Elevator video...

This video, Civilization by Marco Brambilla, makes me want to drop everything and go into motion graphics. Beautiful stuff.

The history of Somerville, 2010-2100

What will the future hold for Somerville? We're trying to figure that out, and we need your help!

"The history of Somerville, 2010-2100" is an art project that explores what the future might be like. If you'd like to participate, please let us know any of the following:

1. What do you think (or hope, or fear) you will personally be doing in the future? And when you think it will happen by? (Will you buy a condo in Union Square in 2043? Will you have twins in 2011? Will your unborn child become a famous pianist in 2074?)

2. What you think (or hope, or fear) Somerville will be like in the future? (Will there be hi-rise apartment buildings in Davis Square? Will the plague strike? Will your neighborhood be gentrified? When?)
Tell us a story! Draw us a picture! Make us a map! All participants will receive full credit for their images, concepts, stories, and data; they will also receive a copy of the illustrated timeline that we will produce.

We can be reached at future.of.somerville@gmail.com , and our website is here .
We hope to hear from you!

------------------------------------------------------------------------

All information received by June 30, 2009 will be included in our presentation at Davis Square's Artbeat Festival in July 2009. This presentation will include a lecture; a Future Information table; and an illustrated timeline that you can take home with you.

All information received by December 31, 2009 will be available for all to see on our website.

This project is organized by Tim Devin, and is sponsored in part by the Somerville Arts Council. Click here to see our Facebook group page.

Canon

"The international Standard paper sizes, called the A series, is based on a golden rectangle, the divine proportion. It is extremely handsome and practical as well. It is adopted by many countries around the world and is based on the German DIN metric Standards. The United States uses a basic letter size (8 1/2 x 11”)  
of ugly proportions, and results in complete chaos with an endless amount of paper sizes. It is a by-product of the culture of free enterprise, competition and waste. Just another example of the misinterpretations of freedom."

From the hot new free pdf by and about Massimo Vignelli.

Seen at SwissMiss.

Wyeth, gone.



Painter Andrew Wyeth died today. I spent some time on one of his islands in Maine once, or at least I heard he owned it.

The past few days I've been thinking about all the social injustice in the world, upset and disappointed by colonialism, imperialism, etc... and looking hopeful for the inauguration of Obama and all that it means for our country... and today Sinead O'Connor's cover of Bob Marley's War came up on my iPod. It seems very apropos.

Here is her acapella version made famous by her controversial assault on the photo of the Pope on Saturday Night Live. And here she is with the reggae back up band.

Here are the lyrics:

Until the philosophy,
which holds one race superior
and another inferior,
is finally and permanently
discredited and abandoned,
everywhere is war.

Until there is no longer first class
or second class citizens of any nation.
Until the color of a man’s skin,
is of no more significance then
the color of his eyes,
I’ve got to say "war".

That until the basic human rights,
are equally guaranteed to all,
without regard to race,
I’ll say "war"

Until that day the dream of lasting peace,
world-citizenship and the rule of
international morality will remain
just a fleeting illusion to be pursued,
but never obtained.
And everywhere is war.

Until the ignoble and unhappy regime
which holds all of us through,
child-abuse, yeah, child-abuse yeah,
sub-human bondage has been toppled,
utterly destroyed,
everywhere is war.

war in the east,
war in the west,
war up north,
war down south,
there is war,
and the rumors of war.

Until that day,
there is no continent,
which will know peace.

children, children.

Fight!

We find it necessary.
we know we will win.
we have confidence in the victory
of good over evil


FIGHT THE REAL ENEMY !

Holiday Craftyness

I am not into a lot of holiday decoration things.. but this little paper-craft project from SwissMiss is so nice, I will have to make one myself. Go to her site to get started on your own.

Back

Lots of stuff been going on out here these days: got laid off, hunted for job, did alotta art work, made portfolios like crazy, got new job, holidays hit.. etc.

Short story is... the Blog has been on a little hiatus. I will get back into posting again.. with this! Also, hope to make some new Rise Industries things happen in early 2009.

As far as that goes, member Tim has been feverishly making his excellent art-zine "I Left This Here For You To Read", and has brought me on a bit to help out and edit some issues. His first ones are done, and he just sent some my way to distribute in Los Angeles. I suggest you get involved, as that is the best way to actually get your hands on one! The project is really great, and has been getting some press already. He has blogged about it here in his own posts, so I will let those fill you in. Or go to the website for it.

Colorful Maps

I go this email from my friend Josh today:

"We were thinking last night Obama's electoral college margin of victory was looking pretty impressive, and given the last couple of elections it is obviously is. But I found this site that shows all the presidential electoral returns in our country's history, and really Obama's margin probably doesn't even rank in the top third (I didn't do the math). You only have to go back to Reagan v Mondale to find near unimaginable dominance, a 525 to 13 walloping! The biggest margin of victory I found, though, goes to FDR in 1936 over Alfred Landon (You remember him right? With the beard? And the thing?) 523 to 8 (remember Alaska and Hawaii's 7 votes weren't available as they were just territories then)! Jefferson also had a landslide victory back in the day (1804), as well as an electoral tie (1800) with Aaron Burr! Cool stuff.

Happy New Paradigm, everyone!
Josh"
