I’ve got my head in a weird and fun piece of work today, so please allow me to distract you with the unusual things kept in Brooklyn by our friends at the Invisible Gallery.


SUB-MACHINE GUN

SUB-MACHINE GUN is the simplest thing in the world.  A collection of screenshots of bad films with bad subtitles.

There’s something about the way interesting comics work, in them: the juxtaposition of image and text in discordant, dissociative ways.  Also they just make me smile.  But I love the strangeness of these little captures, and they way they make me think for a moment.  Also, it turns out your robot will live.


Bruce Sterling: Fantasy Prototypes And Real Disruption (Video)

Provided the embed works, this is a talk Bruce just gave in Berlin. Bruce’s talks are always good. He references Anab Jain’s talk, but I don’t think that’s up yet. Anab’s bit at Improving Reality last year was massive. People like Anab and Bruce do some of the best science-fictional thinking around, up on their feet at places like this.
