I'm getting a kick out of MoMA's attempts to conserve Dieter Roth's artworks, many of which Roth clearly wanted to rot away. It's an interesting idea: what should a conservator do when the artist embraces entropy & rot? While I would let them rot uninterrupted, MoMA is taking a slightly different approach.

@hecanjog I came across this film clip of George Lewis performing Rainbow Family & thought of you!

"The resultant [concrete] poems, if executed with the same care given to projects by the best graphic designers, are logos and slogans for the corporate sponsors of Jorge Luis Borges's Library of Babel...these imaginary businesses, and the advertising campaigns that support them, promote a poetic dreamscape of alphabetic strangeness."

just wondered what an ascii emoticon looks like, when you take it as an input of an ascii text generator and take the result of that and give it to some glitch text generator and feed the result again to some ascii text generator…

tomorrow a very special rendition of M. Delak's piece for 5 contemporary performers called "Just for Today"

if you are into slow evolving art, somewhat aesthetically bare/stripped down, (my) sounds, or any stage art for that matter, you'd not want to miss this. Not sure if we'll ever do this again in this way.

I appreciate artists & thinkers who change their methods so radically that they end up criticizing their previous work.

Nothing is more boring than an creator satisfied with their initial approach.

My wife taught me how to sew a few months ago & I'm now using the new skill to bind some zines.
