Letter from Campbell Soup Product Manager to Andy Warhol (1964)

Letter from Campbell Soup Product Manager to Andy Warhol (1964): "In light of Andy Baio's settlement with Jay Maisel, this 1964 letter from the Campbell Soup product manager to Andy Warhol serves as the ideal way to respond to transformative works:


Campbell SOUP Company


May 19, 1964

Mr. A. Warhol

1342 Lexington Avenue

New York, New York

Dear Mr. Warhol:

I have followed your career for some time. Your work has evoked a great deal of interest here at Campbell Soup Company for obvious reasons.

At one time I had hoped to be able to acquire one of your Campbell Soup label paintings - but I'm afraid you have gotten much too expensive for me.

I did want to tell you, however, that we admired your work and I have since learned that you like Tomato Soup. I am taking the liberty of having a couple of cases of our Tomato Soup delivered to you at this address.

We wish you continued success and good fortune.


(Signed, 'William P. MacFarland')

[-empyre-] Call for e-action | Venice Biennale: "

Ricardo Dominguez wrote on -empyre-: In order to maximize impact and attempt to gain visibility for nameless, anonymous, stateless, non-represented global citizens at the Venice Biennale, we have decided to conduct a virtual sit-in to augment our flash-mob to be conducted on June 4 2011.






4 2011

This will essentially overload the Venice Biennale’s website with traffic and is completely legal, and will serve to underscore the importance of our cause in a more direct and obvious way. Please find attached another zip file containing project manifesto, images, and texts in Italian and Spanish. Also help spread the word and feel free to pass this email around to relevant eyes!

For those participating in the actual flash-mob action in Venice in the coming days please stay in touch and we support all your actions (there are many of us!!!)

In solidarity,

Play Time Fingerboard Park Installation, 2011

East Wind, 2011 video (still)

Shadow Life, 2011 video (still)

With Shadow Life, a work composed of three distinct narrative sequences Cao Fei invokes the days of childhood. The narrative draws upon the remembrance of a Chinese Spring Festival Gala celebration that ran on China’s official Central Television...In East Wind, the charmingly naive smile of Thomas, the British cartoon train engine, is superimposed on the front of a Chinese-manufactured Dong Feng truck (literally “East Wind” truck), which barrels across urban highways and overpasses with a single mission: to deliver refuse from a construction site in the city to a trash dump on its outskirts. The title of this work has clear historical overtones centring on Mao Zedong’s famous declaration that the east wind prevails over [the] west wind. This statement is associated with Mao’s so-called Third Front strategy, which sought to protect China from invasion by foreign powers by building industrial installations in western China. China’s “East Wind” (Dong Feng) automobile was founded in 1969 as a part of this campaign. But today, as this Western face is married to the Dong Feng truck, the power relationship between the two take on an indeterminate quality, just like the plight and pattern we see in the real world...

With a reconstituted urban model, Cao Fei’s installation work, Play Time perpetuates the open space created in RMB City, which offers a mode and mentality for more people to enjoy and participate in. In this fingerboard skate park sculpture, the buildings that Cao Fei uses as references come from all over the world. They are all charged with authoritarian and mystical connotations and take the form of some sort of belief. In this rapidly modernizing world, there are fewer and fewer buildings representative of ancient civilizations. Nonetheless, their core spirit never disappeared and therefore they still need to be dissolved. By simply sliding one’s fingers over the skateboard and travelling across the inclined surfaces and domes of these buildings, viewers may just be able to reach that objective. - Lombard Freid Projects"


Jeff Koons Must Die! (by Hunter Jonakin)

Jeff Koons Must Die! (by Hunter Jonakin): "
This is one of the funniest pieces I've seen in a long while!

'Jeff Koons Must Die!!! is made up of a fabricated 80’s style stand-up arcade cabinet, and a simulated digital environment presented in a first-person perspective. Viewers must pay twenty-five cents to play the game and the virtual environment is traversed with a joystick and two arcade buttons. The premise of the video game is to allow the viewer to virtually destroy work by the artist, Jeff Koons.'

Tiananmen Square Augmented Reality: Smartphone App Revives Statue of Democracy + Tank Man at Tiananman Square by 4 Gentlemen via Exile Diary:

Although it has been more than twenty years since Tiananman Protest took place in 1989, the authority persistently uses all means erasing the facts that Chinese people pursued democracy in this democratic and anti-corruption movement. In China, nowadays, young people are not aware the courageous actions, such as ‘Tank Man’ and erecting ‘Statue of Democracy’ facing Mao’s portrait on Tiananman Tower, emerged during student movement of 1989. Nonetheless, history should not be forgotten.

Information and communication technologies have inspired people to express their thoughts freely. We as artists, taking advantages of the development of mobile phone technology and smartphone applications, have revived the history of 1989 Tiananman Protest that has tremendous implications waiting for further examinations by our contemporaries.

Deploying Augmented Reality application, Layar (free download at http://layar.com) for Android and iPhone, we have created virtual ‘Statue of Democracy’ and ‘Tank Man,’ and installed those monumental icons on the physical sites where the real incidents took place. Any visitor, domestic or from abroad, can find those virtual monuments on Tiananmen Square and nearby East Chang’an Street with an iPhone or Android mobile device, as well as taking picture with them.

The images above indicate the real incidents, making process of Statue of Democracy & Tank Man (F1 & F3), the Augmented Reality on mobile devices (F2 & F4), and the exact locations of the AR work on Google map (F5).

Audience Experience:

Once the audience downloads the Layar Augmented Reality Browser to their Android or iPhone, he or she could stand in Tiananmen Square and point their device’s camera towards the northern side of the plaza where the Goddess of Democracy was originally erected. The application uses geolocation software to superimpose a computer generated 3D graphic of the Goddess of Democracy at the precise GPS coordinates of the original, enabling them to see the augmentation integrated into the physical location as if it existed in the real world. Similarly, the Tank Man augmentation would be placed on Chang’an Avenue northeast of Tiananmen Square in the exact location of the original event. Both augmentations will appear in the original scale and orientation.

Technical Requirements:

1. Hardware: iPhone or Android Phone

2. Software: Layar, free download at http://layar.com

On February 4, 4 Gentlemen placed a Goddess of Democracy augmentation in Al Tahrir Square in response to the uprising in Cairo.



Sangue do Meu Sangue

Blood Wars é uma instalação de arte-ciência onde as células brancas do sangue de duas pessoas diferentes são colocadas umas contra as outras em um "torneio" que pretende ver qual dos dois participantes tem o sistema imunológico mais forte. Apesar do conceito e tecnologia diferentes, remete vagamente ao trabalho Gaza Strip, que Wagner Garcia apresentou em Emoção Art.ficial 2.0 - Divergências Tecnológicas.
