Library of Dust, a new book by artist David Maisel, is a beautiful collection of photographed ephemera….can you guess what these are? i thought they were corroded batteries which i guess isn’t far off in a Matrix kind of way…

apparantly, in the early 1900’s, a state psychiatric institution in oregon had an overwhelming number of unclaimed dead. these cremated remains were stored in copper canisters, stacked in a room and forgotten about. over time the copper  began to chemically react with the human ashes resulting in these colorful mineral outgrowths.

……………………………
on the subject of dead things, my mom and i went to hollywood cemetery and i took a bunch of pictures. my mom was telling me that after world war II, many graveyards were redesigned as parks to attract visitors. known as the “rural” or “garden” style, the rolling hills and effortless landscaping makes “families seem gathered in eternal care-free country outings”.
my step father proposed to my mother here.

sneaky…

found on hyptyo blog….

this video from the New York Times discusses japanese photographer Kohei Yoshiyuki. in this body of work from the 1970’s, Yoshiyuki documents couples having sex in public parks in tokyo and the peeping toms who watch them.

What is so striking … is that everyone is crossing the line. The couples who engage in sex in public, the peeping toms who tresspass on that intimacy, the photographer who has betrayed his acquaintances’ trust, and of course, us, so willing to look at what was not meant for us to see.

…………………………………….
and then in 2008, we see Steven Meisel reference Yoshiyuki for a layout for Vogue Italy…
Meisel is also the photographer who made that sex book with madonna…picture
in 2006, Meisel created another Vogue photo set, state of emergency, a commentary on post-9/11 security.

i love it.
it infiltrates you in this adbusters/sneak attack kind of way.
