A post about Walker Evans and the news that the H22O sim in Second Life is set to close.
“Evans… perceived as Atget had done, that we sense nothing in isolation, that we sense this for what it is only by reference to another thing which it is not”.
“Evans, an ironist through and through concludes that culture is provisional, maintained with difficulty in the face of time and the decay which time brings.”
