Today I stood still in the middle of the street all day. the city is my stage. i resisted work but emanated menace. my audience felt my powerful anarchy, the potential alchemy. i transform our city.

Etymologically, an act of expression is a squeezing out, a pressing forth.....
even in the most mechanical forms of expression there is interaction and a consequent transformation of the primitive material which stands as raw material for a product of art, in relation to what is actually pressed out. It takes the wine press as well as grapes to ex-press juice, and it takes environing and resisting objects as well as internal emotion and impulsion to constitute an expression of emotion.” (Dewey,J.Art As Experience. (1934)The Berkley Publishing Group, page.64)
