James Bridle, Homo Sacer, 2014

“The cloud renders geography irrelevant—until you realize that everything that matters, everything that means you don’t die, is based not only on which passport you possess, but on a complex web of definitions of what constitutes that passport.”

"Moving image is clearly still a term that’s up-for-grabs. Film, meanwhile, is an interesting case as a moving image because it’s static images that appear to move at 24 frames per second. Movement is an illusion. This history emerges out of photography, namely Eadward Muybridge who took sequential photographs of bodies in motion—the human body, of horses, of people wrestling, dancing, and so on—and animated them in his machine, the zoopraxiscope."
From cat gifs to Eadward Muybridge, what exactly does the term “the moving image” encompass?

"Laugh at Death": Our interview with Belgian artist Kris Martin on the human skeleton he buried on the Walker hillside, his clapperless bell, and a favorite film—fittingly, Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life.

Walker Art Center design director Emmet Byrne interviews Westboro Baptist Church’s designer: “I confess a perverse curiosity about the subject, not to mention the irony of a homo talking to a bigot about the medium and not the message. Is there anything to be learned about design from someone whose values are so radically different than my own?”
