  1. Reading Right-to-Left |

    James Bridle on form. “I know people don’t read books like they used to, and they don’t think like they used to, but I struggle to care. … I’m feeling more sure of [the internet’s] cultural value and legacy, and more assertive about stating it.” Also, that reading a landscape right-to-left stuff.

  2. How Britain exported next-generation surveillance — Matter — Medium

    Finally got round to reading James’s piece on Automatic Number Plate Recognition cameras. It’s odd to think of this vast network of vision and computation churning away monitoring live and historical movements of people, invisibly.

  3. Planespotting

    James Bridle, spotting and tracking the private coaches and planes that are deporting immigrants in our name. Good, difficult stuff.

  4. Anatomy of a failed rendition

    James, better than ever, digging into the network to track the plane, hired by the Home Office, that failed to deport a hunger striker, too weak to see or stand, from the UK. “…climbing and banking to avoid thunderheads and moral accountability.”

  5. How to see through the cloud

    James Bridle follows a traceroute. Simple, yes, but really nice. More people should see more of this kind of thing.

  6. Australia: Drone Shadows, Diagrams, and Political Systems |

    Great, measured piece by James on Arts Queensland’s last-minute banning of his artwork, and authorities’ embarrassment over drones. “The Drone Shadow is not just a picture of a drone. It is a diagram of a political system.”

  7. The New Aesthetic and its Politics

    James on what’s beneath the surface. “This wilful anti-technicalism, which is a form of anti-intellectualism, mirrors the present cultural obsession with nostalgia, retro and vintage which was one of the spurs for the entire New Aesthetic project.”

  8. The New Aesthetic: James Bridle’s Drones and Our Invisible, Networked World | Vanity Fair

    James: “…there’s no such thing as avant-gardes anymore. … But it leads to that idea of there being avant-garde figures that are ahead of everything else. But there’s not. It’s just me, looking at this stuff, and going, ‘Have you seen this? Have you actually seen it?’”

  9. Stuff from 2012 – best Bridle piece

    Best Ben Terrett blog post of 2012.

  10. Will Wiles – On the New Aesthetic

    Long article and an interview with James. Good stuff. (via everyone)

  11. An Interview With James Bridle of the New Aesthetic - The Huffington Post

    Brilliant: “a lot of people out there have basically gone ‘the New Aesthetic is wrong’ and it can be many things but it can’t be wrong because I just made it up.”

  12. An Essay on the New Aesthetic | Beyond The Beyond |

    Long, excellent essay from Bruce Sterling on the New Aesthetic, why it’s very interesting, and the problems it faces. Well worth a read.

  13. The New Aesthetic

    James Bridle is accumulating a lovely collection of images/videos/ideas here. Both vague and very specific.

  14. Hauntological Futures |

    The first of seven posts, which I’m looking forward to. I often find myself agonising over related things: a nostalgia for past futures at the expense of… well, whatever I might otherwise think about the future.

  15. Doris Lessing’s The Golden Notebook

    Conversations around pages of a book.

  16. Walter Benjamin’s Aura: Open Bookmarks and the future eBook

    James Bridle again, saying and proposing wonderful things.

  17. Bkkeepr | Track your reading and bookmark on the go

    I either didn’t know James Bridle had done this or I’d forgotten. Bad of me either way. It’s very nice. A bit like LibraryThing, but you add/track/bookmark your reading via Twitter.

  18. On Bookmarking, Dog Ears and Marginalia |

    James Bridle, and commenters, on bookmarking, taking notes, etc while reading.
