Sebastian Errazuriz Triggers Contagious Yawning in Times Square

Unbeige - Wed, 01/07/2015 - 13:17

The glowing, blinking, buzzing, bustling crossroads that is New York’s Times Square doesn’t lack for much—except serenity. Artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz is looking to inject calm into the chaos this month with A Pause in the City That Never Sleeps. Created for the Midnight Moment initiative, which synchronizes electronic billboards and newspaper kiosks throughout Times Square to display creative content nightly from 11:57 to midnight, in partnership with Performance Space 122’s COIL 2015 Festival, the work is a black and white moving image of a bored-looking man who peers down at the passing crowds and yawns, repeatedly. Sound like a yawn? Not until you remember how contagious—and calming—a yawn can be.

“To be able to trigger in the audience a positive contagious physical reaction, an involuntary mass yawning performance, and to plant a brief sensation of much-needed rest in thousands of people is a fascinating possibility,” says Chilean-born Errazuriz, who lives and works in New York with parallel workshops in Santiago. “It is our intrinsic empathic quality that makes yawning contagious, and empathy is a scarce quality in New York City. I like the idea of imagining families of tourists fascinated by the flickering NYC lights suddenly finding themselves yawning and deciding its maybe time to go back to the hotel and spend some family time together.”

Quote of Note | Olafur Eliasson

Unbeige - Wed, 01/07/2015 - 10:11

(Olafur Eliasson)“[J.M.W.] Turner’s ability to shape and frame light in his paintings has had a significant impact on my work….In the Turner color experiments, I’ve isolated light and color in Turner’s works in order to extract his sense of ephemera from the objects of desire that his paintings have become. The schematic arrays of colors on round canvases generate a feeling of endlessness and allow the viewer to take in the artwork in a decentralized, meandering way.”

Olafur Eliasson, whose new series of paintings in response to the work of J.M.W. Turner are on view at Tate Britain through January 25, 2015

freersacklerThe museum collection digitization boom continues! Following the lead of institutions such as The Getty, the Smithsonian’s Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery kicked off the new year by releasing their full collections online. Translation: more than 40,000 masterpieces of Asian and American art (the vast majority of which have never been on public display) are now available for free public use. Thumbnails these are not. More than 90 percent of the images will be available in high resolution and without copyright restrictions. In the initial release, each work is represented by one or more highly detailed images at the highest possible resolution, with some available for download as digital wallpaper. So stop what you’re doing and outfit your laptop, tablet, and smartphone with the frolicking—or possibly warring—gilded peacocks from James McNeill Whistler‘s famed Peacock Room.

Apply to SVA’s MA in Design Research

It was the great design scholar Ferris Bueller who once said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” New York’s School of Visual Arts has heeded the need for speed and the importance of looking around with a one-year MA in design research, writing, and criticism. The graduate program, which launched earlier this year, is an evolution of D-Crit (the two-year MA program in design criticism that has been sharpening design minds since 2008) streamlined into two semesters and eight months of studying images, objects, and environments, and learning ways to construct multi-format narratives that bring them to life from a faculty that includes Steven Heller, MoMA’s Paola Antonelli, and Murray Moss. “The program’s curriculum charts the cutting edge of design practice and is responsive to exciting developments in the media landscape,” says Alice Twemlow, the program’s founding chair. Applications are now being accepted for the fall 2015 class (Psst: we hear significant scholarships are available), with a “priority deadline” of January 15. Tell ‘em UnBeige sent you.

100 Designers, 100 Years: A Collectible Celebration of AIGA’s Centennial

aigaWhere can you find new yet (relatively) historical work by Milton Glaser, Michael Bierut, Chip Kidd, Tom Geismar, Paula Scher, Abbott Miller, Gail Anderson, Stephen Doyle, Carin Goldberg, Alexander Isley, and ninety other design luminaries? In the insta-collection created to commemorate the AIGA’s centennial. One hundred designers—a mix of AIGA medalists, fellows, and presidents from across the country—were asked to select a year from 1914 to 2014 and design a social, political, or cultural statement about that year. The printing wizards at MOO then transformed their works into a hefty, century-spanning stack of suitable-for-framing flyers that is yours for $30 (plus $5 shipping), with a percentage of proceeds going to the AIGA Legacy Fund.

Leip(zig) into the New Year!

Happy 2015! As you celebrate the new year and encase your Massimo Vignelli-themed, 2014-capping “The Lives They Lived” issue of The New York Times Magazine in protective plastic, take a moment to remember the life and career of photographer Arthur Leipzig, who died earlier this month at the age of 96. The Brooklyn native captured this invigorating image in 1948, several years after he began photographing New York children a play, a project inspired by Children’s Games, a 1560 painting by Flemish master Pieter Bruegel the Elder, notes Douglas Martin in the photographer’s New York Times obituary, adding, “Mr. Leipzig was intrigued, he said, that the games played in Renaissance-era Flanders were similar to the ones he observed outside his window.”

Finally Free of Scaffolding, L.A.’s Broad Museum Comes into Full View

Let others revel in the swiftly fading highlights of 2014; we prefer to look forward to the art and design milestones of 2015. The view became a bit clearer today, even in smog-prone Los Angeles, with the removal of the final scaffolding from the exterior facade of the Broad, Eli and Edythe Broad‘s $140 million contemporary art museum in the making on Grand Avenue, to reveal the full “veil” wrapping the Diller Scofidio + Renfro-designed building.

Don’t be fooled by its perforated appearance and wispy name: the veil is a structural exoskeleton comprised of 2,500 fiberglass-reinforced concrete panels and 650 tons of steel designed to “drape” over The Broad and appear to lift up at the south and north corners to define two street-level entrances. The Grand Avenue side of the veil (pictured) is punctured by an architectural feature that DSR calls “the oculus.”

Year-End Zen: Watch How Ink Is Made

Unbeige - Tue, 12/30/2014 - 20:26

ink blobIf we learned anything from Sesame Street, it was that Manhattan is a land where children not only keep llamas as pets but also take said mammals to avuncular dentists (it’s little wonder we ended up living here) and that most any industrial process could be made fascinating and quasi-educational through careful editing and the appropriate soundtrack. And so, as you busy yourself with plans to ring in the 2015—with or without your pet llama and/or dentist—enjoy this soothing look at how ink is made, courtesy of the good people at Canada’s Printing Ink Company and Beethoven‘s Emperor concerto, his last for the piano.
