    Christopher Raeburn for Victorinox Sentry Scarf

    There are some interesting points to mention regarding the sentry scarf from the Christopher Raeburn for Victorinox. First, they were made in the same workshop that Karl Elsener, founder of Victorinox made the first Swiss Army Knife. A total of 100 scarves were produced and most important, they are all made from remnant Swiss Army blanket materials - over-dyed to give them their distinct look. Ron Herman has them.

    More look after the click.

    Twisted pencil conveys aesthetic value with a nuance of amusement by expressing the relations between the two things- pencil and pencil vase. In comparison with general products, it isn’t a pencil vase that can contain a lot more pencils, but it includes new aesthetics and morphological consideration about things.

    Remember GeoCities? Explore a Map of the Vintage Internet Metropolis: “

    Via GOOD
    —–
    de Zak Stone

    DELETED CITY

    Before there was MySpace, there was GeoCities, the vast metropolis of glitchy amateur websites, pulsating with gif animations, that were the hub of digital culture for countless late-’90s teens. If you haven’t found yourself in some cobweb-coated corner of the internet in a while and landed on one of their sites, that’s because Yahoo shut down U.S. GeoCities two years ago, just 10 years after acquiring it for $3.57 billion at the height of the dot-com boom.

    Pained by the potential loss of the record of 35 million participants’ personal expression, the Internet Archive Team launched a project to save the GeoCities data for posterity, releasing a 641-GB torrent file worth of GeoCities data on the one year anniversary of its closing last October. Now this year, Dutch information designer Richard Vijgen has plotted that data along a scrollable world map of all those ancient GeoCities. He’s calling it The Deleted City, “a digital archaeology of the world wide web as it exploded into the 21st century.” It lives as an interactive touchscreen data visualization.

    The project gives a visual representation to the change in thinking and living through the internet that we’ve undergone in the past decade and a half. Before the internet was understood as a (social) network, GeoCities conceived of it as a city, where “homesteaders” could build on a digital parcel, grouped in “neighborhoods” based on topic. (Celebrity oriented sites were grouped together in “Hollywood,” for example.)  The Deleted City replicates this logic by organizing the old websites along an urban grid. Thematic “neighborhoods” that had more content associated appear bigger. As you wander the city, you can zoom in to get more detail, and eventually locate individual html sites.

    While GeoCities lives on in the popular imagination as the punchline of design and tech jokes—there’s even a website to paint over slick 21st-century design with a GeoCities patina—Deleted Cities draws attention to the  the way that it helped many people pioneer the web, and captures a slice of web history in a dynamic and elegant way.

  16. Giant pipe and balloon to pump water into the sky in climate experiment

    Field test by British academics marks first step towards recreating an artificial volcano that would inject particles into the stratosphere and cool the planet

     

     

    Spice pipe and balloon experiment

     

    It sounds barmy, audacious or sci-fi: a tethered balloon the size of Wembley stadium suspended 20km above Earth, linked to the ground by a giant garden hose pumping hundreds of tonnes of minute chemical particles a day into the thin stratospheric air to reflect sunlight and cool the planet.

    But a team of British academics will next month formally announce the first step towards creating an artificial volcano by going ahead with the world’s first major “geo-engineering” field-test in the next few months. The ultimate aim is to mimic the cooling effect that volcanoes have when they inject particles into the stratosphere that bounce some of the Sun’s energy back into space, so preventing it from warming the Earth and mitigating the effects of man-made climate change.

    (…) more about it on The Guardian.

     

    and also, in the same article:

     

    Hacking the planet – potential geo-engineering solutions

    Ocean nourishment

    Billions of iron filings are deposited in the ocean to stimulate a phytoplankton bloom. The aim is to enhance biological productivity to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Many experiments have been conducted, including fertilisation of 900 square kilometers (350 sq miles) of the Atlantic. Results so far are disappointing.

    Space mirrors

    Giant “mirrors”, made of wire mesh, could be sent into in orbit to deflect sunlight back into space. But the scale needed, the expense and the potential unintended consequences are so great that it is widely considered unrealistic. In the same league as the idea to mine the moon to create a shielding cloud of dust.

