Horses Think Blog Officially Closed & Archive

May 21, 2013

I’m not sure who is still out there reading blogs or reading this blog in particular. You must have noticed the trickle of posts over the past year or so. I unfortunately must admit that this blog’s time has come to an end. I no longer have the time or energy to keep it going as it once was.

The plan as of now is to archive this site permanently. I intend to put the archive up on the horsesthinkpress.com website in the near future. Horses Think Press will indeed continue and there will be a news page over there as well in addition to the archived blog site.

Meanwhile, I plan to start something from scratch over here on horsesthink.com. I have grown attached to this web url and have decided to use it for other things.

Thanks to everyone who tuned in to read my rants and recommendations over the past few years, it has been a fantastic learning experience.

Stay tuned here and at horsesthinkpress.com for updates, projects and new work.

Gregory Crewdson – Brief Encounters

September 26, 2012

Screening at Film Forum from October 31 – November 13, 2012.

The original and amazing David Lean directed film Brief Encounter will also be screening at Film Forum a couple of weeks before.

This photograph from Crewdson’s Beneath the Roses series has that original film listed on a theater marquee.

The Ascendancy of Ink-Jet Printing

September 4, 2012

Wolfgang Tillmans, Headlight (a), 2012

The September 2012 issue of ArtForum is out and looks almost like the September issue of Vogue magazine in it’s thickness and ad content. Inside there is an interesting conversation between Michelle Kuo and Wolfgang Tillmans called Step into Liquid: The Ascendancy of Ink-Jet Printing.

Unfortunately, you can’t read it online, as it’s only available in print.

A quote from Tillmans:

“We have arrived at a point where a large proportion of “painting” is actually ink-jet printing. This is an amazing fact. But, almost as astonishingly, it is never really talked about. A photographic ink-jet print on paper, an iPad drawing printed on ink-jet paper, and an original design printed on ink-jet paper are all technically exactly the same. Perhaps it’s time to rethink the remarkably persistent categorization of artworks. In my view, we are all making pictures.”

Marten Lange – Lab

August 22, 2012

If you aren’t already, I would highly suggest following Mårten Lange’s Lab website where he is posting images and text in preparation for his upcoming book to be published by Mack.

The whole thing feels sort of cryptic but the exacting and distilled images are quite mesmerizing so far.

Lange was also the young maverick behind Farewell Books, an exciting publishing project that is unfortunately now over.

Visitor – Billboard

April 10, 2012

If you are in the Philadelphia area during the next few weeks, a billboard has been installed in connection with my participation in Of The Ordinary at PPAC.

The billboard is located at the intersection of Oxford Street and 2nd Street through the end of the month. Please drive by and take a look if you have a chance.

Jeff Koon's Train

March 27, 2012


A design rendering of Jeff Koons’ Train at the High Line. Image by James Corner Field Operations, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and Jeff Koons.

This is amazing and mad.

I can’t believe Jeff Koons’ Train might perpetually hover above The High Line, hoisted up into the air by a tall, forever-constructing crane.

It’s almost a stand-in, as though Godzilla or King Kong had come back to play in the big city. And yet it is simultaneously majestic, light, heavy and awe inspiring.

The chosen site will become a photographic magnet and trap as evidenced by the above rendering.

Something to look forward to.
