ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

the pulse - chapter three

the pulse --- chapter three
a gathering of artists' VOICE

Y'all know Seth, over at the altered page, right? Well, he's putting finishing touches on Chapter 3 of The Pulse - his on-line (and TOTALLY BOOKWORTHY) compilation of artist surveys. This time he asks us, among other things, "Can ya ever part with your art?"
The urban distress photograph shown above is one of Seth's luscious New York City series, and it's graphically emblematic of what he gives to each of us, as artists.
