“To be a warrior is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. It is rather an endless struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives. Nobody is born a warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born a reasonable being. We make ourselves into one or the other.”

A Great Divide – VC & Philanthropy

SweetClarity has me thinking about and acting to raise money required to support the project. SweetClarity aims to facilitate a new day-to-day meeting between art, artists and society – it has a manifest (which came before it’s executive summary).

That’s one way.

I suppose it’s about time I made a formal introduction of SweetClarity here at StillCreation. The best way for me to describe SweetClarity is through it’s manifest which you can read here. SweetClarity was born during the summer of 2007 shortly after Shahar & I completed our second collaboration and my first exhibition. The best way to understand SweetClarity is to experience it.
