Facebook is only viable if you pay for ads. Instagram is owned by Facebook and isn’t much better. Twitter is actively dying a horrible death as we speak. Posting on any platform feels like screaming into the void.
I was recently invited to the Mid journey IA art beta and after playing around for less than a day immediately signed up for a paid account. I’m having a lot of fun learning how to use the system and getting some surprisingly cool results.
I see some very interesting stuff in the future for my art personally and the overall art world in general. If you want to keep up with the new side project I’m working on be sure and follow @MaterialVessels over on insta.
I wasn’t as affected by Bowie’s music as much as some, but his love of sci-fi was one of the things that drew me towards it. Space Oddity has always been a favorite. More than his music I was touched by how his passing mirrored my own dad’s death from cancer last year.
It really hit me when I did the math and realized that Bowie would have been diagnosed in August of 2014, the same month my father was. He died almost exactly one year later. I’m still processing his final album Blackstar in light of the circumstances surrounding it’s creation. I’m mostly impressed by his composure, secrecy and focus knowing he had a terminal illness and limited time remaining.
