An amazing artist and human. He was one of the most wonderful people I met.

Reports have come in this morning of November 25th, 2010, that Christopherson passed away quietly in his sleep at his home in Bangkok.

Peter Christopherson wrote, on July 31, 2010, in response to his interview in The Quietus:

Fig leaf underwear shields you from TSA nudie scans

There's been a lot about the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) full body scanners at U.S. airports in the news — the ones capable of seeing your private bits and pieces. Of course, for every problem there's a product: special "underwear" that protects you from the gaze of pervy TSA officers.

Every day from 29 August to 27 September, Mexican artist Damián Ortega has worked on a new artwork that responded directly to a news item, a photography, a cartoon or graphics he had found that day in the press. The sculptures and installations are now on show in The Curve, an exhibition space which as its name indicates, is shaped like a long, narrow arc. I can't think of any space more challenging to curate and fill in.

112110fb.jpg From the braggadocio files: NYPD are now regularly monitoring Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and YouTube to try to catch big-mouthed criminals who like to brag about their illegal activities. They caught Manhattan thief James Roberts that way; he boasted about his new bling on MySpace days after mugging a man at a Chelsea bus stop, and even put pictures up wearing the watch and ring he stole. Police called Facebook "instrumental" in busting up a ring of drug dealers who sold coke, ecstasy and dope at nightclubs like Rebel and the Roseland Ballroom last year, and gangs regularly have their own MySpace pages with easy-to-identify pictures.

Speakers for the home theater can get frighteningly expensive. The first time I saw speakers that sold for tens of thousands of dollars I figured there couldn’t be that much work put into the things. One of those crazy expensive sets of speakers was the Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus, which served as the inspiration for Alfonso de Rojas to build his own a few years back.
