I’ve been traveling through Eastern Canada for nearly a month now. Cities I’ve spent time in thus far: Montreal, Quebec City, Ottawa, Toronto, London, and Hamilton, where I am as a I type this. The only one I’d been to prior to this journey was Montreal. Hamilton is by far the weirdest of the lot (more on that in a future post). Tomorrow I will leave Canada for a bit and re-enter the US at Detroit. It will be interesting to see what the all of artists who migrated to Detroit after it pretty much fell apart have done with the city.

"Envy or resentment is only possible when you cannot see your own space-time location. Most of the people in America do not know where they really are so they envy someone else’s deal."

"If I do not submit to the conventions of society, if in my dress I do not conform to the customs observed in my country and in my class, the ridicule I provoke, the social isolation in which I am kept, produce, although in an attenuated form, the same effects as punishment"
Émile Durkheim (via consciousking10)

By copyrighting his property as an artwork, he has prevented oil companies from drilling on it.

Peter Von Tiesenhausen has developed artworks all over his property in northern Alberta.  There’s a boat woven from sticks that is gradually being reclaimed by the land; there is a fence that he adds to each year of his life, and there are many “watching” trees, with eyes scored into their bark.

Oil interests pester him continually about drilling on his land.  His repeated rebuffing of their advances lead them to move toward arbitration.  They made it very clear that he only owned the top 6 inches of soil, and they had rights to anything underneath.  He then, off the top of his head, threatened them that he would sue damages if they disturbed his 6 inches, for the entire property is an artwork.  Any disturbance would compromise the work, and he would sue.

Immediately after that meeting, he called a lawyer (who is also an art collector) and asked if his intuitive threat would actually hold legally.  The lawyer visited, saw the scope of the work on the property, and wrote a document protecting the artwork.

The oil companies have kept their distance ever since.

This is but one example of Peter’s ability to negotiate quickly on his feet, and to find solutions that defy expectations.

I feel like this is really important.
