Found a clever song by Kids Without Instruments “Fossils”  from 2014.

Someday we’ll turn into dust
Places we used to love will be rust
In another life I won’t know your name
In another life things won’t be the same

The song motivates me to continue working on making the concept of Deep time Marxisim audible. I stumbled to the song via FrankJavCee’s youtube channel. He has also made an interesting video on the History of Muzak. His channel reminds me on Hennessy Youngman videos.

Applied for the The Young Artist Grant. I’m feeling lucky with my grant game.

“Today’s theory demands transformation” (or something like that) cries Groys in “In the Flow”. Last week featured many transformative experiences as we hosted the “Horse and Performance” course for students of the Theater Academy Helsinki together with Pietari. The week long contemporary-horse-culture course ended in a full day of horse-animal-human-exercises, which the eight participants had planned and conducted for our group. The day was long and I lost my bearing on which inputs and ideas were provided by the horses and which were of human origin. During one set of exercises I lost track of who was an animal. Reports and photos of the course are being processed and will be publicised on the Trans-Horse blog during the following weeks. The “Theatre and Dance” magazine will also publish a small text about the course.

Paula published the “The Bat Simulator” video last week (I’m the bat). The video got me dreaming of a new leather jacket. The one on the video was found on the street and has since been broken. Timo has published “Last Worker Standing” which casts an eerie look at the concept of “New Work”. He call it an “Dyst-ironical speculative fiction machinima”. I’m inspired to make a song to accompany the video (A Deep Time Marxistic Étude). Timo’s work would go together with Paula’s recent “Harmaja +10 länsiluode 35m/s” piece presented at Hippolyte gallery.

Review of Ted Nield’s book “Supercontinent: Ten Billion Years in the Life of Our Planet” (2009) casts a shadow over the concept of Deep time Marxism. Apparently “even if some civilization of 200 million years ago had completely covered [the Earth] in cities and then wiped itself out in some gigantic global nuclear holocaust, nothing—not even the faintest trace of some unnatural radioisotope—would now remain on the surface.”. The review highlights a novel concept “no-analog” landscapes which are environments (in the past and future of earth) that aren’t in connection with our current modes of life.

I’d like to further my rhythmical indoctrination to Marxism in the dance workshop for “HEGELIAN DANCERS“ by Ericka Florez.

Playing around with “Deep time Marxism”. I explained the concept to Paula, as being 40% chitchat with Pietari and 60% of the “Dust and Exhaustion” article by Jussi Parikka, with some references to the concept of “Anthrobscene”. I made two educational videos about it. One for grooves and smoothes and the other for seduction and the weeps.

  2. Indoctrination to the Arts

We are preparing the “Horse and Performance” course for the Theater Academy Helsinki with Pietari. This time the course will be conducted inside a week which will push as to work even harder than last time (Here are the un-proofread notes of the course).
