First ever! Digital Art Auction. Excited to see how
artists are able to define what ownership means of digital work.


So Philips (with one “L”,the lighting company) has this sweet showroom in Gramercy. The screens are controlled by an iPhone app that loads different digital content. Of course a lot of the uses are corporate, but there was an artist there who was hoping to incorporate them in his booth at Art Basel Miami.

What would you do with all these screens?



Got some awesome Raspberry Pi protips from the dude who invented it (Eben,right) and the CEO of Pimoroni who sells awesome accessories for it (Paul, left).

I came here after looking at art for a few hours. The nature vs. art debate isn’t really what I’m after though. It’s John Cage.
I first learned about his piece 4’33” and it gave me chills. It felt like what I had been trying to explain for the umpteenth time to my grandparents about how EVERYTHING IS ART, he did 40 years ago with this silent, stunning work.

I sat at this stream for 30 minutes and tried my hardest to listen. Not just to the pretty nature sounds, but to the whir of trucks on nearby Route 22, the clang of the train, my own stomach grumbling, the mosquitos circling, an Iphone ringing in the parking lot, a very distant car alarm. John Cage has helped me exercise mindfulness and to truly listen on a regular basis.

Hopefully The Generator can in a small way be a place where mind-bending ideas of what art can be will enter into peoples minds for the first time, and is it did with me and John Cage, change them forever.
