So, last week, I nearly gave myself a panic attack over getting a part of my ear pierced. Meanwhile, this guy put an ear in his arm. For art. Australian artist Stelarc had an idea to share what he heard on a daily basis with people around the world. So, as logic would lead him, he put an ear in his arm. Insert Van Gogh joke here.
If you’re wondering if this is an actual human ear underneath the surface of Stelarc’s arm, I can assure you that it’s not. It’s a non-organic “biomaterial” structure shaped like an ear, but Stelarc’s own cells will form the ear around it. And no, that is not more normal than an actual human ear being shoved into a dude’s arm. After a year, he will have a microphone inserted inside the arm-ear, which will be hooked up to a transmitter that will make available everything “heard” by the arm-ear 24 hours a day. Great.
“It isn’t for my benefit”, he said at the launch of the Kinetica Art Fair in London. “I have two perfectly good ears, but to explore the idea of me becoming an acoustic device for other people.”
No, Stelarc. It’s not for your benefit. Especially since you nearly lost your arm to an infection. But mostly because everyone listening to what your arm-ear hears will hear not only everything you hear, but everything you do. I hope it has an off-button for, um, private moments.

In what is sure to be a very important case, Illinois has one of the most restrictive laws that forbids people to record police officers on duty, but at the same time allows police to record ordinary citizens. This is the double standard and the case centers on an artist who was selling his art on the street and recorded his arrest. He isn't being charged with selling his art on the street, which is a crime in and of itself, instead he is being charged with recording his own arrest. And the worst thing, he could be facing 15 years in prison for doing so.
This story has many interesting angles and it involves the ACLU.

“In Focus: Still Life” is a selection of remarkable photographs from an installation of wonderful still life photographs presently on view at The J. Paul Getty Museum Center for Photographs. The collection presents a survey of some of the innovative ways photographers have explored and refreshed this traditional genre. During the 19th century, still life photographs tended to resemble still life paintings, with similar subjects and arrangements. Beginning in the 20th century, still life photographs have mirrored the subjects and styles that have more broadly concerned photographers in their time.
In addition to early experiments of pioneers of the photographic medium, some of the works that have been newly acquired by the Getty Center are presented here: “Still Life with Triangle and Red Eraser” (1985) by American Irving Penn, “Lorikeet with Green Cloth” (2006) by Australian Marian Drew, and “Blow Up: Untitled 15” (2007) by Israeli Ori Gersht. Gersht loosely based his “Blow Up” series on traditional floral still life paintings. His arrangements of flowers are frozen and then detonated; the explosion is captured using synchronized digital cameras, with the fragmentary detritus caught in remarkable detail. This contemporary approach to still photography belies the notion of still life as something motionless, as it explores the relationships among painting and photography, art and science, and creation and destruction.
This piece also presents the acclaimed experimental video “Still Life” (2001) created by the English artist Sam Taylor-Wood, a three-minute short film that focuses on a classically composed bowl of fruit as it decays. Also, there’s a pen. “Still Life” has been said to be one of the most classical works in contemporary art, carving a permanent record for itself in art history with hardly any commentary. This is not just a Still Life; it is based upon a particular type of still life painting that developed during the 16th and 17th centuries in Flanders and the Netherlands, part of a classical genre that contains symbols of change or death as a reminder of their inevitability. Its focus was upon confronting the vanity of worldly things through often subtle signs of elapsing time and decay.
Sam Taylor-Wood’s film represents yet another step in that direction: the image, beautiful as ever in Taylor-Wood’s universe, decomposes itself. By the end of the short film, nothing is left but a grey amorphous mass. But upon closer inspection, one detail distinguishes this picture from its predecessors. The plastic ballpoint pen, a cheap contemporary object. One that doesn’t seem to decay and doesn’t seem to be a part of the universal process of self-disappearing life. Is this what is really left here to stay after we are gone, this nothingness, this ridiculous attribute of ourselves?
This piece includes a number of stunning high-resolution color photographs, a slide show and the short film.
