Tyl Destoop

Originally from Belgium, Tyl Destoop is a watercolor painter living in the Normandy region of France. Destoop has a pleasantly free rendering style, matched with solid draftsmanship and compositional skills. I particularly enjoy his urban scenes. His website offers a selection of his paintings, most of which are available for purchase. You can find more on his pages on SaatchiArt and FineArtAmerica. Destoop’s YouTube channel offers a number of demonstration and process videos.

Should Foundations Spend Down Their Assets To Truly Make A Difference?

By 2030, if only the 5 largest foundations spent down the entirety of their assets, approximately $73 billion would flow directly to large-scale issues that require only cash to be truly solved. Even if only half of that were to boost US issues, $36.5 billion in ten years might solve food insecurity. It might provide responsible housing for those who fight for it. – LinkedIn

Why We’re Drawn To Stories About Monsters

Loving monsters is a love of chaos, a longing to dance a little with death to better understand the danger. Cryptid violence is more approachable than human violence. It’s easy to ponder ways to control something that is other, a thing. We’ve built entire political and economic structures based upon just that—imperialism, colonialism, racism, sexism. It’s more difficult to figure out how to survive the things we do to ourselves. – LitHub

Maybe We Need To Expand Notions Of What Creativity Is

Imagine instead that we worked with idea that creativity wasn’t about novelty. That doesn’t mean we’d have to give up the value of originality entirely, but rather see it as one of a range of possible outcomes. Casting a wider net in this way might hence make creativity (whatever it involves) easier to achieve. – Psyche

How The Classical Music System Conspires Against Minority Participation

White people and some ethnic groups follow a progression of youth orchestras and schools of the arts and then are often paired with principal musicians in local professional orchestras. Meanwhile, young Black musicians inevitably draw attention to their raw talent but can’t afford the coaching and mentoring to help develop technical expertise and to help direct the way through the audition maze. Having little or no experience in a youth orchestra, they arrive in college music departments with, ...

The Venice Film Festival Is About To Open. Will It Be Safe?

Ahead of the event guests have been sent a list of Covid-19 guidelines, including information on passing through thermo-scanners as they enter the festival and anyone found to have a body temperature of 37.5°C or higher will be denied access. The guidance also states that face coverings must be worn at all times, including in outdoor areas. It is not clear how that rule will be enforced, or whether attendees will be allowed to eat or drink while in screenings. – The Guardian

When Merce Cunningham Collaborated With A Computer Program

No, it wasn’t to generate random patterns of movement; rather the contrary, in fact. Ellen Jacobs, for years his company’s publicist, recounts how, at age 70, when his body could no longer demonstrate to his dancers everything he wanted, he began using a software program called LifeForms: “He carefully moved the limbs of these avatars — he called them Michelin men — joint by joint, in multiple directions, and wondrous new possibilities appeared.” – The New York Times

Small Theatres Are Innovating Online In Ways That Will Change The Art Form

Over the last few months, it has been interesting to watch how theatre navigates what, in many cases, is largely new territory: digital space.

New green technology could harvest body heat as energy

Scientists have created thermocells, energy-efficient devices, that can harvest excess heat and convert it into renewable energy. They hope to create portable batteries that could be applied to many types of surfaces to harvest excess heat — including clothing to utilize heat from the human body as energy. The group of 11 scientists who worked on this project published their study in the journal Renewable Energy. They are affiliated with The National University of Science and Technology in Mosco...
