I love these prints from Sonnenzimmer’s test print sale, where you can see the traces of our Marfa Dialogues poster. A test print, according to Sonnenzimmer, is “a term used to describe a single sheet of paper used at the beginning of a print job. These sheets are sent through the press before a job starts, in order to make sure everything is printing properly. Overtime, the prints accumulate layers and layers of art, resulting in colorful patchwork of random images and colors, creating new compositions as a result.” Cool. Sale lasts until September 24. –NI

And we had nowhere to go to spend our days without much money.

Some have misunderstood our research to say that two thirds of cancer cases are due to bad luck.
