I really like this project by Emily and Evan Mast, for the EXHIBITION. It is sort of like a project I was planning, but totally different. I'm glad they used smoke machines.

I found this comment through a strange network of links. A very strange network. Probably only strange to me. Whatever.
What matters is this amazing comment about Jack Stranges work posted on Rhizome.

The comment was made by Frank Hecker. According to his Rhizome profile he is "Director of Grants and Programs with the Mozilla Foundation". Cool

Here is his blog post about how amazing this work of art is!

I am very impressed and kind of sad that after living with Pablo the physics geek that I didn't notice this before.

I want to write more about this right now but I have to think about it more. Amazing!

Fwd: 8/15 - Wassaic Project Summer Festival - GROUP SHOW curated by Emily Schroeder

Normal Projects is pleased to announce its participation in The Wassaic Project Summer Festival 2009. The Wassaic Project is a culmination of art and music with a local community atmosphere at a mill with a grain elevator in upstate NY. The New York Times recently described the Wassaic Project as perhaps the first of its kind in the United States. Read more about it at

Please join us on August 15th from 6-8p for the opening reception for Incantations in Migration of Summer's Wonderlust and Landscape, curated by Emily Schroeder, at Maxon Mills (Ground Floor) during the Wassaic Project Summer Festival. The show culminates as series of reactions that may or not be related to the landscape present or semblances of. With direct quotation from poet, John Ashbery (b. 1927), "Just because the river looks like it's flowing backwards/ Doesn't mean that motion doesn't mean something," written in 1987 was originally utilized as translation to transition the curator relocated from New York to Chicago, and also aptly describes the motion toward creating a community event in a contemporary art setting in a relic of industrial past. This group show features installation on the ground floor of the Maxon Mills as well as through the Wassaic Project grounds. Video will be presented in conjunction with a series of small paintings and work on paper.

Artists participating include:
Greg Stimac
Conrad Ventur

More about interface

A cool cursor game from an essay I'm reading right now.
It seems pretty good so far. One of the illustrations is a work by Jan Robert Leegte. They have section on Renaissance painting. And this cool thing:

I hope the ending is good :-)

It does float

I have always thought that living in a house boat would be super amazing. I would probably want something that is more sustainable but I like the way this one looks.
Found while looking up wierd rocks for new secret blog I started with Dain.

Gibson World pt. 2

I realized that alot of the things that I have been thinking are like William Gibson have been coming from Cory Doctrow and Co's posts at Boing Boing. Such as: Warning Signs for the 21st Century, Nokia and Siemens spying for the Iranian government, Sephora make up designed for HD and more later maybe.

Untitled (Mona Lisa), by Charles Broskoski

I have been reading some William Gibson latly (reading Mona Lisa Overdrive at the moment) so this image on Brian Droitcour's blog caught my attention. Everything is starting to look alot like his stories. The Ghana data market is one of those things. I didn't keep track of the other ones I found.

I have no idea

As it has been happening alot while looking around Korean websites for things... I have no idea who these are by or when they were made, but I think they are paintings..

I like the one on the left.

Here is a great article about Michael Jackson on Click Opera from 2005 that was reposted.

"When we look at Michael Jackson, I believe we're looking at the future of our species. Michael is a creature from a future in which we've all become more feminine, more consumerist, more postmodern, more artificial, more self-constructed and self-mediating, more playful, caring and talented than we are today. But it's hard to use those adjectives, because they're Either-Or adjectives and he's from the world of Yet-Also, a world I believe we will all come to live in if we're lucky, a world where there is no more authenticity-by-default-through-brute-necessity and no more "human nature". A world of pure synthesis, pure self-creation."

"He's black yet also white. He's adult yet also a child. He's male yet also female. He's gay yet also straight. He has children, yet he's also never fucked their mothers. He's wearing a mask, yet he's also showing his real self. He's walking yet also sliding. He's guilty yet also innocent. He's American yet also global. He's sexual yet also sexless. He's immensely rich yet also bankrupt. He's Judy Garland yet also Andy Warhol. He's real yet also synthetic. He's crazy yet also sane, human yet also robot, from the present yet also from the future. He declares his songs heavensent, and yet he also constructs them himself. He's the luckiest man in the world yet the unluckiest. His work is play. He's bad, yet also good. He's blessed yet also cursed. He's alive, but only in theory."

Also, Momus is now writing for ART IT. A bilingual magazine on contemporary Asian art which I had recently picked up a few copies at the Art Sonje Center's bookstore. Its online for free now so I'm not going to be spending the pricey 20,000W to get it any more. It's Great!

The posts by Rafael at Computers Club are some of the better surf club posts in a short minute.

I would normally just this but the pc bang that's near my house blocks it for some reason or another and I need to remember that it is there to look at later :-)
