Building Geometry - Gallery Talk
The curators of Building Geometry, Andrew Witt and Noam Andrews, invite the GSD community to a lunchtime gallery talk and discussion on the exhibition. The event will further question received narratives of contemporary digital design process suggested by the exhibit, and provide material for a polemic reconsideration of technique and objectivity in design culture. Each curator will present a framework for engaging the exhibition, and respond to questions from each other and the audience on the past and future role of mathematical models for design. Dan Borelli, Director of Exhibitions at the GSD, will join and moderate the discussion.

MUSA for Teenagers
This film was written, produced, filmed and directed by MUSA's Youth Curators to tell us what aspects of MUSA they think will appeal to teenagers and what we might need to change. They've made some really fantastic suggestions and have told us that it would be brilliant to reduce the amount of writing, make things more colourful and try to make some things more eye-catching. They've also said that they love the interactivity at MUSA and think that the things that are bright and well laid out are great. As the Youth Curators know, many of the things they've suggested can't be done easily or quickly at MUSA. BUT their time hasn't been wasted; their ideas will influence our temporary exhibitions and, when the time is right, will be kept very much in mind when changes to MUSA are made. Their thoughts are also being used to help develop a number of other projects that we're currently working on (some of them a bit hush, hush, more about them another time), so their ideas are a massive help.

"What Was Contemporary Art?: An Introduction"
THE DR. ALLEN W. ROOT CONTEMPORARY ART DISTINGUISHED LECTURESHIP Richard Meyer, Associate Professor, Art History and Fine Arts Director, The Contemporary Project University of Southern California Contemporary art in the early twenty-first century is often discussed as though it were a radically new phenomenon unmoored from history. Yet all works of art were once contemporary to the artist and culture that produced them. Here Richard Meyer reclaims the contemporary from historical amnesia, exploring episodes in the study, exhibition, and reception of early-twentieth-century art and visual culture.

How to start and stop the Transborder Immigrant Tool White Cube demo version
Mostly for curators, preparators, docents or anyone who has purchased a copy of the gallery/installation/demo version and (conceptual poetry cycle) of the Transborder Immigrant Tool project, which was a 2010 California Biennial selection. (This is the version of the demo that was in that exhibition.) We are happy to make you your own copy of this demo (Software, 6 phones + power cords) as a thank you for a sufficient donation to Water Station Inc, so that they can continue working to place water in the Sonoran Desert in San Diego and Imperial counties, CA, USA. They perform this service to assist anyone who is lost and thirsty for whatever reason. Undocumented immigrants, off highway vehicle enthusiasts, desert motorists and hikers/backpackers have all been assisted or even saved by these volunteers who spend their summers establishing and tending these water safety sites. So your donation that supplies water and service for the safety stations means a lot. (There are also less extravagant, single phone versions. Please be in touch for a suggested donation amount.) Note that this is not the actual Transborder Immigrant Tool. But it does use the same walkingtools.net compass interface. But otherwise, it is really very different software: the aesthetic demo version. One secret to reveal here is that in order to simulate the GPS compass interface, we had to develop a "fake GPS" class that the compass registers with to receive the (fake) GPS coordinates for the non-gps gallery demo. Essentially, inside of each phone is a simulated walker, so that the demo project actually shows progress toward a goal (the distance to the target on the GPS compass gets smaller and smaller as it runs) and an arrival message is displayed once this imaginary software hiker arrives at the goal. For the purposes of the GPS compass, we had to choose a location, (a latitude and longitude), for the software hiker to walk toward and eventually arrive at. So, imagining any of the undocumented immigrants who the United States has asked to come here and work - on condition of surviving a dangerous walk through the desert - we thought it was most appropriate for these imaginary software hikers to be converging on the coordinates of State Capital of Arizona. In a symbolic sense, all six of the phones in this video are converging on the birthplace of the racist SB1070 legislation that tries to make life hard not only on the many people we invite to work here without papers, but also those American citizens who might look like them. Shame on you Arizona.

What's In and What's Out
James Dixon (1887- 1970) was a primitive landscape painter from Tory Island an island off the north west corner of Ireland. He began painting very late in life at the age of 72, having viewed an exhibition of the artist Derek Hill. He was the forerunner of what has become known as the Tory school of painting which is active to the present day. When viewed within the context of Irish and European art Dixon is firmly rooted in the non traditional approach as is reflected in his choice of materials, technique and artistic vision.Dixon painted his environment in a traditional way but with very untraditional materials reflected by the additions on the surface. His materials involved the combination of paint layers and ethnographic objects found on the island. His technique often complemented the natural surface of the island using the materials such as earth mixed with a paint layer to give the texture of sand on coastal regions of his paintings. The paper support was manipulated to create grooves as found in a ploughed field. These techniques and materials create a degree of difficulty in making choices about the conservation of the work.

