How Many People Know me as Chase?
I never planned to create my art in any style or fashion.. However once i realized exactly what i was doing and how it came to be a part of my cannon. The concepts and philosophies found in New Journalism just seemed to be the best way to describe my process. Especially Immersionism where the writer becomes a part of the situation and speaks from a deeply personal perspective. In todays climate of Media Control, taking an alternative approach to journalism and non-fiction is seen as wrong. Our system teaches writers that any style other than "the facts and nothing but the facts", will find a truly creative thinker, on the wrong side of a veritable blacklist. In today's tech savvy world we call it "White-Listed". And too many writers, Journalists and New Media Artists have for one reason or another fallen perfectly into line with the very system many railed against in their more idealistic youth.
Well its that very need to express myself and to shout as loudly as possibly. The social hypocrisy and injustices our so called "Polite Society" is plagued by have become have become accepted and perpetuated. In fact as I explore the world around me I realize that very few are unaffected by this propaganda machine we call a free world. And the weirdest part is, I was never political or even selfless, or so I thought. But It was necessity which lead me to begin creating pseudonyms , complete character sketches and even following strict Method Acting principal's such as Sense Memory and the triggered Affective Memory, in order to properly Immerse myself into the sad world in which we call advanced. When I created Chase Alias i quickly`realized there was a sort of magical charisma to him, exactly what i needed to stir up interesting responses in the company i kept. Such strong, immediate and quite diverse reactions from almost everyone. And the strangest part was the ability Chase seemed to have to create this energy from even the simplest and most mundane of stimuli.
So when you create something from next to nothing it's very magical. Its a true alchemy and the closest to a Mimesis I have and probably will ever experience.
Humans are Mimetic beings. Feeling the urge to create text (art) which represents life itself. -Aristotle
