Bruegel « robotchao Recently I stumbled onto the artwork of Pieter Bruegel the Elder. I dunno. I think this might be one of the most beautiful illustrations I’ve ever seen. If anyone has a hi-res pic of this, I’d love to use it to make a print. As for Bruegel, he was a Dutch or Flemish painter and printmaker who lived from 1525-1569. I’m not usually as taken with 16th century art as I am with more contemporary artists; I generally prefer the likes of Sol Lewitt, Franz Kline and Basquiat over, say, Quentin Massys. I mean, c’mon.

PostSecret Louis Kahn From 1957 until his death, he was a professor of architecture at the School of Design at the University of Pennsylvania. Kahn created a style that was monumental and monolithic; his heavy buildings do not hide their weight, their materials, or the way they are assembled. Louis Kahn's works are considered as monumental beyond modernism. Famous for his meticulously built works, his provocative unbuilt proposals, and his teaching, Kahn was one of the most influential architects of the 20th century. He was awarded the AIA Gold Medal and the RIBA Gold Medal. At the time of this death he was considered by some as "America's foremost living architect Biography[edit] Early life[edit] Jesse Oser House, Elkins Park, Pennsylvania (1940) Louis Kahn, whose original name was Itze-Leib (Leiser-Itze) Schmuilowsky (Schmalowski), was born into a poor Jewish family in Pärnu,[citation needed] Estonia and spent his early childhood in Kuressaare on the island of Saaremaa.

L’accent est toujours mise sur la scène devant. Voilà pour la leçon no. 1 : comment tenir une caméra. Pas facile, n’est-ce pas ? 5 mars 2012 C’est confirmé par une source d’information sûre : Poutine est de retour au Kremlin, par Vladimir Poutine, envoyé spécial de CNN à l’occasion de la présidentielle russe à Moscou. Bon d’accord, ce Poutine, il est un peu jeune mais d’une ressemblance presque parfaite. 4 mars 2012 C’est la personne humaine, libre et créatrice qui façonne le beau et le sublime, alors que les masses restent entraînées dans une ronde infernale d’imbécillité et d’abrutissement. Qui a dit une chose avec une telle acuité? Le bon peuple ne vit pas de politique. Faites vos jeux; Les jeux sont faits; rien ne va plus! 2 mars 2012 Un sourire d’enfant et dix pieds… une photo de Nimai Chandra Ghosh.

Maartje Dros Public Space Research and Design home : ismaïl bahri Synth-ethic: Art and Synthetic Biology Exhibition — Vienna, Austria Tuur van Balen Pigeon d’Or Pigeon d’Or proposes the use of pigeons as a platform and interface for synthetic biology in an urban environment. Tuur van Balen’s project attempts to make them defecate soap! By modifying the metabolism of bacteria naturally occurring in the gut of pigeons, synthetic biology allows to add new functionality to animals commonly seen as vermin and “flying rats,” turning them into tools for urban disinfection. In collaboration with James Chappell, the artist has designed a special bacteria that, when fed to pigeons, turns their faeces into a biological window soap. This both micro and macro scale art project addresses the ethical, political, environmental and safety-related consequences of synthetic biology. Van Balen has designed two functional objects: The first one is an architectural contraption by which pigeons potentially become part of the museum space.

Archive | Marcel Broodthaers Marcel Broodthaers Milton Keynes Gallery, Milton Keynes, UK The first substantial British showing of Marcel Broodthaers’ art since the Tate Gallery retrospective in 1980 begins near the end: L’Entrée de l’exposition (Exhibition Entrance, 1974), 21 potted Kentia palms that turn the Milton Keynes Gallery’s foyer incongruously tropical, dates from two years before the Belgian artist succumbed to liver disease on his 52nd birthday. The exhibition waits until midway to reprise the inception of this brief, influential, still intractable artistic career: Pense-Bête (Reminder, 1964), a vitrine containing 44 books of Broodthaers’ poems turned unreadable, devalued and revalued, by their embedding in plaster. And it ends, superbly, with a conflux of seven works from the middle six years of his activity. Naturally aided by his scattered physical legacy, there’s something mysterious, apparition-like, about Broodthaers’ art that asks to be protected. Martin Herbert