NOVA scienceNOW : 45 - Phoenix Mars Lander, Brain Trauma, Mammoth Mystery, Profile: Judah Folkman
Phoenix Mars Lander - 01:55 With behind-the-scenes access, NOVA scienceNOW covers the Mars lander Phoenix's thrilling descent to the martian surface and its critical early days of operations. Phoenix will dig into the permafrost to obtain samples of martian dirt and ice for analysis in onboard labs, seeking any evidence that the Red Planet might once have sustained microbial life—or perhaps still does. Brain Trauma - 14:20 Knocks to the head may seem funny in cartoons, sports replays, and YouTube videos, but even minor head injuries often lead to serious concussions. A concussion may leave no trace on a conventional MRI scan yet cause permanent memory loss, attention problems, and depression. NOVA scienceNOW investigates promising new leads in understanding this puzzling condition, which affects millions of people in the U.S., including many high-school and college athletes who suffer concussions yet are encouraged to return to the playing field. Mammoth Mystery - 26:13 In 1962, paleontologists uncovered the rarest of Ice Age fossils in the Nebraska badlands: two complete male mammoths locked in a death grip by their 12-foot-long tusks. What made them fight? And why did they die together? Following forensic clues, paleontologists determine the sex and age of the mammoths, the time of year of their deadly battle, and how their violent clash doomed them. Profile: Judah Folkman - 38:30 Dr. Judah Folkman, who died in 2008 at age 74, was a giant in the field of cancer research. He wasn't always considered a trailblazer, however. In the 1970s, when he first proposed that cancer depends critically on new blood vessel growth, or angiogenesis, other medical researchers ridiculed his ideas. But Folkman proved his theory of angiogenesis, and today it has led not just to cancer therapies but also to treatments for other diseases of abnormal blood vessel growth, such as macular degeneration.

"Taste the Difference" - Stephen Cummins (1989) - banned TV commercial
The history : In October 1989, Melbourne film-makers Anne-Marie Crawford and Chris Windmill invited Stephen Cummins to take part in a project entitled 'Personal Ads: 30 seconds of fame', as part of the ARX Festival in Perth. Eight film-makers were commissioned to make 30 second Super 8 films to be screened within commercial breaks during a late night Joan Collins film on Perth's Channel 9. Western Australia was at the time going through the final battles surrounding the decriminalization of homosexuality, so Stephen decided that the best product to be 'sold' on WA TV at this time was a gay kiss. He suggested the title 'Enjoy the Difference', which composer Simon Hunt suggested be changed to 'Taste the Difference'. The ad was filmed on Super 8 film with performers Chris Ryan and Herb Robertson, and music by composer Simon Hunt. FACTS, the federal advertising self-regulation body, passed TASTE THE DIFFERENCE as being suitable for late night viewing, but Channel Nine station manager Les Downes saw things differently, banning the ad from broadcast. He said that the ban was imposed because of the 'explicit nature' of the kiss. 'We were not discriminating', he said, 'even a man and a woman kissing in this way might have upset certain viewers.' Written protests were made by the project's curators; by Stephen; and by Perth gay groups, but the ad was not screened in Western Australia. On November 17th, 1989, the SBS program Eat Carpet screened all eight of the Personal Ads, including 'Taste The Difference'. Unfortunately they miscued the videotapes. As a result, host Annette Shun Wah summarised the controversy over 'Taste the Difference' before playing filmmaker Dirk De Bruyn's video instead. It showed the shadow of a young boy playing 'totem tennis', with a looped voiceover of 'daddy daddy, look at me!'. The mistake was rectified the following week, and 'Taste the Difference' was played. Homosexuality was decriminalised in Western Australia in 1989.

"Sacred Visions in Art and Design" Avila Chicago Fine Arts Lovers
Sherry Avila talks with Artist David Csicsko. David Lee Csicsko is breathing new life into an age-old medium: stained glass. The artist and former Hammond resident has his work in stained glass and glass mosaics on display through Aug. 26 at the Loyola University Museum of Art in Chicago, in an exhibit entitled, "David Lee Csicsko: Sacred Visions in Art and Design." "This show is all about my work in stained glass over the last 10 years," said Csicsko, who now resides in Chicago. The artist is well-known for designing leaded-glass windows in area churches such as St. Benedict the African East and St. Ailbe, both of which are in Chicago. Csicsko has pulled inspiration for his work in stained glass from his love for African tribal art, which he began collecting in the early 1990s. "I am so inspired by African tribal art; it so alive, full of haunting power," said Csicsko, 50. Csicsko said he was looking for a way to capture the emotion and drama of African art in a new, inventive way. "I didn't want to be another white artist doing an impression of African art," he said. Csicsko said he turned to the stories of the saints, where he found great things to draw and depict. He began with silk-screen prints featuring figures drawn with big, black lines around the faces. Someone suggested he try re-creating the images in stained glass. His first commission was for Loyola University, where he did a stained-glass image of Ignatius of Loyola, the university's namesake. That first piece led to additional work, in particular in African-American Catholic churches, where the work seemed a natural fit. "I always wanted to show how collecting African art influenced me as an artist," he said. The Loyola exhibit features 130 pieces, including five stained-glass windows lit from behind. It also includes photographs and documents of his mosaics, along with pieces of African art that have served as his inspiration. Frank & Sherry Avila
