Minimum Wage Machine
(2008-2010, updated 2012, and 2016)
Custom electronics, change sorter, wood, plexiglas, motor, misc. hardware, pennies.
(approx. 15 x 19 x 72 inches)

The minimum wage machine allows anybody to work for minimum wage. For as long as they turn the crank, the user is paid in pennies as time passes. For example, if minimum wage is $7.25/hour (the current US Federal rate), then the worker is paid one penny every 4.97 seconds. If they stop turning the crank, they stop receiving money. The machine's mechanism and electronics are powered by the hand crank, and pennies are stored in a plexiglas box. The MWM is reprogrammed as minimum wage changes, or for wages in different locations.

Travel Blogger Discovers Woman Making Exact Instagram Replicas
It’s always flattering to find out that someone is a big fan of your work.
However, Lauren Bullen, the travel blogger behind the wanderlust Instagram account Gypsea Lust, recently came across an admirer who’s on a mission to follow in her footsteps.
Yep, Bullen was pretty shocked, not to mention super creeped out, when she stumbled upon an Instagram account, @diana_alexa, that featured a woman who travels the world to recreate the blogger’s Instagram photos.
Shortly after she made the disturbing discovery, Bullen wrote a post on her blog, Gypsea Lust, fittingly titled “Imitation Is The Best Form Of Flattery,” that calls out the woman who travels the world making exact copies of her Instagrams.

Ecce homo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article is about the biblical phrase and the subject in art. For other uses, see Ecce homo (disambiguation).
Ecce homo ("behold the man", Ecclesiastical Latin: [ˈɛttʃɛ ˈɔmɔ], Classical Latin: [ˈɛkkɛ ˈhɔmoː]) are the Latin words used by Pontius Pilate in the Vulgate translation of John 19:5, when he presents a scourged Jesus Christ, bound and crowned with thorns, to a hostile crowd shortly before his Crucifixion. The original Greek is Ίδε ό άνθρωπος (Ide ho anthropos). The Douay-Rheims Bible translates the phrase into English as "Behold the man!"[John 19:5] The scene has been widely depicted in Christian art.

Colonies | Vik Muniz And Tal Danino Turn Living Cells Into Art | The Creators Project
The last thing Brazilian multidisciplinary artist Vik Muniz imagined upon meeting MIT postdoctoral fellow, and self-described "bacteria enthusiast" Tal Danino, was that the process of art creation would begin right then and there. 

Months later, from healthy cheek cells to cancer cells, Danino and Muniz were creating image after image of biogenerated beauty. Muniz, the 52-year-old artist responsible for using focused ion beam technology to etch sandcastles onto single grains of sand, explains: "I always love to collaborate with scientists because it gives me an idea that we can perhaps meet in the middle somewhere and make this perfect piece of art that's exactly this combination between matter and meaning. Colonies is a collaboration between a scientist and an artist, trying to make pictures out of living things— tiny, tiny living things." Crossing as many disciplines as the project did boundaries for both the artist and the scientist, it was an experiment wherein the rigid scientific method was complemented by the fluidity of the artistic process, and vice versa.

NY Mag art critic Jerry Saltz says ‘Auctions Are a Nasty Piece of Work’
"Art and money never touch. They exist in parallel universes of value at comparable levels of cultural generalization: Art does nothing to money but translate it. Money does nothing to art but facilitate its dissemination and buy the occasional bowl of Wheaties for an artist or art dealer. Thus, when you trade a piece of green paper with a picture on it. signed by a bureaucrat, for a piece of white paper with a picture on it, signed by an artist, you haven’t bought anything, since neither piece of paper is worth anything. You have translated your investment and your faith from one universe of value to another."

-- Dave Hickey

So Long
I consider this leave from the art world as a lifeline. I saw my career flash before my eyes, a looping treadmill through an animatronic hell where robot choirs sing the same praises of blue chip artists and hollow prefab trends. I’ve watched an art dealer praise a mirrored Damien Hirst sculpture for its reflective quality; I’ve watched collectors in Miami contemplate buying a multi-million dollar artwork, because “that would go with the one in the foyer”; I’ve watched galleries stock up on safe painting, zombie abstraction, and bland conceptualism all calling back to the same Modernist touchstones. And if an art writer wants to eat, this is the world you’ll be covering for your for-profit collector-driven art magazine.

