Cinemagraphs are still images that contain within themselves living elements allowing a glimpse of time to be experienced and preserved. Cinemagraph is a technique of blending the effects of images and videos. It was introduced by a New York fashion photographer Jamie Beck, in collaboration with motion graphics designer Kevin Burg.

Evolution du contrepoint (partie III) : L’école franco-flamande et l’émergence du sentiment harmonique [Le Mensuel de Polyphonies n°56 - Juillet 2011] partie I : de l’organum au motet médiéval partie II : de de l’isorythmie au canon. partie III : L’école franco-flamande et l’émergence du sentiment harmonique Nous voilà au XVe siècle. Jusque là, la dissonance est traitée avec une certaine approximation. Apportant une plus grande souplesse dans la mélodie et dans le rythme, les musiciens anglais généralisent le contrepoint imitatif en reprenant un même motif mélodique successivement aux autres voix. Tout en affinant le goût de la consonance, l’élaboration de ces techniques contrapuntiques autorise une démultiplication des voix, qui atteint des sommets : trente six dans Le Deo Gratias d’Ockeghem (1430 †1495 ou 1496), et même quarante voix dans l’admirable Spem in alium de Tallis (1505 † 1585) ! La disposition des voix se précise pour s’adapter aux nouvelles contraintes sonores et acoustiques qui résultent de cette démultiplication des parties vocales. cantus (ex déchant) qui deviendra le soprano ténor qui deviendra notre ténor

Cinemagraph: 28 Still Photos With Subtle Motion So today we’re going to showcase animated GIF artwork but there are not the regular GIF we use on websites.

To Connect With Consumers, Ditch The Focus Groups. Try Acting Instead Some months ago, I wrote an article here where I claimed that market research data is overrated, especially when it comes to innovative products and services. An innovation is new and original, so by definition, it departs from users’ experiences and behavior. Consequently, it is hard to establish quantitatively how to market it. Unfortunately, I didn’t offer up any viable alternative methods to surveys and focus groups. I believe one of the most powerful methods for synching up your brand with the zeitgeist, or people’s unrealized wants and needs, is by tapping into good old-fashioned empathy. So what is empathy, and why does it matter? Well, according to the dictionary in my Mac, it is “the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.” So if we can feel what they feel, then logically we can react to new information and stimuli, i.e., branded products and services, in their emotional shoes as well. How do you do it? Courage First Empathy, then go Alpha

10 Amazing Slow Motion Videos of Everyday Things We live in a fast-paced world. Maybe that's why slow motion videos are so appealing to us.

Giacometti, le descendant des Etrusques Quand il s’installe à Paris pour continuer ses études artistiques, Alberto Giacometti est déjà peintre et sculpteur. A l’académie de la Grande Chaumière, à Montparnasse, il devient l’élève de Bourdelle. Pour donner de la matière à son regard, il va tous les dimanches au musée du Louvre. Et lorsque ce musée organise une grande exposition sur les Etrusques en 1955, Giacometti commence à se détourner du cubisme de ses débuts pour plonger dans l’univers artistique de ce peuple de l’Antiquité. Les Etrusques ne vont plus quitter le sculpteur suisse. L'Ombre du Soir pour la première fois hors d'Italie Le clou de l’exposition parisienne est la présentation de L’Ombre du Soir, un bronze étrusque de 57 centimètres de haut réalisé 350 ans avant Jésus-Christ. Dans l’une des vitrines de l’exposition, trois statuettes de même taille cultivent la correspondance entre le travail de l’artiste suisse et celui des Etrusques.

Logogrammes (et perception) Il est deux manières de visiter l’exposition des Logogrammes de Christian Dotremont à Pompidou jusqu’au 2 janvier, deux rythmes qu’il faut alterner. D’abord errer dans les salles comme dans un paysage blanc, lumineux, étendue neigeuse sur laquelle s’inscrivent des signes, des traits, des courbes noires : sont-ce des sillons, des arbres, des traces de vie ? On passe insensiblement, dès la première salle, du paysage dépouillé à l’écriture, les arbres deviennent des lettres, on ne sait quoi déchiffrer, hésitant entre idéogramme, cunéiforme, coufique ou arabe cursif : motifs abstraits, certes, mais aussi signifiants, puis que Dotremont ‘écrit’ un texte de la sorte, qu’il répète très lisiblement au crayon en bas de sa feuille, et que le cartel reprend une troisième fois. son compatriote Henry Michaux (car Dotremont écrit un texte, d’un coup, d’un jet qui peut évoquer l’Action painting par sa brusquerie, sa sauvagerie, mais sans s’abstraire du sens, à la différence de Michaux).
