"Time To Talk"

This is my nominee for Person of the Year. The contemporary person leaning forward from previously occupied space to take a stand despite the fact that it's an empty gesture.

I would also submit it as a design for a US postage stamp.

Gary Lee Joyner—Atomic Guitar

Gary Lee Joyner—Atomic Guitar
© 2012, 2017

The intention and goal of the content and form of my Atomic Guitar videos is to shake loose ideas about how to learn, how to experience music, how to play guitar, how to think, and so, in fact, play guitar rather than be a "guitar player"...taking the experience toward Husserlian phenomenology, stripping away received baggage and nonsense in favor of simple clarity about the activity. As I said in one of the videos, the name "Atomic Guitar" isn't intended as the sort of explosive hyperbole we have grown accustomed to in today's consumer-driven marketing world. Instead, it refers to the tiniest particles—building blocks.
