Jelly and Sugar

03/14/04 to 04/16/04
Madrid, Spain

The work represents a new creature with an independent life.  On the scaffolding—a spinal column suggesting the life we live today—is cast the flexible material jelly.  The unpredictable but joy-bringing substance projects a life comprised of a progressive spirit, an efficient will and independent morals.  As with any new form there arise new values.  The form of new energy enters the competition of survival among material objects.  Along with other existing objects the species has arrived in a chain of Darwinian selection, chosen for this moment and providing hope for this time.  It passes its genetic blueprint to its progeny, and through competition with other art works is part of a process that results in cultural peaks.
 Pleonastic art feeds itself from plentitude and the material goods of life.  It eats from abundance and is driven by greed: greed for sweets.  Sugar is a time bomb.  The time bomb is ticking into the future of our lives, and we are becoming sweeter and sweeter at present.  Out kidneys attempt to exhaust the high level of sugar in our blood to rid our selves of it.  Our bodies are tired; diabetes is inside us.
    Art diabetes enters the body.  Our blood vessels, including the very fine blood vessels in our eyes, receive too much insulin.  If we see bad art, a layer of eye skin is destroyed from the seeing, and our metabolism is at once damaged; the metabolism fails in the pepsis of heavy art; a poor circulation degenerates our minds in this recording of art with no philosophic basis.  Further consideration of this abundance art in fact disturbs the sexuality.
