"Paper architecture has often had a real utopian or critical underlying agenda to it... [It] was often explicitly anti-capitalist, and emphasized the possibilities of a post-revolutionary society."

"Today’s C.G.I. interiors, on the other hand, offer a fantasy of individual consumption and relaxation, but suggest a certain amount of political indifference. 'This seems like there’s no plan, no societal vision, no critique....Taking a historical view, to have anything appropriating fictional utopian architecture with no utopian vision is a bit depressing.' The earlier part of the twenty-tens saw an explosion of 'cabin porn' on Tumblr: a nostalgic, earthy aesthetic of Obama-era hipster America...

Interior Dept Defends Trump-Boosting Propaganda Vid By Boasting About Secretary

On Tuesday, Interior Secretary Da...

Under Vanessa Pappas, TikTok could go from political nightmare to a powerhouse focused on investing in creators

Martin Salgo via Tiktok TikTok is awaiting the approval of a deal with Oracle that could put an end to the months-long battle with the US government over the app's Chinese ties and US presence. Pressure on the relationship between TikTok and its Beijing-based parent company, ByteDance, has led to questions over who will have control over the resulting US-based company. This power struggle seems to have been a reason why TikTok's last CEO, Kevin Mayer, quit only three months into the job. ...

This cool new wine club walks you through terroir, taste, and history with a sommelier's hand-painted maps

My friend James Sligh is a brilliant sommelier (and writer) with an uncanny ability to talk about wine and figure out exactly what you want to drink. I don't even care for wine (I like malted barley more than grapes), and I've always been impressed at his ability to find precisely the right drink for every occasion—and serve it with a fascinating story that dives deep into regional history. "I fell in love with wine because you can see the entire world through it," he likes to say. "What do you ...

Photographing History with Pete Souza

You can look at an image intuitively feel the power and the emotion, regardless of age, race, gender, social/economic status, geography, even time. Pete Souza is such a critical creator in not just the arc of the United States of America and world politics, but as a guy out there doing what he loves, chasing his passion and hoping to tell a story and represent history in a powerful and profound way. He’s done cover stories ...

This Week in Photography: Time is Hell

  My daughter is turning eight next week.   Right here, in this space, I wrote about when she was born. I discussed changing her diapers. I shared how it felt. It was 2012, and Barack Obama was about to be re-elected President of the United States. His opponent, Mitt Romney, represented the Republican Party. Now, he’s one of its foremost critics, from the inside, and President Obama, out of power nearly four years, unloaded on Donald Trump in the digital version of a Democratic Party convention....

Kim Jong-un is dead, Prince Andrew is broke, and Kobe Bryant killed himself, in this week’s dubious tabloids

There’s no rabbit pulled out pf a hat, but when the ‘Globe’ tops its front page with the words “Explosive Proof” you know you’re going down the rabbit hole. “Kim Jong-un Is Dead!” screams the headline. “Photos unmask body double.” As the article goes on to explain: “Brutal North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has been secretly murdered by his blood-thirsty sister Kim Yo-jong, experts confirm - and replaced with a body double!” Those must be some highly-paid experts.
