Mmmm....wine. My roomate and best-friend JOSH has taken an interest into the etiquette of proper wine tasting/indulging. There's a lot to know about wine. Everything is multi-tangent in this world. (Ed: Daniel is pretty drunk off Cabernet right now, so just relax)
It seems as though our world and human consiousness is being consumed by the nature of in-out, 1's and 0's, digital processing. For the most part, this tactic works wonderfully. Yet it still seems that it cannot be wholly reduced to such abstraction, that every indiviual component, no matter how far you break it down, still maintains a sort of fractal-esqe nature. I take comfort in this ideal, however bland and regular it may seem.
I've been thinking of chemicals lately. I've read a little out of this book my dad gave me about the history of color. In that book, it explores the medieval techniques of achieving color and paint substance and it very much is a chemical process, thus pushing the 'artist' to the level of 'chemist.' Okay, whatever.
My point here is that I think the future of artistic expansion is chemical interaction. I think the artist of the future will use the medium of chemical influence to make his/her point known, through a medium likened to taking a drug. This chemical substance would be created by the artist and would perform results to the artists' liking, to create an effect of somesort that would express what the artist means to convey. And like all art, this chemical would have different effects on everyone who encounters it.
Reviewing tendencies of the 20th century, primarily conceptual art, this concept doesn't seem far-fetched to me.
What I like best about this idea is that the artist becomes a sort of drug-manufacturing mechanism that can't be caught 'cause the drug itself is the art, plus the drug will, ideally, be original in form.
I don't really know how exactly how it'd be done.
Let us not forget that we are on the brink of a new step in human evolution. Nano-eloctronics, Molectronics, all that shit. The idea that you can organically manifest memory storage that supercedes all known processing powers that we have as to date. That's increadible.
My opinion is that what is happening now politcally w/ America or whatever is not for instant gratification, but for future development. The administration isn't looking to solve an immediate solution; they're looking to stake their claim to the up-coming dawn of humanity. Shit's gonna change drastically, and they're setting up their bases, getting ready to take hold of that shit.
Genome shit. Hey, check out Hewlitt-Packart...they've actually been innovating nano-electronics since the get-go. Them and IBM. just like General Electrics manufacturing warheads for the government.
Let me get emotional for a second:
I would love to have someone to hold right now.
That is all. Peace the fuck out.
The sunshine is beautiful.
