Welcome to click click, the sporadic review of what I find worth clicking on the internet.

Objects, photographed by Andy Warhol between 1977 and 1983, via The Factory. The first few links relate to the world of objects in some way…

  • Artistry and Agency in a World of Vibrant Matter – what does it mean to be ultra-sensitive to the autonomous desires of inanimate objects in an era where objects are so abundant they’re virtually worthless? A provocative and slightly loopy lecture. Via Timo.
  • Daniel Eatock – splitting the difference between too simple and too clever, this conceptual artist’s work (including many object-based punchlines) reveals its brilliance when viewed in chronological sequence.
  • How Tide Detergent Became a Drug Currency – good branding works in the black market too. Did you ever think soap could be as much of a status statement as the clothes it launders? This story makes you consider the those fluorescent containers in a whole new way. Via Matty.
  • Joe Eula fashion illustrations for Halston – a wonderful collection of design sketches from the keen eye and quick hand of the master.
  • “Privileged White People” and Art – fascinating conversation on the absence of narrative or political comment in modern abstraction – and a theory of how growing up in the nineties produced such polite young bohemians. Via Brittany.
  • Retro photography from the future – viewing nostalgia through a futurist’s lens.

Because, karma.

  • Tara Aghdashloo – the first sketch of the year, inspired by my vivacious friend Tara.
  • Ana Kinsella – includes one of my posts among some excellent fashion-focused long reads.
  • A Sewing Life“At twenty I knitted, at thirty I worked in an office, in my forties I sew.”
  • Forever out of place“many think I am a scientist. But I am not – I just love to mess up in the lab!”
  • youlookfab“Share outfits, chat about style and get advice from a friendly community.”
  • Dossie Bubble’s PAPER DOLLS “FREE CUT-OUTS”
