    Dear Mark,

    Please forgive my contacting you directly, but I am writing to you personally to invite you to become an Artist Member of the Contemporary Art Society.

    As you may know, the Contemporary Art Society is the national organisation for contemporary collectors; through our events and activities, we promote informed and meaningful private collecting in support of artists, and fundraise to purchase works for public collections across the UK. Although our membership is largely constituted from critics, collectors, curators and enthusiasts, we have never previously offered membership to artists. On reflection, we feel that this is slightly odd, bearing in mind that artists are our primary stakeholders.

    Therefore, for the first time in our 100 year history, we are inviting a strictly limited number of artists, with whom we have either worked through our programmes – including Artfutures – or purchased through our acquisition schemes for collections, to become Artist Members of the Contemporary Art Society.

    Please note that as we are only offering a limited number of memberships, this is an invitation-only scheme exclusively for those artists with whom we have worked through our programmes, and is not open to general application.

    We view this new membership as a way of strengthening our association with those artists whose work we feel is critically engaged and of interest, and to provide advocacy for those artists to our membership through this new scheme.

    Artist membership is by invitation only and is offered at £25 per annum, simply to cover the administration of the scheme. As an Artist Member you will be listed on the Contemporary Art Society website, which is a destination for audiences interested in contemporary collecting, with a link through to images of your work and biographical details, including a statement on your practice. You will also have access to a number of events each year which bring together our Artist Members with those interested in contemporary art and collecting, as well as educational and networking events, designed to provide insight into the market for contemporary art.

    I do hope you will accept this invitation.

    Please would you kindly respond to who will be managing this new scheme.

    Hi Mark,

    Insisting a bit in what we talked today, I want to chat with you about meditative and/or hypnotic spaces, their relation with mantras (ragas for instrumental), and the possibility to have topics like these as a background in a research project. What would be these “concept’s” real relevance this days?

    I formulate this rather weird question because I’m basing my project in time perception and I’m thinking about the possibility that time is really a mind created phenomena and not a physical dimension… (…) I don’t know, I guess I ‘ve always wanted to travel in time.

    Anyway, sorry for all this rambling. A blog with just a couple of things I’ve done:
