1997: Primary school
I'm eleven. We are writing poetry. I wrote this:

ok I've adjusted it - it wasn't spaced that way. It had less grammar. And I can only remember the first verse exactly. I'm positive there was at least a second verse about the fly. Why do I remember it 18 years later?

It should have five verses. The final verse being about death, decay and how cold, dark, and lifeless, the fly felt after I smashed it into the living room wall with a rolled up community newspaper.

When I wrote this, the first time - in school, I didn't understand it.

By the time I was eight I was convinced there was no God. I knew there couldn't be. Nothing made sense about the bible. Even metaphorically it doesn't work. Unless metaphor means: "Something else completely."

Speaking of theology. The first verse is about Intelligent Design.

Art is the exploration of, and subsequent recording of the subconscious in whatever medium chosen. Language, Drawing, Painting, Sculpting, Photography, Film making, VIDEO GAMES.

Art is still not properly valued, recognised, or understood in society.

  1. Wooahh! Has someone 'reported' your animation?! Presumably, it was another (jealous) artist?! I'm intrigued!!

    1. They were reported via a third party on behalf of HBO and RGS media (ricky gervais studio). I'm 99.9% sure an automated process led to them wrongly being flagged as infringing copyright - it was at the time the HBO animated series came out (They had been online several months). I don't think an artist gets jealous. Especially not of a struggling student trying to figure things out. It was about $$$ and substandard technology.
