Calculated Chaos in the Superblur Art Movement

As an artist and a member of the Superblur Art Movement there is a constant flow of ideas. One of the advantages of being in an art movement is the idea that the collective mind is better than the individual mind, if everyone has a similar purpose. The book by Butler Shaffer (Calculated Chaos) opened up a whole new way for me (Conrad Bo) to add extra dimensions to my halftone dot paintings. The halftone dot paintings need to be done in a very structured way in the beginning, which is the calculated part. The chaos comes afterward when I start to throw and splatter paint to add extra dots and texture to the paintings. But sometimes I hit a dot and the whole picture disappear. Then back to being calculated by adding the correct dots again so that the picture can be seen again.
