Curator's Perspective: "Vincent van Gogh and Japan"
 
01:02:43
Presented by Simon Kelly, curator of modern and contemporary art, Saint Louis Art Museum The Post-Impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh was intensely fascinated with the art and culture of Japan. Over the course of his career, Van Gogh painted copies of Japanese ukiyo-e prints and collected a range of Japanese art. Join lecturer Simon Kelly for a talk that examines the impact of japonisme on the artistic development of Van Gogh, including his use of the formal devices of ukiyo-e and the parallels that Van Gogh drew between Japan and the Provence region of France. See Van Gogh's work in Looking East: Western Artists and the Allure of Japan through May 11.

DEF CON 22 - Richard Thieme - The Only Way to Tell the Truth is in Fiction

Slides Here:https://defcon.org/images/defcon-22/dc-22-presentations/Theime/DEFCON-22-Theime-Truth-Through-Fiction-Updated.pdf The Only Way to Tell the Truth is in Fiction: The Dynamics of Life in the National Security State Richard Thieme THIEMEWORKS Over a decade ago, a friend at the National Security Agency told Richard Thieme that he could address the core issues they discussed in a context of "ethical considerations for intelligence and security professionals" only if he wrote fiction. "It's the only way you can tell the truth," he said. Three dozen published short stories and one novel-in-progress (FOAM) later, one result is "Mind Games," published in 2010 by Duncan Long Publishing, a collection of stories that illuminates “non-consensual realities:” the world of hackers; the worlds of intelligence professionals; encounters with other intelligent life forms; and deeper states of consciousness. A recent scholarly study of “The Covert Sphere” by Timothy Melley documents the way the growth and influence of the intelligence community since World War 2 has created precisely the reality to which that NSA veteran pointed. The source of much of what “outsiders” believe is communicated through novels, movies, and television programs. But even IC “insiders” rely on those sources as compartmentalization prevents the big picture from coming together because few inside have a “need to know.” Thieme asked a historian at the NSA what historical events they could discuss with a reasonable expectation that their words denoted the same details. “Anything up to 1945,” the historian said with a laugh – but he wasn’t kidding. Point taken. This fascinating presentation illuminates the mobius strip on which all of us walk as we make our way through the labyrinth of security and intelligence worlds we inhabit of necessity, all of us some of the time and some of us all of the time. It discloses why “post-modernism” is not an affectation but a necessary condition of modern life. It addresses the words of an NSA intelligence analyst who responded to one of Thieme’s stories by saying, “most of this isn’t fiction, but you have to know which part to have the key to the code.” This talk does not provide that key, but it does provide the key to the key. It also throws into relief everything else you hear – whether from the platform or in the hallways – inside this conference. And out there in the “real world.” “Nothing is what it seems.” Richard Thieme is an author and professional speaker focused on the challenges posed by new technologies and the future, how to redesign ourselves to meet these challenges, and creativity in response to radical change and identify shift. His column, "Islands in the Clickstream," was distributed to subscribers in sixty countries before collection as a book in 2004. When a friend at the NSA said, "The only way you can tell the truth is through fiction," he returned to writing stories, 19 of which are collected in “Mind Games.” He is co-author of the critically acclaimed “UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry,” a 5-year research project using material exclusively from government documents and other primary sources, now in 50 university libraries. Speeches based on the book have been given for HITB-KL, an FBI/Infragard “superconference,” the Ryerson Astronomical Society at the University of Chicago, the Chicago Astronomical Society at Adler Planetarium, and dozens of libraries. A novel, FOAM, is in progress and “A Richard Thieme Reader” will be published soon. His work has been taught at universities in Europe, Australia, Canada, and the United States, and he has guest lectured at numerous universities, including Purdue University (CERIAS), the Technology, Literacy and Culture Distinguished Speakers Series of the University of Texas, the “Design Matters” lecture series at the University of Calgary, “The Real Truth: A World’s Fair” at Raven Row Gallery, London, and as a Distinguished Lecturer in Telecommunications Systems Management at Murray State University. He addressed the reinvention of “Europe” as a “cognitive artifact” for curators and artists at Museum Sztuki in Lodz, Poland.

That Famous “Ferguson Hug” Photo Was Reportedly Staged (and Complete Bulls**t)
 
03:40
The image is striking: Devonte Hart—a 12-year-old black boy—is being embraced by Brett Barnum, an older white police officer during a demonstration in Portland, Ore. last week. Indeed, the “Ferguson Hug” has become an iconic image from the nationwide protests following the decision not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting of Michael Brown, a symbol of unity in a period marked by a striking divisiveness along largely racial lines. But what if it this “perfect” image was essentially fake, or at the very least entirely disingenuous? That’s what Portland photographer Alex Riedlinger suggested to the Visionary Futures tumblr, saying that the picture of Hart and Barnum is strategically cropped in order to mask the fact that the hug was hardly an organic moment. Here are two pictures Riedlinger took from a distance, before the hug photo was taken.

