“Shotpo” by Ficus strangulensis (West Virginia, USA) using visual poem by Empress Marie Antonette (aka – Marie Wintzer, Japan)
The MinXus-Lynxus Shooting Gallery Project has been completed with the return of “Shotpo” compositions from Ficus strangulensis to MinXus USA, Overlook Hotel. We believe the results are stunning and represent the completion of a successful experiment that has great implications for artists and writers.
We sent Ficus work by Empress Marie, Trashpo by Diane Keys (Elgin, Illinois, USA), and a William Shakespeare sonnet target-formatted for precision text editing and spontaneous holistic composition.
Documentation and analysis will be covered in a series of blogs. The piece above shows a beautiful action-art, Holism-based reworking of Empress Marie’s classic visual poem. The pieces returned show a consistent energy field form of composition with areas of high density hole concentration. Targets reveal highly organic Shotpo prosody structures:

The Ficus strangulensis method of spontaneous composition produced a highly refined Holism:
