THIS IS A WASTE BAG - some reflections on artistic production Sitting on the floor of my studio is a waste bag which someone recently mistook for a small sculptural object with a carefully made charcoal drawing inserted into it. The deviding line between "art" and "garbage" is seemingly dissolved to the outsider, at least in spaces (like an artists studio) where an object could be either/or. There is materiality and content in both. Even for the artist this line can be blurry: I have come to think of my artistic production (its objects) as disposed of tools, waste products even, in a process of inquiry into the complexities and uncertainties in human matters. If a finished piece of work/waste, (which is dead if it has no purpose) puzzles a viewer/buyer/consumer, it will instantly be resurrected as a repurposed tool (art) for inquiry in an autonomous quest for understanding, which though related to mine, is completely separated. The transaction of property (art for money/money for art) then becomes a transaction of QA. #artstudies #fridasandström #andreaphillips #walterbenjamin #marx #feuerbach #artasproperty #materialism #artandsustainability #artmustalsobetendedto

#Departure Q to Messiah @LouisFarrakhan: Do you see a day when Whites will be allowed to join the Black Muslims? (#NationofIslam) Messiah Minister Louis Farrakhan answers "YES. YES. You know, I Must say this. And some of my own Brothers may be shocked at this. But you asked me a question and I have to answer you TRUTHFULLY. If you look at the message of #Jesus, it started first very narrowly among the Lost sheep. And Jesus was told "Go ye not in the way of the Samaritans or in the way of the Gentiles; but to to Lost Sheep." But then at a CERTAIN POINT he said "Go ye into ALL the world. To EVERY Nation, Kindred, and tongue. " IF you will LOOK at the Message of The Honorable #ElijahMuhammad it was FIRST directed to Black people because we were in the WORST condition. But not only are we lost, the WHOLE HUMAN FAMILY is LOST. And therefore the Message HAS to EVOLVE. And WE Have to EVOLVE. And I'll close that point by saying IN #Christ there is no Greek nor Jew, no bond nor free, no male nor female.

The environmental crisis we face has many different aspects. One that has been very much in the news is what is happening to our stuff? What is the state of recycling? We're in a season of consumption and this is a good time to think about what will happen to it (and the packaging). "Your average thrift store in the United States only sells about one third of the stuff that ends up on its shelves," Adam Minter says. He's the author of "Secondhand", and spoke directly and expertly to Terry Gross' questions about the value of recycling. Read the full article on NPR.org #consciousconsumerism

YOU ARE NOT A TREE, MOVE! A job with no future, a relationship that brings you down, posessions that are more a burden than an asset, places that stop you from your progress, responsibilities that are not really yours to fulfill, habits that are slowly deteriorating your health. It is time you reassess your priorities and MOVE! One of the greatest lessons of Sacred Geometry and the teachings of energy is that we attract our own reality. So if we don’t shift our perspective, change our reality and move towards our goals, then the universe will bring us more relationships, projects and feelings where we are stuck. When you sign up for Energy Coaching with me, you are saying YES to moving onward and forward. Through cathartic exercises, cleansing and recalibrating your energy field, I hold space for you to connect with your highest self and grow. DM me if you are ready to take the biggest step in your life to be unstuck.

I love this quote....it's sad but very true. People get bitter and jealous if others have a little more or they doing a little better then what they are. At some point of my life I was that person.Jealous of other women's wardrobes,shoe and handbag collection until I realised that materialism and competition is the biggest evil in this world. I can fit all my possessions in 1 big suitcase,and I'm fine with that.I don't care,that I dont own a 2k Chanel handbag(I'd rather use that money for a college fund to 1 of my 3 children). It's not the things you have,its the things you see and experience and the family that's around you that is worth more then any fast car,any designer label any mansion,it is simply irreplaceable! . . . #Quote #SelfLove #SelfHealing #MaterialismSucks #materialism #quotesdaily #quotestagram #quotes #quotestoliveby #quoteoftheday #quotesaboutlife #quote

Radical Takes on Happiness I wonder if the results of “happiness” studies might surprise you? Levels of happiness reported in different cultures across the world reveal an inverse relationship between wealth and happiness. It seems that material success makes us miserable. The affluent Western world reports the lowest levels of happiness. Conversely, it is in the poorest countries that we find the happiest people. Could it be because they might be materially ‘poor’ but spiritually rich? Could it be that, because they are encouraged to go within, to meditate, that they enjoy a much deeper connection to nature, to one another and to their higher, holy Self? We in the West think we’re so clever but our worship of the intellect has come at a great cost. Our obsession with thinking, together with the lure of the outside world and its gaudy displays and temptations, have obliterated the Light of our being. We are the ones who are ignorant. We have swapped the awareness of this Light for empty promises, momentary pleasures that come and go. You see, everything that comes, goes. Think about it. No relationship, no achievement, no substance, no high of any kind can possibly provide deep peace or lasting happiness. All of these things are intrinsically temporary. We have lost sight of that spirit within us that does not change, is not temporary, was never born and will never die. All of our attention is pulled out to a world shrieking “consume, compete, emulate these ludicrous body shapes and false body parts, feel like crap about yourself if you don’t measure up to them”. No wonder rates of suicide, anxiety and depression are going through the roof. Our souls are sick for want of nourishment. What a price to pay for passing pleasures.

