Interesting, never heard of this before. I’ve spent the last 20 years pursuing a hidden order, first discovered using Cannabis. I’ve literally been driven mad by this peek-a-boo phenomenon, suddenly seeing resolutions forming out of chaos, like De Kooning and Pollock. The main problem is that one gets glimpses that all too readily disappear, leaving the artist in a perpetual state of confusion. I took to try and articulate alternative forms in photographs (see link). As with this image, unless one is stoned and even then one has to be lucky, it just seems like a photo with lines on it rather than new imagery because of the extremes of perspective involved. This is the main problem with hidden order, from my experience, the resolutions are so extreme, in terms of perspective, and so beyond ordinary cognition, that the viewer/artist only has tiny glimpses of advanced cognition form and then, usually only at times of peak experience. Still, once bitten it’s hard to get off the trail, a trail I think most artists exploring the visual are on, one way or another.
