would you choose to engage?

Untitled-1

Imagine an artwork that is not labelled or contextualized in any way and is not located within a designated art space. It just exists. If we happen to be in its way we become implicated; we become part of an event. To an extent we must respond to this event, we must embrace it or ignore it. To embrace it requires a significant degree of commitment to something with no obvious rewards other than ‘an experience’. If you were to encounter such an artwork, would you choose to engage?

Mysterium 1 – Mayday Mystery

“What then is the good of – what is even the defence for – occupying our hearts with stories of what never happened and entering vicariously into feelings which we should try to avoid having in our own person? Or of fixing our inner eye earnestly on things that can never exist…? The nearest I have yet got to an answer is that we seek an enlargement of our being. We want to be more than ourselves. Each of us by nature sees the whole world from one point of view with a perspective and a selectiveness peculiar to himself… We want to see with other eyes, to imagine with other imaginations, to feel with other hearts, as well as with our own…. We demand windows. Literature as Logos is a series of windows, even doors…” C.S. Lewis

everything starts from an initial mistake

We guess as we read, we create; everything starts from an initial mistake; those that follow, … extraordinary as they may appear to a person who has not begun at the same starting point, are all quite natural. A large part of what we believe to be true with an obstinacy equaled only by our sincerity, springs from an original mistake in our premises.

Female reporter: If you could’ve found out what Rosebud meant, I bet that would’ve explained everything.

Thompson: No, I don’t think so; no. Mr. Kane was a man who got everything he wanted and then lost it. Maybe Rosebud was something he couldn’t get, or something he lost. Anyway, it wouldn’t have explained anything… I don’t think any word can explain a man’s life. No, I guess Rosebud is just a… piece in a jigsaw puzzle… a missing piece.

data

I shall be accused of having assembled lies, yarns, hoaxes, and superstitions. To some degree I think so, myself. To some degree I do not. I offer the data.
