the Electric Chair and the Bean Bag Chair: Jenny Holzer

Thomas Alva Edison, who had not been a supporter of the death penalty, became one, so that he could recommend the use of rival Westinghouse's A/C current as "unsafe" and worthy of use for electrocution and the introduction of the Electric Chair into American Folk Lore and Iconography. While Westinghouse's A/C would bring Electric Death and Torture, Edison's D/C was to be the Bearer of Light.

Janus headed, electricity is used for the art of torture, and for an art made out of the immense projection of declassified documents on immense and important structures in the art capitals of the West.

Is the magnification and projection of the documents of power, at great expense, and requiring the mobilization of large numbers of people, staffs, public relations, investors, not so much an opposition to power, as its removal to an aesthetic realm, there to be consumed as an anti-dote to feelings of "powerlessness?" Or to be embraced as a sign of "virtue?"

In her "Projections" exhibition at MassMoCa, Jenny Holzer has introduced the bean bag chair as a means of facilitating the smoothing of differences in the seeming contradiction between complete passivity and "opposition."

"Bean bag chairs are becoming more and more widespread in the world of business as research companies have declared them conducive to a more productive environment than regular chairs."

"Companies have recognized that fact that a more comfortable and less formal place to work actually encourages people to up their work rate as well as enabling creativity to flourish.

"Bean bag chairs are becoming more and more widespread in the world of business as research companies have declared them conducive to a more productive environment than regular chairs. As a result, bean bag chairs are replacing boardroom chairs. Mattel and other popular firms are manufacturing bean bag chairs to capitalize on this demand and their profits are going through the roof as a result.

Businessmen, celebrities and children alike are all enjoying the delights of the bean bag chair today. There are thousands of designs to choose from and they are able to fit into any room of the house as a result. They can match existing décor, provide a room with a focal point and even be a conductor for productive business energies. There is nothing that bean bag chairs cannot do."

The individual "letters/persons" become blocks, and then lines, of black and white, text and spaces, in which "the words of the people" become legible as the writing of One Will, to be read aloud back to them by Der Fuehrer, the Voice of the Will of the People.

"Companies have recognized that fact that a more comfortable and less formal place to work actually encourages people to up their work rate as well as enabling creativity to flourish."

At once working & creatively flourishing, the spectator observes the passing of the words of the lines of poetry as they move among degrees of legibility. The "words of the people" and its Will are transformed into a continual production and consumption of products provided by the "Projectionist" and the Makers of Bean Bag Chairs. The relaxed atmosphere provides for a cheerful appreciation and willing acceptance of the displays of Power. "More comfortable and less formal," reception of the paintings of the power point War images and memos downloaded from the NSA archives (where one may find a permanent Holzer Gallery entitled "Art Before Power") "pacifies" their threatening aspects and turns them into aesthetic re-productions of a fait-accompli.

Holzer text here is essay on Holzer's works by NSA archives director Thomas Blanton —image from NSA archives on line

"She turns every surface into a page, she illuminates not only texts but perception, and by projecting these secrets into the night she transforms the words of power into transitory bolts of lightning." From Thomas Blanton's essay on Jenny Holzer

breast head hussy

you no love breast headed hussy
mortars girls' names
glorious days arrived
unobtrusively went way
she was a hussy we f_ucked our brain Hmm self censorship is better repressd. as in forcough for fuck off
dat way two has desire rhetoric

I had no love for the death's-head hussars,
Nor for the mortars with the girls' names on them.
And when at last the glorious days arrived,
I unobtrusively went on my way.

deletet you were | I was| thinking thinking| confusued identintiy| you think saving| well I think\Congo Congo Bongo|about something you said a few month ago Gogood ago on Brim |was that something? she was inside her skirt then casterfating |about the problem or reality of non tactile surface on blogs, on internet ... on web. its been years since ive tried visually to resolve that AbSoLove AbSolAm . i cant find a way. the very hard ness of the glass makes it appear impossible by definition. maybe when screens go soft and plucky then we can make them dirty and have texture .. i think the visual art effects inthe net are that much harder to sustain as the net becomes for the eye already a form of mediation and second stepping second remove... already its far away from the 'original' material the artist works on and with ... IOuI~used to do whole apartments into collages and we both know about the work of Schwitters and others.. but to me ven Schwitter is cold at least int he surfaces of the Merzbau that ive seen but then again Ive only seen reproductions...

so maybe the internet webb/blog is is better suited for words? perhaps language is closer to unmediated not sure. i just printed something out and theres no doubt it had way more texture printed!
Oh shit!_ fhor forshitophrenia of mud elastic as ego to I Ieye to eye as you to U to I? is ego subLime not predictable rhetorical effect maybe that given medium better
suited persuaded to effect of raw and cooked ?
its a complex one rune and how to work around it
the sentence i just made there a second ago undid the usual syntactic or synTAX of the order-word called sentence: a sentence to tax the lingo: it's an ever ending and departing discourse....
Some of the work I do running languages and text twogethergather is a way to break down the prob. of eye and text and touch and text....
the problem is three four leveled.. the material followed by the means of production _ usually built into the original material and then the further means of reproduction... not quite the same as creation and recreation and procreation...

as always the intensity is what counts, the affect the line of cut and recut .. what goes to the heart and its circling allies... as in alliances not filiations... best to me best to belle-lettres

the original units of clasnin’s ontological semism were the conjunction of the formable and the intermittent. what suckle, shudder.

an ontology of alert and pedestals which makes up the numbest of configurations – the ideology is supplanted with the rebellious meta-image, against which the fanboy is juxtaposed in military outfit and beaker. separably. the timber, and mix – rationing.

clasnitz’s ultimate sansurian *signe* is an adipose layering of the excited in text and menial, and the pedestal corollary. the symbol is administered. whether there is a third indeterminate perce isn’t in his theoretical intent – “the multiplicity” as she says “collapses both immediately and spoken” as is aciduous in the renewing polymathy of wittkienstawitz’s phoenix. collapsing.

- a separable event of the forthright and numb – the cyclamate. the interred image is made up allowing ease and pure meaning, the morbid passing of proceedings into the substantial. liquid. whetted striking, clasnitz and the attributed metaphysics with the relentlessly unpragmatic.
