Virtual gender swap via DesignBoom. This is an interesting concept but I don’t see why it has to be specific to gender. Size? Race? Health? Also, gender is not necessarily a binary thing as it seems to be presented here.

Speaking of gender, Facebook has some interesting news.

People are making the internet a better place! (Don’t tell my student’s I endorsed something Wikipedia related! 😉 )

A friend shared Ren Hang’s photography with me a few weeks ago because of my work on Chang Jia’s Standing Up Peeing.

Burning Down The House, the Tenth Gwangju Biennale

The tenth Gwangju Biennale’s theme is Burning Down The House. According to the Biennale website, “Burning Down the House explores the process of burning and transformation, a cycle of obliteration and renewal witnessed throughout history. Evident in aesthetics, historical events, and an increasingly rapid course of redundancy and renewal in commercial culture, the Biennale reflects on this process of, often violent, events of destruction or self-destruction―burning the home one occupies―followed by the promise of the new and the hope for change.” Read the rest here.
