Zedd, a major record producer and DJ (he’ll be at Coachella this year) had Miami artist, Dante Dentoni, create this amazing installation at his house – actually in the walls of his house. The recreation of the Vegas club he’s worked at is phenomenal. I stumbled across it on twitter – here’s a link. The video on twitter has gotten over 6MM views.
Jake Paul, brother of Logan Paul, also has a Dentoni installation at his house in Calabasas. You may have heard of him for recently being fired by Disney for being an idiot and a miscreant (all in the name of creating content).
Unfortunately, I can’t post an original youtube video of Dentoni’s Lego installations because youtube has classified me as a miscreant also. I’m currently on a 3 month probation for posting a nude image from a 2017 art fair in NYC (thanks to a sculpture by NYU MFA grad, Peter Clough).
While still on social media, I also want to comment on Instagram’s 20 most popular photos of all time:
- 17 of the 20 are from 2018 (says a lot about the platform’s growing popularity).
- 5 of the 20 belong to Kylie Jenner including the #1 favorite with over 18 million likes.
The world increasingly belongs to the social media star (just look at our President and the Democrat’s new socialist wunderkind, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who now has 1.6 million followers on Instagram (I believe she had 250 at the start of her campaign). She has more social media savvy than anybody else in Washington – which clearly is what got her a star appearance on 60 Minutes recently. More on this subject later this month.

So there you have it, the world does belong to the social media star (ideally with baby in tow or with some good congressional dance moves).
