Against the Attention Economy: Short Stories Are Not Quick Literary Fixes | Literary Hub
"Book reviews attempt to make manifest the virtues of a piece of art in such a way that it can be accessed by as broad or narrow an audience as exists for that art. Literary criticism seeks to delineate and contextualize the interior life of a work of literature such that we are able to grasp and interrogate its deeper concerns."

Lady Chatterley’s Tinderbot - Libby Heaney
'The installation features around 800 anonymized Tinder conversations of both men and women, where Bernie.ai, "your personal matchmaker A.I. who understands your "type", and finds them on your favorite dating networks" has conversed with members of the public using dialogue from Lady Chatterley's Lover following its own sentiment analysis algorithm.'

Catapult | Why You Left Social Media: A Guesswork | Sofia Samatar
"What I don’t know (a sample): ... The difference between a word cloud and a field of non-paradigmatic intensities. The precise amount of money a given Facebook executive will make from a photograph of someone’s baby. The precise amount of money social media executives, as a group, and tech industry leaders, and advertisers, have made from my impulses, organizing, sadness, and fears, and what they have done with it."

When a Painter Enacts a Ritual
"There is nothing ironic or fashionable about Hall’s paintings. Mounted on a wall in a gallery, they establish a bond between looking at repeated marks and making them. This bond – which can be seen as a kind of public ritual that is rare in contemporary art – sets Hall’s work apart from those of her contemporaries. Lately, I have been thinking a lot about artists who neither fit in nor have a shtick. What drives these artists is the work, their belief in it and wherever it takes them. Hall is part of that group." I want to be part of that group
