Monarchie-Monchhichi-Monarchichi (2011)

Monarchie-Monchhichi-Monarchichi (above), published in Her Royal Majesty — A Paris-based literary arts magazine , Nov. 1, 2011.  HRM is an international literary and arts review edited, designed and defined by a collection of writers and artists living in Paris.  The thematic for issue 11: Doubles.

While reading Language of Art by Nelson Goodman, I came across a description which I thought worked well with the image. Here it is below. I have replaced the Duke and the Duchess of Wellington for the Prince and Princess of Wales.

What a picture is said to represent may be denoted by the picture as a whole or by a part of it. Likewise, a picture may be a soandso-picture as a whole or merely thought containing a soandso-picture. Consider an ordinary portrait of the Prince and Princess of Wales. The picture (as a whole) denotes the couple, and (in part) denotes the Prince. Furthermore, it is (as a whole) a two-person-picture, and (in part) a man-picture. The picture represents the Prince and the Princess as two persons, and represents the Prince as a man. But although it represents the Prince, and is a two-person-picture, it obviously does not represent the Prince as two-persons; and although it represents two-persons and is a man-picture, it does not represent the two as a man. For the picture neither is nor contains any picture that as a whole both represents the Prince and is a two-man-picture, or that as a whole both represents two persons and is a man-picture.

Original version:

Bébite-Man, l’homme bébite (2010)

monsieur bébite butine

avec son grand bec

dans les fleurs des jardins interdits

sur les rebords des assiettes

où sèchent au soleil

les restes des banquets

où reluit la mélasse sucrée

et les marres de sirop d’érable

il enfonce sa tête

au complet

dans la pulpe rougeâtre

des cantaloups juteuses

en fredonnant sa joie de vivre

il s’étend nu

sur les nappes à carreaux

près des gros fromages que les vents chauds

du sud-ouest

viennent lécher

il boit à grand trait

dans les coupes de champagne

il flotte dans les bulles du bonheur

comme un baigneur insouciant

Nuclear Mickeys (2003)

• Nuclear Mickey, digital prints with sound, Disaster Group Exhibition, Truck, Calgary, AB, 2004

Nuclear Mickeys (Images)
The Disneylandization of fears and the Benettonning of all experiences

The Nuclear Mickeys is a series of manipulated images of nuclear explosions that got a fashion makeover for easy and safe consumption.  The grafting of a Mickey Mouse head on the top of the mushroom cloud brands the disaster, and creates a cultural event, much like the Benetton publicity campaigns of the 1990’s.

 

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

The first atomic bomb was detonated at Los Alamos, New Mexico on July 6, 1945. Upon witnessing the first test of a nuclear weapon, the Diroctor of The Manhattan Project stated:

“We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.’ I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.”
J. Robert Oppenheimer

666 seconds of Oppenheimer’s hesitation (Sound)

While listening to the sound file of the quote, I became fascinated by the silences and hesitations of Oppenheimer.  The historic audio recording of Oppenheimer was 58 seconds in length. Of those 58 seconds, 28 seconds were comprised of silences and hesitations. This audiowork is made up of the hesitations repeated 23.78 times, to create a new track 11 minutes and 6 seconds, or 666 seconds in length.  The silence became for me, the incarnation of our ‘loss of grip’ on ‘ the social meaning of nuclear weapons’
