1) When Writers Attack: https://lithub.com/fighting-norman-mailer/
In honor of UFC 242, which took place last night, found this article poignant. Writers and artists´obsessions with fighting. Also, insecurity as a writer, when considering who might attack me because of my blog (as if they would care enough)?
2) Kaja Silverman´s, The Acoustic MIrror: The Female Voice in Psychoanalysis and Cinema http://www.iupress.indiana.edu/product_info.php?cPath=1037_3025_3070&products_id=181222
"...classic cinema designates less a formal system ... than a textual model which holds the female voice and body insistently to the interior of the diegesis, while relegating the male subject to a position of apparent discursive exteriority by identifying him with mastering speech, vision, or hearing."
3) Bunko Gakki by Maywa Denki https://ars.electronica.art/outofthebox/en/bunkogakki/
One of my favorite pieces at this year´s ars electronica were these small instruments, that were in the shape of small books, and which looked like books when placed on a bookshelf. Found in the Device Art section, I was charmed by the call to fun by these Japanese artists.
4) Ai Wada and Electronicos Fantasticos! https://eiwada.com/projects
Another hit for me at the Ars Electronica Festival was the band Electronicos Fantasticos! who turn vintage appliances into musical instruments all the while playing hip techno-y midi-style music. Impressed again by the Japanese call to fun. (Into the electromagnetic punk). I want to write simple melodies and 8-bit like music. Leave us alone, high art!
