 As time goes by, it is the established patterns of thought, the known 
arguments, the self-perpetuating truths which become the principal 
defenders of the structures in place. ..The active vocabulary needed to 
question, even to simply discuss them, has withered away.

	| The Dead-Artist Desert Trailer-Park is located in the American 
	| Southwest Desert. I basically inherited (after paying back-taxes)
	| an isolated, derelict trailer-park which is being 
	| transformed without the interference  of cultural bureaucrats 
	| into a working resource for creative pursuits. The financial 
	| overhead is practically non-existent; creative applicants are 
	| told the location of the Trailer-Park and given written permission 
	| to abide there. Usually some structural and creative contribution 
	| is made to the Park during your stay. No application fees, slides,
	| references, or resumes are required or desired. A questionnaire is
	| sent to all applicants. The current residents will invite new 
	| PERUSED NOW; an electronic response is preferred.

only the artists capable of dragging the mystic power out of themselves 
seem able to work productively within the breakdown of our society...
