Miscellaneous thoughts this week.
It occurs to me that what Ben's doing here is blogging, blogging on instagram. About techno and other stuff. It's superb. It's blogging. Blogging finds a way.
I saw this digital poster. I thought the headline was One Builds A Legacy By Standing Still. That's great, I thought, quite the change from the usual nonsense. Something about the value of stillness, of remaining fixed and static and having a solid place to stand. And a splendidly literate use of 'One' - a great way to assert a distinctive tone of voice. Nicely counter-intuitive and provoking.
Then I realised it didn't say that. Oh well.
A central part of the art is their interaction with bureaucracy - the permissions they have to get, the reports they have to commission - millions of dollars of work/value all embedded in three-ring binders. Those binders are hugely evocative of a particular kind of thought and organisation. They don't appear to be being digitised away.
I'd go and see an art show about three-ring binders. Make it happen!
