Richard Long

Hey there,
I'm just going to get right into this. Richard Long is a geographical sculptor, which is to say his sculptures are inspired by geography and affect it. He's been working since the mid 60's, and his website shows and tells of his love for exploration and sensitivity to an individual's interaction with his environment. Many of his sculptures represent (or, are) paths created by walking over and over in the same area, and many others are simply visual representations of travel, energy, and geography.
This is an instillation done for the Sao Paulo Biennial, called White River Line. While some of his works represent naturally occurring landforms, others deal more with different ways of visualizing distances traveled. Via:
"A line the same length as a straight walk from the bottom to the top of Silbury Hill." Mostly I just think his work is very clever and unlike what any other artist I have seen. So, look at his stuff. I cant write anymore tonight. We are shitty.

PURE X (you may know them, previously, as Pure Ecstasy) is sitting in the kitchenette of a friend's with a friend (not necessarily that friend (although that is acceptable)) feeling warm feeling content and everything is still going on around you but you are separate and removed and can just "chill" and look back and understand and feel akin to lying with your head in between two pillows feeling "not fucked".

there's a chance that i wrote about these guys before but it has been so long since we've posted and i didn't want to lose motivation. they don't have any official albums or anything (just 7"s i think) and are really easy to just hype machine or something.

PURO INSTINCT is karen smith of the plastics of mean girls. she is very polished to a degree of plasticity yet despite this sheen not bad. It is off putting at first giving false impressions but when you delve a little deeper and get to know her you find that even she is actually very nice and has a "good personality" with well meaning intentions and ideas and you wouldn't expect it but there is creativity in her and a creation of something unique.

we still suck

Well this is the first week of AP testing and I'm currently enrolled in 5 AP classes, so I have been busy. I'd do a proper post but I am in need of sleep. So here are some things I'm sending to the AP graders. I hope they like them (and you too.)
Named "BraveNewShit.jpg" in my AP folder (also maybe a good official title.) If you couldn't tell this didn't take much time, but it is actually a pretty serious submission.
