We were talking-about the love that's gone so cold and the people,
Who gain the world and lose their soul-
They don't know-they can't see-are you one of them?
When you've seen beyond yourself-then you may find, peace of mind,
Is waiting there-
And the time will come when you see
we're all one, and life flows on within you and without you.

SleepAwake: i agree completely..to the second half of this....
but my question is why these particular/specific value systems...like what historical events brought us here...i'm not an essentialist/naturalist so i aim to understand why these dynamics came to being...
like on a less loaded subject..why pink for women and blue for boys...im sure we can agree this is socially constructed and not natural..i'm interested in understanding the history and thus being able to understand the construction better...to understand why it is the way it is...how it functions historically and presently...how to change/not change it...really curious about the production of "truth"..
im an artist my whole life is just about trying to subvert perception...and perception is reality... so im trying to figure out shared realities/agreed upon realities/subjective realities...as much as possible.
Kelticguy: We can agree that naturalism doesnt equate to truth, or to truth vaue philosophically or to 'what ought to be'. Nonetheless, it is not the case that the 'natural' has no effect on reality. The fact that a man is physically more powerful than a woman in a given situation certainly matters.And so it goes for many natural inequalities, it just doesnt follow that they map straight into our brain, or that they are not read through multiply overlapping cultural filters or even the extreme foucauldian case, the way in which they are served up culturally is itself an entire fabrication.That conversation is still on going and I tread a line between nature and culture rather than jumping into the deep water of either side of the river.In terms of understanding it historically, that is a worthy goal, but like with anything, the assumptions and perspective involved will affect what is 'revealed'
Kelticguy: Given that Althusser took a lot of his ideas from Lacan, I thought this might interest you, warning it is pretty vicious: http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/159376.article

SleepAwake: no im using like..either thick mylar, or thin plexie...and styrofoam and fabric and paper mache mostly...im an artist i can turn anything into anything...not too mention i collect art supplies (hoarder) so have years and years worth of styrofoam blocks and packaging of every size, weird fabrics, wires, sculpty, craft shit, cardboard, etc..it will probably be cheaper than it is for me to build a canvas.
SleepAwake: why do people on here say they 25-30 on their profile and confirm that in conversation when their pictures are clearly that of someone in their late 40s? Who are you trying to fool? Why even put pictures? if you are on here to lie about your age (or who you are in any way) just put fake pictures up like everyone else? (or no pictures)

Sandwichmakingsexkit: I love what you are doing here. I would like to see you also explore where you think the art experience may reach in the future and how that future may reflect social consequences or benefits to this evolution in art.
This is one of the most beautiful videos i have ever seen. I know its long but its worth every second.
