was just typing the beginning of a-web-of-ubu-db.
then it seemed for me that idk why people look for, in my view, fetishise, origins of processes, practices, projects and objects.
…which linked to/with/into links in networks.. links rather than event/cause/effect are the network make up. ..but you see how i wrote this?
rather than something (commonly used).
would i say the earth is a planet rather than a tree?
we could think of planets AS ANALOGOUS trees – but that they are trees..
can everything be linked? is everything linkable? well.. i think that is interesting in the case of ubuweb’s spectrum of action – how its done/being-made – and spectrum of content.
* Spectrum of action –
with an over lord managing the database – there is one person that from a network movement direction seems to be a hub of rejection/acception of links. I like/dislike this link or another – and i have the power to be on a narrow band of frequency because i like it!
* Spectrum of content –
in terms of reference, it can be said that by the centrality of Ubu, content can be linked to king ubu’s shit, and Jari’s link of Ubu’s shit to theatre – which SEEMED unlinkable/non-connectable at the time. Dada, which is/can/may be linked to Jari’s King Ubu, like the surrealists, used, for example, chance processes/strategies to produce stuff.
Chance based stuff carries with it a certain problem/difficulty in the sense that although made of linkables – eg words/colours – they do not link except deep within the artist own sense of profound ego. eg even the artists do not always feel/sense the links, the reason they Push these works is that they themselves “produced/made” it, its a shit made of the artist own arbitrary genius. However, because this arbitrary genial based products do not arbitrarily, but i’d argue – conservatively – rely on meanings, they fail to excite.
If you made a link between rhythms, links and ducks. A link that others might have not explored, and yet, seemed meaningful to someone, they might be excited to move this further. However, if the link seems like a duck.. Sort of a ducklink.. Then, like the dadaist/surrealist activities, the Meaning shifts from the product to the process of making, and the individual involvement in it.. Sort of a workshop.. ..And perhaps with the egos involved, a therapeutic workshop.
This shift is interesting, i think, of and in itself..
However, as the line above does, a link, i think the interesting/exciting/desire-able (desire as in seeking to fill as well as make a void), is to imagine spacetime spectrums of links abilities – knowing they’ll fail.. No?
Links are usually in space with no time.. Links now or not.. Not as in, linked in past, might link again..? No?
