"Is the image, a solid wall of greenbacks, beautiful? Warhol completely changed our idea of beauty, so, yes, it is. He was also one of the first modern artists to realize, or rather to say out loud, that money itself is beautiful, is art, which has helped create the reality that, aesthetically speaking, it is as often as not the price tag, not what it’s attached to, that generates value."

"But back in the early 1990s, when SoHo was still the epicenter of the international art scene and Paul H-O was a struggling sculptor turned carpenter, he and his Sony camcorder came to be known as gallery-opening fixtures."

"Emin’s subject matter, which conveys an overwhelming feeling of self-disgust and abandonment, is far from light-hearted."
"For serious fans of the medium it’s a tantalizing collection, though Mr. Kubert himself seems more amused than anything."
"Preservation concerns about “Spiral Jetty” have arisen lately not only because of the work’s re-emergence from the water but also because of plans announced in the last two and a half years by companies to initiate industrial projects near the site."
NY Times Kennedy
"Some critics dismissed their work as a repetitive series of stunts devoid of intellectual content. More often than not, however, the projects, once in place, turned out to be enormously popular."

"Where hard-line Abstract Expressionists shunned figural elements in their work, Mr. Kriesberg used them lavishly. As a result, he was often called a Figurative Expressionist..."

"In 1996, Dr. Pnueli received the A. M. Turing Award from the Association for Computing Machinery, an honor often called computer science’s equivalent of the Nobel Prize. The award citation said his 1977 paper 'triggered a fundamental paradigm shift in reasoning about the dynamic behavior of systems.'"

Something I listened to this week...
(1976) Utterly stupendous. Dark themes, mournful cover, serious social commentary and music that soars from beginning to end. A stone cold reggae classic. You need this album. At the least, go to iTunes and pay 99 cents for "Uptown Babies Don't Cry" and then try not to sing along. Impossible, I say.
