A Time-Laps film by Dots Obsession – Alive, Seeking for Eternal Hope is a special installation for a limited time, September 1 through 26, where Kusama has created an “infinity room” experience with the Glass House itself covered with polka dots. Visitors who attend the exhibition during this period will be offered the unique experience to simultaneously see the world through the eyes of both Philip Johnson and Yayoi Kusama. The Glass House’s window walls and doors allow the artist to create a one-of-a-kind signature “infinity room.” The polka dots directly engage the architecture of the Glass House, complementing its structure and aesthetics, breathing new life into the house. For Kusama, the polka dot represents an individual, its own universe. Similarly, Philip Johnson created his own private universe at the Glass House, sculpting every aspect of landscape experience into his own universe.

The Czech Republic’s second city was central to European design before falling into a troubled 20th-century sleep. Revival came thanks to research investment but its future may lie in its design heritage.

Slowtide X Banks Journal present “A Maine point of view” with Nick Lavecchia
There are many ways to interpret the word canvas. A wave can be a canvas for a surfboard, drawing constant lines through movement. A piece of ruled paper in the hands of an author can quickly become a pivotal moment in a story and a catalyst for the imagination. Together, Banks Journal & Slowtide have transformed the simple beach towel into an exclusive canvas for some of their favorite photographers to capture moments in time and share with you. We recently followed one featured photographer, Nick LaVecchia, around his hometown in Maine to better understand his places for inspiration when he uses a camera in lieu of a paintbrush and a strip of film as a canvas. We hope you enjoy the beginning of this exclusive towel series and encourage you to participate with your own photos, who knows, your creation may be featured next.
Full Slowtide X Banks towel series exclusively available at
Share and Tag your photos that you think would make the perfect towel graphic: @banksjournal @slowtide and hashtag #myslowtidetowel. Our judges @nick_lavecchia, @bangbangboogie, @tbhphoto, @woodygphoto and @kaneskennar will choose the top 3 hashtagged images. The top 2 runners up will receive a gift package from Banks x Slowtide (Value $150) and the grand prize winner’s photo will be used on an upcoming Banks x Slowtide towel.

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.
“The first time I got dressed elegantly was for the wedding of my parents when I was 7 years old. I was very touched by the party, the champagne, the outfits, the mood… I had been looking forward to enjoying it as well ! In love with an angel, tonight is a celebration of what we all appreciate the most in the world : free love. This feeling I do my best to feed all the time motivated me to create a collection around the theme of a wedding. More comfortable in the creation and technically, this eleventh collection is an interpretation of how I see my witnesses. I wish you all a good time.
We’re in heaven,

Much has been made about the wonders of Venice, but few ever venture deep enough across its less touristy, yet still historical hidden places. Beyond hundreds of canals and a diverse architectural style, a secret facet of Venetian life lives on, in which the journey of hand crafting gondola wooden oars and loomed fabrics remains rooted in ancient folk traditions.
This short film uncovers the secrets that have been handed down from father to son and projects you to the Venice that existed 500 years ago, immersing you in the extraordinary craftsmen’s veiled workshops that belong to a long lost era.
I have received so many messages asking for details on how I produce my videos.
I put down this short piece: oliver.as/videotips this explains few techniques I have been using and includes a list of equipment. Don’t hesitate to write to me if you need further details or have any recommendation.
This project has been produced in partnership with René Caovilla, the master Venetian shoemaker who has overwhelmed the world with his creations.

This year, the Serpentine Galleries in London celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Pavilion commission. Starting with Zaha Hadid as the architect of the first Serpentine Pavilion in 2000, many world-famous architects have created temporary structures in London’s Hyde Park, including Frank Gehry, 2008; Rem Koolhaas and Cecil Balmond, with Arup, 2006; Oscar Niemeyer, 2003; Daniel Libeskind with Arup, 2001; and Smiljan Radić, 2014. In 2015, Spanish architects selgascano (José Selgas and Lucía Cano) designed the 15th Serpentine Pavilion. The Pavilion is an amorphous, double-skinned, polygonal structure consisting of panels of a translucent, multi-colored fluorine-based polymer (ETFE) woven through and wrapped like webbing. The architects’ inspiration comes from the site itself, as well as from the ways in which people move through London, notably the Underground with its many-layered, chaotic yet structured flow.
Outspoken, in demand and still at the top of his game, fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld talks to Monocle’s editor in chief Tyler Brûlé about the industry, the media and why Berlin isn’t as good as it used to be.

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.

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.
Man, what an adventure this was. Back in May my friend Zack and I visited Iceland for two weeks– rented a camper van, drove the Ring Road, lived off of dry pasta and peanut butter sandwiches, all of that. And Iceland didn’t disappoint. The place is so varied for one big chunk of land that it’s insane. It’s so different from anything back home: it was like stepping on the moon. The thing about Iceland, however, is that it gets over 1,200,000 visitors a year– an especially impressive number when you consider the fact that the population is only around 330,000. Iceland is no secret. So, though you’ll watch what was my adventure, and how I saw everything, what I’ve got to show you isn’t really new at all.
Because I was not the first.
I added a couple of photos via my Instagram posts (@chehadeboulos) so you could get another sense of what it was like traveling around the Ring Road… so much variety. A full, high quality gallery can be seen on my website at trafalgarfilms.com/iceland/

Did there is a connection between Architecture and Cinematography ?
This is the question the movie tring to enter.
Days of Zucco is a short film which aims to provide a comparative reading of architecture by cinema.
It is an “architectural fiction” and is governed by a number of codes:
– The scenario of the film follows the specificity of the building, its form and its program.
– There is no other decor than the inside or the outside of the building.
– The building and architectural discourse are in the second narrative level.
– The human stories are the wire scriptwriting directors
The film reuses graphics code architecture to enable them to switch in the collective imagination. They help provide a new reading spaces in which the character evolves.
Days of Zucco tells the day of a man of thirty year within a building: the Vertou cultural center in the suburbs of Nantes designed by architecture firm Fernandez and Serres.
This one was winner of the Equerre d’Argent (the equivalent of OSCAR for architecture).
At first responsible for providing legitimacy to make a film about this amazing architectural project, the script of Days of Zucco has evolved so that the film is sufficient in itself, is no longer the only image of the building but it becomes a new object, autonomous.
