The Delta Force

Inspired by Heraclitus (535-475 BC)'s quote, "There is nothing permanent except change." The titled responsion is

Bent Earthward We Deprive Experience

Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519)'s quote, "When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return." The titled responsion is

This one is a little bit of a stretch but I will try and push a boundary. Leonardo da Vinci's flight metaphor evokes a been-there-done-that narrative, habituated around past experience this quote seams incomplete, perhaps even a dichotomy?  

The Wellspring of the Macedonian Muses

Inspired by Luis de Góngora (1561-1627)'s quote, "A little learning is a dangerous thing; Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring". The titled responsion is...

In An Essay on Criticism (1711) from Alexander Pope, this famous quote has its history in Ovid's Metamorphasis. Look it up on Wikipedia, it's worth the read.

Liar, Liar... I object to your Honour!

Inspired by Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832)'s quote, "The power of the lawyer is in the uncertainty of the law". The titled responsion is...

When I wrote Virtue Ethics and Lawyers (2016) I compared and contrasted the effects of Hellenic virtue rhetoric to our current Jurisprudence (the study of law), I fear the statistical direction we are now headed lacks a narrative if it's needed at all!

Mobius Maker Through Peace and Harmony

Inspired by Alfred Tennyson (1809-1892)'s quote, "Ring out the old, ring in the new, Ring, happy bells, across the snow: The year is going, let him go; Ring out the false, ring in the true." The titled responsion is...

Your Passions Should Follow You

Inspired by Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844-1889)'s quote, "A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself". The titled responsion is...

Ephiphenomal manifestations projected on the stage of life act as individual agents for all to see, to bear witness and participate within. A shared consciousness​ or​ passion is a play that expresses cultures that moves us. Together and separate, the amusing muse is a fictive ​imagining ​that takes shape within and through the forme otherwise known as differentiation.

Inescapable Positions of Individuation

The merger between art and artist is ephemeral. Open for interpretation the community can contribute at will, this stage play and performance, commanded by the narrative is not a restriction but a path forward. Contribute, if you are up to the challenge. Learn more!
