la experiencia frente a la memoria...

Daniel Kahneman

"We don’t choose between experiences, we choose between memories of experiences. Even when we think about the future, we don’t think of our future normally as experiences. We think of our future as anticipated memories."

Embestidos por la Armada

15 Noviembre 2014:
«Ha sido un momento de gran tensión. La protesta pacífica de Greenpeace contra el buque perforador de Repsol frente a Fuerteventura y Lanzarote concluía súbitamente. Una activista había sido arrollada por una lancha de la Armada y había caído al agua, sufriendo fracturas y heridas de hélice del bote militar. Otro activista sufría contusiones menores. Y nuestras dos lanchas quedaban inutilizadas
«La embestida ha puesto el punto final a más de un día protegiendo la zona donde el Gobierno español ha permitido a Repsol buscar petróleo frente a las costas de Lanzarote y Fuerteventura. Con dos activistas heridos y dos lanchas inservibles tras la embestida de la Armada, el Arctic Sunrise pone rumbo a puerto, donde se unirá a todos los apoyos en tierra y continuará incansable su denuncia y oposición a las prospecciones de Repsol.

performance Art...

by Alexander Calder
Calder Circus 1926-1931

Soon after moving to Paris in 1926, Calder created his Cirque Calder. Made of wire and a spectrum of found materials, the Cirque was a work of performance art that gained Calder an introduction to the Parisian avant-garde. Calder continued to explore his invention of wire sculpture, whereby he “drew” with wire in three dimensions the portraits of friends, animals, circus themes, and personalities of the day. In 1928, he was given his first solo exhibition of these sculptures at the Weyhe Gallery in New York.

Geometría Radical en Caracas...

por Luis Molina Pantin

«Sin título -Geometría radical en Caracas (2013) es una visión irónica en serie inspirada en el Arte Povera que surge de lo que para mí más se identifica con la Geometría Radical. Durante los últimos 15 meses logré documentar una gran cantidad de colchones citadinos, gracias a la buena resolución de las cámaras de los teléfonos celulares; lo que me permitió volver a la tradición del foto-periodista, cuando todo el día andaba cámara en mano coleccionando imágenes.
A veces cuesta describir el proceso o por qué te llama la atención fotografiar algo. Así me pasó con los colchones. Durante la búsqueda, fue una extraña atracción; el acto de dejarlos en la basura los convierte en unos diarios íntimos abandonados y su limpia forma geométrica automáticamente hace el resto del trabajo.» LMP

The fear that everything has already been done...
by John Koenig, from his Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows: For lack of a better word  a compendium of made-up words. Each original definition aims to fill a hole in the language, to give a name to an emotion we all feel but don’t have a word for.

vemödalen - n. the frustration of photographing something amazing when thousands of identical photos already exist--the same sunset, the same waterfall, the same curve of a hip, the same closeup of an eye--which can turn a unique subject into something hollow and pulpy and cheap, like a mass-produced piece of furniture you happen to have assembled yourself.
ETYMOLOGYFrom Swedish vemod, "tender sadness, pensive melancholy" + Vemdalen, the name of a Swedish town (which is IKEA's product naming convention). The umlaut isn't proper Swedish, but I liked the idea of a little astonished face (ö) sitting in the middle of the word. And also, c'mon, you can't have an IKEA metaphør without some sort of diÃ¥critïc. 

"You are unique. And there are seven billion others, just as unique as you. Each of us is different, with some new angle on the world. But what does it mean if the lives we're busy shaping by hand, all end up looking the same-easily replaced by a thousand identical others?
So we all spread out, looking for scraps of frontier, trying to capture something special, something personal. As if we're afraid of being captured ourselves-so quickly pegged for exactly what we are-so easily mistaken for someone ordinary, just like everyone else.
It should be a comfort that we're not so different, that our perspectives so neatly align, that these same images keep showing up, again and again.
It's alright if we tell the same jokes we've all heard before, it's alright if we keep remaking the same movies. it's alright if we keep saying the same phrases to each other, as if they had never been said before.
"The powerful play goes on, and you will contribute a verse." And you and I and seven billion others will leave our mark on this world we've inherited. But if, in the end, we find ourselves with nothing left to say, nothing new to add, idly tracing outlines left by others long ago, it will be as if we weren't here at all.
This too has been said many times before. The powerful play goes on. And when you get your cue, you say your line.
