Example text

The log isn’t going to spin itself, you know. A spinning log is stable for a while, but not forever. That’s why birling is worth watching. COMMITMENT is the only thing that gets you through the chasm. ” Commitment is risky, because if you fail, it’s on you. On the other hand, without commitment, you will fail, because art unshipped isn’t art. DANCE with fear. Dance with done. Dance with the resistance. Dance with each other. Dance with art. EFFORT isn’t the point, impact is. If you solve the problem in three seconds but have the guts to share it with me, it’s still art.

Your work in art doesn’t come with one. Your art might not work and your career might not work either. If it doesn’t work today, it might not work tomorrow either. But our practice is to persist until it does. XEBEC is a pirate ship. The real kind, not the sort that selfish, evil, violent pretend pirates in Somalia use. Artist pirates steal in order to remix and then give back. YOUTH isn’t a number, it’s an attitude. So many disruptive artists have been youngsters, even the old ones. Art isn’t a genetic or chronological destiny, it’s a choice, open to anyone willing to trade pain in exchange for magic.

REMIX, reuse, respect, recycle, revisit, reclaim, revere, resorb. Art doesn’t repeat itself, but it rhymes. SHAME is the flip side of vulnerability. We avoid opening ourselves to the connection art brings because we fear that we will finally be seen as the fraud that we are. TETHER is the safety cable you refuse to use. Art feels fatal, because art makes us vulnerable. ” UMBRELLAS keep you from getting wet. Why on earth would you use one? Getting wet is the entire point. VULNERABLE is the only way we can feel when we truly share the art we’ve made.
