I'm Chris. I'm many things, bound in words, dictated by boundaries, and contained by mortality. I believe life is a fleeting, meaningless shell which we must force and push on in constant change in order to give our lives drive, hope, and happiness. I'm cynical, optimistic, existentialist, and a fighter. I'm queer, a musician, and someone who is deeply involved with art and theory.
Currently, I'm finishing my MA in Philosophy of Art. Next is the PhD.
As I think of them, I should put up some maxims of my life. 1. Life is the art of living. Aesthetics, then, is important to see how to live beautifully. 2. Music is. Ponder that statement. 3. Literature is a way of forming personal ethics. 4. Friends are the most important people in your life, past that whole 'birth' thing. 5. Our identity is a web of essentials, constructs, inconsequentials, mortality, immortality, beauty, disgust, impurity, divinity, and anything else... Learn how you are made, who you are, in relation to everything, to find yourself. 6. I study art and aesthetics because I need a constant reminder of something beautiful in this world. In any sense of the wor(l)d 'beautiful.'
Things fall apart, they fall so hard. You can't ever put them back the way they were. - Tara
