I’m coming to L.A.

theta

Los Angeles people! I’m coming to your city July 18th! Imprint Culture Lab has invited me to give an hour-long talk so if you’re in the area come on out. I’ll be speaking about the current state of the Internet and how it is negatively affecting creativity. I’m hoping people ask questions at the end so we can have a nice conversation. Lets be friends in real life!

    I’d like to go to that talk, sounds interesting

  • photogasme

    I hope there will be a video recording of this talk for those who are out of the country^^ it sounds really captivating! and I agree with the fact that internet and “oversharing” is bad news for the arts… it leaves no more room for mystery and surprise, the great feeling of satisfaction that comes from discovering something is being lost…

    • i think there might be video, ill report back if there is

      • photogasme

        great!! thanks so much and good luck ;)

      • photogasme

        So how was it? :D

  • Stephanie Ann Buer

    I wish you were coming a month later, then I could meet you, hear your talk AND you could see my show with Mary Iverson at Thinkspace gallery!! I love your blog, I hope our paths cross some day : )

    • no i wish i was too – im sure our paths will tho :-)

  • TELL ME THE SECRET OF USING THAT 360 APP! Haha, I’ve been trying since you first wrote about it :

If you grew up in the 80s you’re really gonna like this Instagram account. Steelberg takes current films and makes fantastic retro VHS covers for them. Many of you will be too young to have ever gone to a store to rent a video but seeing these makes me kinda miss the whole movie-choosing ritual. Have a look at more VHS covers below.
