Paris, March 2018
All clips here are worth exploring, but I was struck in particular by Shore's thoughts on Instagram and global photo-based communities and how the iPad, like a view camera, mediates the act of picture making.
Physical retail, TV, and, by extension, advertising at a tipping point (written roughly a year ago).
Having just returned from a long overdue revisit, I would agree with most of Jason's and Tyler's recommendations and observations. Paris is a work of art (at times veering on cliché) best explored on foot and by Metro.
What's a librarian to do with an "ocean of ephemera"?
Must-read for anyone who has ever dropped a quarter (or token) into a video game or pinball machine.
Language has lived, lives, and will live on.
So much to like here. Have to love El Ateneo (a converted theater!!). If pressed, at the moment, I think the old Seminary Co-op would top my list, not for anything overwhelmingly beautiful about the space, but the overall feeling of submersion it always created. Books and basements. Who knew?
"Kieślowski, who grew up under Communist rule, in Poland, was unembarrassed by big questions."
Shared with some irony. Notable comparison to early TV viewing norms.
