Tuesday Night Post #3.1



Man has taken from a womb.  Destroying as he creates.  
Stealing as he rapes.
A newer thought of a feed back loop that spreads thin
evenly across a surface
Of a man given a gift which he sees it as that
the structured thought was the first to notice
Repetition makes the group
Consumption closes the loop
In this act in his behavior he climbs
only to end up face down
People seed in their weight
end for them left in a gram of ash

Whereas However- a BONANZA {May 2}

via Maneesh Madahar

we could elaborate on things, specify how we shall move, or even what may happen. certainly there have been times in which the discussions yielded these kinds of particulars….but…you know maybe thats not the communication we should have at this moment. here and now. what is needed, ultimately, is a space for intimacy and connection that begins to push against a possibility. the dynamic potential of a tribe carrying torches deep within bowels of the earth. the cavernous geological womb…watching the fire dance and the luminous rhythm create a shifting choreography with the animals painted on the walls.

this place can also be a bedroom or cinema or a warehouse. they them us we will congregate and gather to help each other thrive. to find ways of becoming a peoples of instantaneous magnitudes blossoming into the infinite impermanence… or , at the very least, we can make something happen that is new and for us. something whose precedent is an elaborate tapestry of interwoven histories extending along fractal meridians into the future and past lives of the selves we always knew we could be…come with me ill follow you.

dancing. summoning sounds. trying to conjure the numinous materiality. bass. gazes and silences.

this event is focused around an extended improvisation between groups and projects. every individual will be given a certain space-time frame in which to perform their personal work. however, this space-time frame will emerge from and merge with a larger collective platform. sights, musics, and costumed forms will be improvising into and out of each other.

constituting the arc are:

Tuesday Night Post #3.0

Select Few,

Art as religion.
Art as Prayer.


Laying on three rocks.
My left foot on the noose.
My right on the skull.
My back on the wood.

My friend the only friend layed below.
A beckon of red hanging from his throat.
Loyal and true he laid on small thorns.

Just another ripe vision of true.
A twisted repulsion to rearrange this off hue.
Each turning shadow replaced by her at once.

Lil witch with power summon defaults.
Make them special for others that are lost.
Take them in kindly, choose them full.

Give them violence, put them down on moss.
Slight adjustments of light are strong enough to confuse. Who follows who, paradox of the muse. 
Set it balance, sphere and cube.

Step into the darkness.
Walk among elders, grab a limb. They swing you distances, as you loosen the leaves.
Failing to see how distances bleed.
Set it balance, puddle of gore and pile of ash.

On a high rise, looking down at her virtue and benevolence, remembers the frost.
Memories of canopy high, bare feet on moss.

Forgetting the chaos, stepping ahead, circuits converging we are all lost.
Set it balanced, flesh and mind.

That hazy air that finds you on an off day, that's where I laid.
A faithful friend he will follow me as far as any liquid end.
With his beacon of love he’ll help me up.
No fear is pending.
Vacuum of light where no one began.

Map of the drive-

There will be a Caravan Saturday morning, but we hope you can arrive at your convenience.

D3C0D3D is itself a ritual in visual and sonic rites in which the experiencer is lead into psychedelic realms through over lapping multi projected video and tonal tides which wash over the consciousness of the participant to allow for multidimensional decoding of subconscious thoughts and universal higher self concepts.
I felt Furst world would be an amazing place to bring in new energies and set the intentions of the year to come. There is also intended interactive elements, games, photobooths, face painting and magic. We are all here to entertain and inspire each other. I intend a performance aspect which involves professional fire swallowers and spinners. These aspects will be safely outside in the sand and should also include a portable aerial pyramid (allegedly) for what promises to offer an enticing and flowing circus environment. I anticipate these are all professional artists who create with purpose and safety is number one. Environmentalism is also paramount, we are fans of the "leave no trace" policy. Safety and cleanliness are the fulcrum by which this event pivots. In all, I want to assure that it will be a fun night where every one can really absorb a fully interactive spectacle while being responsible for their trash. I have a cleaning crew set up and all that we do is portable and makes zero impact on the environment and certainly no impact on the wonderful art installations.
We will arrive saturday afternoon to set up,claim campers or camp sights joshua tree hike after set up, then performances all night and a casual sunday morning breakfast, yoga workshop then lunch and good times. Clean up by sunfall and head off into the sunset on sunday night. Performers will be paid in tips and donations, some free food, beverages, fun and camping areas will be provided, but its encouraged you bring stuff to share as well. Invite any and all conscious people who will respect the lands, but all friends are welcome. There is also a pool and jaquzi so swim wear is advisable. I look forward very much to this event. If you have any concerns or creative ideas please let me know. Food is a potluck Everyone is encouraged to bring some food to share in team building and PLEASE BRING FIREWOOD!
