Re: Here is ramdomthought!

returning back to the rural/work from home dialectic, i was reading some schumacher essays (a bit anachronistic since they are from 1973), but quite poignant in the points brought up This reminds me of a book that I read a long time ago, written by some Marxist whose name I can't remember, that loo...

Re: Here is ramdomthought!

Re: What are you reading today/book club

snip i find it really cool/impressive that you picked up anti-o and started reading it. it was always my least favourite book by deleuze and, because he's taking shots at so many schools of thought that i'm not overly familiar with (lacanian psychoanalysis being the big one), i always found it diff...

Re: New Years Resolutions

i started working out which involves running on the treadmill for 25 mins before vomiting profusely

down to 4 cigarettes per day, which is helping w/ the treadmill thing

Re: Photography thread

it's true that camera lucida can come across a bit dated because of barthes' assertions that photographs grant us some kind of unmediated access to the referent. that said, medium specific arguments in general aren't popular in theory (because they're usually bad). the idea is that affect is in some...

Re: Photography thread

camera lucida paved the way for understanding the preconscious affects of the image. it literally could not be more relevant. once again the world needs theorists to explain art to art people edit: fred moten uses camera lucida to talk about the sonics of photography, for e.g. https://acrowdgathers....

With film if you make a mistake then that's kind of it, very rarely will i ever shoot doubles as its a waste of money. roland barthes says that the mistake is the entire point of photography Hence the detail which interests me is not, or at least is not strictly, intentional, and probably must not ...
