david horvitz 1982-2008

lance the bubo
cut open your little brother that is growing on your arm
you will be free
fratricide is your only escape from this germ
heat a pin over a candle and poke into it
push him out and let him strangle in the hairs on you arm
you are not alone but you should be

hold my hand over the white flame
hold my hand over the white flower
everything you can forget in a day
everything you can foment in a day

chuya nakahara

the mournful sky
high where branches tangle
teems with dead baby souls
i blinked and saw
above the distant fields
fleece knit into a dream
of mastodons

fuck it, why who cares, truck stop speed saves our lives we are alive and still conscious of our world, ourselves, and our relation. fuck it. it's late. we are in montana. i was here before. i was here in the snow. my head is tweaked. green tea using gas station hot water. trucker speed. elk and wolves. wolf walchers. when you are so out of it the social world just doesn't make sense, you are just a body, an organism. all society is just one big hallucination. fuck it. i feel like shit. this is disgusting. i can take a hot shower and vomit everything.

some more photos are here on ed's myspace page in his pics section. maybe you need a myspace account to see them? i don't know?

my head is ok but my body is horrid.

Artist to turn death row inmate into fish food

A Denmark-based artist is planning to use the body of a Texas murderer as fish food for an installation in Germany after the man is executed. The project aims to spark debate about capital punishment, he told The Local.

Confessed triple-murderer Gene Hathorn has willed his body to artist Marco Evaristti, who plans to freeze dry the corpse and have exhibition visitors feed it to a tank of goldfish.

“This may seem obscene,” Evaristti told The Local of the idea he conceived in April. “But I don't think there is anything wrong with this kind of art piece. If you kill people with the authorization of the state it is a heady matter, and to make fish food with a dead body that is going to rot six feet under anyway is not such a big deal.”

Goldfish have a particular relevance to Evaristti's message against what he calls “state authorized homicide.” In 2000, he made headlines with a controversial installation of 10 functioning blenders containing live goldfish in Denmark.

“The new idea is to turn it around,” Evaristti said. “If you were against killing the fish in the blender, think about what will happen if the fish don't eat. The audience has to participate to be human by giving food to the fish if they are good people, otherwise it will be a big fish cemetery.”

Evarissti has been to visit Hathorn, 47, at his Livingston, Texas prison four times, and says he will attend his execution, which is pending a final appeal. The two have developed a personal relationship and correspond regularly by mail, Evarissti said.

The Chilean artist, who is known for making meatballs out of his own fat and serving them to a dinner party in 2007, hopes to exhibit the new work in Germany because it has the most powerful “avant-garde” influence in the European art community. He said he has had several offers from public institutions, which he prefers to more elite galleries.

“It is important to show the work where the audience is normal, and maybe don't normally go to exhibitions,” he said. “It's important that it's not just the elite, but those who get a political vote on issues like these.”

He also hopes to bring the installation to New York so that a US audience can contemplate capital punishment, he said.

There has been some question as to whether the donation of Hathorn's body for such a purpose is legal, but Evarissti says he believes there won't be a problem after discussing the matter with Texas authorities.

“Normally the inmates donate their bodies to science experiments, and this is kind of an art experiment,” he said.

Here is a small essay, which I think is the introduction to the book, but i'm not sure.

Michel De Certeau - The Practice of Everyday Life

This is good, maybe little dense, but good. Essential reading in the current discourse on 'the everyday.' Talks about ways of subversion through appropriation and what seems like, but is not, complacency.



praying for you