Allt detta filosoferande ledde till det stoff som ett antal -ologier kom att vila på. Flera påverkade i sin tur pedagogikens etablering som vetenskaplig disciplin. En -ologi värd att fundera vidare på är den som kallas ontologi (läran om den sanna verkligheten). Återigen - många frågor att fundera över: Vad finns i verkligheten? Är det allt som är bevisat, beprövat? Hur är det då med det upplevda? Går det att lita på människans erfarenheter och sinnen? Ontologi influerar i sin tur en rad -ismer såsom idealism, existensialism men även en metafysik disciplin som antikens atomlära (materialismen). #julkalender_didacticum2019 #liu_didacticum #filosofi #ontologi #idealism #existensialism #metafysik #materialism #liu Källor: NE.se, Wikipedia, Psykologiguiden (Egidius)

We're moving in a couple of weeks, and as always, I started the packing process with the most precious cargo - our boot collection! It has grown since last time 😅 ⚜️ Taking them all out at once is always an experience. On the other hand this is plain awesome. The tower of boxes is almost as tall as me 😍 but on the other hand the tower is almost as tall as me 😵 mixed feelings of pride, joy and materialism. ⚜️ Approximately half are mine and half my wife's and a couple I've acquired with the intent to sell forward. ⚜️ Would you like to see what's in the boxes? #boots #bootfetish #bootstagram #instaboots #bootcollector #bootcollection #bootlover #bootlife #bootlifestyle #fetishlifestyle #fetishproblems #kinkyproblems #moving #packing #reflection #materialism #pride #joy

Materialistic things bring forth some pleasurable moments, but never a sample of happiness. I struggle being an artist sometimes because it is a constant duality between materialism and spirituality. One must take the wheel, the other sits shot gun or tied up in the trunk. Moderation and balance are key but we've become intoxicated with stacks of money. What about the hungry? What about the love? What about the time that Mac died from doin drugs? It's sad if you think about when someone's heart stops, like the way the tables started turning in Hip Hop. When it began, it was all about what you did with your struggle and on the come up, if you could remain patient and humble. Now, all I see is fake flexing and talking of luxury. Sometimes I wonder if the game is too much for me. #soul #materialism #yin #yang #balance #moderation #Dyligent #motivationalrapper #checkmeout #linkinbio #itunes #spotify #youtube #googleplay #amazonmusic #deezer #tidal #soundcloud #beats #producers #rappers #support #localmusic #undergroundartists #weouthere #phoenix #arizona #michigan #AllLove #StayDyligent

Can’t believe this semester is almost over! So many ideas and so little time! ____________________ Here is my little archive of the things I’ve been working on these past months. _____________________ Whilst I feel more sure of who I am as an artist this time round, the questioning has come more in if my work is doing what I want it to do. Is it working as a concept. This is something I have been wrestling with a lot. I’m really concerned with societal constructs and political systems, and most importantly democracy. I like to think of the pot as being representative of the people. 🏺I’m also really interested in the hierarchy of materials, inspired by the Arte Povera movement that I discovered on my recent trip to Paris! 🇫🇷 #art #fineart #contemporaryart #conceptualism #artepovera #undergrad #artist #researchaspractice #practiceasresearch #exploration #questioning #experimentation #bsad #political #sculpture #materialism

🌲Grow🌲 Another thought about this one. I woke early this morning to practice yoga and plan the day ahead. I allowed myself to gently push a little harder than usual, manifesting 🌲Strength🌲(swipe to see image 2 and my guidebook notes). Then, as the day went on, I realised I needed it. Getting your work done while caring for a little sick girl, then finding out your mum’s house in Spain has been burgled makes for...a weird day. It’s fine though. She’s here with us, and has decided not to worry about it. We don’t think anything much was taken. She used to have a little jewellery, but that was stolen shortly after my dad died in 2008, so whoever did it this time was out of luck. Sounds like they just made a huge mess. I hope family stuff hasn’t been broken. Still, it’s just stuff right? Sometimes things which trigger memories. It’s fine. We don’t need to be attached to items. Part of the Growth mindset is knowing that the power in within us, not in the things we surround ourself with. #materialism #growthmindset #growthroughwhatyougothrough #strengthening #moodyscapes #darktones #ourmoodydays #wisdomoftheforest #originalpaintings #forestlovers #woodland #darkwoods #treehugger #oldtrees #darkpainting #mistywoods #darkforest #30DaysOfForests #pagan #mistypines #witchforest #forestpainting

