29 Ifs and a few others?

If imagination is imprisoned by other realities – eg “do it” ongoing exhibition if imagination has its own reality that aspires, like realities do, to live itself rather than as an interpretation of itself if imagination is an interpretative If (an if that Can be interpreted, yet once interpreted is not an if in the […]

agree to power download, deploy, signup you are my biatch err user now?

OK Time for a quick short and grammatically flawed rant..? User agreement/s.. Where are the user DisAgreements? Why is it that because I fancy doing stuff, am being asked to agree 1st with some arbitrary thoughts of someone..? No disrespect, mind. You want to express, argue, question, wooteva with your thoughts – fab!! In fact, […]

gaps of deception and deceptively honest gaps?

To type here in any kind and manner of language/s – I have to deceive myself as to the range of my knowledge and possibly abilities. (Both in terms of language and stuff am talking re/about..( That deception, makes a sort of “gap” between claims for reality and the stuff that’s linked and shareable among […]

beep beeep beepbeep

Since am going to be skateboarding on Palestine[‘s roads, it seemed like an idea to try engaging people via peeping for a cause kind of request. Initially, I thought it will be an idea to use it also as a way to inform about the project via some web address which will be descriptive. eg […]

sequences consequences links and politics?

Here’s a bit of text from the Guardian’s g monbiot ramblings today regarding think tanks, “media” and tobacco corps: When the BBC was told that tobacco companies have admitted funding the IEA, the reasoning changed again. Now it argues that it would be wrong to assume “that an organisation adopts a particular position on an […]

imagination and violence?

Imagination technologies do not mean anything, in my mind. Nothing innate, nothing in them that isn’t violent by its nature. However, nothing in them that Is naturally violent. eg a firearm tech is by its nature to produce a violent event. Might not be an act, but even burning stuff is violent.. However, writing tech, […]

majdanek, treblinka, etc. – death yes, camps?

not so much..? I find it very painful in my throat calling treblinka, for example, a “death camp”. Quotation marks make it easier.. Is it being selfish? Arbitrary? Ignorant? Surely, the personal sensations, whichever these might be, are not more than the usage value of the common term? However, there is a sense that perhaps […]

exchanges community boxes and biases?

Many people tell me the idea of going around palestine seeking artists to exchange with is a bit dangerous. Why? The reply is always to do with the complex makeup of Palestinian society and politics, never the occupation’s power, abuse of energies, and of intelligence. Yesterday a jordanian judge was shot dead by the occupations’ […]

power is illegit by the very sequences

of having to have powers? SEQUENCES OF POWER * I really do not want this power burden. But hey look, no one else it taking responsibility to use power and fix the problem. Now if I have to fix the problem, I’ll need to do stuff, reluctantly of course, and only for your benefit, but […]

a political aesthetics with the good bad & ugly and current crimea

focused power play/dance? Lets see how this can be s/pan out.. I caught myself feeling/sensing something rather childish/infantile. With a new struggle between the russian federation and “the west”/usa, i sensed a with for “the West” to “win”. Why? When did this come about and How??!! Are they not all as anti free & fearless […]

CommunityBox exchange for the dead-sea area artists – developments from

Here’s the initial idea, and a quick recap bellow: Through various crossings, such as the occupation’s borders, networks localities, technological physicalities, exchange sequences of time, networking and timing, surfing surfaces materialities (skateboarding), spoken, imagined and art archiving languages, cultural interpretations (eg anonymity as a cultural question), and other elements – the project will facilitate artistic […]

deadsea/palestine gallery archives and how they might evolve?

I am feeling a bit uneasy about the curated archives in community boxes because it feels finite, unquestioning.. Sort of default and defaulting to a known, rather than pushing/exploring – I suppose.. It seems that since the process skates/transgress borders as well as notions of art, artists roles and how they might link over space […]

thoughts or contemplations re power, imagination, embodiment and

art? Was checking arts linked Occupy Museums acts, and asked myself why am not exactly taking part of such actions/activities.. There seems, for me, to be a fair few elements that seem to prevent me from taking part, however here & now I’d like try focusing on power. To do occupation, perhaps only in my […]

a curious case of a “security” establishment that is against biometric

databases? err.. for its personnel.. Am pasting here a g-translated¬† article,¬† hebrew -to-english, because I could not find a related data in english and i think the publisher, haaretz newspaper, ( haaretz = “the land”, a tern used on its own Only in ref to palestine, btw) seems to take off or restricts periodically access […]

ignorance of dangers and dangers of ignorance?

A few unrelated nor linked people told me that the idea of skateboarding, seeking artists and linking exchanges of community boxes in Palestine, might be a dangerous practice indeed. They said I should not ignore the possible dangers and try at least to resolve them. However, am increasingly become aware, or seemingly aware(?) of a […]

how art is when marketed and communicated?

Art marketing, perhaps the idea of it, gets on my tits – though it could also be that said tits are a tad too sensitive.. Just bumped into this art marketing info.. Am just struck, I suppose, by the non questioning tone of communication and marketing in art.. With the idea that art does language, […]
