Yay! I KNEW it! It is so much a part of the flow that I'd be disappointed if it weren't.

I'm working on text at the moment (about 20 versions have emerged!!!). I don't know which to go with but will probably send you at least a couple, unless I feel so strongly enough about one version that I want to stick with it.

I'm quite taken by the idea of a couple (even a few versions) going to you for your reaction and preferences. It gives you a chance to pluck bits and pieces out of any version according to what strikes you.

If you do chose to make it a multimedia project, I'm also happy to read, scream and whisper text or noises that would be appropriate to encompassing the work so that it represents the sensibility without resorting to obvious narrative/linear diatribe.

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.
