Prada (Foundation)’s New Clothes

Wed, 2008-11-26 16:04

Celebration x3

I used to be a bit of a culture vulture - went to concerts, museums and galleries, the opera and dance (modern, traditional ballet sort of bores me) – and most of the time, I went either with my mother or Ken. It was our "thing" and I have a lot of good memories connected to those outings. Like the time when mor - if you're new around here, that's the Danish for mom - and I were almost thrown out of the opera because we couldn't stop giggling at a particularly ridiculous performance. The time K

Beautiful and not in New York

Sun, 2008-11-23 22:13
We dithered and waffled on what to see in our day trip to New York last week finally settling on shows in Chelsea and Soho and work we thought talked to our concerns about beauty in contemporary art. Beauty is back of course, that's nothing any observer of the scene has missed by now, with gorgeous public art by Anish Kapoor and the embrace of beauty in even the most tetchy conceptual realms (Kara Walker). But is it "beauty" or beauty? Something wry and ironic or a new push to aesthetic pleas

Ya se ha empezado a construir en Nueva York (56 Leonard Street, Tribeca) el primer rascacielos de Herzog & De Meuron, y este es el vídeo promocional que Tronic Studio ha creado de dicha torre, un trabao de integración perfecta con la ciudad, y con cierta historia para explicar su concepto. Una vez más el trabajo audiovisual desborda a lo que representa. Es una idea de módulos apilados que dan como resultado un volumen irregular con muchos espacios en voladizo, nada habitual en la tipolog

Travel Memoirs - July 26, 2008: Chicago

Mon, 2008-11-17 16:23
After the Book Arts Coterie (July 20th-25th) was over, I decided to take the optional excursion into Chicago. I have been to Chicago several times, and yet, there were so many things that I have never seen or noticed before. After our breakfast at Pam's house, we hopped into a car and went to the East Chicago station. This place has a large commuter parking lot which I'm sure it was pretty full during the week. But, there were plenty of spaces when we got there Saturday morning. After we found o

Herzog & de Meuron Teams with Tronic for Flashy 56 Leonard Preview

Fri, 2008-11-14 17:07
We've been around the block a few times and seen our fair share of architectural animations, but this one seems particularly cool. The mega-firm Herzog & de Meuron hired the mega-motion graphics company Tronic to put together the film below to show off their new building, 56 Leonard Street, in New York. It's a whole slew of great eye candy. Our only question is why they decided to inflict great pain onto Chicago's Millennium Park "Bean" sculpture along the way. What did its shiny metallic self
