Featured Artist: Michael Hart


Elastic City: M♥, i'm not sure if this finds you in new york or barcelona. anyway: you live impulsively with a poetry that's both passionate, and in pre$ent-day new york, perhaps masochistic. even when i see doubt in your photos, it's couched in a celebration of the body. so, there's an honesty and also an optimism. do you agree with any of this, and where are you now?



Michael Hart:



NEW YORK






BARCELONA





IMPULSIVELY





PASSIONATE





PRE$ENT-DAY

A work of art is a gift, not a commodity....

Every modern artist who has chosen to labor with a gift must sooner or later wonder how he or she is to survive in a society dominated by market exchange. And if the fruits of a gift are gifts themselves, how is the artist to nourish himself, spiritually as well as materially, in an age whose values are market values and whose commerce consists almost exclusively in the purchase and sale of commodities?


- Lewis Hyde, The Gift
