Links for 1.17.09: Painted books, pictures of records, Legos of history…
by Josh Kimball
*Art: Painting books is a lot like watching videos of phonographs. “In the end, these paintings stand against loss and for reverie, memory, optimism, desire, and love,” says the artist of his work.
*Communications: A website whereupon Ze Frank talks about what he does – Posts are titled “Awareness of Audience” or “Central personae vs. algorithm.”
*Politics: Tuesday’s presidential inauguration has been precreated in Legos. (PRECREATED? Did I just? Did I?)
*I feel like I should have added more context to all these links, but I was too tired. If it’s possible for you to do, you should trust me – they’re good. Thank you.
