"Ah, Black Rose, you have such a magnificent sense of creating the drama of confrontation as slow and dramatic. Again you speak of orifi and phalluses in swarms... The bees are always working away, darting in and out of the everpresent moment. So much to do; so much to be done. Process goes on. They are interchangeable from moment to moment, generation to generation, beginning to end".

Dear Iryna,

Thank you very much, your appreciation of my work is always so warm, accurate, human sensibility that feeds and encourages it to continue.

I allowed myself the license to publish a comment of yours in my video "Confessions" because with it, you enrich the proposal I made. I hope to do the right thing. You know that art is passion and instinct.

If we move forward, helping each other, because they grow one, grow others, so, soon you will get a very special invitation.

With love and admiration that you feel:

Matilde Rosa

My dearest Rosa. I only found this post now! I was going through Discharge 6 to check that I hadn't posted a piece I'd intended to post earlier...

You are my sister, and I say this with all my heart. You are welcome to quote me or even to use my words in your own order because I know you will create something magnificent from them.

You must know that we have gone through flooding here, too. It's been hard to keep up communications... Will communicate with you soon!

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.
