The Fortnightly Review › Vorticism.

It is no more ridiculous that a person should receive or convey an emotion by means of an arrangement of shapes, or planes, or colours, than that they should receive or convey such emotion by an arrangement of musical notes. I SUPPOSE THIS PROPOSITION is self-evident. Whistler said as much, some years ago, and Pater proclaimed that “All arts approach the conditions of music.” Whenever I say this I am greeted with a storm of “Yes, but”…s. “But why isn’t this art futurism?”

Let me explain at leisure, and in nice, orderly, old-fashioned prose. We are all futurists to the extent of believing with Guillaume Appollonaire that “On ne peut pas porter partout avec soi le cadavre de son pere.” There is another artistic descent viâ Picasso and Kandinsky; viâ cubism and expressionism.

Futurism

Marinetti expressed a passionate loathing of everything old, especially political and artistic tradition. "We want no part of it, the past", he wrote, "we the young and strong Futurists! " The Futurist painters were slow to develop a distinctive style and subject matter. They often painted modern urban scenes. BLAST (magazine) Blast was the short-lived literary magazine of the Vorticist movement in Britain.

Two editions were published: the first on 2 July 1914 (dated 20 June 1914, but publication was delayed)[1][2] and published with uncharacteristic and shockingly bright pink cover art, referred to by Ezra Pound as the "great MAGENTA cover'd opusculus"; and the second a year later on 15 July 1915. Stelarc. Stelarc (born Stelios Arcadiou in Limassol in 1946, but legally changed his name in 1972) is a Cyprus-born performance artist raised in the Melbourne suburb of Sunshine,[1] whose works focuses heavily on extending the capabilities of the human body.

Stelarc

As such, most of his pieces are centered on his concept that the human body is obsolete. Until 2007 he held the position of Principal Research Fellow in the Performance Arts Digital Research Unit at Nottingham Trent University in Nottingham, England. He is currently furthering his research at Curtin University in Western Australia. Performances[edit] Parasite: Event for Invaded and Involuntary Body, at the 1997 Ars Electronica Festival Stelarc's idiosyncratic performances often involve robotics or other relatively modern technology integrated with his body. In another performance he allowed his body to be controlled remotely by electronic muscle stimulators connected to the internet.
