Estate findings

Out of an old bag at the New York fleamarket came these little offerings.....
$ 10 for a brief look into someone's history, life, aspirations, longings, sorrows and above all their wish to be remembered. I don't know their names. They are most probably dead by now.

The only dictionary worth reading when you feel cynical....."Project for a Glossary of the Twentieth Century", by J.G. Ballard - (I especially like the one about "bodybuilding"...)

This small but astute machine has found an elegant way of restraining and rediscovering all the lost enchantments of the flesh.

A shrine to the desperate hope that one day the world will listen to us.

The economies of mass production applied to self-disgust.

The moral degradation of the Machine.

The original digital clock.

A recognition that nature has endowed us with one skin too few, and that a fully sentinent being should wear its nervous system externally.

Fear of the Future
I would sum up my fear about the future in one word: Boring. And that's my one fear:..that everything has happened; nothing exciting or new or interesting is ever going to happen again... the future is just going to be a vast, conforming suburb of the soul.

Catastrophe theory in slow motion.

All the millions of cars on this planet are stationary, and their apparent motion constitutes mankind's greatest collective dream.

Asexual masturbation, in which the entire musculature simulates a piece of erectile tissue. But orgasm seems indefinitely delayed.

Sociopath as saint.

Do-it-yourself genocide.

The Gothic of the information age.

Our delight in food is rooted in our immense relish at the thought that, prospectively, we are eating ourselves.

Perhaps unwisely, the brain is subcontracting many of its core functions, creating a series of branch economies that may one day amalgamate and mount a management buy-out.

Furniture and Industrial Design
Our furniture constitutes an external constellation of our skin areas and body postures. It's curious that the least imaginative forms of furniture has been the bed.

On the autopsy table, science and pornography meet and fuse.

Apollo Mission
The first demonstration, arranged for our benifit by the machine, of the dispensability of man.

The great appeal of alcoholism, and the reason why it will never be eliminated, is that it provides an opportunity for honourable or even heroic failure.

To the sane, always the most glamorous of mental diseases, since it seems to represent the insane's idea of the normal.

Science Fiction
The body's dream of becoming a machine.

Criminal Science
The anatomizing of illicit desire, more exciting than desire itself.

Rude awakening

I don’t have room for more love in me
But I’m a fancy licker

I sit behind you and do those things you never dreamt of
Rude, but not imposing

And you come, and come
Then I purge you, blackout

You yell and you sigh and you sing
I play along the cord

Your’e muscle, your’e clam
It secretes a vague dream

Senseless and alive
I don’t need to touch you anymore

You are already there

Lucio Fontana
Concetto Spaziale Attese
(Slashed painting)
Oil on canvas

If I were to put two artworks together, I would like to take the text from Barbara Kruger's 80's work and plonk it together with Lucio Fontana's 60's painting above.
The result would be an artwork called: "Someone wants to slash a hole in you and fuck you through it...buddy"

That would be an appropriation of sorts. Wait until I get my hands on a Van Gogh.


I'm not here
but still you felt me

I've moved on, into the text
and still you heard me

I ran away
and still you cried for me

I never intended
and still you sued me

I crashed the machine
and still you punched the dashboard

I got lost
and still you look for me

I was lucky
and still you hated me

I came home
and still you did all the things above
