Nigerians in Space

ephemera from Deji Olukotun, author of the novel from Unnamed Press
While searching for an artist from the Armory Show, I came across this cool sculpture by Patricia Piccinini. It is called Skywhale.

From concept development Patricia Piccinini’s sculpture took over seven months to create. Standing 24 meters high and 36 meters long, Skywhale is twice as big as a standard hot-air balloon and weighs half a tonne. It was cut and sewn together by a team of six people who used 3.3 million stitches.

Watching television today, with the exception of sports, is sort of being like spoon-fed baby food. Here comes the airplane and the spoon is moving towards your mouth and mashing peas all over your face, when what you really wanted was an apple. Before we were babies, now we’re all grown up and with streaming we choose what we want.
