Charles Toeppe: internet do you get it? i am giving up my words to metaknight for his book, but this was challenging at first because i thought the words i wrote belonged to me, but they don’t. it doesnt matter if they are in my book or his book or no book what is really beautiful and really mine and is in the book of me is the experience of writing the poem. see it’s not output that matters but going through the process the experience of creating it that’s life that is literally where life is not at the end points.

Meta Knight: i love charles toeppe’s ideas about art ownership, he expressed similar sentiments with this vido he made , saying “everyone & nobody made it”. ‘Art ownership’ is becoming an increasingly moot point with the collaboration possible thru the internet. I think those who understand thsi & r willing to share at the loss of “individualist integrity” or whatever are poised to make powerful art circa 2013
