Life Update

It has been soooooo long since I last posted anything on here but I think I am ready to get back into it.

So many things have occurred in my life in the past few months that I feel are leading to a new chapter of it. A chapter including new relationships, new responsibilities, new creations, and new lessons. I just got back to Asheville a couple of days ago from being gone for a little over a month and a half. It was a long and very full time gone...

My journey took me all up the east coast visiting friends in Baltimore and New York and ending the northern expedition in Maine, where I stayed for an entire month. I was there for the Beehive Collective's work party, which consisted of so many new experiences, amazing introductions to people and ideas, delicious blueberries, and beautiful scenes that it would be hard for me to even begin describing it all. But I think that it was exactly what I needed in this time in my life, which is an exciting realization to now have.

I think I'll keep it short for now but I would also like to share this project that Jonathan Harris recently finished and I personally can really relate to. It's pretty beautiful.

Farewell for now

India: Restricted Internet Speech

This is a frightening thing that could lead to blind nationalism of a whole new sort. People must be able to openly criticize and discuss issues without being regulated and watched.

Even worse, Sunil Abraham, the executive director for the Center for Internet and Society, states that; “whenever there are limits of freedom of expression, in order for those limits to be considered constitutionally valid, those limits have to be clear and not be very vague. Many of these rules that seek to place limits are very, very vague.”

RISE at Warren Wilson

My wonderful beautiful friend, Evan works at her school in a program called RISE. They work on issues such as sexual violence and dating violence, progressing through activism, dialogue, and education to a safer, consensual community. She recently posted some free zines and publications that they have created to spread the word and help people know how to help others. So view them online or print them out and spread them around!

An Article from Mother Jones: Why Do We Keep Falling for O'Keefe's Smear Jobs?

Mother Jones is a smart investigative journalism non-profit that recently has been writing some of the only articles that (to me) seem to actually explain what is going on in our government today. They have also published one recently about this man, James O'Keefe, who calls himself an investigative reporter but seems to be twisting and editing the words of people that have been called his "sting" operations. He basically is fabricating media content that is getting opinions expressed inaccurately and leading to consequences such as executives of NPR losing their jobs. This article by Monika Bauerlein and Clara Jeffery seems to start to dissect these occurrences and put into question why this man is being listened to and taken seriously time and time again.

"Why was this? Simple: A good lie is by definition a hot story—crafted and timed to hit an urgent issue at just the right moment—and in a 24/7 news cycle, that presents a compelling incentive to reporters: "Let's be brutally honest," Weigel told NPR when it finally got around to forensics six days later. "The rush is to get traffic and to get the people of your organization booked on shows to talk about it. [That] leads you to not do the rigor and fact-checking that you do in other situations." And by the time you do, everyone's moved on."

Sustainability Exhibition Project

I am in a show at Trois gallery here at SCAD in Atlanta pretty soon and I made a zine creation station/installation for the show. I want all of those who won't be able to go to the show to still get a chance to see and have a zine so I am posting the images. They are all 8.5 x 11 B&W so anyone can print one out. If you are unable to do so, email me and I can mail you one the old fashion way.

audible sensibilities

I have a new blog about music where I will be posting and holding a discussion about music.

I have always wondered why we don't more often treat our contemporary music scene in the same way that we do fine art or literature. It does not often get a constructive critique or get further analyzed by the general populace. So if you enjoy music and thinking deeper about what is entering into your ears then come check it out and join in on the discussion.

Rabindranath Tagore

"The tendency of the mind is economical: it loves to form habits and move in grooves which save it the trouble of thinking anew at each of its steps. Ideals once formed make the mind lazy. It becomes afraid to risk its acquisitions in fresh endeavors. It tries to enjoy complete security by shutting up its belongings behind fortifications of habits... Their real freedom is not within the boundaries of security, but on the high road of adventures, full of the risk of new experiences."

Atlanta City Structure of the Day!

