- Tate Britain: on the move / Nicholas Wroe / The Guardian // I’m not sure about the idea that ‘your response is as valid as our knowledge’. Responses to art works are necessarily subjective, but that certainly doesn’t invalidate knowledge. Knowledge shapes a viewer’s response, which is why the Tate is supplying information! What they mean is that knowledge is not required for a response, and that a response without knowledge can still be respected. They possibly also mean that responses with or without ‘knowledge’ are equally valid, which I disagree with.
- ‘Find what you love and let it kill you’ / James Rhodes / The Guardian // Great article, and very provocative. I completely agree with him about how to spend a day. Vegetating on the sofa appeals to all of us at times, but I think many people could make far better use of their spare time creatively.

- Scott Mitchell’s Team Sky photos / Scott Mitchell / Team Sky Pro Cycling // By my reckoning, Scott Mitchell takes the best cycling photos out there at the moment. I don’t think he’s actually been photographing cycling for that long, but maybe because of that produces some great images. I’d be interested to know how much of Team Sky’s web traffic is driven by Scott’s photos.
