Je Suis Mon Rêve A series of photographs displaying supermarket products divided per color. Per Color is a project realized during my residency at JACA, in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. I see the supermarket space as a space of manipulation. The attempt, in this action, is to subvert this structure of power. The pictures have been taken in collaboration with Photographer Pedro Motta, in a supermarket in the same neighbourhood of the art center.

Trim Slice: a $250 Tegra 2 dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 PC – Computer Chips & Hardware Technology New paltforms like Nvidia’s Tegra 2 are allowing for some very powerful tablets to appear on the market, usually running the Android OS. But Compulab has decided to use Nvidia’s platform to create a tiny, feature-packed desktop PC instead. The Trim Slice is the smallest nettop I believe I have ever seen measuring just 130 x 95 x 15mm. It’s also possibly going to be the first consumer desktop PC available based on an ARM rather than an Intel chip solution. At its heart is a Cortex-A9 dual-core processor (Tegra 2) running at 1GHz coupled with an integrated GeForce GPU, 1GB RAM and a 32GB SSD. Although tiny, the machine has an abundance of I/O and sports 2 HDMI ports, Gigabit Ethernet, 4 YSB ports, SPDIF, setero audio output, WiFi, Bluetooth, an SD card clot, RF232 serial port, and a micro-USB port.

Urban Intervention: A Reclaimed Parking Spot Since we’re on the subject of grass today, check out Green Corner, a collaboration between Helsinki-based artists Otto Karvonen and Jon Irigoyen. Described as an “urban intervention” the idea was fairly straightforward: install a grass turf lawn in a parking space creating a temporary park that calls into question the ideas of ownership and use in public spaces. Green corner is a spatial artwork consisting of lawn that is installed on a parking space. The lawn is equipped with some comfortable garden furniture, to provide a relaxing break in the middle of the hectic urban space. The work raises questions about public space in general; to whom it belongs and what can be done with it.

Medieval Torture Long before the French Revolutionaries adopted the execution device known as a Guillotine, a similar device was in use in Halifax in Yorkshire. Halifax had held the right to execute criminals since 1280. Although there is early reference to a gibbet, including a report that the first person to be beheaded by it was John of Dalton in 1286, formal records of victims did not begin until 1541, when the town acquired a fixed machine which used a heavy, axe-shaped iron blade dropping from a height of several feet to cut off the head of the condemned criminal. Between 1541 and 1650, official records show that 53 men and women were executed by the Halifax Gibbet. The Gibbet was taken down in 1650 after the execution of Anthony Mitchell and John Wilkinson, but a replica was erected in 1974 on the original site at Gibbet Street. The Gibbet could be operated by either cutting the rope holding up the blade or by pulling out a pin which prevented it falling.
