COLLECTIVE VOICE

14 Dec

MICHAEL LOVELAND COLLECTIVE VOICE 2012WE WERE SHOCKED AS WE CIRCULATED THE CIRCUIT THE AMOUNT OF SAMENESS, REPETITION, NOT TO SAY THERE WERENT GREAT WORKS, BUT NOTHING REALLY SCREAMED TRANSCENDENCE.  OUR FAVORITE GALLERIES PRESENTED BETTER WORKS LAST YEAR, LEAVING US UNDERWHELMED. SO HERE IS OUR FAVORITE WORK.  COLLECTIVE VOICE (2012) BY MICHAEL LOVELAND. REPRESENTED BY DIANA LOWENSTEIN FINE ART. THE MIAMI BASED ARTIST SPEAKS TO THE POWER OF THE VOICE IN THE AGE OF SOCIAL MEDIA.  CAPTURING EXACTLY HOW WE FELT ABOUT THE CURRENT ZEITGEIST.  EVERYONES BROADCASTING / NOBODYS REALLY LISTENING.

WE FOUND OURSELVES MORE INVESTED IN THE CONVERSATIONS PASSING THROUGH THE ETHER, WHICH REALLY PERTAINED TO WHAT COMES NEXT?  METAPHYSICAL AND ESOTERIC DISCUSSIONS, PAST/ PRESENT/ FUTURE , THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME. IS IT ALL OPEN ENDED OR IS THERE SOMETHING WRITTEN IN THE STARS?THE ORACLE @ DELPHI (2012) - MATU CRONEY

AS A GENERATION MORE VERSED IN OUR OWN POPULAR CULTURE, THAN THE HISTORIES AND MYTHOLOGIES OF YESTERYEAR, WHO WILL BE OUR PROPHETS? WHO WILL BE DISCOVERED AS OUR DECEIVERS? IF POST-MODERNISM TAUGHT US ANYTHING IS THAT REALITY IS COMPLETELY SUBJECTIVE. ONE MANS TRUTH IS ANOTHER MANS HERESY, AND WE QUICKLY ENTER THE DUALITY OF IT ALL.  IN SEEKING WAYS TO COMPREHEND THE ONSLAUGHT OF CONTEMPORARY “REALITY” WE WENT SEARCHING FOR GUIDANCE.  WE FOUND BOTH PROPHETS AND DECEIVERS.  BUT TWO THAT HAVE STAYED WITH US HAVE BEEN A NATIVE AMERICAN ASTROLOGER, AND AN AFRICAN AMERICAN META-PHYSICIAN.  WHOSE TEACHINGS RESONATE A DEEP LEVEL OF SPIRITUAL AND UNIVERSAL AWARENESS.  2012 by MATU CRONEYA VISIONARY TAKES SOMETHING COMPLEX OR INDESCRIBABLE AND TRANSMUTES IT USING NATURE, SYMBOLS, LANGUAGE, NUMBERS, & TECHNOLOGY.  MOST TIMES SIMULTANEOUSLY.  THE SAME CAN BE SAID WITH LATERAL THINKERS AND INTERDISCIPLINARIANS, WHO TAKE SEEMINGLY UNRELATED IDEAS AND PROCESS THEM, OFTEN TIMES USING ACCIDENTAL AND PERIPHERAL INFORMATION CREATING NEW MODES OF UNDERSTANDING THE UNIVERSE WE INHABIT.

TREE OF KNOWLEDGE/ ENERGY >>MATTER >> LIFE >> MIND >> CULTURE

JUST LIKE HUNDREDS OF YEARS AGO, “THE TRUTH” HAS ALWAYS BEEN CONCEALED, AND DUMBED DOWN TO CREATE MAIN STREAM MEDIA “NEWS”, WHICH QUICKLY BECOMES CONSENSUS REALITY.  THE SAME BREAD. THE SAME CIRCUS. IN A BOX NOW INSTEAD OF AN AMPHITHEATER.ON YOUTUBE WE GET A WEEKLY DOSE OF METAPHYSICAL REALNESS ON THE META CHANNEL.  OUR MAN JAMES WILL POWER BREAKS DOWN CONTEMPORARY CULTURE USING CONTEMPORARY LANGUAGE, & CULTURE AS HIS REFERENCE POINT.  THE BREADTH OF HIS KNOWLEDGE IS JAWDROPPING, BUT WHAT IS TRULY AMAZING IS HIS ABILITY TO CONDENSE THESE NUGGETS OF GOLD INTO 10 MINUTE VIDEOS.

OUR SECOND VISIONARY IS BARBARA HAND CLOW, WHO CAN BE SEEN AS A MODERN DAY ORACLE. IN 2012 SHE WENT OFFLINE, BUT HAS RECENTLY COME OUT WITH AN AMAZING 2012-2015 ANALYSIS.  IN WHICH SHE FOCUSES ON THE URANUS/ PLUTO SQUARE RELATIONSHIP. IN WHICH THE TRANS FORMATIVE ENERGIES THAT SHAPED THE RENAISSANCE 500 YEARS AGO WILL BE COURSING THROUGH THE ETHER. CREATING THE NEW PARADIGM.
