escritos de los años 80.

Subiré al álbum mas escritos, poemas, cuentos reales, algunos surrealistas, un ensayo con mi filosofía y por último " un poeta sobre mi mesa ", éste lo comencé a escribir en el Forense Municipal, una " amiga " me pidió que le acompañara a una de sus clases de medicina, me llevé una bata blanca y me hice pasar por estudiante, una experiencia más.

Era en la calle Uruguayana de Montevideo, me acuerdo que cuando subí al ómnibus la gente se apartaba de mi, no por mi aspecto, mas bien por el…

RE:Artists Unite Website

The Artists Unite Website has been shut down for a couple of weeks due to errant maleware, and we just had it fixed. Apologies to those of you who tried to log on via the website and could not do so. However the Ning Membership Network was still open, therefore many of you may not have even noticed. If this should happen again, just go to artistsunite.ning.com. Thank you, Rosa (director AU)

My Mission

My mission is to help individuals, families and communities to de-colonize (de-authoritarianism) and to re-indigenize (re-democratism) through music, ritual, house concerts and workshops where we ‘wage creativity’. Ours is an Age of Magnification, a time between world views, between the late-modern world view and the emerging participatory world view.

Rosa at Rio (ManhattanTimes Exhibit Review)

This is a review of my current exhibit, "...what is my function?" and I am grateful to Ruth Lilenstein-Gatton, the reviewer for so perfectly  capturing what I consider my function. Although the word "function" is somewhat technological, and my preference would have been "meaning/purpose" I use it as part of a direct quote that appears in the installation. …
