John Powers on Star Wars."Perhaps because of its fantastic nature, the Death Star has never been recognized as an essential work of minimalism - but it is one. Its destruction has never been acknowledged as a turning point for modernism - but it was one." Time for another entry devoted to a single article. Not only because, with "Star Wars: A New Heap, Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Death Star," John Powers once again draws provocative lines between a film and a parallel art world, but also because Triple Canopy's presentation of the piece rivals even the best print magazine design had to offer in its heyday. By the way, if you'll be in Brooklyn on Friday, you might want to know about Triple Canopy's evening at Starr Space.
