“Gliding through paper like a ghost
I leave a dark imprint
Wherever I am told to.
Black, the color of my marking
Beauty, what I leave behind
Words flowing like a black mane
Against the wind of change
Time, my prime rival
Constantly working against me
Ultimately and indubitably
Running out, fading
To be tossed away
For another to take my place
The endless cycle of a life,
A pen’s life.”
Por vezes basta um grito. Um forte e bem intencionado grito na parte mais ‘interior’ do Ser. Despertem-se emoções, incentive-se a motivação, busquem-se sentidos, faça-se algo… Interajam com as energias. Por vezes basta uma simples acção para compreendermos a beleza da simetria entre complexidade e simplicidade, na vida. Por vezes basta um pequeno momento para se vislumbrar aquilo que palavras ou gestos não conseguem descrever. O movimento descreve a pureza da criação. A mudança é infinita e perspicaz… O grito acompanha.
Anytime stands for the perfect timing for whatever is about to happen.
Sampling plays with different perceptions of time. Sampling allows people to replay their own memories of the sounds and situations of their lives. Who controls the environment you grew up in? Who controls the situation with which you engage? At the end of the day, it’s all about reprocessing the world around you, and this will happen no matter how hard entertainment conglomerates and an older generation of artists tries to control these processes. We’re in a delirium of saturation. We’re never going to remember anything exactly the way it happened. Memories become ever more fragmented and subjective. Do you want to have a bored delirium or a more exciting one?

E se um dia, ao caminhar por uma qualquer rua, alguém te parasse e abordasse com a seguinte frase: “Hey, eu sou a tua alma gémea. Eu sei disso.”, acreditarias? Pode parecer absurdo, pode apresentar-se como improvável, mas é uma situação perfeitamente plausível. Teremos nós maneira de duvidar, ou até mesmo de provar o contrário, sem recorrer à intuição, à consciência ou ao sentimento?
“The phenomenon of the encounter is momentary… In discontinuous, momentary flashes of light, it liberates human beings from the one-sidedness and seclusion of the ego, if only for a moment. Unlike the human will, which always desires to define things and give them meaning or a place in history, the state of the world unto itself always teaches us that things are uncertain and indefinite.”
“If a bell is struck, the sound reverberates into the distance. Similarly, if a point filled with mental energy is painted on a canvas (or a wall), it sends vibrations into the surrounding unpainted space… Yohaku [resonant space] transcends objects and words, leading people to silence and causing them to breathe infinity.”
“Expressive action begins with sensing a rupture in existence. The desire to eliminate this gap and become fused with existence itself becomes the will to create art.”
“All things in the universe start from a point and return to a point. One point calls up a new point, and extends into a line. Everything is a scene of gathering and dispersal of points and lines. Existence is a point and life is a line, so I am also a point and a line.”
“The term ‘vector’ comes from geometry and refers to a line of fixed length and direction but no fixed position. Consider the way ideas move through our minds and bodies. There is no fixed position. There’s only the improvisational nature of recall. Thought vector: the relationship between a geometry and a geography of information. Sound vector: think lines of flight in the digital now. Vector of a sound in motion: wave propagation and particles of thought. The mean machine of how we perceive language floats across the scenario, its flight is of fixed maximum length, but potentially in any direction. This is the freestyle. A vector has a fixed property and an indeterminate property. One could say length is fixed but axis is not. Strictly speaking, that’s a vector. But by extension, one could think more abstractly of a vector as a relation between a determinate and an indeterminate property. The virtual dimension to any vector is the range of possible movements of which it is capable. This is the wildstyle. Check the flow. ”
