SHIZUKA YOKOMIZO, DEAR STRANGER… Posted on November 16, 2012 by Isabella Cecconi Dear Stranger, I am an artist working on a photographic project which involves people I do not know…I would like to take a photograph of you standing in your front room from the street in the evening. A camera will be set outside the window on the street. If you do not mind being photographed, please stand in the room and look into the camera through the window for 10 minutes on __-__-__ (date and time)…I will take your picture and then leave…we will remain strangers to each other…If you do not want to get involved, please simply draw your curtains to show your refusal…I really hope to see you from the window. The amazing Shizuka Yokomizo’s photo project, came from running around London with huge telephoto lens, trying to glimpse unsuspecting people through the windows of their flats. Shizuka Yokomizo, Japanese by birth, photographer by choice, has been living in London for more than 15 years.
Celebration: The town that Disney built Celebration was intended to be a carefully-planned haven for the wholesome family values for which Disney likes to be known. In many ways a throwback to simpler times, it was designed to have a vibrant downtown core which encouraged walking rather than driving, and no mega-malls on the outskirts. While Disney controlled all aspects of construction they were careful not to make the town part of their brand. This means that you won’t see Mickey Mouse ears anywhere. However a number of residential ‘villages’ surround the downtown area featuring public buildings with somewhat whimsical designs created by prominent architects. Philip Johnson’s Town Hall is perhaps the most unusual – crowded pillars being a very postmodern take on the imposing columns often used in such buildings.

MEMORYSCAPES investigates how memory and reality affect one another, through notions of architecture and related mental images, resulting in a complex body of work that includes immersive audio installations, multimedia documentation, and cutting-edge holographic technology. In 2013 I started looking for Italians living in New York City who would allow me to interview them; specifically ones who expressed an emotional link to the city of Venice.

BACK TO THE FUTURE : Irina Werning - Photographer I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… Two years ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.. Now its time for KOREA, TAIWAN AND TOKYO.
DADAMETER - Christophe Bruno (2002 - 2008) Imagine a world of transparency where all desires are negotiated on a global market and their risks are evaluated and optimized. The Dadameter is a tool for the profiling of language at large scale and the historical tracking of artistic and literary movements. It brings about a new alliance between art, science and global finance. We use up-to-date 2.0 trend analysis and data visualization technologies, neural networks, graph theory or quantitative structural linguistics in order to be able to predict the next artistic craze. Our starting point is twofold: 1) the work of Raymond Roussel, considered as a precursor of Dada 2) the recent transmutation of language into a global market ruled by Google et al. Raymond Roussel - In 1912, Marcel Duchamp and Francis Picabia attend Roussel's theater play Impressions d'Afrique whose scandal anticipates the future Dada performances.

Nobuhiro Nakanishi｜中西信洋 The Stripe Drawings are composed of an infinite number of lines drawn in pencil. Drawing these lines at set intervals creates gaps in between, deliberately leaving empty spaces. These lines and spaces create shapes that seem to encroach upon each other, yet co-exist harmoniously. My goal is to depict landscapes where contours, spatial distances and physical boundaries dissolve, like the infinitesimal world we see through the microscope, an imaginary galaxy in a faraway universe, or a landscape steeped in fog. LOTTE REIMANN* texts Fast cars, sex and violence, or how I’ve been inspired by "Crash" I guess in my personal lexicon of meaning the car is least of all a means of transportation. I have always been much more attracted by the strength that a car embodies, its speed and danger, the power of these machines. Metal, steel, glass, leather, plastic, oil, and dirt – all agglomerated into one piece, which encloses me – blasting with tremendous speed through the landscape, is hugely exciting, arousing. Equally fascinating are the violent traces remaining of a collision on organic and inorganic material. Scars and bruises, blood, chipped varnish and sharp bumps, broken glass, splinters.
What Does the Western Look Like? — The Outtake I watched 50 westerns and compressed them into single frames of form and light. Not too long ago, I watched 50 westerns. The montage above represents 16 of them.
