Hearst Tower

On Friday I had the opportunity to tour Hearst Tower with Hearst Senior V.P. for Integrated Media, Jeff Hamill. Hearst Tower is Norman Foster's magnificent creation on 57th & 8th Avenue in NYC and is the new home to the Hearst Corporation. Foster preserved six stories of Joseph Urban's original Hearst Building to serve as a base for his new tower design. Using the original building's outer structure creates a wonderful open atrium at the base of the new Hearst Tower. Hearst T

Josh Keyes. Artist.

Whe I first saw artworks by American artist Josh Keyes I was attracted to his composition style that fuses urband everyday items with nature. It was an ackwardly perfect match. Many of then featured animal in a surealist environment and unlikely pairing, bold and beautifully executed. Thank you to Josh for answering the questions. Q. It seems that all your paintings are mix between urban and nature. What are the massages that you like to convey? A. Environmental awareness and the common spa

Pequeños mundos de Jeremy Mora

El letrero pone: “Things are gonna change“. Teniendo en cuenta lo que pasa esta noche, espero que esa frase sea premonitoria. Aunque, visto lo visto, no creo que cambie para bien… En fin, échale un vistazo a los pequeños mundos creados por Jeremy Mora. Poesía en formato comprimido. PD: Cómo no sólo de pan vive el hombre, el sr. Mora le pega también a otras cosas. Por ejemplo, al lápiz, los collages, la sinhueso… Un, dos, tres, responda otra vez.

7th Hiroshima Art Prize: Cai Guo-Qiang

Wed, 2008-10-29 05:17
From Bonny Cassidy ... In his series of photographed process works, The Century with Mushroom Clouds (1996), New-York based Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang summons the horror of the nuclear cloud, but to what effect? Photographed in various “test sites”, Cai’s cloud (produced by gunpowder rather than atomic fission) is no longer sublimely fearsome but reduced and therefore impotent. In the image from Nevada, for instance – a location that invokes Land Art works of the sixties and seventi

Online Social Shaming: Twitter Users Now Trolling #lift08

Fri, 2008-10-24 22:04
Last year Kim Zetter wrote several smart articles about how outrage toward Lori Drew soon turned into out-of-control social shaming, after her name was released on the internet following the suicide of her neighbor, 13 year old Megan Meier. Drew created a fake Myspace boyfriend who “broke up” with Meier over email just days before she hung herself.: Experts say the firestorm that followed illustrates what happens when the social imperative to punish those in a community who violate social n

Domani viene ufficialmente annunciata “The Power 100” ovvero la lista dei 100 nomi più potenti dell’arte secondo la rivista ArtReview, che compila la classifica da sette anni. Il Telegraph ne anticipa i risultati che vedono Damien Hirst (sesto nel 2007) dominare su Larry Gagosian (2), Kathy Halbreich (3) e Sir Nicholas Serota (4). Questo come risultato dei lavori svolti e del prestigio accumulato negli ultimi 12 mesi, che per Hirst vuol dire la mossa coraggiosa intrapresa con Sotheby’s, seg
