Once again, it is Friday, and once again, things are a little crazy today which makes it a little hard to carve out writing time. (Not to mention the vague writing-malaise of the week: it has been hard to come up with something to write about. From which I mainly glean that I need more shit going on in my life. Thanks, COVID!)
For now, here’s a little link roundup for the day.
- This art installation of a little house and gardens populated by dozens of figures doing an assortment of variously normal and ominous activities is called “The Cuckoo Clock,” and it is both fascinatingly detailed and quite creepy. I wonder very much what the artist was looking to convey.
- This gentleman took a Polaroid photo every day from 1979 right on up through the 90s, and the resulting vast collection of little moments are online for us to enjoy.
- FMV (full-motion video) adventures have been on the outs for a while, since their heyday back in the 90s – but Square is making one, and I have to admit I’m into it.
- Is the internet turning us all into cranks?
- An AI is drawing people’s dream jobs on Twitter, with surreal results. I wonder what it would make of mine? (Be sure to check out the original twitter, too!)
