In the beginning was the MERZ seed. Planted in fertile teenage spirit, watered & nurtured, growing horizontal roots and verticals stems. The roots spreading 360 degrees, interwining with other roots from other seeds in soil composed by rotten plants & all sorts of organic debris.

As kids we used to wave our hands in front of somebody's face saying "the air is free for all" ("lufta er fri for alle"). It was a sort of border-seeking ritual expression excusing the intrusion of somebody's private space and being of general nuisance. Like so many other of our childhood freedoms I've later included it in my work with art and music, it's still a basic motivation for me to present my work in a public space. Waving my art too close to your face, in your face. Yeah, more often than not it's still appearing as an intrusion of private space and being of general nuisance. The border-seeking part is my invitation for further discussion.

"The creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act."
- Marcel Duchamp

Insistism: Relieving the artstructures of function to replace it with the dysfunction of positioning. Say what? Pouring concrete in the trenches, grouting the gaps between the tiles of square knowledge. Or being like water. Seeping in.
