Pick Up This Stunning ‘Parks and Recreation’ Print to Support LA Firefighters

It’s been a few years since Parks and Recreation came a close, leaving the Pawnee National Park in the fully capable hands of none other than Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman). And if you’ve been hoping to commemorate that beautiful moment when the government naysayer finally got his dream job in his hometown, then we have good news. Shortly after Parks and Recreation came to an end, artist Mark Englert teamed up with Bottleneck Gallery to release a limited edition poster celebrating Pawnee National ...

We’re Less Free, Less Creative When Someone Is Watching Us

We know that surveillance has a chilling effect on freedom. People change their behavior when they live their lives under surveillance. They are less likely to speak freely and act individually. They self-censor. They become conformist. This is obviously true for government surveillance, but is true for corporate surveillance as well. We simply aren’t as willing to be our individual selves when others are watching.

The Makerphone: From Consumer Electronics to Creator Electronics!

The phone has gotten sufficiently advanced enough for us to know practically nothing about how it functions. In the olden days, if a toaster or radio broke, we opened it up, tinkered with it, fixed it, and put it back together. We still do that with cars today… but the smartphone, the smartphone has too many functions, too advanced technologies, and relies on a multitude of parts to function. Albert Gajšak wants that to change.With the Right To Repair finally kicking off, and consumers finally...

Practice Makes Perfect: 3 Steps to Practicing Your Presentation

Everyone knows the age-old mantra that “practice makes perfect,” but given my experience as a high school tennis coach, I believe this statement is not always the most accurate. Instead, I think a more realistic statement is “practice makes permanent.” You can practice over and over again, but if you are not practicing the right way, you can end up emphasizing bad habits and creating difficult patterns to break. Practicing using the wrong form can be even more detrimental than not practicing at ...

Nick Cave Interviewed in The Guardian

The Guardian has an interview this week with artist Nick Cave, as he opens a commanding show of new work and reflects on the violent landscape of modern America, and how work like his Soundsuits address some of these issues. “You are liberated: it hides gender, race, class – so you’re forced to look at something without judgment,” […]

Effective and Efficient Hydration with Liquid I.V.

Osmotic science allows for optimum hydration Whether it’s after a long flight, workout, or big night, our bodies oftentimes need hydration. By enlisting the help of decades-old science led by the World Health Organization, Liquid I.V. hydrates (whether you’re active or sedentary) more effectively and efficiently than water alone.

Long Lodge is an elegant and sustainable mass timber retreat proposal in the woods

Mass timber construction is growing more popular thanks to efforts like the 2018 Maine Mass Timber Competition, which has prompted elegant and sustainable wood-based designs such as “Long Lodge,” a design concept that won a 2018 Honor Award. Proposed for a specific north-facing property along the Appalachian Trail, the building consists of two wings — one for living and the other for sleeping — joined by a central void that frames views of the “Caribou Pond Trail” that connects to the main trai...

Nationalism Is Rearing Up Again And It Needs Hate To Survive. How To Transcend It?

If the cosmopolitan world we unsteadily inhabit is to survive, Hegelian logic would seem to demand that it find itself a new “other”—something which the nations of the world can only face, as they once faced the threat of perpetual conflict, as a cosmopolitan community, in which the self-consuming monster of national sovereignty would, once again, be laid to rest. Climate change, perhaps?

What The Brexit Deal Would Mean For The Arts

May’s deal, which was revealed on November 14, essentially maintains the status quo until 2020, with the deal “not saying anything concrete” about what will happen after this. This would be effectively “postponing a leap into the dark” for the creative industries until 2020, with “all the important issues left up in the air”.

100 Years Later: Debussy’s Legacy

The better we get to know Debussy, the stronger the contrast between the richness of his musical world and the sordidness of his personal life—and yet, in both music and life, he liked things to be beautiful, rich, and sensually pleasing, and he wanted these things without having to work too hard or too regularly. (Debussy admits that he suffered from a “sickness of delay…and this curious need to never finish” his pieces.)

The Things You Find Behind Doors, Like A Velazquez

In recent days, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston has rehung a painting called Kitchen Maid (c. 1620) with a new label, “attributed to Velazquez.” The work used to hang in its decorative arts mansion, Rienzi, partially blocked by a door! At that point, it was labeled “in the style of Diego Velázquez.”

Ford Foundation Uses Its Building To Help Reinvent The 21st Century Foundation

After half a century, the building remained a gem but needed an upgrade. City officials gave the foundation until 2019 to remove asbestos, fix the sprinklers and make the site wheelchair accessible. The foundation’s president, Darren Walker, saw the opportunity to nudge the headquarters, in other ways as well, into the 21st century. And so Ford has now downsized its footprint, making room for other foundations. There’s a new public art gallery, a touch-and-feel garden in the atrium for the blind...
