The art and the whitewash are the
This is the politics of the whitewash; someone else has already suggested that
the form of the whitewash is also art, if it’s not engulfing an entire
surface area. Extrapolating from that, I think there’s an artist who actually
goes around just putting up chunky whitewash-like abstract forms on blank walls
in a contrasting color, leaving the impression that graffiti was underneath. Or
that was a fever dream I had.

I like this excerpt that has the crew punching in landing scenarios into the
flight computer, but it doesn’t know it’s a nice day out. “Putting in the ten
items affecting landing performance on the initial pass, the computation
failed. It gave a message saying it was unable to calculate that many failures.
So we then looked at them in more detail and rejected ones that we considered
minor and things that were affecting landing performance on wet runways. It was
a beautiful day in Singapore thankfully and not wet so it obviously wasn’t
going to affect our landing performance.” Dear computer, it is a sunny day!
Love, your crew. [via
