The first installment of a new subgenre called "Stand-up Philoso-comedy" where I (David Dixon) attempt a synthesis of 19th century French painter Gustave Courbet's masterpieces, A Burial at Ornans and The Artist's Studio, and his subsequent landscape painting; the notion of Sensus Communis as represented in a drawing by Leonardo da Vinci and as expressed by German Enlightenment thinkers Immanuel Kant and G.W.F Hegel; this, filtered through the lens of the pre-Socratic Zeno, his paradoxes, and the Narcissus myth. All in about a half hour. "The Grave is Empty (explained)" at Moonlighter Presents, BPM Brooklyn, December 2012.
