|Has anyone realized that the purpose of the fortune cookie program is to|
defuse project tensions? When did you ever see a cheerful cookie, a
non-cynical, or even an informative cookie?
Perhaps inadvertently, we have a channel for our aggressions. This
still begs the question of whether the cookie releases the pressure or only
serves to blunt the warning signs.
Long live the revolution!
Have a nice day.
|World tensions have, if anything, increased in the quarter century since|
H.G. Wells uttered his glum warning: "There is no more evil thing on
earth than race prejudice, none at all. I write deliberately -- it is
the worst single thing in life now. It justifies and holds together more
baseness, cruelty and abomination than any other sort of error in the world."
-- Sydney Harris
|Hoaars-Faisse Gallery presents:|
An exhibit of works by the artist known only as Pretzel.
The exhibit includes several large conceptual works using non-traditional
media and found objects including old sofa-beds, used mace canisters,
discarded sanitary napkins and parts of freeways. The artist explores
our dehumanization due to high technology and unresponsive governmental
structures in a post-industrial world. She/he (the artist prefers to
remain without gender) strives to create dialogue between viewer and
creator, to aid us in our quest to experience contemporary life with its
inner-city tensions, homelessness, global warming and gender and
class-based stress. The works are arranged to lead us to the essence of
the argument: that the alienation of the person/machine boundary has
sapped the strength of our voices and must be destroyed for society to
exist in a more fundamental sense.
