a game of creating simulacra that are beautiful and totally useless, but give one some aesthetic pleasure

since the beginning of november i have been – occasionally, but sleeplessly – playing a game called ‘let’s create pottery’ on my phone. i like the way things can be created and sent off into the nothingness with a faint hope that it is not nothingness.

this is a game of creation of true and potent – and beautiful – simulacra, as there is no clay and paint, and enamel and brushes; neither is there a camera that takes pictures of the pottery. but the pictures exist. some of them i publish below.
