The War of Art
by Steven Pressfield
This book was recommended on a podcast I listen to called "Back to work" with Merlin Mann and Dan Benjamin. It outlines an excellent model for how to think about the work of creating. It is a very practical approach that gives due respect to the more undefinable sources and motivations involved in making art. It's a quick read but dense with great insight. I'm also a fan of the narrator George Guidall.
Annenberg Space for Photography: Digital Darkroom
We went and saw the Digital Darkroom exhibit at the Annenberg Space for Photography downtown. I was given good advice to go on the weekend when parking is a lot cheaper and the area is a lot less crowded.
It was an unusually amazing windy day, which definitely colored my experience. The work is good but nothing that surprised or amazed me. Mostly I enjoyed the polish of the exhibit. The space is well organized. The documentary videos interviewing the artists are informative and a good length. I could do without the 3D-glasses stuff but it was easy enough to pass by.
Well done Annenberg Space for Photography
