To be honest, Pete, my reaction to 'Wrath' is extremely disjointed. My sensibilities keep drawing me to the skip in the video between arriving at and the "_/point" and the immediate obliteration/_ing out of the _/point" and so, it having been passed.

Is this - the point of blinding fury at which the most inane sense of anger (depicted as something unrecognised by any other mind/an innocent action and moment to the eye of the observer) - the _ of necessity, blocked out/obfuscated by the entity experiencing 'wrath' which must be eradicated from their lexicon lest it overwhelm all other reasonable sensibilities?

Apologies if I sound like a child trying to establish an absolute explanation of emotive sensibilities. The image you present is powerful in itself... but I am left wondering (possibly the point/_ in itself).

Don't worry about explaining intent unless you wish to so. We do present here at a different levels. Sometimes, however, as with this particular piece, I feel compelled to understand more of the compositor's intent...

Poignant and, obviously, provocative enough for 'audience' to question!

Thank your watching, as well
as taking the time to respond
with thoughtful criticism.

I like drone noises, and I like
objects that move in slow motion,
however if I was a postmodern
theorist I could make stuff up
about emotional content in relation
to existentialism.

It's frickin skeery, I'll tell you that. Frisson!

lol! Point taken, Pete. I do have an ever-so-slight tendency to over-read pieces.

I'm just going to watch it again and try to enjoy it without analysing it as though it were a thesis. Tripping over feeling and needing to know how I was tripped is my personal problem. 8]

That was not a crtiicism at your

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.
