Wow! I assume that this is your own footage as you don't have the 'Fair Use' disclaimer.

Did you set it up or was it a moment of filming that fell into place magnificently?

You have SUCH an enviable/admirable knack for finding/creating moments that resonate. Even though it's not a 'narrative' piece in the traditional sense you have the ability to find those moments and set the audience up to interpret as per your control as the artist.

Everything/everyone in this piece was 'menace'/potentially menacing. I sat on the edge of my chair waiting to find out who/what was the menace even though I knew that there would be no resolution to this premise.

Another brilliant piece. I can't conceive of how you manage to be so prolific! So far, I've yet to be disappointed or feel that your perception/s are forced. You are the organic in an inorganic world!

Like Iryna said, I felt sure there would be no obvious "menace" yet I couldn't help examining every brick, pole and person in tense expectation. Nice work!

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.
