my brain is stretching
i had a 6 hour "narrative drawing" class today taught by jason jagel.
no idea, until i just googled him, how cool his art is:
OK techno savvy peeps- how do i make a link where you can just click on his name?!
in class we read a talk that was transcribed on narration called "the killers" by kathy ackers. i liked it so much i read it again on the BARt ride home.
"Where in this narration lies the real? It lies in the connections between the three sections, in the connections between the 'real' events and the holes, the silences. In the slippages. Slippages into what?"
i leave you with this gem. on why we create...
"The desire to play, to make literary structures that play into and in unknown or unknowable realms, those of chance and death and the lack of language, is the desire to live in a world that is open and dangerous, that is limitless. To play, then, both in structure and in content, is to desire to live in wonder."
