Gravity well.

Plaster casts of Hungry 1.
The weight of Hunger, digital manipulation.

I believe its a fact of physics, the more hungry people there are, the more people will be pulled into that grief. Like a gravity well, a black hole of hunger.

Hungry

It is a constant theme in my artwork.

The plaster casts were intended for the kitchen counter back splash for the ‘Hungry Kitchen Exhibit’.

Cheap Gasoline!

 

Gasoline is $1.23 per litre here in Canada, it was the last time I ventured outside into the adrenaline soaked roadways that suffocate my house. I have to walk. Everybody looks angry. Nobody is moving fast enough for anyone else. It is as dangerous as the wilds of Africa, I tell myself. However, the lions are far fewer and further between than the metallic entertainment boxes that whiz around the tarmac like ants on LSD. I have no idea how to give LSD to ants. But I can picture in my mind the ants would look just like you do driving around aimlessly looking for the last deal. There must be sugar here somewhere!

As I don’t drive I have no idea if that price of gasoline is too high for you, or too low. I don’t actually do anything, or go anywhere. But I’ve never heard anyone else say we should pay more. I wonder how cheap we should make it. You know, so you can all have all the toys you ever wanted, in your houses, in every room even, and the car too. If gasoline were 25 cents per litre, just think of how big our cars could be. What is the right price for luxuries. How little do you want to pay for them.

But life is great here in Canada, I can still do this. Although I’m using dollar store art supplies and found pieces of plywood I can still say something. I have a nice place to live, even though I feel I am surrounded by distaste and suspicion, its not their fault, they are oblivious of the world, and I am paranoid. Its a horrible place to look at. But someone glued my eyes open and turned the volume up full blast. You don’t think there is a connection between what we want and what the planet and its people are paying now? Or the 600,000 children under 5 on the verge of dying from starvation.
Or, if your in Canada, 400,000 under 3 year olds, it sounds better for some reason. For some, I think, the price of gasoline will be just right when you don’t hear me anymore. I will be out of your sight.

I wish someone would make a ‘dislike’ button.

Even When We Aren’t Looking

If there were any humanity left in the developed world.

What you should be doing is going to your governments and demanding that they put the price of gas up! To get you into rehab from your LIFESTYLE. You are not entitled to this lifestyle. No one is. It is not your ‘right’.You think you can have paradise while you’re here? Not at this cost. Old women old men children babies, burned alive and chopped to pieces. So you can have cheap gas? Because you need it to drive to work to make more, more, more. More what? Shit? Or you have to have oil to drive your giant 8 cylinder diesel monster truck by yourself to the convenience store to buy shit to eat while you masturbate all over your waterproof 3d monitor. Fuck you!!!! The very least you can do is recognize that its YOUR problem. The west is addicted. Dedicate yourselves to paying enough for gas that people can clean up the disaster you leave behind you in your greedy dash to the future? This is not a race. You keep going this way and there will not be life on this planet. Forget your sci-fi fantasies where humans are better. Stupid, stupid creatures. Not even bacteria will survive from the shit you leave behind you. You should be meekly offering $10 a litre and promising you won’t let your ‘lifestyle’ get out of hand again. Maybe you won’t be beheaded.
