Query is a new board game where players earn points for identifying google’s top internet search predictions and for fooling others into choosing their carefully crafted answers. knowing the type of results that can be generated, i’m not sure how i would actually feel at winning this game… but i sure would like to find out!

the ALS ice bucket challange… a great way to cool down on such a hot day. (it’s 91 here in oakland. ridiculousness.)

a beautiful selection of 8mm film shot by the now celebrated photographer Vivian Maier. as with all her work, there is a quiet sophistication to these shots, an emotion that stands in stark contrast to the chaotic bickering that has unfortunately become her legacy.

watch an exclusive trailer for the new documentary about the life and work of artist David Hockney. The film, simply entitled Hockney, will allow viewers a peek into the artists personal archives and a look around his studio where the 77 year old artist still paints each and every day. it will also examine the painters formative years in the british pop-art scene, as well as his experience of being a gay man during the AIDS crisis.

Screenshot 2014-09-22 at 6.16.28 PMRafaël Rozendaal is a multimedia artist who creates all kinds of interesting works. some of my favorites are his (sometimes) interactive, dedicated webpages like you see above. (if no yes, 2013. collection of Benjamine Palmer & Elizabeth Valleau). i guess i just like the idea of it’s accessibility and permanence… two things that are all too uncommon if not unheard of in art.

Alex Bacon in conversation with Jarrett Earnest which argues Jerry Saltz & Co. cynical and shallow stance of “everything looks the same because that’s what sells“, and is the best damn piece of art criticism i have read in years.
