Associated with The Pictures Generation that emerged in the 1980s, James Casebere is known for his constructed photographs that explore aspects of private, public, and historical architectural space. For the past 30 years, he has created complex tabletop models of plaster, Styrofoam, and cardboard in his studio before carefully lighting and photographing his assemblages. Casebere’s subjects have included prisons, slavery-era cotton mills, and, in the series “Landscape with Houses” (2009-2011), American ideas of home, via a re-creation of an upstate New York subdivision.

Unlike a rusting highway bridge, digital infrastructure does not betray the effects of age. And, unlike roads and bridges, large portions of the software infrastructure of the Internet are built and maintained by volunteers, who get little reward when their code works well but are blamed, and sometimes savagely derided, when it fails. To some degree, this is beginning to change: venture-capital firms have made substantial investments in code-infrastructure projects, like GitHub and the Node Package Manager. But money and support still tend to flow to the newest and sexiest projects, while boring but essential elements like OpenSSL limp along as volunteer efforts. It’s easy to take open-source software for granted, and to forget that the Internet we use every day depends in part on the freely donated work of thousands of programmers. If open-source software is at the heart of the Internet, then we might need to examine it from time to time to make sure it’s not bleeding.

I could probably live at the seattle (central) public library. It’s incredible.
