Oblat

Les pieds glacés, j’ouvre les yeux et découvre le corps effondré du monstre. Baigné dans une mare opale, il convulse ses dernières malédictions. Les doigts incrustés de sang figé, les cheveux raz, j’inspire les dernières vapeurs de la drogue qui brule mes poumons et ma gorge. J’expire un nuage de pardons. Mon obsession qui avait recouvert l’entité de ma langue, tapissant d’huile orageuse mes envies, forme une boule au fond de ma gorge que je crache sur le dragon égorgé. J’ai tout siphonné la lumière de la dernière année, diamanté les malheurs et bu les vagues de terreur. J’arrache de mes pouces les dernières loques qui collent à mes os. Flambant nue, les lèvres retroussées, je saute et laisse le grand serpent s’endormir.

Le temps de David Fokos

Using long exposures, ranging from 20 seconds to 60 minutes, I have
worked with the camera’s unique ability to “average time” in order to
examine and understand the mechanisms of human perception and to
reconcile our differing subjective and objective views of the world.

I believe that our sense of experience is built up over time – a
composite of many short-term events. For example, if you meet someone
for the first time, your impression of that person is not a snapshot in
your mind of the first time you saw that person, but rather a portrait
you have assembled from many separate moments. Each time that person
exhibits a new facial expression or hand gesture, you add that to your
impression of who that person is. Your image of that person – how you
feel about that person — is formed over time, rather than upon a single
expression or gesture.

Likewise, I believe that our impression of the world is based upon our
total experience. For example, the ocean has always made me feel calm,
relaxed, and contented. If I were to take an instantaneous snapshot of
the ocean, the photo would include waves with jagged edges, salt spray,
and foam. This type of image does not make me feel calm – it does not
represent how the ocean makes me feel as I stare out over the water. What
I am responding to is the underlying, fundamental form of the ocean, its
vast expansiveness and the strong line of the horizon, both of which are
very stable, calming forms.

With this series of images I have used the camera as a scientific
instrument, the way a biologist might use a microscope or an astronomer a
telescope, to reveal what is felt but often unseen.

David Fokos

Les mots de l’artiste décrivent beaucoup mieux comment je ressent et expérimente ses photos que jamais je ne pourrais le faire. Je pense exactement pareil comme lui et ses photos traduisent mieux que ses propres mots la beauté des éléments.

Je verrais si bien une plage désolée dans mon grand appartement blanc. Si jamais vous cherchez une idée de présent pour mes 23 ans la semaine prochaine… 😉

I used to think I became boring.
But Now I don’t know what I am.
I had cigs, cheap wine and veggies for dinner.
That makes me worthwhile, right?

I am oblivious to certain thing in my life.
Some stuff are independent of me
And I do not know to what extend I…
Control them.

I lay there in bed, drunk on cheap wine
While he is downstairs, gussing up for something primal.
I lay there in bed, a hand on my belly
Drawing circles on my flesh.

I wish I could erase humanity
Except for this feeling of elation
Somethings you can’t explain
But they live on

They live on, no matter how much wine you had.

Christina Hendricks

Je suis en plein dans Mad Men et à toutes les fois que je vois Christina Hendricks a.k.a. Miss Holloway je dis à M.: Cette femme est tellement/incroyablement/voluptueusement belle.

Elle fait la couverture du New York Magazine. MA-GNI-FIQUE.

Crate Digging – don’t do it


Crate digging is used by DJs and collectors to refer to the act of checking records in stores, flea markets, or thrift shops for second hand music on vinyl. It’s extremely boring.

These people will try and find the most obscure or rare records, to either put in their collection, play in their disc jockey set, or to reuse pieces of these records for their own collages or “beats”.

It’s all about the obscurity. The more obscure a record, the less people who will recognize it, and so, less chance you’ll get sued when you steal a nice portion of this record for your own little song. Even when you’re not looking for rarities for the last reason, you’ll be keen on finding rare vinyl to extract admiration from fellow crate diggers. Even when you are not keen on getting admiration from fellow diggers, you’ll be keen on receiving some selfindulgent kick from finding a record somebody else probably hasn’t found before. It’s pathetic.

The stupid thing is, they’re not making any new old records. So these old records are bound to run out.

I wouldn’t want anybody finding a particular old record I wanted to find… erh… Did I mention crate digging is very unhealthy? Actually, I can think of 13 reasons you shouldn’t go crate digging. Crate digging, don’t do it.

Projet personnel de l’artiste Stephan Glerum sur le Crate Digging. Ça me fait penser à certaines personnes de mon entourage… Voici la série de 13 images sur ce sujet:
