I'm tip-tilting for all of us.

Just had another look and it had the same effect on me: the uncomfortable smile.

It strikes me as being a good thing that we (referring to all of us and anyone who stumbles on this site) 'get' it. It's not a nice thing to 'get'/it's a wonderfully uncomfortable place to meet and acknowledge our commonality.

We are all MaD-ecker. It's good to be perfectly imperfect. It's good to be hair-triggers ad infinitum.

Iryna, your comment has me reflecting a bit, and I find myself slightly amazed at the facility we tubes possess for negotiating/navigating/interfacing one another's MaDness. Most of us anyway. And I'm hoping it continues to increase, because my trigger is, I'm purty durn sure, gettin' hairier by the day.

I'm reminded of a tee-shirt I saw back in the 80's: "Conform, Go Crazy, or Become an Artist"

"Conform, Go Crazy, or Become an Artist". I love it, MaD-ecker. Naturally or synthetically, I know you understand that I, too, am MaDness.

We spend so much of our lives negotiating a relatively comfortable path with tubes of the contained variety. If nothing else, there is pleasure to be derived from encountering tubes, like ourselves, which we intuitively knew existed in the 'out there in the larger picture world'.

Personal religions/superstitions we evolved in order to preserve a sense of NOT being unique, cyberworld has allowed some of us to finally meet at whatever point in our existence we reside in. I find this uncomfortably comforting.

Hugs to you and your perfect doubts, disturbing emotional states and imperfections!

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.
