the factory {art as religion. revolution.}

the world is dreary right now, n'est-ce pas?
we are long overdue a cultural revolution...

the brilliant minds of our generation, as they say, are wasting away. we lack hope, genius, revolt against the mundane, creativity.

this is a place to begin bringing back the abandon of warhol's factory era. of any era where art was art and life was a buzz and for the living. i have long wanted to be part of something like this, meet similar people... a fusing of great creative minds into one fabulous, caffeine-fueled explosion.

& it seems i am not alone.

obviously, this would be much better if we had the £££ to transcend the idea into reality, but everyone has to start somewhere. & if we can bring our individual parts together, here, in this small way... then maybe we can gather inspiration & hope for our dreams. so! grab the drug of your choice (be it literal or non-literal) and come be fabulous.

remember, this is not just another art community. we want revolutionary ideas, small bits of change. ideas to wake people up. poetic terrorism. etc...
