"The urban interventions are meant to represent displacement of peasants in his native Columbia due to war and violence, themes that resonate in one form or another in any country his work is displayed in. Crafted from tree branches, fiberglass, and fabric, the 2 foot ants are particularly striking when seen clustered aggressively on facades of buildings."

LRB · Sheila Heti · But I invested in you!: How to Be an Asshole

My favorite essay I’ve read about this book.

humansofnewyork:

"Before I entered seminary, I fell in love with God. A few months into seminary, I fell in love with philosophy. Two years into seminary, I fell in love with a girl."

I’m re-reading Pattern Recognition and I can’t help but think that the job of the “cool hunter” seems rather out dated these days. And if you look at the typical trend websites these days, it’s clear that they rarely find anything really new or big. It’s all small, weak signals. Have subcultures been replaced by memes? They basically take a day now: You have an idea in the shower. An hour later, you’ve setup the tumblr, created a dozen posts and opened the submit form. By noon, you’re on all the hype machines. By 4pm, you’ve been on Mashable and Huffington Post. At 6pm, you’ve given a couple of Skype/Hangout interviews. And by 10pm, your idea has metastasized into about a dozen submemes.

How are subcultures formed in 2014? (via photographsonthebrain)

The Anti-Environmentalist Culture of “Coal Rolling”
"Coal rolling" is a trend in which truck drivers alter their vehicles to produce unusually large amounts of sooty black exhaust, often through smoke stack-like exhaust pipes. The subculture reflects an anti-environmentalist attitude—proponents calling the smoke “Prius Repellant”—where coal and pollution is associated with manliness, identity, and a way of life seemingly endangered by the “liberal” agenda. As Elizabeth Kulze notes on Vocativ, “coal rollers” have expanded their community online through Facebook (16,000 collective followers), Tumblr, and Instagram (156,714 posts), among other forms of social media.
