University of Montana


It is when art displaces, defamiliarizes the world around us. It is what creates, succumbs, hurts, manipulates, that is, the experience of energy. When we find words a journey begins. The language we create to experience a world to move through, the language that inhabits the travelers one meets along the way. THOUGH WE BLED METICULOUSLY is when we choose to destroy, when we choose to open ourselves to destruction to see what might happen.
