is an online arts journal. It consists of web-based projects and essays by artists. An example from the current issue, Master of None
, where the author posits that a new model of work for artists can exist, one where the artist retains agency while also getting paid to do complementary work which is informed by the subtlety, strangeness, and sure-footed temperament of the artist’s persona. Two years of journals in the archives
Articles from the archives include:
Reframing Mirrors and Windows
, where the author explores Mirrors and Windows
, opened at The Museum of Modern Art, New York in July of 1978. It was legendary curator John Szarkowski’s exhibition of American photography in the 1960s and 70s. We begin to understand how the institutional frame of the window evolved and how it might have affected the development of the form of the photograph. It is the hand as well as the eye, the self as well as the other — that distinguishes a mirror artist from a window artist.

A distinct class of Web sites has emerged within the past 5 years to package and quantify artists, works of art, and even art mediums into statistics. Researchers take typically insider information — who is the most important artist in the world or whether contemporary or Dutch 18th-century painting is the wiser investment — and crunch the data through internal databases to translate their results into public information.
