marchland – the seldoms

Just saw it at the MCA Chicago. A lot of creative talent went into this thing, a fashion designer, an architect, musician and composer, and of course a choreographer, but at least for me, the sum may not have been greater than the parts in this piece. I was distinctly aware of all these different elements and found myself examining them separately instead of a cohesive whole. This is my first experience with the Seldoms, so I’m curious to see some more of their work. I’m also really curious to see what you thought of marchland, so let me know.

“It is better to make a piece of music than to perform one, better to perform one than to listen to one, better to listen to one than to misuse it as a means of distraction, entertainment, or acquisition of ‘culture.'”

— John Cage

Do you like old maps? NYPL has an excellent digital archive of old maps of New York City. While you are there, be sure to check out the previously mentioned amazing photographs of 1930’s New York City.

Did you know you can take a look behind the scenes of the NYPL digital archive? Just like google, they have a lab where they research and develop new projects and features.

Finally, if you are a real map aficionado check out the always interesting Strange Maps blog. I highly recommend it.
