On This Lingering Cold Weather

frozen-lakes

Who knew that yesterday morning’s mention of Asian smog would align so well with last night’s light dusting of mid-April snow? If it’s cold here, then it is obviously even colder in the northern states, where sure enough half of the Great Lakes are still frozen over. While this is pretty cool for figure skaters, the prolonged ice melt will have a mixed effect on the lake economy and surrounding environment including delays in shipping and rising water levels. We’ll let The Atlantic explain all of this, though.

“Ducati” is Cory Arcangel’s new edition  for the ICA. The print was made on an old plotter machine using a software program devised to command motors to make a drawing of the racing bike. Even though it’s made by a robot, the print feels like it was hand drawn, with the only human touch actually being the color on the print, which is individually finished by Arcangel.

Ryan McGinley: Naked and Famous by Alice Gregory

In the beginning, Ryan McGinley was an outsider. He used his band of beautiful friends to create photographs—rarely not naked but never quite sexy—that he now calls “evidence of fun.” But in the past decade, McGinley’s vision has evolved and expanded into a tidal wave of influence, affecting the look of art, advertising, music videos, film, even Instagram—and making him arguably the most important photographer in America. So why are so many of us just learning his name?
