“Since so many brave survivors and I have come forward, titans of every industry have toppled. We, survivors, have gained our power. We, survivors, are using our voices in record numbers. We cannot let up, and as hard as it is, we must continue to get even louder, to push even harder. We all count, and we all matter. Here’s to freedom, yours and mine. Now go breathe fire.”
― Rose McGowan, Brave
“EVENTUALLY, I WON MY POINT, WHICH WAS: – “I AM AN ARTIST, AND THAT TAPE IS ONE OF MY ARTWORKS, AND IT BELONGS TO ME.” YES, THEY CAN HAVE A COPY. I HAD A POINT OF VIEW AND A REASON TO FIGHT. ON THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW, I SAID: “LITTLE BROTHER WATCHING BIG BROTHER.” THAT WAS A BIG STATEMENT, AND MILLIONS OF PEOPLE SAW THAT. IT MEANT ANY INDIVIDUAL WITH A CAMERA (WHICH CAN BE A POWER WEAPON USED TO PROTECT ONE’S DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS) COULD HOLD THE AUTHORITIES AND THE POLICE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS ON THE STREET! THAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF A WHOLE NEW DIGITAL AGE. “
Keep your halos tight
I’m your god or your guardian
Keep your halo tight
One hand on the trigger, the other hand in mine
Because now, cupid carries a gun
Now, now, cupid, cupid carries a gun.
“We are oscillating above the harsh vs soft vision of reality closely linked to the artist’s perception of the body in its physical, cultural, and psychic dimensions. The group of portraits shown at the “No It Is Not Not Always” exhibition in vibrant East London intends to question how we understand and relate to inherent aspects of human experiences, such as uncertainty and eccentricity, but also to culture and the symbolics that make it identifiable. “-Arthur Sopin and Andreas Rod.
” TOGETHER WITH KUNSTHALLE OSLO AND MUNCH MUSEET IN MOTION, WE HAVE AN EXHIBITION PROGRAMME ATTRACTING A HIGHLY VARIED AND BROAD ART CROWD TO THIS AREA. AND A BIT FURTHER DOWN THE ROAD, THE MUNCH MUSEUM AND MAIN LIBRARY, TOGETHER WITH THE OPERA HOUSE, ALL WILL FORM A RARE AND POWERFUL CENTRE FOR THE ARTS. I BELIEVE OTHER GALLERIES WILL FOLLOW SOON TOO.”
” My best talent is turning everything into a light game. I approach everything I do with a sense of playfulness. I play games, even in projects that demand a lot of energy and effort. I decided to try to sustain our playful quality when we were kids – to avoid limiting myself and use my imagination freely. We must never forget how to play: So many great things can come out of it!”
” I hopped on a train with some Polaroids I’d taken with a disposable camera. I got fortunate, got signed right away, and started working from the get-go. I planned to only do it for the summer, but then I fell in love with it, and I have never looked back.”

“OPEN UP” IS ABOUT DARING TO BE HUMBLE AND VULNERABLE. AND HONEST. IT IS ABOUT DARING TO EXPOSE FEELINGS AND LETTING PEOPLE SEE YOU’RE NOT PERFECT. NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE DARE TO MEET ON A TOTALLY HONEST LEVEL, MASKS OFF. LIFE CAN HURT YOU IF YOU DO NOT DEAL WITH YOUR PROBLEMS PROPERLY; NEGATIVE ENERGY CAN BE PERSISTENT. WE MUST DARE TO LET PEOPLE ENTER.
DON’T GET STUCK ON WHAT YOU CAN’T DO. IN FACT, DON’T GET STUCK ON ANYTHING. THE WORLD LEAVES NO ROOM FOR BOREDOM. SPEND TIME WITH PEOPLE WHO WANT TO SHARE THEIR IDEAS WITH YOU. BE WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE CONFIDENT ENOUGH NOT TO GET TERRITORIAL. THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN TOO MUCH RATHER THAN TOO LITTLE. IF YOU CREATE YOUR OWN REALITY, YOU’LL MANAGE.
FROM THAT PLACE, AS SOON AS MY EYES ARE OPEN, I CAN NO LONGER ESCAPE. NOT THAT I AM NAILED DOWN BY IT, SINCE AFTER ALL I CAN NOT ONLY MOVE, SHIFT, BUT I CAN ALSO MOVE IT, SHIFT-IT, CHANGE ITS PLACE, THE ONLY THINGS IS THIS: I CANNOT MOVE WITHOUT IT. I CANNOT LEAVE IT THERE WHERE IT IS, SO THAT I; MYSELF, MAY GO ELSEWHERE. I CAN GO TO THE OTHER END OF THE WORLD; I CAN HIDE IN THE MORNING UNDER THE COVERS, MAKE MYSELF AS SMALL AS POSSIBLE. I CAN EVEN LET MYSELF MELT UNDER THE SUN AT THE BEACH-IT WILL ALWAYS BE THERE. WHERE I AM. IT IS HERE, IRREPARABLY: IT IS NEVER ELSEWHERE. MY BODY, IT’S THE OPPOSITE OF UTOPIA: THAT WHICH IS NEVER UNDER DIFFERENCE SKIES. IT IS THE ABSOLUTE PLACE, THE LITTLE FRAGMENT OF SPACE WHERE I AM, LITERALLY, EMBODIED. MY BODY, PITILESS PLACE.
In business, the professions, the arts, or personal and community life, such skills are essential in fostering Group Projects or Social Artistry, leading to constructive change. Conversely, without these skills, collaborative activity tends to degenerate into petty bickering, which gives “committees” their reputation for inefficiency and interpersonal vulnerability.
Frank E. Weinert and Rainer H. Kluwe psychologists explain that Role-Playing develops a capacity for metacognition (or dialogue with unconsciousness), the ability to think about the ways one thinks. It is a natural result of the exercise of role distance, the shifting between the role of the part being played and the actor’s role in the conference with the director about how that part should be performed. The resulting “choosing self” is a psychological complex that represents a degree of mental flexibility that is a step beyond the ordinary rational level of consciousness because it deals with the realistic capacity to shift among some different frames of reference. It may even be that this type of mental flexibility represents the next step in the evolution of consciousness.
“Suppose I were to give you a key ring […] with a hundred keys, and I was to tell you that one of these keys will unlock it, this door we imagine opening in onto all you want to be, as a player. How many of the keys would you be willing to try?’
‘Well, I’d try every darn one,’ Rader tells Lyle.
‘Then you are willing to make mistakes, you see. You are saying you will accept 99% error. The paralyzed perfectionist you say you would stand there before that door. Jingling the keys. Afraid to try the first key.”

” I JUST HOPE TO CONVEY SOME EMOTION TO THE VIEWERS. IF THIS HAPPENS, YOU CAN SAY THAT I HAVE ACHIEVED MY PURPOSE. I TRY TO BE VERY HONEST WITH THE EMOTIONS I APPLY IN MY PHOTOGRAPHS. I USE PHOTOGRAPHY AS THE BEST WAY TO SHOW THE FEELINGS I CAN NOT EXPRESS IN WORDS OR DEEDS.”
