William-Eggleston-Stranded-in-Canton-1

Em 1974, o fotógrafo William Eggleston viajou pelo sul dos Estados Unidos documentando, com uma Sony Porta-pak, seus encontros com os personagens de Memphis e Nova Orleans. Em uma sequência do filme tiros são disparados, em outras meninos matam galinhas e um jovem de barba com feições de anjo divaga sobre estar ‘stranded in Canton’, uma expressão para estar bêbado ou sob o efeito de drogas.

In 1974, photographer William Eggleston’s travelled around America’s deep south documenting, with a Sony Porta-pak, his encounters with the characters of Memphis and New Orleans. In one sequence of the film shots are fired, in others good old boys decapitate chickens and a young bearded man with an angelic face raves about being stranded in Canton, a colloquialism for being out of one’s mind on drugs or alcohol.

The Underbelly Project

December 6, 2014

The-Underbelly-Project-2

The-Underbrlly-Project

Uma estação de metro abandonada em Manhattan abriu ilegalmente em 2009 para que 103 artistas trabalhassem por uma noite cada. Ao final do projeto, a maior galeria de arte subterrânea do mundo foi fechada, sua entrada original removida. O Projeto Underbelly é um experimento de arte urbana que busca subverter o comercialismo que tomou conta de grande parte da cena de arte de rua.

Os artistas, que incluem Roa, Faile, Revok and Lister, trabalharam durante quatro horas sob a luz de lanternas, e não podiam entrar ou sair para trazer mais suprimentos em função do perigo de serem descobertos, o que poderia resultar em acusações criminais.

Quando os curadores Workhorse e PAC anunciaram o fim do projeto, o espaço não foi aberto ao público. Na verdade, o local permanece um segredo mantido pelo MTA (órgão responsável pelo metrô de Nova York), que fechou o espaço transformando-o, como o complexo de cavernas de Lascaux, em uma cápsula do tempo para futuras gerações descobrirem.

——————-

An abandoned subway chamber under Manhattan illegally opened for a year in 2009 allowed 103 select artists to paint for one night each. Then the largest underground art gallery in the world was sealed off from the world, the original entrance to the station removed. The Underbelly Projec is a mysterious urban art experiment that seeks to subvert the commercialism that has overtaken much of the street art scene.

The artists, including Sane, Swoon, Roa, Faile, Revok and Lister, worked for four hours each by candle lanterns, and weren’t allowed in and out to retrieve more supplies due to the danger of getting caught, which could result in serious criminal charges.

When curators Workhorse and PAC declared the project finished, there was no opening to show the work. In fact, the space’s location remains a secret kept by the MTA, which boarded up the space, making it, like the cave of Lascaux, a time capsule for future generations to discover.

The Source (Evolving)

January 18, 2014

Após estrear na Tate Liverpool ano passado The Source (evolving), uma série de conversas entre o artista Doug Aitken com pioneiros de diversas disciplinas debuta nos EUA em Park City, Utah, no New Frontier do Sundance Film Festival. O programa  apoia e mostra filmes que desafiam estruturas de narrativa na contagem de histórias, encourajando novas experiências visuais.

Durante o Sundance The Source (evolving), uma série de conversas com pioneiros de diversas disciplinas, será apresentado em uma esrutura circular criada em colaboração com um dos entrevistados, o arquiteto David Adjaye. Vídeos da exposição serão projetados nas paredes internas e externas do prédio. Aitken também criou um website para abrigar as entrevistas, realizadas com nomes que até agora incluem William Eggleston, Ryan Trecartin, Richard Phillips, Paolo Soleri, James Murphy, Jack White, Mike Kelley, Devendra Banhart, Beck, Tilda Swinton, Alice Waters, e James Turrell. A exposição vai até dia 24 de Janeiro, mas Aitken planeja continuar atualizando o website com novas entrevistas indefinidamente.

After premiering at the Tate Liverpool last year The Source (evolving), an ongoing series of  conversations between artist Doug Aitken  and groundbreaking pioneers from different disciplines, makes its U.S. debut in Park City, Utah, in conjunction with Sundance Film Festival‘s New Frontier. The program supports and showcases films that challenge and expand traditional narrative structures in storytelling in favor of entirely new viewer experiences.

Throughout Sundance The Source (evolving), will physically live in a specially-designed, 2000-square-foot standalone circular structure, created in collaboration with one of Aitken’s subjects, the architect David Adjaye. Six-channel video projections of the installation are projected across the walls of the building’s interior; the videos will also be projected onto the outer walls of the structure and visible from its exterior. Aitken has also developed a website to serve as home for the interviews, whose 22 subjects thus far include William Eggleston, Ryan Trecartin, Richard Phillips, Paolo Soleri, James Murphy, Jack White, Mike Kelley, Devendra Banhart, Beck, Tilda Swinton, Alice Waters, and James Turrell. Though the physical exhibition ends next Saturday, Aitken plans to continue to update the website with new conversations indefinitely.

TED talks: 4chan

January 4, 2014

Em 2003 Christopher “moot” Poole fundou o 4chan, um imageboard não censurado que lançou memes como o LOLcats e Rickrolling. Foi também de onde partiu um ataque hacker a um website de uma grande empresa de comunicação e ao menos uma campanha ativista no mundo real.

O vídeo abaixo mostra “moot” em uma conferência TED, traçando a história da subcultura mais influente da internet:

In 2003 Christopher “moot” Poole founded 4chan, an uncensored online imageboard that lauched Internet “memes” such as LOLcats and Rickrolling. It was also the source of a high-profile hack of a mainstream media website and at least one activist campaign in the real world.

The video below shows “moot” at a TED talk in 2010, tracing the history of the web’s most influential subculture:
