The dark side of love

Shadow Lor said...

Really, is there any other side to love? Brambles and briers and dried petals all in a row.

Can wash my arm but...

Yeah, the Macbeth syndrome, right?

What, Ruela? You still develop your own questions? Oh, JB, remember that poor Lady Macbeth lived in the pre-psychodrycleaning era. Nowadays, ECT is back in vogue and can bleach out any mental stains...

Love the image, Ruela. It strikes me as the organic meets the organic and feel uncomfortable because they have nothing to talk about but have the paparazzi swarming around looking for a story.

Fabulous image, R. We are all organic and decaying. Appearances of being disparate IS merely appearance. The shock of an easily identifiable form juxtaposed against the supposedly easily identifiable form of 'inanimate' objects creates a wonderful tension. It struck me as being a struggle between 'I AM true entity' desperately demanding to be recognized in a landscape of entities that don't have the capacity to recognise themselves.

Is the desperate arm of an entity with the intellect to claim itself as being viable any more valid than the decayed/decaying organic forms it struggles against to be recognised?

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.
