Pre-Raphaelite painter Edward Burne-Jones, who went on to be a major figure in style known as Aestheticism, presents a tableau of female figures, some staring at their reflections in the mirror of a still pond, others looking at the striking figure in blue, whose gaze falls on the pool but not on her own reflection. The artist has left it to us to interpret the differe...

It comes with features packed to give musicians an edge while they practice or perform, allowing their skills and sense of rhythm/tone to be heightened.Like most smartwatches (or even smartphones) that take external products/experiences and internalize them – case in point, the Apple watch now serving as an ECG – the Soundbrenner does the...

What if two car companies merged their design styles?

We’ve looked at a lot of design-semantic switches where we imagine one company designing a product out of their usual catalog (but with their design style)… cases in point, a lot of PDF Haus’s work.Today we look at a design-language-fusion, if you will. Created by rendering firm NeoMam Studios, this series looks at cars that are a result of two companies coming together to fuse their styles. You’ve got a BMW + Lamborghini mashup right above that combines the Italian supercar manufacturer’s edgy ...

When she reports to work Jan. 28, Ceruti will become only the sixth director of the Walker since 1940, and the third consecutive woman, succeeding Olga Viso, who resigned amid turbulence after the Scaffold controversy.”

Leveraging Vocal Volume to Increase Authority

Early in my presentation career, I was working with a coach to help hone my craft and take my speaking abilities to the next level. After one of my presentations, I sat down with my coach to review a recording of the presentation. About half way through the session, my coach shut off the computer monitor, and we spent the next 15 minutes just listening to my presentation. As we were listening, he asked me, “If all your audience had was the audio of your speech, do you think you would have engage...

The results are breathtaking.

Working with architect Joe Simmons of BlueSky Studio, Foster created the design and worked ...

How Science Is Using The Arts To Communicate

Those who fund science research increasingly expect the public to be fully engaged with the scientific process.

Why We’re Still Talking About Andy Warhol

Warhol didn’t make a mark on American culture. He became the instrument with which American culture designated itself. He was sincere. He could get away with practically anything because practically nobody believed in his sincerity: people haplessly projected cynicism onto his forthright will to surprise and beguile. The secret to his majesty is that he was a square citizen, untroubled by ambivalence and having no use for irony.

Roger Penrose’s Crackpot Theory Of Consciousness

He believes we must go beyond neuroscience and into the mysterious world of quantum mechanics to explain our rich mental life. No one quite knows what to make of this theory, developed with the American anesthesiologist Stuart Hameroff, but conventional wisdom goes something like this: Their theory is almost certainly wrong, but since Penrose is so brilliant (“One of the very few people I’ve met in my life who, without reservation, I call a genius,” physicist Lee Smolin has said), we’d be foolis...
