Excerpts:

“Never knew love like this beforeBaby what about you? Bits of your life, bits of my life slip sliding away satellite of loveEven when you’re far away you send me telepathic loveEscape hatch turn on computer loveWhen can I see you? We belong together in electric dreamsWhen a man loves a woman things can only get betterHow deep is your love? Would you lay with me in a field of stone?”

“Sunshine of your love funeral in the rain tonight was a disasterHere I go again down to my last teardropElevator Papa, switchboard mama blue and broken heartedit must’ve been love.”

“In a more recent example, Lan Tuazon showed a work at the “Summer Mixtape” show at Exit Art that consisted of months of labor. The artist solicited friends to send mp3’s of their favorite love songs, chose 365 of them, and gradually compiled snippets of lyrics into a single, vastly footnoted text that even broke sub-genres of the love song down (and color-coded them). The end result was hilarious and familiar, the excess of labor standing in for love itself (be it of another person, or just good love songs).”          – by Daniel Quiles. Read full text on art:21.
