editor's note

This week editor’s note is dedicated to one of our gurus: Hans Ulrich Obrist.

Obrist is artistic director at the Serpentine Galleries in London. 

One of the reasons why we like him so much is his Instagram Post-it project.

Obrist uses the virtual platform to post pictures of Post-in notes (and other bits of paper) which artists have inscribed with various sayings, quotes, and drawings. All important contemporary artists – from Marina Abramovic to Damien Hirst to Kanye West – have contributed with a note, and Obrist calls his incredible Instagram collection "The Art of Handwriting."
