Friday Quote: Banksy

Posted by (PF) at 7:00 ...

“People are taking the piss out of you everyday. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere else. They are on TV making your girlfriend feel inadequate. They have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. They are The Advertisers and they are laughing at you.

You, however, are forbidden to touch them. Trademarks, intellectual property rights and copyright law mean advertisers can say what they like wherever they like with total impunity.

Fuck that. Any advert in a public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It’s yours to take, re-arrange and re-use. You can do whatever you like with it. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head.

You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don’t owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission, don’t even start asking for theirs.”

Friday Quote: Ernst Haas

Posted by (PF) at 7:00 ...

“Bored with obvious reality, I find my fascination in transforming it into a subjective point of view. Without touching my subject I want to come to the moment when, through pure concentration of seeing, the composed picture becomes more made than taken. Without a descriptive caption to justify its existence, it will speak for itself – less descriptive, more creative; less informative, more suggestive; less prose, more poetry.” – Ernst Haas, 1921-1986

“‘We are here is a photographic series that seeks to portray the diversity of people taking part in Marches, Protests and at the recent Occupy Assemblies. This work hopes to give evidence of how people can come together peacefully by focusing on unspectacular yet engaged moments at these gatherings of people.” – Fiona Essex

“These two projects use the camera to represent unique geographical location. In the 1st chapter, Old Regular Mountain, I explore the Appalachian region of the United States. For the second chapter, Don’t Drop the Potato, I spend time in the coastal, prairie, and forested regions of Louisiana.” – Stacy Kranitz

Friday Quote: Kurt Vonnegut

Posted by (PF) at 7:00 ...

“…go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.”

Kurt Vonnegut, 1922 – 2007
