    Hodge Kirnon, the elevator operator at 291 (Alfred Stieglitz’s gallery, opened 1905), in response to the question, “What is 291?”: “I have found in ’291′ a spirit which fosters liberty, defines no methods, never pretends to know, never condemns, but always encourages those who are daring enough to be intrepid; those who feel a just repugnance towards the ideals and standards established by convention.”

    “We can begin with Latour’s well-known remark: ‘the fate of what we say and make is in later users” hands.’ (Science in Action, p. 29) He is talking about scientific facts, but the remark is equally applicable to works of art. Once we pass the point we have chosen as the pivot between upstream and downstream–a common and good place to put that point is when the work leaves the hands of the one conventionally identified as the creator…”

    Over a lifetime that lasted from 1760 to 1849, the great Japanese painter Hokusai changed his name roughly 30 times. The final name he chose meant “the old man mad about art.”

    “The problem now is not the lack of critical spirit, but the opposite, in other words, trust. We are not in a situation that demonstrates an abundance of trust; we are, instead, in a vacuum in which it is important to regain trust.”

  • Flusser via Hopkins  Tags: link,   July 22, 2013 Permalink

    “Images are sources of power and have the ability to confront history. For philosopher, Vilém Flusser the space and time particular to the image is “the world of magic.” In his writings, he sets up an opposition between magic and history. “The space and time peculiar to the image is none other than the world of magic, a world in which everything is repeated and in which everything participates in a significant context.” He goes on to specify, “such a world is structurally different than that of the linear world of history in which nothing is repeated and in which everything has causes and will have consequences.” With regards to technical images (those mechanically reproduced images, including moving images, emerging in the nineteenth century century), Flusser suggests that they were invented “during a crisis of texts, in order to make texts comprehensible again, to put them under a magic spell.” It was this “magic spell” that was key, for it contained the means to overcome the crisis of history. ”

    Evidence is the result of a two-year investigation of over two million archive photographs. The result is a photographic narrative comprised only of images selected from corporate and institutional archives (primarily on the west coast) including government departments, the military, scientific research establishments, law enforcement agencies (Bechtel, TRW, Jet Propulsion Laboratories, Aeronutronic Ford, United Technologies, and the Los Angeles Police Department are but a few examples). A project by Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel.
