But It’s Art…

Earlier in the year, some researchers wired rat neurons to a couple of coloured felt-tip pens over the internet to get scribbly "drawings". Voila! Art, not bad vivisectionist "science".

Don’t Buy Glossy Lifestyle Magazines Quarter

"Adbusters" were unimpressed by "MTV" not showing an advertisement for "Turn Off Your TV" week.I propose "Don't Buy Glossy Lifestyle Magazines Quarter". Glossy magazines peddle homogenized culture, leech cash and waste time. They propagate unreality more intimately than TV, and are more tailored to demographics. They are a threat to private space and shared reality…

Playing The Mall

I liked the idea that glistening, reflecting, revealing and frustrating optical spaces could be laid bare by base descriptive language standing in for light, colour and texture.
