Abstract plaids, scattered spots. Slight tweaks on familiar things feels very much my speed these days.
Some pieces of writing that have me thinking about recurring themes in new ways:
- "The implicit conflation of the production of things with the living of a creative life" — Joshua Rothman on the problematic way we've changed the meaning of creativity.
- Jed Perl on Jeff Koons: "He will do whatever it takes to win, and in our winner-take-all culture that passes for profundity."
- Precession, star tunnels and the North Star: Ross Anderson visits Sky Axis, Charles Ross's naked-eye observatory in the New Mexico desert.
- How to visit the deep sea
