To all those employed in videotaping us from every roof, cop van and supermarket in the name of security. To all those who forbid us to videotape them and their premises in the name of private property. To those who pollute every inch of our view with meaningless advertising text and image and then forbid us to write on the walls. To those who bombard us with visual information but forbid us to reproduce that information in the name of copywright.To those who censor, suppress and restrict the transmission and exhibition of film and video in the name of public safety.
The No Wave underground replaces security with curiousity. Our visions cannot be owned, blinded or erased. The proliferation of cheap cinematic and televisual technology will transform cinema from a mass spectacle to a street corner conversation. You might as well try to copywright sight. We will take your frigid surfaces and reconstruct them as a town on fire. Inside the bulb, before the sail, nothing is for nothing VACUUM.
