all i remember: primitivity the shade of chiaroscuro. montage: groveled meeting between the fair and the swarthy. primordial multiculturalism. the world wrapped inside out.
“art is the moral dimension of our living”
after reading laurent berlant’s most recent book in the insulated chamber (wrapped under two wool blankets), i was inspired to write: a repose. feeling otherwise. reactions to the absurd (subtitular mourning). i found myself typing frantically on my phone, plexiglass a pillar of knives. i understood then how fairness could cut. oh my god, why would people light unicorns on fire?
ehat the fuvk is hoing on. so many sci fi horrors / such bullshit. hyperstimulation–i would like to fuck jared leto. that blonde one, ryan gosling. popcorn on sfreen, popping me out. i think im sitting next to a 40 year old man and his mom oh my god ehy eould people light unifocb s on fire
“To be militant without program”
odd sensation. men in war remind me of hemingway. reminder to self: read post-wwii. glorify it. damn.
“X MARKS THE NEW IDEAL. ART PHOTOGRAPHY AS A… (INNER REALITY) MIRROR (OUTER REALITY) WINDOW POSTCARD (NO REALITY)”
here is a mechanism of transformation: the mundane meets the absurd and through the framework of PHENOMENA (or is this what forms phenomena) the world is changed and an alternative utopia is envisioned. absurditee a la the phenomenon a la rupture! feeling otherwise, into the shattered glass! a fuzzy video recording: what an anathema to the achievements of feminism. the phenomena as a mechanism through which utopia is imagined. i finally understand kant. still, there is no truth.
“ARCHITECTURE SHAPES OUR DREAMS”
pardon me. is this too personal?
is this the sublime, to be returned to a home i once knew. to relive and relocate the feeling otherwise lost to approach
my dreams filled with excitement at the prospect of return, but which
particular kind of crazy: a speculum of inward folding ghosts. can a dream be a fetish, or is it a palimpsest already haunting the disappeared grave marker?
