Over the Edge: Paperworks Unbound, Part 1

October 25 – November 23, 2014

About Paper: Throughout human history, paper has been essential in countless developments that have transformed the way we think, live, and act. Paper as we know it today originated in China over 2,000 years ago during the Han Dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD). The ancient Silk Road eventually brought paper to the West, where it was quickly adopted and widely used. Since its genesis, paper has been valued for its relatively easy, cost-effective production and functional versatility.
In 1453, Johann Gutenberg invented the first printing press in Germany – an innovation that revolutionized the spread of information and initiated a proliferation of literacy and scholarship. For centuries, printed publications such as books, newspapers, magazines, flyers and pamphlets were the primary sources for information and communication. In recent years, however, these printed publications are becoming obsolete as we increasingly rely on digital platforms. In addition to this paradigm shift, environmental concerns are cited as reason to abandon published print and reduce paper products in favor of a more eco-friendly digital alternative.
Artists who use paper as the primary medium for their artworks defy the mainstream understanding of books as antiquated artifacts and paper as a cheap, disposable commodity. These materials are used as points of departure for infinite creative possibilities achieved through drawing, painting, cutting, carving, printing, folding, sculpting, and assembling art that highlights the universality of paper.

Loosing my Inspiration

Let’s start with memorizations..
There w’re no inquisitions
I ain’t got proper educations.
So, I dealt with all kinds of  f--kin’ confrontations.
All we have done those bullshit-lizations..
Got all personal criticize-equations.
No one can explain that my history notations.
And I can’t go back to the pages of my characterizations…

Did I review all those… f--kin’ civilizations
Did I get all those…f--kin’ popularizations.
Yes, I didn’t get all those. f--kin’ translations,
No, I didn’t get any correction of my punctuations
That’s the end of my inspirations..
Making me sick of all my organically grown up situations… Period !

That’s  f--king result of all my expectations.
Not from I’d read all those fucking major quotations.
There is nothing to believe in my life existence locations/conditions.
Who dat ignoring my conversations?
Go ahead! laugh at me with your satisfaction’s.
