World Factbook Entry

A place for the artistic bohemian; to discuss or display any form of art, whether it be a painting, poem, or urinal.

“I say unto you: one must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. I say unto you: you still have chaos in yourselves. Where is the lightning to lick you with its tongue.”

I desire that your conjectures should not reach beyond your creative will.

...Could you create a god?

Then do not speak to me of any gods.

Ah, alone again.

*recommences throwing peanuts into a cup

Laying on a grassy knoll eyes to the clouds,
The heavens burst with eternal beams of geometric sounds,
So it went, my sense of me, and One it all became,
The greatest lesson ever learned, forgotten, what a shame,
Oh, I do know I saw it, and cherish it too!
It blissfully haunts my psyche with breezy leaves that sooth,
From the frozen pond and icy forest trees licking at the sky,
Dionysus thunders forever in my chest his vision present in my eyes

Covers the sleeping The painters daughter with a bunch of newspapers

Sometimes I sit,
Amidst the brutalist,
Sunshine hits the tips of monoliths,
Falling sand mounds,
Humming car sounds,
My inner child shouts — don’t forget me.

So why did I create Art, anyway? After all, it is small and uninhabited (besides me of course).

The idea is simple: here One can freely express the intimate neurological waltz, away from the mechanical gears of mundane existence that weigh us down, flatten us, and recreate us in accordance to a standardized algorithm.

Here, there is no judgment. There is no master to tell you that you are wrong or insufficient in some way.

Here, One can toss peanuts at the wall, and throw paint at the ants.

We are all One, here at Art, for Art is very much the womb — the shared experience of all — the primordial safe haven, the collective unconscious.

We are all One, for there is no Art without many; Art has no immaculate conception.

Hello Art maker! I have wandered into your region of art! Elmo wanders and he finds! Elmo will wonder off soon but that will be later.

Oh my, a guest!

*Searches frantically for a broom, finds it, and starts sweeping

I’ll tell you what, seldom do we get guests here, but it sure does tickle me to finally have some company.

*Throws an old tablecloth on the table and pulls up two stools

Take a seat Elmo, it’s very nice to meet you! Care for some peanuts? You’re a traveler, huh? I have another good friend who is a traveler. His name is Drifter. God knows where he is now.

So what brings you to Art, friend?

*Shakes the lifeless Elmo doll

Heh, oh well.

*Buries the doll in newspapers

Let the tether rip and send me out to sea
As fire scorches earth
A singing vessel
Glides above the trees

Spring has Sprung!
