Christopher L. Cook"You can do a lot of interesting things with fuck all,” says the Scottish artist Kevin Harman when I arrive in Mount Vernon, New York, to see him at work on his piece Skip 16 (2018), a sculptural installation made from materials found in an industrial dumpster, or “lugger”, as they are known in the US disposal industry. The work is among a series created by the Edinburgh-based artist since 2006, usually on site, wherever he finds an appropriate skip. This time, the sculpture has been transported to Randall’s Island, where it takes up most of Ingleby Gallery’s stand at Frieze New York. To meet Harman last week, I took the 5 train to the end of the line and then walked 25 minutes into Westchester, just north of the Bronx. I passed innumerable auto shops, a massive street-salt pile and Saint Paul’s Church, a national historic site that was used as a British Army hospital during the Revolutionary War. (The church tower’s bell, which still hangs there today, was cast in the same foundry as Philadelphia’s Liberty Bell and was buried by the parishioners to stop the British from melting it down for ammunition.)I eventually found Harman on a side street, standing next to the skip, assessing the cubic sc...

And as state Sen. Vernon Sykes, a black Akron Democrat, observed, SJR 5 also would give Republicans a lever to try to split Democrats based on race by allowing - at least as the state legislature currently is constituted - a redistricting plan to pass with only the votes of Democrats of color. "It divides the minority party along racial lines -- it's distasteful," Sykes said on cleveland.com.Ohio Republicans propose changes to congressional redistricting; Democrats say it won't end gerrymanderingThird, SJR 5 would make it easier for the GOP to dilute Democratic voting strength. That's because the proposal would permit populous (i.e., typically Democratic) Ohio counties to be more readily split among congressional districts than less populous counties, thus dividing Democrats and making it easier for Republicans to win.The fourth piece of cynicism: GOP lawmakers are moving at breakneck speed because they want to get their redistricting proposal on the May primary ballot to try to keep a competing citizen-initiated idea from prevailing. Should voters approve the GOP "reform" in May, that might put the kibosh on the far more credible Fair Districts = Fair Elections citizen redistricting reform that's likely headed for November's ballot.Currently, the General Assembly redraws congressional districts after each federal census. This redistricting plan, or remap, is written as a bill, which m... (cleveland.com)
