During your Systems working time over the next week, listen to the following podcast. It has two parts. I’ve linked to both.

Listen to an new interview with illustrator and author, Kate Bingaman Burt. Remember? We saw her work at the beginning of the term—she is the artist that draws everything she purchases.

 

VISUALIZING TIME
Within your adapted directives many of you are dealing with issues of time, specifically how to map or visualize time (process). Here is some inspiration.
Keep on making.

THE NUTTY THINGS ARTISTS DO
If you didn’t get the chance to see a screening of Tim’s Vermeer in Guelph, I highly recommend you see it somehow. (Allanah? I think I saw you leaving the 7:30 screening while I was in line for the later show).

When you feel burdened by a project, when you feel you’ve bit off more than you can chew, use this film for comparison and ask yourself:

• Am I learning Dutch?
• Am I making and grinding my own lenses?
• Am I attempting to recreate a painting by a master, when I have no training in painting whatsoever?

Sarah, maybe you want to make a info-graphic flo chart for all of us? Am I making and grinding my own lenses using only antiquated technology? If no, quit complaining and get back to work.

 

Weekly Roundup

1. THIS!
Want to list your precious objects (your hostages as Miranda July says) in the comments?

2. I’m underlining this text because Google has decided to no longer underline search results anymore. More info here.

3. For Sarah…or
• anyone who uses Twitter or
• anyone who thinks that Twitter users are a representative sample of the population (they’re not) or
• anyone interested in info-graphics or interactive graphics

The Pew Research Internet Project completed an extensive analysis of Twitter users: Mapping Twitter Topic Networks: From Polarized Crowds to Community Clusters.
I’m linking to the summary page, but Sarah you might be specifically interested in the info graphics. The linking is a bit wonky–scroll down in the main summary page and click on the graphic of the infographics, that will eventually link to interactive versions.

The interactive versions are really beautiful, if a bit confounding.