Daniel Wilson Performs "Boy Who Cried Thunder" Live in the Studio
 
04:09
When we premiered Daniel Wilson’s debut song “Will You” in December of 2013, we were immediately struck by his unique, effervescent voice, but we had no idea if the excellent song would be a one-off. Now, with his second EP just released, it’s clear that Wilson is a talented songwriter who is keen to explore different styles with each new song. Whether it’s airy folk or driving synth-pop, everything Daniel Wilson has released so far his been top quality, so we invited him in to perform a song live for us, and then sat down for a chat about his new EP, his influences, and his plans for the future. The Boy Who Cried Thunder EP is out now. Buy it here. How would you describe your new EP? Well, it’s bigger than the first, and it just has this overall theme of relationships gone wrong. The first EP had a similar vibe, but I wanted to dive into that a little more with Boy Who Cried Thunder. It’s about one relationship I had last year, and the words mean a lot to me, even though they might come off as simple. So you write a lot from personal experience? I guess with Boy Who Cried Thunder, I liked the idea of roles being reversible. A theme with a lot of the songs on this EP is going back and forth between myself being the misguided one and sometimes the ex being the misguided one. I feel like with that, it’s relatable, but not in a cheesy way. I wanted all the songs to have a raw feeling. What kind of artists and genres have you been listening to recently that have inspired you? Lately, I’ve been listening to a lot of Kate Bush. Like, some songs are so out there that it takes me several listens to really understand. Also, I’ve been listening to a lot of Dionne Warwick lately. The arrangements are so amazing. Almost every song she made is about heartbreak, but because of the Burt Bacharach arrangements, it sounds really amazing, they’re so complex. Can you talk a bit about the beginning of your journey as a musician? At first, it was difficult. I don’t know how to play the keyboard, I don’t know how to read music, so I just started out with this demo and some basic software. I kept going from there, started on Soundcloud, and people started actually listening to my tracks. I met another musician who suggested my song to a friend of hers and out of nowhere I had the Soundcloud track of the day! Then the label Zap Records found me through Soundcloud—I don’t know how—and I didn’t even believe it was real at first. Me and my siblings can be very cynical at times, and when we saw the message, we thought it was just a joke, but it turned out that they were real and they were just getting started with their label. Are there plans for an album? I’d love to make one. We’re building towards that right now. I have several ideas, my main problem is just picking the right ones, because I don’t want to go backwards from where I am now. I’m definitely hoping to in the future!

Dr. Elizabeth Greene: "The Roman Army on the British Frontier in the 1st and 2nd centuries AD"
 
55:55
Recent excavations at the fort of Vindolanda on Hadrian's Wall The Roman fort at Vindolanda is located one mile south of Hadrian’s Wall in northern England. Vindolanda was declared a Unesco world heritage site because of the unique organic material recovered there and its great importance in the history of this region and the Roman world in general. In particular the site is known as the home of the Vindolanda writing tablets, approximately two-thousand ink-on-wood documents that have preserved information including personal correspondence, military strength reports and inventory lists pertaining to the site’s soldiers and civilians. These tablets have been preserved as a result of anaerobic conditions caused by the construction of at least nine consecutive periods of Roman occupation on the site. In addition to written documents Vindolanda has produced the world’s largest assemblage of Roman leather goods and countless unique artifacts including textiles and a Roman helmet crest. Since 1970 excavations at Vindolanda have been conducted under the auspices of the Vindolanda Trust, a registered charitable organization that employs a staff of archaeologists, conservationists and curators, and administers two museums as well as the archaeological site itself. These excavations are undertaken with consent from English Heritage, the official government regulatory body concerned with archaeological sites and monuments, and with the help of a thriving community of volunteer excavators who offer their time under the supervision of a core of professional archaeologists. These excavators comprise a diverse group of people from around the world including professionals, retired persons and students from a variety of universities. For the past nine field seasons Elizabeth Greene and Alexander Meyer have acted as supervisors for the excavations and volunteer program, as well as serving as area directors for specific excavation projects. As a part of the excavation staff they have the unique opportunity to develop a field school for university students that will run in parallel to the established excavations at Vindolanda. The field school will allow undergraduate students to use this remarkable site as the base for their education in field archaeology, for the study of Rome’s northern frontier and to interact with other students from around the world.

