Rhizomes | Chase Alias' :)(: Bugchaser, Repetition is Unavoidable (2011)

But who is to blame. Chase Alias has found himself in an awful position this morning. He has been in a loving monogamous relationship of over a year. At the beginning of the relationship both partners did the responsible thing or so he thought/ They both went to the same doctor and supposedly both had HIV tests.

 

Chase Alias' test came back negative and that was great. His partners came back not detected and Chase was told by the doctor that meant negative so he took that as the truth. Recently his partner had a new test. Again it came back not detected but Chase was weary this time and questioned it. The test not only said not detected it said .2 within range. Turns out both test his partner had were viral load tests and the doctor knew this. It also turns out that Chase' partner has about 20 years of nto detected viral load tests and he says "No one ever told him he was positive."

 

Who is Chase supposed to believe? What should he do? This is a cry for help!!!!!!!!! :():

Innocence and a lack of desire make people wise. Once you perceive a thing straightforwardly, with a clear mind and no obstacles, you will discover that your rescources are inexhaustible. This is because your heart is connected to and in harmony with the order of the universe. -Ai WeiWei

Because our psyche and souls rarely have the oppurtunity to experience---but seeing and experiencing are the major source of intellect---these become inherent resources, and they are provided by mere existence. -Ai WeiWei

Show Up and Get the Work Done: From Endogenous Series, 2010 - 2012

 

Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up and get the work done. If you wait around for clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you're not going to make an awful lot of work." -Chuck Close

 

David S Pollack becomes Chuck Close with the help of some Method Acting skills he attempts to visually and conceptually reinterpret the words and idea of this conceptual artist using this very quote of Mr Close's, Information he has studied and even traits he picked when briefly meeting Chuck as an art dealer in Chelsea before Pollack decided to abandon his Art Dealer to pursue his life's goal to become a Conceptual Artist.

 

David S Pollack aka Chase Alias hopes to bring to light with his new Endogenous Series how backwards moving our cultural standards have become. As an Immersionist he look back in envy at the freedoms which artists used to be able to express themselves without having to worry about cultural and even legal action being taken against them.

 

Immersionism is a young art movement which combines Lewittian Conceptualism with Method Acting practices and principles. Stanislavsky and Strasberg Acting Methods which utilize sense memory and affective memory are an Immersionist's base. Lewittian Conceptualism adheres to the ideal that the medium is not the message, the idea becomes a machine that makes the art.

Chase Alias aka David S Pollack hopes to bring to light with his new series, "Chase Alias' Esoterically Speaking Causes his Reclusively Being, 2010-2012", just how backwards moving our cultural standards seem to be.

"Getting Chase" is the new Biographical Pictorial about Conceptualist and Method Artist David S. Pollack by Chase Alias, Holden Vance III, Cubby and David S. Pollack. Coming soon to wherever book are sold.

 

No one has been able to quite figure out Chase Alias and his visionary take on Conceptual New Media Visual Art, but many have tried. So in the following few I will attempt to sum up a man who, according to his own words, lives every day like Lil’ Wayne said, “Life aint’ no rehearsal, the camera’s always on.” Such Right brained thinking, mixed with Chase Alias’ natural-born limited depth perception has created a marvelous cocktail. It’s a very smooth drinkable Popular Method Actor with an esoteric hint of Ultra Contemporary Conceptual Artist. This sort of pop sensation blend is primed to take our blog centric media crazy culture by storm and Chase Alias is at the forefront of a new generation of young artist’ totally rethinking what art and even what existence is.

 

Yes, Chase’s work is odd. Totally fresh and unique some might say. But what more can you hope for great art. Great Conceptual Artists “Are” simply better

The actor creates with his own flesh and blood all those things which all the arts try in some way to describe.

-Lee Strasberg

The universe's reality is limited and ruthless; humankind's reality is comparatively psychological and emotional, indeterminate, difficult to ponder, idealistic, and self-centered. As for a familiarity with self, isn't being cognizant of one's own personal feelings and psychology even more perplexing and fascinating? -Ai WeiWei

 

Ai Weiwei. Ai Weiwei's Blog: Writings, Interviews, and Digital Rants, 2006-2009 (Writing Art)

I finally figured out that the interesting idea about reaching for something divine, trying to do something extraordinary in art and never quite being able to reach that. That the really messed up part of constantly doing that wasn't the idea that you couldnt reach something perfect. It was that you spent all your time reaching for something perfect and you forget to actually touch any of the human beings around you. - Adam Duritz, "Counting Crows, When I Dream of Michelangelo, iTunes Lives from SoHo"

Once photography has broken away from its original function as technique or means for documentation, it is merely a fleeting state of existence that has been transformed into one possible reality. It is this transformation that makes photography a kind of movement and gives it it's distinct significance: it is merely one type of existence. -Ai WeiWei

Lewittian Conceptualism adheres to the ideal that the medium is not the message, the idea becomes a machine that makes the art.

