I’ve been blogging compulsively Tuesday mornings Washington State Time for almost three years. I’m afraid I’m losing my bark.
I imagine from time to time I’ll get it back, but I seem to be recovering from compulsivity.
For now, I’m thinking about interactive and prankish art.
First is a slice of German mischief:
Do you know about the fabulous Charlie Todd and his project Improv Everywhere? Watch what he’s been up to and you won’t be able to help but fall harder in love with the world:
Charlie Todd hates it when people assume he does his improv interventions due to having too much time on his hands. You might feel guilty from time to time for not doing something more practical with your time, something more useful. But at least some of us don’t have any abilities with which to accomplish much that’s useful. How must hilarious, ingenious, impish Aparna Rao feel? (And in case you teach and didn’t know, check out the awesome TED-ed teaching tools):
Finally, if you haven’t seen the documentary, Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present, just do. It will very likely inspire you and make you feel like you need to be even more devoted to art making than you already are.
