      Entering San Francisco Antique & Design Mall is like stepping out of the wardrobe into a land full of haphazardly placed objects and wares, trinkets, tchotchkes, and worlds upon worlds of aged interiors, all of which manage to simultaneously disorient and excite the savvy adventurer. Located a little past Industrial Street and the just-built Lowe’s that is sure to threaten the extant home-building depots and emporiums en route, SFADM is (at best) unconsidered by devotees...

"The heavenly motions... are nothing but a continuous song for several voices, perceived not by the ear but by the intellect,a figured music which sets landmarksin the immeasurable flow of time."John Banville: Kepler, (Minerva 1990)   A freestanding wood and epoxy resin sculpture serves as a sentinel securing the space of the Silverman Gallery. This seven sided object, a key work in the Los Angeles-based artist Christopher Badger’s recent solo exhibition Rain Shadow Cross... [more]
      In 1989, in the small conservative journal, The National Interest, a former political analyst for the US State Department, Francis Fukuyama, published an article entitled, The End of History? His article was hailed by some as the perfect interpretation of current events at a time when the Cold War disintegrated, the Berlin Wall fell, and the USSR and other “socialist” governments abandoned previous forms of socialist and communist economies in hopes of...

      Empathy, he once had decided, must be limited to herbivores or anyhow ominvores who could depart from a meat diet. Because, ultimately, the empathic gift blurred the boundaries between hunter and victim, between the successful and the defeated.   Science fiction is an art of prophecy, a process of historicizing the present, a reflection of an ongoing present as past, and a refraction of future permutations. The imaginary, symbolic, and real become interwoven through a... [more]
This image is not my creation, nor is it the work of the astronomers who first registered it, Karl Glazebrook & Ivan Baldry. You see, the blanched chroma before you is a picture of the cosmos, the average color of the universe.  It was mixed on a Heideggerian palette: a celestial clearing, a void where being arose. The researchers sought to determine the age and composition of stars by charting emitted light in the largest sample of the universe yet analyzed—several billion light years of... [more]

    I didn’t see Exercises in Seeing, partially because I wasn’t there. In most cases, not having seen an exhibition should make writing its review rather difficult, if not utterly pointless (see: re+view). While what follows can only be a speculative reconstruction, perhaps conjecture is the only appropriate tool for reviewing an exhibition of contemporary art held completely in the dark. After all, no one saw the show. More than thirty primarily visual projects were shipped to San... [more]
