thoughts on artists..

July 30, 2011

“Artists to my mind are the real architects of change, and not the political legislators who implement change after the fact.” – William S. Burroughs

“Nothing exists until it is observed. The artist observes something invisible to others, and puts on paper or canvas something that did not exist until he observed it.” John Wheeler, from Recognition Physics. (Whatever the hell that is. Good quote though).

Been watching “William S. Burroughs: A Man Within.”

Getting some great quotes. It was Burroughs who brought up this saying by John Wheeler.

Burroughs.. in my opinion a rather perverse man in some ways, but quite inspiring in others.

What will I be like when I’m an old man? I’ve been wondering about that lately.. I’d like to be as creative as that guy before he shucked off his mortal coil.
