i think my concept of "revolutionary art" is work produced by a community where the primary "audience" and subject is also that community. art that people make together to better understand some material system or as part of a collective process of healing. or maybe even art that functions as an invitation to be in community with others. even if there is a tangible artifact (a book, a film, etc.) left like a residue of these productive encounters, what's important is the process.

Seeing a movie in theaters:
-8 bit color space
-Terrible black levels
-1080p resolution...2K if you're lucky
-DTS compressed sound... again, if you're lucky
Seeing a movie at home:
-10 or 12 bit color space
-Perfect black levels
-Dolby Atmos sound
It's a strange world we live in, where a few hundred dollars of consumer electronics provides a genuinely better experience than many thousands of dollars of industrial equipment...
Sometimes I miss the days of IM, when the ability to respond instantly to a chat was still novel. Half the time when I start to compose a text these days, I delete it because I think "Wait, this is probably only funny for the next five minutes, but the person I'm sending it to doesn't usually respond for at least an hour."
