The future of Mein Kampf in a meme world

While his­to­ri­ans have long debat­ed how many Ger­mans actu­al­ly read Mein Kampf dur­ing the Third Reich, today a dif­fer­ent ques­tion has arisen: will any­one in Ger­many read it once it can be legal­ly pub­lished there in ear­ly 2016?

Welcome To Whittier, Alaska, A Community Under One Roof

Whit­ti­er, Alas­ka, is a sleepy town on the west side of Prince William Sound, tucked between pic­turesque moun­tains. But if you’re pic­tur­ing a small hud­dle of hous­es, think again.

Sitting In Stagram (2015)

This work regrams the same image 90 times until it becomes noise. The 90 images are com­piled into a video run­ning at 6 frames per sec­ond, fit­ting the 15-sec­ond time lim­it of Insta­gram. Final­ly, the video is uploaded where it auto-plays in the Insta­gram stream, decay­ing in front of people’s eyes.
