¶ yesterday i just entered my 29th year. wauu. that's it. i am 28 now.
feeling proufoundly good.
also goin back to slovenia. looking forward. expect the phonecall, soon.
¶ so i digged deep into the white. throw myself around. bouncing and jumping. it the village life again. big is nice, small is beautiful.
thinking inverse. feeling of being unable to see the absolute truth.
i still believe the only stability is movement and the only strict concept is diversity. anyway it happens that one thing triggers the other thought which both don't have direct colligation. like the buterfly effect if you recall.
here in the land of white and white male everything goes its own way. it looks slow, and it is slow cause the roads are white. ,-)
hope mama crew is coming. maybe there could be some rich exchange.
would like to take a bath but there is none. would like to go on bandwith and there is one close. should would could soon.
my text on the new media art, author and viewer is radical even for me. heh.
let me extract it here in three to five lines:
-author is not the owner but a reference and a credit
-team work as a criteria
-down with the ego strategy for succes, up with the creativity (dont tell me about hysteria, nevrosis or similar). we should all in a way be more compassionate and work towards equality. be aware of totalitarianism the american said, but individualism is not the answer. i will fight for fabritius, piranesi and a compiler.
-active viewer. active individual instead of passive citizen.
talked with spaki about local and global. and again about how both have the same value just the content is slightly different.
yesterday's apolonija sustersic video presentation was somehow too melow. she doesn't take risk in anything and makes these so common and mythological difference between east and west in a way how east is definitively going to become west, so get used to it now, 'cause there is no sense in thinking subverse. nothing is bad, nothing is good, everything just comes and go. what looks different is acctualy similar, and what is similar is boring. but the point is to see it and play with it.
¶ the network doesn't work. so i can't continue working on the text by zizek entitled 'ideology, cinism, punk'. i went through the first part about ideology where zizek is citing pascal, who claimed that if you you are not religious and if you don't believe and you would actually like to or you are in a way forced to: you should just live and act like you would be religious and thus you will become so. zizek adds that a similar thing happens with ideology concerning state, institution etc. if you act like you are the part of it, you also really are. pretending/believing is kind of the same. the next part of the text, wich i still didnt read through is about 'pose' (attitude-poza) in the eighties and i wonder how it could be compared with the attitude 'cool' in the nineties.
when you work in the institution like 'my' museum you are often confroted with pro or contra, with questions what is public and what is private. they want to know everything, they should know a lot, i should know a lot, but there is a basic need for privacy and personal space. momentarily working on an exhibition of slovene art from 75 till 85 and on the webpage of the museum. waiting also for some feedback from alex at slab to be able to surprise with the next foo bar.
yesterday was a cool culture hang-out. in kapelica there were thomas kvam and frode oldreid, with the project machines. the simple title results in the straight forward sensational and powerfull installation performance. when you enter the gallery and performance starts, you get all the blood in the head and critical thoughts about today 'machinery geneticalism' starts crossing your brain regular-linking. it's bizzare what is happening out there and this was clearly seen in their performance. the singing robots with the latex face and animated projection on it (similar to one work of laurie anderson and tony oursler) left you when you stepped out of the gallery space. the work was like'what you see and feel is what you get'. there was nothing left outside, so people that don't want to read or explore anything while they are looking at the art object would be extremly content this time. for me it was kind of not enough but spectacular while i was there.
living at the friend's house feels romantic. but she doesn't have a phone line, so no connection in the evening.
otherwise feeling good in the cold and white. desperately waiting for a letter.
12 days countdown.
ej you, don't forget to go snowdiving! ,-)
¶ foo bar has got the shot today. it's the financial breakdown it seems. but let's stay calm and prepare to work different. we'll try to search supporters who will be willing to support either in metal or in paper.
¶ the snow is slowly away. it's warm and wizardly outside.
sitting at my friend's house thinking of moving back to our smallsweet home. since i'm delocalised it feels such a luxury to be in a cosy home and online.
the worm is worldwide, said the news on a radio.
yesterday we were talking about the lost wars. i was amazed how the drug war is lost and was wondering if the same rigidity will happen' in the war about "freedom to share and re-use", in the field of intellectual property. the article said: if everything around us is getting each day more privatised, we should at least share never-ending and il-reproductable "abstract thinking". it sounded so pure and simple, but at the same time to human for today materialistic architecture.
in the next couple of months i will work on a contemporary art project with the stress on east art. it will be challenging after a while being involved more in the new media. back and forward to object art again.
recently also discovered rok golob and his simphony 'the planet of life'. the screaming of children was overwhelming.
before the bed reading oliver marchart does neoism exist?
