Context
____________________________________________________________________________
Future’s here now – thousands sitting alone in the ubiquitous identikit Costa, brains
swimming in CC’s very own Caffeineplus while pawing at mobile, tablet or lappy,
busy communicating with others far away.
A case of absence makes the sales grow stronger?

Work No 681; Unfinished Business

UB
 Work No 681; Unfinished Business
 c. Michael St.Mark, December 20th 2013

Temporary found Work.
Partially completed office block, Kings Cross

A commercial mid-build at the point of exhibiting a compelling visual appeal
comprising a partially clad reinforced concrete beam support structure with
a
few glass sealed units fitted, workers’ external cage stations and glimpses
of an interior concrete stairwell.
A construction crane was still in situ.
With its subtle color and grid line combinations, the building pictured at that
stage possessed a quite profound semi-abstract appeal.
.
A stone’s throw from Central St.Martins college of art, this interesting transient
construction phase outshone the self-important pompous pretension that
passes as art
within that cronyism / nepotism ( friends, friends of friends or family )
-infested institution.

Dada at St.Martins

Post from 2012
London Dada remembering Trenton Oldfield, the admirably-principled swimmer/activist who risked his neck in reminding 30 million television viewers worldwide of the nasty, pernicious Oxbridge-run class system still thriving ( running the government,the banks, the media and arts; extorting via unelected privilege and exerting gross inequality across the jobs and opportunities market ) in the “home of Democracy”.

Just a few days ago learning from some crusty old beak that a custodial sentence is on the cards for creating a “public nuisance”
.

* June 4th 2013; Mainstream media orchestrated to chime in respectful remembrance of the Suffragette Emily Wilding Davison who was fatally injured when she ran out in front of King George V’s horse during the Epsom Derby, on 4 June 1913…. yet Trenton Oldfield, who risked his life to demonstrate against the old school tie Oxbridge elitists media & banking cartel that run the country (v. bady), the terminal state of the NHS with its privatisation by stealth, legalised murder, A&E shambles and cover-ups; being jailed for his trouble – rien ne change plus.

Story background

Oldfield did a good deed, to be considered performance art in line with the moral protest spirit of Dada” – Michael St.Mark

RIP Lou Reed, integrity personified.

RIP Lou Reed 1942 – 2013

Artist of genuine integrity and talent who fearlessly portrayed the full spectrum of life around him and who relentlessly upheld core human values;  ‘telling it like it is’ regardless of career-limiting consequences

Dirty Boulevard” from the 1989 New York album

Give us your hungry, your tired, your poor; we’ll piss all over them
  That’s what the Tory/Lib Dem coalition say.

And who could blame anyone for wanting a perfect day, smack bang away from the madness?
