Moderation

CYBERSPACE, 10 January — In the glorious free speech year of 2010 Rose was moderated out of SL7B and VBCO was moderated out of Burn2. Probably a lot of other artists were moderated out of a lot of other things. Here at iRez, I have never moderated a comment out. We’ve had very little in […]

Drag!

SAN FRANCISCO, 5 August — Today United States District Judge Vaughn R. Walker struck down anti-same-sex-marriage “Proposition 8”: Moral disapproval alone is an improper basis on which to deny rights to gay men and lesbians.

Nienke Klunder

LONDON, 4 July — Like Nikki S. Lee and Cindy Sherman, Nienke Klunder uses transformations of her appearance and self portraiture to explore identity.
