|COMMENTS on NARCISSUS|
Visitor's Name: Narcissus
Comment: Hello-` Thank you for trying to make people under the story of Narcissus in many different ways. Because my name is Narcissus(I usally go by Narci) i get alot of stupid remarks from people about being conceded. But if you just look at the story from a different perspective than there is no narcissisim in that stroy at all. One thing I see is that it teaches you to have self-respect. We also must not forget the whole story, the nymph Echo goes through much more than Narcissus ever does, as far as i'm concerned. Anybody that has ever loved somebody and not been understood or rejected can relate to the suffering that she goes though. Well thanx once again. sincerly;

Comment: Hi.. I'm the creator of www.digitality.org , my name is Travis Snelling. I've been planning to define digitality in a way that could show a relatation to art and futurism. I have found your article of Globalism and Digitality Times and I it is enlightening. With your permission I would like to add the first portion of it to my website (ending with "...continue hegemonizing the culture of visuality by developed nations.") I'll await your reply, sincerely

Comment: Possibly the most extraordinary piece of writing I have read. I wish i understood it all, and am facinated by the things I don't understand! I am beginning my undergraduate paper this month, and will be using this work as basis for my research. I want to look at why (as artists) we are failing to create new ways of seeing, and why we are so frightened of moving forward. I enjoy "abstraction" greatly because it is one way of removal from "reality" but I wonder if I use the term because it's definitions are so open, or whether it is because I am berated (often) for my "it is what it is, until I can find the words to describe it". The difficulty here is that academic study of art as a student requires justification and analysis. Abstract in the terms I understand it in is specific and ironically has formula. I like to work where each action or mark inspires the next - either logically or subconsiously. - I try to understand which actions are/were which to discover why I create(d) what I do/did !! any idea what you would call that?
Will be having fun digesting narcissus and am in awe already of the realms of possibility.
