Shutter Ísland

by Team Nine. A film by Iwan Bigler & Raphael Nussbaum. [VIDEO]
metalocus, INÉS LALUETA
This is the first project in a series of hopefully many more released by Team Nine. Set in Switzerland and Iceland, Shutter Ísland tells the story of Iwan and Raphael meeting up for a fifteen day journey exploring the island in the North Atlantic. We knew that Iceland is also referred to as photographer's paradise so we packed some camera equipment and a plan for a video project. The idea was to capture the sceneries that we came across while driving and hiking, and to bring them home as a souvenir. Good memories.

Art, VIDEO
One of the art world's most enigmatic characters, Gilbert & George have kept us entertained for over forty years. Crane.tv visited the pair at White Cube Bermondsey to talk about their political leanings, what happiness means and their latest exhibition, London Pictures, which showcases 292 pictures based on 3,712 newspaper bills they've pilfered over the past six years from selected newsagents in east and north London.

For five decades, to international acclaim, Gilbert & George have been making art that is visionary, shocking, relentless, moral and richly atmospheric.

In these new ‘LONDON PICTURES’ (2011) Gilbert & George present an epic survey of modern urban life in all its volatility, tragedy, absurdity and routine violence.

Good Books - Metamorphosis.

by Buck. [VIDEO]

Design, VIDEO, Recommendations
This video was made by the famous american company design "Buck", who has directed and produced this tribute to promote the reading of good books. The animation takes as argument a reference to two well-known novels, "The Metamorphosis" written by Czech Franz Kafka and "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," the film that Terry Gilliam portrayed Hunter S. Thompson, creator of gonzo journalism.

Buck is a collective of illustrators, designers and animators who develop their teamwork. Their offices are in the cities of New York and Los Angeles, and worked on several commercials, as well as filming the video "Slow Poison" by The Bravery.

It is an adaptation, a reinterpretation, not even pretend to be faithful to the works, it's actually a plot excuse (and great, very good) to talk about good books and activate...

Resonant Chamber.

by rvtr [VIDEO]

Design, VIDEO
Resonant Chamber is an interior envelope system that deploys the principles of rigid origami to transform the acoustic environment through dynamic spatial, material and electro-acoustic technologies. Our aim is to develop a soundsphere able to adjust its properties in response to changing sonic conditions, altering the sound of a space during performance and creating an instrument at the scale of architecture, flexible enough that it might be capable of being played. The project is developed through three streams of iterative research and development in both computational testing and full-scale prototype installation: Dynamic Surface Geometries; Performative Material Systems; and Variable Actuation and Response. Resonant Chamber is funded through the 2011 Research through Making Grant, U-M Office of the Vice President for Research, 2011 Small Projects Grant, U-M Center for Wireless Integrated Microsystems, Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada Research Creation Grant.

 In its third year, University of Michigan Taubman College's Research Through Making (RTM) Program provides seed funding for faculty research, worked on by faculty, students and interdisciplinary experts. Historically, research and creative practice have been constructed as "opposites." This is not an unusual struggle in architecture schools, particularly in the context of a research university. This perceived tension between design and...

Japan one year later.

As Japan approaches the first anniversary of the crisis that transformed the nation, global attention will undoubtedly focus on the progress that the country has made in resurrecting its physical infrastructure. Restoring homes, roads, hospitals and schools, and mitigating the damage of the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl certainly deserve our attention and reflection. Still, it is important to remember that solving the social and economic problems that Japan faced before the crisis are just as critical.

The unique skills that graduate programs offer will play a vital roll in managing Japan's long-term recovery. If students and professionals continue to avoid higher education, Japan will find itself ill-equipped to maintain its revival. Considering how many people have been displaced and how much there is yet to be rebuilt, it may be worthwhile for the Ministry of Education to encourage distance learning or online graduate programs. Because online schools are...

Not is the remembrance day, today is a typical day, an ordinary day to remember. Better!

Scenes he recorded on his 7D while on a goodwill program in Japan in February of 2012.

We were able to walk around what remains of the Tsunami devastated township of Minamisanriku in the Tohoku region. I recorded audio from two ladies who shared with us firsthand their story of struggle and survival.

The Kanji at the start of the film reads "ichi-go ichi-e...

Is Wendy a good Architecture project? [VIDEO]

By HWKN. Marc Kushner and Matthias Hollwich.PS1 MoMA [NYC][VIDEO]
metalocus, INÉS LALUETA
This year’s winner of the MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program, Wendy is an innovative project that engages the current ecological problems at hand which face the field of architecture and beyond, ¿beyond? Ok. The project have a great idea however the aspect more interesting on this project is the material (an idea by Helen Storey y Tony Ryanan) for this reason, the question is clear, is the project, a good project?

Of course, Wendy increases the fabric surface area and increase the quality of air in the neighborhood (in comparation with jeans by Helen Storey), ie it is a big filter, the equivalent of removing 260 cars off the highway, but is it enough? to talk...

London aerial 1.

by Jason Hawkes [LON][VIDEO]
metalocus, PEDRO NAVARRO
The need for specialization is increasing, it is not enough only to be photographer, Jason Hawkes is one of those profiles that specializes in aerial photography. The London skyline is changing rapidly, driven largely by the celebration this summer of the Olympics, and because one of those most noticeable changes is generated by tall buildings, Jason Hawkes shows us a vision of London like Blade Runner's city.

this video takes as the reference axis The Shard building, designed by Renzo Piano, the building that once completed will have the dubious honor of being the tallest building in Europe. The tour also can identify other iconic elements of the city as the dome of the Cathedral "Saint Paul", the financial district of the City and Sir Norman Foster building popularly known as "The Gherkin", the big wheel, "London Eye" or the activity on...
