about

‘feddabonn’ is a self-conscious acknowledgement of the stereotype of tribals in terms of feathers and bones, delivered in a very bad wannabe-rasta accent. originally from shillong in the hills of north east india, i now live in auckland, aotearoa new zealand. when not working this blog i am a part-time library assistant, proud house husband, and a struggling student of visual/material culture. this blog/site owes much to an earlier incarnation as bottlebroke, and is still informed by the principles of ‘breaking bottles’ that underpinned that.

thanks to geordee and blind dayze for getting this site up, and tech designs for the original (free) template. this site runs on the wordpress software.

manifesto
a) i don’t see myself as ‘creator’ or ‘creative’ in any real sense. i find the best work comes *through me rather than *from me.
b) i don’t want my work to live forever. i hope my stuff lives a fruitful life, and dies when the time comes, like everything else born of the sky father and the earth mother.
c) i tend to believe in copyleft, and tend not to believe in rulers.
d) i see my role in the world as being part of a constant resistance, helping restore the balance visualised in the taijitu, in whatever way i can.
e) i’m often a fan of lo-tech, DIY and number-8-wire attitudes.

    You say, "i see my role in the world
    as being part of a constant resistance,
    helping restore the balance
    visualised in the taijitu,
    in whatever way i can.

    What is the taijitu?

    Peace and love,
    - Joe.
