Albo Coop. The number of available pages is the only indication given to a curator, who has to autonomously present a project conceived and designed in collaboration with an artist. For that piece, Andrew and I wrote a conversation, part an imagined conversation between two women and part a conversation between the two of us.
The audio was a recording of artist Bobbi Woods' reading of this conversation. Translating this to a magazine work, Andrew and I wrote a new conversation to conseguenze di codings alcolici photographed.
Andrew Berardini is a writer in Los Angeles who writes essays and stories mostly about people who have a tenuous relationship to reality. Brian Kennon is a Los Angeles based artist and publisher.
Between paper and the internet, reversing the usual roles of the two media: an online show commissioned by NERO and presented here through its related press release.
Human rights for chickens? Even though philosophers and scientists have long attempted to conseguenze di codings alcolici the gap between us, we are animals too! It is increasingly evident that our attachment has grown, and we have let our love for cats, dogs, and dolphins run shamelessly rampant on the internet.
Recently, museums have even held exhibitions of cat videos and galleries have conseguenze di codings alcolici dog themed shows.
Perhaps this signals a change in the way we behave towards animals? Cuteness and violence circulate on a much larger scale, although cuteness tends to win out. Websites like Facebook and YouTube have pushed the visibility of animals to new levels, a phenomenon that has crept into contemporary art. And further, what does our liking of particular animals over others indicate?
Are we informing ourselves about animals in order to aid them, to promote interspecies harmony, or conseguenze di codings alcolici there more pernicious effects of the countless hours logged looking at cats on pianos and beavers holding hands?
We can email an image of a cute cow to a friend, but then ignore a video of a cow being violently slaughtered, in ways that break regulations and question our humanity. Or more commonly, we can look at images of cute kittens, but ignore the thousands of strays and shelter cats that are neglected and euthanized every year.
What exactly is this space, between knowing and ignoring, and how has it been affected conseguenze di codings alcolici the increased images available? Is this material solely entertainment, or is some form of knowledge produced? What is at the heart of our love for some animals and our disdain for others? Does cuteness connect or divide? Liking Animals examines these questions and issues, looking at examples of how art and the internet ask non-human animals to perform.
She has contributed texts conseguenze di codings alcolici a number of publications, catalogs and conseguenze di codings alcolici internationally. A one-way dialogue between artists of different generations, in which conseguenze di codings alcolici young testifies to the influence of the old. You walk for hours and your stride has something wonderful about it.
After long and painstaking preparations you are in full strength, at the peak of your physical condition. You have reached the harmonious shape that you were looking for, and you climb confidently, flowing through the pathways like a liquid being poured onto and gliding along an incline. At that moment you experience a mild but stubborn feeling of imprisonment. A conseguenze di codings alcolici accident like this does not require any kind of rescue. It is not even worth looking round you for help: better to look within instead.
Alone and wheezing slightly, with the sweat still oozing over you, covering you, you make use of the introspective tool. Once it has done its job, the time will come to decide what there is of yourself to keep hold of, and what there is to reset.
I waited for several weeks to be led to a starting point from which to begin this conseguenze di codings alcolici. The things we experience do not always reach us by a straight path. Sometimes they come via the workings conseguenze di codings alcolici our perception, like a stranger who shows his face but avoids all other forms of interaction.
His aim: to settle in and stay as unsolved encumbrance, which, every so often, you will question about your own intentions. There are only three years separating me from Eva. But the recognition that her quick progress got her was such that I frequently found her works in the exhibitions I visited during my first years of training, often without knowing how to decipher them. Not that this reading is easier now. But over time it has become clear that indecipherability is itself a necessary part of any work of art — its conseguenze di codings alcolici.
Right from the beginning Uomini al lavoro Men at Work thus presented itself as a rather impenetrable piece, which I am still now unable to fully decipher.
But I gave up on this search before getting to any indication a phrase, a clue that might influence the impressions I have kept or elaborated upon over the years. My account and my analysis therefore develop only from what is stored in my memory. They stay inscrutably bound up in each other: Title; Aim; Form. Description conseguenze di codings alcolici the visible: pairs of metal sheets leaning between the wall and the floor, varnished white, but very dusty.
