Isomalt (sugar) and dye, 2015

:What of Art?
:It is a malady.
:An Illusion.
:The fashionable substitute for Belief.
:You are a skeptic.
:Never! Skepticism is the beginning of Faith.
:What are you?
:To define is to limit.

:Give me a clue.

:Threads snap. You would lose your way in the labyrinth.

Oscar Wilde, Picture of Dorian Grey

Rafael Vigilantics / Lonely Planets

The role of the artist is to be that of a musical tarot deck. 
Thru sound we should offer reflection.
Thru words we should become the opportunity to dive deep into the psyche,
To transform that which overwhelms into that which can be sung.
To cry out in harmony the praise of the evils that rack us and the heavens that won't admit our trespasses.
Thru sound we hack into the operating system of the fabric of the universe. 
We drive fast and loose into the night sky. 
We tear hearts apart and readjust their course.
We make maps out of barking dogs. 
With nothing but a truly guttural growl, a man may become a great beast.
With no more than a whimper he may become like a child or a field-mouse. 
Our words may carry us on the backs of history
Shuffle around our feet like the reputation of cockroaches. 
When we sing we pray twice,
For we bring forth the hell inside and offer it up to the light for examination. 
A lonely planet. 
A single word
Long were we gone.
Never quite knowing how long we were here. 
And his horse. 

Rafael Vigilantics (Taos, New Mexico 1981), lives and works in Portland, Oregon.

Martin Cacic / The Beer Drinkers


A tragic unhappy hour again. The beer drinkers sit at their stools, worry and lookout about the uncommon sense. For the citizens everywhere of the world, have the same weary questions that have been gnawing at and driving us all “batty” since the earliest time, since following us out from the man cave… or from mom’s basement?  Where can I drink? Where can I smoke? Where and who can I fuck? And who can afford it?


Martin Cacic (1979, Sacramento, CA) is a Brooklyn based artist.  


Franck Lesbros/ Rabbit Rabbit !

Yo ! 
Is that ok ?

The small video is called " Rabbit Rabbit !", 2016
I made that with a friend because he has that costume, and it gave me a start for a longer video to come.

Giulio Peirè / It is Going to be a Very Cold and Long Winter


"...what we call evil in this world, moral as well as natural, is the grand principle that makes us sociable creatures, the soild basis, the life and support of all trades and employments without exception: that there we must look for the true origin of all arts and sciences, and that the moment evil ceases, the society must be spoiled, if not totally dissolved”.

(Bernard de Mandeville, The Fable of the Bees, V ed. pag. 428 London 1728)
