Bookish: On the Art World's Publishing Boom
ARTnews
Depending on how you look at it, the art-book industry is either in precarious straits or the midst of a golden age. Brick-and-mortar bookstores specializing in art books continue to close, giving way to online purveyors like Amazon, which don't do so well with pricy art tomes. And traditional trade publishers have cut back on funding art titles. Meanwhile, blue-chip galleries, flush with cash in a booming art market, have picked up the slack with increasingly ambitious publishing programs.

How Art Reveals the Limits of Neuroscience
Chronicle Review
These days neural approaches to art are all the rage. We find it compelling to think that the brain holds the answers to the questions about everything that matters to us, including art. It's hard not to be impressed by the excitement scientists feel as they try to hunt down aesthetic experience in the brain using the advanced methods and technologies of cognitive science. But art is an elusive quarry, and it leaves its clumsy predator flailing in the dust.

The Brave New Museum Sputters into Life
Wall Street Journal
With so many visitors—particularly the young—obsessively attached to digital devices as instruments of learning and sharing, even the most traditional art museum officials can no longer deny the imperative for technological interventions in what used to be a relatively unmediated relationship between viewer and object. First there were audio guides and websites. Now art museums are embracing everything from apps to robots to interactive pens, hoping to discern how best to enhance the gallery experience for savvy digerati, without ruining it for diehard technophobes.

Why Art School Can Be a Smart Career Move
Forbes
Art-school grads aren't the highest earners overall, but neither are they doomed to become starving artists. "There's a ton of evidence that prospects for graduates from art schools today are better than they've ever been before in terms of income, their ability to survive economic turbulence, and their preparedness for the job market of the 2020s," says Jennifer Lena, a Columbia University professor who is senior research scholar for the Strategic National Arts Alumni Project.

The International Fight over Marcel Duchamp's Chess Set
The Atlantic
In the process of researching Marcel Duchamp's chess life for a commissioned art project, Scott Kildall found old pictures of the artist's own hand-carved chess set, created around 1917. He loved the aesthetic and wanted to recreate the beautiful objects. So Kildall turned to another digital-fabrication artist, Bryan Cera, to work out how to model 3D-printable versions derived from the archival pictures.

The Google Art Heist
New York Times
The more playful Google gets, the more paranoid I get. So when I heard that, building on its plan to digitize all books, Google had opened a Cultural Institute in Paris to digitally replicate and curate all art and culture on earth, I wanted to check it out. From the most famous paintings of the Uffizi to an archive of South Korean film to virtual galleries of the pyramids, the institute has already amassed an impressive collection.

Peer Review, Preprints, and the Speed of Science
The Guardian
A few weeks ago my collaborators and I submitted our latest paper to a scientific journal. We have been investigating how noroviruses subvert the molecular machinery of infected cells and have some interesting results. If it passes peer review, our paper could be published in three or four months' time. If it's rejected, we may have to rework the manuscript before trying our luck with another journal. That will delay publication even further—it's not unheard of for papers to take a year or more to get out of the lab and into the world, even in the digital age.
