Dominic Heffer's "Meta/Semantic/Painting" Film Shown on Big Screen Leeds in Yorkshire, England

9 Dec 2018 4:01 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Dominic Heffer is a trustee of the Institute of General Semantics and an artist based in the United Kingdom.

Throughout December, his recent work "Meta/Semantic/Painting" will be shown on Big Screen Leeds, Millenium Square, in Leeds city centre.

The work was initially made for the 2018 General Semantics Symposium in New York City.

The work shows the developing structures of three paintings through a series of animated thought processes that emerge into "final" images. Ideas such as Alfred Korzybski's map/territory analogy and Gregory Bateson's research into denotative communication, inform the work.

You can see the full length film at

Below are some representative images from the work.
