Observations on film art : Lie to me: MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE

"Suppose your story situation is this. Character A is telling a story, but it’s a lie. Character B realizes it’s a lie, but doesn’t signal that recognition. This is really two problems in one: How do you tell the audience A is lying? And how do you convey that B knows but doesn’t reveal that knowledge?"

Terrible National Park Reviews Illustrated | Amusing Planet

'The wonderful thing about online reviews is that you will find both five-star and one-star reviews for the exact same product, and this includes America’s most pristine and majestic natural wonders—the National Parks. Most of the bad reviews stem from people complaining about petty stuff. Some didn’t like the watery coffee at the visitor center. Others couldn’t find a parking spot. For others, the day was too hot or too cloudy. When designer Amber Share read these one-star reviews, she decided to “put a positive, fun spin on such a negative mindset” by creating a set of travel posters for the National Parks highlighting the bad reviews.'

Exercise regularly, esp walking (if you can). Put things away and clean up as you cook. Find your people and ignore the rest. Turn off notifications ffs. Turn privacy settings all the way up. Cultivate empathy.

The Malware Museum

"The Malware Museum is a collection of malware programs, usually viruses, that were distributed in the 1980s and 1990s on home computers. Once they infected a system, they would sometimes show animation or messages that you had been infected. Through the use of emulations, and additionally removing any destructive routines within the viruses, this collection allows you to experience virus infection of decades ago with safety."

How do you take a walk with someone on the internet?

"In May and June 2021, artist g chiarion exchanged online walks through different countries; her guides were individuals forced from those countries by conflict. Born out of the COVID pandemic, and our collective isolation, these sessions were themselves conducted remotely. Despite this double distance, or perhaps because of it, the walks are intimate portraits of the places we call home. The resulting work has been captured as four folder poems, or verbal maps."
