John Baldessari believes that every young artist should know 3 things:

  1. Talent is cheap
  2. You have to be possessed, which you can’t will
  3. Being at the right place at the right time

Tom Waits narrates a quirky 6-minute documentary about contemporary art legend John Baldessari

I will not make any more boring art. 

From photographer Navid Baraty:

Recently I had the opportunity to photograph Victoria and Richard MacKenzie-Childs’ home aboard the historic 1907 Yankee Ferry, afloat in the New York City Harbor. They’ve not only restored the Yankee and kept it afloat for posterity, but they also use the ship as a beautiful studio and show space for their work as decorative artists.

Created by The Goggles (Paul Shoebridge and Michael Simons) and produced by the National Film Board of Canada, this “interactive documentary,” as they call it, is pitch perfect.

Pine Point started off as a book but quickly morphed into something that could only exist online: a scrapbook (of sorts) that uses films, old photos, and audio recordings to tell the true story of a small Canadian town that simply disappeared one day. (via VSL)

Poignant, nostalgic, historical, entertaining and interactive in a completely intuitive way, could Pine Point be the future of the book? Best consumed when you’ve got 20+ minutes to spare.

This piece is stunning. Like it brought tears to my eyes stunning.
