I found this image a few days ago and it stunned me. For months I have been developing an idea called Republic. It is meant to incorporate the feelings that lead me towards a transition, but translated as considerations about social relations. That is to say that when thinking about the running thread of my current projects, I figured social co-presence is still a major mystery, and there carrying its underlying secret goes the Republic. This had nothing to do with Plato.
Still, the cover designer leapt ahead with a twofold idea: the Republic you can see from the cave, or, landscape photography cut as territory. By opposing the center figure and the black space there’s a clear cut between the unconscious world of the negative and the daylight order, here represented by a desert, so as to make the point that it is not dependent on “urbanism” or whatever, but a tacit consensus between people, being that we are, after all, born with a superego. This might be some kind of wishful thinking, and yet I fly around the base concept like a moth drawn to the flame.

I’ll be back when this is done.

So I suddenly passed by a Zorro the other day. Lisbon is getting out of hand. I read an article on Dis Magazine titled “all that is solid melts into airbnb”. Kind of what’s happening here. I’m partly glad to have company but the effort is rebranding the whole territory or, depending on your point of view, filling Tinder with generic homos. The mayor is running for higher office now; who knows if he can replicate this image throughout the nation?

Went downtown for a moment. Lotsa tourists now, when will they leave? Seems like André Saraiva has a floor for himself at the design museum. Yet another con man with nothing to say and lots of eau de André to sell. I figure this is a model for future art shows — a collection of small objects somehow autographed by an artist. Imagine Basquiat splashing his crown everywhere. Anyway, the museum is the only place in Lisbon where you can find one or two Memphis objects, and the piece above could be in an 80s mag, on the page next to Sottsass.

Watched Reefer Madness. Kind of impressive, if you think about that shady group of characters. Men and women buying weed, hooking up with boys and girls.. sounds perfect to me.

Always felt dumb to me that people claimed to love each other. Of course the feeling is documented, but I prefer to be in love, i.e. to be in a location, a cloud, a space that is love. That is much harder to get IRL. We spend all our days in isolation, revisiting the same streets & beds, and only rarely through a flash of light do they appear as something else. So I keep at it, I try to find a small tunnel in the dark of night, or a breezy corner next to the river, whatever works. The fact is am very afraid to be lit like a real man at noon, but the indian summer will shelter some night moves.
