Google Celebrates the Bauhaus School’s 100th Anniversary with an Animated Doodle

Google has commemorated the 100th anniversary of the birth of the Bauhaus school with a nice animated doodle.

Jorge Luis Borges Draws a Self-Portrait After Going Blind

Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986), one of the great writers to come out of Argentina, went blind when he was  only 55 years old. As unsettling as it must have been, it wasn't particularly a surprise. He once told The New York Times, "I knew I would go blind, because my father, my paternal grandmother, my great-grandfather, they had all gone blind." In the years following that life-changing moment, Borges never learned braille and could no longer read. But he did continue to write; he served as the ...

‘No More All-White Seasons’ — Activists Slam One Of Philly’s Largest Nonprofit Theatres

“Titled ‘No More All-White Seasons,’ the [open letter on Facebook] praises the [Philadelphia Theatre Company’s] current 2018-19 season for its diversity — then condemns a lack of it in the theater’s upcoming 2019-20 season [of three plays]. In the process, it points to the sometimes acrimonious diversity debate underway at local and national theaters.” – The Philadelphia Inquirer

Instruments? Kinda Over 'Em. Dubler Transforms Your Voice into a Sound Studio.

Musicians Novelist and PREM using Dubler Studio Kit to make tracks based on vocal triggers and instrumentation. Musicians who can play two or more instruments and sub in for orchestral colleagues are sometimes called "doublers." They're flexible, they're fixers, and they're a big help when you're trying to bring a piece of music to life. George Wright's Dubler Studio Kit, for which he's raising funds on Kickstarter, aims to expand that ability to just about anyone, regardless of musical abili...

The Marvelous Illustration Work of Julio Cezar

The Marvelous Illustration Work of Julio Cezar PauloGabrielMar 21, 2019 One of the greatest things for me is to see a super talented artist being appreciated by tons of people.

Julio Cezar has the talent I wish I had... he comes up with marvelous illustrat...

Plastic waste has met its match with the viral #Trashtag challenge

But a new viral challenge has thousands of people from around the world coming together to clean up places that have become overrun with plastic. The new challenge, #trashtag, encourages people to clean up litter and share photos from before and after the clean-up job is over.

The Roman Roads of Spain & Portugal Visualized as a Subway Map: Ancient History Meets Modern Graphic Design

Between the first century BC and the fourth century AD, Rome displayed what we might call an impressive ambition. In his project illustrating those chapters of history in a way no one has before, statistics student Sasha Trubetskoy has shown increasingly Roman-grade ambitions himself, at least in the realm of historical graphic design. We've previously featured his modern subway-style maps of as well as  here on Open Culture. Today, we have , the region today occupied mainly by Spain and Po...

How do you design smartphones for teens?

There are some parents who believe in limiting their child’s access to sufficiently advanced tech. Technology empowers, but it also means a lot of things. You can lose your privacy, your data, end up on wrong parts of the internet, and just be exposed to something you’re not ready for. For teenagers, that can be a pretty damaging experience. Especially considering Facebook was actually caught paying teenagers to spy on them just a month ago. I don’t blame parents for wanting to be connected to t...

Bill Murray Explains How a 19th-Century Painting Saved His Life

You don't understand prewar 20th-century America unless you understand a particular 19th-century French painting: Jules Breton's The Song of the Lark. "In this evocative work, a young peasant woman stands silently in the flat fields of the artist's native Normandy as the sun rises, listening to the song of a distant lark," says a post from the Art Institute of Chicago. Apart from being selected as America's favorite painting in 1934, it was also Eleanor Roosevelt's favorite work of art, ...

Senator Elizabeth Warren Wants To Break Up Big Tech Companies, Including Apple

Wow. Senator Warren is dropping antitrust ideas as fast as, well, Facebook and Google and Amazon and Apple gobble up our time and privacy. After her Medium post didn’t mention Apple, Warren said she meant Apple as well, and she explained: “What was applied to railroad companies more than a hundred years ago, we need to now look at those tech platforms the same way.” – The Verge

The Next Big Tech Battle Will Be Between Apple And Facebook

And it will be about messaging. For more than a decade, they didn’t compete: “People bought iPhones, downloaded Facebook and Instagram, and spent large chunks of time on those social networks, while using Apple’s native apps for calling and texting. Facebook made money from the targeted ads in people’s feeds. Apple made money on the hardware, while its software kept users loyal.” – Slate

Design, meet music: gorgeous graphic scores from LETRA / TONE fest

Nine designers created graphics scores. Next, nine musicians will interpret them. LETRA / TONE festival is one of the more compelling experiments in festival programming – an adventure in crossing media. Here’s what it looks like. Now, in these here parts, we’ve been fans of visual-musical synesthesia, from live visuals and VJing to graphics. LETRA / TONE makes that connection in the score. Curator (and composer/musician) Hanno Leichtmann had the idea. Five years ago, I covered one of the earl...

Behold The Drawings of Franz Kafka (1907-1917)

Runner 1907-1908 UK-born, Chicago-based artist Philip Hartigan has posted a brief video piece about Franz Kafka’s drawings. Kafka, of course, wrote a body of work, mostly never published during his lifetime, that captured the absurdity and the loneliness of the newly emerging modern world: In The Metamorphosis, Gregor transforms overnight into a giant cockroach; in The Trial, Josef K. is charged with an undefined crime by a maddeningly inaccessible court. In story after story, Kafka showed his...

This Company Didn’t Fire Sergei Polunin For His Homophobic Post, But They Asked Him About It. And What Did He Tell Them?

In January, the ever-troubled ballet star caused another stir with some offensive (and incoherent) remarks on Facebook, and he was promptly let go from a guest spot with the Paris Opera Ballet. The Bavarian State Ballet kept him on (despite pushback) to star in Spartacus but asked for an explanation. He said “that he wanted to provoke people to raise awareness about the dangers of obesity.” – Deutsche Welle

Cool Stuff: Scott C’s ‘Back to the Future’-Inspired ‘Clock Tower Valley’ Print is His Best Work Yet – Enter to Win a Pin Pack

My favorite movie of all time is Back to the Future and one of my favorite artists of all time is Scott C –I probably have more of his prints on my walls than anyone else. So when I received an email from Scott asking for my advice on a Back to the Future-inspired painting he was doing, I freaked out. Heavy? Weight has nothing to do with it.

Social Platforms Want To Cut Down On Spreading Fake Conspiracy Theories. But There’s A Problem…

Part of the problem for platforms like YouTube and Facebook — which has also   to clean up misinformation that could lead to real-world harm — is that the definition of “harmful” misinformation is circular. There is no inherent reason that a video questioning the official 9/11 narrative is more dangerous than a video asserting the existence of U.F.O.s or Bigfoot. A conspiracy theory is harmful if it results in harm — at which point it’s often too late for platforms to act. – The New York Times...

Gustave Doré’s Haunting Illustrations of Dante’s Divine Comedy

Inferno, Canto X: Many artists have attempted to illustrate Dante Alighieri's epic poem the Divine Comedy, but none have made such an indelible stamp on our collective imagination as the Frenchman Gustave Doré. Doré was 23 years old in 1855, when he first decided to create a series of engravings for a deluxe edition of Dante's classic.  He was already the highest-paid illustrator in France, with popular editions of Rabelais and Balzac under his belt, but Doré was unable to convince his publishe...

CCAD Industrial Design Students Studying Effect of Technology on Mental Health
