Great essay by Polyphonic on how the Talking Heads wrote “Once in a lifetime.” Such a great song…
Wow, this is amazing. Also, I can't believe it's November already....
Really good video about Dylan. Lots of ideas in here.
For more than a decade, each new Polaroid product prompted Samaras to embark on a fresh suite of experiments. Panorama belongs to a series he began in 1982. For each image the artist made several eight-by-ten-inch Polaroids of a single figure. He then cut each print into strips of equal width and reassembled them to create an elongated hybrid image. This simple technique stretches the figure as a fun-house mirror would, yielding the quality of theatrical fantasy that permeates all of Samaras's work.
Since the late 1970's Zeke Berman has been making singular, studio-based photographs. These works reflect his long standing interest in visual cognition, optics and the intersection between sculpture, photography and drawing. The formal range of his work, and his sculptural use of materials is varried, original and idiosyncratic.

Big fan of his work, would love to track this down to watch. Can't belive I just found it today. I feel like I must have been living under a rock.
