Redux Reviews

categories:

Art Dirt Redux is gaining some traction. Here's a sampling of reviews from the web.

Imperica (UK)Art Dirt Redux ADR is a series of interesting podwalks from G.H. Hovagimyan and Robbin Murphy. Varying exhibitions and installations taking place in New York City are covered by the duo and their guests. Their opinions are well-informed and unquestionably knowledgable, and somewhat forthright. The series is fun, and very informal; every now and then, they bump into friends and the conversation changes from an appreciation of the piece to catching up socially.
Technology is covered heavily; subjects in varying podcasts include iPods, RSS, Linux, and blogs, with happenings including Eyebeam and Dorkbot. (I had an idea a while ago to cover Dorkbot; I might try to cover the UK events.)
It took me a while to get into, but it's certainly interesting to listen to, and is a very atmospheric
podwalk.

I saw A SoaPOPera for iMacs

categories: | | |

Hey, I saw this show too and it was great. Except I thought it should have occupied the whole space of the Galerie du Jeu de Paume instead of coupling it with a truly misplaced thingy (can't call this an exhibition really) about Charlie Chaplin. I hope the Galerie never indulges again in such audience seeking excesses, Chaplin was drawing lots of people indeed.

In One Stroke, Podcasting Hits Mainstream

EVER since Steven P. Jobs returned to Apple Computer in 1997 after a 12-year absence, his company has thrived by executing the same essential formula over and over: Find an exciting new technology whose complexity and cost keep it out of the average person's life. Streamline it, mainstream it, strip away the geeky options. Take the credit.

A Penguin in the Selva Lacandona - Part 2

(The zapatista is just a little house, perhaps the smallest, on a street called "Mexico," in a barrio called "Latin America," in a city called the "World.")

I was speaking to you about the critiques of the points made by the Sixth Declaration of the Selva Lacandona concerning Mexico, Latin America and the World. Well, in response, allow me some questions:


Double Negative

Michael Heizer

Essay by Michael Govan

In the mid-1960s, during the same period that Michael Heizer was making large-scale, shaped, "negative" paintings in his New York City studio, he began a series of trips to his home states of Nevada and California to experiment on the expansive raw canvas of the American desert landscape, where he created "negative" sculpture. The genre that he and his colleague Walter De Maria invented there—later dubbed "Earth art" or "Land art"— changed the course of modern art history. Working largely outside the confines of the gallery and the museum, Heizer went on to redefine sculpture in terms of scale, mass, gesture, and process, creating a virtual lexicon of three-dimensional form.
