Our incentives are clearly cooler than a popsicle during Weinergate. But just so you have some background—we're educators as well as peddlers—here are some choice contributions our three generous and talented friends have made to TC and LI in the past.
Rivka Galchen, "Case Notes of a Medical Student," Triple Canopy, June 9, 2008
"After more than three years of a medical school education that had left me hostile, nauseous, and far better manicured than I liked, I chose to spend a month working in the psychiatric ER. I didn’t think of psychiatry as particularly intellectual or (for that matter) barbaric, reductive, a kind of violence, madcap fun, an exciting field reinvigorated by neuroscience, a good lifestyle, or useful; I just thought of psychiatry as kind of OK."
Cory Arcangel, "Content Producer," Light Industry, August 5, 2008
"In 2006, on a whim, I decided to go uptown to Sam Ash music store, buy a Glockenspiel and record glockenspiel parts for the songs on Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run record that did not already feature that instrument. Most everything I have ever made has been ignited from a similar semi-destructive whim. A certain idea, most often against my better judgment, mixes with my slight OCD, and I can't stop thinking about it until it is completed."
Paul Chan, "Waiting for Godot in New Orleans: The Bootleg Video," Light Industry, September 23, 2008
"Because Godot was never meant to be seen outside its original context and form, and because of legal issues, there was hardly any video documentation of the performances themselves. But there are some. And tonight, he’ll show them for the first time in New York."
