Artists and educator, based in Newfoundland Canada. My work centres around the land, the subject and notions of scale and proportion as designated by historical convention. Right now I am interested in "time" from a Bergsonian-seen-through-Deleuze standpoint.

A better move toward le lendemain et le surlendemain. Ici et là. Plutôt qu’immédiat à la vieille veille du jour autour qui tourne toujours, en ronds asymétriques. A little frustrated at the changing routines of day light, of the beginning of the days that come too quickly for the shift change. That are not quiet or accommodating.

 

Criss Cross, parking for blue zoners. Wider and more convenient.

Ça s’peut c’est pas mal de cela qu’on se regarde dans un miroir, avec l’argent qui se pelle sur l’endos en minces bandes d’étamine de bijoutier. En ce jour les pluies on descendus des cieux sans tout au moins épargner les pauvres et les riches. Il fait trop chaud pour l’hiver de Terra Nova; saison qui a conquérit les envahisseurs pour bien des hivers mais pas assez pour sauver les gens pour qui cette terre était la leur.

Aujourd’hui c’est la maladie des Blancs qui nous mets à l’épreuve et on n’y peut rien autre que de s’y en faire. Chèr Trump qui nous Trompe et nous estompe de la malignance d’un peuple trop faible pour vivre trop ignorant pour s’en faire. Voilà, c’est a ton tour de chanter des chansons d’amour. Les mots the Genet nous frôle du passage, nous graffigne comme le chant de Pierre Guyotat, amère et ensanglanté d’une violence hors de portée mais clairsemée dans un jardin d’expulsion.

 

Band aids

Band Aids and Salve, to heal all ills.

Another brief from the Articles and from the Health Sciences Centre. An odd name for a hospital to be honest, a place of care and healing as well as a place for experiments and alchemy. Lovely.

Sadness seems to be my trusted companion, with it happiness and anger and hunger divide their time on my desire and imagination. I would not return to this place by choice, but it is a journey well worth undertaking. One learns both to love humanity and despise it just as much.

Alliances are fickle things, like a spurned lover, or a drunkard husband they seek to destroy all that is respectable in order to fulfill an inordinate need to possess total control on desire. Theirs and others.

At least Jacques Lacan thought that, he wrote of the Other with a capital “o” to name the object of desire, to make it an entity as real as the table you are sitting at. We succumb to our desire for the Other, we are crewel to the Other, we try hard to destroy the Other. We call it desire, but it is murder.

 

Helipad Hi-jinx

Spotted helipad in the great north, layered and juxtaposed with flesh and body. Again.

Still cannot describe the feelings I have; about me, about the universe. I am pretty sure that time is a human invention and that it does not really exist outside our minds; the universe does not happen in time. At least time has no direction, one of our biggest mistakes.

I am healing, it is slow and painful; there are more set-backs than progresses. No one seems to understand what it is to have an illness that settles in the mind and makes that mind confuse its circuitry wholly. It is not necessarily a bad experience but it is the total lack of respect for the apparently normal brains that makes things so much worst, that make us feel that much more like exceptions.

Our society requires conformity, if only to understand time as a universal constant, but that also becomes ideology, demagoguery and murder since those responsible are those controlling our societies. W.S. Burroughs has it right in “Cities of the Red Night” and “Place of Dead Roads” where a pirates society called the Articles celebrates individual rights and freedoms and allows members to settle their differences in any manner they choose, some ways incur great penalties and others ensure the survival of the colony. Every one is responsible for every one else.

Once one is many and time is no more – expansion into dimensions is common place.
