invisible man installation & an iPhone : grace cathedral, san francisco (2011)

for more information on this installation

 

the cool thing about this piece is that all the needles are pin-pointed against the figure of a man, so as it rotates, the invisible man can be seen from every angle rotating.

 

the piece is about the number of injections that men with HIV/AIDS receive.

 

to me, it is about the way in which AIDS was first transmitted to the greatest number of people -- through an oral vaccine that resulted in subcutaneous dependencies.

 

the FACT that people will not accept this is horrifying. making up stories about tainted monkey blood and hunters eating the meat is absurd and ridiculous. plus it hides the culpability of the medical industry which unleashed this worldwide virus on the human population.

 

how do we tell the people in the white coats ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!?

from one of my favorite bands in the 80s... back when music had meaning!

 

NEW MODEL ARMY

 

WHITE COATS (1987)

Well we know what makes the flowers grow - but we don't know why

And we all have the knowledge of DNA - but we still die

We perch so thin and fragile here upon the land

And the earth that moves beneath us, we don't understand

 

So we rush towards the Judgement Day, when She reclaims

A toast to the Luddite martyrs then, who died in vain

Down at the lab they're working still, finishing off

How do we tell the people in the white coats

Enough is enough is enough is enough is enough is enough!!!?

 

Hey, hey I listen to you pray as if some help will come

Hey, hey She will dance on our graves when we are dead and gone,

when we are dead and gone!!!!!

 

You and I we made no suicide pact - we didn't want to die

But we watch the wall, little darling, while the chemical trucks go by

This desperate imitation, now, of innocence

Those last few days at Jonestown ain't got nothing on this!!!!

 

Hey, hey I listen to you pray as if some help will come

Hey, hey She will dance on our graves when we are dead and gone

 

 

Now beneath the fitted carpets, beyond the padded cells

Within these crimes of passion, the naked truth She dwells --

And this fury's just a part and this thunder's just a part

Desire is just a part - the cracking ice, the splitting rock

 

Hey, hey I listen to you pray as if some help will come

Hey, hey She will dance on our graves when we are dead and gone

when we are dead and gone, when we are dead and gone,

when we are dead and gone!

 

As children learn about the world, we built that wall of sand

Along the beach we laboured hard with our bare hands

We worked until the sun went down beneath the waves

And the tide came rolling splashing in, washed the wall away

 

How do we tell the people in the white coats

Enough is enough?

How do we tell the people in the white coats

Enough is enough is enough is enough is enough is ENOUGH!!!!?
