A New Way. Can You Help Some People Who Mean Alot To The World, and To Me?

Throughout our lives, we will come to find ourselves in a lot of different places. A lot of different rooms. A lot of different corners. A lot of different wheres. Those wheres will be unexpected. They will surprise us, scare us, change everything, change nothing, and break our hearts. I’ve found myself in some prettyContinue reading “A New Way.

(In)Visibility and Art [& suffering]

Today, after 9-10 days of a horrific infection, I found myself feeling human enough to do some actual work. We’re organizing a conference about art and visibility, my PhD friends and I.

Tomorrow belongs to those who can hear it coming

I recently received some incredible, completely surprising and insane(-ly good) news.  As previously written on a few blog posts, I had applied for a PhD – not ever thinking I’d even get shortlisted, but I was happy with the learning process itself.

Mid-20’s isn’t that old, but I feel like I’ve aged 2 lifetimes in the past 3 years.

Looks like Documenta 13’s website hacked

I like Documenta. I especially it’s publications from each exhibition. But I sort of love the unexpectedness of the find. I haven’t figured out if the Documenta home site has also been hacked, “CENTER FOR DEALING WITH THE PAST” it’s perfectly plausible. I hope it’s that subtle line between satirical and subversive. Finding this hasContinue reading “Looks like Documenta 13’s website hacked”