Yesterday i got to school early and sat up on the roof of the parking deck for a half our, feeling the wonderful breeze and sun a-shining. I am going to start doing this more often and sketching different city structures of the metro-Atlanta area.

"You see my kind of loyalty was loyalty to one's country, not to its institutions, or its office holders. The country is the real thing, the substantial thing, the eternal thing; it is the thing to watch over, and care for, and be loyal to; institutions are extraneous, they are its mere clothing, and clothing can wear out, become ragged, cease to be comfortable, cease to protect the body from winter, disease, and death. To be loyal to rags, to shout for rags, to worship rags, to die for rags--this is loyalty to unreason, it is pure animal; it belongs to monarchy, was invented by monarchy; let monarchy keep it."

-Mark Twain, "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court"

"The austerely monotonous modern American infrastructure has little regard for communal services or human interaction. It helps encourage the individualism that creates a narcoleptic pursuit of possession and property with a despairingly bland but virulent dedication to not looking one another in the eye."

After a long night at work will a fully packed Sauced and then a long morning at work at Bluebird,
I finally got to go for a bike ride for the first time in almost three weeks.
It felt wonderful out so that was good timing. Then (of course) I headed to the studio and finished this.
It is a collage that is part of a larger series that is going to be assisting an installation that i've been working on. I'm pretty excited about it.

Someone else's opinion on math (that I completely agree with)

New Book!

Here's my new book about logarithms! More images can be seen on my website.

New Project: "Histormy/Mr.E"

I have started a new project where I am going through an old American History book from the 1960's titled, Our Free Nation, and cutting out everywhere that it says the word man or men and often a couple words/adjectives around it. This will eventually be a part of a larger installation, which will be exhibited at the end of May!

New website!!

Hey guys! I started creating my new (personal website)
I'm not the biggest fan of personal promotion but this site is pretty cool. They are incorporating more interaction with these type of artist sites which I think is really interesting and positive.
So check it out!

Manifest Haiti: Monsanto's Destiny

by: Ryan Stock, t r u t h o u t | News Analysis

Let It Burn

"A fabulous Easter gift," commented Monsanto Director of Development Initiatives Elizabeth Vancil. Nearly 60,000 seed sacks of hybrid corn seeds and other vegetable seeds were donated to post-earthquake Haiti by Monsanto. In observance of World Environment Day, June 4, 2010, roughly 10,000 rural Haitian farmers gathered in Papaye to march seven kilometers to Hinche in celebration of this gift. Upon arrival, these rewarded farmers took their collective Easter baskets of more than 400 tons of vegetable seeds and burned them all.[i] "Long live the native maize seed!" they chanted in unison. "Monsanto's GMO [genetically modified organism] & hybrid seed violate peasant agriculture!"

BBC Century of the self

This is a documentary that I have recently been watching. It is incredibly interesting and totally worth your time. It is one of those things that I wish that everyone could see and learn about.

It is called The Century of the Self.
There are four parts, this is part 1, titled Happiness Machines

Synecdoche, NY

Everything is more complicated than you think. You only see a tenth of what is true. There are a million little strings attached to every choice you make; you can destroy your life every time you choose. But maybe you won't know for twenty years. And you may never ever trace it to its source. And you only get one chance to play it out. Just try and figure out your own divorce. And they say there is no fate, but there is: it's what you create. And even though the world goes on for eons and eons, you are only here for a fraction of a fraction of a second. Most of your time is spent being dead or not yet born. But while alive, you wait in vain, wasting years, for a phone call or a letter or a look from someone or something to make it all right. And it never comes or it seems to but it doesn't really. And so you spend your time in vague regret or vaguer hope that something good will come along. Something to make you feel connected, something to make you feel whole, something to make you feel loved. And the truth is I feel so angry, and the truth is I feel so fucking sad, and the truth is I've felt so fucking hurt for so fucking long and for just as long I've been pretending I'm OK, just to get along, just for, I don't know why, maybe because no one wants to hear about my misery, because they have their own. Well, fuck everybody. Amen.
