Redemption is a painful purity to seek

Tell me, my love,
Do you have the will?
Tell me,
Do you have the way?

I have seen a million things.
Wanderlust, you know,
Something about keeping on the move,
Something about running.

Redemption is an empty promise

Tell me, is it worth it,
Subjecting yourself to such?
Take my words, child,
Follow me.

I have an outline in mind,
A nagging suspicion.
Take it up with the others as I,
I turn a deaf ear.

Redemption is a painful purity to seek

I really like the point of this piece, it sorta speaks to me in my current situation.

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.
