I didn't get the chance to log in for your October 3 piece until today... and I'm so pleased that I have been privileged to share it with you.

Very appropriate to celebrate rebirth with la petite mort! A very erotic piece that leaves the viewer with a sense of being disquieted.

I love the fact that, in French, orgasm is described as a little death. It is true that eating, going to the toilet and orgasm are points in our existence that bring us closest to our sense of our own mortality. Orgasm is definitely the most poignant and potent of these bodily functions. Art, at its best, forces us back into this moment/moments of understanding.

PS, Rosa. I think it would be appropriate for you to embed the video as I'm not sure that readers of this blog realise that it's a link. They could misinterpret the title as the entire artwork/statement.

I'm truly looking forward to more posts from you!!!

A wonderful start and an captivating video too. You have re-ignited the discharge flame.

Is discharge Dada? No, it is not. Influenced by and with a similar attitude to, but not Dada..

Is discharge Fluxus? No, it is not. Influenced by and with a similar attitude to, but not Fluxus.

Is discharge art for intellectuals? No, discharge is for anyone and everyone who appreciates creativity in all its myriad forms. Be it static visual, audio or moving image; the written word or the deconstructed, non-linear form. The spoken word and noise.

All creativity is the springboard for discharge. It highjack’s a multitude of genres and disciplines and transposes them onto the internet. discharge is electronically transmitted art, be it via blog, myspace or whatever format possible, it can also be produced and seen in classic formats.

The discharge Chapbook. The discharge Building by Parts book. discharge has no rules. All contributors to discharge are responsible adults. discharge has no leaders although it has an elected body of rotating editors who oversee rather than dictate the flow of the group.

The aim of discharge is to profile creative people and to do away with the pretension of the art world. Everyday people creating art everyday to an exceptional quality.

Art by barrow boys and girls. discharge is international.
