SQUAREPUSHER / Damogen Furies – Squarepusher video animated by Joshua Davis
Edward Snowden At Fort Greene Park by James – And another 3D model of the Edward Snowden bust.

No, who really needs it is the new global class of cultural entrepreneurs for which art has become a truly international opportunity, as the emerging economic regions seek to assert themselves on the world stage through the vehicle of the new global art culture.”
