This is a very important video to watch… I have it starting at 21:21 which is where it gets into the negative effects of social media on critical thought and discourse.
The ending is great and after watching this and reading about this issue for several months now and having many, many discussions with my brilliant wife Eve I decided today to remove all social media apps from my iPhone… only apps essential for business are left- no more distractions. I also turned off almost all notifications and have to admit today has been a lot quieter and nicer. I still have access on my laptop to FB and Twitter but I am going to limit that as much as possible… too much noise and not enough time to think.
Viva la Revolution- Steve
This is very important… yes the message is delivered with humor- but if Net Neutrality ends so will the internet as we know it…
Call your representative and get involved… the internet is perhaps the greatest gift the American people have given to the world so let’s not fuck it up now…
Viva la Revolution- Stephen
Helmholz Fine Art is proud to present Motion Pictures, a new solo show by artist Stephen Schaub, featuring a suite of brand new works on a monumental scale, running from July 10th to July 18th
In a special one-night only event July 15 from 5:00 to 7:30pm Schaub will give a short presentation on the body of work which utilizes ground-breaking techniques of his own invention.
These unique, one-of-a-kind images explore themes of perception,memory, and the passage of time. Planes of focus shift, subjects come forward and recede. Much like the works of cubism and pointillism, one experiences the artworks differently depending on one’s vantage point.Schaub’s artworks have been described as “art dreaming about itself.”
In celebration the revolution’s ten year anniversary, I have decided to post the Figital Revolution Manifesto book as a free PDF download. (The print copy is no longer available for purchase online.) Written in 2007 and admittedly snarky and over the top, I am struck by the fact that, despite so many changes in the industry, the book is entirely still relevant today! I want to thank my wife, Eve Ogden Schaub as my co-author… she has moved onto bigger projects like her book Year of No Sugar which went viral… and her next book is due out in January 2017 so stay tuned.
Viva la Revolution-
