In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention. This time we look at Viktoria Sorochinski, Jean-Luc Feixa, basICColor Display 6, external drives, virtual highlights for May and a photo at Kent State.

  • Inside Out presents the images 2017 LOBA finalist Viktoria Sorochinski has been working on during the quarantine. "I like to use symbols that have a universal meaning, because due to my immigrant background I am always searching for a kind of 'universal language' through my imagery, that can connect and speak to people regardless of their cultural or religious belonging," she says.
  • Kadish Morris showcases Strange Scenes in Belgian Windows captured by Brussels-based photographer Jean-Luc Feixa over four years.
  • Mark Segal reviews basICColor Display 6 monitor profiling software.
  • Derrick Story reviews the $165 Crucial 1-TB X8 External SSD, which he finds "much faster than an external HDD (much faster!)." Compare to a 2-TB WD Passport drive for under $70 if you don't need or can use the speed.
  • Hannah Abel-Hirsch and Marigold Warner offer some Virtual Highlights, a selection of online exhibitions, talks and fairs to attend this month.
  • Fifty years ago today John Paul Filo took a photo of 14-year-old Mary Ann Vecchio screaming over the body of 20-year-old Kent State student Jeffrey Miller after being shot by the Ohio National Guard during a protest against the U.S. invasion of Cambodia during the Vietnam War. Richard Perloff tells the story in Four Students Were Killed in Ohio America Was Never the Same and in How the Kent State Massacre Marked the Start of America's Polarization, Christ McGreal presents more images of that seminal day from other sources.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
