"they said it couldn't be done. or maybe they thought it shouldn't be done. but it has been done. it was done, and it is done."

"because of works of art like this. I believe in abstract art. If I have not been able to justify it, I can perhaps say with the pragmatist, with the literalist: There it is. I have shown it to you. It has been done. It is being done. And because it can be done, it will be done. And now, I am done." Kirk Varnedoe, Pictures of Nothing, 2003
"In earlier times foretelling the future was the job of oracles or sibyls. These were often women, who would be put into a trance by some drug or by breathing the fumes from a volcanic vent. Their ravings would then be interpreted by the surrounding priests." Steven Hawking
Stephen Hawking also writes, "philosophy is dead. Philosophy has not kept up with modern developments in science, particularly physics."

Ahearn makes furniture out of pretzel, woodshed lava lamps, air fresheners, black hole washed-out automatic writing sci-fi doodle paintings or recording studio sound baffles, soft furniture, soft sculpture, soap sludge laboratories.  
Monochromes in the dark, washed out cosmic compost in bright light, these paintings are. Lava lamp sculpture system that keeps these paintings in the dark but also lit. 
This is how to undermine the credibility of reality: a pyramid scheme, a "pretzel scheme," to twist your salted brains inside out.
