NAME THAT MOVIE / book

April 11, 2012

Francis Ford Coppola once summed up film-making by saying, “A number of images put together a certain way become something quite above and beyond what any of them are individually.” Seems pretty simple, right?  After all, the definition of a motion picture is just a series of moving images recorded by camera. But in today’s high-tech world of 3D visual effects and CGI animation, it’s getting harder and harder to pinpoint those iconic images that differentiate one flick from the next. 

Such is the inspiration behind Name That Movie, a new coffee table book that turns classic movies into Pictionary-like puzzles. Illustrated by Paul Rogers, the book consists of 100 movie stumpers, including both classics and recent blockbuster hits. Using only a black pen and paper, Roger’s drawings boast a clean simplicity, yet still manage to accurately portray the critical visuals of each and every film.

And, don’t worry, there’s an answer key in the back.

NY just built an App for finding ART in the subway.

March 16, 2012

As NYC becomes increasingly in-tune with technological innovation and the startup scene, it’s becoming less and less surprising to see the city, even departments like the MTA, embracing all things tech. Just last week we saw NY taxi cabs outfitted with slick Square payment systems and iPads, and before that we noted the new initiatives to bring WiFi and cellular reception into our beloved, sticky and often uncomfortably humid subway stations.

Now, we’ve just heard wind that the MTA is working to bring a public art app to subway riders, showcasing the Arts for Transit program which has been active since 1985. You may not have known this, but NY’s subway system is quite the source of fine art. As Art Beat explains, “for many years the most underrated art museum in New York City has also, oddly, been the one with by far the most visitors, millions a day: the subway system.”

While I’ve kept an eye out and noticed some art being showcased in the city’s underground hollows, there’s never been a simple way to discover pieces all across New York.

To solve this problem, the MTA has been working with Meridian, a mobile software company based in Portland (not sure why a NY firm would’t suffice). According to the NY Times, the free app will be available soon “to serve as a guide to the 186 permanent works installed throughout the stations, and to a few dozen more in the Metro North and Long Island Rail Road systems.”

According to the Wall Street Journal, Meridian actually developed the app for free, and will split profits 50/50 with NYC if advertisements end up being included.

More, from the NY Times:

The app – which Sandra Bloodworth, the director of MTA Arts for Transit, says is still a work in progress – provides information either by subway line or by artist, from the abstract painter Al Held to the author and illustrator Yumi Heo, with Roy Lichtenstein, Elizabeth Murray and Sol Lewitt in between. The app also provides detailed maps of some of the larger stations and guided turn-by-turn tours, along with short video and audio pieces about artists and their work. (It can be synced before descending into cell-phone dead-zone stations or used interactively with location-based help at above-ground stations and ones that have been wired, like the 14th Street station on the A line in Manhattan.)

“In a setting like the subway,” Ms. Bloodworth said, “art really does something. It gives a certain amount of dignity to your ride and your day. And this is finally going to be like having the whole collection in the palm of your hand.”

While the app is not yet available, you can take a sneak peek at the design on Meridian’s site.

Screen Shot 2012 03 15 at 8.13.05 PM 520x334 NYC just built an app for finding art in its largest gallery: The subway systemI honestly had no idea that the works of acclaimed artists like Roy Lichtenstein were even in the subway system, which is exactly why such an app is very necessary. Now, all we need is a little extra cleaning, non-stop WiFi, cell reception and a dehumidifier the size of Godzilla and I’ll be set for life.

Update: You can download the app here, free for Android & iOS. You can also see more subway art here.

Do you think your dog would like to watch TV while you are out? Pet programming on DOGTV

March 5, 2012

dogtv32512.jpg

Next time you need to leave your beloved pooch at home for a couple hours, along with laying out favorite toys and extra water you can also leave the TV tuned intoDOGTV. For those of you with cable, DOGTV is a channel programmed specifically to entertain dogs and it’s on 24 hours a day.

Animal behavior researchers for DOGTV have discovered that dogs are happier when the television is on. They have different programs that help stimulate, entertain, relax and habituate dogs while they are watching.

We’re not a huge fans of anyone gluing themselves to the tube, but DOGTV is interesting because it’s a possible solution for animal behavior like anxiety or attachment that many dogs experience when their owners are away. Programs with calming sounds and music help ease any anxious feelings animals get while stimulating segments with active images and invigorating sounds keep dogs excited and active.

DOGTV recommends that you watch the program with your pet to begin with until it becomes familiar with the program and can ease into it.

Unreal Underground: the World’s 10 Coolest Subway Systems

February 18, 2012

In urban life, the subway is synonymous with the spirit of the city.  It frees the city dweller from the automobile, it moves from point to point with speed while capturing the curiosity of its passenger.  From Moscow to Montreal, Paris to Pyongyang, these 10 transit systems house truly stunning subway stations across all aspects of design.  So grab your transit card and head underground– get ready to explore the 10 coolest subway systems in the modern world.

