Really superlative work from Mr. Shalom. I’ve been trying to figure out how to approximate a tool to do something with micro-edits like this in a live situation. It’s incredibly tough to get somewhere with that….but it has such great possibilities. I think the devoted work and practice here really shows. Gabriel is becoming quite a craftsman.

Cory Arcangel’s new book is just tweets of people saying they’re working on their novel. This is simultaneously amazing and also forming a deep pit of despair in my gut.

A growing genre of API/search/program/collate as conceptual poetry (or literature).

Light Barrier

Open air art installation by Kimchi and Chips produces geometric forms in air with an array of computer controlled mirrors and lights - video embedded below:

Kimchi and Chips create phantoms of light in the air, crossing millions of calibrated beams with their work Light Barrier, 2014. The light installation creates floating graphic objects which animate through space as they do through time.

A fascination with natural light drove the technique of the impressionist painters, they explored new qualities of colour and the trail of time. Kimchi and Chips’ study of digital light discusses a new visual mechanic, their installation adding to the visual language of space and light. As the artist’s inquiry deepens, brush strokes become descriptive like code, detailing reality and allying light with canvas.

Chino Otsuka : Imagine Finding Me 

Chino Otsuka uses photography and video to explore the fluid relationship between the memory, time and photography. At age 10 she moved from Japan to the United Kingdom to attend school. Her experience of becoming familiar with a new place, a different language and new customs while she was developing her adolescent identity has profoundly shaped her work in photography, video and writing. Her series Imagine Finding Me consists of double self-portraits, with images of her present self beside her past self in various places she has visited. As Otsuka says: “The digital process becomes a tool, almost like a time machine, as I’m embarking on the journey to where I once belonged and at the same time becoming a tourist in my own history.”  - via AGO

I am unexpectedly weepy looking at this.

gosh that’s… moving in a really gentle kind of “mother your inner child” way…

It’s so good that I ALMOST SCROLLED PAST IT because I assumed they were just regular pictures

To treat images of the past as historical documents or as evidence of outmoded concepts is wrong : they are specific solutions to ongoing artistic problems - and this is what makes them of interest today.
