, open access, media literacy, community building… and Digital Storytelling was the perfect answer. I conducted this workshop at high school and university levels and will be posting some of the videos that I have committed to spreading. DSW would have a great impact on the course my life.
