  • Unseen Forces, Emily Pothast, 2010
Great piece by Emily Pothast over at Translinguistic Other on what Lawrimore Project's fate (and Chauney Peck giving her art away) means and doesn't mean for art, artists, and collectors:

Where do collectors fit into this equation? Collecting art is the act of receiving an object as a token of gratitude for investing in the ongoing economy of artmaking. Which, as an eternal game, was actually doing just fine without you, thank you very much. But which also appreciates your contribution. As soon as possible. Thank you very much.