    Cloud whitening

    The idea is to increase the water content in low clouds by spraying sea water at them. This makes them reflect more sunlight. It would be pretty harmless, and cheap but would have to be done on an immense scale to have any global effect. Backed by Bill Gates.

    Artificial trees

    Proposed by climate scientist Wallace Broecker who imagines 60m artificial “trees” dotted around the world, “scrubbing” the air by capturing CO2 in a filter and then storing it underground. The trees could remove more carbon dioxide than an equivalent-sized real tree.

    Albedo changes

    Painting roofs and roads white, covering deserts in reflective plastic sheeting, dropping pale-coloured litter into the ocean and genetically engineering crops to be paler have all been proposed to reflect sunlight back into space.

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS)

    Carbon dioxide is collected from coal or other fossil fuel power plants and is then pumped underground. Works in principle but it is expensive and increases the fuel needs of a coal-fired plant by 25%-40%. More than 40 plants have been built with many others planned.

  18. Waffles in América

    Waffles in América: “

    Certains aliments ont le goût particulier d’un moment de la journée…

    Les œufs au bacon sentent le petit déjeuner, l’odeur de la sauce tomate met l’appétit en éveil à peine le midi sonné et le bloblotement d’un ragout mettrait autour d’une table plus d’un le soir à peine venu.
    Il y a des aliments comme ça qui sonnent le goût d’un moment.

    Et puis il y en d’autres qui mettent en appétit du soir au matin et du matin au soir. L’odeur d’une pâte à crêpes s’étalant dans le beurre, le pain qui lève dans le four ou celle d’une gaufre finissant de s’attraper du croustillant dans un grill sont de ceux qui m’éveillent l’appétit quelque soit l’heure !

    La gaufre qui s’éveille gentiment au matin et qui va se promener en compagnie d’une petite confiture, celle qui va partager son croquant avec une petite tranche de lard et finir par fondre pour le jaune d’œuf qui lui coule dessus et celle qui le soir venu se perd sous un chocolat fondant et réconfortant, toutes ces gaufres montrent à quel point chaque moment de la journée peu avoir une gaufre pour l’accompagner.

    Et comme ce mois-ci il est question d’Amérique en voilà une qui peut prendre bien des parfums et sans doute accompagner bien des moments.

    Waffles in América

    Ingrédients : 40cl de lait -2 œufs – 100g de beurre -300g de farine – 1 sachet de levure chimique – 50g de sucre roux en poudre – des noix de pécan hachées – des cranberries séchées – des myrtilles fraîches – du sirop d’érable – des framboises – du Fluff…

    Versez dans un saladier le lait, les œufs, le beurre, la farine et la levure. Mélangez bien le tout.

    Faites chauffer votre gaufrier et badigeonnez le de beurre.

    Quand il est bien chaud mélangez le sucre avec la pâte à gaufre et mélangez rapidement.

    Versez une belle louche de pâte dans le gaufrier puis parsemez la pâte avec des noix de pécan, des cranberries ou des myrtilles et faites dorer les gaufres.

    Continuez jusqu’à finir toute la pâte en variant les garnitures. Etalez vos gaufres au fur et à mesure sur des plaques pour qu’elles ne ramolissent pas.

    Servez les gaufres avec du sirop d’éralble, des framboises fraîches et du Fluff en laissant chacun composer sa gaufre.

    Open Books – Perpetual Proposal: ”

    Perpetual Proposal
    A space and classification system by Fay Nicolson and Oliver Smith for Openbooks

    Perpetual Proposal is a system to initiate and record the flow of books within an exhibition as reading room. The Books (selected by Sophie Demay and Charlotte Cheetham) all deal with the form and content of the book as a subject. Being interested in mathematician and librarian S.R. Raganathan’s Five Laws of Library Science*, Fay and Oliver encourage visitors to the exhibition to select books from the peg board display and browse through them at their leisure. Investigating the idea of a reader as both a consumer and (re)producer of knowledge Fay and Oliver ask visitors to select a page using a book mark for our librarian to copy. The rationale behind page selection is left in hands of each reader.

