Cybernetic Serendipity: A Documentation Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2016 23 Nov 2016 – 22 Jan 2017 Previously at the ICA - Exhibitions Cybernetic Serendipity Exhibition poster, Institute of Contemporary Art, 2 August – 20 October, 1968 © Cybernetic Serendipity 1stdibs Introspective Having long admired the elegant, layered interiors designed by New York decorator Frank de Biasi in Vogue and Architectural Digest, I was delighted to spend a week with him on a recent tour of Cuba that was organized as a benefit for Sir John Soane’s Museum of London. De Biasi was an ideal travel companion: an avid design historian and observant architecture buff, as well as smart, funny and full of the charm and good manners of his native Virginia. Before establishing his Manhattan design firm in 2006, de Biasi was the director of interiors for architect Peter Marino — and prior to that, he worked at Christie’s, starting in the mid-1980s. Today, when he isn’t traveling the world for clients, he splits his time among his homes in New York, Paris and Morocco.

Alone in the Virtual Museum One afternoon last June, while travelling in Naples, I went out wandering and found myself standing in the kind of vast cobblestone square that seems designed for a Fascist rally or the celebration of a royal birth. To my right stood a building that looked like a steroidal homage to the Pantheon; to my left, a long, squat loaf of a mansion that turned out to be the Palazzo Reale, the urban seat of the Bourbon monarchs during their rule, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. I bought a ticket, and found myself in an entrance hall of white, pink, and black marble, dominated by two cascading staircases leading away from one another and toward the vaulted, absinthe-colored ceiling far above.

Andy Goldsworthy - subtly beautiful environmental art Here in New York City, the weather is shifting from hot humid summer, to the cool crisp days of fall (my favorite time of year) and the seasonal cycle of nature prompted me to look at artists who work with natural elements. Born in 1956, Andy Goldsworthy is a British sculptor, photographer, and environmentalist living in Scotland who has created sublime and beautiful works of art made up of only natural materials. Most images below come from the Andy Goldsworthy Digital Catalogue at the University of Glasgow, Crichton Campus, Dumfries, which documents works created from 1976-1986. Andy gently shapes leaves, snow, ice, twigs, feathers, rocks, and other elements, and blurs the line between natural and man-made beauty. In a 2001 documentary directed by Thomas Riedelsheimer called Rivers and Tides, Goldsworthy discusses how working with nature roots him, and how time away from his work makes him feel rootless.

But now, the Volkswagen Kombi's epic journey has finally reached the end of the road. The iconic vehicle has succumbed to environmental legislation - meaning it will no longer be produced in Brazil, or anywhere else in the world.
