the russian suprematists were so amazing. check out olga rozanova's "Color Painting (Non-Objective Composition)"—it's like rothko thirty years before rothko https://www.wikiart.org/en/olga-rozanova/color-painting-non-objective-composition
this clip of a VHS recording of a belorussian staging of "Victory over the Sun" definitely looks like it could be on The Ring video tape
more on "victory over the sun" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victory_over_the_Sun
I am incredibly off task at this point
@aparrish I love how committed the futurists are to their shtick. "The sun is old! Destroy it! It is in the past! Ok, now shoot the past!"
@aparrish i heard someone talking about exactly this on Radio 4 Extra in the last few days
@aparrish "The audience reacted negatively and even violently to the performance, as have some subsequent critics and historians."
I like to imagine a bunch of critics and historians rioting over a production that took place a century earlier
@aparrish OK... weird. I've just been reading about this as of a few days ago, in an art theory paperback I found at a yard sale.
@xenophora I believe this is called the Baader-Mayakovsky Effect
@aparrish oh my god!
Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
