Float Through Time with Flyte’s New Magnetized Clock

The company’s latest design is an improvement to the wall clock, a work that uses powerful magnetism to move a hovering metal ball around STORY’s edge. The designed object was built with three modes. With the Journey setting, you can set your mechanism to a specific date, watching the magnetic ball travel along the circular piece of wood until the ball reaches an upcoming moment such as a vacation or birth of a child.

Selecting Clock allows you to use the object more like a traditional timepiece, and finally Timer acts as a short term countdown for kitchen prep or time out. STORY also features a shining digital display to add detail to your chosen setting, and is backlit to be seen in the dark. STORY was just launched on Kickstarter. Toronto Light Festival.

Michael Gaumnitz : Paul Klee The Silence of the Angel (2005) Paul Klee: Triumph of a 'degenerate' "I cannot be grasped in the here and now," the artist Paul Klee wrote as the first line of his own tombstone epitaph.

Paul Klee: Triumph of a 'degenerate'

Which in one sense is the opposite of the truth. There are few among the leading Modernist painters who are not more readily known than Klee, with his spindly lines and squared block colours, and even fewer who are more readily loved. Picasso and Matisse seize you with their vision, Klee has the knack of making you feel a partner in it. Click here or on 'view gallery' to see more of Klee's works on show at Tate Modern And yet there is something elusive, unknowable indeed, about his compositions, hovering as they do between natural observation and imagination, neither the one nor the other: "Somewhat closer to the heart/Of creation than usual/But far from close enough," as he puts it in the same epitaph.

Tate Modern clearly intends to change his standing if not his popularity with its autumn blockbuster devoted to his work. 30 Amazing Neon Light Typography Designs. Pattern in Islamic Art. James Gillray: The Art of Caricature. James Gillray (1756-1815) was the leading caricaturist of his time, an artist of outstanding inventiveness who continues to influence satirists today.

James Gillray: The Art of Caricature

Satire has often been seen as the disposable art of an urban, commercialised culture, one of the plethora of consumer goods which are continually outdated and replaced by new offerings. Graphic satire usually deals with fleeting events, so that its value as art, whether of the cartoons in our daily papers or 18th century caricatures, appears to last no longer than the topicality of its subject matter. Sir John Soane's Museum. A Rake’s Progress tells the story of the fictional Tom Rakewell in a series of eight paintings.

Sir John Soane's Museum

Tom inherits a fortune from his miserly father – but then follows a path to vice and destruction. Painted in 1733, it followed the hugely successful A Harlot's Progress (1730) – another ‘modern moral subject’ – which was sadly destroyed in a fire in 1755. The paintings were bought from William Beckford at a Christie’s auction in 1802. THE ARGUS PROJECT. AnnoTate. 48 great examples of doodle art. Doodling is a great, fun way of expressing yourself.

Purpose of the Contest The contest supports the atmosphere of discovery and wonder that nanoscience and nanotechnology research represent.

The first objective of this competition is for participants to have fun. The second objective is to promote the public interest and acceptance of nanos: people new to the subject really begin to understand it when they see compelling pictures. Many of the illustrations, models and nanoscopic images produced in researching nanoscale science are very artistic in nature, transcending basic illustration.

For nRai®, OCSiAl® and the Nanosciences Foundation, this contest is important to reward the hard work of non-Faculty researchers. Contest Guidelines and Rules This contest is open to all students and post-doctoral fellows. All work should be recent (completed within six months prior to submission) and original. Images shall be submitted via our online submission form, by the last Friday of each month.

Outsider art. The term outsider art was coined by art critic Roger Cardinal in 1972 as an English synonym for art brut (French: [aʁ bʁyt], "raw art" or "rough art"), a label created by French artist Jean Dubuffet to describe art created outside the boundaries of official culture; Dubuffet focused particularly on art by those on the outside of the established art scene, such as psychiatric hospital patients and children.[1][2] While Dubuffet's term is quite specific, the English term "outsider art" is often applied more broadly, to include certain self-taught or naïve art makers who were never institutionalized.

Typically, those labeled as outsider artists have little or no contact with the mainstream art world or art institutions. In many cases, their work is discovered only after their deaths. Often, outsider art illustrates extreme mental states, unconventional ideas, or elaborate fantasy worlds. I am looking for a place, for my mind. Frank Gehry : Architectural Digest.
