“with spyglasses and telescopes aimed downward they never tire of examining [their city], leaf by leaf, stone by stone, ant by ant, contemplating with fascination their own absence.”
Invisible Cities + some places I have known from above.
I can’t look at these classic statues now without thinking of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus.
I have a show up until the end of this week of several works at the General Public Collective in Indy — There’s a lot of photos that I took of the show personally, and a lot more done by people on their own phones and digital cameras. And then this woman had an orgasm while riding Napoleon’s horse.
I don’t know what SKRWT is supposed to mean, but it is apparently “the missing link in high-end smartphone photography” editing apps (for iOS). The bold minimalism may make it seem worthless. And the name is stupid, but don’t be deceived. It is indeed quite a useful tool. I recommend it.
Finally an iphone app for architectural iphone-photographers, corrects perspective. Looks like ti could use a little barrel-distortion fixin’ though.
I don’t want to suggest that there is nothing left to experience before original works of art except a certain sense of awe, because they have survived, because they are genuine, because they are absurdly valuable. A lot more is possible. But only if art is stripped of the false mystery and the false religiosity which surrounds it. This religiosity, usually linked with cash value, but always invoked in the name of culture and civilisation is in fact a substitute for what paintings lost when the camera made them reproducible.
This is great
Photo I shot for an upcoming book!
Finally bought an actual watercolor set, so all weekend I’ve been playing with the possibilities of that texture combined with vector color.
