[a-arts] INTRO / hello
i'd like to introduce myself to the list, my name is emile. i'm studying
media arts this year in melbourne, australia. member of 'blackout'
anarchist youth group. was a member of the now defunct 'neither master
nor slave' affinity group. currently active in video and online mediums.
vid activism, vid art and cultural sabotage.
some recent activities:
'6pm personality' - a video loop played in a subway. dissecting the
sculptured and perfected masks/faces of newsreaders.
'bad communication' - video loop played on monitors in an exhibition.
1998 miss america pageant cut with an australian daytime tv personality,
bert newton. used a short section of bert's face when he wore black
electrical tape over his mouth for a skit. bad communication!
'very ilky' - short video interpretation of a friends zine/poetry books.
one liners on the alienation of everyday life. video picturebook.
my online lifestyles include:
'clean surface' <http://www.cleansurface.org> - a living archive of
insurrectionary graffiti and cultural hooliganism. about 350 images
online. photos of stencils, modified billboards, flyposters,
subvertising, stickers and profiles on local melbourne troublemakers.
'metcop watch' <http://coming.soon/~under_construct> - photo gallery of
the undercover cops that patrol melbourne's transit system. to help
people weed out the cops before they weed you out.
three cheers for this list. i'm interested to hear from people about how
they justify their anarchism and their art. how they link them together.
how they separate them. whether it means making agitational propaganda,
or fairy-floss art lite. i have dillemas and wonder if you out there in
egroups community land do to.

something emailed around nasty offices during lunch break ("heh heh, cock
sucker yuppie poof"). could have something to do with the body not having
a face. no expression or face dehumanises the subject. and as all good
propagandists know, when you dehumanise someone it's much easier to hate
and attack them. the military-entertainment machine does it all the time
- anarchists do it to capitalists. maybe have someone wearing the exact
same clothes in the exact same position but with a face during orgasm
pointed skyward, or an indulgent cum eating grin. licking lips? maybe?
>(I was just sucking cock this morning and was amazedglad to hear it! :)
>once again by how much fun it is)
looking forward to interesting discussions and seeing what us anarchist
cultural workers are making...
