DOG'S LIFE

by Michael Balaroutsos
     architect

To clarify from the outset. I am a friend of animals.
Seeing these pictures, I wondered if they deserved the 6 years that I studied architecture.
Those who have studied they know,!!! we go to university full of dreams, ready to attribute ambitious ideas, and implement the goals of our lives.
But, to design the house for our dogs pals?
absolutely not.
At least, I do not ever imagined.
Of course now that in my country started to push our economic crisis, I think I started to see it as a very good idea.
My only concern is that I do not know who will survive the crisis (over the next 10 years at least.) People? or our friends ,the animals?
(I heard someone wants house for hamster?)

Move: Choreographing You / Amanda Levete Architects - eVolo | Architecture Magazine


Move: Choreographing You is an exhibition of visual and performance art curated and hosted by the Hayward Gallery on LondonÔÇÖs Southbank. The theme of the exhibition focuses on sculptures and installations which invite the visitor to become both participant and performer through interaction with performers, visitors, and the pieces themselves.
Amanda Levete Architects was commissioned by the Hayward Gallery to do the interior spatial design and planning of the exhibition, as well as develop a multi-media archive in collaboration with interactive designers Unit 9. The exhibition design was driven by the relationships between choreography and geometry, movement and form. Inspired by the photographic motion studies of the human body of Etienne-Jules Marey and Eadweard Muybridge, we have created a collection of spatial dividers which are defined by a serial transformation of a single material: a sequence of folded oscillations of Dupont Tyvek. The resulting translucent paper-like fabric ribbons, a counterpoint to the brutality of the building, rise and fall with undulating folds which simultaneously define themselves as way finding devices, partitions, suspended ceilings, and portals. These fluid spatial and formal transformations choreograph the movement of the visitor through areas of sculpture, film, archive and performance.
The spatial configurations defined by our dividers are intended to embody two types of performative experience: public and private. In the public experience, the ribbons frame views, carve space, and lead visitors to a fluid and communal experience of the interactive objects and installations of Bruce Nauman, Robert Morris, Franz West, Franz E. Walther, William Forsythe, Christian Jankowski, and others.
In the private experience, the ribbons are used to enclose and define smaller more intimate spaces for introspective and singular experiences with the works of Isaac Julien, Dan Graham, Simone Forti, Tanya Bruguera, Lygia Clark and others. While the expressive form of the ribbons was conceived as a choreography of material inspired by origami, the structure and bespoke detailing of the paper-like ribbons was inspired by those found in kites and was developed in close collaboration with fabricators Kite Related Design.

» Go See - Milan: John Baldessari at the Prada Foundation through December 26, 2010 - AO Art Observed™


John Baldessari, Giacometti Variations, 2010. Via Vogue
With his newest show, Giacometti Variations, at the Prada Foundation in Milan, conceptual artist John Baldessari comments on the culture of fashion in a city known for its style. “There is currently a blurring of art and fashion. It is de rigueur that fashion models be extremely tall and thin,” says Baldessari. “GiacomettiÔÇÖs figures are the most emaciated and skinny sculptures that exist. Why not push that further?”
More story after the jump…

Referencing both the theatrics of a fashion show and the ultra-thin models in the industry, the lithe figures drip with designer clothes in surreal proportions, their outfits changing twice throughout the exhibition.
From Rapunzel braids to oversized trench coats and clown shoes, Baldessari shows off his versatility while maintaining his sense of humor. Though the 70-year-old artist favors simple sweaters and blue jeans, when asked about his relationship to the garments in the show, he said to Wallpaper,“Maybe this is my inner self coming out.”

Via The Daily Beast
Curated by Germano Celant, the nine bronzed sculptures—in the iconic style of Alberto Giacometti—were produced by Miuccia Prada. Providing the accessories as well, Baldessari acknowledged Prada with an oversized bag, complete with a mini, Oscar-like statue inside.
The Prada Foundation was founded by Patrizio Bertelli and Miuccia Prada in 1993, with Germano Celante brought on as artistic director in 1995. As a non-profit, the foundation was born of a PradaÔÇÖs passion for contemporary art; “What interests me most is when a work of art is no longer just an object, but also touches reality and life,” says Miuccia.
