Matthieu Gafsou 2Tout2Rien - insolite, art et autres The Book Surgeon (15 pieces) Using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Brian Dettmer carves one page at a time. Nothing inside the out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed. Dettmer manipulates the pages and spines to form the shape of his sculptures. "My work is a collaboration with the existing material and its past creators and the completed pieces expose new relationships of the book’s internal elements exactly where they have been since their original conception," he says. "The richness and depth of the book is universally respected yet often undiscovered as the monopoly of the form and relevance of the information fades over time. Dettmer is originally from Chicago, where he studied at Columbia College. Update: Read our exclusive interview with the Book Surgeon here. Brian Dettmer's website

Captured: The Ruins of Detroit Posted Feb 07, 2011 Share This Gallery inShare850 Up and down Detroit’s streets, buildings stand abandoned and in ruin. French photographers Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre set out to document the decline of an American city. From the photographers’ website: Ruins are the visible symbols and landmarks of our societies and their changes, small pieces of history in suspension. The state of ruin is essentially a temporary situation that happens at some point, the volatile result of change of era and the fall of empires. Photography appeared to us as a modest way to keep a little bit of this ephemeral state.

Dan Winters Photography A vue d'esprit du 04.06.2014 Selon elles, une économie basée sur une croissance illimitée, des politiques à court terme, des relations internationales conçues en termes de puissance et de concurrence, a conduit notre planète au bord du gouffre. Il est urgent de réintroduire des notions telles que la coopération, la solidarité et l’amour, dans toutes les sphères de décisions. Ceci d’autant plus que des modèles de fonctionnement basés sur ces valeurs humaines fondamentales ont démontré leur efficacité. La phase de test est passée, il faut à présent, selon de nombreux participants, mettre en œuvre ces nouveaux modes d’action à plus large échelle. Catherine Erard vous propose de rencontrer des participants à ce forum, actifs dans différents domaines, pour mieux comprendre ce que signifie dans le concret de leurs engagements, une action basée sur les valeurs humaines fondamentales. Valeurs et économie Peut-on penser l’économie en termes de valeurs humaines? Bibliographie

David Patchen - San Francisco, CA Artist - Sculptors About David David Patchen was born and raised in New York and studied at Pilchuck Glass School in Seattle, Washington. He describes glass as a seductive as well as challenging and particularly unforgiving medium. Its ability to hold elements in suspension, bend light, and layer color in three dimensions, not to mention its mallability in a liquid state, is what first attracted Patchen to glass. His latest work is an exploration of detailed patterns, colors and transparency, all created through multi-layered cane and murrine. Patchen is Chairman Emeritus of the Board of Directors at Public Glass and former member of the Glass Alliance of Northern California’s board of directors.
