Siobhan Bohnacker on the photographer Lucas Samaras’s arresting self-portrait “Ultra-Large (Hands)”: http://nyr.kr/1mJ6opQ
“The simplicity of the image stands in opposition to the chaos of much of Samaras’s other work, yet his enormous hands, with their vivid color and loose, dramatic configuration, resemble a nebula glowing in a night sky.”

Books themselves are perhaps the first chatbots: long-winded and poor listeners, they nonetheless have the power to make the reader feel known, understood, challenged, spurred to greatness, not alone. On the other hand, we might notice that writing, the medium of literature and the Turing Test, leaves out much of what makes language tick: timing, prosody, emphasis, tone. Language is more than libretto; we shouldn’t settle for the sheet music when we can have the performance. — Brian Christian on Spike Jonze’s “Her” and the digital world’s intimacy: http://nyr.kr/1drVhOz (via newyorker)
