哈伦·法罗基,《平行I》,2012,双频道HD录像,彩色有声,时长16分钟.
artforum.com.cn/print/201707/1

「《平行 I》从对一个貌似细枝末节的问题的研究开始:在电脑游戏出现的前三十年里,对树的表现形式的变化。法罗基把这当作了一个艺术史的主题来处理,从而“引诱”我们开始真正地“观看”电脑游戏,而不是直接进入对其内容之暴力和残酷的批评。法罗基梳理出的历史中最早的树出现在《神秘屋》(Mystery House, 1980)中:一棵用锯齿状线条画出的巨型红杉。在这个游戏里,玩家需要通过打字输入指令在这个简单的环境里移动,而这棵孤零零的红杉其实无法“被游戏”,它仅仅是一个提示性的符号——冒险尚未开始:玩家仍然在房间“之外”。随着游戏的开发,对树的描绘也快速地进化了。从锯齿线到像素,它们先是获得了表面(surface),而后又拥有了体积(volume)。1990年代的时候,程序化纹理(procedural texture)——可以生成看起来拥有无尽细节的表象的碎形算法(fractal algorithms)——的开发制造出了诸如树叶之类的形态,而到了2010年代,照相写实主义的树已经开始可以在数字世界里的风的吹动下产生运动。」

Sad day, pla.social just stopped resolving in the afternoon. The server's been down for a while.

If your instance is old enough, you can see @pla. His account on peertube.social is still up, @pla ( https://peertube.social/accounts/pla ). He was a fun guy. Hit by a car while riding his bike around South Carolina.

It was surreal seeing a normal-looking boomer talking to anime-girl-avatars about ffmpeg and updating Pleroma and trying out Misskey. Here's a video of him eating a graham cracker.

2015 年,八十高龄的 Joan Didion 分享了一份私人书单。她首先列了海明威,是理所当然的。Didion 1978 年接受《巴黎评论》采访,说自己十五六岁时通过在打字机上逐字逐句输入海明威的小说来学习写句子,学习写作。诗歌的比重比较大也是自然,因为好的散文家对遣词造句的痴迷不亚于诗人。不过,以简洁的文风著称的 Didion 居然喜爱文风绮丽的 Henry James 和 James Baldwin,实在意外。
