10 Contemporary embroidery artists

But over the last few years, a new generation of textile and mixed media artists (of all ages I might add) have been using both machine and hand stitch to challenge these preconceptions; they often honour traditional techniques but use them in combination with more contemporary mediums or methods to create artwork that is original and refreshing.

The Music Box Gets An Update For The Digital Era

Open one, and you'll usually see a metal barrel with raised bumps, turning round and round to pick away at the musical teeth of a comb. Captivating as music boxes are, though, there's no way to compose music on a music box: it only plays it back. The XOXX Composer is a music box for the digital age. Designed by Swedish interactive designer Axel Bluhme, the XOXX Composer uses the basic principle of a music box—a rotating cylinder with bumps that plays notes—and transforms it into an instrument any aspiring DJ can use to mix new tracks. A traditional music box has one rotating cylinder. SOURCE01. Dart 339. What does Second Skin mean?

Dart 339

- It is an instrument that reflects from the outside what is inside. An external layer that expresses our inner emotions, feelings and desires.- On the opposite, a second skin could be a cover, some kind of mask that would allow us to hide our emotions and provide us with an external appearance that does not reflect our real self (for example insects that changes patterns to hide from its enemies)- A way to apply new forms of meaning and connotations to a surface on object - A protection, security- An apparel that would give us superior abilities regarding to our strength, physiognomy, senses, etc.- A reflection of our social status, our belonging to a certain society, class or genre.

A cultural identity. Craft. The role of craft in contemporary society continues to be of interest.

San Jose, California, can boast of having produced more patents than other U.S. city, according to U.S. census figures — not surprising given its stature as the unofficial capital of Silicon Valley.

Art (& Technology) Talk with Kerry Adams Hapner

What may be surprising, however, is that the city also holds a soft spot for art. In fact, it even has the distinction of housing the largest collection of Ludwig van Beethoven artifacts outside of Europe, thanks to the Ira F. Brilliant Center for Beethoven Studies. Given that creativity is at the heart of both the arts and technology, it makes sense that the arts would flourish amidst the landscape of labs and tech centers. With a diverse population of more than one million, many of whom are foreign-born technology workers, San Jose is home to the headquarters of tech giants such as Adobe and eBay. On arts and technology partnerships in San Jose: Within Silicon Valley, we have an interesting place where we have a very high percentage of the population that works within the tech sector.

Mikala Dwyer, Square Cloud Compound

This is her second solo show with the gallery, and follows on from major installations at this year’s Sydney and Adelaide Biennales. For several years now, Dwyer has been interested in the occult, creating pieces in which, for example, palm readers ply their trade, or circles of strange objects become loaded with witchy resonance. The current installation raises her interest in magic and parallel worlds to new levels.

Her ‘cool’, linear thread installations, which often function more as forms of architectonic drawing than sculptural works, have become her signature style. It is this component of her practice that featured in the Museum of Contemporary Art’s ‘Primavera’ exhibition of 2004 with the work Synthetic Infinite and that is on permanent display in the Brisbane Magistrates Court building as part of the commissioned public art program there. A Neuroscientist's Radical Theory of How Networks Become Conscious. It’s a question that’s perplexed philosophers for centuries and scientists for decades: Where does consciousness come from?

A Neuroscientist's Radical Theory of How Networks Become Conscious

We know it exists, at least in ourselves. But how it arises from chemistry and electricity in our brains is an unsolved mystery. Neuroscientist Christof Koch, chief scientific officer at the Allen Institute for Brain Science, thinks he might know the answer. According to Koch, consciousness arises within any sufficiently complex, information-processing system.
