Images from Sharon Lockhart's installation Anna Schwinger: Installation of Artifacts from Repolust Cave, Archaeology Museum, Schloss Eggenberg, Graz 2011 (2011). Can't find much about this work online, but it appears to be a continuation of the choreography of work and gesture in Lockhart's excellent Double Tide (2009), projected horizontally onto a table. Also just noticed, and worth reading: a 2009 conversation between Lockhart and James Benning, mostly about the Lunch Break project.

I've been finding Blogger's incremental changes to formatting and its new interface exasperating, which depletes inspiration for putting things up here. So, some recent-ish articles of interest that I've been meaning to excerpt or link to: Jean Epstein: Critical Essays and New Translations [full pdf]; Chantal Akerman: The Pajama Interview; A Morals of Perception;  What is the Rational Response? (h/t Patrick Keiller); AntigoneLONDON; Mysterious Object from Thailand; The Exigencies of Mystery; The After-Image & Forest Roadsan interview with Ben Rivers; The Politics of Getting a Life; US 80s-90sAgainst Community; Owen Hatherley talks about his new book, which I enjoyedSicinski on TDKR; and, last and not least, R.I.P. Stephen Dwoskin & Chris Marker.
