Bauhaus at 100: the revolutionary movement's enduring appeal

Sleek, pared-back, industrial elegance – that’s how most of us think of Bauhaus, the modernist design group born in Germany in 1919. But that was only one side of this short-lived but longlasting movement…• Norman Foster, Margaret Howell, Michael Craig-Martin and others on Bauhaus’s rich legacyThe Bauhaus, simply put, was a German school of art and design that opened in 1919 and closed in 1933. It was also very much more than that. It was the most influential and famous design school that has ev...

Milan art tour: fresco heaven, without the crowds

Resist the urge to splurge in the city’s chic shops and instead lose yourself in its transcendental artThink of Milan and you think of fashion. The first time I spent more than a few hours in the city, I roamed the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II – Italy’s oldest shopping arcade, built in the 1860s and still home to the original Prada store, which was opened by the designer’s grandfather Mario in 1913 – wishing that I was rich (or at least, not quite so broke). What on earth is a girl with an over...

STONEHENGE AQUA HOTPRESS

I bought a block of Stonehenge Aqua Hotpress after seeing a lot of work from an artist who uses it well.  I'm not usually a fan of hotpress paper so we'll see.  I want something that gives me interesting texture without being a fussy as Yupo and something that's still paper.  This might be it! I like the texture it gives me and the way the paint doesn't soak in and can be pushed around.  I can also lift out a little and reshape areas after it's dried.   Interesting so far... And...

Twitter Link Roundup #355 – Terrific Reads for Small Business, Entrepreneurs, Marketers, and Designers!

By now, the entire Netflix indulging world has heard of the diminutive-yet-formidable Mari Kondo. The tidying-up mania is literally and figuratively sweeping the nation as overwhelmed homeowners seek to create a little breathing room for themselves. The premise itself is a good one – a minimalist attitude toward stuff is healthy, and there’s something to be said for living with less. However, hidden beneath those shiny plastic bags stuffed with unused junk lurks an ugly reality. Each one of tho...

Japan’s arty-pelago: Naoshima and beyond

Among shrines, rice fields and abandoned buildings, contemporary art has transformed 12 rural islands into a creative paradise – the setting for the 2019 Setouchi TriennaleI’m sitting on a concrete floor watching water droplets as they skitter across the smooth surface. Around me, other people seem equally transfixed. They stand in silent contemplation staring at beads of water bubbling up from tiny holes in the floor, or lie gazing at the vast domed roof, where two oval openings let natural lig...

Konstantin Grcic and Aeance Designed the Ultimate Industrial Designer Starter Pack

What would a clothing collection based on the principles of good industrial design look like? That's what esteemed industrial designer Konstantin Grcic set out to discover during his collaboration with performance sportswear brand Aeance.  The result? It's sleek. It's minimal. It's tailored. It's functional. It's sophisticated. It's made from mostly recycled textiles. It's almost meme-worthy how spot on Grcic portrays the elevated aesthetic every industrial designer aspires to achieve in orde...

Color as a Factor in Enhancing Student Learning

Everything is associated with a particular color. For painters, marketing professionals, and designers, it is vital to use various color shades to achieve business success. But very few know that color can affect learning abilities as well. Most educators admit that colorful desks and chairs along with glowing bulletin boards can turn a faded classroom into a bright place that holds students' attention. Colors do more than just animate a surrounding environment. They are so powerful that if use...

Generational Change: Regional Theatre Pioneer Emily Mann Leaves McCarter

Mann didn’t just lead Princeton’s $23 million theatre from a respected regional outpost to a Tony-winning incubator of new work and new talent. While there she also built on an already ground-breaking career as a documentary-play creator and feminist director to create signature American works as Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters’ First 100 Years. Her stamp is on not only generations of theatre artists but creative administrators as well. – American Theatre

The Mister Rogers Phenomenon

How Performing Arts Centers Are Evolving For The 21st Century

‘We really see that we have a role in creating pathways for creative people who are local and who are in the community to create work, have their ideas and get their work onto a stage – pathways for their work to find its way out into the wider world. And then the other way is pathways into this region, bringing work from the rest of the world to Geelong to keep us excited about what the arts are. That’s one of the ways that we’re starting to think about it for ourselves.’ – ArtsHub

Boogie Fever: The Dance Plagues Of Medieval Europe

A widespread belief of the 15th century held that the bite of a tarantula could only be treated by wild, mad dancing; groups of people would be possessed by a compulsion to dance, and towns would pay musicians to play for the sufferers. (Hence the dance called the tarantella.) “In fact, mass epidemics of dancing have afflicted various parts of Europe since the seventh century, breaking out particularly in times of famine, disease, and political unrest.” — JSTOR Daily

Seeds on the moon started to sprout for the first time but quickly died

China has taken a major step toward long-term space exploration. Earlier this month, the Chinese moon probe Chang’e 4 carried a container with cotton, mustard and potato seeds, yeast and fruit fly eggs to the moon’s far side (facing away from Earth), and early this week, the China National Space Administration said that those seeds started to sprout. Unfortunately, temperatures dropped and killed the plants. According to the BBC, the project was designed by 28 Chinese universities, and the expe...
