Paolo Fusco - Fiori 24h

Artist’s statement:

"Hardly anything is open 24h in Rome: a few bars, a few stores, self service gas stations and flower kiosks, a lot of flower kiosks. You can find them everywhere in the city and they never close. They never close. Their presence has always fascinated me, they seem like sentinels in the quiet roman night, small lighthouses populated by half-asleep immigrant workers. The photos were taken while wondering through the city in search of these islands of light and flowers."

Dogememberment Plan

This is hilarious for a very small number of people.

Saelan, I can hear you laughing at this in my mind and that alone is hilarious.

Francis Picabia, Réveil Matin (Alarm Clock), 1919
possibly marking the beginning of the dismantling of orderly, 19C archival systems: a starting point for the collapse and dismantling of the (ordered) archive in the 20c, a temporal breakdown marked by a continual “return to zero” (badiou, in godard’s film socialisme)…recall that three standard stoppages appears nearly six years prior. duchamp: “If a straight horizontal thread one meter long falls from a height of one meter onto a horizontal plane twisting as it pleases[it] creates a new image of the unit of length.” as a joke about the metre (spatiality); what we find here in picabia is an insistence on an a-temporal conceptualization of “order”, only be be exemplified by contemporaneous dada practices.

Fake Skyline Alex Hofford

Tourists visiting Hong Kong during hazy days can now take a picture of the skyline with the help of banner photographs of the skyline during a sunny day. Does that make sense? Guess it does by the amount of tourists using the backdrop photographs! Be sure not to let the seam show…
