Remember when

Remember when we said college will make it all better
Remember when we looked forward to the years In between
Remember when you would tell me about all your problems
Remember when you were the only thing in my mind
Remember when we talked
Remember when we stopped
Remember our goodbye
Remember how we all started?…
Now look at us
We’ve fallen apart

This photo is of my town, it’s in quite a poor part and when I passed it on the bus I really realised how true it is

“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her.  She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.  
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly.  “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.” 
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”

this is why performance art is important


So every single person who told me ‘ignore them they’ll go away’ and ‘you can’t let them know they bothered you’ and ‘They’ll stop if they don’t see you react’ and all that bull shit, my entire school career, I want you to look good and hard at this.
I want you to think about what you said.
What you keep saying.
What you are telling your children.
You are making them powerless.


I saw this post on my main blog and thought it was very interesting and relevant to this blog. Sorry if it might be a tad revealing, but this imagine is not meant to be sexual in any way shape or form. If this post makes anyone uncomfortable, contact one of the admins and they can delete it.
This post not only deals with victim passivity in general, but I think might also say something about the way that women (especially visually appealing women) are treated by society.  I wonder if the art subject’s shirt would have been removed had she been of a different ethnicity, or heavier, or less visually appealing, or even a man. The way that the people around her reacted when she approached them after all was said and done said even more about the way our society views victims.
For those who would like to read more about the experiment, here is a link that leads to one of the many articles about Marina Abramovic’s performances.

iv learned something upsetting about society. its the fact that when you meet someone new for the first time, you have to establish who has the dominance right at the beginning. unfortunately you have to speak to them like you are better then them, or above them so that THEY dont walk over you. unless you establish that you mean business, they will be the boss.
i say this with experience, if you act innocent and forgiving. people will walk over you and treat you with disrespect.
if you act like you know what your saying and that you are the best, you will get respected.
i dont like treating people this way, but first impressions are what makes and breaks a relationship.
if you walk up vulnerable, and naked in front of someone, they will take advantage of you.
if you walk up with a AK-47 you will get respect. 
unfortunately thats how society works
i know what im saying seems really negative and harsh, but try it, and you’ll see.
