(no)where (now)here *

nowhere_s.jpg

fashion designer ying gao has fabricated a pair of dresses that writhe around and light up when someone stares at them. with the lights off they create an effect similar to glowing sea creatures. the project was inspired by the essay entitled "esthétique de la disparition" (the aesthetic of disappearance) by paul virilio (1979). "absence often occurs at breakfast time - the tea cup dropped, then spilled on the table being one of its most common consequences. absence lasts but a few seconds, its beginning and end are sudden. however closed to outside impressions, the senses are awake. the return is as immediate as the departure, the suspended word or movement is picked up where it was left off as conscious time automatically reconstructs itself, thus becoming continuous and free of any apparent interruption." the series comprising 2 dresses, made of photoluminescent thread and eye tracking technology, is activated by spectators' gaze. a photograph is said to be spoiled by blinking eyes - here however, the concept of presence and of disappearance are questioned, as the experience of chiaroscuro (clarity/obscurity) is achieved through an unfixed gaze.

mobile shelter *

walking shelter is a mobile habitat that pops out of a pair of sneakers. conceived by design collective sibling, the sneakers accommodate a fully-functioning tent, stored compactly in integrated, netted pockets within the sides of the shoe. the shelter expands out from the back of the footwear and fits around the human body, forming a billowing capsule that encloses the user in tented material. the adapted habitat relies on the human frame as a supporting structure, an alternative to nomadic or urban living.

apple campus 2 *

apple_campus_s.png

apple's campus 2 mega-project is showing major progress in its "spaceship" ring, where interlocking concrete slabs are building a foundation for a steel structure that is already beginning to reach upward by four stories. the company continues to operate eight office groups on the east side of n tantau ave (which is the eastern boundary of the campus 2 site), along with at least four other office blocks between e homestead road (the north boundary of campus 2) and stevens creek blvd, not including two other large office sites on vallco parkway, which is located south of the 280 freeway (the south boundary of campus 2). all of these buildings are within cupertino, just west of the boundary of the adjacent city of santa clara. not only does the campus want to enhance worker productivity, it will do so while setting a new standard for sustainable design. when completed, the campus will be composed of 80 percent green space and will be powered by 100 percent renewable sources, including one of the largest solar arrays in the world. the project is scheduled for completion next year at an estimated cost of $5 billion.

golden ratio *

apple_s.jpg

some twentieth-century artists and architects, including le corbusier and dalí, have proportioned their works to approximate the golden ratio - especially in the form of the golden rectangle, in which the ratio of the longer side to the shorter is the golden ratio - believing this proportion to be aesthetically pleasing.
