In Saltz’s case, he goes on to liken the couple to Jeff Koons and Marina Abramovic for their veiled attempts at sincerity—which is fine, but by continuing to generate a list of people to compare the Wests to, he fails to examine the questions that might tell us why art critics have to talk about celebrities’ artiness in the first place. — Kanye West’s “Bound 2″: Blame It on the Collector Class

NED RIFLE by Hal Hartley — Kickstarter
Hal Hartley is crowd funding his newest film, and he is about 2/3 there with a week to go. Help make this film — and get some good rewards in return.
I especially like the $10 which gives you any two downloads from his website, including several of his movies. Which if you want to download them would normally be $19,99 a piece! So you’re saving big and helping making this film!
I just regret you cannot pick two rewards, or pick the $10 one twice, for that matter. There are autographed screenplays and unique books and more. Let’s help Hal make this movie!
The Black Book by Jean Keller (Paperback) - Lulu
Ink used for digital printing is one of the most precious substances in the world. A single gallon of ink costs over four thousand dollars and this is one reason why digitally printed books are so expensive. However, the price of a book is not calculated according to the amount of ink used in its production. For example, a Lulu book of blank pages costs an artist as much to produce as a book filled with text or large photographs. Furthermore, as the number of pages increases, the price of each page decreases. A book containing the maximum number of pages printed entirely in black ink therefore results in the lowest cost and maximum value for the artist. Combining these two features, buyers of The Black Book can do so with the guarantee that they are getting the best possible value for their money.
I like this a lot; minimal form with maximum conceptual effect.

This is the most unfortunate way you could photograph the Night Watch.
This is not a very technically perfect photo. The flash is glaring, the composition distorts and crops and skews the subject.
This Rembrandt is shot like it’s leaving a nightclub, caught in the glare of a flash. A desecration of the canonical image.
You know how the Night Watch looks; it’s famous and available in intricate detail and very high resolution online.
This is not a photograph of the Nightwatch…
The edition contains the original full resolution 3106 x 2070 pixel image and photoshop file by Astrid Hermes and a PDF with the images, background information and related images. The original high resolution image of the Nightwatch by Rembrandt from the Rijksmuseum is included in this edition for reference. Buy at The File Arts for $20,-
