ToyStory films is the mortality of toys , a theme even more apparent in ToyStory 3 , in which the toys fears that their playmate will abandon them are personified in the character of an embittered stuf fed bear, who claims that toys are just trash waiting to be thrown away Nothing suggests this possibility of death more than the toys being at the mercy of their human playmates, since whenever they are with people the toys must play dead.This dual obsession with animation and mortality chimes with many of the analyses of animation included in two essay collections edited by AlanCholodenko, named and s words,

untitled artscape International Osamu Ishiyama (1944-), an outsider architect who tends to work for outsider clients (the disabled, the deviant, the disenfranchised), is an exemplary member of the so-called "Red School" of Japanese architecture. A classification championed by historian Terunobu Fujimori, himself a high-profile Red School dilettante, the Red School is the subversive alternative to the more mainstream White School -- the former defined as visceral, warm, heavy, thick, rough, handmade, the latter as cerebral, cool, light, sharp, transparent, machined. The distinction isn't always easy to make: a slight shift of viewpoint places Tadao Ando's geometrical compositions of raw concrete in either camp (Fujimori calls him "pink"), and since the turn of the millennium Toyo Ito seems to have abandoned purest White for a trajectory through ever-deepening Red. Ishiyama was a student of Takamasa Yoshizaka, a professor at Waseda University who worked for Le Corbusier during the early 1950s.

Origines Comment “imager” le son? Comment passer du sonore au visible sans appauvrir ces deux expériences perceptives? Le vivant comme interface perceptive Le vivant peut-être considéré l’interface privilégiée d’une rencontre son/image. En modifiant les propriétés du milieu dans lesquels ils sont émis, les ultra-sons permettent à certaines espèces marines de communiquer et de se situer dans l’espace.