 

By turning the camera on himself, and selecting the photographic Genre of self-portraiture, David Pollack is attempting to create a canon of works consisting of probing, surprising, and thoughtful images. Although, the majority of his photographs are pictures of him, however, these photographs are most definitely not self-portraits. Rather, Pollack uses himself as a vehicle for commentary on a variety of issues of the modern world. Pollack employs acting, in particular method acting, to create characters and lifestyles in which these characters choose to exist. He employs concepts of method acting to create characters, such as Chase Alias. He lives his life completely immersed in these characters lifestyles for years before building his installations ands then finally photographing himself as these characters.

I do not have a clear style, nor would I limit myself to popular ones. Lif is more exuberant, more meaningful than any style imaginable. -Ai WeiWei

If you believe in public taste, you must have sufficient faith in the people. If the public can become infatuated with a piece of fabric dyed red with chemical pigments. then it definitely can love-or at least understand-a concrete barrel.

The public's normal state is one of numbness, but if you stimulate the public , it will reap a sense of happiness. -Ai WeiWei

Basehouse: A Meditation/ Playplace for Cubby.

Who is cubby and why is he meditating and/ or playing in this space? To further understand these things you must first grab hold of Cubby’s remote control. Walk slowly and carefully through his mazelike world. Look closely at all of his visual ramblings. Turn his world on and off using his remote. Sit where he sat while he thought about the world around him and while he did “other” things. Create a rhythm with the lights and sounds using the remote as he did and become part of this work of art yourself. Just as the artist David Pollack did when he created ithe character named Cubby

Chase Alias' Feelings of Unfamiliarity

 

...No matter whether or not we are convinced of the information that is present to us, every bit is useless in allying our doubts about the likelihood of the photograph. Analyzing light, density and amounts causes logic and emotion to become dissociated amid a dependance on facts and feelings of unfamiliarity. -Ai WeiWei

"Emotional recall" is the basis for Lee Strasberg's Method Acting. "Sense memory" is used to refer to the recall of physical sensations surrounding emotional events (instead of the emotions themselves). The use of affective memory remains a controversial topic in acting theory. (Wikipedia 2010)

Chase Alias attempts to get into the mind state of Conceptual Artists Ai Weiwei particularly embracing some of his ideals and philosophies. This work is particularly inspired by the activist artist's struggles and triumphs throughout the year.

 

David S Pollack aka Chase Alias hopes to bring to light with his new Endogenous Series how backwards moving our cultural standards have become. As an Immersionist he look back in envy at the freedoms which artists used to be able to express themselves without having to worry about cultural and even legal action being taken against them.

Photography is a deceitful and dangererous medium: and medium is method, it is signifigance, a ubiquitous feast of hope, or a hopelessly impassable ditch.

Basehouse: A Meditation/ Playplace for Cubby.

Who is cubby and why is he meditating and/ or playing in this space? To further understand these things you must first grab hold of Cubby’s remote control. Walk slowly and carefully through his mazelike world. Look closely at all of his visual ramblings. Turn his world on and off using his remote. Sit where he sat while he thought about the world around him and while he did “other” things. Create a rhythm with the lights and sounds using the remote as he did and become part of this work of art yourself. Just as the artist David Pollack did when he created the character named Cubby.

 

By turning the camera on himself, and selecting the photographic Genre of self-portraiture, David Pollack is attempting to create a canon of works consisting of probing, surprising, and thoughtful images. Although, the majority of his photographs are pictures of him, however, these photographs are most definitely not self-portraits. Rather, Pollack uses himself as a vehicle for commentary on a variety of issues of the modern world. Pollack employs acting, in particular method acting, to create characters and lifestyles in which these characters choose to exist. He employs concepts of method acting to create characters, such as Cubby. He lives his life completely immersed in these characters lifestyles for years before building his installations ands then finally photographing himself as these characters. His final artworks are stunning full scale installation, sculpture and photography as seen here in Basehouse: A Meditation/ Playplace for Cubby.

 

This work of Immersion art is performed by Chase Alias and photographed by David Pollack. Immersion Artistist David Pollack spends years developing his characters. The development of these two characters happened over a period of 7 years. Cubby's Basehouse and then Chase Alias' Craigslist are David's newest series of works.

 

Immersion Art, Method Acting s a phrase that loosely refers to a family of techniques by which actors try to create in themselves the thoughts and emotions of their characters in an effort to develop lifelike performances. It can be contrasted with more classical forms of acting, in which actors simulate thoughts and emotions of their character through external means, such as vocal intonation or facial expression without psychological involvement on their playing role. Though not all Method actors use the same approach, the "method" in Method acting usually refers to the practice, advocated by Lee Strasberg, by which actors draw upon their own emotions and memories in their portrayals, aided by a set of exercises and practices including sense memory and affective memory.

 

Affective memory, also known as emotional memory, is an element of Stanislavski's ‘system’ and of Method Acting, two related approaches to acting. Affective memory requires actors to call on personal memories of situations similar (or more recently a situation with similar emotional import) to those of their characters. Stanislavski believed actors needed to take emotion and personality to the stage and call upon it when playing their character. He also explored the use of objectives, the physical body's effect on emotions, and empathizing with the character.

 

"Emotional recall" is the basis for Lee Strasberg's Method Acting. "Sense memory" is used to refer to the recall of physical sensations surrounding emotional events (instead of the emotions themselves). The use of affective memory remains a controversial topic in acting theory. (Wikipedia 2010)
