Troika Trio: Dark Matter at Art Basel 2014

ثلاثي ترويكا:
توليفة الإختلاف
“في بحثنا في العالم اليوم نمتلئ نحن شخصياً بمتضادات عديدة…..
هل يمكن أن تكون متدين عقلاني, هل يمكن أن تصنع فن منطقي, هل يمكن أن يصبح العلم ذاتي/أهوائي. فبدلا من وضع الأشياء في صناديق, نتقبل كل شئ كما في ما بعد الحداثه. من خلال ذلك نحاول إيجاد إن كان هناك شئ أعلي من ذلك يمكنه توليف
هذه الأشياء.ك

تألف الإختلاف هو إيجاد منطق أعلي بأفق أوسع لرؤية الأشياء علي ما هي عليه بالفعل, يضم -ما نعتبره-  مختلفات و متناقضات تحت تعريف جديد. ما نسعي إليه هو خلق نموذج/إطار مختلف للتعريف, ينتج منه تعريفات جديدة بها مرونة كافيه لإحتواء تناقضات عالمنا اليوم.ك


“the piece …looking at society and the world we live in, in a sense that we live in a world where everybody is ready to accept multiple truths, like everything can go.
and what we’re trying to see, that if behind these multiple realities, all multiple ways of seeing the world there is not something kind of a higher principle something that would unify those different facets, a little bit as if all the models we have the way we’re inquiring about the world gives us different perspective that they’re often contradictory.”

٠١٤ – تنفيسة

مخدرات
لازم مخدرات
الخمرة خره
لازم العالي لابيض
و لازم نتفادي نعيش الصبح
النور بيموتني
بيفكرني اني كنت عايز اعمل حاجة
لازم نرجع نعيش باليل بس
و لازم مزيكا عاليه
و لازم بحر
ولازم نكسم الحياة
لاحنا ولادها و هي امنا
احنا ولاد الاكتئاب
يبقي نحضنه و نرضي به و نشتاق له
و الاكتئاب يحب المخدر
و مايحبش التفكير
هو الاكتئاب شخصيا تعبان نفسيا
و قمة الابداع فقط الموت
لوحدك خالص

-مايكل صبري

084 – Pepsi ≠ bread


this square is a symbol, a global one, for freedom, for change for people’s power, it represents me as part of the Egyptian revolution, and part of the global revolution against capitalism and what it represent. and the usual response of power is “i will fuck it up for you, don’t think you have the say on what will happen”.

it represents you as a free soul on this planet the spark started there, the wave that just started three years ago now, and still finding its way around the globe, the Tahrir effect is undeniable, no matter how much they will try to ruin it, sometimes by overly glorifying it some other times like this time will try to corporatize it and shit brand all over it.
in your face free soul, in your face if you think you own it, in your face aesthetics and ethics.

hoist that flag, this land is my land, this symbol will stay. we are not few who are watching and knowing it is wrong. fuck you if you think you are in control fuck you if you think you can break our will to change. its coming, its coming big.

Reggie Watts – Why S**** so crazy?

073 – George Carlin’s sanctity of life

….
I mean, life is sacred? Who said so? God? Hey, if you read history, you realise that God is one of the leading causes of death. Has been for thousands of years.
Hindus, Muslims, Jews, Christians all taking turns killing each other ‘cuz God told them it was a good idea.
……
But don’t be giving me all this shit about the sanctity of life.
……
‘Cuz, I mean, even with all this stuff we preach about the sanctity of life, we don’t practice it. We don’t practice it.
Look at what we’d kill:
Mosquitos and flies. ‘Cuz they’re pests.
Lions and tigers. ‘Cuz it’s fun!
Chickens and pigs. ‘Cuz we’re hungry.
Pheasants and quails. ‘Cuz it’s fun.
And we’re hungry.
And people.
We kill people…
‘Cuz they’re pests.
And it’s fun!

And you might have noticed something else.
The sanctity of life doesn’t seem to apply to cancer cells, does it?
You rarely see a bumper sticker that says “Save the tumors.“. Or “I brake for advanced melanoma.“.
No, viruses, mold, mildew, maggots, fungus, weeds, E. Coli bacteria, the crabs. Nothing sacred about those things.
So at best the sanctity of life is kind of a selective thing. We get to choose which forms of life we feel are sacred, and we get to kill the rest. Pretty neat deal, huh? You know how we got it? We made the whole fucking thing up! Made it up! The same way… thank you.

070 – feat. suzeeinthecity

Foodist, adventurer, master blogger, stylist, journalist, Egyptian, party animal, rocker,…..well i’m just honored to feature her here


….
Then one day, my mother informed me that it was time to put on the top half of my two-piece swimsuit instead of running around in shorts (I apparently spent the first 2.5 years of my life running around naked in people’s gardens , which makes for very awkward small talk 20 years later when I run into them).

I remember being absolutely indignant at my mother’s request.

‘Why should I?’ I hollered, ‘The other boys don’t wear tops.’

‘You’re not a boy, dear,’ my mother sighed. ‘You’re a girl.’

‘So what? I climb faster than them, and some of them cry like girls.’

It’s true. I remember a whiner called Sherif who would run blubbering to his nanny every time he got hurt while tree climbing. Yes, I was a tree climber and crying boys were sissies. ….

#2 Create Genuine Rapport

We all have razor sharp B.S. meters.
As soon as we sense someone isn’t being genuine, they are dismissed.
Whether you know it or not, your subconscious is doing it.
After all, it’s impossible to have a real deep connection, with meaningful rapport, without actually knowing who you are talking to.
Sure you may be friendly, but you’ll always be missing something…
…something big.
The something that makes two people connect as husband and wife or two buddies become lifelong friends.
It’s because at some point they decided to be open. Simple as that.
The world and our experiences within it are all based on genuine personal connection. Without it we miss out on the best parts and end up being pretty miserable in the process.
I challenge you to be more of who you are and you will create a rapport that will have your audience returning regularly.
