Name: Mark Kulaga (Koogz) Where do you live: Sarasota, FL, USA Known for: I have evangelized for years the features and benefits for individuals and business alike on how Apple Hardware and Software can enrich their lives. It’s something that I love to do, and it is a natural transition to speaking about Art. Expressing in words and imagery how one can capture fear; love; and all the emotions (not necessarily mine) usually not requiring explanation, but isn’t it wonderful to gain the insight of the creator of the true meaning behind a piece of art? It doesn’t have to diminish the experience or change the meaning for another being, because there may be another meaning applied not considered. This is the beauty of art. There is beauty in the world and it takes on many forms.  It can be the simple yet elegant expression of a formula describing General Relativity (e=mc^2) or it can be a moment captured by a camera forever encompassing that emotive expression, like my dog poking his head out at me through a doorway, or it can be a derivative of an object thought useless but it’s essence used to describe it in a new organic form. Regarding perception: I cannot deprive another person’s feelings. I’m drawn to science again because it explains this quantum effect of outcome based perception. In a sentence, when an object is being observed it cannot help but change. The ultimate answer to the proposed question, since I am not really a known artist to many may be better expressed in “What 300

would you like to be known for?” The combination and recombination of theory with experimental in the Visual and Conceptual Arts. A bolder statement may lead to the father of the conceptual formula for art, as art. Currently working with: Everything and all things entice me to express my art in new ways. I have always been fascinated with physiology; chemistry; anatomy and the other physical sciences such as physics and cosmology. Creating art without them in mind is no different to me than splashing paint on a canvas for the sake of splashing something and then selling it to give light entertainment to someone that has little value for what is really important in life. I have no appetite for such things. Deeper meanings can be explored and discovered through thoughtful introspection and exploration through experimentation or theorization. The contemplative human being has no interest in ephemeral pieces of art. I’m always working on conceptual pieces of art, and have confronted the notion of other artists who despise and consider it a bastardization of any visual art form. So, I created my own formula for Conceptual Art and it is itself a conceptual piece. When did you realize that you were going to work with this/in this area? I think it became clearer when I was 12 and built my darkroom experimenting with pre and post development processes in Black and White film. All that work is lost or in some storage unit after my parent’s died I’m afraid. It was a time of great discovery.
