Alt Lit: Frank Hilton explores the apocalypse
This week I want to start out with an excerpt from a new novel by the writer Frank Hilton. Her style strikes me as an expressionistic way of writing and her topic of sci-fi/ social networks/ post apocalypse fits in perfectly with the time period we are in right now. I am beginning to fall in love with futurists lately, their unflinching visions of what’s to become of society are interesting and hyperbolic but always insightful to the psyche of today. The artwork Dazed and Confused magazine chose to go along with the story is very striking as well.

Artful Excitement: A New Light Museum
From James Turrel to Olafur Elliasson the Centre for International Light Art Unna is a new museum dedicated to showing light art. I am an unapologetic fan of light art and phenomena works. You can either call it a proclivity for the sublime or just a childlike wonder for explosions and light.