The Washington Metro

We contend that the Washington Metro is the most iconic and visually progressive subway system in the United States.  First built in 1976, this 100-mile network of tunnels includes 28 stations, most of which are the work of architect Harry Weese.  These massive, concrete caverns feature an egg carton texture that stretches from one side to the other in a split cylinder design.  The walls are out of reach, there are no thick pillars breaking up the view and the whole expanse is awash in indirect light.  These features are as much as aspect of design as they are safety, as the Washington Metro subway stations provide few if any dark crannies in which crime can hide.  First time riders will also be amazed at the sheer depth of these Metro stations.  Some stations reach down 200 feet below the surface, providing for one heck of a long, slow ride into the caverns below.

The Moscow Metro Subway System

The world’s second most used subway system is also amongst its most beautiful.  Nearly 7,000,000 people ride the Moscow Metro Subway each day, zipping through 190 miles of tunnels that stretch as low as 276-feet below the surface.  While some of its stations are nondescript, others are magnificent, ornate works of classically-influenced design.  Take for example the Komsomolskaya Metro Station in Moscow, shown above.  This gem of underground architecture was built in the 1930s and remains one of the world’s most lasting, most beautiful subway stations.  [image credits: 1,2,3,4,5,6]

The Taipei Metro Subway System

Nearly 2,000,000 passengers ride the Taipei Metro subway system every day, cruising at speeds of up to 56mph across Taiwan’s capitol city.  The clean and vibrant design of Taipei Metro’s stations has attracted many riders to the subway, a movement which has helped curb traffic congestion and spark urban renewal.  Glass and light art cover the ceiling and columns of the station above, while fine art grace the walls of others.  Is it a subway station, or is it an art gallery?  More cities across the world should ask subway riders the same question.  [image credits: 1,2,3,4,5,6]

The Paris Metro

When it comes to old world subway stations, this is as old world as it gets.  The Paris Metro subway system will turn 112 years old this year, its history reflecting Parisian pride with an Art Nouveau sense of style.  The design character of its stations span the whole reach of classical to modern, separated by basic designs that are purely functional.  The city of Paris has maintained the allure of many of the original stations that have an almost storybook character.  But those of modern Paris reflect the city’s evolution of culture throughout the centuries.  [image credits: 1,2,3,4,5,6]

Montreal Metropolitan

Another great French-speaking city is home to another great subway, the Montreal Metropolitan subway system.  The Montreal Metro was born in 1966, in time for the world expo held the following year in this city.  This was a vibrant time in Montreal, and the subway stations that dot this system reflect that vibrancy.  Like the stations of the Moscow Metro and the Taipei Metro, this subway system is host to a collection of art galleries throughout its network.  Public art ranging from fine to performance is welcomed here, far below the city it services.  And with 1,100,000 riders a day, that makes it one of the most popular art galleries in the world.  From the design of its subway stations to the culture it embraces, the Montreal Metro is high on our list for the world’s most beautiful subway systems.  [image credits: 1,2,3,4,5,6]

Frankfurt U-Bahn Subway System

Since 1968, the Frankfurt U-Bahn subway system has served passengers traversing through Germany’s 5th largest city.  Nearly have of the city’s population rides the U-Bahn every day, passing through 86 stations over 40 miles of track.  Its stations are a wonder to experience, ranging from playful to progressive and everything in between.  One features an entryway that looks like a runaway subway car has crashed through the surface.  Another features symmetrical shapes that feels almost otherworldly.  While Germany itself has its fair share of attractive subway systems, Frankfurt’s U-Bahn may be the country’s pearl.  [image credits: 1,2,3,4,5,6]

Pyongyang Metro

Yes, that Pyongyang.  This short, busy and out-dated subway system might be the world’s most mysterious.  Rarely seen by eyes foreign to North Korea, the Pyongyang Metro subway system stretches across 14 miles and 17 stations.  Despite its relatively short length, it serves even more daily travelers than Frankfurt’s U-Bahn.  Its design hasn’t likely changed much since it was first revealed back in 1969.  For a country as troubled as this one, a lack of change doesn’t come as a surprise.  Still, it must be wild to travel on this subway as a westerner.  Not only would it feel like walking into a different country, but a decade long since passed.  [image credits:1,2,3,4,5,6]

Kazakhstan’s Almaty Subway

After 23 years in construction, punctuated by a very long break, Kazakhstan’s Almaty Subway opened its doors on December 1st, 2011.  The world’s youngest subway is immediately amongst the world’s most beautiful, featuring a design character that is at once modern and classical.  Stained glass windows, geometric paint patterns, glossy floors and ornate chandeliers make this subway system a destination in its own right.

