Two links

This morning I posted a longish post over at Urbanities. It’s on two books I read together recently: Cristina Rivera Garza’s Nadie me verá llorar and Raymond Craib’s Cartographic Mexico.

Also, I happened upon this beautiful video the other day. It reminded me of The Isle of Flowers, for the way it recreates a whole network of human and nonhuman action. The video has other purposes that the strictly aesthetic–it’s more a trailer for a hair-based materials project–but just look at the way it documents the passage of human hair on its own path…

Happy new year to anyone reading this.
