“Images…are not primarily manifestations of the properties of a certain technical medium, but operations: relations between a whole and parts; between a visibility and a power of signification and affect associated with it; between expectations and what happens to meet them.”—Jacques Rancière, The Future of the Image, 2007 (via overnightbivouac)
"The world as a foamy space filled with bubbles and balloons of different scales and qualities. This capsular society and its phenomena such as global provincialism, the politics of climatization and social uteri describe a new paradigm that requires not just a reconsideration of the technologies and economics of the building envelope but of its political social and psychological implications." Peter Sloterdijk
Something about the images. Very interesting in a context like tumblr:
“We do not explain images; they help us think. The processual event that we carry out highlights both what the images produce (in us) or provoke in a certain network of relations, and what we can do with them when we share them, move them, or generate with/side by side to/by means of them a rewriting of narratives – as is our case. We have freed the images from the indignity of becoming ‘illustrations’, so they can go on to prove the power of display, not only inherent to editing (montage) as an epistemological tool (Didi-Huberman), but also – to follow Bohem –, to the quality of ‘showing’ that is typical of images: the power they have, in addition, to point to something that is not there.”
Hello. You posted something on the artist Alyssa Monks a couple of years ago. I was so in love with her artwork I contacted her asking about some prints and originals and about the painting you posted on...Turns out its not one of her pieces. I was just wondering where it is you originally found this image? As I would love to track down the artist. Thanks, hopefully you read this and get back to me.
