<nettime-ann> [art] Global Islands Project

Global Islands Project -- ongoing series of multi-media pdf-ebooks -- a
pictorial and phonic elicitation of island parameters.

Your (Art)world is based on mutual relief at your common corruption.
Maybe some
cultures are based on even worse. But that wouldn't change the bad faith
of it and
as years go by, you wake at night in terror of your whole life being an
act of bad
faith, where everything is self-interest and nothing more, where every
interaction is driven by a silent, even subconscious calculation of some
motive, to the point that a sea of bad faith has taken over your whole
there's no small island left from which you can even try to build a
bridge of good
faith, because even that effort becomes suspect, even good faith is
nothing but
self-interested, even altruism is nothing but solipsistic, even your
agonizing right here right now is nothing but a gesture, made to the
conscience in
order to assure it that it exists.
