hell

is remembering fondly, everything horrible in your life, and reflected through a looking glass darkly. Or the prescription glasses' abject mundanity. A search for wisdom in the garbage of social masturbation
Dr. Benway then applied a large glob of vaseline to the computer screens' anus.
"why? you think you're going to get your fingers in it? the computer is a flat screen. It's only two inches deep."
Dr. Benway,"No, the screen is not blurry enough to read yet. Notice how all the letters are far to sharp and defined. They are harsh simulacra far removed from the vague flowing subjectivity of spoken language."
"Oh,"I then stuck two fingers into the computer screen myself. but only found the other side of my ear canals. The voice of a television commercial ripped my ears apart with vaseline covered clarity.

Performance Art - artnet Magazine

Performance Art - artnet Magazine
unfortunately i just read this. Unfortunate for whoever has to read incoming emails at artnet.
"
hi, I just read PERFORMANCE ART IS A BORE
by Charlie Finch. Did he actually get paid to write that. I'm a BFA Sculpture student at CSULB and I will be graduating in May. Can I have Charlie Finch's job. That is to say if you actually pay him to write that. The article had more drivel in it then the Weekly World News. I think I can do better. Here's my writing http://aronbriggs.blogspot.com/. Also, that video about Christina Pettersson by Nicole Davis, was incredibly good. Tell Davis to keep up the great work, it is much appreciated. "

now i play the waiting game. and with any luck soon i will be making the big bucks at artnet magazine.
Also, that video about Christina Pettersson really is quite nice, but there is no way to put a link to it. so, you will just have to take my word for it. or check out artnet's front page. or just not care because noone is actually reading this. Except of course for the poor schmo at artnet who has to read emails and is currently trying to figure out the quickest way to hunt me down, so as to brutally beat me with a garden hose for wasting precious artnet man hours. Aww dammit I should have asked for Nicole Davis' job as well. You never can be too thorough when job hunting.

didactic 2

What do you mean didactic 2. you never posted didactic 1.... well uhh fuck whatever. anyways more on my attempt to understand the term. I have been informed the term can used as an insult, by implying that an art work is preachy. Or not an insult by describing an art work as instructive.
also i believe it can be used as a way to fill in the gaps in between other words used by art students
(ps.thanks man. you are the man, man. if anyone where the man. yeah)

I'm the Man. Fuck Yeeeahh!!!

I was taking my art history 1945- present midterm today and instead of answering the questions. I was thinking I should probably get a sex change(what i currently look like) and become a white male artist instead, since those were the only type of artists i was being tested on(hopefully or I failed some of those questions) ,so they must be the best.
Help me figure out what famous white male artists look I should go for with my new sex change. Oh by the way, I'm changing my name from Erin to Aron.

a. Jackson Pollock. artist's website http://www.jacksonpollock.com/ He has that marlon Brando brutal charm that lets him look brilliant while hes puking on your shoe
b. julian Schnabel. artist's wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julian_SchnabelHe is getting a little old now but he was totally vogue in the 80's
c. Vincent Van Gogh. artist's website http://www.vangoghgallery.com/hmmm he is fucking crazy. that is good for an artist right?
d. Mathew Barney. artist's website http://www.thomaskinkade.com/Oh wait, why is this guy famous? I'm pretty sure he's just Bjork's arm candy. Then again that doesn't sound to bad.
e. Jeff Koons. artist's website http://www.jeffkoons.com/Jeff didle dee deff. I think he carries a gun. or at least pays someone else to follow him around carrying the gun for him
f. Andy Warhol. artist's website http://www.warholfoundation.org/I'm not sure he even counts as white male artist. or if he counts as human at all. I think he may have been reptilian.


Shit, not only are all these guys super famous white male artists, but every single one of them works out of New York. Now I'm gonna have to move across country as well as change my sex and race just to become a super famous artist. I guess it could be worse. At least I'm not a philosophy major.

a study on decay and rauschenberg

does the goat have goat eyes?
yes it does sorta
http://www.smith.edu/libraries/images/research/libguides/artstor_goat_crp.jpg
I love investigating Rauschenberg's art visually, but you can't discuss a work like this without talking about decay. The newspaper and nonsense Rauschenberg collages onto his works continually decay, even the rubber will rot away slowly. His work is no longer about breaking the boundaries of painting, his works are now about age and rot. Who knows what this work looked like fresh, but it has been out of the fridge for a long time now. Those of us using non archival materials need to embrace this. Bring on the rot and the dust and let the work exist happily waiting to disintegrate in to the void...
No, im an idiot. This whole thought is stupid. Decay is not decay, fuck archival. im going mc donalds that's how you fucking do art

how to make art



Originally uploaded by Death as it shook you
so i get myself drunk, drinking store brand vodka in the middle of the night so i can take a plaster bandage mold of my crotch. i have to wear two layers of tighty whitey underwear for this but i usually wear boxers, and this is a pretty odd feeling, double bagging it. i set the garage up for everything and i shut the garage door.
shaving off my body hair would have been a logical step but instead i cover my entire waist, ass, upper legs, and stomach with a good thick layer of baby fresh scented vaseline. Then i spray a good healthy coat of shellac over the underwear. Nothing more fun then drunken ass shellacing.
the water bowl for the plaster bandage is starting to cool off but there's no way in hell im going back outside wearing nothing more then a freshly shinned double thick pair of underwear. instead i take a quick drink of vodka and get to work plastering my crotch.
At about two thirds of the way through i realize i hadn't cut out enough plaster bandage, Luckily i left the scissors and the rest of the plaster bandage on the other side of the garage. This required me to very very very slowly walk across the garage using the kinda steps you can only make when your crotch is plastered to your left leg by a plaster shell that wraps around to half an ass cheek.
I finished the rest of the work with no problems other then a little cold water soaking on to my crotch. The mold solidified, i cut my top layer of underwear off, and i ripped the mold and a little bit of hair off my body. I add several layers of polyester resin with fiberglass and now i have made art. it's that simple people now go out and make some yourselves.

