Who went over to the dark side with the evil sheriff Knottingbacon.
Deserting Robin for his rival. Super-Grass.
Selling out to the big Merry Corporate Gangsters
And the evil Merry Sheriff. Selling INN/ INN FACTO.
To live life without security is a life not worth living
Was the motto of these cannibullshitters.
Mary Merry Mad Maude paired off with Merddin (MERLIN)
And became christianized as a male Robin Hood.
Merry Mary Mad England, engrossed with MARY worship.
Mary Hill seems a kind of corporate Mary Hell,
A place where aggressive corporate dogs pull your mind apart,
Displaying jewels, drugs and every kind of must-have product
All the most popular, slick, stylish, hell-brands.
We must jump through the flames naked. No Bags. No product. NO LOGOS?
Operate your own Nervous system better. Write? -- http://acrillic.blogspot.com/2008/05/christmas-maybe-merry-but-mayday-seems.html
pigs in space, pigs in time;
in the Chinese year of the pig: 2007
i put my pen to the Tusk
In soilydarity with lush Miss Piggy,
Hogzilla, Napoleon, old Major and Pigsey,
Wilbur, Professor Strangepork, Picasso, Pigasus
and Porky pig
refers to is innocent of man’s crime.
treated as Swine, in many lands pig denotes
and a BLT
set against the animal kingdom
against the plant kingdom
orchestrated by Farmageddon
what vgetable vendetta?
Rolling in mud, eating shit
and their own litter, once in a while,
parallels modern arms factory
If you can stomach a capitalist pig
don’t snap your wig over cannibalism
pigs act pretty peaceful
they don't make Nukes, deploy troops
most roll with styl, most roast.
Pig as profanity! pig police authority,
pig brother, animal in salts.
The pigs may have the last grunt
as the year of the pig makes its course.

I Talk to the dead pig in the sandwhich: Pigasus for Prez of Swineland 68-69 & 08-09? Pigs in Space, pigs in time; in the Chinese year of the pig in 2007' i'll put my pen to the Tusk of taking all pigs to heaven. Napoleon & Old major pigs, Ministry of Pig: 1984! Porky Pigs limbs litter the swine factory floor, Pig as profanity! Pigs as the Police authority, Pig Brother. Animals used as insulting metaphors for humans but Machines, Poisons and sleeping robots rule us? Ass drunk and/or stubborn as a mule like Pigasus parroting the whole dirty Bay of Swine thing, War pigs crawling Begging mercy for their sins - sang Sabbath, But the four legged HOG that the word PIG refers to is INNOCENT of all crimes leagilly piggily crimes! Just a bristly pink critter! There seems an intricate Telepathic Conspiracy afoot against the animal kingdom. And against the Plant Kingdom and supernature, from a human-plants point of view. Orchestrated by humans or machine/Robot/poisoned humans. V' for Vegetable Vendetta. Other than rolling in mud, eating shit and sometimes their own litter (Which makes an illuminating metaphor for modern Arms factory economic practice, invented by Humans), Pigs seem peaceful and intelligent to me, they don't make Nukes, deploy troops or go to Church. The Hippopota-muses lament for their HOG kind Treated like Swine, the pig has become the Animal word used in Western Civilization that reflects the characteristics Of Authority, Uncleanliness, consumerism and greed. Greedy PIG! A poet in solidarity with the lush Miss Piggy, Hogzilla Napoleon, Old Major and pigsy, Wilbur, Professor Strangepork, Picasso, Pigasus and Porky - i hereby swear to clear these Swine of their stereotypical image quickly and their Stereotypical place in human history and knotted Language as Stupid dumb and dirty cheap fodder; useful at Christmas time with a little gravy tea to dip my TOE into. Dirty grunting Ugly pigs until Served up With a little Sauce. The pigs will have the last grunt as the year of the pig makes its course. --fly acrillic/fly agaric 23. 2007. taken from world piss: the spore of the words.

Thanks to CHU, and to Laura, Pete and Olie and the Jibbering krewe. Each of the songs were played beginning to ending by myself in an improvised order.
A congress of audio components. Captured on canvas, aluminium, wood, steel. Projected by aerosol, ink, and light. A techni-coloured array within mediums, within mediums. And the price is just right. Reverse engineered computer graphics, brought back to the canvas again, audio components running through the work like a postman/sound engineer with sore feet.

THanks TRAV. Good JOb.

If you’re interested in having one made, let me know.
Its possible to create them entirely in Flash too, without the need to download Quicktime, view the high resolution example of the experimental cube.
Life is short, the art long, opportunity fleeting, experiment treacherous, judgment difficult
Nearly my whole creative experience I have been toying around with virtual spaces and thier exploration. Since I began working in CGI (on the ZX Spectrum VU-3D by Psion March 1983) and then into papercrafting and print techniques, I have been on a mission to merge the crafts and techniques and give the user experience more validity, or basically give the onlooker a super-human power, instead of me, the artist.
For years I had considered the cinema 360 shows at the seaside and the stereoscopic applications, with red/blue glasses etc. that are familiar, hi-tec experiences you can have in many venues in various cities around the world. Six years ago I hit upon a technique that would replicate, or reverse engineer, the effect of a Quicktime VR movie or QTVR. QTVR’s construct an all around photographic experience from a single viewpoint, in the centre of a cubic space. My thoughts caught fire when I considered that it could be a real cube, and the centre was the natural, average height of a human eye level.
Click this image to see a small version of the demonstration model that you can print out and make:
For 6 years I believed the object necessary for this centre was to be 12 foot by 12 foot by 12 foot. Just before I had the oppurtunity to practice the concept, it hit me that the natural centre of a cube, a 5 foot 10 inch person, would require an 11 foot 6 inch cube.
Rich Holland was the keen craftsman gifted with the task of building the walls and ceiling on the floor of the Wild Building in Birmingham. It took 3 days and over 2000 screws.
The cube was launched at the preview night on 23rd April. To aid the viewing whilst the door was closed the very able Peter Dixon fitted a pendant 150W lamp 3 foot down from the centre of the ceiling, evenly casting light into the corners of the cube.
I have to admit to getting a little cabin crazy whilst I worked inside the cube. After a while I was unsure what was the floor, and what I could rest on whilst I worked on the ceiling and floor. The sheer scale was a little ambitious in the timescale of the show, only two weeks to view this manifestation of a crazy idea I had. I hope to return to the next phase and hopefully bring it to London. In the meantime, enjoy a little version I made of it that you can view on-screen (Apple Quicktime required)