    Throughout his/her shift the librarian will copy and index selected pages, binding them into a compendium that will enter the selection of exhibited books each day. These new additions both document the use of, and add to, the collection of exhibited books.

    * Raganathan’s Five Laws of Library Science are:
    1. BOOKS ARE FOR USE.
    2. EVERY READER HIS (OR HER) BOOK.
    3. EVERY BOOK ITS READER.
    4. SAVE THE TIME OF THE USER
    5. THE LIBRARY IS A GROWING ORGANISM

    Here is a diagram that charts the proposed flow of books around the space:

    alessandro botto: “This series of painting by Alessandro Botto might be familiar as we have seen some similarity with some photography work, but compare to photography I liken more towards Alessandro’s painting as it has certain fluidity where photography hasn’t capture it.

    UK based artist Alessandro was born in Lima, Peru, and is a self-taught painter holding a degree in architecture and a masters in industrial design. Alessandro moved to the United States in 1995 to study architecture and to complete a masters in industrial design in New York, he later moved to London in 2005. After working as an architect in New York and London, he developed an interest in painting that helped him create a personal language and technique, and now paints full time in his studio in England. Alessandro has exhibited his paintings in galleries and private collections in London, New York and Lima. Working with acrylics on MDF slats and canvas, his paintings are inspired by the relationship between beauty and chaos, and are also influenced by fashion and urban landscapes. His work explores movement through the analysis of balance, velocity and the hierarchy of elements within a composition.

    Media Art Net | Warburg, Aby M.: Mnemosyne-Atlas.

    Aby M. Warburg
    «Mnemosyne-Atlas»

    Warburg entitled the series «Mnemosyne, A Picture Series Examining the Function of Preconditioned Antiquity-Related Expressive Values for the Presentation of Eventful Life in the Art of the European Renaissance». The atlas is fundamentally the attempt to combine the philosophical with the image-historical approach. Attached on wooden boards covered with black cloth are photographs of images, reproductions from books, and visual materials from newspapers and/or daily life, which Warburg arranges in such a way that they illustrate one or several thematic areas. Only the boards of the picture atlas have survived as photographed ensembles. Throughout the years since 1924, Warburg’s picture collection of circa 2,000 reproductions generated other configurations fixed and photographed on boards. In addition, specific themes were reconfigured for individual exhibitions or lectures. The last existing series originally consisted of 63 tableaus.
    Today, Warburg’s working style would be categorized as researching ‹visual clusters›. Only these are not ordered according to visual similarity, evident in the sense of an iconographic history of style; but rather through relationships caused by an ‹affinity for one another› and the principle of ‹good company,› which let themselves be reconstructed through the study of texts (as for example, contract conditions or biological associations).

  61. The idea of a tree

    mischertraxler the idea of a tree.

    ‘The idea of  a tree’ – objects are the outcomes fromrecorder one. ‘The idea of  a tree’ is a production process which uses the natural input of the sun with a mechanical process. This creates unique objects that represent the sun’s intensity of the day and place of production.

    The length/height of the resulting object depends on the sunhours of the day.
    winter = shorter objects
    summer = longer objects

    The thickness of the layer and the colour is depending on the amount of sun-energy.
    more sun = thicker layer and paler colour
    less  sun = thinner layer and darker colour

    The correlation between input and output makes the changes visual and readable. The product becomes a three-dimensional ‘photograph’ of the time and the place where it is produced.

    After one day of winding the cotton structure can be ‘harvested’ off the machine. A few days, later the dried piece is finished by hand and a label, telling day and place of production, is placed on the evening side of the object.

  64. TYPES WE CAN MAKE

    Types We Can Make: A Selection of Contemporary Swiss Type Design, opening September 7 in the MIT Museum Compton Gallery, graphically examines the ways in which the field of typography has been radically transformed through the variety of media available today. The exhibition was organized by the MIT Museum in collaboration with the University of Art and Design Lausanne, Switzerland (ECAL), and swissnex Boston.

