Losing myself: drawing dementia | Culture | Architects Journal
The research gathered by McLaughlin and Manolopoulou certainly gets under the skin of dementia, but in examining this medical condition, it has also opened a new way of thinking about the end user, by setting new limits, a new paradigm. Diagrams and pragmatic programmes of function, square meterage and construction are cast aside for a staged interaction; a collaboration of minds that considers the emotional consequences. It is not artificial.

When asked quite specifically to summarise the exhibit, McLaughlin and Manolopoulou describe it as a drawing, and the drawing quite simply ‘a way of being’. Perhaps this is a new paradigm; neurological, anthropological, theatrical – a counterpoint to the speed at which we now operate; our humanity positively reinstated into the wider debate about the relevance of architecture.

Design and Science
On Professor Neri Oxman’s Krebs Cycle of Creativity of the relationship between the disciplines, design and science are opposite one another on the circle, and the output of one is not the input of the other as is often the case of engineering and design or science and engineering. I believe that by making a “lens” and a fusion of design and science, we can fundamentally advance both. This connection includes both the science of design and the design of science, as well as the dynamic relationship between these two activities.

“Picasso: Guitars 1912-1914″ at MoMA | Tyler Green: Modern Art Notes | ARTINFO.com
Umland’s exhibition allies her approach with Clark’s and presents a narrative for us via the 85 artworks she presents. Her exhibition invites us to reconsider Picasso’s late cubism itself, particularly the questions: Why did Picasso started making guitars?, and Why does it matter if he was making guitars or something else?

I think the exhibition suggests that Picasso started making cubist guitars for two reasons: Picasso was responding to a particular moment in his relationship with cubist collaborator Georges Braque; and because guitars offered Picasso opportunities to explore cubist, visual and sexual puns, word-object-games that had become fundamental to his practice. I explore those two answers in:

This camera won't let you take cliche pictures (Tomorrow Daily 242) - CNET
f you've ever felt like you're seeing the same photos from tourist locations on Instagram, you might enjoy Camera Restricta. It's a camera designed to check how many photos have been publicly uploaded to the Internet and geotagged in the same place you're standing in. If the location is saturated with pictures, Camera Restricta retracts its shutter and won't let you snap a pic, forcing you to seek out more interesting, less common locations for your photos.

When You Point It At A Cliché, This Camera Censors Itself
Camera Restricta is a new kind of camera by German designer Phillipp Schmitt that aims to make you be more deliberate with your shots, whether you like it or not.

It's an app plus camera enclosure that knows where you are in the real world. When you try to take a picture, Camera Restricta uses GPS to identify where you are, and compare your location to other geotagged photos online within about a 115 square-foot-radius. If too many other people have taken a picture where you are, Camera Restricta won't let you make your shot. The camera features a really clever audio cue to signal to its owner that photos are restricted: like a geiger counter, a clicking sound indicates when a location is photographically radioactive. Then the lens retracts.

As a commentary on generic photography, Schmitt's camera explores what it means for the invisible algorithms in our digital cameras to actively work against us. "Algorithms are already looking through the viewfinder alongside with you: they adjust settings, scan faces, and take a photo when you smile," he says. "What if your grin wasn’t the only thing they cared about?"

Camera Restricta is also a comment on government censorship of photos. In July, the European Parliament voted on a controversial proposal that would have restricted the ability of tourists to take photographs of copyrighted buildings and sculptures, even in public places. The measure was defeated, but the point Schmitt is making with Camera Restricta is that if such a law were enacted, it could easily be implemented, just by a silent over-the-air update to your smartphone or tablet.

You can download the open-source app and check out Camera Restricta's project page here.

Analogue artists defying the digital age | Culture | The Guardian
For headphones while DJing I use a contraption I invented – the gramoscope – which is a stethoscope with the chest piece replaced with an ear trumpet. It enables me to hear clearly enough to beat-match. I've also used the gramophone to draw – I manually engrave the records with the record needle, to produce subtle, deep marks that echo the existing grooves.

Ursula K. Le Guin on Where Ideas Come From, the “Secret” of Great Writing, and the Trap of Marketing Your Work | Brain Pickings
The more I think about the word “idea,” the less idea I have what it means. … I think this is a kind of shorthand use of “idea” to stand for the complicated, obscure, un-understood process of the conception and formation of what is going to be a story when it gets written down. The process may not involve ideas in the sense of intelligible thoughts; it may well not even involve words. It may be a matter of mood, resonances, mental glimpses, voices, emotions, visions, dreams, anything. It is different in every writer, and in many of us it is different every time. It is extremely difficult to talk about, because we have very little terminology for such processes.

