    Charity workers (Zoe's Arc) remain in prison and have been in Darfur and Chad since mid October, 07. The prison has graphiti on the walls, no windows and stone slabs for beds. Two of the Zoe's Arc Charity workers are women.

    YouTube has some videos about this although no mention of the groups current state of health and well being. The 74 Year Old Belgian Pilot had a heart attack due to exteme dehydration. He was air lifted to a hospital. I'm finding the media reporting that this group was involved in "selling" children," in child trafficing and kidnapping, these words come from the officials of Chad.

    Where are reports about Zoe's Arc's intentions of rescuing these children and how can these 6 people be heard above the rumble of false accusations and curses. Words that have caused riots outside of the prison.

    I am holding a clear focus that this group will be able to return home to France for trial. Has anyone been following this issue? What can be done to assist the children of this war-torn area as well as other refugee areas of the world.

  • Utrecht Manifest: 2nd Bienniale for Social Design

    Communication, Communication Design

    Utrechtmanifest_177_

    Utrecht Manifest is an international cultural biennial, which perceives contemporary developments in design and architecture from a social perspective.

    The biennial shows how architecture and design, in the past and present, have looked for answers to social and cultural questions connected to innovation, quality and sustainability.

    The biennial searches for connections between design, architecture and other cultural expressions such as film, theatre and literature, in order to stimulate the public and political debate. The aim is to reinforce the role of design and architecture in developing coherent agendas for social and cultural innovation.

    The biennial’s theme is Modernism’s legacy. At the start of the previous century, this movement in the arts, architecture and design formulated a new socially inspired aesthetics, based on modern, technological-industrial methods. After the critique of Postmodernism, does Modernism still exert influence? Is modernism’s social agenda still relevant?

    Doing good while enriching oneself as well. Maybe it is old news for some of you, but I mention it anyway because the idea is so great. FreeRice is a website with an English language game. Each good answer is awarded with 10 grains of rice for the UN World Food Program.

    The FreeRice game asks the player each time to choose the right synonym for difficult English words like dystopia, truncheon or lithe. The right answer fills 10 grains of rice in a rice bowl on the right. Between 7 October and 25 November already over 3,8 billion rice grains have been collected. We added a few thousend already at our studio too. Paid for by friendly advertisers like Time, Fujitsu and Apple that are displayed very modestly. What a worldly idea!

    Communication, Audio/Visual Design

    Not a good start for a blog but I was really upset to see that the closing date for submissions to the Stories from the Field logo competition was changed without notice to the 25th. I would have loved to participate. Please see what I had wanted to submit under "Work Samples".

  • Supposedly only 20% of graduated design students become designers. Interesting, what happens to the other 80%?

    The hype is on, the policies in place, the budgets are in place: Sustainability is in full swing.

    Good, very usefull and very needed. But then it comes to product design. When you design a product you are creating a product, you are gonna produce it, create pollution and make people throw their old version to the bin. Doesn't sound very sustainable to me. I would say that the best thng we designers can do is stop designing. Just use your old TV, bathtub, MP3 player, bag, shoes etc.

    Easier and cheaper!

  • SCULPTURE AND MYTH

    Arts & Culture

    Lkji_132_

    The world of phenomena, life of thoughts, every day is transforming into something more, in something which we call another world. That something new, something different become my new reality in which I am, and in which I came throw observing and living our fears, our fights, magnitude and hopes; living our own myths which always made like that, which are needs to surpass evil and nothappiens, which are also collective memories. Those myths are fight of man to overrun him, to be closer to enternity, they are need for man like stories for kids, the collective dream to understand life. The value of myth are never refuted, it always been a real opportunity to understand reality, and it is not possible to not find name in art which isn’t whit his work go thro mythological, and exactly in that looking for way for his realize. One of that ways, like was said Djuzzepe Mazzini “is looking for idea hidden in symbol “, which in my case will be liberated idea from sculpture from drawing, from performance, from word. Waking up from collective ream I was met myself in a big measure with that mythological in man, in women, which aspire to be exceeded. Feeling transformation of that cognition of reality, I was going throw deep roots of material as spiritual. Together with my sculptures I felt transformation of female, mythological, physical, in to something more, in o a bird, like symbol of freedom, like symbol of something knowing, entirety. Meeting with myself – women and women- surrou...
