    If people aren’t struck by how disingenuous some of these manipulations are at all, then they aren’t looking. The protest is not about returning to the British Empire or colonialism. It’s more telling that the actual protests about the right to self-determination are being treated as a backdrop for a mass media drama of vested interests.

    In his work, Alex Goss (b. 1991, Houston, lives and works in New York City) witnesses the effects of machinery, technology, and infrastructure on bodies. Through the lens of sculptural production, Goss questions the path which technology today is taking in truly serving, with dignity and tenderness, the needs of all people. Taking on a technologically transgressive role, Goss’s sculptures aim to convey a sense of utopia through their craftsmanship, but ultimately are rendered dysfunctional. His recent senior thesis exhibition at Cooper Union, Build You Own and More (2014) presents scenarios that complicate the distinctions between censorship and autonomy. 

    Goss received his BFA from the Cooper Union School of Art where he was awarded Cooper Union’s Pietro & Alfrieda Montana Prize in Sculpture, and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture summer 2014. His work has been exhibited at the Contemporary Art Museum, Houston, TX; the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington D.C.; 99 Cent Plus, Brooklyn, NY; among others.

    You may not know the name Homer Laughlin, a china factory in Newell, W. Va., but you’ll likely recognize — or have eaten off of — its most famous product: brightly colored, informal pottery called Fiesta.

    While most of America’s china factories have closed, unable to compete with “made in China” or Japan or Mexico, Homer Laughlin, which set up shop on the banks of the Ohio River in 1873, is still going strong. It employs about 1,000 people.

    Linda Wertheimer takes us into the depths of the factory — which feels like a relic from a different time — to show us how Fiesta has kept this company going.
