Tony Conrad, Yellow Movie 12/17/72 If, as Tony Conrad might have us suppose, a Movie is light and any marking of the passage of time, what is Documentary Cinema as a category? In fact, the Minimalist structural filmmaking practices of Conrad and others share concerns with documentary's base impulse, namely the transmission of a "factual record or report." As screen culture settles into its well-earned ubiquity, we must revisit old questions about the where and the what of cinema as an object and what constitutes something separately known as the "cinematic." All cinema is, on some level, depictive, not necessarily by choice, but rather by inevitability. As fictional as any narrative may assert itself to be, it is also a real event.

One of these is that Generation Y doesn't seem to enjoy purchasing things. The Atlantic's article "Why Don't Young Americans Buy Cars?" mused recently about Millennials' tendency to not care about owning a vehicle. The subtitle: "Is this a generational shift, or just a lousy economy at work?" What if it's not an "age thing" at all?

Check Out People At The Human Library This month the University of Rochester will be hosting its first Human Library or as I like to call it, Hoomun Libarry.

All Stories by Zeynep Tufekci The Media Needs to Stop Inspiring Copycat Murders. Here's How. After a wave of teen suicides in the 1980s, news outlets began reporting on these deaths more cautiously. Similar guidelines could help prevent more shooting sprees. Social Media's Small, Positive Role in Human Relationships It's just one factor in modern life that can increase connection in a world divided by the vagaries of capitalism, the disengagement of television, and the isolation of suburban sprawl.

MOUSSE CONTEMPORARY ART MAGAZINE Recently, the Miami-based artist Jillian Mayer shared with me selfeed.com, 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.

How Much Should You Charge For Design Work? You can learn a lot about the business end of design and illustration by trial and error and reading articles and books, but one thing that is seemingly impossible to get a grasp on is pricing. Whether you are a student, a young designer, or a seasoned pro, pricing jobs can be one of the most frustrating parts of the creative process. The cost of creative work is shrouded in mystery and very subjective. Coilhouse “Alternative subcultures. They were a crucial aspect of industrial civilization in the two previous centuries. They were where industrial civilization went to dream. A sort of unconscious R&D, exploring alternative social strategies … but they became extinct.” “Extinct?”
