Review of “C.R.E.A.M.” at Art Micro-Patronage "“Over twenty years have passed since net art first appeared on the screen,” she writes, “and we still don’t have an established system for buying and selling it.” It’s a huge issue, because it’s awfully hard to make decent art as a second job. Without an established market, there’s little potential for supporting any more than a handful of net artists in the long run; without net artists, it’s tough to have net art."

However, instead of producing an image, this prototype outputs a text description of the scene. Modern digital cameras capture gobs of parsable metadata about photos such as the camera’s settings, the location of the photo, the date, and time, but they don’t output any information about the content of the photo.

From Philip Glass to Patti Smith, How 1970s New York Shaped Music for Decades to…
My review of a great music book by Will Hermes.
Punk rock and hip-hop. Disco and salsa. The loft jazz scene and the downtown composers known as Minimalists. In the mid-1970s, New York City was a laboratory where all the major styles of modern music were reinvented—all at once, from one block to the next, by musicians who knew, admired, and borrowed from one another. Crime was everywhere, the government was broke, and the city’s infrastructure was collapsing. But rent was cheap, and the possibilities for musical exploration were limitless.
