Mumford -- Art and Technics (xiii)

" perfecting a mechanical method, the "taking of pictures" by a mere registration of sensations was democratized. ... What had been in the seventeenth century a slow handicraft process, requiring well-trained eyes and extremely skilled became an all-but-automatic gesture.

For after all it turns out that even in the making of the most mechanically contr...

In Europe, Lockdowns Mean Neighbors Having Impromptu Singalongs From Their Windows

And then there’s the social-media-scheduled applause for hospital workers as well. In Rome, one neighborhood sang the anti-fascist anthem “Bella Ciao.” And “elsewhere in the city, pop triumphed over politics, as a neighborhood came together to perform the 1958 Eurovision Song Contest’s third-place winner ‘Nei Blu, Dipinto di Blu,’ a.k.a. ‘Volare.'” – Slate

"It was the dawn of the psychedelic 1960s, and she saw that she could create herself in a new form, as an alter ego she called Genesis P-Orridge...."

"After art school she formed a confrontational performance group called COUM Transmissions, which shocked the British art world with a 1976 exhibition called 'Prostitution' at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts. The exhibition included pornography, strippers and used tampons, and led one member of Parliament to call the group 'wreckers of civilization.' The core members of COUM morphed into Throbbing Gristle, an often abrasive experimental band that coined the term 'industrial music' to des...

The Met Closes, Posing A Massive Economic Threat

Now, it will lose millions in ticket revenues.” – The New York Times

If there is such leeway, there is a possibility of art, that is of success or failure in terms that would have significance to the beholder. Perhaps the best effect of machine art is to make us conscious of the play of the human personality in the small area where it remains free, a diff...
