Jeff Koons Must Die MFA thesis by Hunter Jonakin. Help yourself to a nice little interview nibble on Kill Screen.

The game is set in a large museum during a Jeff Koons retrospective. The viewer is given a rocket launcher and the choice to destroy any of the work displayed in the gallery. If nothing is destroyed the player is allowed to look around for a couple of minutes and then the game ends. However, if one or more pieces are destroyed, an animated model of Jeff Koons walks out and chastises the viewer for annihilating his art. He then sends guards to kill the player. If the player survives this round then he or she is afforded the ability to enter a room where waves of curators, lawyers, assistants, and guards spawn until the player is dead. In the end, the game is unwinnable, and acts as a comment on the fine art studio system, museum culture, art and commerce, hierarchical power structures, and the destructive tendencies of gallery goers, to name a few.

From dystopia to utopia | Fanciful Megalomania by Jonathan Gales via dpr-barcelona
The film project Fanciful Megalomania is described by its author Jonathan Gales, as some “Fanciful drawings of construction sites“. Gales is a film maker and designer based in London. For his master degree at the Bartlett School of Architecture, he is researching on the mixed use of film, animation, music and photography. Gales says about his project “the film is focused around the city and his fanciful speculations of it”, and this statement just makes us think on the current visions that artist and architects have on the term “city”.
cit·y (st)n. pl. cit·ies1. A center of population, commerce, and culture; a town of significant size and importance.2. The inhabitants of a city considered as a group.3. An ancient Greek city-state.4. Slang Used in combination as an intensive: The playing field was mud city after the big rain.
Seems like we don’t see the city just as “a center of population” anymore. Far away of the avant-garde discourse and aesthetic production, it looks like we’re facing a globally-oriented debate which shows the future of our cities dominated by ruins. A dystopic approach to our future. 
Conflating real and imagined spatialities, Jonathan Gales is working on some graphic concepts that shows incomplete buildings, still under construction, being demolished alongside larger construction sites, alluding to a city that is increasing in development plans faster than it can be realised.

Let’s try this definition out:
Creating fiction is the act of perceiving the world, or a world, as it may be instead of merely as it is.

I love it when the limitations of our past gain positive associations from nostalgia and become fetishized in our culture. Not ironic — I love this stuff.

There seems to be a lot talk lately about 3eanuts and its comparisons to Garfield Minus Garfield and even to the Nietzsche Family Circus, but before any of those there was The Nameless Dread: Family Circus mashedup with H.P. Lovecraft.
