You again?!

Manly P. Hall, the modern day pop star of The Mysteries was said to have met a horrible fate in death. The coroner reported that when they found him his body was so covered in ants they he was rendered unrecognizable. All those tiny vulturous mouths tearing as one in solid carpet chorus of fly shit and pepper carrying away what absurd moisture was left of his Orphic flesh into holes in the sand.

The Futurist Manifesto as archetypical prophecy. Its has the tone of Nietzche, who called himself dynamite.  "Man will use this progress to sincerely let his instinctive nature explode."quote from Futurist Manifesto. The explosion as a shape or icon. It has a prime origin and is expanding equally in all directions. I have observed contemporary creative styles across genres and mediums mimic this as a way of transcending linear sequentiality. Like the explosive model our thinking expands in multiple directions with origin but timeless. There is also something in Nietzsche's aphoristic writing style that is of service to this explosive shape.

on a lighter note-some Russian literature for your troubles. Dostoevsky "if a man loses  hope and has no aim in view, sheer boredom can turn him into a beast.'

Sabbath of the penal servitude of willing

"before the subject attempts to formulate judgments about that experience  or -aesthetic experience consists in the subject's achieving will-less [willenlos] perception of the world. In order for the subject to attain such perception, her intellect must cease viewing things in the ordinary way—relationally and ultimately in relation to one's will—she must “stop considering the Where, When, Why and Wherefore of things but simply and exclusively consider the What” (WWR I, 201). In other words, will-less perception is perception of objects simply for the understanding of what they are essentially, in and for themselves, and without regard to the actual or possible relationships those phenomenal objects have to the striving self. the Sabbath of the penal servitude of willing wheel of Ixion stands still ugly can lead to the necessary state of will-lessness that is necessary for the aesthetic experience.
beauty When the subject's transition to the tranquil, will-less state of aesthetic contemplation occurs easily, that is, when the objects “meet that state halfway,” becoming “representatives of their Ideas by virtue of their intricate and at the same time clear and determinate form” (WWR I, 225), then the subject experiences the beautiful. Natural objects, especially flora, accommodate themselves most easily to the experience of the beautiful.
However, objects can be resistant to aesthetic contemplation in two main ways: either they may be stimulating to the bodily appetites or they may be hostile in some way to the human will to life." Copyright © 2012 by

Idol Hands

If ever I have drunk a full draught of the foaming spice—and confection-bowl in which all things are well mixed:
If ever my hand hath mingled the furthest with the nearest, fire with spirit, joy with sorrow, and the harshest with the kindest:
If I myself am a grain of the saving salt which maketh everything in the confection-bowl mix well:—
—For there is a salt which uniteth good with evil; and even the evilest is worthy, as spicing and as final over-foaming:—
Oh, how could I not be ardent for Eternity, and for the marriage-ring of rings—the ring of the return?
Never yet have I found the woman by whom I should like to have children, unless it be this woman whom I love: for I love thee, O Eternity!
For I love thee, O Eternity!-Nietzsche  Teehee he said foaming...
P.S. Beware the syphilitics teaching morals.

Mercurial grate

Now, as I said before, Ruskin was perfectly aware of all this, but he had no such metaphysical background which would enable him to state definitely what he meant. The result is that he has to flounder about in a series of metaphors. A powerfully imaginative mind seizes and combines at the same instant all the important ideas of its poem or picture, and while it works with one of them, it is at the same instant working with and modifying all in their relation to it and never losing sight of their bearings on each other—as the motion of a snake’s body goes through all parts at once and its volition acts at the same instant in coils which go contrary ways.

Wandering Stars

Eleusinian mystagogues: "Do you fall on your knees, multitudes, do you divine your creator?"

Shifting Sands

art-speak blubber bomb in three two…
1.What three words would you use to describe yourself as an artist? (not the artwork)
2.What words would you use to describe your artwork?
3.What influences can you discern?
4.What materials do you avoid?
5.What materials do you favor?
6.What materials have you always wanted to try, yet have not?
 7.Whose work do you like? (art or otherwise)
8.What kind of style would you say describes your work?
 9.What kind of artwork do you like?
10.What kind of artwork do you dislike?

answers- 1.Idiosnchratic,exploratory,social
2.Voyueristic in the sense that my content is mainly about people and their stories and the spaces those stories require. There is a sense that the subjects in my experiments are vaguely aware of my gaze as the diviner of their experience.
3.The fall of an Ottoman Empire. I trace my early visual influences to 70’s television and cinema. Most of my memories of ecstatic moments are associated with cartoons and animated visionary speculative realism. I think there is a visceral reaction to tumultuous shifts in social meta structures that causes us to seek distillations and reductions in our environment. Animation and intense characterization are by products of these reactions. The Wizard of Oz impressed me greatly. A paracosm of novelty and problems that call for innovation. I see the Ottoman Empire falling as such a shift in world events prior to the turn of the century. I think this fall left a void that created options in many fields. It would be difficult to say but I think People like Frank Baum were looked to for sewing reality back together. 4.Toxic ones
5.Economicaly sustainable materials. Materials that cultivate their elegance from genesis to revelation. Low maintenance materials. Materials with indigenous color.
 6.Bronze casting Sheet metal-automotive processes without the mechanical elements.
7. Anonymous mediaeval pen trial doodlers. 8.Home made, intimacy, folk,outsider or faux naive as defined by a neurotic entertainment of the necessity to make. Immediacy in the formal aspects, layered in content.
8.Maximalist non linear non sequential hyper narrative speculative realism graphic illustration. 9.Traditionally my taste could be described as sublime in that I find I am attracted to works that address a fleeting nature associated with the event we are perceiving as reality. That can manifest in a variety of creative, destructive, nurturing or stasis driven acts.
10. Work that attempts to maintain defunct meta structures or systems. However the grotesque theatre that arises from gestures defined by this form of sloth and lethargy has the potential to be radically engaging at the moment of their decay or sudden implosive demise.
