Sensual Art Installation
Erik Ravelo’s The Lana Sutra is a sensual art installtion depicting 15 different yarn sculptures in various love-making positions as a homage to love. The installation is a dedication to desire for an equal and sharing society.
I wonder if people every go crazy from trying to convince others that they’re crazy. It’s a fun thought to entertain. I bet that’s what happens to some method actors. They become so involved in their fantasy that it becomes real. But if that can happen, doesn’t that throw away the notion of personality altogether? Is all human personality tabula rasa? Do our minds attract thoughts like static cling?
"that corpse you planted last year in your garden,
has it begun to sprout? will it bloom this year?
or has the sudden frost disturbed its bed?"

Now, while I do love Bukowski, I must counter. I fear he has conflated the notion of love with that of lust. How very egotistical this statement is. “Love more.” The magnitude with which you love somebody is not the result of some fated compatibility, but rather the result of how well people are able to reconcile the selfishness of their own ego with the selfishness of another. And therein, vice versa. With this, if you have tempered your ego to love selflessly, without expectations nor need for reciprocation, you will fall madly in love with whomever you consciously, or subconsciously, choose. The key term for love is cultivation. The key term for lust is desire. Lust is a matter of circumstance. Of environment, chemical reaction, expectation and physicality.

"How can you say you love one person when there are ten thousand people in the world that you would love more if you ever met them? But you’ll never meet them. All right, so we do the best we can. Granted. But we must still realize that love is just the result of a chance encounter. Bukowski is fostering mentalities wherein young romantics idealize the ungratefulness of self-created victims. “If only my circumstances were…” This is such a shame, because love is certainly one mental landscape that is dependent upon perception,"