According to team titanic gallery, one hundred cameras will be built, and all will be released to the german public on 16 May 2014. Anyone who visits Friedelstrasse 29 in Neukölln that evening will have the opportunity to participate in the surveillance program, paying a 10€ deposit for one of the cameras. Participants will be free to hide their cameras anywhere in Berlin that they deem worthy of long-term clandestine observation, and they'll be expected to keep the location secret into old age. At that stage, the participant will reveal the location to a child, who in turn will be responsible for keeping the secret into adulthood, so that 100 years from now one person in the world will know where to retrieve each camera. Whoever brings a camera back to team titanic in 100 years will collect the 10€ deposit, and the 100-year photo will be extracted from the sealed pinhole canister for inclusion in a special team titanic exhibition. The exhibit is scheduled to open on 16 May 2114.

Mr. Keats does not plan to attend the 2114 event, as he'll be dead. "I don't regret it at all," he says. "For me, it's much more interesting to be here today, seeing the behavior of people who know they're being watched by the unborn, and also to be watched myself, living vicariously as a future memory of the 22nd century."

FRICKbits: your data is now art on your iphone by Laurie Frick — Kickstarter
Hidden patterns reveal something unusual about you

Many websites and fitness apps gather pedometer and location data, but the output has a cold, clinical feel of infographics. Coming from an artist this app is like hand crafted watercolor drawings and hopes to change the way you see data gathered about you. FRICKbits uses your location to draw patterns of where you travel in a city, or for that matter – anywhere on the globe. Location data is the easiest to understand, we tend to go the same places over and over. The repetition of travel patterns and stray movements will transform into an abstract data portrait of you.

This 98-Year-Old Man Spent 13 Years Creating Remarkable Art in MS Paint | Underwire | Wired.com
Hal Lasko may be 98 years old, but while many of his peers devote their leisure time to shuffleboard and bridge, he has a very different passion: creating huge works of art pixel by pixel in Microsoft Paint.

While most people have long since abandoned MS Paint as an outdated graphics application, Lasko has spent the last 13 years using the program to digitally create works of art, spending up to 10 hours a day on his work. Originally a traditional painter, he switched to MS Paint full-time in 2005 when his vision was impaired by wet macular degeneration, an eye disease that causes blindness in the center of his vision. He has since created more than 150 digital works, though his blindness means he will never be able to view them in their totality.

“When I started to go blind, I wasn’t able to get the brush quite where I wanted it,” Lasko told WIRED. “So when I got into the art program on the computer, I appreciated that I could blow it up eight hundred times [larger] and be sure that I was hitting the right spot.”

The bigger, the better – is that also true for cities?
Slinkachu answers: I started my little people project in 2006, leaving miniature figures around the streets of London to explore the way we interact with the city and the problems that living in a giant metropolis can cause. The loneliness of a modern city, that sense of being lost and overwhelmed, is definitely a theme of my work.

Over the past couple of years I have travelled to many other cities around the world, abandoning my little people on the way, and what struck me most is how similar modern cities are, no matter where they are or what their size. You can stand on the street corner of modern Beijing and if it weren’t for the signs, you could be in Moscow or London or Paris. And as cities become more similar and the world becomes smaller, our problems become the same too.

Paper Metropolis: An Interview With Kiel Johnson | Los Angeles, I'm Yours
Kiel Johnson is a maker. He’s an artist, yes, but he is a maker first. He’s hands on, he’s constructive, and he’s resourceful, pulling everything from scraps of paper to corrugated cardboard to use as his medium. The latter–cardboard–has become his trademark as he uses the material to erect very detailed cities, masks and objects. Recently this work has allowed him to be able to travel the world as he has been taken under the giant creative wing of TED, the now international idea spreading speaking and activity series. We met up with Kiel at his El Sereno workspace, which is referred to as Hyperbole Studios.

BBC News - David Hockney rebuffs 'greatest living artist' title
Hockney told the BBC he felt that landscapes had fallen out of favour in recent years.
The Arrival of Spring in Woldgate, East Yorkshire in 2011 (twenty eleven) by David Hockney One room in the Royal Academy exhibition is spring-themed

Artists have "given up drawing," he said, because "they think the photograph does it all".

But he said he would continue to draw because "I am depicting the world, or the way you see it.

"I've often said, photography doesn't do it that well," he added.

