Where did all the people go? How often do you get an entire beach to yourself? My oh my, oo lala. What do you do when your world is a playground, open to all possibility? Why, you make your dreams come true of course! It’s just that sometimes your dreams are simple, like lounging around in a bathing suit while warm air breezes off the water and around your body. Simple isn’t always easy though. Example: Robert Rauschenberg’s “Erased de Kooning Drawing”, an artwork through which Rauschenberg completely erased one of de Kooning’s original drawings, framed it, and presented it as his own work. Simple? Yes. Easy? For no one. de Kooning liked his drawing; Rauschenberg burned through 15 erasers and one month to get the job done. The point here is that for security (and especially for security through freedom) sacrifices must be made. Sartre would say that freedom is necessary, that it is just another word for existence. But he would also agree that it is damning, carrying with it responsibilities for all the world. When Sartre gets into your head, playing on the beach feels less like a holiday and more like possibilities being consumed.
