Bunk Beds in Every House-Activities must go on.

"But can't this eclecticism, this banalizing and consuming eclecticism that preaches cynical indifference toward history and erases the political implications of the avant-gardes, be contrasted with something other than Greenberg's Darwinian vision, or a purely historicizing vision of art? The key to this dilemma is in establishing processes and practices that allow us to pass from a consumer culture to a culture of activity, from a passiveness toward available signs to practices of accountability. Every individual, and particularly every artist, since he or she evolves among signs, must take responsibility for forms and their social functioning: the emergence of a "civic consumption," a collective awareness of inhuman working conditions in the production of athletic shoes, for example, or the ecological ravages occasioned by various sorts of industrial activity is each an integral part of this notion of accountability. Boycotts, detournement, and piracy belong to this culture of activity."-NICOLAS BOURRIAUDPOSTPRODUCTIONCULTURE AS SCREENPLAY: HOW ART REPROGRAMS THE WORLD Thank you Patrick.

Telchines

Cronus castrated his dad Uranus. Cronus threw his pops genitals into the sea and Aphrodite was born of the seafoam. From those castrated genitals blood droplets that hit the earth Giants and wood nymphs of the ash tree and furies Erinyes. This myth feels related to the Hebrew letter
ayin. From one into two...one force two options depending on what element the force is nurtured in. This mythology also brings to mind the Native American story of the two wolves light and dark and the dominate wolf being the one you feed.

Catrina and funnel cakes of change.

I have just returned from Mexico City. I was doing personal research on a crazy piece of jewelry I saw in a shop window five blocks from the Aztec center of the world(Templo Mayor). I began to make food and ritual connections with not only contemporary Mexican but older Aztec traditions. The pendant was a depiction of Santa Muerte. Only the Santa Muerte I saw carried an AK-47 instead of a scythe. My research led me to candy skulls or alfeñique.  I also read where in pre-colonial times the aztecs made figurines with amaranth for their altars. In general the day of the dead rituals feel like an open grimace to the false pride that accompanies materialist culture. The artist Posada's depiction of pre-Mexican revolutionary high society couture with "La Calavera Catrina" really drives this point home for me.

This is a sculpture I did of a piggy figure with an empty belly.
