Design Observer Observatory By Manuela AguirreDesign for Care: Innovating Healthcare Experience, is one of the first books fully dedicated to health care design and comes at a critical moment given the degree to which design is starting to be acknowledged as a legitimate profession within the context of health care institutions. Places Nicole Huber & Ralph Stern Born in Germany in 1945, just months after the end of World War II, the film director Wim Wenders sought to make sense of the "ruin landscapes" of the nation's cities through personal and professional exploration of the wide-open landscapes of the American West. By Owen Edwards The recent death of Italy’s Massimo Tamburini, at 70, from lung cancer, brought to an end the glittering career of perhaps the greatest motorcycle designer ever, but also — in my opinion — one of the greatest industrial designers of recent decades. Observer Media By Rick Poynor From 1967 to 1970, the British author J.G. By Hala Abdul Malak Hala A. OBlog Twelve people.

. : Yann Marussich - performances : . Description: Bleu Remix est la suite de Bleu provisoire crée en 2001, performance dans laquelle Yann Marussich laissait surgir de ses orifices, et suinter de son épiderme, des liquides biologiques teintés de bleu mettant en abîme les remous intérieurs de son corps. Le son original de Bleu Provisoire est retravaillé à chaque représentation dans Bleu Remix par un nouveau musicien local rendant cette performance à chaque fois unique. Dans Bleu Remix, le performeur vêtu d'un slip blanc est assis sur un siège dans une cage en verre transparente. Son corps est immobile, yeux clos, yeux ouverts. Pourquoi Yann Marussich choisit-il la couleur bleue ? Texte: Anne Rochat

PatternLanguage.com "The process itself is the actuality"Alfred North Whitehead There are no shortcuts to beautiful form. If you stand in front of the faucet of your kitchen sink and look at the beautiful shape of the drop of water you can realize that it forms slowly as gravity works on the tiny bit of water. You can not make that shape mechanically. A building, room, or doorway is the same. This is the essence of the process of unfolding: moving slowly step by step from a less to more differentiated space. It doesn't mean spending more time or money, just doing things in the right order.

Conway's Game of Life "Conway game" redirects here. For Conway's surreal number game theory, see surreal number. The Game of Life, also known simply as Life, is a cellular automaton devised by the British mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970.[1] The "game" is a zero-player game, meaning that its evolution is determined by its initial state, requiring no further input. Rules[edit] The universe of the Game of Life is an infinite two-dimensional orthogonal grid of square cells, each of which is in one of two possible states, alive or dead. Any live cell with fewer than two live neighbours dies, as if caused by under-population.Any live cell with two or three live neighbours lives on to the next generation.Any live cell with more than three live neighbours dies, as if by overcrowding.Any dead cell with exactly three live neighbours becomes a live cell, as if by reproduction. The initial pattern constitutes the seed of the system. Origins[edit] Examples of patterns[edit] Gosper glider gun Self-replication[edit]

EN IMAGES. Gif animé : l'attaque des clones "Gif project : Clones." C'est le titre qu'a donné l'artiste turc Erdal Inci à la fascinante série de gifs animés qu'il réalise dans les environs d'Istanbul, et qu'il expose le 30 mai à Naples. Par la magie de la postproduction vidéo, le jeune homme duplique l'image de lui-même marchant, courant, glissant ou sautant à l'intérieur de plans fixes. En résulte une séquence qui, une fois assemblée et convertie au format .gif, donne naissance à cette image d'un défilé de clones se répétant à l'infini. Sur certaines de ses images, le vidéaste mixe sa technique à celle du light painting, créant des effets de lumière mouvants à l'intérieur de scènes nocturnes (voir par ailleurs). Le travail d'Erdal Inci est visible sur son blog Tumblr, où les admirateurs de son travail ont la possibilité de faire un don.

EN IMAGES. Ces gifs vont vous donner le tournis "RRRRRRRROLL_gif". Sous ce nom à la consonance barbare, un collectif d'artistes diffuse sur le web d'étonnantes œuvres numériques. Chaque image animée résulte d'une série de photos assemblées en un seul fichier qui, format gif oblige, tourne en boucle. Sur le plan de la mise en scène, ces images contiennent un ou plusieurs éléments qui tournent sur eux-mêmes ou décrivent des rondes à l'infini – d'où la présence du mot "Roll", "roulement" en anglais. Cette utilisation originale du gif donne naissance à de drôles de visions, dans lesquelles la jeune femme photographiée se voit tantôt dotée de télékinésie (sa main semble faire tournoyer une pierre à distance), tantôt condamnée à d'absurdes circonvolutions, à la manière d'un automate. Des scènes magnifiées par une pleine maîtrise des cadrages et de la colorimétrie. Des membres du collectif "RRRRRRRROLL_gif", on ne sait pas grand-chose, relate le site "Colossal", puisque les quelques artistes qui le composent ont choisi de garder l'anonymat.

Japanese Artist Crafts Furniture That Looks Like Sketches What are these kids doing inside this drawing? A look from another angle reveals that something unusual is going on. It’s not the kids who’ve been flattened to 2D photographs of themselves, it’s the chairs that have been realized as three-dimensional models. These fully functional pieces of furniture, a 2013 thesis project called “Rough Sketch Products” realized by Tokyo University of the Arts student Daigo Fukawa, look like they leapt straight from a napkin – or even someone’s mind – into the three-dimensional world. Though we can’t say how comfortable the seats are (they appear to be made out of wire), the effect is both visually stunning and humorous. It takes very literally the sometimes authoritarian commands of a chicken-scratching designer to his or her more technically skilled underlings.

Whole Earth Catalog The first color image of Earth, a composite of images taken in 1967 by the ATS-3 satellite, was used as the cover image of Whole Earth Catalog's first edition. The Whole Earth Catalog (WEC) was an American counterculture magazine and product catalog published by Stewart Brand several times a year between 1968 and 1972, and occasionally thereafter, until 1998. The magazine featured essays and articles, but was primarily focused on product reviews. The editorial focus was on self-sufficiency, ecology, alternative education, "do it yourself" (DIY), and holism, and featured the slogan "access to tools". While WEC listed and reviewed a wide range of products (clothing, books, tools, machines, seeds, etc.), it did not sell any of the products directly. Instead, the vendor's contact information was listed alongside the item and its review. Origin[edit] The title Whole Earth Catalog came from a previous project by Stewart Brand. J. Organization[edit] From the opening page of the 1969 Catalog:

Notebooks of Lazarus Long from TIME ENOUGH FOR LOVE NY: G.P. Putnam's Sons (A Berkley Medallion Book), 1973 By: Robert Heinlein Fair Use The following "aphorisms" come from the "Notebooks of Lazarus Long" in Robert Heinlein's 1973 novel, Time Enough for Love. IntermissionSecond Intermission Intermission Excerpts from the notebooks of Lazarus Long Always store beer in a dark place. By the data to date, there is only one animal in the Galaxy dangerous to man--man himself. Men are more sentimental than women. Certainly the game is rigged. Any priest or shaman must be presumed guilty until proved innocent. Always listen to experts. Get a shot off fast. There is no conclusive evidence of life after death. If it can’t be expressed in figures, it is not science; it is opinion. It has long been known that one horse can run faster than another--but which one? A fake fortune teller can be tolerated. Delusions are often functional. Most “scientists” are bottle washers and button sorters. A motion to adjourn is always in order.
