Run DMC, 1984 – Credit: Janette Beckman,85038681
Getty Images recently featured photographer Janette Beckman in their all access coverage series. After leaving London for New York in the early eighties Beckman made a name for herself photographing the likes of Salt-N-Pepa, De La Soul, and Run DMC. See more below.
In partnership with the all-new Toyota Prius, The Creators Project has launched the Future Forward Event Series — an exciting, month-long program aimed at fostering artistic experimentation and cultural innovation. Commissioning three separate, ground-breaking installations that pair art with futuristic technology, with each piece being inspired by either Design, Technology, or Eco-heritage, all aimed at being applicable to our everyday lives.
For example, Doris Sung has developed “Drift”, a heat responsive chandelier, with the focus of the piece being on the technology of the thermobimetal and the implications about how this material can be used. The multidisciplinary creatives over at VT Pro Design have similarly worked with reactive tech with their project “Reach”, as their “living wall” responds to human movement and incorporates live plants. Lastly, illustrator Noemi Schipfer and architect/musician Takami Nakamoto (aka NONOTAK Studio) challenged the limits of dimensionality with their light installation exploring the sensations and perceptions of infinite space.
The Future Forward event series takes place in Chicago on June 18th. Click here to RSVP to these events and check out some behind-the-scenes videos of the three projects below!
This looks kinda cool/nerdy. Blips are a set of ultra thin lenses by Smart Micro Optics that turn your phone into a microscope or magnifying glass! Apparently based on imaging systems developed in the neuroscience department of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), the sticker-like lenses look kinda cheap to be honest but could be fun for a little bit. The image above is a human eye shot using the lens. Watch the video below.
Last month we posted a call for participants for 180 Creative Camp, taking place July 3rd – 10th in Abrantes, Portugal (click here for previous post). The event provides an opportunity for young creatives from around the world to meet, learn and collaborate together over 8 days of workshops, talks and activities. It sounds amazing!
If you’re interested in attending, applications are open until June 25th. Click here to apply or leave a comment below with your favourite summer camp memory for a chance to win one free ticket (300€). While you’d still have to find your way to Portugal on your own, the ticket includes participation in the camp, as well as food and accommodation in a youth hostel. We’ll pick a winner on June 23rd!
Excited for my friend designer Maggie Chok who has just launched Faculty Magazine, which seeks to investigate the natural world through a variety of disciplines. There’s a bunch of great content there already, covering everything from interference colours to poisonous mushrooms. If the intersection of art and science gets you excited, you should bookmark it now!
