The Parade


“I find your work, The Parade very impressive from a purely artistic standpoint. Furthermore, I find it a real merit to counteract the tendencies toward war through the medium of art. Nothing can equal the psychological effect of real art-neither factual description nor intellectual discussion. It had often been said that art should not be used to serve any political or otherwise practical goals. But I could never agree with this point of view. It is true that it is utterly wrong and disgusting if some direction of thought and expression is forced upon the artist from outside. But strong emotional tendencies of the artist himself have often given birth to truly great works of art. One has only to think of Gulliver’s Travels and Daumier’s immortal drawings directed against the corruption in French politics of his time. Our time needs you and your work.”     —Albert Einstein

Trail

This series, interconnected and interrelated, proceeds in no specific order. Nor is there a "right side" to any one panel. Thus two panels together would have 16 possibilities, three 64, and on to infinite possible combinations. Is this what complexity and chaos are about?

In this particular series dice were rolled to determine both the orientation and the order of the panels.

Walker Evans' Manhattan, Summer 1938

These photos, less famous than the subway shots that became Many Are Called, but nearly as impressive, were taken in the Summer of 1938 on 61st Street between 1st and 3rd Aves by Evans for the WPA.

Each panel in this series, rather than rectangle, is four-square (40"). This series, interconnected and interrelated, may proceed however in no specific order. Nor is there a "right side" to any one panel. Each individual panel possess four distinct possibilities. Two panels together would have 16 possibilities, and on to possibly infinite possible combinations. Infinite possibilities - is this what "complexity" and "chaos" is about?

In this particular series dice were rolled to determine both the orientation and the order of the panels.

These drawings were done by an artist under the influence of LSD -- part of a test conducted by the US government during it's dalliance with psychotomimetic drugs in the late 1950's. The artist was given a dose of LSD 25 and free access to an activity box full of crayons and pencils.

Siegel Shoots the RNC Protests

…a very white protest, even as such things go, full of youngsters who spent an awful lot of time cheering wildly for things that happened 20 blocks further north, as applause no longer connected to events snaked its way backward.
