The New School Protest

I was locked out for about 4 hours in Parsons Lab... coniaso ... I think it's not fair for all student who r still working on their finals, and they cannot access to a working space ...it supposes to be a most basic right for everybody who paid for the tuition fee, eventually we paid for that space...there is no way that school can lock the door without previous announcement.
and also I don't understand why school don't take some action to open the dialogue about the issue, en cambio, el primero fue que cerro la universidad, y no dejan estudiante ni entrar ni salir, conio eso si me killa

fashion of masochism ?


This is a fashion brand called Comme des Garcons, I think it's a really funny fashion marketing concept.. is it saying that all fashion consumers are kind of masochist? maybe ... we are spending a lot of money on something that never makes us happy ....the trasitory tendecy of fashion trend is the reason of our unhappiness, isn't it ?

mi mania reguerosa

viendo mi cuarto que hace 1 hora que organizé y ahora ya esta regueroso otra vez... me hace recordar cuando tenia 15.. mi profesor de arte de la escuela primaria me decía " Pao, creo que tienes mucho potencia de ser artista" y cuando escuché eso me sentia tan contento... pero él siguió hablando, y dijo" nunca he visto un niño tan regueroso como tú, nada mas con 5 minutos ya puedes crear un desorden tan rapido , eres increible.." y al final me quedé desepcionado con su sacasmo...ahora recordando eso.... creo que él nunca esperaba que después de 10 años este muchachito se convierte en un diseñador... y muy regueroso todavia.

The Vanities by Terence Lawlor

despues de llegar a new york, tengo una rutina semanal interesante que es dar vuelta en librerias. y anoto las cosas, las frases que me inspiran. y para esta semana creo que este libro- The Vanities, es una de las sorpresas. Me gusta mucho el collage de este illustrador, pues creo que tiene un toque muy differente a lo que normalmente lo que hacen. Comparando con los otros illustradores que hacen collage, la pieza no son planos, en cambio son mucho mas tridimencional, y creo que es esa sensation espacial de las texturas que enriquece la pieza y que le hace resaltar de lo comun.

una confesion de amarrador

es dificil de reconocerse..

Persepolis

this week I'm reading a book called Persepolis, is the story of Iranian political revolution narrated by a little girl. is about the political struggle, repression, war, and culture differences... it somehow reminds me a book- The Diary of Anne Frank. Anyway it's a really nice piece, and now they turned to a animation film, it's worth to see!

Choose a Job, Choose a life

from ID magazine
Choose a Job, Choose a life.
when we set out to ask a few of our favorite design leaders about the best business decision they'd ever made, we never guessed the results would be so personal.
Milton Glaser:
The best business decision I ever made was actually two related ones, the first was joining with Ed Sorel, Seymour Chawast, and Reynold Reffins to create Pushpin studios in 1954. We had a different view of graphic design than what was popular at the time, which was Swiss and Bauhaus modernism. Our idea was to celebrate and plunder all the ideas that were considered to be inappropriate then -ornament, storytelling,complexity. We also linked illustration and design and considered both activities part of a single intention. After 15 years or so, the studio became famous and influential. Our success culminated in an important exhibition at the Louvre's Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris in 1970. We had become part of the mainstream, although we were still considered marginal by those committed to modernism. Later, one critic called us premature post-modernists.
My other decision was to leave Pushpin, with some trepidation, 20 years after we had begun it. I felt people knew too much about us and had begun to expect a certain kind of product, which I found limiting. I opened a small office in 1974 with the intention of doing things I had not done before, including interiors, objects, architecture. It worked out fine.
Karim Rashid:
The best business decision I ever made was to get a really rigorous education in industrial design. I was going to study fine arts, and if I had, I would be most likely be jobless right now. Design is democratic art.

E-wash


Levente Szabo. Congratulations to the Hungarian design student, who took home the top prize from the Electrolux Design lab 2007 competition with E-wash, a compact washing washing machine that uses soap nuts instead of detergent. The announcement came yesterday in Paris, where all the finalists had gathered to compare and celebrate their designs.

The fifth edition of the contest featured the second clothes washer in three years (remember the Airwash?) to garner the win; it's most notable feature is that it's designed to use soap nuts rather than detergent, to make it viable for use in developing countries across the world.

It came from the challenge to students to come up with environmentally-sound, commercially viable products and solutions that would enable consumers to "live in greater harmony with the environment."

“E-wash is a brilliant connection between ancient knowledge and high-tech,” comments juror Henrik Otto, Head of Global Design for Electrolux. “It takes someone open-minded to look for solutions from somewhere else and apply them to his own culture.”

Szabó says that his starting point was the polluting effect of both the washing process and the production, packaging and transportation of the detergent. “I was looking for a substance that could replace the detergent,” he explains.“ The soapnut is a natural plant and can be cultivated. It does not harm nature but is a part of it.

“The other problem was the form of conventional washing machine. I reduced the size and made it flat, so it would fit into a small apartment, but also would be able to wash a lot of clothes at the same time.”