Walking on the beach imitating sand - Exhibition
Hus Gallery is pleased to announce a new site-specific exhibition by artists Virgile Ittah and Kai Yoda. For this show, “Walking on the beach imitating sand”, Ittah and Yoda have transformed the gallery into a fully immersive, sensory environment. In their second full-scale collaboration together, the artists continue to explore notions of identity, isolation and nostalgia in relation to their shared feeling of otherness born from their respective identities as migrant nationals. Ittah was born in France and is of Jewish North African descent – both her father and grandmother were born in Morocco – while Yoda was born in Tokyo to a Japanese father and a Swedish mother. Ittah and Yoda’s parallel histories of social and geographical migration has resulted in a mutual feeling of constant flux, a feeling of falling between national and cultural identities without the ability to claim allegiance to any one thing. Thus, “Walking on the beach imitating sand” is their creation of a new homeland, a homeland that can be packed up and carried with you because it is a mood and an atmosphere rather than a physical local. It combats the issue of the ‘impossibility of return’ to one’s native land because it does not require a shared language or culture, rather this homeland adapts to the individual narratives and experiences of whoever chooses to visit.

Oscar Wilde on popular art - Wikiquote
The public has always, and in every age, been badly brought up. They are continually asking Art to be popular, to please their want of taste, to flatter their absurd vanity, to tell them what they have been told before, to show them what they ought to be tired of seeing, to amuse them when they feel heavy after eating too much, and to distract their thoughts when they are wearied of their own stupidity. Now Art should never try to be popular. The public should try to make itself artistic. There is a very wide difference.
(The Soul of Man Under Socialism, 1895)

Allan Kaprow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Allan Kaprow (August 23, 1927 – April 5, 2006) was an American painter, assemblagist and a pioneer in establishing the concepts of performance art. He helped to develop the "Environment" and "Happening" in the late 1950s and 1960s, as well as their theory. His Happenings - some 200 of them - evolved over the years. Eventually Kaprow shifted his practice into what he called "Activities", intimately scaled pieces for one or several players, devoted to the study of normal human activity in a way congruent to ordinary life. Fluxus, Performance art, and Installation art was, in turn, influenced by his work.

The Age of Collage. Contemporary Collage in Modern Art - we make money not art
Publisher Gestalten writes: The Age of Collage is a striking documentation of today's continued appetite for destructive construction. Showcasing outstanding current artwork and artists, the book also takes an insightful behind-the-scenes look at those working with this interdisciplinary and cross-media approach.

The collages featured in this book are influenced by illustration, painting, and photography and play with elements of abstraction, constructivism, surrealism, and dada. Referencing scientific images, pop culture, and erotica, they reflect humanity's collective visual memory and context.

Through confident cuts, brushstrokes, mouse clicks, or pasting, the work in The Age of Collage gives the impossible a tangible form. It expands the possibilities of the genre while turning our worldview on its head along the way.

DAILY SERVING » Janet Cardiff: The Forty Part Motet at The Cloisters
For the 11-minute score, Cardiff reworked the Tudor-era composition Spem in Alium Nunquam Habui (In No Other Is My Hope) (1573) by Thomas Tallis. The piece, originally intended for recital in churches and cathedrals, logically suits the religious iconography of The Cloisters, while also mirroring the compound’s collaged nature. Constructed in reference to no singular structure, the Cloisters function as an ensemble of many historical precedents. In the Fuentidueña Chapel, Catalan frescos of the Virgin and Child as well as the Adoration of the Magi cover the walls, and a life-size wooden crucifix hangs at the foot of the 12-century apse. The installation of The Forty Part Motet bridges both centuries and geographic borders.

Banksy sells original works worth a fortune for £38 each in New York booth | Art and design |
British street artist Banksy is no stranger to being in demand with just one of his pieces fetching up to hundreds of thousands of pounds. But it was a different story for the artist, currently in New York on a residency, when he set up a pop-up booth in Central Park on Saturday.

