Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. A self-conscious avatar, pair of floating lips, and President Obama walk into an art show…    What seems like the beginning to a potentially funny joke is actually half of the nearly mirthless exhibition at the Hirshhorn Museum. Eschewing humor as a staple of animation and postmodern critical tool, the show soberly promises to introduce the audience to six contemporary artists using computer animation to “challenge conceptions of reality” and...

Why do we need agents, the 00 section? Isn't it all rather quaint? Well, I suppose I see a different world than you do, and the truth is that what I see frightens me. I'm frightened because our enemies are no longer known to us. They do not exist on a map, they aren't nations. They are individuals. So before you declare us irrelevant, ask yourselves—? —M, Skyfall   The question: how safe do you feel? How safe do we feel in a world where technology has been absorbed? Where the impression...
