what’s going on

over the past week, i’ve read far too much ‘ryan lochte olympic scandal’ coverage, and far too much ‘marina abramovic insults the entire agoriginal and torres strait islander community’ coverage, but at least it means my consumption of ‘oh my god donald trump’ coverage has gone down, proving there’s always a silver lining. i intend to write at more length about lochte and abramovic (probably not in the same oiece, but who knows?), so if you’re bored of those subjects, be sure and avoid me (or the virtual me, anyway). i’ve repeatedly broken one of the cardinal rules of the internet this past week – don’t read the comments. but i’ve put my hand on that hot plate again and again recently, and boy has it been depressing.

anyway, heres some stuff:

rebekah raymond’s piece about marina abramovic in catalogue magazine.

steph harmon, also on abramovic in the guardian. in the article, harmon speaks to Yindjibarndi artist Katie West, whose profile, also in the guardian, is worth a read.

an article in mashable uk led me to those others, so thanks mashable.

found some delicious pottery…

and while hanging out with the lovely and talented phil magee, threw a pot at Flameworks, thanks christina for all your help. now i’ve conceived roughly 14 projects that involve making a lot of pots. so, there’s that.
