The history of the paper clip: It was invented in 1899. It hasn’t been improved upon since Getty Images/BananaStock via Thinkstock. The paper clip is something of a fetish object in design circles. Its spare, machined aesthetic and its inexpensive ubiquity landed it a spot in MoMA’s 2004 show Humble Masterpieces. This was a pedestal too high for design critic Michael Bierut, who responded with an essay called “To Hell with the Simple Paper Clip.” He argued that designers praise supposedly unauthored objects like the paper clip because they’re loath to choose between giving publicity to a competitor and egotistically touting their own designs. Bierut might be right about his colleagues’ motives, but he’s wrong about the paper clip: It’s not all that simple.

An Introduction to 100 Important Paintings with Videos Created by Smarthistory If you have an interest in how the internet has widened the very concept of education, you may well know about Google's Art Project, a digital wealth of free visual art information and viewing opportunities we've featured before. And you more than likely know about Khan Academy, the highest-profile producer of educational videos on the internet. Now, from the combined power of their learning resources comes this collection of video introductions to over 100 important paintings. Ranging from between two to nine minutes and covering works of art created in eras from 575 B.C.E to the Second World War, these brief but intellectually dense and visually rich lessons bear the label of Smarthistory, "a multimedia web-book about art and art history" that merged with Khan Academy in 2011. Just above, we have Vincent van Gogh's 1889 The Bedroom, a painting that, in the words of the artist himself, "ought to rest the brain — or rather, the imagination." Related Content:

The toppling of statues is enriching not erasing history and it has thrilled my heart These are not debates, but facts. We don’t get to choose whether or not this happened; but we do get to choose whether or not we deny it. Or see it as somehow not significant.
