MATERIAL WORLD (in progress) : Photography by David Welch Material World takes influence from the Marxist concept “Objectification”. This concept marks a transformative relationship between humankind and nature where individuals manifest their activities into materially existing forms. To Marx, these forms serve as mirrors for self-understanding through contemplation and reflection, progressive steps towards our enhanced capacity as human beings. A rupture in this process occurs within our contemporary society, as many individuals do not own the means of their own objectification potential. The means of production—the private ownership of tools and resources—rest in the hands of a small minority and the majority of individuals are left to produce in the image of another’s interest. What results is an influx of aura-less objects distributed to marketplaces.

Each Line One Breath: Morphogenetic Freehand Drawings By John Franzen In his series of drawings titled Each Line One Breath, Netherlands-based artist John Franzen creates textured drawings remeniscent of wrinkled fabric or waves of water by drawing tediously placed rows of lines with black ink. The artist begins by drawing a single vertical line on the far side of a canvas but on subsequent lines allows for various imperfections to become amplified or suppressed as he continues, line after line. The process, which might look maddening, actually appears to be a sort of meditative effort for Franzen who works with almost robotic precision. Watch the two videos above to see how he works.

Hyperbole and a Half: Sneaky Hate Spiral Most of the time, I'm pretty even-tempered. Aside from the odd nervous breakdown or caffeine-induced bliss-seizure, I have the emotional variation of sand. However, every once in a great while, I'll lapse into what I like to call a "sneaky hate spiral." The buildup: Sneaky hate spirals begin simply enough.
