Declaration of the Artist

a performance piece by Jack Bowman


I am the one and I am not ashamed.

I am the one that stenciled my hand on the cave wall 50,000 years ago.

Yes me, and I am not ashamed.

No, I am not a descendent of the one.

I am the one.

I am the one that saw the relationships between the stones on the wall and the images in my memory.

I am the one that had that creative impulse / thought / bio-electrical connection that caused me to place my own image on the wall.

Yes, I am the one that created.

No. I was not reborn again with each generation. 

I am continuous.

The math formula in my mind or genetic trait that matched the images on the   wall with the images in my mind and caused me to create a new image on the wall has been continuous for 50,000 years.

I am the one and I am not ashamed.

I am one.

I am continuous.

I am the creator and I am not ashamed.
