Listened to Mark Farid’s lecture

The compromise of privacy and how the compromised privacy is used are two different things.
Access to more privacy and footprints can provide you with a convenient and safer environment, but it’s the other things like censorship, different legal definitions that cause problems.
It’s a lot like “technology is innocent”, but in reality technology cannot exist as technology itself.

Robert Rauschenberg:
His intention was to work ‘in that gap between art and life’

and Gia also added this great quote from Marcel Duchamp:
‘What art is in reality is this missing link, not the links which exist. It’s not what you see that is art, art is the gap. I like this idea and even if it’s not true I accept it for the truth.’(Arturo Schwarz, The Complete Works of Marcel Duchamp (New York, NY: Delano Greenidge Editions, 1997), 1: 258.)

Art for me is using a form (a design) to represent the abstract mechanism (phenomenology). It’s like building the key to the link.
I like the work of Joseph Beuys, where form is objective and subjective the same time.
