Ray Johnson

Biography

Conceptual artist connected with Neo-Dadaism, Pop Artwork, as well as the Fluxus movement and known for his experimental art. Founded the brand new York Correspondence College, a mail-art network. He went to radically progressive Dark Mountain University, where he was mentored by Josef Albers. He relocated to NEW YORK in 1949 with Richard Lippold, his enthusiast at Black Hill. He began focus on 200 silhouettes in the middle-1970s, using Andy Warhol, William S. Burroughs, and David Bowie among his topics. He ultimately retreated to his house in Locust Valley, hardly ever ever stepping back to public look at but continuing to become prolific. He was created inside a working-class community in Detroit, Michigan. He dedicated suicide at age 67. After his loss of life, filmmakers Andre Moore and John Walter developed the documentary, “How exactly to Pull a Bunny,” about his existence. He presented Roy Lichtenstein inside a collage piece.

#Quote
1Human beings don't want to just enjoy something by themselves. They want to share that emotion - they want everyone around them to enjoy it like they enjoy it or hate it like they hate it. That's what makes a video spread.
2Maybe someday, if I work hard enough, entertainment will be a career for me, but right now making videos and uploading them to the Internet is just a hobby.
3Never angrily rant into your web cam. While smashing a keyboard in half over a game of 'World of Warcraft' may seem totally justified in your head, to the rest of the known universe you look like a raging psychopath.
4One of the amazing things about the Internet is that the content creators are the gatekeepers. We can think of an idea and execute it quickly, and we didn't have to pitch the idea to a major network or convince a studio head to sign-off on the concept.
5What really shocks me, what I can honestly sit back and ponder for hours in a lot of cases is just, 'Why would you film yourself doing that? Who put you up to that? What are you getting out of that?'
6My success has been something I've worked a long time at and it's been a gradual process. I compare it to the idea of someone losing a lot of weight over a period of a few years. You don't really notice the weight loss overall but if you compare photos from then and now there's a big difference.
7As a general rule, if you are prone to melodramatic meltdowns, please avoid purchasing a webcam for any reason.
8I not only hope that YouTube channels compete with television shows for viewers and revenue, I hope they develop a bitter rivalry which could only be settled by an elaborate medieval tournament where the two entities fight to the death in a steel cage.
9At the end of the day, a television, a computer, or a smart phone is just a device through which one can access content. The content itself is what matters, not the device.
10I was influenced by a lot of stand-up comedians... Eddie Murphy back when he was doing 'Raw.' I watched that so many times as a kid, I can probably still quote the entire thing to this day. Chris Rock. Dave Chappelle. George Carlin. A lot of the guys who were sort of edgy for their time.
