Jenny Sabin Studio at House of Peroni

19 October, 2018 - 21:33
Last night I attended the opening of LUSTER, an installation designed by Jenny Sabin Studio and curated by Art Production Fund for House of Peroni. LUSTER transformed the top floor at 463 West Street (part of Westbeth Artist Housing - PDF link) into a pop-up bar for a few days, after which the piece will travel to LA, Miami, and DC this fall. Before the party got going Jenny Sabin spoke with Christoph a. Kumpusch about the installation and the work of her studio based in Ithaca.


Sabin's work came to my attention, like most people I'm guessing, when she won the MoMA PS1 YAP last year with Lumen, a lightweight canopy of digitally knitted, robotically woven, photo-luminescent, solar-active yarns. Unfortunately, I only saw Lumen during the day, not at night when it glowed in various colors. Thankfully, last night's discussion took place just after sunset, when LUSTER's color-changing lighting kicked in, distracting me from whatever Sabin and Kumpusch were saying. See the roughly one-hour color-transformation in the slideshow below.

Cross-Stitch Murals Bring a Traditionally Domestic Craft Out Into the World

19 October, 2018 - 19:02
[ By SA Rogers in Art & Street Art & Graffiti. ]

Often viewed as the domain of women within the home, the art of cross-stitch embroidery escapes its boundaries and finds a new footing within the modern world in works by Aheneah, also known as Ana Martins. The 22-year-old Portuguese artist and graphic embroiderer fell in love with textiles while working on her bachelor’s degree in graphic design, and now she works to “deconstruct, decontextualize and transform a traditional technique into a modern graphic, connecting cultures and generations.”

Observatorio de Arquitectura del CSCAE

19 October, 2018 - 14:10

El pasado 17 de octubre se presentó un ambicioso proyecto el Observatorio de Arquitectura del CSCAE, un espacio de reflexión y acción sobre el presente y el futuro de la arquitectura, la ciudad y el territorio, puesto en marcha para apoyar el impulso de los objetivos del Desarrollo Sostenible (ODS) en nuestro país.

La importancia y el número de miembros del Observatorio es señal de que los organizadores son conscientes de que la arquitectura, la cuidad y el territorio y su futuro afecta a todos los niveles de la sociedad. Cómo vamos a vivir, cómo nos vamos a relacionar con nuestro entorno es cultura, es ciencia, es economía, es salud y en todo ello la arquitectura, como actividad que integra muchas facetas, tiene mucho que aportar y tiene que hacerlo con rigor y determinación.

En la presentación Lluís Comerón, Presidente del CSCAE, destacó que estamos viviendo un cambio de época que deviene en nuevas necesidades, tanto personales como colectivas. El reto de la gestión energética de las ciudades, del acceso a la vivienda, de la adaptación de lo construido a las nuevas exigencias y a la nueva población… Para encontrar respuestas son imprescindibles las alianzas y el trabajo coordinado teniendo en cuenta múltiples perspectivas. Y para lograr estos objetivos el arquitecto tiene mucho que decir, como señaló Comerón: “Cumplimos una misión social, que es lo que siempre ha dado sentido a nuestro trabajo”.
