2022 ::: day 3 “bat”

Golden phosphorescent works but hard to photograph well, so until I do, here's today's picture by day.

2022 ::: day 2 "Scurry"

A quick one - pigment liner on bleed-proof paper.

@axbom actually, it has been brought to my attention that this archive included illegal material such as child pornography. My objections don’t extend to defending the preservation of that material.

Seems like there’s a few matters that can turn a 16-bit ethical question into black & white (and that’s one of them).

@axbom I’m glad to see them deplatformed, but am conflicted by one part of this story.

What are your thoughts on sites being wiped from the internet archive? Is the toxicity of this example doing ongoing harm there that outweighs the interests of preserving this history?

It's official- the studio I work for is shuttering in a month.

- A programmer with a background in music / audio technology

- An Art Hacker with gallery / museum experience

for paid work, I would deeply appreciate the connection

Boosts much appreciated.

My hypothesis about the resistence to the word "hypothesis" is that to use it, you need to be comfortable with being in a state of uncertainty.

To me, that's the super power of the designer that many of our business partner stakeholders are not adept at.

But I may be wrong on all those assumptions.