Before television became widespread, political candidates used any means available to bring their message to potential voters. In the mid-20th century, this included a medium that has all but disappeared today: the political comic book. Host Tory Altman talks with curator Larry Bird about the Museum's collection of these unique artifacts. The "Founding Fragments" video series gets up close and personal with historical treasures in the collection of the National Museum of American History.

Wells Fargo Employee Asks For Raise, Shows Internet the Definition of Ballsiness
 
02:39
When it comes to negotiating a raise at your place of employ, what's your strategy? The long con of keeping your head down, grinding for years, and hoping to be noticed? What about a well-measured approach that relies of facts and specifics? Well, if you're Wells Fargo employee Tyrel Oates, your tactic consists of demanding a raise of $10,000 for not only yourself but for the entirety of the company's 300,000 employees via email to the company's CEO...and then CCing everyone in the entire company. Balls likes this are normally only found in a bowling alley. Oates did the math on the raises and estimates that it would only cost Wells Fargo $3 billion for an across-the-company raise, which would be a drop in the bucket to what Wells Fargo pulls in annually. It would also go a long way offsetting the sting of the CEO's $19 million a years salary. No word on whether or not Wells Fargo has any plans to institute the changes suggested by Oates, but there's still plenty of time for Wells Fargo to institute the changes.

Leaked Emails Show Hollywood Execs Sending Racist Jokey Emails About President Obama

Sony executive Amy Pascal and producer Scott Rudin have both apologized for language used in their leaked emails disparaging President Obama, calling them “thoughtless and insensitive” and “inappropriate.” The two were bantering about what to say to Obama at a fundraiser, and suggested movies featuring only African-Americans as the type thing he might want to finance. This comes on the heels of the two also being involved in the email chain calling Kevin Hart “a whore,” which in turn followed an email chain showing serious dysfunction behind the scenes of the in-development Steve Jobs biopic.

National Gallery
 
36:07
The National Gallery is an art museum in Trafalgar Square in London. Founded in 1824, it houses a collection of over 2,300 paintings dating from the mid-13th century to 1900. The Gallery is an exempt charity, and a non-departmental public body of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. Its collection belongs to the public of the United Kingdom and entry to the main collection is free of charge. It is the fourth most visited art museum in the world, after the Musée du Louvre, the British Museum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Unlike comparable museums in continental Europe, the National Gallery was not formed by nationalising an existing royal or princely art collection. It came into being when the British government bought 38 paintings from the heirs of John Julius Angerstein, an insurance broker and patron of the arts, in 1824. After that initial purchase the Gallery was shaped mainly by its early directors, notably Sir Charles Lock Eastlake, and by private donations, which comprise two-thirds of the collection. The resulting collection is small in size, compared with many European national galleries, but encyclopaedic in scope; most major developments in Western painting "from Giotto to Cézanne" are represented with important works. It used to be claimed that this was one of the few national galleries that had all its works on permanent exhibition, but this is no longer the case. This video is targeted to blind users.

Inventing Everyday Life / Part II: Wall 12 - 26.08 / 2014 St Petersburg for English, please scroll down С июля по октябрь «Витрина районной библиотеки» проводит серию выставок «Изобретение повседневности», которая включена в параллельную программу Европейской биеннале современного искусства «Манифеста 10». «Витрина районной библиотеки: современное искусство про каждого для каждого» – проект, в котором наружная витрина библиотеки в спальном районе используется как выставочное пространство. Идея этой кураторской интервенции состоит в том, чтобы, минуя музейно-галерейную систему, открыть практики современного искусства для более широкой аудитории и поразмышлять над разными проявлениями повседневности в месте ее наиболее чистой концентрации. Общая установка проекта «Изобретение повседневности» – остранение социального и материального измерений повседневности; включенность в нее, переоткрытие. Можно интерпретировать такое усилие художников как отклик на известную психологическую закономерность: многие действия людей, становясь рутинными, переходят в сферу бессознательного, способность удивляться при этом утрачивается. Работы художников сопротивляются этому процессу девальвации смысла, возвращая человеку субъектность. Первые три выставки (ВЕЩИ, СТЕНА, УЛИЦА) отражают деление пространства повседневности – стеной жилого дома – на частное и публичное, материальное и социальное. Финальная экспозиция – про то, как все эти измерения повседневности могут переплетаться и переживаться в формате личного ДНЕВНИКА. Кураторы: Андрей Шабанов (Санкт-Петербург), Вик Лащенов (Москва) ---------- English Between July and October, ‘Local Library Window’ hosts a series of exhibitions entitled ‘Inventing Everyday Life’, which has been included in the parallel program of the European biennale for Contemporary Art ‘Manifesta 10’. ‘Local Library Window: contemporary art about everyone for everyone’ is a project in a remote residential area, in which an outdoor library window is used as the exhibition space. This curatorial intervention aims to move contemporary art practices beyond the museum-gallery system toward a wider audience and to examine the different manifestations of everyday life in a place of its most apparent concentration. The major approach of the project ‘Inventing Everyday Life’ is estrangement (ostranenie), defamiliarisation of the social and material dimensions of everyday life practice. One may interpret such approach as a response to a common psychological pattern: many human actions increasingly become habitual, routine, executed/done/performed automatically and unconsciously, thereby depriving a person from the possibility of being surprised or experiencing wonder. The suggested art works resist this process of devaluation in different ways, instead enabling a person to reclaim his or her subjectivity. The first three exhibitions – THINGS, WALL, STREET – are conceived around the principle of division of everyday space between private and public, between material and social, by a residential building’s wall. The final show then observes how all of these dimensions of everyday life can be interlaced and experienced in the form of a personal DIARY. Curators: Andrey Shabanov (St Petersburg), Vik Lashenov (Moscow).

