If originality is a “sense of novelty and freshness” then, in the act of constructing ourselves, originality is not the goal. We construct a self-portrait, relying on existing objects – books, quotes from authors and artists, images, art – that we are more than happy to show off to others for them to use as masturbation material or for the material by which they align themselves. This is the new action painting – the curational archive. The referential self portrait. The portrait of any other artist could be readily used to explain yourself, just reblog it and caption it with “same.” The past consistently becomes the present, not through linear time, but through the constant reconstruction and relabeling of it

New geometric works by artist Aakash Nihalani (Previously on Supersonic) where the two-dimensional, brightly colored sculptures become three dimensional mind tricks that pass through some willing bystanders. See more below!
There’s still some copies of IGG 4 left!
