"I simply want to say that representation itself is suffering a deep crisis. This means - and this is probably the biggest quality of the contemporary era - that because of this crisis, human dimensions become very important. The quality of the result is very relative. It is important now that an object - and not just an object, it could be a gesture, a performance, etc. - is based on the human gesture behind it. We are facing the moment when notions such as style, fashion, language... have completely lost their significance."(Viktor Misiano:PME - Les Productions M E de l'art)

:: note :: . . . visit Norway to learn about canadian theater . . . experience a sense of isolation/alienation . . . wonder why so many (too many) artists choose to ignore the possibility that the space next to them may be inviting . . . experience a slight sadness that they choose to gesture and search significance away rather than towards . . . but i understand and with a shrug meet them in the virtual space to wonder as they wander . . .