Writing on his website he said: "Yesterday I set up a stall in the park selling 100% authentic original signed Banksy canvases. For $60 [£38] each."
Accompanying these brief words, the elusive artist also released a two-and-a-half minute video showing an elderly man selling what appears to be imitations of his work from a market stall but are in fact genuine Banksy canvases. While the day's takings were only $420 (£263), the valuation of the small to medium-sized canvases that were sold is estimated to be in the region of £140,000.

It's the latest publicity stunt from Banksy, who likes nothing more than stirring up the art world. His 'live' exhibition entitled Better Out Than In: An Artist Residency on the Streets of New York has him creating a new piece of work every day. So far Banksy has produced more than a dozen art pieces and 'events' in New York, including a cattle truck full of shrieking soft toys that was driven around the city.

Ana Mendieta: death of an artist foretold in blood
Until recently, the question asked by those feminist protesters might have been amended to "Who is Ana Mendieta?", so unknown was her art outside the rarefied world of feminist art criticism. But, as the recent big show of her work at the Whitney Museum in New York and the imminent retrospective at the Hayward gallery in London attests, Mendieta is undergoing a reappraisal as a pioneering artist whose work, as the Hayward's artistic director, Ralph Rugoff, notes "ranged nomadically across practices associated with body art, land art, performance, sculpture, photography and film".
Cuban-born and American-raised, Mendieta described her work as "earth-body" art. From 1971, when she had her first solo show while an MA student at the University of Iowa, until her death, she created a diverse collection of work that included silhouettes of her body created in mud, earth, rocks, wild flowers and leaves, performance pieces that evoked the folk and occult traditions of her native Cuba as well as her beloved Mexico and subversive self-portraits that played with notions of beauty, belonging and gender. In her performance pieces, where she sometimes used blood "as a very, powerful magical thing", she evoked the power of female sexuality as well as the horror of male sexual violence. In her photographic self-portraits, she pressed her face against glass to distort her features or pictured herself dripping in blood or disguised as a man with glued-on facial hair.

His work joins that of generational peers such as Rirkrit Tiravanija and Philippe Parreno in defining what critic Nicholas Bourriaud described as “relational aesthetics,” an approach that emphasizes the shifting social role and function of art at the turn of the millennium. Gillick’s work has had a profound impact on a contemporary understanding of how art and architecture influence, and are themselves influenced by, interpersonal communication and interactions in the public sphere.

Picasso's Portrait of Gertrude Stein -
In 1905, Picasso asked her to sit for a portrait, and the results (not Cubist, but representational) were dark, brooding, and strange. Picasso famously said, "Everybody says that she does not look like it but that does not make any difference, she will," which was quoted by Stein in The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas. Stein said later, "I was and still am satisfied with my portrait, for me it is I, and it is the only reproduction of me which is always I, for me." The completion of the portrait marks the beginning of Stein’s interest in portraiture and "resemblance," concepts that would come to influence her writing nearly as much as Picasso’s Cubist philosophies.

Hank Willis Thomas – Parsons Lecture Series – Excerpt 2 of 2 on Vimeo
On March 12, 2013, Aperture Foundation, in collaboration with the School of Art, Media, and Technology at Parsons the New School for Design, was pleased to present an artist talk with Hank Willis Thomas, a photo-conceptual artist working with themes related to identity, history, and popular culture. Appropriation and juxtaposition are two of many strategies with which Thomas orchestrates his interdisciplinary practice. In this video excerpt, Thomas discusses his series Unbranded (2008) which uses advertisements lifted from the pages African-American interest magazines; Thomas subtly reworks them, removing key text, logos, and/or products. The skeletal remains betray immediately the subliminal prejudice common throughout consumer culture.

Ursus Wehrli’s Neat and Tidy World -
Mr. Wehrli’s first two picture books, “Tidying Up Art” and its sequel, “Tidying Up More Art,” present a simple but satisfying sight gag, over and over again, in which he “tidies up” modern masters like Klee and Picasso, Pollock and Haring in a series of “before” and “after” photos. In the “afters,” Mr. Wehrli deconstructs a painting’s components (body parts, say, in a Picasso, or squares in a Klee) and then stacks them in neat, color-specific rows.