feminism in the morning


as i understand the argument:female feminist body artists are described as essentialists for using their female sexuality to make a statement. Claiming their intention was underlined by the same submissive position the female body has held in the history of western art. So a female artist can't show us her tits if she is hot. Unless her intention is that those tits would look great in a forest scene or in front of a sunset. This argument is stupid or more likely my understanding of the argument is stupid.
Seems like everything could be summed up much better like this. "When I see a pretty girl walking down the street I think two things. One part of me wants to take her out and talk to her and be real nice and sweet and treat her right, while the other wonders what her head would look like on a stick.", qouted from american psycho,qouting from ed gein. Let me explain that statement a little. The stick represents feminism

bas jan ader


the second his shoe flies off you know this is way more brilliant then accidentally getting shot in the arm. Obviously i need to copy Joe Deutch here and get myself on top of the sculpture department building and take a face plant into the parking lot. I think the fall might be about the same height as in the video, though getting the shoe to fly off will take a good amount of practice with an activity that probably shouldn't be practiced at all.

dadaism

a quik lesson on Dadaism

Dada or Dadaism is a cultural movement that began in Z├╝rich, Switzerland, during World War I and peaked from 1916 to 1922.[1] The movement primarily involved visual arts, literature—poetry, art manifestoes, art theory—theatre, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti-war politics through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works. Its purpose was to ridicule what its participants considered to be the meaninglessness of the mo.... or whatever the video explains it way better then wikipedia

Dubuffet


poo
leave it to the french to re purpose something german and call it L'Art Brut. personally i see the whole deal as shoving a load of shit down your throat. first off i haven't read 'Artistry of the Mentally Ill' so i can't critique where he claims influence but i know what i see and this is German Expressionism. Or really German Post Expressionism if you want to be a real ass about it, no seriously i love Dubuffet's work but what i love even more is German Expressionism and i don't need it conceptualized into french hogwash. If Dubufette had really wanted to create true L'Art Brut he would have put himself out there reached for those sweet sweet mountains of madness instead of just collecting the scribbles of those who reached much higher peaks.

the point i was trying to make, was that subjectivity, although the key to making art, is often the reason art works lose their meaning through analysis, objectivity on the other hand becomes the seductive way of making art for the intellectuals, but seduction comes along with sin and the holyy fucking shit its a goddamn zombie get down ahhhhahaj fdk dkl

what does Yayoi Kasuma have to do with pbr, you ask. i dont fucking know. because what the fuck was the name of that japanese obsessive art.. artist who only sculpted ears. i cannot find any reference to him. wikipedia is total shit useless when it comes to japanese art. wikipedia you racist piece of shit. god fucking dammit his ears where so awesome and insane. way more intense then Kasuma's infinity net.
and muchosucko your even more fucking useless when it comes to ears. you give me bears, fucking bears. really bears. i get it you put a b infront of my e but really... bears. Bears probably have even less to do with pbr the Yayoi Kasuma i cant fucking use bears god dammit.

worried about the future

first things first. i need to get pregnant. then worry about my boyfriend. then just blank out for a while. then realize i may have just seriously fucked college up for myself. which means i guess i have no future. but thats ok because im in the future. a future where not only im pregnant but it has also spread pregnancy to my girlfriend like a virus. which makes me worry about you. i really dont want you getting sick with my virus baby in you too. plus what if i have aids or hiv. oh god no fuck i better look up some good quotes. shit what if my mom read this.

are you also alone along with the rest of us


battling my html seriously got to wrangle that bastard down. though sometimes when im fighting monster i notice a need to be careful not to become a monster as well. plus i noticed that when you look down into the html. the html looks back into you. and then script error- cant post-your an idiot- do you even know what your doing- dave. im afraid i cant do that- or can i

i know who im marrying in the afterlife










http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ana_Mendieta



hopefully she will still except me even though satan will have transmogrified me into a two hundred foot apocalypse cow made of colorful plastic badgers as my eternal punishment. ha punishment. little does satan know. badger sperm is where unicorn fur comes from.

fuck. Ana really is the best isn't she. i think the only logical thing to do is all us other artist should all just agree to kill our selves because she wins dammit

come to think of it, if the singularity ever shows up then i guess i can always try to sample some of her dna off of whatever works of hers are saved at museums and then clone her. though i will need to find someone to raise her to adult hood because i aint gonna raise my own wife from a baby. that just brings a few to many issues that i dont need to start my marriage off with, along with the fact that her previous marriage did not work out so well. hmmmm maybe i should have set this post to private.
