“We live in a time I think not of mainstream, but of many streams, or even, if you insist upon a river of time, that we have come to delta, maybe even beyond delta to an ocean which is going back to the skies.”
— John Cage, KPFA Radio, 1992 — from “The Rest Is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century” by Alex Ross, page 371.
Just a reminder for anyone reading this, after a lot of hard work the Optelgoed photography exhibition will be opened this afternoon by our mayor, you can find a writeup by Cindy on the official Optelgoed blog. The location is the old postal office in our town hall.
We are organizing an exhibition about the garbage disposal area The Tiep in Oudtshoorn, South Africa from May 31st until June 10th. We brought 60 high quality printed photos with us when we came back from Oudtshoorn, which were taken by street children using disposable cameras. The pictures will be displayed in the old post office at the local municipality offices and are for sale for €50,– each. The official opening is at 4 PM tuesday the 31st. More information can be found on these sites (Dutch):
Rest in peace Mr. Mandelbrot.
