Vincent van Gogh – The Letters

0 #

All the surviving letters written and received by Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) are contained in this edition of his correspondence. Over and above the 902 surviving letters, there must have been at least 550 letters written to Van Gogh, and at least 290 letters written by Van Gogh that we no longer have. Excepting only the digital form in which they are now being published, this is the continuation of a long tradition.

  • Bryan Appleyard double in The Sunday Times. One piece on Iain McGilchrist (Master and His Emissary book), another on global warming. #
  • There were 4 - FOUR - minarets in Switzerland before the ban today.
    I'm atheist through and through, but a ban on a STRUCTURE is ridiculous. #
  • Was going to artbarterlondon.co.uk, but combination of torn travelcard, bad weather and unread Sunday Times makes it stay at home instead. #

Jeff Koons’ Dangling Train Sculpture Delayed | SLAMXHYPE

0 #


When it was announced that Jeff Koons had received a $25million commission for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) it was hailed as the most expensive public art commission ever. However, Bloomberg have reported today that the project has been postponed, if not cancelled altogether.

The piece which is set to feature a full scale 70 foot long 1944 Baldwin train locomotive suspended over the museum’s entrance from a 161 foot tall crane, which would start up three times a day (12 noon, 3pm and 6pm) moving its wheels, blowing its whistle and letting off steam.

  • Kate Voegele and Katie Vogel both play London on Tuesday night. Not going to either; but will someone be at the wrong gig? #
  • And we are there, Bergen-Oslo by train, on telly, in real time. And on Twitter in not so real time. Some good music, some crap. #
  • Signalling problems as we approach Oslo. Further delays. #
  • Pic 18 Bergenbanen documentary. Long unscheduled stop at Nathionaltheatret to the sound of Doobie Brothers.
    http://twitpic.com/rd8tk #
  • At Asker station, "exit on the left".
    Instead of snowy mountains, we now have grafitti covered walls. Welcome urbanity! #
  • The caff is now closing as we are approaching Oslo. In a very long tunnel. #
  • Pic 17 of Bergenbanen documentary.
    Long stop at Drammen station. Now at sea level, a long way from Finse 1222.

    More urban minute by minute. http://twitpic.com/rd1na #
  • "We will be at Hokksund station in 5-6 minutes" just announced on tannoy.
    So much better than Southern's "soon at" (but small country). #
  • Australian and other tourists all praising the scenic trip on Bergensbanen.
    Regret: I never took Flåmsbanen while living in Bergen. #
  • Pic 15. There's a kid's playroom on the train. But looks like kids are bored and watching telly. Meta-telly then? http://twitpic.com/rcwju #

    Not as exciting though. #

  • This documentary on Bergenbanen is a future prizewinner. If judges have the patience to sit through it in these rapidfire twtternet times. #
  • Pic 11: Soon at Flå and now Erik Wøllo providing 70s droneprog. Meandering traintrack, meandering soundtrack.

  • In case you are concerned about my mental health, reading The Guardian (a cause for concern in some circles I guess) on board the "train". #
  • Seven hours or so the trip from Bergen to Oslo.I once travelled Bergen-Oslo-Trondheim-Bodø by train. 24 hrs in Bodø and then back to Bergen. #
  • Pic 10 from trans-Norway express.
    On board the TV-train again, left Gol awhile ago and now approaching Nesbyen.