Speaking to the BBC's Arts Editor Will Gompertz, he also bemoaned the dominance of film in modern art.

"There are things you can't film," he noted. "The camera loves movement - smoke, fire, water.

"The consequence is you'll see more pictures of Rome burning and flooding than Rome being built because the camera likes it."

Edward Burra – review | Art and design | The Observer
The paintings (they are all works on paper) divide roughly in four: the early portraits of new immigrants, sailors, drinkers and prostitutes in London and New York; the macabre and surrealist paintings in which men wear terrifying bird masks and sinister events occur around every corner; the landscapes; and Burra's designs for theatre. A good place to start, though, is with The Straw Man (1963), a painting that Pallant House has on long-term loan, and around which, therefore, the exhibition could be said to have been built.

Sketching Out a New Course for Architects - WSJ.com
It's not that they hate modernity. But at the just-launched Beaux-Arts Atelier, the belief is that an architect should know how to draw buildings by hand—and the best way to do that is to study the classical forms. Having absorbed that technique, a broader spectrum of creativity is at the architect's command, even if he wants to create contemporary buildings that don't have a pediment in sight.

"If you don't understand the tradition profoundly, you can't turn it on its head," said the program's director, Richard Cameron.

The Dark Art of Pricing | Jessica Hische
You can learn a lot of the business end of design and illustration by trial and error and reading articles and books, but one thing that is seemingly impossible to get a grasp on is pricing. Whether you are a student, a young designer, or a seasoned pro, pricing jobs can be one of the most frustrating parts of the creative process. The cost of creative work is shrouded in mystery and very subjective. While it makes some people uncomfortable to talk about art and money together (as we all know creatives are really meant to suffer through life and die penniless), they are incredibly similar when you think about it. What is money other than dirty rectangles of pressed tree pulp? Because we all believe it has value it is valuable.

3-D experience is really UnReal
RealTime UnReal inserts viewers, one at a time, into a 3-D projection that reacts to the viewer's movements. The installation drew rave reviews and record crowds in New York, the only other place it has been seen - or rather, experienced. The technology was developed by Workspace Unlimited, a collective led by two Belgian-born artists who now live and work in Montreal.<br />
<br />
A large double-sided screen is suspended from the ceiling within an area enclosed by railings that seem to float within the darkened gallery. A soft electronic beat enhances the sci-fi setting. The gallery appears on the screen within a simulation of the museum's lobby. The visitor walks into the enclosure wearing 3-D glasses and is inserted into the scene by tracking cameras. The view on the screen changes as the visitor moves through the space. When the viewer passes near the edges of the screen, architectural elements are broken up and reassembled.

TheRecord - An idea takes shape in Waterloo
Before moving to Saskatoon, Lee and partner Paul Koopman, a Saskatoon native, worked with architectural and design practices in London, England. They moved to Saskatoon to set up a practice there after winning their first independent commission, a landmark piece called Prairie Wind that celebrated the 100th anniversary of the City of Saskatoon in 2006.<br />
<br />
This year is a transition year as Lee sets up her own practice in Toronto. She would like to create more opportunities for playfulness in her work, she says.<br />
<br />
“In an architectural office, immersed in serious projects, there isn’t time or space to play and explore,” she says. “But it’s part of a healthy practice, and a way of working.

Rhizomatic Art Stories - Balancing between Innovation and Usability | conference.archimuse.com
In 2008 SMK, the National Gallery of Denmark, initiated a 5-year digital strategy. A core project of this strategy is Art Stories: an innovative online resource that offers stories and background material about artworks, artists and how they connect. The ambition is to make art history come alive on the Web, utilizing the possibilities offered by digital media. Art Stories was developed over a three-year period in a highly iterative process. Our vision has been to create an 'art history on the terms of the Web' which implies structuring the content in a complex, 'rhizomatic' way. We have repeatedly invited users to discuss and test the concept, hoping to ensure an engaging and intuitively navigable online art experience. This paper goes through the process of developing the site in dialogue with users – but also sometimes against their immediate demands and expectations.

