    In 1918, his art was to change dramatically as a direct consequence of Germany’s economic, political and military collapse at the end of the First World War.
    “In the war, things were in terrible turmoil. What I had learned at the academy was of no use to me and the useful new ideas were still unready…. Everything had broken down and new things had to be made out of the fragments; and this is Merz. It was like a revolution within me, not as it was, but as it should have been.

    Everyone is raving about the Clock

    Most unusually, for a work of conceptual art, this masterpiece of montage is deliriously entertaining. It’s also totally functional — a working timepiece of incredible precision.

    Praise Shark or Snark

    Ride the Flarf Fixie and visit the Snark Market.

    Flarf and Snark flarfsnark
    My Geisha Cacti are posing as Flarf and Snark. They have been out of work and were not getting enough attention from the public. In real life they are neither flarfy nor snarky, they enjoy being competent, useful and being professional.

    Flarf is in glory hole according to Gary Sullivan

    Tao Lin tried to replace Flarf with something else in 2007, not too successfuly. (Previously we went Diving with Tao Lin)

    Here is One dollor shark gift from Jurgen who jurgenrabbithas been scouting for a new funfinfin location in Potrero Hill.

    Watch Charlie Rose goes beserk defending snarky Maureen Dawd from this interview with David Denby who was promoting his new book called Snark. (Skip to inaugural poem remix if you had enough of Charlie.)

    Someone is trying to make noise. (Is it Kenneth Goldsmith?)

    Begin Cotton Lettuce glittering edifices (Like this more than the others)

    Defuge Flarf – don’t know who made this tape. Not by Alan Sondheim

    The texts are mine, defuge is a concept I’ve worked with, but I have no idea who did the video – wish I did – Alan (via email)

    And, of that word, defuge, he writes elsewhere:

    fetishization transformed into discard, disgust, the image no longer working, _that_ body used up in masturbation. It is so common that a word is necessary here, the _defuge,_ defuse / refuge / deluge / refuse, de-light, de-flower. Rhyme patterns, frames, defuges; it is the defuge that draws the poem forward beyond return
