Shizuka Yokomizo, Dear Strangers
Dear Stranger, I am an artist working on a photographic project which involves people I do not know. I would like to take a photograph of you standing in your front room from the street in the evening. A camera will be set outside the window on the street. If you do not mind being photographed, please stand in the room and look into the camera through the window for 10 minutes on [date and time]. I will take your picture and then leave… we will remain strangers to each other. If you do not want to get involved, please simply draw your curtains to show your refusal. I really hope to see you from the window.
rob: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mihaly_Csikszentmihalyi#Flow I have a problem with this.
rob: The problem is a low challenge level with a high skill can be relaxing, like taking out the trash, but there is a level of stress involved in doing something that is below my skill level and I find it stupid and boring, and I feel apathy more than anything.
rob: ‘It just has to happen’
gwil: Sorry wait
gwil: you have high skill in taking out the trash?
Are you sure you mean ant christ? I mocked that up for you, so we can see if that’s what you’re talking about. Just checking.
I wanted to do something special for my 1,000th post on this Tumblr blog, but everything that I feel right now is perfectly expressed in this video.
Thanks for bearing with me, all those years!
My dear friend Sam is finally going full-time on his personal endeavours, which I have been looking forward to for a long time. I suggest following his projects as soon as you can, he is working on some magical things.
This is not a tell-all blog post about personal redemption in the weird world of a large international legal organisation. My two years at the UN have been good, and I’ve made friends with many wonderful illuminati members.
But it feels like the right time to finish. Send my love to Ban ki, Kofi and the boys. Forward any mail for me directly into a furnace. Throw my security pass beepy-thing into the sea. Because Gwilco’s going full-time.
Uh-huh. I see. Yeah.
gwil: i would like to produce a magazine like that with the title being “kill everyone” in fluorescent pink
rob: But uhm
rob: I can oblige
Who the fuck builds a Stonehenge?
