Nicolas Sassoon’s Waterfall 6 is in the window of Phillips (starting bid: $800) and it’s not as disorienting as I thought it would be.

“There’s some trademark violation going on, obviously. Whatever.” F.A.T. artist Aram Bartholl’s talking about Evan Roth’s project Ideas Worth Spreading. Pop on a headset, pop in your own Powerpoint or just stand next to the giant red “TED” and it’s your TED Talk. Sup?

“It’s about the positive outcome of a disaster,” Eyebeam Art+ Technology Center resident artist Jonathan Minard tells ANIMAL. One of New York’s most inspiring creative spaces suffered $250,000 in dammage to AV equipment, books and computers from Hurricane Sandy’s toxic, corroding, 3-foot floods.
