AMI — May 2020 Newsletter

  • Japanese photographer Fumi Ishino uses surveillance cameras to explore his homeland remotely. (!!) “This is a way to see what’s going on in my country, because reading the news is just not enough,” he says. “You have to see it for yourself.” Ishino estimates he clicks through 1,200 videos each day, returning at different times to see the subtle changes. (via California Sunday)
  • Samanta Schweblin’s latest fiction novel, “Little Eyes.” It’s about “robotic stuffed animals controlled remotely by humans,” and the New York Times describes the work as Schweblin’s answer to “talking about technological without getting caught up in technical terms.” (I’m in!) Read an excerpt, or buy the book at your local community bookstore. Reading club, anyone?
  • Interdependence, a new podcast from musicians Holly Herndon and Mat Dryhurst. The logo is eye-catching, the premise is very compelling..and I need a few more episodes before I cast my vote. If you’re a fan, tell me why.
  • Radio Garden, a global, live radio station. This sound experiment allegedly went viral in 2016, but it missed my corner of the internet, which is why I’m recommending it now. “Exceptionally vivid, it’s like looking through a keyhole,” writes Rosa Lyster. It’s the closest I’ve come to defying quarantine lock-down. (thank you, Winnie Street)
