Harry Pointer During the 1870s, the Brighton photographer Harry Pointer (1822-1889) became well known for a series of carte-de-visite photographs which featured his pet cats. Pointer began by taking conventional photographs of cats resting, drinking milk or sleeping in a basket, but from around 1870 he specialised in photographing cats in a variety of poses, placing his cats in settings that would create a humorous or appealing picture. Pointer often arranged his cats in unusual poses that mimicked human activities - a cat riding a tricycle, cats roller-skating and even a cat taking a photograph with a camera. Harry Pointer soon realised that even a relatively straight-forward cat photograph could be turned into an amusing or appealing image by adding a written caption. Pointer increased the commercial potential of his cat pictures by adding a written greeting such as "A Happy New Year" or "Very many happy returns of the day". [PHOTO : Courtesy of Philippe Garner]

The Space and Time of Performance: Foucault’s “Heterotopia” I’ve been rereading Michel Foucault’s “Different Spaces” for a paper I’ve been working on and reading it after having read some of the texts for my performance theory class, I’m finding some interesting new connections. This is part of my favorite part of being a graduate student…rereading something even a few months after first reading it and already being able to form new ideas and connections based on just a few short months of knowledge building. In this piece, Foucault defines “heterotopia,” a term he coins to describe real space that seems somehow out of sync with its surround society. Can the “Academy” be considered a heterotopia? After defining heterotopia, Foucault gives several examples and fundamental principles of these spaces. One of his main examples is the theater, used to explain his third principle of heterotopias: “The heterotopia has the ability to juxtapose in a single real place several emplacements that are incompatible in themselves.
