A friend of ours has started a project called No Commercial Value. Seems to be a kind of new-media repository for projects which, well, ain’t gonna sell much. Per the site:
It is an experiment in curatorial approaches and merging of traditional mediums such as galleries, television and social media sites.
We wish it weren’t flash, and hope it gets updated more than once a year. Good luck, you non-money-making people!
No Commercial Value
We like this flickr photo pool: !Faux: Things that are Fake. It’s the genuine article!
That is all.
This thread on AskMetafilter lead us to a wonderful collection of links of scanned book illustrations. Particular highlights are Vaguery’s Flickr collection of scanned public domain books, the Distributed Proofreaders project, creating e-books out of public domain books through crowd-sourced volunteer scanning, fromoldbooks.org, and childrensbooksonline.org.
MoMA Atlantic Pacific is open. All the ads in the station have been replaced by art reproductions from MoMA’s collection, serving as a giant ad, of course, for the Museum. Eh, we can deal with it. But we secretly hope a Poster Boy out there makes a remix. (We Are All Poster Boy)
