Algunos van a la playa, la montaña o viajan, pero otros prefieren utilizar su tiempo hackeando máquinas de tejer #Frikisporelpunto
In the past five or so years, knitting has resurfaced as a social and obsessive hobby. I however would much rather skip the ‘stitch and bitch’ and hack a machine to knit scarves for me. Taking an old knitting machine that runs off of floppy disks, Fabienne reverse engineered a system that allows her to ‘print’ almost any pattern with yard. If you are interested in creating your own knitting machine, there are open source tools available online to help you hack your way into a new hobby.
#PrivateMoon_Project: La historia romántica entre el hombre y la luna #Russia #Art
Russian artists Leonid Tishkov and Boris Bendikov created a fantastic world illuminated with the moonlight where they tried to convey relations between the man and the Moon. This is a romantic story about a man who met the Moon and decided to stay with it forever. They named the installation ‘Private Moon’.
Tokyo 1955–1970: A New Avant-Garde at MoMA, 300 works by 60 artists #Japan
With roughly three hundred works by some sixty artists, “Tokyo 1955–1970” presents an extensive roster of art produced in the capital of Japan during this key period. The exhibition .. encompasses not only Gutai, Anti-Art, and Non-Art—movements that have been well known in the US for some time—but also aspects of postwar Japanese art hitherto less known in the Western Hemisphere, including the graphic realism of Hiroshi Nakamura and Tiger Tateishi and intermedia projects by the collective Jikken Kōbō (Experimental Workshop). The heterogeneity of material in the show—ranging from painting, sculpture, photography, and film to performance, design, and architecture—demonstrates that the history of the avant-garde in Tokyo was not monolithic, but instead made up of multiple compelling narratives that paralleled other developments in radical art around the globe. — Reiko Tomii, ArtForum
