Daily Pic: A close-up on the five tons of porcelain sunflower seeds – about four million of them – hand made on the orders of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, and now on show at Mary Boone Gallery in New York. They are a small part of the 150-ton sea of seeds that Ai installed in 2010 at Tate Modern in London, but they still have a wonderful effect. They inevitably stand for the sea of humans who live in China, and on earth – both for our  essential uniformity, and for the differences among us. You’re impressed by the quantity of seeds on view, until you realize how many more you’d need to  represent a full six billion people. The thought of all that chewing and spitting…

COLLECTING + MATERIALS + FORM + PERCEPTION + SURFACES
— When reeling in the line from art and pop what makes the environment so different today, as opposed to fifty or one hundred years ago, is that the real world of Web 2.0 keeps your mind in the ether. As images transfer to hands, file extensions get trashed and everything sourced, found, junked; then somehow materializes again. Putting everything back together, the image of the object never returns as it normally should. This makes perfect sense to me: it is the battle of representation rather than the reality itself that concerns me most. Things can always be a bit more insane.

opens tonight, Fri, Jan 3, 7-9p:“One Trace After” Elizabeth Orr, Carlos Reyes, Claudia Weber, Geo Wyeth curated by Alison Burstein exhibition’s Tumblr: onetraceafter.tumblr.comNURTUREart, 56 Bogart St., Brooklyn, NYOne Trace After investigates a question that traditional, tidy exhibition narratives rarely consider: what can the visitor of a gallery see, experience, or know at any given instant? Rather than suggesting a prescribed or definitive answer, this exhibition embraces the fact that a visitor can never fully take in an artwork or a group of artworks in a single viewing. Since an artwork’s characteristics reveal themselves in pieces as they circulate through discourse, emerge in relation to a context, or unfold over an extended duration, visitors can only ever grasp a “trace” of an artwork in one encounter—a moment of the work’s dynamic existence that reflects both its immanent conditions and its immediate surroundings.  - thru Jan 31
