How do I read the columns?
WHERE ARE THE COLUMNS?
Over 50% of the population 14 to 49 is believed to have a HSV-1 (oral herpes) infection (http://wwwn.cdc.gov/nchs/nhanes/bibliography/results.aspx?catid=42&name=Herpes%20Simplex%20Virus%20Type%201%20%28HSV%201%29). To answer the authors comment about vaccinations, scientists are working on several different solutions to create a vaccine, the problem with your suggestions is that there is no virus that does not illicit symptoms. Accute (non symptomatic) infections are caused typically by two factors 1) viral load- infection of only a few viruses compared to thousands and/or 2) an individual persons immune system. They are trying to create an attentuated virus- a weaker less efficient virus, but this is still in the works.
It seems to me far too many viewers get caught up in the process that was used to make those works and reading wall texts instead of just spending time with the objects, thinking about those objects and the experience of viewing them. I disagree with Paddy whole-heartedly; I don't care about the technology. I know enough about that; it surrounds me daily. I want to experience something I don't know about. I want to be asked to think and feel.
Hmmm..cunnilingus counts as good sex...from a straight man's point of view. Thank god for Brazilian waxing.
Thank you for the sort of take-down this show needed in tandem with John Yau's piece. Love how the two of you stand in contention with Roberta and Jerry. The divide seems to reflect the state of criticism today. The Gray Lady and the art world's hip uncle incontinently chose feeling over reason in their assessments of the work, which you'd expect from the blogosphere-- not the New York establishment.
I actually would like Mr. Guyton's printer, they're quite exspensive and it's a shame that such a wonderful piece of technology is wasted on an artist so seemingly intent on re-hashing geometric abstraction. I think a merger of form and content could be so much more interesting and I agree that there are many artists doing much more interesting things with these tools and ideas than him.
Oh, so your mom doesn't like the show?
Excellent piece, especially this point: "...you can’t help but be struck by the lack of curiosity this artist has for the technology that helps produce so much of his work."
Weirdly, paired with that lack of curiosity toward technology is a desire to be so transparent about it (e.g., wall text citations of printer models and lively descriptions of Guyton's rassling with them) that the works become entirely about process rather than product. (Another, perhaps less-chided cliché.) To me, the prints represent the latest and most blatant of what Michael Fried called "theatricality"--not only is a consideration of our spectatorship required to make the objects worth looking at (a tail-eating snake), but too much of their achievement further hinges on our visualizing Guyton, jamming his printer to achieve the desired effect. It's a practice closer to poor (if implied) performance art than good painting.
The MOMA has done the right thing. After NEOLUDICA ART IS A GAME at Biennale Venice 2011 it was recognized that the world is a video game, a total bet on our future, in which video game as a medium, knowingly sprung from its own fiction, may finally get out of the mirror, like Alice, in order to express its thought on a society that has never been so stratified and complex. The two realities – which sum up to form one augmented reality – are very much alike and cannot do without one another. Artists, creators, developers and players are then called upon to step up in class, andto accept a confrontation that will be aesthetic as well as ethic, and therefore will bring upmore daydreams.Today more than ever we are moved by Lewis Mumford’s words from his 1934 essayTechnics and Civilization: “Thanks to machines, we now have a chance to understand a worldwe contributed to create.”
In Italy the videogame is art and is exhibited in museums:

Believe you will love it.
Whatever your opinion of sarcasm is I think there is a significant insight to take from this article. Fine artist's can end up letting their conceptual choices be dictated by their incidental design ones. Glass is a material with some inherent aesthetic appeal, and it can be easy for a lazy artist to lean on that appeal to make their work look sexier while not necessarily making it better.
It reminds me of a fellow student from my thesis class a few years ago. She made a piece by destroying a bunch of her sketchbook pages, making little samples of homemade paper out of them, and then pinning the samples to the wall in a grid formation. It struck me at the time that the piece's visual impact was really coming from the paper's rough quality and their arrangement into a grid. In terms of design both of these things are very nearly non-decisions on the artist's behalf. A grid has its own visual appeal while essentially eliminating a swath of compositional choices, while the paper's rough quality is attainable without any significant skill.
These decisions didn't detract from the piece, but they were doing a lot of heavy lifting considering how easily they were arrived at.

There are so many artists doing amazing work with glass that has nothing to do with panes of window glass..... Please widen your search...really? Window glass?
And...? Mr. Brand is charmed with himself, but what else is there to take from this? Sarcasm is not insight. It is, however, tedious. What a waste of a read.
So this is where people get this stupid idea from. Let me tell you that I am sick of people not flushing their toilets, everytime I walk in I am greeted with the horrible smell of urine or feces. I'd rather "waste water" than contract some disease from this unsanitary practice. You tree-hugging hippies should be ashamed for proposing insane "tips" that ironically harms the environment and human beings more than it helps. All you do is whine about non-existant problems and create drama for yourselves, please stop dictating how we should live our lives.
Day Shift, Saleem is right. Without sunlight you get depressed and go stir crazy. Plus it means never having dinner with friends.. ever!
