ideosemada are creations intended to plant the seed or seeds of an idea or ideas.

ideosemada No.1 takes its inspiration from the Belgian surrealist painter Rene Magritte.  Perhaps best known for his painting “Ceci n’est pas une pipe”.

In keeping with the concept of mimicalism the image draws on several of Magritte’s works.


On pronunciation – the “ideo” is as in “video”,  “semada” – the start of “semantic” and the end of “armada”.

The etymology of “ideosemada” is linked to “ideosemado“.  The Esperanto “ideo” for idea, with a Latinesque slant created by substituting “a” for the last letter “o” – in the Esperanto word “sedmado” (for planting).