NYC’s Abandoned City Hall Subway Station

You could have ridden the Metra a thousand times and completely missed this station.  NYC’s Abandoned City Hall Subway Station is closed to the public, accessible only during a very rare tour or an illegal entry.  It was first closed in 1945, opened just once for public viewing since.  It is a rare glimpse back to the early days of New York’s subway system, a look at turn-of-the-century design in the greatest of American cities.  Want to see more like this?  Check out TheCoolist’s exploration of the 10 most beautiful abandoned places in the world.

Stockholm Subway

The Stockholm Subway may be the most beautiful subway system in the world.  It features over 100 stations, some above ground and others below, and has been called the “longest art gallery in the world”.  The blue line subway stations feature exposed bedrock as part of the design, giving a natural appeal to the otherwise modern designs.  With carefully placed lights and stylish paint jobs, the stations are absolutely stunning to the eyes, reflecting a world class design sensibility that should make the people of Sweden proud.  Upon a visit to Stockholm, the subway isn’t just a great way to get around, it’s also a must-see destination for travelers in Sweden.  [image credits: 1,2,3,4,5,6]

2012 Light Festival – Ghent, Belgium

February 4, 2012

Just like fireworks, originally used in celebrations to reach up to and greet the spirits in the sky, this LED-light cathedral aimed VERY VERY high! We’re not sure if it was visible from space (or higher) but it certainly glowed brightly.

More than half-a-million people were drawn to the Luminaire De Cagna LED-light display at the 2012 Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium. Luminaire De Cagna became the main attraction of the Festival that included more than 30 other displays and exhibitions.

Constructed of wood, covered with 55,000 LED lights and reaching 28 meters (92 ft.) into the sky above Belfortstraat, the Romanesque cathedral-like Luminaire De Cagna used only 20 kWh of energy.

Luminaire De Cagna is an Italian family business that has created light displays since 1930. They started with oil and carbine lights, moved on to electric and, since 2006, have used LED-lights exclusively. – Tuija Seipell

Spontaneous City in the Tree of Heaven by London Fieldworks

Rural and remote locations with profuse green spaces, which work as refuges in a highly populated city like London are hosting some magical artistic installations. Spontaneous City In The Tree Of Heaven is one of these sculptural installations commissioned by Up Projects and created by London based artistic duo Jo Joelson and Bruce Gilchrist, known as London Fieldworks.

Several Hundred bespoke bird boxes are carefully placed on two Ailanthus Altissima trees, also known as the tree of heaven and “aim to provide both a sculptural work to be enjoyed by the public and an architecture that would be accessible to the birds,” the artists explain.   Spanning from Duncan Terrace Gardens in the East side of London to Cremorne Gardens in the westSpontaneous City expanded on themes from an earlier London Fieldworks project “Super Kingdom” a series of animal show homes modeled on the imperious architecture of despots’ palaces (MussoliniStalin and Ceauşescu) and commissioned by Stour Valley Arts for King’s Wood in Kent the artists explain. “However the urban location of the Spontaneous City project drew on the local architecture surrounding the parks and the ecology and biodiversity of the area that offered great potential as a contemporary narrative,” they say.

Spontaneous City // Duncan Terrace Gardens //  Image Courtesy of London Fieldworks

Georgian townhouse architecture is evident in Duncan Terrace Gardens in Islington and “as an exception to this, towards the south end of the gardens on Colebrook Row is a block of 60’s social housing flats, an enclave of modernity in stark contrast to the traditional architecture of the townhouse,“ they say. According to the artists, this provided a tension both architecturally and demographically. “This tension reminded us of the gated communities and fortified developments butted up against to shanty and slum housing that we saw in the cities of Bangalore, India and Sao Paul in Brazil.

The presence of an Ailanthus Altissima or tree of heaven, in the centre of the narrow garden sandwiched between Duncan Terrace and Colebrook Row further heightened the local context as they both stress. They later found another tree of heaven in the Oremorne Gardens and used the species as a way of linking both locations. Jo Joelson and Bruce Gilchrist also explain that the name of the tree within the project’s title could have some kind of utopian pretensions. “But as an added layer of biodiversity speak, there’s irony in the title of “Spontaneous City in the Tree of Heaven“.”

Functioning as an allegory of population crash and dwindling biodiversity Spontaneous City, “could also be interpreted as a metaphor for voidance,” the duo explain.

Spontaneous City // Cremorne Gardens //  Image Courtesy of London Fieldworks

The Ailanthus altissima is a deciduous tree native to both northeast and central China and Taiwan, and is a tree species of much botanical interest in London, and elsewhere in England generally. Essentially, there is concern that this ornamental turn invasive species is poised to dramatically increase in numbers. It’s one of the fastest growing trees around, it’s allelopathic (meaning it produces a biochemical that inhibits the growth of other plants within its vicinity), and its seed production capabilities are prodigious”.

