Very interesting article HERE. Although the “digital revolution” has been bemoaned by the music industry and photography so often that I don’t think people any hear it anymore.
But I think this is a different way of addressing the issue:
1) Using an example that is truly legendary
2) This quote:
But in truth, we do ask: Every time we go to a library or shop, we want it to be full of new books, and when we search various channels (legal and illegal) for new music and movies, we expect to find them. Someone has to produce this content – this art – and sadly, the shoemakers’ elves are all busy stitching elsewhere. And after it’s been produced, someone has to buy it. Or not buy it, as is more likely the case.
It comes down to a question of value: Do we value artists’ effort?

Back in August, I had the honor of photographing U.S. Marine Cpl. William Gadsby for Smithsonian Magazine. Gadsby suggested Ball’s Bluff Battlefield Regional Park, near Leesburg, Virginia, where he could actively show how his prosthetic (designed by Hugh Herr) allowed the freedom to hike and be active in different rough terrains.
Gadsby was wonderful to work with – gracious and happy to hit up different locations – as well as engaging and thoughtful: we talked about surfing, wartime history, philosophy, governmental use of statistics, organic foods, cultural differences between US and Europe, and – of course – lots of physiology, bio-engineering, and prosthodontics. He’s really pushing to make a difference in people’s lives, and spending time with him was an inspiring.

I can’t help but think that this had to be influenced by Stephen Wilkes’ fine art project Day to Night

Its as if South Park got together with Quentin Tarantino and a historian.

Straight up summer-camp nighttime campfire chills. Great stuff.

Words and numbers are just symbols. Graphics are symbols. There are times that using the right kind of symbol gets the same message across in a much more understandable way. This is a great example.
15,000 feet or, or THIS
I’m sure it is more complicated, with topography, currents, and all manner of variables. But as far as really translating a piece of the problem faced, this is staggering.

I can’t even pretend to know what this is about or what it means, but man is it beautiful.
