Culture Shock

Photo Contest ends. In the meantime ...

The window to submit photos for the eighth annual Alibi Photo Contest closes on Thursday, March 17, at 5 p.m. Thank you to everyone who sent in their pics—be sure to check out the March 31 issue of the Alibi to see who won. In the meantime, photo-buffs can hear a talk on Edwin Land by MIT’s Dr. Victor McElheny at the Albuquerque Museum (2000 Mountain NW) on Sunday, March 20, at 1 p.m. Land was a businessman, war contractor, follower of the arts and an inventor. He worked on early smart bombs and one of his inventions led to swirly lights inside jukeboxes. He also invented the Polaroid camera. They make everything look like it’s 1974. It is important to note that while Land invented the Polaroid, he wasn’t the one who instructed you to shake it like one. That was Outkast. The talk is in conjunction with the ongoing exhibit A Passionate Light: Polaroids by H. Joe Waldrum. For more information, go to cabq.gov/museum.

Vistas Latinas are accomplished in getting people to think, feel and discuss, and their latest show at 105 Art Gallery, ¡Que Feo!, is no exception. The group embodies the old art school maxim of connecting the personal to the political by tackling new questions and redefining old values.

Dickhead

Local writer summons Philip K. Dick in novel

Philip K. Dick was a strange guy—or at least his writing is. You’ll find his works in the science-fiction section of a bookstore, but his writing isn’t that easy to classify. His words can seem like the musings of a philosopher and the ramblings of a mentally ill person, all at the same time.
