one of the problems of using reclaimed material is most people seem to be making stuff out of un-salvageable tatt.
Here I saw that the objective and the subjective could change places.
The one could become the other.
It is very difficult to express this. The habitual mistrust of the subjective disappeared; every thought, every feeling, every image, was immediately objectified in real substantial forms which differed in no way from the forms of objective phemomena; and at the same time objective phenomena somehow disappeared, lost all reality, appeared entirely subjective, fictitious, invented, having no real existence…

art needs these attempts to understand the world. needs magic, mysticism & alchemy. is perhaps one side of these equations…
(needs to inspire others to search within & without; create space in which to do it.)

Emma, 18, who had been chained to the main gate by her neck, said: “We can win this.”
this stuck out.
the confused response to this young woman from the ‘evening standard’ was disgusting. too freaked by a person prepared to dedicate their life to activism; they seemed unable to entirely demonise… instead the sense of ‘otherness’, herself as alien, maybe she might as well have crawled out of the pit.
So long as the laws remain such as they are today, employ some discretion: loud opinion forces us to do so; but in privacy and silence let us compensate ourselves for that cruel chastity we are obliged to display in public.
To judge from the notions expounded by theologians, one must conclude that God created most men simply with a view to crowding hell.
Marqis de Sade. Double bubble.
i think the importance of the maquis de sade to contemporary economics cannot be underestimated. oppressed or oppressor.
Some of them are corpses, skeletons, mummies, twitching, tottering, animated by companions that have been damned alive. There are giants that will walk by, though sound asleep. There are things that are theorems and things that are rags; they’ll go by lik e Euclid, arm in arm with the spirit of anarchy. Here and there will flit little harlots. Many are clowns. But many are of the highest respectability. Some are assassins. There are pale stenches and gaunt superstitions and mere shadows and lively malices: whims and amiabilities. The naive and the pedantic and the bizarre and the grotesque and the sincere and the insincere, the profound and the puerile.

i wonder whether in drawing someone it is the demon we draw.

Witchcraft always has a hard time, until it becomes established and changes its name.
We hear much of the conflict between science and religion, but our conflict is with both of these. Science and religion always have agreed in opposing and suppressing the various witchcrafts. Now that religion is inglorious, one of the most fantastic of transferences of worships is that of glorifying science, as a beneficent being. It is the attributing of all that is of development, or of possible betterment to science. But no scientist has ever upheld a new idea, without bringing upon himself abuse from other scientists. Science has done its utmost to prevent whatever science has done.
