Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures.

It’s one thing to take a #museumselfie with a work of art, as if to say, “yes, I was here with this artwork” or “yes, here is my reflection in the surface of this piece.” It’s another thing to make Greco-Roman statues look like they were chiseled specifically for selfie-shooting moments.

LOS ANGELES — It was 4:20pm when I walked into Depression and encountered Andrea Ursuta’s piece “Stoner” (2013). A batting-cage ball-throwing machine creaked on, spun once, and died before it could eject anything from its quarantined-off belly. It is located inside a larger batting cage. There is no entrance. There is no bat to play with. Stones are... [more]

For eons of time mass consciousness has been under the illusion that politics is the control center for world affairs, that presidents define the destinies of both countries and people and we the public are subject to its wavering discourse. We have been led to believe that media sets the trend for cultural standards of how we should feel and think and that the answer to true happiness lies in upholding the values embodied by the majority and the most popular in our circle of influence.
