Berlin-based photographer Mustafah Abulaziz has spent the last five years in a singular exploration of the world’s relationship to water. Returning to his Brooklyn roots, an exhibition of his work has launched as an illuminating series of lightboxes in Brooklyn Bridge Park beside New York’s East River—as part of annual photography festival Photoville. A collaboration between NGOs Earthwatch, WaterAid, WWF and HSBC’s global water programme, Abulaziz’s Water Stories—a series that forms part of his wider project about water—sheds light on the human and environmental impacts of the earth’s most precious resource.
Danskina design director Hella Jongerius introduces the three latest additions – Argali, Dew and Fringes – to Danskina’s range of rugs and explains how she “always starts with the yarn” when designing new textiles.
Danskina was founded in 1973 by Piet and Ina van Eijken. In 2011, the brand was acquired by textile companies Kvadrat and Maharam, which appointed Jongerius as design director in 2013. The trio of new designs make up the company’s second collection since Jongerius took on the role.
On the occasion of the Bienniale Internationale Design Saint Étienne 2015, Sam Hecht and Kim Colin curate an exhibition entitled ‘Beauty as unifinished business’ that attempts to describe designed beauty through 35 recently produced items.

For architect Ole Scheeren, the people who live and work inside a building are as much a part of that building as concrete, steel and glass. He asks: Can architecture be about collaboration and storytelling instead of the isolation and hierarchy of a typical skyscraper? Visit five of Scheeren’s buildings — from a twisted tower in China to a floating cinema in the ocean in Thailand — and learn the stories behind them.

The project began with the passion of craftsmen of Takaoka Traditional Industry Youth Association to bring excitement to their hometown, Takaoka. The short film illustrates dignity and anxiety of craftsmanship in local areas in Japan. It aims to spread the reality of Japanese craftsmen to the rest of the world and to let people know about Takaoka, the city of Japanese traditional arts and crafts. The story is about a couple, a sissy husband Takashi and a devoted wife, Suzu.

8-House is located in Ørestad on the edge of Copenhagen. 8-House offers homes for people in all of life’s stages: the young and the old, singles, families that grow and families that become smaller. Instead of dividing the different functions of the building – for both habitation and retail – into separate blocks, the various functions have been spread out horizontally. The apartments are placed at the top while the commercial program unfolds at the base of the building. As a result, the different horizontal layers have achieved a quality of their own: the apartments benefit from the view, sunlight and fresh air, while the commercial merges with life on the street.
Considering the current tech spiral that is being inflicted upon the city of San Francisco, one space Book and Job Gallery, headed by Carson Lancaster represents the former SF; the dark undercurrent, the repellant, erratic, mysterious, elements of San Francisco that are slowly dying.

Book and Job Galleryを運営する写真家/ギャラリストのカーソン・ランカスターが、拠点であるサンフランシスコを語る。
Fondazione Prada presents the exhibition “Uneasy Dancer”, a comprehensive survey of work by Betye Saar (Los Angeles, 1926). This exhibition, hosted at the Nord Gallery, opens to the public from 15 September 2016 through 8 January 2017. Curated by Elvira Dyangani Ose, “Betye Saar: Uneasy Dancer” is the first exhibition of the American artist in Italy, and brings together over 80 works including installations, assemblages, collages and sculptures produced between 1966 and 2016.
“Uneasy Dancer” is an expression Betye Saar has used to define both herself and her artistic practice. In her own words, “my work moves in a creative spiral with the concepts of passage, crossroads, death and rebirth, along with the underlying elements of race and gender.” This process implies “a stream of consciousness” that explores the ritualized mysticism present in recovering personal stories and iconographies from everyday objects and images. Several key elements lie at the center of her artistic practice: an interest in the metaphysical, the representation of feminine memory, and African-American identity which, in her work, takes on takes on evocative and unusual forms. As Saar has said about her work, “It was really about evolution rather than revolution, about evolving the consciousness in another way and seeing black people as human beings instead of the caricatures or the derogatory images.”

Singapore is not used to letting people do whatever they want and thus it has been stuck with a moribund art scene. But the opening of the new National Gallery aims to change perceptions of the city-state both at home and abroad; Monocle films take a look at a fast-emerging art scene.

Living in San Francisco, Ethan felt the need to get out and confront himself to the mountains. Impressively brave and graceful, he scales the legendary Yosemite cliffs in California with his bare hands. Inherent in his conquest of new routes is a desire to reach a higher physical and spiritual level.
My wife and I went on a roadtrip from Perth to Sydney. We spent some weeks exploring the amazing Australian coast line. From deep blue bays to staggering mountain views, Australia contains some of the most insanely beautiful sights in the World.
Enjoy some aerial shots from the trip.

This is the city-wide follow up to my aerial exploration of downtown Los Angeles from last year (vimeo.com/101231747). And much like with downtown, I continue to be awe struck by how much of this vast city I have partially or completely overlooked before undertaking this video. And like most voyages of discovery, I’ve realize there’s so much more to find.
Packing it all into one short-form video has been nigh impossible and much didn’t make it for safety, privacy or simply because I couldn’t make it 30 minutes long! Notably missing are: LAX Theme Building, both Gettys, some Lautner homes, numerous beautiful buildings, the Gabba gallery, many murals that vanished before I got to them, and much of downtown featured in last year’s video.
A map of the locations is here: goo.gl/f4fq3U

Droning For Good
With all the controversy about drones, it’s important to remember that they can be (and often are) used responsibly. As with many emerging technologies, the laws struggle to keep up and we must employ a common sense approach to their use that is respectful to community, safety and the law.
My Drone Protocol
– Avoid busy periods, rush hours, special events, etc.
– Avoid sensitive areas or anything that can be misconstrued without prior permission.
– Avoid crowds. Small groups only from the periphery with ground spotters and two-way radios.
– No flights near airports, TFR areas and restricted airspace (FAA class B, C, D).
– Be prepared for local air traffic below 400ft including awareness of helipad locations.
– Operate at or below roof lines to assure separation from air traffic.
– Avoid “loitering” next to residential homes and apts.
– Respect residential areas for quiet and right to privacy.
– Eliminate any material that inadvertently reveals someone in a place of privacy.
