L: St. Vincent - “Birth In Reverse” live on SNL

Dude, St. Vincent is such a great performer. Not that “Birth In Reverse” ever needed any enlivening or more animation, but I am way into the slightly creepy robotic theme she has going here. Annie Clark is already someone I admire as a musical artist, but to be impressed by her attention to aesthetic detail during a show as well?? Old news to everyone but me, I think.

What if your heart could beat perfectly until your last days? Theoretically, that’s now possible.Scientists at Washington University and University of Illinois have combined electrical engineering, 3D printing, and biology to create a custom thin mesh of electrodes that lays over the heart to correct improper cardiac impulses, ensuring the heart beats the right way every time. This has huge implications for patients who suffer from myocardial infarctions, arrhythmias, and more.

Daniel Canogar: Small Data, 2014 

Small Data is composed of a series of salvaged electronic devices (old cell phones, broken computer screens and printers, cracked hard discs, etc.), onto which an overhead projection is cast. The projections, precisely aimed at the devices, animate and seemingly give new life to the abandoned technologies. The artist works like an archeologist, pulling out the found items from piles of discarded materials in junkyards and recycling centers (veritable cemeteries for consumer electronics) and organizes them on shelves as if they were fragile remnants of a bygone era.

Issues related to memory and identity are explored in this group of artworks. As communication tools with the outside world, and as repositories for so many of our thoughts, we acquire a very intimate relationship with the technological devices present in the artworks. Haunted by their past, the artist attempts to reveal memories, both personal and collective, that seem trapped within, mementos of a time when they had fully functional lives and served us well.

Small Data explores the life and death of consumer electronics, and how when we discard our devices, we are throwing out a small part of ourselves.

Twilight Lovers (1994) by Tina Fiveash
Inspired by ‘Girl’s Own’ annuals and the Australian Women’s Weekly magazine from the 1950s, Stories for Girls is a tongue-in-cheek attempt to recreate missing lesbian photographic history from an era where homosexuality was a criminal offense, and lesbians were forced to remain in the closet and keep their relationships hidden from society.

aw fuck
