Artist Statement Somewhere Adrift

Image
  Poem Modernism and Promised Prosperity We were glorious when we were young. Having a new and influential way of looking at the world. Free of the arguments from illusion, visionary dreams, and the solitary evil genius. We concentrated on the inner-urban. That was until we arrived And dismissed our problems without evidence. Through powerful leaders doing God’s work. Artist Statement video Somewhere Adrift Since I can remember, Australia's values have been under threat. I am talking about the fear of losing the innate grace, that is,  the subjective sense of the Australian way. The threat list is long and most are foreign. The reported attacks by mass media are external to Australia's W.A.S.P. heritage. They are the values for what our soldiers died for. The land down under, adrift in Asia. We Australians have been under the threat of potential invasion since the frontier wars. The fear is a deep-rooted "settler country" psychosis. And it gets whipped up by politica

Surrounded by death I was the only one ok Pumping out. And breathing in. Ozone, Sulphur dioxide, Nitrogen dioxide, Carbon monoxide, And PM10s. Traffic pollution is killing us. Backfiring. Afterburning. Afterfiring. Are the common causes. Of running on richness. One-off sponsorship You Tube

Fallen from a Great Height

  The Descending Fog It is not the misadventure of accidentally falling in. Or the fear of being pushed in. It is the normalization of staying in. And losing the courage to climb out. When nothing seems worth the effort. We keep our secrets and despairs silent. And foolhardily flout stupidity as optimism. A leap of faith. A whisper on a breeze. A gust of wind. A beam of light. The disparities of wealth and power, Have enabled growth-based failure. What is mine, Has prevented us from taking urgent action. On the significant global issues. The first impact on the biosphere. The second impact on the biosphere. The third impact on the biosphere. The fourth impact on the biosphere Aura Sylle and Tartarus These doors open to the deep abyss. To the land down under. Where a royal corrections corporation kick-started a nation. For more profit. With bonuses for doing better. Proving yourself acceptable. With space to innovate. Within an over-incarcerated population. The distress of the unknown

  While North America and Europe are asleep. Australia is awake. Relocate. The beauty phenomenon. Givenness and in excess. All-American beauty. Their women are the most beautiful. Their men are the most virile. USA exported US$107m worth of frozen beef to China in July. Australia exported US$35m worth of frozen beef to China in July. The USA leapfrogged Australia as the leading exporter of frozen beef to China. Australia is the loser. Ambiguous shared values Excluding Muslims from citizenship. Authoritarian occupation of Jammu-Kashmir. Widespread police brutality. Enlightened self-interest. Exporting recording high volumes of coal to India. Vaccine rollout is "not a race". The sooner we get there, the sooner we get there. Confused. Evoking. Ancient history and myth. One ecstatic impulse. Industrialization. Escape from ancient narratives. To a new order of continuous disruption. Outsourcing public housing is a failure. The stock of available housing for low-income people is

Artist Statement Threat and Aesthetics

Image
  The easiest way to enable change is to substantiate it with a threat. Politicians use threats to win elections and to ward off scrutiny. Leadership employs threats to make a structural change, and to build allegiance against a common enemy. Workers live under the threat of wage loss and increasing financial debt. Artists make aesthetic decisions under the threat of poverty. One-off sponsorship You Tube

  Prejudge your conclusions. Put your rules on the table. Make your customer comply. Hey Hey. The pandemic has caused people to re-evaluate their life priorities. Flip flop Morrison. July 2020 - cannot lockdown. Covid-19. Lockdown. July 2021 - Lockdown will fix Morrissey. Fire in the belly is essential otherwise you become famous and meaningless. Credentialed journalists can be controlled. Citizen journalists are hard to control. Our right to repair the new normal. Artists want to perpetuate this idea that they are still chiseling with a hammer. It makes me laugh. I look forward to when we can live freer than in other states. NSW First. Gladys Berejiklian. Because we are more vaccinated.  Escape is not that futuristic but it is somewhat futuristic. Carpenter. The oppression of having to be like everyone else What we don't want is for there to be higher levels of virus circulating and spending a lot of time with a partially vaccinated population.

Systemic Delusion Modellhut

  Don't shoot the messenger. Prominent missions. Persuasion and exposure. Denial and protection. Collaboration and denial. Espionage and love. Systemic delusion and culture. As night falls fast. The burden. The understanding. Awareness of the ladder. The subliminal inceptions. The stimuli. As time is taken. The accountability of fallen leaves. Vagrant clouds across the night sky. Accountability. The insinuated and sorrowful. And the corruption from within. Submitting to be changed. By a systemic imperative. Endowed through pressure and lip service. Night Fall Dress The histories that shaped today. All the long gone festivities. The outlined visions. The political alignments.  And the imposed norms. The threat of penalization. To systemize accountability. Formulating a principal-agent relationship A construct of Agency agreements Retainer agreements Covert agreements Demonstrated your loyalty To the most important player Your explicit behaviors of adherence  To established norms and
