Art Fiction

To define an approach to my work on, I feel a need for a new genre: Art Fiction. My expressions are works of art fiction that could someday be relevant to science but are for their own sake wonderful to behold. They aren't essentially answers to life's questions or medicine. They are adventures in consciousness. The images above are examples of art fiction. Below are mentions to art fiction on this website and definition.

Wonder in Aliceland Preface This story is a unique work in a new genre: Art Fiction. Art fiction is distinguished from science fiction in that: 1. The story is told primarily in pictures rather than text. 2. The insights determining the setting and action of the text are artistic and visionary rather than scientific. 1979. Wholeo Books intro to WinA Art fiction. The story of the prenatal development of psyche, including consciousness. An artistic and visionary presentation, in pictures and text, of Wonder's experience. Also intro to Light Body, Funicula's visions of the expansion of consciousness into the next dimension. How-to-do-it, with pictures and text. 1979, 1980.

Zen/Zero Show Overview This is experimental work, more like a visual essay (or art fiction) than a math theorem. 1988

Cross References for Inspiriting Aura/Wavelengths Art fiction: "Birth of a Vibe". A vibe appears, fluxed from a drop of cosmic juice. According to this vision, a vibe comes symmetrically, dividing out in opposite directions, to left and to right. Arrival in colors is greenly, redly, and bluely. Like most born creatures, the vibe uncurls, lengthens, flattens, expanding into its mature form. 1997

Lookout for 2008 - MindField, connector Revisit the idea of art fiction in the preface to Wonder in Aliceland. I don't know if I'm discovering or creating them (connectors). It is not clear when envisioning is an act of inventing. 2008-01-24

Deer lichen on the Emerald Coast FAQ and Lookout 2010, MindField 2012 for art fiction, imaginative fantasies. 2009-04-30, 2010-01-06

Lichen on Stage at Seaside Amphitheater I envisioned putting my own favorite show on the stage. I imagined inviting local lichens from the nearby forests to be an audience. I did it in Photoshop. The guest performer is a false reindeer lichen from the Pine Barrens, New Jersey. Some of the local lichens gathered on the green around the stage are the same species, Cladonia subtenuis, but in Florida are known as dixie reindeer lichen. My rogue art fiction action seems to have caught the attention of the surrounding buildings, trees, and cars. I feel they are looking on. 2009-09-24

What Does 2012 Mean for Us In 1998, I had developed the meanings (of visions) in art fiction books. 2010-09-22

Matrix 2012 is a collection of pages about acting on a vision, which is evolving into an art fiction movie. 2012-04-19 continuing


Basically, I leave it up to others to classify my work with respect to everything else. However, I wonder what my mystical adventures are getting me into. I like science fiction and fantasy and certainly there are such elements but there are differences.

Compared to Science Fiction

Here are some quotes from Wikipedia's science fiction page followed by comments related to art fiction:

"Technology impacts artists and how they portray their fictionalized subjects, but the fictional world gives back to science by broadening imagination." Yes, art fiction does that, particularly visual artists with visual subjects.

"Science fiction is a genre of fiction dealing with imaginary but more or less plausible (or at least non-supernatural) content such as future settings, futuristic science and technology, space travelparallel universesaliens, and paranormal abilities. Exploring the consequences of scientific innovations is one purpose of science fiction, making it a 'literature of ideas'." Yes, art fiction does that but is a 'visual expression of ideas'. Furthermore, the reality of a subject might be proven by feelings, perceptions, sensations, or consensus as well as scientific experiments.

"Science fiction is largely based on writing rationally about alternative possible worlds or futures. It is similar to, but differs from fantasy in that, within the context of the story, its imaginary elements are largely possible within scientifically established or scientifically postulated laws of nature (though some elements in a story might still be pure imaginative speculation)." Art fiction is not necessarily rational, written, or about worlds in space or time. Yes, art fiction tends to be imaginative speculation.

"The settings for science fiction are often contrary to known reality, but most science fiction relies on a considerable degree of suspension of disbelief, which is facilitated in the reader's mind by potential scientific explanations or solutions to various fictional elements."

Art fiction requires a willingness to entertain the topic. This can be engaged by subjective means in addition to scientific explanations or solutions. If science fiction is generally related to outer reality, art fiction is generally related to inner reality.

Compared to Fantasy Art

Here is a quote from Wikipedia followed by a comment on art fiction.

"Fantasy has been an integral part of art since its beginnings, but has been particularly important in mannerismmagic realist painting, romantic art, symbolismsurrealism and lowbrow. In French, the genre is called le fantastique, in English it is sometimes referred to as visionary artgrotesque art or mannerist art. It has had a deep and circular interaction with fantasy literature."  

Visionary art can be fantasy and art fiction also doesn't have to be scientific. But art fiction reports experiences and ideas as if they are interesting enough to be candidates for reality. We could categorize it as inner realist, metarealism, and beyond-brow.