Roasting Sundried Natural Geisha Coffee

Boot Coffee featuring Linea Cafe. Andrew Barnett, the founder of Linea Café in San Francisco, and Linea's roaster Ant Walach, experimenting with roast profiles on Geisha from Willem's farm in Panama, Finca La Mula. In situations like these, I instinctively turn on my camera and yell "action!" Roasting the Geisha variety is very tricky. Finca La Mula is situated at a very high elevation in Panama with warm days and cold nights. This should make this Geisha a hard bean, but a major property of the variety itself is to produce an open bean structure and this must be taken into consideration when choosing a roast profile. As an added bonus, this Geisha is processed as a sun dried natural. Andrew and Ant share their experience roasting La Mula Geisha and Willem explains what the main issues are that one should focus on when roasting such an interesting variety.

Biodiversity and the Future of Biology
 
01:07:11
Edward O. Wilson, Pellegrino Research Professor Emeritus and Honorary Curator in Entomology at Harvard, presents the annual John M. Prather Lecture in Biology. Global biodiversity is richer than thought even 20 years ago, but it and the ecosystems supporting it are disappearing at an accelerating rate--to the great and enduring loss to future humanity. Science is not well prepared to handle this issue. We live on a poorly explored planet: only a tiny fraction, probably fewer than ten percent, of species are known to science, when microorganisms are included; and of these, only a minute fraction have been studied at any depth. There are remedies to this ignorance, and when they are applied, a major new front of biology will open, equal and complementary to molecular, cellular, and developmental biology. Organized by the departments of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology & Molecular and Cellular Biology at Harvard. 03/03/10
Egypcian Statue starts turning in display case, Manchester Museum

Even eminent television physicist Professor Brian Cox has weighed in on the mystery of Manchester Museum's moving statuette, which dates back to 1800 BC. The 10-inch tall statue of Neb Sanu was discovered in a mummy’s tomb and has been with the Museum for eighty years, but has only recently been noticed moving. Prof Cox, who teaches physics at the city's university, claims the movement is due to the "differential friction". However, Manchester Museum's resident Egyptologist Campbell Price suggested something more sinister, an Egyptian curse. "I noticed one day that it had turned around. I thought it was strange because it is in a case and I am the only one who has a key," he explained in an interview with the Manchester Evening News.

Первые три выставки (ВЕЩИ, СТЕНА, УЛИЦА) отражают деление пространства повседневности – стеной жилого дома – на частное и публичное, материальное и социальное. Финальная экспозиция – про то, как все эти измерения повседневности могут переплетаться и переживаться в формате личного ДНЕВНИКА. Кураторы: Андрей Шабанов (Санкт-Петербург), Вик Лащенов (Москва) English Between July and October, ‘Local Library Window’ hosts a series of exhibitions entitled ‘Inventing Everyday Life’, which has been included in the parallel program of the European biennale for Contemporary Art ‘Manifesta 10’. ‘Local Library Window: contemporary art about everyone for everyone’ is a project in a remote residential area, in which an outdoor library window is used as the exhibition space. This curatorial intervention aims to move contemporary art practices beyond the museum-gallery system toward a wider audience and to examine the different manifestations of everyday life in a place of its most apparent concentration. The major approach of the project ‘Inventing Everyday Life’ is estrangement (ostranenie), defamiliarisation of the social and material dimensions of everyday life practice. One may interpret such approach as a response to a common psychological pattern: many human actions increasingly become habitual, routine, executed/done/performed automatically and unconsciously, thereby depriving a person from the possibility of being surprised or experiencing wonder. The suggested art works resist this process of devaluation in different ways, instead enabling a person to reclaim his or her subjectivity. The first three exhibitions – THINGS, WALL, STREET – are conceived around the principle of division of everyday space between private and public, between material and social, by a residential building’s wall. The final show then observes how all of these dimensions of everyday life can be interlaced and experienced in the form of a personal DIARY. Curators: Andrey Shabanov (St Petersburg), Vik Lashenov (Moscow).

