My subject has learned in her #surfing training that mastering the waves on flat days increases her skills for the good ones. This was one of the former days.
Her descriptive of flatness brought to my mind thoughts of the ordinary and the #banal , a term derived from early French and German terms that implied a rising up against something objectionable. #creativity on the waves and in the studio invariably demands an overcoming of these unacceptable things relegated to the realms of the flat and the ordinary. It is in this process of surmounting the banal and the boring that the truest #art resides. It is of this humbling journey that #symbolist#nobellaureate#author#andregide refers to in his above-cited words.
Often when I consider the important place of the banal in my own situational process, I think about the perverse use of the term by #artist#jeffkoons . While he imagines otherwise (with the mainstream #artworld in his tow like some latter day #piedpiper ), there is nothing banal for a child about witnessing the #magic of a balloon being contorted into a puppy. Koons’ inflated (in scale, as of course, in price) simulations of these wonders of childhood lead us towards the uninspiring dead end that is the destination of unexplored banality. My #drawing , while primarily a reflection upon my ongoing situational relationship, is also a modest attempt at restoring some of the mystery reaching beyond the too-often banal in #contemporaryart . #thecasehistories @savethewavescoalition
Следуй за звуком флейты, следуй за этой песней
Это может быть немного рискованно, но я буду очень милым
Я здесь, чтобы спасти тебя, я здесь, чтобы уничтожить и возродить тебя
Ты та, кто призывает меня - это так мило
Следи за звуком флейты #piedpiper#피리소릴
Throwback to March 2018, during an expedition to explore the coral communities in deep water off Lord Howe Island. This particular site was located south of Balls Pyramid, with clear blue oceanic waters. During the ascent, hordes of Galapagos Whalers gathered in the current, curious about what we were up to. They were particularly interested in my colleague, Sonia Rowley. Her closed circuit rebreather meant no bubbles to scare the sharks, & I recon they were curious about what was in the sample bags.
These sharks were perfect calm, & were always good company during long stops on the ascent line.
Courtesy of the ridiculous resolution on the #nikon#d850 you can see over 70 sharks in the full image; a sea of noses following their scientific pied-piper into the blue.

A federal judge ordered #RKelly held without bond Tuesday in #Chicago on federal charges he paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to recover child-sex tapes and pressured witnesses to change their stories before his Cook County pornography trial ended in an acquittal a decade ago.
The decision by U.S. District Judge Harry Leinenweber means the embattled R&B singer will remain in custody whenever he’s taken to New York to face a separate indictment alleging he sexually abused underage girls across the country.
In ordering Kelly to remain jailed, Leinenweber said the singer’s attorneys did not overcome a presumption that a defendant facing child pornography charges be detained pending trial.
Kelly’s attorney, Steven Greenberg, argued that his client did not pose a danger to the public because most of the charges were more than a decade old. He also contended Kelly wasn’t a risk to flee, citing his regular attendance at past court dates.
But federal prosecutors called Kelly, 52, an “extreme danger” in seeking his detention. Story developing || Follow @hamptonbluenetwork
😂😂😂🤣 Short story: If you zoom in, you’ll see that little peepee running away and telling others to flee...but flee they did not. They followed the #PiedPiper and pipe they did...to their death! @yagalifefacts
