Abstract Browsing 17 03 05 (Google) (2017) is a machine woven tapestry depicting an abstract version of the Google browser’s interface. To produce his Abstract Browsing series, Rafaël Rozendaal created a plug-in for Google’s Chrome Browser. Available to anyone online, it reduces images and text on any website visited to colored rectangles. The artist surfs the web every day using his plug-in and compiles thousands of screenshots, which he then narrows down to a small selection to be produced as tapestries.

Neon Google Doodle, Headquarters Lobby, NYC

Jamie and I were walking down Ninth Avenue towards 14th Street to catch the bus after having a fun time at the opening party for Chris Stein’s new exhibit of Debbie Harry Photos, which was held at the fabulous Dream Hotel on West 16th Street, when we passed  by the headquarters of the Google. I was, of course, immediately attracted by their huge Neon Google Doodle sign on the wall of the building’s lobby, which I was able to shoot through the locked revolving doors with a little adjustment of the camera lens. Very Nice.

Hilariously, just a few feet down the road, we saw the neon sign pictured below, which I discovered (via Google – Ha!) is by Lower East Side icon Clayton Patterson. Apparently, “Elgoog” is a thing, but I don’t feel like going into that right now.

Video Clip of The Week: “Gun Shy” By Weed

See Video at This Link Because it won’t embed on my site! Aargh!

Here’s another example of a band successfully going back in time in order to appear forward thinking, as Canadian noise rockers Weed make use of VHS Cassette-quality technology for the visually disquieting clip accompanying a decidedly brilliant post-apocalyptic tune they call “Gun Shy.” While this is possibly the most deliberately lo-fi recording I’ve heard in years that did not involve Guided By Voices, I find what Pitchfork described as the “familiar yet wonderfully warped sound of a mix tape that had been decaying in the glove compartment of an abandoned car since 1991” to be an odd combination of exhilarating and comforting. I believe the aesthetic is what we used to affectionately refer to as “Punk Rock” before that phrase ceased to have any meaning in a modern context. Also, the singer’s vocals remind me of Wire Train (Google them).

Although Weed have been around for a decade, this track comes off of what is, surprisingly, the band’s debut album, Deserve. Find out more about the World of Weed by visiting their awesome website and blogThis Link. Enjoy!