Walnut and Iron Hammer - Black Walnut, Cast Iron
Hand tools, both as implements of work and as symbols of a trade, are deeply entrenched in the physical and psychological construction of our history. Their place in our past is secure; however, their future appears less certain. Will these tools become curiosities of our collective past?
Utility -as a body of sculpture-  is a depiction of objects designed for function alone. The reversal of materials, while rendering their function, is an exploration of the meaning of those materials and their literal strengths and weaknesses.
From carving each head to sand-casting each handle, this series is an homage to hand tools, their construction and function. // Each piece is 1:1 rendering of the respective tool.

this is tomorrow - Christian Boltanski: Personnes
Artist : Christian Boltanski
Title : Personnes
[…] Conceived as a work in sound and vision, Personnes takes up a new theme in Boltanski's work, building on his earlier explorations of the limits of human existence and the vital dimension of memory : the question of fate, and the ineluctability of death. Personnes transforms the entire Nave of the Grand Palais through the creation of a coherent, intensely moving installation conceived as a gigantic animated tableau. Personnes is a one-off, ephemeral work. In accordance with the artist's wishes, the components of the piece will all be recycled at the end of the exhibition.
Christian Boltanksi's work is accessible, challenging, and moving. In the Nave of the Grand Palais visitors leave behind the conventional experience of art in a gallery or museum and enter bodily into the installation, becoming a part of the living dramatisation of art and memory. For Boltanski, an artist is "someone who shows the viewer something he already knows deep down, something that's already there inside, something he can bring to the forefront of his consciousness." MONUMENTA 2010 is a theatre of recall, questioning the meaning of human destiny and asserting the right of every individual to a place in the collective memory. […]

Episode 221: Heartland : Bad at Sports
Project Background
In 2007 and 2008, the Heartland curators, eschewing traditional research methods, set out on a series of old-fashioned road trips through the vast center of the United States. These research trips informed two distinct exhibitions. The first presentation, which opened in October 2008 at the Van Abbemuseum in the Netherlands, sought to uncover new ways of thinking about the American interior during the U.S. presidential election and gave European audiences access to a broad survey of the Heartland’s culture, art, and music. The second, reconceived presentation at the Smart Museum, offers U.S. audiences a more focused look at the ideals of resourcefulness and invention that permeate the Heartland. Together, the two presentations offer a richly layered reading of a region that has too often been overlooked.
The exhibition is co-organized by the Smart Museum of Art and the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The Van Abbemuseum’s presentation of Heartland took place from October 3, 2008 to February 8, 2009. In Eindhoven, the project consisted of a group exhibition in the Van Abbemuseum together with a musical program in the Muziekcentrum Frits Philips.

Suminagashi/Paper marbling - Wikipedia
Turkish ebru and Japanese suminagashi do not require mordanting). The colors are thereby transferred and adhered to the surface of the paper or material. The paper or material is then carefully lifted off the size, and hung up to dry. Some marblers gently drag the paper over a rod to draw off the excess size. If necessary, excess bleeding colors and sizing can be rinsed off, and then the paper or fabric is allowed to dry. After the print is made, any color residues remaining on the size are carefully skimmed off of the surface, in order to clear it before starting a new pattern.

Genuine Gold Leaf
When selecting Gold Leaf, it is best to gauge the type of leaf needed by the project at hand. 22 and 23 karat gold do not tarnish, so they do not need a sealer that interferes with the rich lustre of the gold. For interior, decorative and fine art projects 22 karat gold is sufficient. On exterior projects 23 karat is ideal, because when applied correctly and left unsealed a gilded surface can last for decades. For gold with a lower karat count an oil-based sealer is recommended, so that no tarnishing can commence during the varnishing process. Gold leaf is sold in books of 25 leaves meausing 3 3/8 x 3 3/8 sq. One book of gold covers approximately 1.98 sq.ft.

georges Rousse - informations - biography
Georges Rousse is unmistakably a photographer: his photographs are intrinsic to revealing his images, and deciding the composition, cropping and lighting and clicking the shutter are all essential to his process. But he is simultaneously a painter, sculptor, and architect, carrying out the same relationship to his worksites as a painter to his canvas, or a sculptor to his clay or marble.
