“What is Yours is Mine”
Doug Weathersby (Environmental Services)
DODGEgallery, 15 Rivington St., NYC
sculptures, photographs and an installation documenting the past six months of a major collaborative undertaking: a series of studio visits and exchanges with artists who have exhibited at DODGEgallery—Dave Cole, Taylor Davis, Darren Blackstone Foote, Sheila Gallagher, Eddie Martinez, Jason Middlebrook and Cordy Ryman. During each visit, Weathersby learned about the artist and their practice, photographically documented their spaces and collected scraps and discards from the studio. In return, he offered to perform a task that would be helpful to the artist he visited; be it delivering art or cleaning up their space. Regardless of what he was given, Weathersby abided by one rule: he must use everything that he recovered from each studio in What is Yours is Mine. Using this unwanted detritus, including components of failed art works, Weathersby composed bizarre sculptures, keeping in mind the nature of each artist’s practice as he worked. - thru Feb 17
Siobhan Rosen lays out the perils of dating nerd-holes:
If you suspect you might be one of the unsavory types of nerds, ask yourself a few questions: Do you see yourself as a perpetual underdog in life’s great battle to get action? Do you believe your underdog status entitles you to enact a sort of psychosexual revenge against those who have historically prevented you from getting laid (i.e., women)? Congratulations! You are probably a nerd, and also kind of a dick. Please let me offer some unsolicited advice: There are better ways to work through your childhood torments—like, say, bouncing a basketball or visiting a nice lady with a soothing voice and a prescription pad. You might also consider dropping the whole sensitive, emotionally intelligent, unlucky-in-love mensch act if you’re really just looking to add another stain to your Transformerssheets. Women don’t mind the occasional cad, if we know what we’re dealing with from the get-go. In short: Be honest about who you are. Real men might talk about Jedi mind tricks, but they don’t use them.
What will the city of the future look like? According to the United Nations, by the year of 2050, 70% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas. Questions dominate our conception of the “City 2.0”: How will we transport ourselves? Where will we grow our food? How will we power our homes, our offices, our cities? What will happen to the natural world?
On October 13, 2012, communities across the globe will be asking these questions as part of TEDxCity2.0 day, a day during which nearly 70 TEDx events will be held in conjunction to dream the city of the future.
To celebrate the City 2.0 and the spirit of urban inspiration, here are 5 great TEDxTalks on the future of cities across the globe.
Ours is a life of constant reruns. We’re always circling back to where we’d we started,then starting all over again. Even if we don’t run extra laps that day,we surely will come back for more of the same another day soon.
Hello, I would like to share experiences and talk about anything really. I’m interested in knowing what other people in other parts of the world are doing? Shoot me a message if interested
