In 2007 paramedics were called to a car accident involving a Venezuelan man named Carlos Camejo, Despite the devestating accident Mr Camejo had survived..
He remained unconscious but with a couple of bruises he was relatively unharmed. Unfortunately, he wasn’t sent to hospital; the paramedics had filled out the wrong form and sent him to the morgue instead. As medical examiners started to perform his autopsy Carlos woke up screaming as the first incision was made to his face. His wife who had been informed of his death arrived to claim his body, but instead found him alive but severely shaken waiting for her outside the morgue.

There are times when one has to go a bit out of #context in order to stay in it. #detocqueville ‘s intention may have been slightly different in writing these words, but they do shed additional light on my #subject ‘s #message .
It was entitled “Pioneers of #television “ and its manifest content was precisely along those lines. Of course, the humorous conclusion, in the voice of “good authority” to , in effect, turn off the #tv and go outdoors brought the text to another, deeper level of meaning and related to the recently evolving themes of authority.
We are raised to admire the #pioneer and often emulate what seems pioneering about our parents and siblings. As such, even to be truly inventive or creative involves a process of #identification with existing role models. The desire of the #explorer , #scientist or #artist to be pioneering, to head off into #terraincognita is a reversal in the #unconscious , intimately bound to its opposite, the known, particularly whatever may be unknown about the seemingly familiar.
My work process is loosely designed along the lines of a scientific experiment for a variety of reasons. Is not one of them to create in a pioneering manner? Is that something my subject is sensing in the #transference here?
It may not be a few volumes of #shakespeare , but we never journey entirely alone as the influence of our own pioneers are ever present, both to inspire and to overcome.
Det omedvetna är och förblir ett mysterium. Vaknade med ett ryck klockan två i natt med orden POPOL VUH ringandes i huvudet. Har inte tänkt på det bandet på över 40 år! Om ens då. Jag lovar!
