Declare Independence is a course of action by REVOLT2DIE and GJYD.
Declare Independence attempts to shed light on issues and create social change by the manipulation of ideas and emotions in order to shift focus onto otherwise hidden agendas or social injustices using elements of truth, irony, humor and satire. Declare Independence is meant to target closed-mindedness, prejudice, hatred and unquestioning thinking. Declare Independence deconstructs the status quo and attacks the misuse of power by media, government, business and religion.
REVOLT2DIE is a bold provocative political art action created for the worldwide web (as animated gifs, youTUBE videos, and website) and screen-printed ephemera for the streets. REVOLT2DIE is an awareness and support program that helps aid in awaking awareness to break free from the fears ridding the allegiance to a ruler, prison, government, or belief, and help aid in confronting the logic and nonsensical value of money (specifically US-dollar). REVOLT2DIE visionary artist’s actions appeared prophetically in early 2008, before the October finance-crisis began tossing the world into disaster. Fortunately, REVOLT2DIE already let us participate in the joy of burning money which some believe help aid the financial crisis. revolt2die.com
GJYD is the dark side of Perceptive Terrorism--creation-through-destruction--it cannot serve any Party, nor any nihilism, nor even art itself. Just as the banishment of illusion enhances awareness, so the demolition of the world of discourse- of the Other. Serving only consciousness, attentiveness, and awareness, going beyond paranoia, beyond deconstruction--the ultimate criticism--physical attack on offensive art. The slightest taint of petty ego-icity or personal taste spoils its purity & vitiates its force. GJYD can never seek power--only release it. GJYD seeks to damage institutions that use art to diminish consciousness & profit by delusion.
