2.2 million people are incarcerated

Prison Nation -
Aperture Magazine
#230, Spring 2018

Most prisons and jails across the United States do not allow prisoners to have access to cameras. At a moment when 2.2 million people are incarcerated in the US, 3.8 million people are on probation, and 870,000 former prisoners are on parole, how can images tell the story of mass incarceration when the imprisoned don’t have control over their own representation? Organized with the scholar Nicole R. Fleetwood, an expert on art’s relation to incarceration, the Spring 2018 issue of Aperture magazine addresses the unique role photography plays in creating a visual record of a national crisis. READ

forest bath

My First Forest Bath In Montreal

Today I enjoyed my very first forest bath in Montreal after feeling so sad and nature-deprived yesterday.

I'm not gonna lie, I cried as I rode my bike through the trail when I realized that for a few brief moments, the only thing I could hear were the birds singing in Parc Angrignon.

I thanked the trees for such a privilege and searched for a place just for me.

Midnight Shine - Heart of Gold (Cover)

Play It Loud: Guitar Gods

With objects dating from 1939 to 2017, the MET exhibition, together with its catalogue, will examine many ways in which rock and roll musicians used their instruments. The exhibition will highlight themes such as emerging technologies and how they were embraced by musicians, the phenomenon of the “Guitar Gods,” crafting a visual identity through the use of instruments, and even the destruction of instruments in some live performances.

The first major loan exhibition in an art museum dedicated entirely to the iconic instruments of rock and roll will go on view at The Metropolitan Museum of Art beginning April 8, 2019

Through more than 130 instruments that were used by such artists as Chuck Berry, The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, Jimmy Page, Steve Miller, St. Vincent, Metallica, The Rolling Stones, and many others, Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll will explore one of the most influential artistic movements of the 20th century and the objects that made the music possible. 

Drawn from 70 private and public collections in the United States and the United Kingdom, most of the objects in the exhibition have never been shown outside of their performance contexts.

Organized thematically, Play It Loud will include many of rock’s most celebrated instruments, including such guitars as Eric Clapton’s “Blackie,” Eddie Van Halen’s “Frankenstein,” and Jerry Garcia’s “Wolf,” as well as Keith Emerson’s Moog synthesizer and Hammond organ, and drums from Keith Moon’s “Pictures of Lily” drum set, to name a few. By displaying several rigs used in live performances and sound recordings, the exhibition will also demonstrate how artists created their own individual sounds. The instruments will be complemented by some 40 vintage posters, striking stage costumes, and epoch-making videos.

Shirkers | Official Trailer [HD] | Netflix

You see, Shirkers (2018) is a documentary about finding another film, also called Shirkers,
which she began making in 1989 with her friends and high school film
teacher while growing up in Singapore. It was a beautiful and ambitious
experiment in filmmaking; a cult classic that never was; because when
shooting wrapped, her mysterious film teacher, whom Sandi had
idolized, disappeared with all the footage, never to be heard from
