Fake is the New Real

A guy I vaguely knew at Oberlin (and I'm pretty sure it's someone I didn't like) has this website Fake is the New Real. It's a collection of his art. It's largely conceptual and built around mapping ideas, connections and images. It's good stuff.

I particularly like his map of Chicago. It's a photograph of hundreds of street corners in Chicago. Each tracing the relationship of Chicago's gridded plan.
Anyway just a site I found interesting, and I do have a moral obligation to give credit to the myriad Obies doing fun things in the world. There's a completely non-sensical feeling of reflected glow from the accomplishments and efforts of my former classmates. Silly, I know.
