magazine / archive | MOUSSE CONTEMPORARY ART MAGAZINE Recently, the Miami-based artist Jillian Mayer shared with me, a project that she, Erik Carter, and Tyler Madsen premiered in January 2014 at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts. The site is a real-time stream of images tagged #selfie on Instagram, a continuous cycle of faces from around the planet, at all hours, in all poses, in any number of social configurations: lonely teens in bathrooms, group shots in hallway mirrors, couples at dinner, bros at the game. The stream moves too quickly for any one selfie to stand out. Instead, faces race across the screen, blurring into one another, smiles, eyes, facial hair, until a single, delirious visual object seems to emerge—one that John Kelsey recently described as “our finest and final hallucination, the ultimate transitional object” in the “bright ruins of a constantly refreshed now.” [1] The selfie has migrated across platforms and is now the most common, if not essential, unit of all social media.

Modern Art Obsession The Best Books about PhotoBooks!! So.. at MAO we got an email the other day asking what the best resources are for collecting photobooks. Sadly.. we accidentally deleted this person's email.. SHIT...OOPS! BUT, Since it's a good topic, we thought it was worthwhile of a full posting filled with our vapid, self serving studied thoughts on this important topic. FYI.. OK.. 1. Century. This is the book which set the standard for photobook reference guides. With 2 to 4 pages for each book, the textbook is well researched.. and has put together some of the best minds on the topic of important photography books. This is a MUST have for any serious photobook collector. FYI.. this reference book has also been largely responsible for increasing the prices ten fold for any photobook even mentioned inside these pages. 2. Hasselblad Center, Goteberg, 2005. 423 pp., 404 illustrations, 8x10". The book was published in conjunction with the Hasselblad Center. Sadly we missed this show in 2005! but, 3. 4. 5. 6.
