Alex Grey's performance art

About: multimedia - alex grey

Chilling sounds & more... I remember air raid sirens in an exibition at the Civil Defense building near Exposition Park in LA as a kid ~ 8 years old. The exhibition was what it would be like if an atomic bomb were go off. What to do etc.
"Suddenly Mrs. X awakens, stands up and turns back the clock.  She turns off the alarm and vomits up the money, then leads Mr. X to do the same."
h
























I wonder if Alex Grey could have made the point a lot more pungent if he had rolled the clock back a little further ? This 9 meg movie is to be found under the title Wasteland on the Alex Grey website. I wonder what this means ? Perhaps misplaced priorities during life?

"Two paths lie before us, one leads to death, the other to life...   One day we will make our choice. Either we will sink into the final coma and end it all or, as I trust and believe, we will awaken to the truth of our peril, a truth as great as life itself, and, like a person who has swallowed lethal poison but shakes off his stupor at the last moment and vomits the poison up to cleanse the earth of nucear weapons."  ..

.... according to the website


Mark de LA says
The "love of money" not "money" is the root of all evil. Money is one those socially defined memes with a lot of baggage attached. To some it is materialism,  Mammon & evil. To others it is power. And still to others it is grease for the wheels of the cart on the journey of accomplishing one's purpose in life, but NOT the purpose!

"Only After The Last Tree Has Been Cut Down,
Only after The Last River Has Been Poisoned,
Only after The Last Fish Has Been Caught,
Only Then Will You Find That Money Cannot Be Eaten."
