סבבה בבסיס הסורי 45 שנה לאחר כיבוש/שחרור הגולן התקיים בסוף השבוע אירוע אמנות ראשון מסוגו, בלוקיישן שונה מהמקובל: בסיס סורי נטוש. המיקום מרוחק מלב הסצינה של האמנות הישראלית: לצד כביש 98 בצפון רמת הגולן, כמה מאות מטרים מהגבול ומהעיר הסורית הנטושה קוניטרה. לכאן, אל מבנה המפקדה המרכזי שאירח לראשונה בתולדותיו תערוכות אמנות עכשווית, הוזמנו 17 אמנים כדי להשתתף באירוע "צבעי בסיס", ולהציג בו אמנות רחוב ישראלית לצד עבודות צילום. מבני הבטון המרכיבים את המחנה מעוצבים באופן מאופק, כיאות למבנים צבאיים: קווים ישרים, פתחים מלבניים המודגשים הודות למדף הצללה קטן מבטון, תקרות גבוהות המתחלקות באמצעות קורות בטון בולטות. המבנים בני קומה אחת ואינם מעוטרים, והשמירה הקפדנית על הסימטריה של חלוקת המסות והפתחים במבנים הופכים אותם לרשמיים, וגם למרשימים, אם גם צנועים. מבנה המפקדה, שבו נערכה התערוכה המרכזית, מכיל שתי זרועות רחבות ואגף מרכזי בולט מהחזית, שאליו נכנסים במדרגות דרך פתח רחב הקבוע במרכזו. אמן הגרפיטי עדי סנד הציג את דמויות " הקופסונים ", שאותן פיזר ברחבי המבנה. יש מה לאכול?

NYC’s Day and Night Within A Single Photo Artist Stephen Wilkes created this cool artwork called Day to Night – splitting the landscapes from AM to PM in the same photo! So how Stephen did it? by kepping his camera at a fixed angle for up to 15 hours, then weaved and blended the shots into one frame. “Day to Night embodies a combination of my favorite things to photograph; people on the street melded with epic cityscapes, and the fleeting moments throughout the day and night,” [Via] Times Square Coney Island The Highline, NYC Central Park, NYC Park Avenue, NYC Washington Square Park, NYC Gramercy Park, NYC

The Peaceful Gun Rack Organiser Stuart Fingerhut is a Los Angeles based designer who came up with this non-violent gun. It’s actually a wall mounted gun rack organiser specifically created to hold your keys, mail and so on in your foyer. What could be more peaceful than a gun that doesn’t fire, has a flock of birds and a little girl swinging on the barrel? He designed it to be a functional art piece. The gun rack organizer is laser cut from 1/4″ acrylic and can be arranged such that there is more shelf space or to sit closer or further from the wall. You can purchase it either black or white for $100 from the designer’s Etsy Store. – Via

pureevilgallery PURE EVIL , Charles Edwards, s’inscrit dans un mouvement artistique en plein essor, le Street Art, datant de la dernière décennie, à Londres et à New-York. Il fait fleurir des visuels sur les murs de Londres qui dépassent bientôt le simple graff identitaire pour intégrer une attitude, un aboutissement et un questionnement post wharolien et dadaïste. La particularité artistique de PURE EVIL est de combiner, non sans humour, une Amérique des années 50 sous le prisme et la griffe d’une signature toute britannique. Pure Evil is one of the key british artist of this booming international scene : the Street Art.

Less is the New More: Making the Most of Small Spaces : TreeHugger - StumbleUpon Good Design For Living in Small ApartmentsAs people migrate to smaller spaces, good design helps a lot. This is something they figured out in Europe long ago, that if you don't have a lot of horizontal room you can go vertical. Tumidei in Italy makes some of the nicest stuff, like this unit with lots of storage under the bed. This unit just raises the floor high enough for beds to slide under. This one looks a bit clinical, but has two single beds plus a pull-out double bed in between. None of this stuff is cheap, nor, as far as I can tell is it available in North America, but there are ideas here that demonstrate how people can share a space and still get a little privacy, a good place to work and a lot of storage in a very small envelope.
