In 1997 Constantin and Laurene Boym did not expect the unprecedented emotional demand that the Souvenirs for the End of the Century series would generate. The plan was to make limited-edition runs of commemorative miniatures that would be available annually until 2000. It's now 2008 and they've just released their newest addition - the Golden Mosque in Samarra. "The war in Iraq prompted me to make the Golden Mosque in Samarra, the most notable architectural victim of sectarian violence there.
: It has been a big shift, but it has been a gradual one. Each of my first three major works – Die Vier Hoeke and Umjiegwana, Beaufort West, and Ponte City – gradually developed my understanding of both the mechanics of making ‘documentary’ images and my own internal relationship to the work. Retinal Shift then became the body of work where I really pulled everything apart and rearticulated my relationship to image making.
Surface is a contradiction. An object's face, it simultaneously hides and reveals. Surface encapsulates the rhetorical question of whether true beauty comes from within or is only skin deep, a dimension of our psyche that separates the shared reality from the subconscious. Surface interfaces between what we see and what we feel, increasingly flattened by screens.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
