Hey guys, For your assignment, I need you to find a twitter fight The way you do that is: 1: Type something you are interested in, in twitter search. 2: Find a mad tweet about it that not necessarily makes sense to you, and trace it. Find who started it, and copy the link of the first tweet. if the first thing you saw is the start of some sort of fight, find its responses or related tweets. 3: Take screenshots YOU HAVE TO TAKE MULTIPLE SCREENSHOTS OF MULTIPLE TWEETS! Yang Yi and Ndivhuho, you DON'T have to translate tweets if the tweets you found are in a foreign language 4: Please add all your screenshots in this folder https://drive.google.com/drive/u/2/folders/1TzBbuYliXvNoeG4vthn37EskLQKZ2FWR and please add a word file with a link of the first tweet you found

Hey Xiangyu - I tried to send recording from last class but I couldn't because the file was too big.
This time I'm recording to cloud so should be able to just send a link to anyone who needs it

i feel like when i look at performance art from the 1990s now i just think about tik toks
there's also a book by wu hung about contemporary art and ruins - he focuses more on ruins in literature though (since he says in classical Chinese art there is never an image of ruins, only textual descriptions)
interesting that several of your artworks use food as medium
(Zhou chunya is one of the most expensive artists in the world fyi)
omg so interesting

Assignment: Come up with an assignment for your classmates. It should be easy to complete at minimum, and help in generating content or ideas for a final collective project. The assignment itself will be due before class on Wednesday 4/22.
Please insert links to, descriptions of, or images of artist publications (digital or analogue, individual or collective) that you find interesting here. The goal is to expand the set of possibilities that we have in mind as we settle on a collective publishing project.
Includes an open-source software for creating digital multimedia “publications”
Net Art Anthology (Rhizome)
100 net artworks from 1980s to present with critical writing about them
The White Pube
Hosts artist takeovers on a monthly basis - they are temporary so you have to catch them while they’re up (better known for their art reviews)
Web projects by Ryan Kuo
Especially the third edition which was a plastic folder with multiple sizes of artist project multiples
uncube magazine - architecture, design, products, materials
Digital + physical?
Problem of assignmenty texts
Do we really want to include these texts?
What do we want to put in it?
For example - what about asemic writing?
Different pieces could bleed together - physical overlays as well - cross-genre ways of compiling
Collaborative aspect - you couldn’t always separate voices / collective writing
Image and text were bleeding into each other
How to ensure that it feels formal, institutional? Something that you could share with people? Readability?
Catalogue / the show
Photos in it
Essays in it (optional)
Two options, for example
A show-in-itself in a digital format
A stepping-stone pre-catalogue that can accompany the fall show
“like thinking through a few themes which thread our practices currently together”
Things that we have been interested in pursuing further, but haven’t had a chance to do:
E.g. Zoe video works, Hana twitter project, Ndivhu - city/ruins research conversations (I missed some of the others)
Things we want to include;
E.g. a plugin, things you can play with