"Because it's worth it" - Prashanth Naidu, Founder of startup Rezonence
 
10:44
At Adaptive Lab we regularly hold events to discuss the challenges, trends, innovations and accolades of digital across a variety of industries as we believe that developing our skills and understanding of this rapidly changing landscape is sometimes best learnt from one anothers experiences. If you would like to join us for future events then email [email protected] and we will keep you in the loop. One of our most popular series of events over the last year has been Harnessing Disruption. Following the success of the last three, we saw the fourth in the series on 20th November, which as with previous Harnessing Disruption events was orchestrated around the topic of disruption in media. Joining us were 3 fantastic speakers, Chris Maples former VP of Spotify Europe, Nick Haley Director of UX at The Guardian and Prashanth Naidu founder of startup Rezonence. This video features Prashanth Naidu, Founder of startup Rezonence, whose mission is to help publishers increase revenues and advertisers engage with audiences. Prash proposed that, unlike in most marketplaces, online content is not optimally valued and that publishers should consider pricing each piece of content differently depending on the audience and its value. In days gone by people saw the value in buying news as they went to their local newsagent to buy their daily paper. Nowadays people are no longer defined by one publication as they have access to several free outlets and have become self curators. Prash and Rezonence believe that the only way to fundamentally change this consumption of content is to change the psychology of readers - how they use and view content. Using the analogy of a fruit seller on a market he remarked that not all fruit is priced the same, so why should a publisher price all their articles the same. This talk sparked a lot of debate from the audience with one of the first discussions being around how would a publisher go about pricing content differently. One suggestion was based on cost, one was based on the user viewing the article and another based on popularity. With a free version of similar content often only being a quick search or click away, would the popularity approach work? Prash suggested a reasonable micropayment or indeed gating the content with an advert which is offered by their product ‘FreeWall’. One of the members of the audience from a media agency gave praise to the value of the ad-gated approach given that it increased engagement with ad content which is obviously in the advertisers favour. Will paid for content take off at scale? I guess we can only watch this space. Spotify have successfully done it with music, deterring many people away from illegal downloads. There are arguments for and against it. But as long as there’s one outlet willing to let you read something for free it may be a difficult market and psychology to tackle. If you would like to be a part of our next event then email [email protected] and we will get you signed up to our calendar so you never have to miss out again!

Frank Lloyd Wright: A Film By Ken Burns and Lynn Novick
 
02:36:59
From PBS - Frank Lloyd Wright was the greatest of all American architects. He was an authentic American genius, a man who believed he was destined to redesign the world, creating everything anew. Over the course of his long career, Wright designed over eight hundred buildings, including such revolutionary structures as the Guggenheim Museum, the Johnson Wax Building, Fallingwater, Unity Temple and Taliesin. Wright's buildings and his ideas changed the way we live, work, and see the world around us. Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural achievements were often overshadowed by the turbulence of his melodramatic life. In ninety-two years, he fathered seven children, married three times, and was almost constantly embroiled in scandal. Some hated him, some loved him, but in the end, few could deny that he was the most important architect in America, and perhaps the world.

Contemporary art is art produced at the present period in time. Contemporary art includes, and develops from, Postmodern art, which is itself a successor to Modern art. In vernacular English, "modern" and "contemporary" are synonyms, resulting in some conflation of the terms "modern art" and "contemporary art" by non-specialists.

Looting
 
11:46
Looting, also referred to as sacking, plundering, despoiling, despoliation, and pillaging, is the indiscriminate taking of goods by force as part of a military or political victory, or during a catastrophe, such as war, natural disaster, or rioting. The term is also used in a broader sense to describe egregious instances of theft and embezzlement, such as the "plundering" of private or public assets by corrupt or greedy authorities. Looting is loosely distinguished from scavenging in terms of objects taken: scavenging implies taking of essential items such as food, water, shelter, or other material needed for survival while looting implies items of luxury or not necessary for survival such as art work, precious metals or other valuables. The proceeds of all these activities can be described as loot, plunder, spoils, or pillage. This video is targeted to blind users.
