A Note Left By A Gang of Artistic Dust-Mites Who've Been Living Inside Your Computer
The above is the first artwork known to have been produced by The League of Artistic Dust-Mites.
Below is their manifesto calling for the end of technology and the resurgence of "L'art pour l'art."
Dear Computer User/Landlord/Sheep:
Let us introduce ourselves! We are a bohemian troupe of highly evolved and singularly creative dust-mites. We are visual and performance artists hellbent on universal recognition and respect in the human art community. For months now your Mac Pro tower has been both our cozy home and our studio. Do you like what we've done with the place? It's a mix media artwork comprised of hard drive, magnets, white-out, desire, and oil paint. It's avant-garde.
As dust-mites, we've had a unique perspective to observe you and your kind acting as slaves to these powerful, humming boxes. Our art installation, "Dust-Mite, Lust-Night, Computer Prison Edenville," will change not only the way the world views performance art -- but also change how civilization understands technology -- but even moreover, change how man regards dust-mite. Change! Change! Change!
We dust-mites we be marginalized no more! This is our artistic manifesto! We are taking over. Dust-mite by dust-mite. Computer by computer...
Behold the onset of the bohemian dust-mite revolution!