London Fieldworks is a collaborative partnership between artists Bruce Gilchrist and Jo Joelson. Bruce studied at Canterbury School of Art and Jo at Croydon College of Art.  London Fieldworks practice is typically inter-disciplinary, collaborative and socially engaged, working across installation, sculpture, architecture, film and animation. Projects have explored the authenticity of mediated experience and experience of place; the creation of alternative narratives drawn from the histories of place, society and culture; and the poetic applications of technology. These ideas are seminal to the artists’ notion of ecology as a complex inter-working of social, natural, and technological worlds. Imaginatively sited projects in urban and rural settings have been inspired by research undertaken in remote sites in Brazil, North East Greenland, Northern Norway, Scottish Highlands and the USA.

World’s first sex school opens in Austria

December 7, 2011

While many people may think it’s an activity which should be best learned behind closed doors, an enterprising Swedish schoolmistress thinks otherwise. Ylva-Maria Thompson has opened the world’s first international sex school for teaching the art of being better lovers, the Daily Mail reported.

The Austrian International Sex School in Vienna offers ‘hands on’ lessons in seduction for 1,400 pounds a term. The ‘headmistress’ says anyone over the age of 16 can enrol at ‘the world’s first college of applied sexuality’.

Students of the course are expected to stay in a co-ed dormitory block where they’re expected to practice their ‘homework’. By the end of their course, they are awarded a qualification.

The school head said: “Our core education is not theoretical, but very practical. The emphasis is on how to be a better lover.

“Sexual positions, caressing techniques, anatomical features. And we teach people hands on.”

School’s spokesperson Melodi Kirsch exuded confidence that the school would be a great success.

The school, however, has already turned controversial in Austria with its raunchy advertisments showing a couple making love having already invited a ban by Austrian TV.

Una joven egipcia se desnuda en internet representa la censura del conocimiento, la expresión y la sexualidad.

November 21, 2011


La revolución árabe nacida en Egipto adopta nuevas formas y expresiones. Así, una joven feminista egipcia publicó enInternet unas fotos en las que aparece desnuda, hecho que tuvo gran resonancia en la red.

En la foto de su blog, Aliaa Magda El Mahdy de 20 años, aparece de pie, con unas medias negras como única prenda de vestir, y una flor roja en el pelo. En la página hay también otra variante de la foto en forma de tríptico, en el cual aparece un rectángulo amarillo cubriendo consecutivamente los ojos, la boca y el sexo de la muchacha. Esta imagen representa la censura del conocimiento, la expresión y la sexualidad, explica Magda.

La joven feminista afirma que estas fotos son una expresión de su libertad. “Tengo el derecho a sentirme libre en cualquier lugar. Me siento feliz y contenta conmigo misma cuando siento que estoy realmente libre”, escribió Magda en el blog.

La muchacha, que estudia en la Universidad Americana de El Cairo, se pronuncia contra “la sociedad de violencia, racismo, sexismo, acoso sexual e hipocresía”. Entre los ´enemigos ideológicos´ de la joven está la prohibición de usar modelos desnudas en las escuelas de arte egipcias, que está vigente desde los años 70. Asimismo, Magda condena la censura de las estatuas desnudas en objetos arqueológicos y en libros.

La publicación del desnudo de la joven egipcia provocó una polémica en Internet. Así hay quienes aplaudieron su valentía, ya que se atrevió a publicar las fotos bajo su nombre real y no optó por un seudónimo, como hacen muchos usuarios deInternet. Pero hay también algunas voces de reproche. Así, por ejemplo, uno de los comentarios en el blog señala que se trata “de un acto desesperado y de un suicidio social y político” de la joven. El autor del comentario hasta llama a las autoridades de Egipto a expresarse al respecto.

Mientras tanto, Magda está firme en su decisión de seguir luchando por un Egipto libre de tabúes.

Duran Duran New video.

November 18, 2011

Duran Duran have had tenacious, three-decade-long staying power with their danceable musicianship, sing-along choruses, and their celebration of glamour and glitz. Their latest video “Girl Panic!” captures the essence of Duran Duran, along with their irreverent humor.

In it, Duran Duran cleverly cast a host of supermodels (all of whom have been in their vids before) that live out the hedonistic rock-and-roll lifestyle, with champagne, hot groupies, awesome fashion and paparazzi. Naomi Campbell plays lead singer Simon Le Bon, Cindy Crawford plays bassist John Taylor, Eva Herzigova is keyboardist Nick Rhodes, Helena Christensen is drummer Roger Taylor, while Yasmine Le Bon takes a turn as their unnamed guitarist. The real members of Duran Duran appear as supporting staff (bellhops, waitstaff, chauffeurs and press), and Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana (as inthat Dolce & Gabbana) even make cameos as fashion editors.
