HOLZER’S TWITTERINGS

February 13, 2008

SO FROM THE ARTIST THAT EXPRESSED “USE WHAT IS DOMINANT IN A CULTURE TO CHANGE IT QUICKLY” COMES JENNY HOLZER’S TWITTER PAGE. ONE OF HER RECENT ENTRIES IS:

“DECENCY IS A RELATIVE THING 01:17 AM January 28, 2008

WHICH IS SUBTLE BUT I’D LIKE TO THINK MEANS SOME PEOPLE WILL PUT UP WITH A LOT OF RUDENESS WHILE OTHER’S WON’T. NOW I CAN’T HELP THINKING – HEY – ISN’T THIS TWITTER POST FROM HER TRUISMS (1978-1983)? IS THIS ANOTHER LAYER OF MEANING OR JUST ANOTHER MEDIUM BEING EXPLORED?

THEN I’M THINKING – HEY – WHERE ARE THE TEXT MESSAGE POSTS? IF THE TRUISMS ARE TO BE PROPAGATED THROUGH TWITTER AND CELL PHONES DON’T THEY NEED TO BE RE-CAST AS TXT MSG SHORTHAND? I MEAN LOOKING AT ONE LISTING YOU CAN SEE STUFF LIKE:

BPLM – BIG PERSON LITTLE MIND

CRTLA – CAN’T REMEMBER THE THREE-LETTER ACRONYM

CUOL – SEE YOU ON-LINE

DWWWI – SURFING THE WEB WHILE INTOXICATED

WHICH COMPLETELY MAKES ME THINK OF SIMILAR SHORTHAND FOR THE TRUISMS. I MEAN IF OFFENSIVE GREETINGS, OBSCURE REFERENCES, GEEKY SNARK, MISOGYNIST QUIPS AND FAMILIAR PHRASES CAN BE TXT MSG-IZED CAN’T CREATIVE WORKS? I’D LIKE TO SEE SOME TWITTER POSTS LIKE:

PMFWIW – PROTECT ME FROM WHAT I WANT

MANMBN – MEN ARE NOT MONOGAMOUS BY NATURE

AOPCANS – ABUSE OF POWER COMES AS NO SURPRISE

WHICH WOULD BE COOL; OBSCURE, TRUE TO THE ORIGINAL, AND PORTED TO THE WIRELESS TWITTER-BOUND PHASE OF WE STILL DIDN’T KNOW HOW MUCH TO SHARE AT THAT POINT. AND TO CLOSE THE POST, YES I LIKE LOTS OF OTHER PEOPLE DIG HOLZER BUT WRITING THIS UNLEASHES THE NEED TO APHORIZE.

    A BRAIN IS A TERRIBLE THING TO TASTE.

    ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT FOREST FILING.

    EVERYONE HAS SOMETHING USELESS TO SAY.

    MOST OF US THINK WITH OUR MOUTHS OPEN.
