What I was doing can no longer be neatly contained by the descriptions previously posted.
Just as Desire has to be pulled from the lava flow, fitted and rigged (insert sloopish jargon here) so too On Desire must be made ready. I’ve been ingesting ideas and history to situate On Desire. “Century of the Self” and “Power of Nightmares” by Adam Curtis have given flesh to my ghosts. Things ARE whacked and there’s a reason for it, there’s a history that can be discerned. His most recent “What Happened to our Dreams of Freedom” is next on the list.
Other influences are “Zeitgiest” and more recently “Addendum”.
