1. Monday Jams:

    Contact! by Brigitte Bardot (written by Serge Gainsbourg). I have no idea what is happening in this video but I love it.

Kitsch Encyclopedia is a book project that brings together writings by Milan Kundera, Roland Barthes and Jean Baudrillard, as well as my own writing to formulate a relationship of kitsch to images. Kundera considers kitsch to be a categorizing phenomenon: a means through which complex human experience is distilled to simple, sentimental motifs. All three writers discuss a similar circumstance of the contemporary image world: the way that our culture of images, especially in the age of the internet, provides an Idealized, kitsch-based image world that exists on top of the real world and in many ways has subsumed it. – Sara Cwynar

    I’ve been a fan of Brooklyn-based Slice Magazine ever since  the idea was floating around the brilliant minds of Maria Gagliano & Celia Johnson (also know as my friends + zombie editor). Twelve issues later, the magazine has had tremendous success, increasing in circulation and award-winning writers, while also connecting many first-time authors with agents and books deals, bridging the gap between emerging and established authors by offering a space where both are published side-by-side.

    I was very happy to be the illustrator for their newest project, In The Telling. This latest installment from Slice is a weekly literary podcast hosted by Tim Mucci and read by various authors. It’s pretty excellent, have a listen!
