YALE PROF. PAUL FRY ON WHAT DERRIDA MEANT BY
2 27 Yesterday
Yale prof. paul fry on what derrida meant by "there is nothing outside the text".
.
.
it's always supposed popularly that deconstruction denies the existence of any reality outside a text. derrida famously, notoriously said “there is nothing outside the text,” right!? what he meant by that of course is, that there's nothing but text. that is to say the entire tissue and structure and nature of our lives – including history, which we know textually, is all there is – our lives are textual lives. that's what he meant. he didn't mean to say the text is here, and the text contains everything that matters, and nothing else exists anyway. what he meant to say is that “there is nothing but text in the sense that absolutely everything we ordinarily take to be just our kind of spontaneously lived existence is in fact mediated by our knowledge and that our knowledge is textual.

Today at Redbrick Mill.
I find it interesting to see artists with such different methods working in the same studio. Only a few feet apart Carole was lashing on pots of paint onto her large sunflower painting whilst  Dennis was channeling his inner Van Gogh and tackling the same subject with his brand new i pad pro and Pro-Create app.
Inevitably there were questions and conversations, some technical and some verging on the philosophic such as, ‘What value does the original have if any’ and ‘What value should we place on effort in assessing a work of art’? Art is as much about intelligent analysis as it is about clever manipulation of materials, I feel the artists I teach at Redbrick Mill seem to prove that.

CITY LIGHTS PUBLISH HOWL BY ALLEN GINSBERG✍.
. .
.
'CITY LIGHTS is an independent bookstore/publisher in San Francisco, California, founded in 1953 by poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Peter D. Martin. Both the store and the publishers became widely known following the obscenity trial of Ferlinghetti for publishing Allen Ginsberg's influential collection 'Howl and Other Poems' (City Lights, 1956). Ferlinghetti had heard Ginsberg read Howl in 1955 at the Six Gallery; the next day, he offered to publish it along with other shorter poems. Published in November 1956,  Howl was not long in generating controversy. In March 1957, local Collector of Customs Chester MacPhee seized a shipment from England of the book's second printing on grounds of obscenity, but he was compelled to release the books when federal authorities refused to confirm his charge. But the troubles were just beginning, for in June of that year, local police raided City Lights Bookstore and arrested store manager  Shigeyoshi Murao on the charge of offering an obscene book for sale. Ferlinghetti, then in Big Sur, turned himself in on his return to San Francisco. Both faced a possible $500 fine and a 6-month sentence. (Ginsberg was in Tangiers at the time, and not charged.) The ACLU posted bail, assigned defense counsel Albert Bendich to the case, and secured the pro bono services of famous criminal defense lawyer J. W. Ehrlich. The municipal court trial, presided over by Judge Clayton W. Horn, ran from August 16 to September 3, 1957. The charges against Murao were dismissed since it couldn’t be proved that he knew what was in the book. Then, during the trial of Ferlinghetti, respected writers and professors testified for the defense. Judge Horn rendered his precedent-setting verdict, declaring that Howl was not obscene and that a book with “the slightest redeeming social importance” guarantees First Amendment protection. Horn's decision established the precedent that paved the way for the publication of such hitherto banned books as D. H. Lawrence's 'Lady Chatterley's Lover' and Henry Miller's 'Tropic of Cancer'.'

DENNIS LIM✍NEW YORKER. 29 JUNE.
.
.

BEFORE his brief stint in the social-media shooting gallery this past week as an alleged Donald Trump supporter, David Lynch was more closely associated with a different Republican President: Ronald Reagan. The opening sequence of “Blue Velvet” (1986), the film that came to define Lynch in the popular imagination, is a heightened, slow-motion vision of idyllic, picket-fence America, complete with a friendly fireman and crossing guard. Its imagery almost exactly matches a Reagan campaign commercial from two years earlier, a soft-focus, feel-good montage that opens with the promise of a new dawn: “It’s morning again in America.” “There is sin and evil in this world,” Reagan declared, in one of his most famous speeches, and “Blue Velvet” emphatically concurs. In one of the film’s most quotable monologues, its wide-eyed hero, Jeffrey (Kyle MacLachlan), wonders, “Why is there so much trouble in this world?” [...] In Lynch’s films, the volatility of the self and of reality as we know it means that good and evil are rarely fixed coördinates. It’s telling that Lynch couched his praise of Trump in terms of disruption. Chaos, for Trump, is a by-product of incompetence, a cover for criminality, perhaps an end in itself. But, for Lynch, disruption is generative: trauma, the recurring subject of his films, can rupture the fabric of reality. His work thrives on destabilization and ambiguity, and in that regard could hardly be further from the fascist mind-set of Trumpism. [...] We are very far from morning in America, and the words of Frank Booth, the most Trumpian of Lynch’s characters, are more resonant than ever: “Now it’s dark.”

I get it – nobody wants to be criticized. 🤷🏻‍♀️ We all feel so bad when someone criticizes us. And believe me, criticizing yourself is not that great either! ☹️
〰
But I want to say that criticism matters. I think that we often fail to see or understand the mistakes we make, the flaws we have and the lies we tell ourselves. So we sometimes need someone to point these things out to us.
〰
Criticism is painful, but it can also help us grow in powerful and wonderful ways – if we seek it and accept it. 💥
〰
When I say that I support criticism, I don’t mean that we should be mean or bullies. We still need to do our best to be respectful and kind while also being frank and honest. But if the criticism is coming from a good place and if it is true, shouldn’t we take it into account? I think we should.
〰
Otherwise, we’ll end up living in a world where people are running around naked because nobody has the courage to tell them they are not wearing any clothes! Remember that fairy tale about the emperor’s new clothes? 🤴👸 👑 It’s a great metaphor for the world we live in.
〰
You may be tempted to ignore good advice and criticism and label it as “negativity”. But if it’s just the truth, maybe you should dare to listen and take a look in the mirror.
〰
I’ve just written an article about this. 👩🏻‍💻 It’s a topic I have been thinking about a lot and I felt super-inspired so I poured out my thoughts on my blog. Go read it now and let me know what you think. 📲Do you ignore criticism or try to accept it?

I was drawing two random whales until my brother walk up to me.
“That whale (the bottom) almost looks like a person.”
Let’s just say I took his criticism and expanded on it.
