"But also, the format of television— much more than film— lends itself to how people consume content now. In small doses. Think about music. The release of a full-length album, with all its requisite buildup and hype, while still theoretically a cool idea, is no longer that interesting. A musician who wins today tours relentlessly, releases a song or two a month, multiple EPs, behind-the-scenes vide0s, photoshoots, etc. Maybe they even drop a surprise album. It’s a constant stream of content."

I all in that episodic storytelling is the pulse of today. I’ll all in that we internalize music in pieces and remember each individual one more than the collections.

I don’t though think the long form visual (movies) or writing (the book) is an any way vestigial. Music—maybe.

People are spending more time on mobile vs desktop:

And more of their mobile time using apps, not the web:

This is a worrisome trend for the web. Mobile is the future. What wins mobile, wins the Internet. Right now, apps are winning and the web is losing.

Moreover, there are…

Jacqueline Sferra Rada’s work investigates the subtle changes of nature. Working with acrylic glaze on gesso or pastel she captures the nuance of atmospheric change on paper. She translates the ethereal to the transcendental with a layering of translucent tones. Her images are her memories: reflections on views she has seen firsthand. Simultaneously evoking the nostalgia of memory while promoting the restorative affects of nature in our increasingly digital increasingly world, these mind-scapes also serve as visual reflections on the negative effects industry and commerce cumulatively have on our surroundings.

A native New Yorker, she lives and works in both NYC and Long Island and has travelled extensively. Her time spent across all seasons on the beaches of Long Island are thrillingly reflected in her work. In addition to studying at The Brooklyn Museum Art School, Sferra Rada received a B.A. in Fine Arts cum laude from Hunter College, NYC.

Amongst her career highlight thus far: in 1990, she was selected to participate in the Master Painting Program IV at Long Island University/Southampton campus, in September 2000 she was a participant in the A.I.R. program at the Nantucket School of Art & Design in Massachusetts, in 2012 she was awarded a three week residency at Cil Rialaig Ireland, in 2013 she participated in an interactive artist in residence program in Puglia, Italy and in 2014 she will workshop at Art Incontro Sicilia also in Italy.

Her work has been shown at the Albright-Knox Members Gallery in Buffalo, NY, and the Birmingham Museum of Art and the NYU Small Works Show. Sferra Rada exhibits regularly in the NYC area and her work is in many private collections. She maintains a studio in LIC and is active in the NYC art community where she Chaired The Friends of the Hunter College Art Galleries for 7 years and is a board member of both Artists Talk on Art, an ongoing weekly panel discussion and The Federation of Modern Painters & Sculptors, an organization founded in 1940, for which she serves as Exhibition Coordinator.

Terrific image. Tells a story in some segments I don’t follow but should.

schlafnotes:

Since I joined RRE Ventures last fall, I’ve spent time researching mobile on-demand services that we are able to access with a push of a button. “On-demand mobile services” (ODMS) is a broad category so I believe it’s important to start with a definition. My friend Semil Shah defines ODMS as…
