How Art Can Bridge the Digital "Divide"
Wired    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Like writers embracing digital platforms, musicians embracing digital music, or photographers embracing digital photography, art based on new media often just did—and still does—old things in new ways. The art critic Claire Bishop also made this observation on the "digital divide" in art, further noting that: "While many artists use digital technology, how many really confront the question of what it means to think, see, and filter affect through the digital?"

Brooklyn Museum Finds Some Problematic Gifts Can't Be Returned
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Brooklyn Museum seemed to have garnered a bonanza in 1932 when it received a large bequest from the estate of Col. Michael Friedsam, president of the elegant retail emporium B. Altman. But eight decades later that cache of Dutch and Renaissance paintings, Chinese porcelains, jewelry, and furniture has become something of a burden. A quarter of the 926 works have turned out to be fakes, misattributions, or of poor quality, and the museum potentially faces a hefty bill to store the 229 pieces it no longer wants. More

From Palate to Palette: Can Food Be Art?
Createquity    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Last night, I cooked broccoli rabe with caramelized onions and vegan fennel sausage, along with a creamy parmesan polenta and a crusty whole wheat rosemary bread made from the Camaldoli sourdough culture that I feed flour to each day. Like many artists I know, I love to cook and often spend between one and two hours making dinner each night. I once felt guilty about this—worried that my time would be better spent in my studio drawing or printing or otherwise making art—but then I came to see that making food—combining textures, flavors, scents, and colors—is also creative.

Copyright Suit Pits Fair Use against Unlicensed Distribution
PC World    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Digital civil-rights groups asked a federal court in New York to reject what they call an attempt by the Associated Press to restrict fair use of content on the internet. "If adopted by this or any other court, this view would sharply curtail the essential role fair use plays in facilitating online innovation and expression, restricting the use and development of services that allow users to find, organize, and share public information, services that depend on making intermediate copies, and even personal consumer uses such as time-shifting," argues an amicus brief filed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Public Knowledge, and the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society.
