Nothing That Meets the Eye: Double Trouble

“Nothing That Meets the Eye” is a series of essays in which I think through the aesthetic and affective fallout of some of the odder, ubiquitous, and more stubborn byproducts of our culture of copies, reproductions, and fakes. It is only fitting that I end this series back where it began, in the presence of Elaine Sturtevant’s […]

Five-Tone Kit: Lewis Watts & Casual

This five-part series — named after a section of composer Lou Harrison‘s (1917-2003) Rhymes With Silver — pairs an image of San Francisco from the SFMOMA Collection with a piece of music also created in or indebted to the Bay Area at large. Show More Summary

Collection Rotation: Leef Smith

Sometime in the winter of 2001/2002 I saw the ORGANIC/INORGANIC Selections from the Permanent Collection of Architecture and Design show at SFMOMA, in which the work of the L.A. artists Form:uLA Dimension Laboratory particularly struck me. The strangely assembled, sleek black forms felt other-worldly, unbuildable, and slightly menacing, like insects ready to pounce or a […]

When I was super young, say around five or so, I remember playing in the bath tub with my plastic toys. Some were super heroes like He-Man or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, others were monster trucks and die-cast matchbox cars … Continue reading ?

Collection Rotation: Lacey Haslam

The search function is the pinnacle of any networked system, an access point that has evolved from an aspect of internal networks into being synonymous with the almighty search engine. In the ’80s, a time when our internal networks were flawed by unstructured information management, Thomas D. Wilson began studying behaviors related to seeking information.

On Being-Hated: Ron Athey, Whip-Its, Envy.

I know these posts usually start with something coherent, like where I am or where I might be going. How I want what I want when I want it, that sort of thing. Maybe it’s weird for me to assume that any of this might be interesting to you, voyeuristically or whatever. But god, I'm so tired I’ve gotta be honest. I did a lot of fucking drugs last night so my head hurts

On Being-Hated: Werner Schroeter, Erika Staiti, “Community”

Let’s start with where I can’t go. I could have one lover, maybe two; I could text someone I don’t know from the Internet and meet them on a street corner, kiss them when we don’t yet know each other’s names. I could stand on the same street corner, abandoned callously by someone else’s lover, […]

Other Half Orbit

We met with Ingrid Rojas Contreras and Jeremiah Barber in the gallery of their current joint exhibition Lo real maravilloso at Mission Cultural Center to talk about their ongoing collaboration. Ingrid identifies primarily as a writer and Jeremiah as a visual artist; however, their connection and collaboration of more than a decade blurs boundaries between words and images.

On Being-Hated: Banks Violette, Pharmakon, Karaoke.

Let’s start with where I am. It could be anywhere. I’m on a train to Philadelphia, I’m on a plane back to New York. I’ve just moved to Oakland.
