My favourite image of the Week 004



Breakfast piece

There are multiple reference points
There are multiple perspectives
I am on the ladder
I am against the ceiling
I am standing in authority
I am not sitting with her
I am not with her
I must continually juxtapose

Within this disorientation, the arrangement is seemingly orderly
The painter, the authoritative who cannot decide
The seated lost within time and place
The pawn as the egg waiting on removal
Should I be more concerned with the flowers precarious standing on edge
Or the sense of a contained cell-like melancholy
A draughtsman at loss with the within presence

My favourite image of the Week 003


Death Note Shinigami Ryuk


From above
Watching, casting and preying
Crossing boundaries of belief
Interpretations of self, questioning justice, making profound decisions
Buried deep within, a want to make meaningful action
Lost in transversed boredom
Lost within duty
There is no care whilst self seeking empathy
Accepting the forbidden to forsake folly, deceit and corruption
This game is deception
In this game temptation is formed by opportunity and the seeking of help
The partnership of do good and the intent
Place, situation and delusion

Intelligent Systems Fall




Was there was a way to resolve?
Before the slaughter began
If there was a to reconcile?
The living would have fewer martyrs?

Why are the decisions of the few never questioned and made accountable?
And, is it more important to believe than to know?

This base position of recklessness  determines a lasting continuum of falling from, hiding from, excusing and reevaluating known-ness

So the machine keeps propagating
The fallen gave their's so we can have ours
With full adoration and support from the populace
Who have never known to over think
With keeping it simple stupid flattening progressive analysis
Questioning has become demonstratively disrespectful
The most palatable deceptions are those that are thin and moral.
Mantras of nonsense

The predetermined dead fall as expected To reconcile worthlessness the predetermined dead are held up in esteem
Our authoritative must build this destination
Our  authoritative must not self-doubt in hopeless realization
Our authoritative must enter war behind a shield of valor

Death is for the inherent victor to celebrate
And through the making of rational stories
To pathway unleashed grieving to grieving of high regard
Where high regard is steeled by righteousness
Where righteousness can be grafted to the living self
The self as the embodiment of virtue, purpose, and determination.
To be absolved from murderous activity

It is in the nation's endeavor to build symbols of high regard
For the living to hide behind
To build a rich and exulted heritage.
Us who are the righteous.
We as one basking in pride and unquestioned freedom from guilt
The predetermined dead sacrificed to profit the living as in-one as in-holiness

This is the way of the fallen
This is the way of the fallen's people
The bestowed is dead
Dead and ignorant of knowing
The living is dead
Living dead and living ignorant
Behind decorated shields of ceremony, we are symbols of virtue
We the magnificent are secured within unity
To shield our eyes away from the decisions of the few
To closing the door on wasteful killing
We refuse to question our absurd positioning.
This being
This associated identity
These acts of selflessness






Intelligent Systems Fall may be commissioned as an acrylic painting on canvas

Park and Shop




What has been visioned as a cleanly planned future.
With all boxes ticked.
Harmonious with nature, functional and efficient.
The promises that life is good.
Living the advertisement.
Park your car under a tree and shop.

Leading Britain's populous trainwreck





https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/jan/23/britain-empire-pride-poll#img-4


At its height (1922), the British Empire governed a fifth of the world’s population and a quarter of the world’s total land area. In general and in the main the British public are proud of their country’s role in colonialism and the British Empire. 

http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/British_Empire

In 1899 Alfred Russel Wallace referred to colony people as subject races and British colony management as a strange mixture of good and evil. Evil being the man-made famines, slave trading, ethnic cleansing and day-to-day violence of empire.

Now that the evil has been forgotten (scratched out), the colonial era is viewed as the long-lost empire. YouGov found 44 percent were proud of Britain’s history of colonialism. It is obvious to me that British education system needs to include Britain's imperial brutality to shift this misunderstanding.

This pride of greatness is a fantasy built on a history of propaganda. And through schooling and popular culture, it has become a deeply held mindset. This pride manifests within public speeches and attitudes by government leaders. The most recent occurring in Myanmar.

Myanmar was ruled with an iron fist from the early 19th century until World War II,  by the insatiable machine - the British Empire. Britain colonized Myanmar from 1824 to 1948 and fought three wars in the 19th century, suppressing widespread resistance. And in the minds of today's British, Myanmar is still irrevocably attached to the bard of the British Empire, as described by Rudyard Kipling. This complex mindset of fact and fantasy, realism and romance, in the British imagination of its heritage and of greatness and superiority.

And this colonialist 'Kipling fantasy' is alive and kicking in Boris Johnson. Did he practice his recital in preparation, or are Kiplings words deeply etched in?

Prime Minister Theresa May has given her public support to Boris Johnson, despite multiple occurrences of insult. Cultural populism has voting power.

The British fantasy is alive and kicking despite the world moving on. Can the British fantasy sustain a new era of “have cake and eating it”? 

Whether the nation can or cannot maintain this heritage fantasy, in Boris Johnson's mind he has the righteous superiority to traverse the world and insult subject races.
