This month in Artforum:

Mario Carpo on big data and digital design:

“In hindsight, the curving forms of the first digital age appear more and more as a transitional style. Today’s data-driven computation is alien to that modern logic.”—Mario Carpo

Manthia Diawara on the art of Kader Attia:

“Attia’s practice is one of relation, of setting things in proximity, even conflict.”—Manthia Diawara

Jeffrey Weiss on Robert Morris‘s recent work:

“Morris’s large sculptural objects are situational but not situated: They possess neither an optimal setting nor even an optimum state, in that there is no obvious reason to prefer one iteration of a given work over another.”—Jeffrey Weiss

Ed Halter on the cinematic time machine

“The time traveler can be seen as a stand-in for the spectator herself, thrust into the past by the powers of cinema.”—Ed Halter
