This piece of marker art comes from our pen pal of paranoid postcards fame, an anarchist co-conspirator who keeps the jobs of postal workers so much more interesting. One of the best envelopes had a quote attributed to Bertolt Brecht: Art is not a mirror held up to reality but a hammer with which to shape it. We wouldn’t call it a total theory of art, but it gets you thinking about the ways in which you can transform your life and your world through art.
Live without dead time is a pretty awesome quote, too. What if every bit of your time on this planet was alive, creative, or meaningful? This piece reminds us and inspires us. We hung it near the drawing we put up instead of a clock.
