Did it start with him sitting around the kitchen table with some mates and one of them highlighting the potential pun of The ‘Walled-off’ hotel, and so they laughed.. and he laughed.. and then he thought - you know what? We could actually make that happen.. And then, a while later, it had happened. Actually actually happened. As in - there is now a hotel that you can stay in, a real one.
Once again, money-where-his-mouth-is genius from Banksy.

So much is about lines, isn't it. So many good things. Drawing/making or maybe imagining lines: graphic design, cycling, snowboarding, skating, surfing, climbing, photography - even music I suppose. All have lines involved. And here, another great article at 99% invisible, lines through the landscape, trails through nature. Puts me in mind of Bruce Chatwin writing about 'Dreaming Tracks' in his book The Songlines. Never did finish that book. Perhaps time to revisit.

Brilliant looking show going on in Detroit this week. Love this. What a name, what a premise, what a range of artists, what a.. um.. stimulating body of work. Wonder what The Donald thinks of this!

In these unsettling times finding decent articles on the issues is going to be bloody helpful, isn't it. Here's a good start from 350.org.

Article here in The Guardian all about making and mending. Had a meeting with Ruth Potts a while back about getting her involved with Make Works Devon & Cornwall. They get a mention here. But perhaps more troubling / interesting is the derision with which with this sort of thinking gets from 'the public' – even the Guardian reading public. Pushing a rock up a hill, for sure..

Anxious to avoid the pictures becoming “ruin porn”, another photographic cliche (used particularly in relation to the beautiful images of post-industrial Detroit), Mendel was careful to display the objects in as dignified a way as possible. “There was such chaos in the place, I had this instinct to make things as organised and neat as I could.” He made several trips to dig around in the sandy wasteland, sifting through layers of rubbish, asking himself, “How would someone in 1,000 years understand what had happened here?” This activity was viewed with bemusement by the camp’s inhabitants, but without the antagonism that photography provoked.
Interesting article on Gideon Mendel and this body of work here.

Hey writers, artists, jammers, malcontents,
Post Truth, issue No. #129, is out there now . . . check it out . . . get fired up!
Next up we’re doing a fliperoony issue with ALT-RIGHT marching in triumphantly from the front . . . then you flip the magazine over and ALT-LEFT marches in, not quite so triumphantly, from the back . . . then with myriad epiphanies and provocations along the way, we engineer an almighty clash of political narratives in the middle.
Help us make this monumental geopolitical clash come alive!
Send us your thoughts on why hard-right populism is surging everywhere, while we on the left are getting beaten up . . . and your ideas on how we can zero in on the metamemes that count, shift the global mood back in our favor and win the future!
Send anecdotes, gripes, jibes, rants, manifestos, poetry, illustrations, photography – fresh new ways to think about the emerging world order.
Keep it intimate, visceral and real.
Send to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org before December 25.
And we’ll see you around the corner,
for the wild,
