A flower pattern is forgetting where you are for a second. It’s not paying attention to detail, or even caring. It’s about wasting time, just to do it.
Time is money, and money doesn’t matter.
Adrian Saenz is a visual artist living in Oakland, CA. Flower Pattern is a video/audio project regarding everyday consciousness and mass reality. Contact at

“Danger to The System” series is a sound and mixed media performance series compiled by curator in residence Malocculsion / Anti- Art Collective. “Danger to the System” brings forth youthful, radical established and up and coming sound, visual and performance artists working in a myriad of refined strategies and structures to subvert the violent, racist, sexist political climate that has dominated the art and performance world for far too long. This series is a call to listening, action, and resistance through sound, image, and text. For more information please visit proartsgallery.org and www.ratskin.org
