Designers, artists and craftsmen. Or what do we mean by innovation | Elías Cueto

Innovation is a term whose meaning is broad. Referring to wood helps to specify the scope of work, but it does not record it sufficiently. There is innovation in wood linked to consolidated fields of knowledge. From forest engineering, or the mechanics of materials to industrial transformation or the chemical digestion of wood, all these fields have given rise to […]

Atmospheric time | Miquel Lacasta

In one of his writings, Olafur Eliasson speaks about the atmospheric time.1 In the introduction to the above-mentioned text, The Museums are Radical, Eliasson develops a small statement of the interaction between time and energy.

Scriptorium | Elías Cueto

One of the more fascinating pieces of furniture of the history is the one that Antonello da Messina paints for San Jerónimo. By means of successive operations of encapsulamiento and as if about a story of Borges it was treating itself, the Renaissance painter locates a space inside other one and this inside one more. The picture frames a wall, […]

Glen Gould chair | Elías Cueto

Hypochondriac, suffering from syndrome of asperger, obsessive – compulsive maniac of the work, perfectionist of the sound and of the silence … Glenn Gould‘s eccentricities helped to popularize the works for J. S. Bach’s keyboard so much as his talent and personality. Between his eccentricities, certainly, one finds his chair. The proximity with which the Canadian pianist was placing on […]

Of the (architectural) ellipses | Pedro Hernández

In 1996, Bernard Tschumi writes ‘Violence of Architecture’ –a chapter of the book Architecture and disjunction– in the one that he presents to the architecture as an element in constant tension: between the body that occupies the space and the geometry that it contains to the body. Tschumi’s dilemma does that the architect should decide if he inclines of one […]

From the horizon (and his dissolution) | Pedro Hernández

The present text is, first of all, a simple and small reflection on the exhibition ‘Statements of a negotiation’ that gathers the pictorial work of the artist Francis Alÿs and developed – until Sunday, the 16th of August – in the Museum Tamayo of city of Mexico.

Any work of art, it does not import his major or minor relative value, aspires to be kept intact across the time in wait to be a sight, reading, executed, represented.

Architecture-Art (I) | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

It seems to be completely unnecessary to wonder today if the Architecture is or not an Art, question that was very present in the sixties immediately after the effort of the Marxist sectors to insist on his utilitarian condition qualifying the “artistic” vision as a nineteenth-century diversion. Because already today all the big museums of contemporary art have very active […]

The end of the modern city [Le saut dans le vide] | Miquel Lacasta Codorniu

The image is well-known. Yves Kelin constructs a forceful image in which he itself throws to the emptiness from what it looks like the top part of a wall, just person from a cornice. Seemingly the jump is of approximately 3 meters, probably 3,50, of height and the first physical sensation it is that of pain. As a mechanism of […]

Local geometries | Íñigo García Odiaga

The places, the landscapes, have a personality, a character, a stamp that at some time has been defined as a Genius Loci, a local spirit. To preserve this character and even to amplify it is the last aim of any artistic or architectural work that leaves of the urban territory and that faces the nature and the landscape. In the […]

Pissarro

«Humble and colossal», as his friend Cézanne described him, Camille Pissarro (Saint Thomas, Virgin Islands, 1830–Paris, 1903) is perhaps the most important figure of impressionism and at the same time the least familiar of the movement’s members. As mentor to the group, it was he who in 1873 drafted the statutes of the artists’ cooperative that launched the exhibitions of […]
