The Glitch Art 'movement' and Glitch aesthetics are a very important phenomenon being visible in many art forms. Glitch is the new media and digital term for a very old technique long live the wrong ones.

'Tragedy is Dionysian impulse discharging itself in Apollonian imagery'

'Each dimension will then play into the other, as dream-world and intoxication merge and begin to speak each other’s language, beauty or the Apollonian rescuing the Dionysian from pure amorphousness, and the Dionysian redeeming the Apollonian from the dead-end of sheer vacuous form. Tragedy is Dionysian impulse discharging itself in Apollonian imagery'.

Sweet Violence: The Idea of the Tragic by Terry Eagleton

The Artist's Joke, edited by Jennifer Higgie

The Artist's Joke, edited by Jennifer Higgie is one of a series documenting major themes and ideas in contemporary art, its well funny, its a good laugh, well for art theory it is.

Favourite quote:

'Goofing-off requires developing a fine-tuned sense of what it means to pause long enough and distance oneself far enough from worldly objects and events to recognise their illusory dimension and thereby reinvest the world with wonder. In order to really goof-off well, the instrumental sense of purpose deeply ingrained in Western ego and epistemology must be abandoned.'

New Video Work - Slow Clap (Scorn 1) and Slow Clap (Scorn 2)

Slow Clap (Scorn 1) and Slow Clap (Scorn 2) works with the idea of repetition and the absurd, to applaud the viewer for watching the piece becomes the audience and the audience the performer. To slow clap is a critical act of disdain but the nature of this slow clap has an immensity of its own.


Dancing in the Streets: A History of Collective Joy By Barbara Ehrenreich

This book is excellent I recommend it to any one who wishes to know what has gone wrong with our society in the last four hundred years, its an amazing insight!


I Saw A Dream - New Video

Many Bollywood narratives are about the ups and downs of love and sentimentalism and longing play intricate parts in these stories.

Silsilia's plot is about true love winning through adversity and chance this song in particular talks about a chain of events and true love being the purpose of these events.

The disruption to the narrative caused by this mal function of the technology is the birth of the tragic.

The end of this narrative and illusion and entering into the space of the now and dis illusion.

This moment is a break, a space normally determined as a fail, upset or mistake, but really this is only a fail in this illusion, a moment of clarity to contemplate 'reality'.

This disruption happens to be beautiful.