Collagegate ⚔️ Thatcherism, technically started in 1979. Through her leadership materialistic individualism was blessed. Anything that made money was justified because she believed that success was down to the self, erasing social issues and inequality. Crushing those who defended workers rights, and turning a blindeye to the riots, she continued to dog-whistle to the National Front, in a determined bid to uphold fear of people who didn't fit her idea of Britishness. Even before her time as leader she was broadcasted in an interview stating that Britain is "swamped by people with a different culture." Racism and xenophobia breathed through the liberal veil she cloaked upon her "wholly new attitude of mind" and people liked it because anything non-Thatcher seemed non-British, and Britishness was supposedly rewarded by promised wealth via a free market. Although FOR being in the EU after the referendum, she spent years building a hostile relationship with Europe via a stiff upper lip. (Sound familiar?) ...The harshness of Thatcher's leadership runs through Blairism to Cameron, May & Johnson. Then and today, Conservatism fails to prove strength and stability without division because it is division that keeps the yellow brick road clear. People understandably demand answers. Individualism and reduced tax for the rich ignored the working lives & socialist successes of the many and failed to create a collective kitty for societies needs. In lifting the false veil away we realise that our ills won't be cured through hope. Brainwashing only goes so far. A poorly constructed society can erode when the majority use their collective strength to challenge the wealth of the few. 40 years later we are presented with our first real chance to make up for the damage of Thatcherism. Privelaged individuals and the notion that they have earnt that wealth is an obstacle to Socialism, however with a growing need for solidarity, Labour stands at the front with the promise that only Socialism can truly liberate the individual. Corbyn - with a legacy in peace, justice and with trade unions... could there be a better leader to say goodbye to Thatcherism? Collectively it is possible. 🗳

To start with, Russia's new middle class is a distinct minority. Prism, a publication of the Jamestown Foundation, quoted, in its August 2001 issue, the Serbian author Milorad Pavic as saying that "the Russian middle class is like a young generation whose fathers suffered a severe defeat in a war: with no feeling of guilt and no victorious fathers to boss them around, the children of defeat see no obstacles before them" But this metaphor is misleading. The Russian middle class is a nascent exception - not an overarching rule. As Akos Rona-Tas, Associate Professor in the Sociology Department at the University of California, San Diego, notes correctly in his paper "Post Communist Transition and the Absent Middle Class in Central East Europe", a middle class that is in the minority is an oxymoron: "In democracies the middle class is the nation proper. The typical member of a national community is a member of the middle class. When democratic governments need a social group they can address, a universal class that carries the overarching, common interest of the country, they appeal to the middle class. This appeal, while it calls on a common interest, also acknowledges that there are conflicting interests within society. The middle class is not everyone, but it is the majority and it represents what everyone else can become" Russia has a long way to go to achieve this ubiquity. Its middle class, far from representing the consensus, reifies the growing abyss between haves and haves not. Its members' conspicuous consumption, mostly of imports, does little to support the local economy. Its political might is self-serving. It has no ethos, or distinct morality, no narrative, or ideology. The Russian middle class is at a Hobbesian and primordial stage.

A thing that is very interesting in Nepal is that no one pays too much attention to how they look like or what they wear. The way we, westerners, judge people based on appearances, too much or too little make-up, too stylish or too simple, too many heels or not enough, etc- here just doesn’t work. Despite their social hierarchy and tens of castes, as long as you are not on the bottom- you cannot even distinguish one caste from another. There is little to not fixation on materialism. Of course a cause is also the fact that you just cannot afford too much- so you only buy necessities, but what a beautiful world it is- to see people express themselves through the little they they have, and most importantly, their personalities and spirit. This makes me think hardly of what do I do for self-expression, and how much are we taught, as westerners, to unconsciously seek others’ validation and approval through our exterior, and physical possessions. From having to read guides on how to go to an interview to be taken seriously into account, to airlines and companies making it mandatory for women to wear heels or make-up (did you also notice how much fuss is around women’s business clothing? Too much color? Too little? Too tight? Wow too much waste?). and I must say, I do miss jewelry, and make-up, and every other thing that helped me become more...”me”. But I do also like having to only use my brain and enthusiasm to be taken seriously. Can’t hope for two months though to take away the Moldovan in me.🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️