Morbid Anatomy: Italian Devil Automaton, 15th or 16th Century, From the Wunderkammer of Ludovico Settala
Automata were... theologically and culturally familiar, things with which one could be on easy terms. They were funny, sometimes bawdy, and they were everywhere... Mechanical devils were...rife. Poised in sacristies, they made horrible faces, howled and stuck out their tongues to instill fear in the hearts of sinners. The Satan-machines rolled their eyes and flailed their arms and wings; some even had moveable horns and crowns. A muscular, crank-operated devil with sharply pointed ears and wild eyes remains in residence at the Castello Sforzesco in Milan.<br />

Be Your Own Souvenir! on Vimeo
_This proposal aims to connect street users, arts and science, linking them to under-laying spaces and their own realities. The installation was enjoyed during two weekends in January 2011 by the tourists, neighbours of La Rambla and citizens of Barcelona, a city that faces a trade-off between identity and gentrification, economic sustainability and economic growth.<br />
_This shapes through a technological ritual where the audience is released from established roles in a perspective exchange: spectator-performer, artist-tourist, observer-object.<br />
_The user becomes the producer as well as the consumer through a system that invites him/her to perform as a human statue, with a free personal souvenir as a reward: a small figure of him/herself printed three-dimensionally from a volumetric reconstruction of the person generated by the use of three structured light scanners (kinect).

MICROMACHINA on the Behance Network
MICROMACHINA examines what makes the insect world tick, and considers our attempts to control nature and the consequences. Humanity’s blatant disregard for nature, where profit comes before life, will ultimately be our undoing. Pesticides, herbicides, genetic modification and massive urban expansion push the fine balance of life toward disaster. There has to be a point, when mother nature will say ‘too far’, and rid the earth of its biggest pest... us.<br />
<br />
Once the stuff of science fiction, today flying and crawling insects are used by the military, fitted with audio and video devices. This exhibition experiments using real taxidermy beetles as mechanised shells, to show how we mistreat our fellow inhabitants, forcing them to do our will.<br />

"The skin, a single tissue with localized concentrations, displays sensitivity. It shivers, expresses, breathes, listens, loves, and lets itself to be loved, receives, refuses, retreats, its hair stands on the end with horror, it is covered with fissures, rashes, and the wounds of the soul."1 -Michel Serres<br />

I lift up my shirt with my left hand and carefully touch my lower abdomen with my right hand. My right ring finger delicately runs over a few raised bumps on the right side, directly over the appendix. I look down and count the bumps. Seven raised scars from shingles I had at the age of sixteen. It was a turbulent time. My skin had spoken out about the inner distress. My third year in boarding school, I would often sit in a dark dorm room and silently cry and scream until I felt I didn't exist anymore. No one listened. The language barrier was aggravating. It was a rigorous regimen for a maladjusted teenager. The sensation of my finger touching the scar

Clearly, the answer to all those questions is yes, and people like James Turrell and M.C. Escher have offered years of proof of that.

Health Care Fine Art: Newmat Stretch Ceiling Systems
Recently some designers from Chicago asked me to provide artwork for 6 very large back-lit panels in a Radiology suite. The unusual thing about the project was that the images will be seamless and elliptical rather than small rectangular ceiling grids. The fabricator is NewMat Stretch Systems. I learned from their website (www.newmatusa.com) that they use a flexible PVC material, custom cut and surrounded by a welded, semi-rigid "harpoon".

The man with 230 turntables | The Audiophiliac - CNET News
When Theo Braakman was 12 years old, he got a turntable "just to demolish," but he was so fascinated by the machine's inner workings he spared the turntable's life. He put a mirror under it to get a better view of the automatic record changing mechanism's gears, belts, and levers that lifted the tonearm and the end of a record side, moved the arm to the rest position, dropped another record to play, and gently lowered the "needle" into the grooves. Braakman played records on that first turntable until he fully understood how the mechanism worked. But that just led to more turntables!

Drawing on the iPad, a Brushes & Sketchbook Pro Walkthrough | today in art
After getting an iPad, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Brushes and Sketchbook Pro. Both of these apps are really nice on the iPod and iPhone, but I had not taken to them like I had hoped. I found that the screen size was crippling for me and this was too great a hurdle for me to overcome. The iPad is a much better tool for drawing since the size is closer to the size of a sketch book. The iPad also has more room to include app menus and options.

More from Eyjafjallajokull - The Big Picture - Boston.com
As ash from Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano continued to keep European airspace shut down over the weekend, affecting millions of travelers around the world, some government agencies and airlines clashed over the flight bans. Some restricted airspace is now beginning to open up and some limited flights are being allowed now as airlines are pushing for the ability to judge safety conditions for themselves. The volcano continues to rumble and hurl ash skyward, if at a slightly diminished rate now, as the dispersing ash plume has dropped closer to the ground, and the World Health Organization has issued a health warning to Europeans with respiratory conditions. Collected here are some images from Iceland over the past few days.