    “Because the teaching of the craft is once again being taken seriously, and consequently it is debated how to set type in a powerful way that establishes meaning, there is a great deal of experimentation in Switzerland at the moment. Many new typefaces are being created…graphic designers and type designers are talking to each other again,”says designer Jonas Vögeli.


  65. Le Président

    Jusqu’ici, sur la terre, tout le désordre a résulté du fait que quelques-uns ont voulu mettre de l’ordre et toute ordure du fait que quelques-uns ont voulu balayer. Comprenez-moi, la véritable malédiction, en ce monde, c’est l’organisation, et le véritable bonheur, c’est l’inorganisé, le hasard, le caprice.

    I would have never thought that I would once post tea towels. Today is that day. Pieke Bergmans designed 6 tea towels for the Textile Museum in Tilburg (The Netherlands). Each one is infected by the dreaded Design Virus. Her goal is to make “personalized mass production” where irregularities are ruled in.
    You can buy them for €15 a piece in blue or red at Wannekes.

  78. Rumors of the Web’s Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated (with Infographics)

    Via GOOD
    —–
    by Patrick James
     

    While reading Wired's recent feature, "The Web is Dead. Long Live the Internet," Boing Boing's Rob Beschizza took issue with the following infographic, which illustrates the claim that the web is dead based on the total proportion of internet traffic instead of total overall use.

    If you went with total useage, the graph might look like this:

    "In fact," Beschizza writes, "between 1995 and 2006, the total amount of web traffic went from about 10 terabytes a month to 1,000,000 terabytes (or 1 exabyte). According to Cisco, the same source Wired used for its projections, total internet traffic rose then from about 1 exabyte to 7 exabytes between 2005 and 2010."

    Now, using actual total traffic as the vertical axis, Beschizza reimagines the graph like this:

    Does that look like "death" to you?

  81. ring pops

    This is a good example of ~ I love you so much that it will melt.

    Brooklyn based artist Julia Chiang uses a wide variety of materials in her sculpture and installation based work, including nostalgic and sweet ring pops. The colourfoul candy has been used by chiang in a number of works often employed as pixels spelling out words. The candy jewels atop the rings melts over time under gallery lights and slowly drips down the walls. The melted sugar stains the surfaces it touches.

  84. Arctic Opening (Fenêtre Arctique)

    The aim of the project is to let appear a “second day” made of a large artificial ligthing, between Marseille’s sunsets and sunrises, when everything becomes dark and quiet on the islands. This illumination will have its source up north, beyond the polar circle, where the sun shines 24 hours long during summer. Thus the continuous day of the arctic summer will be transported to the shore of the Mediterranean Sea.

    Arctic Opening will light up a zone of the arid landscape of the Frioul close to an industrial ruin, channeling a fictional catastrophic future of an Arctic Ocean free of ice with the present of this mediterranean island, already surrounded by sea routes and heavy tourism. The result will become a metis landscape, all nights long: an arctic mediterranean, remote day at night.

    Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is the relationship between a local farm/farmer and those that eat the food they produce. Most consumers not only are unaware of where their food comes from, but who is growing it and how it is produced. The CSA seeks to end our disconnection from the farmer and the land that sustains us. Joining a CSA helps to continue the ancient practices of land stewardship, while at the same time supporting local farmers. By becoming a member of a CSA, you are committing to sustain a local farm and a sustainable food system.

    Community supported agriculture (CSA) is a new idea in farming, one that has been gaining momentum since its introduction to the United States from Europe in the mid-1980s. The CSA concept originated in the 1960s in Switzerland and Japan, where consumers interested in safe food and farmers seeking stable markets for their crops joined together in economic partnerships. Today, CSA farms in the U.S., known as CSAs, currently number more than 400. Most are located near urban centers in New England, the Mid-Atlantic States, and the Great Lakes region, with growing numbers in other areas, including the West Coast.