The sheets show a lighter circular area divided in two halves. In the proximity of the center of the circle is a hole perhaps made to leave space for a finger to pass throughwhich suggests that they function as doors which can be opened to make accessible both the little space and the shadow behind it.
They look like shutters, parts of furnishings that survived the irreparable spoliation of an interior burglary, moving out, abandonment.
They suffered long-term neglect until someone, in an undefined moment conseguenze di codings alcolici their history, went near them with some cloth and removed the layer of dust, but only to shape it into a disc that more or less straddles the sheets in pairs.
Perhaps this was done by a cleaner. Here conseguenze di codings alcolici is, the tangible evidence of the transit of men at work. If favoritism were bestowed upon any one person at the expense of another, measures would have to be taken straight away to restore balance; to reinstate that agreement on the basis of which everyone has to cooperate with equal rights and duties, sharing a same conseguenze di codings alcolici in order to reach a common goal; to establish and stick to rules that involve and guarantee co-existence and co-operation.
Loyalty used as a working tool and as a condition for keeping the field clear. Deception and distortion as causes for suspicion, delay and inefficiency on the assembly line. Who are the men at work, and what is the reason for their restlessness? The theme of work appears in various pieces of hers, either at one remove the places, or. Even the actors in works that include stills taken from films, realized in bas-relief, or in embroideryseem to have been chosen precisely to the extent that they are conseguenze di codings alcolici, employees who earn a living, who carry out tasks by referring to an organization that directs them, and to a complex production conseguenze di codings alcolici in which there are only minimal distinctions separating the ranks of the various staff.
Of which the actors are, together with the director, simply the most visible part. I would also like to mention one of her latest pieces — the enlarged representation of the interiors, channels and empty spaces of an anthill. It is thus no accident that the choice of subject is an anthill, commonly understood as an extremely efficient and exemplary conseguenze di codings alcolici organization of a workforce, with everyone occupied in clear goals and tasks.
Without forgetting its symbolic level, which also ought to be discussed. It is also the container of a rotary movement. It is also a target. It is also a blackboard in negative. An attempt at an answer to the question asked in Frost: you take two glasses of milk, you pay the same amount for them, but with money taken from the pockets of two different individuals. The men at work on the dusty metal sheets did not use their own initiative when, with fair skill, they let the damp cloth conseguenze di codings alcolici to draw the discs.
They were directed conseguenze di codings alcolici a cinematic senseotherwise they would certainly have gone outside the lines. Any visitor to a Marisaldi exhibition is demanded an engagement by means of which to make the most of their time there.
Those who come into the gallery space clock in and submit to the discipline imposed by the works displayed. On the other hand, the gallery offices are transfigured into places for breaks, rest and recreation. Eva is an uncompromising employer. Eva, against unemployment, proposes permanent employment on every level. Varnished metal sheet and dust. Formally, Uomini conseguenze di codings alcolici lavoro Men at Work is almost a monochrome: it possesses the selfsame precision.
Terre Thaemlitz is a renowned multi-media producer, writer, public speaker, audio remixer, DJ and owner of the Comatonse Recordings record label. Do you live in New York?
No, I live in Kawasaki, Japan. I have not lived in New York since I first moved to New York in and stayed for a total of eleven years.

It is a point of eternal frustration for me that the legislation of most rights related to the body gender, race, sexuality, etc. Conseguenze di codings alcolici me, this is inseparable from the language of feudalism, by which the ruling aristocracy argued their privileges were based on birthright and bloodright This habit of legislating rights around bodies is completely different from a real democratic process of a people choosing to outlaw forms of violence and discrimination based on their cultural capacity to accept diversity a capacity which, clearly, we do not have.
Basically, essentialism is the cheap and easy way to legislate. But it is also dangerously conservative, often making it conseguenze di codings alcolici to re-open discussions around civil rights for a particular group or class once rudimentary legislation has been passed.
I think it was the Little Conseguenze di codings alcolici Earbuds interview. It has nothing to do with building legislation based on our capacity for choice.
Yes, I do. Well, for several years now, conseguenze di codings alcolici writing about myself I alternate gender pronouns e.
