I love the idea of Botanizing on the Asphalt--its something i live for. Which is why I'm surprised at her interpretation of it. This is too Campbells soup for me. I thought her past work was more gritty city and generative. But hey bloom on...
I think its a critique of the vogue for animated vines and floral motifs in broadcast and video.If not, the parallel is striking and should not be missed. In the same way Misaki "not strange enough" Kawai is a critique of kawai+i and Japanese culture in general through the lens of an insider - and not "South Park" as someone erroneously and egregiously tried to posit.One wonders why people insist on quoting Goethe, the fey German twit, when one could quote Frank Herbert, who needn't be translated into english from the German, and who's Sturm und drang is as much and ur-text as any."The primordial plant would be the most wonderful creation of the world, for which nature itself should envy me. With this model and the key that it contains, one could invent an infinite number of plants, ones that despite their imaginary existence could possibly be real, thus which are not solely literary and painterly shadows and illusions, but which possess an inner truth and necessity. This same principle would be applicable to every other aspect of life as well." -- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe,
fractalsSo anywyas, what ever happened to Whitley Streiber?
1) fractalbandanaThe victorians invented paisley, BTW
i mean the victorian arabs
my theory is that the Arabic patterning or "arabesque" motif is a sort of psychological guilt transference thing akin to stockholm syndrome. That and a natural love of pattern. So banal.
What do you despise? By this are you truly known. -Frank Herbert

Tidy Bowl ? Its time to get messy I mean really messy.This feels like design?
folk artTheres a show of seventies disenfranchised types going around. Got to give people hope or they start trouble.I love the fad for knitting going around. my sister in law gave me a scarf. What a bitch.
well, i mean does this give you hope?
No matter what you say I don't play that way.art is art and design'sdesign's design and tea andwater goddamn mary anne I don't brew tea and water in the samefucking pot.
the big difference is...this is just and experience or an experiment...
so when walking to work this morning i saw that someone had literized the asphalt --they scratched in "weed=happy". not refering to this little weed in this picture--but--i was thinking how this picture wants you to be happy, but the method that it offers doesnt work. at least not for me. cookies collage is more to the point. i like the conceptual art scarf because it makes me laugh and laughing makes you free, so they say.
waterboarding always reminds me of the enema scene in the farewell symphony by edmund white
