DXXI: A Discourse On Art

© Lani Kai
Trypto: the readability is kind of lost
Trypto: for all we know, it might say temporary art
Trypto: actually, most contemporary art is temporary
Lani Kai: art is fleeting
Lani Kai: all contemporary art is temporary
Lani Kai: it no longer is contemporary after a certain point
Trypto: that is a contemporary affectation
Trypto: some art historians argue that current art is technically post-contemporary
Lani Kai: that would imply that it hails from the future
Lani Kai: unless "contemporary" is a time period like "Baroque" and "Renaissance"
Trypto: yeah, contemporary now refers to 1975-1995
Lani Kai: I sense a certain laziness in calling something post-something else
Lani Kai: like postmodernism
Lani Kai: and post-postmodernism
Lani Kai: how many iterations before something new is coined?
Trypto: that is one of the problems of the post-post-modern era
Trypto: it's pluralist; there's no authoritative voice
Trypto: so what happens is always just the path of least resistence
Trypto: anyway, about your photograph
Trypto: it's ambiguous
Trypto: temporary Arthur Miller
Lani Kai: extemporary arthritis

DXVIII: Partially Inspired

Trypto: what is that?
Lani Kai: the Walt Disney Concert Hall
Lani Kai: and the not-so-inspired box office at its base
Trypto: lol, I couldn't be sure
Trypto: I've never seen anything except the roof
Lani Kai: can this really be mistaken for anything else?
Lani Kai: except maybe the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao
Trypto: I dunno
Trypto: I thought it might have been one of your weird Japanese things

Trypto: I wonder when we will run out of server space
Lani Kai: never
Lani Kai: by the time we near 1024MB, our allocated space will have been expanded
Lani Kai: at this pace, it will be 1024GB by the time we use 1024MB
Trypto: what if I decide to start posting 10 MB files
Lani Kai: you can't
Lani Kai: the limit is 8MB
Lani Kai: and they automatically get resized

Trypto: I want to be a monkey
Trypto: nom nom nom
