Impossibles positions readers / Imposibles posturas lectoras (ilustración de Martin Matje)
From this I reach what might be called a philosophy; at any rate it is a constant idea of mine; that behind the cotton wool is hidden a pattern; that we - I mean all human beings - are connected with this; that the whole world is a work of art; that we are parts of the work of art. Hamlet or a Beethoven quartet is the truth about this vast mass that we call the world. But there is no Shakespeare, there is no Beethoven; certainly and emphatically there is no God; We are the words; we are the music; we are the thing itself.

Arma de Instrucción Masiva (Weapon of Mass Instruction)
The weapon of mass instruction is a mobile sculpture that carries books and gift books. The ability to transport allows to receive donations from anywhere and bring them to the far corners of Argentina and the continent. In this sense, the ADIM transits through population settlements, schools, bars, rural house holds and all those places where books are not expected. the aim is the promotion of reading and encouraging creativity generated by those who read a book. The ADIM is the sculpture, also a street intervention, a unique piece of art, protest, encouragement, an image from another dimension in this set. Convey a specific message that transcends the boundaries of art and traditional art, the site of action is outside museums, cultural centers or libraries. THE ADIM has combined the art and a way to develop social work.

I just think that fiction that isn’t exploring what it means to be human today isn’t art.

Felt like doing a quick painting of Maurice Sendak. Sort of a mashup of styles.
