Steven Sebring’s show Illumination: Who Are Poets at Milk Studios.

Along with poet and musician Patti Smith, Sebring overtook the Milk Gallery for 3 days to create the installation. High and low, friends came to see the art, watch the performances and participate in a celebration of a historic and world-changing generation.

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.

Kubrick’s striking black and white images of 1940s New York City — which were often shot on the sly, his camera concealed in a paper bag with a hole in it — hint at the dark beauty and psychological drama of his later creative output. Now, VandM is making 25 select prints from the nearly 10,000 photos that he took as a young man available for purchase for the first time. The majority of the proceeds going to the Museum of the City of New York.

Gil Scott-Heron’s Letter-Poem to the Heads of TVT Records

Back in 1997, TVT Records decided to reissue a handful of Gil Scott-Heron‘s albums — namely, Winter In AmericaThe First Minute of a New DayFrom South Africa to South CarolinaIt’s Your World, and The Mind of Gil Scott-Heron. On March 27th, prior to signing the contract and receiving his advance, a clearly enthused Scott-Heron took some time to write the following letter of thanks to three of the record executives involved in the deal.

Just delightful.
