Destroy Reality

July 15, 2009

I’m currently reading “Outlines of Scepticism” by Sextus Empiricus, written around 100AD.  Sextus here is collecting thoughts of Pyrrho of Elis, who was too real to write; he just lived it.   Pyrrho developed Scepticism after some exposure to Eastern philosophy, while on adventures with Alexander the Great into India in 327 B.C.

I finished reading “The Triumph of Anti-Art” by Thomas McEvilley, which argues “art as life” overthrew Modernism with Conceptual and Performance Art.  Marcel Duchamp pioneered anti-art in 1912 after discovering Scepticism. The art of the 60-70’s that debunked Modernism was informed by Duchamp.  The art that debunked Modernism is my favorite sort, and you can draw a precarious line to the present with people like Francis Alys and fellow [street] artists.  Precarious, because street rabble don’t trust the capital “A” Art tradition.  But it turns out there’s a tradition inside this tradition that doesn’t trust it either.

Book in the Mail

July 10, 2009

The Rojo 3AM-6AM book arrived in the mail!
Collaboration and Photo credits are listed HERE (we ran out of room).
I have to say thanks again to everyone.  Artist’s names were in the art/photo credits so i forgot to put them in general thanks, it kind of goes without saying; they’re a big part of this in the material sense, but then also in the inspiration/faith department. xx

My Camera

July 3, 2009

Currently I have a Canon S80, and enjoy using it.  It has the megapixels CCD, LCD monitor, a wheel / 4-way thing, XGA video capture (15 fps), USB 2.0, SD/MMC storage.  Lately its been under performing, but that’s after 3 years of heavy use.  I took it apart to try and fix something and set the tiny screws in a glass, and then (accidentally) drank them this morning with juice.
