Then it must be so... and it is irrefutable...

Ah. Now I realise we can only present as our own art. The accessories are as pertinent as the body because our bodies have been socialised into commodity therefore, without purchases, we are less than nothing.

We must be bright, shiny and perfect or nothing.

Ruela you Rock! This could be a poster! A tee-shirt!

Tom Snyder to John Lennon: "...so you were in it(The Beatles)for the art?"
John: "Don't kid yourself, Tom. It was for money and women!"

(Paraphrased from a--what, 30+ yr. old memory...)

Now, now, is it really only for the art?

Dear me, Shadow Lor, of course it's for the art! I certainly enjoy it... in fact it's had me coming back to drool... er, contemplate quite a few times.

I can vouch for the integrity. Me? When it comes to the visual arts, I'm something of a 'performance artist'. For example, if I crash a party and don't have a present for the host or hostess I usually end up flashing for everyone as an artistic gift. It's the both the thought and the artistic impact on the audience that counts.

Mind you, at my age, I think it's become more like blowing a raspberry at them than an image that makes a pleasant lasting impression. Sigh.

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.
