Chase Alias' :)(: Bugchaser, Repetition is Unavoidable

All love is self-love. All interpretation is self-interpretation. The value of "interpretation" is that through it, one might expose reality, or explain oneself. But interpretation is also reality, and it's practice is likewise an event. Reinterpreting a very common truth is one of the pleasures of our game. It is neccessary to spare no pains in interpreting, for no matter how we change, we are all forever expounding on a basic truth. No matter whether or not we are willing, repetition is unavoidable. -Ai WeiWei

When Chase Alias first Posted this Social Commentary Artwork "Bug Chaser" He Would Have Never Imagined That He would Become the Target of an Evil Vindictive Bug Chase!

But who is to blame. Chase Alias has found himself in an awful position this morning. He has been in a loving monogamous relationship of over a year. At the beginning of the relationship both partners did the responsible thing or so he thought/ They both went to the same doctor and supposedly both had HIV tests.

Chase Alias' test came back negative and that was great. His partners came back not detected and Chase was told by the doctor that meant negative so he took that as the truth. Recently his partner had a new test. Again it came back not detected but Chase was weary this time and questioned it. The test not only said not detected it said .2 within range. Turns out both test his partner had were viral load tests and the doctor knew this. It also turns out that Chase' partner has about 20 years of nto detected viral load tests and he says "No one ever told him he was positive."

Who is Chase supposed to believe? What should he do? This is a cry for help!!!!!!!!! :():

Conceptual Artist and Method Actor.

All love is self-love. All interpretation is self-interpretation. The value of "interpretation" is that through it, one might expose reality, or explain oneself. –Ai WeiWei

The very purpose of spirituality is self-discipline. Rather than criticizing others, we should evaluate and criticize ourselves. Ask yourself, what am I doing about my anger, my attachment, my pride, my jealousy? These are the things we should check in our day to day lives. -Dalai Lama

"I try to see myself as a sacrifice, just to show the kids they ain't the only ones who up at night." -Kid Cudi

'In conceptual art the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work. When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair. The idea becomes a machine that makes the art. ” —Sol LeWitt
