Dear Mayor, Councillors, CEO and Council Officers,
Draft General Local Law No. 2 –
Community Amenity and Municipal Places
As a ‘visual artist’, my engagement is with the visual.
As a ‘conceptual artist’, my engagement is with the language and meaning of sight. (“Oh, I see.”)
As a ‘performance artist’, my engagement is with Theatre of the Actors of Regard.
My engagement is with vision. With appearance, projection, illusion. With the act of regard and the actor of regard. With the mind’s eye and image-ination. The vision of the visionary. With the prospects of foresight and insight, with the lessons of hindsight and short-sightedness. With filters and with blindness. ‘Through a glass, darkly’, with the ways we fail to see or are impeded from seeing clearly and wisely. With false views and fake views. With visual perception and visual conception. With how we see stuff. Our points of view and our worldview. How we see the world into being.
How we see governs what we see. And what we thus see governs how we act next, how we respond to things.
