Miksimum

is the index page for Jesse Miksic,
a digital dilettante dayjobbing as a UX designer

Loyally feeding the following beasts:

(follow and/or friend me -- if you appear to be a real person capable of passing the human tests, I will probably reciprocate)

General

  • @miksimum on Twitter A random sampling of thoughts and anxieties and signal-boosts and self-promotion.
  • Email me One of many ways of getting in touch, and the one I'm least likely to neglect for long periods.
  • Verbal

  • Benefit of the Doubt My outlet for Media Theory, also used to track other sources
  • @Miksimum on Medium Home to more politics and theory writing, plus reposts from Benefit of the Doubt
  • Berfrois.com A great site that kindly publishes my more polished critical writings
  • 366 Weird Movies An awesome site where I'm an on-and-off contributor
  • Goodreads My book reviews are long enough that I consider this an official creative outlet
  • Visual

  • @miksimum Tumblr Reposting all my visual art from Tumblr
  • @miksimum Instagram Visual art, plus occasional snapshots
  • Symbot on Flickr Digital photography, a hobby on temporary haitus
  • Overheated Media My short video work, on extended haitus since 2012
  • Recent Output

    Aggregated from Benefit of the Doubt and Tumblr, which gives the best representative sample of work in multiple media, I think

    Font like fountain

    When was the last time something stopped you in your tracks and really asked you to give an account of yourself? Not just the passing glance of self-consciousness, the polite stumbling curb of social stigma and embarrassment, but like, a real solid wall? A wall that said, “before you go on, you will have to pass through me”?

    Mt. Airy Village
    Just things that caught my eye

    Maybe the late 20th century aesthetic (70’s grime and glamour, 80’s decadence) will be immortalized as a cultural reference point, because that’s what got caught in the first wave of endless hi-def appropriation… the permanent fetish of digital nostalgia

    Myrtle Beach
    June 2021

    Brought here by the saline
    Convective tempers of a dim
    And anonymous ocean

    Am I made of surf
    And salt and that tidal
    Breathing noise?

    Hotel as ghost of a discarded dream. Light, many times displaced, diffusing through the window glass. Grainy photos of aviators in training, cadets looking dutifully at ailerons, mounted on wall panels in long tungsten-lit hallways. Late night tonight, dwelling and listening.
