“Balance” is the name I have chosen for my new show at the This and That Gift shop in DownTown Carrboro. It is sort of across from Spotted Dog and the Station, bar venue complex of Mike Benson collage and poster blues and rock and roll fame. I imagine solarization to free many of these local businesses from high electricity bills. I intend to find out what legislators are responsible for reductions in renewables support and targets, and have them shamed and voted out of office where they can continue hurting only those nearest and dearest to them with their ignorance and stupidity combined so deeply that any chimpanzees in charge of the future of NC citizens would do better.
The Opening coincides with ART Walk, which turns out to be 9/11. Islamist fundamentalists are known to like anniversary dates for repeats of great horrors of death and destruction, and we may all take little solace from defensive measures of the Department of Homeland Security. They are likely undercut by bureaucratic agendas independent of any common sense on the part of the secret services more intent on surveillance of us than of our enemies. But we can hope. Likely we are told so many lies claims of successes of “intelligence” officers that they have saved us from annihilation are more suspect than dumb luck.
Prevention of the Apocalyptic Riot gets harder and harder from where I am. I can hope that now that I have built some guitar like instruments to hold or strum or beat on with sticks, people will pay more attention to me.
Either way I need to write another artist statement. “Balance” is key to belief and disbelief. It is better to still be corny enough to at least be able to imagine Utopia. I said once that if you cannot at least imagine it, you ought not call yourself a human being. We all have this concept of ourselves as beings with destinies we are charged to fulfill, counter to what we are forced by the compromises of demands for the necessities of food and shelter that only possible when there is an excess of energy, and our leaders are truly wise we get the opportunity to follow out to fruition. I admire the traditional English working man, who is certain to have a serious hobby.
The work I do to prevent the Apocalyptic Riot, is simply not enough. You all must help me. I have the impression that only a tweet and multiples of tweets get any notice these days. If you all tweet that Kerry had better get on with resolving the Econ War with the Russians since sanctions lead to war, and since they could sell Iran weapons like a couple of “wrong invoice” thermonuclear devices as brothers of the Econ Wars the US in its pinnacle power aims at everyone that crosses eyes or sticks out there tongue as Israel like a small dog that gets its bigger buddy in fights clamors for more provocations barking in our own US Senate, Kerry had better figure out something or all of Distopia as seen in end of the world scenario movies will be our big surprise.
Strength Wisdom Beauty and Humor are intended as ingredients of life my work is aimed to inspire and confirm. Things I make for your wall, are intended to be as good company in your living room as I am.
I’ll try again tomorrow. Thanks
