“One of those two Zippo lighters was in Franklin D. Roosevelt’s pocket when he was assassinated. And one wasn’t. One has historicity, a hell of a lot of it. As much as any object ever had. And one has nothing. Can you feel it? … You can’t. You can’t tell which is which. There’s no ‘mystical plasmic presence,’ no ‘aura’ around it.” —Philip K. Dick, The Man in the High Castle
“Although he is now a god, he is still the same lovable young man we’ve always known. I can attest to that.

Any questions?” —Macro, in the BBC’s I, Claudius

I’m publishing this work as an example for my application for the Tate IK Prize 2015. My project—Tate Britain Unbound—would digitize and publish as many modern-era, public domain sculptures in Tate Britain’s collection as the project’s budget allows, along the lines of my Through A Scanner, Skulpturhalle project. This Eric Gill capture is a demonstration both of what’s feasible, and of my sincere interest in increasing access to Tate Britain’s collection.

“[T]he mere knowledge that such a work could be created and still exists in the world makes me feel twice the person I was … If I can get hold of a good cast of this Medusa, I shall bring it back with me…”—Goethe, Italian Journey
Life is a bitch and Death is her sister,
Sleep is their cousin, what a fuckin’ family picture.
