Festival of Ideas for the New City: Jaron Lanier Keynote "The City as Acuity Chamber"

(8 years ago)
If you haven't read You are Not a Gadget by Jaron Lanier yet, please do. Called by The New York Times as one of the "Best books of 2010," You Are Not a Gadget offers a powerful and thoughtful critique of Web 2.0 culture.Lanier is wary of human comparisons to machines. Coming from a roboticist, this is a stiff charge. The human eye has sensors responsive even to a single photon. Lanier calls this fineness of perception and mobility 'acuity': The ability of humans to finely adjust the information we actively seek. Compare this with a camera, which only passively receives information. In this sense, our vision functions less like a camera and more like a spy submarine, constantly gathering information about our surroundings.He asks: what if we apply this principle of human acuity to the level of the city? In that case, a city like New York can act as a kind of acuity chamber or amplifier. What a person experiences, even when walking down the street, is amplified in an urban environment like New York. The fates of people in a city like New York are intertwined with their acuity, more so than in, say for example, Omaha. (more...)

A New Canadian Wood Product Does More With Less

(8 years ago)
We've often heard the old adage that there is strength in numbers. But in the case of a new wood product from Canada, we've discovered that less really is more.Corelam™ is a unique wood product that uses less material to deliver equal (or greater) strength than typical plywood products of the same dimensions. The added stability comes from corrugation, which has been used for over a hundred years with metal and plastic, but has yet to be successfully applied to wood. Until now. (more...)

A French Architect in Tokyo: Colorful Creativity by Emma Moureaux

(8 years ago)
I'm starting to see a disturbing trend in the blogosphere, whereby amazing projects are featured with absolutely no mention made of the designer(s) behind them. A good case in point is the beautiful Sugamo Shinkin bank in Shimura, Japan, completed in March and designed by Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture + Design (and incorrectly credited on several sites as being by "Sugamo Shinkin Design," which does not exist). Though born and educated in France, Moureaux moved to Tokyo in the mid-'90s and acquired a Japanese First Class Architect's license by the early '00s.(more...)

Buxton Collection presents history of interactive devices

(8 years ago)
Over the past 30 years, designer, writer, and researcher Bill Buxton has been collecting input and interactive devices whose design struck him as interesting, useful, or important. In the process, he has assembled a good collection of the history of pen computing, pointing devices, touch technologies, as well as an illustration of the nature of how new technologies emerge.Part of the collection was first shown publicly at the Vancouver Art Gallery as part of the Massive Change Exhibition, curated by Bruce Mau, in 2004. Since then the collection has grown significantly, largely through the generous support of Microsoft Research (where he is Principal Researcher).Now it's all online on this exciting new website.(more...)

BrokenOff BrokenOff: David Weeks, "There is Something About Giving Into Your Desires"

(8 years ago)
As designers working in New York City, David Weeks and Tobias Wong had met on and off through industry gatherings like the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) and local New York exhibitions and events. In preparation for this week's opening of BrokenOff BrokenOff, Weeks shares memories of his first encounter with Wong over a vodka cocktail and the myth behind the inspiration for his tribute piece, "There is Something About Giving Into Your Desires."David Weeks: When I would first read about [Tobias Wong], they'd write about him like "the bad boy" or some sort of enfant terrible. And then once you've met him you're like, "oh, he's just a really smart, funny guy." Although we had met on and off at the ICFF and other things, my first real memory of him was when he did [Wrong Store, 2007] that storefront that wasn't really a storefront. Then he had a little vodka dispenser on his belt and he's squirting these funny cocktails. I think that was one of the first times I put it all together. And I loved it. It's like he's thumbing his finger at the industry, which is so rare, and frankly, I don't know anybody else that does it. He'll be missed for that for sure, but I think that was the first time I put him, his work, on the level of sense of humor and charm. Tobias Wong, "Wrong Store," 2007I think we had the same sense of humor on a lot of the different things—not taking this whole thing that seriously. [Tobias] did such a good job at meshing art and New[..]
