Seeing in circles (camera + drill)

By Oscar Lhermitte

Looking at the different ways to shoot videos. Part of a workshop at the RCA led by Rosario Hurtado and Quique Corrales. May 2010. Instead of making a normal movie, I am trying to get a colour gradient of what the camera is shooting. There is no postproduction involved, the effect is achieved by connecting the lens of the camera to a drilling machine. The video is taking 15 frames per second, whereas the drill is spinning at more than 20 turn per second.

The coffee shop is the future of . . . well, everything

The argument that work is increasingly untethered from the office and will take place more and more in coffee shop–type environments is pretty common, but one futurist is taking “coffeeshopification” a step further, claiming that universities and retail stores will resemble coffee shops as well.

Allen Ginsberg Inscription to Timothy Leary

Sjg

For Timothy & Barbara Leary amid the noise of kisses and chatter in H’wood late evening in March, dining with Agents photographers, poets, reprobate-politicos intelligent wives, beautiful feet & noses, candle light, salad, champagne Rock ‘n roll bands coming out of our mouths all of us complete successful failures.

March 11, 1985 Allen Ginsberg

(1) Refuge name: Lion of Dharma

(2) Bodhisattva name: Heart of Peace

Stephen Gertz at Booktryst posted this & did a perfect job transcribing. He queries why Allen’d capitalized Agents and we do too. Sometimes Allen capitalized randomly, more often not. This was right after Collected Poems 1947-1980 was published, and Allen’s new agent Andrew Wylie hand engineered a huge book deal for Allen with Harper Collins, so quite possibly Wylie was on his mind when signing that book.

This copy of Ginsberg’s Collected Poems 1947-1980 was being offered by Benjamin Spademan, who was asking £5,000 ($7,400)
