From one of my most favorite reads, PSFK:
Ahhhhhhhhhh. Yeah, I could almost drop a tab after this. Almost.
I should have posted this long ago. Jonathan Harris will email you inspired photos with brief, honest, personal accounts of his observations and insights. They are not too heavy, not too light, not too complicated, not too simple. They will make you feel like you know him, and that you are pulling for him. Even a little afraid for him sometimes (the recent fainting account was one of those times).
Harris’ main work is, how to say – technology-related art projects? I especially like The Whale Hunt.
But Number 27 is the gift that keeps on giving, long after you’ve enjoyed the other projects.
More terrific installations, seen on Vvork. Especially love Simple Couples, pictured.
And it’s an ad. “In March 2009 a small town in Iceland (Seydisfjordur) was filled with speakers. Sounds by Richard Fearless ( Death in Vegas ) Mum, Bob Dylan, Toumani Diabate, Roberto Goyeneche, Murcof, Federico Cabral, Guillemots, etc.” I don’t even care if it is real or not.
And here are some places you might see, or might have seen What Cheer? Brigade.
Me reading Wooster reporting on Rumpus interviewing Anthony Lister. Excerpt:
“(Anthony Lister) This piece, titled HOLY MOLY (mixed media on canvas, painted 2008), is based on a story about Britney Spears’ sister having a baby. I initially painted a picture of a pretty young woman with a baby spitting lottery balls out of its vagina as if to suggest that children are a metaphor for the Holy Grail. It is a painting about fertility, miss-guided youth and predators within social networks and in the media.”
On the great Booooooom! :

Walt Disney reveals the multi-plane camera. Disney choirs oo in the background. This is an easy seven minutes to pass.
