How are you doing? Hope you are happy with this awesome re-spring day! Here you have the list of activities of the week, but please don´t consider this a come-down-to-hearth post… We will keep our spirit in the mood for spring!
- Monday the 27th of October, the incredible Thomas Pearce is going to meet you in the evening, at the UNIT22 space. The students should come with very specific sketches so we can work on solving those… SUCH A GOOD DEAL! “Where there is no imagination there is no horror” Sr.
- Wednesday the 29th of October, first slit from 13:30 to 15:35, and second slot from 17:15 onward. ONE TO ONE tutorials. HR140 1.33. Izaskun and I will see 12 students´works, in 35 minutes slots, 10 minutes of presentation + 25 minutes of commentaries. THIS TUTORIAL IS FOCUS IN FABRICATION! I propose to start with the last students of the auto-CRIT, so we keep it as fair as possible. The more concise your presentation, the more accurate the commentaries can be, and last longer. “The devil’s voice is sweet to hear”.
- PLEASE, SPREAD THE UPDATES!
loads of haunted energy ;)

As every week, a project of our friends PKMN is relevant as a reference of the week. We love them, we cannot help it.
PARADISE LOST – PKMN architectures.
June 2013. 1st PRIZE Transitarte Competition. Curated by Ariadna Cantis
“The world was all before them, where to choose
Their place of rest, and Providence their guide:
They, hand in hand, with wandering steps and slow,
Through Eden took their solitary way”
Milton, John: “Paradise Lost”, Book X, 1667.
“And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then after that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the place where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched their tents”
The “Universal Grid” suggested by Superstudio in the early seventies, it wasn’t able to give us back to the Paradise Lost praised by John Milton, where an idyllic naked Adam and Eve took a walk below treetops. An energetic and informative orthogonal grid in competition with the multidirectional cloud protecting the jewish people pilgrimage through the desert and turning their tents into useless devices, a new “life without objects”.
A new triangular grid depicts this ability of adaptation to the urban context, multiplying the possible directions in the urban space. The shelter of tents is suppressed by a new modular plastic forest/cloud blown up with ventilators as top of a new capital in a future low-tech classical order . A plastic and metal cloud/forest building a new pneumatic structure as Mobile Art Exhibition common roof in a new chance for searching this mythological condition suggested by Paradise Lost.

Lost opportunity again???

gabriel dawe + mixed media and installation artist.
Originally from Mexico City, Gabriel Dawe creates site-specific installations that explore the connection between fashion and architecture, and how they relate to the human need for shelter in all its shapes and forms. His work is centered in the exploration of textiles, aiming to examine the complicated construction of gender and identity in his native Mexico and attempting to subvert the notions of masculinity and machismo prevalent in the present day. His work has been exhibited in the US, Canada, Belgium, and the UK. After living in Montreal, Canada for 7 years, he moved to Dallas, Texas, where he obtained his MFA at the University of Texas at Dallas. For the final two years of his degree, he was an artist in residence at CentralTrak, the Artist in Residency program at UTD. His work has been featured in numerous publications around the world, including Sculpture magazine, the cover of the 12th edition of Art Fundamentals published by McGraw-Hill, and in author Tristan Manco’s book Raw + Material = Art . He is represented by Conduit Gallery in Dallas, and by Lot 10 Gallery in Brussels.
Will be featuring ex-bartlett tutors and lots of cool stuff.
FRIDAY NIGHT 31ST OCTOBER 6:30PM
Today, I wanted to share with you something I’ve learnt from B. Berkeley> “A geometry under control, is a beautiful geometry”.
Busby Berkeley (November 29, 1895 – March 14, 1976), born Busby Berkeley William Enos, was a Hollywood movie directorand musical choreographer. Berkeley was famous for his elaborate musical production numbers that often involved complex geometric patterns. Berkeley’s works used large numbers of showgirls and props as fantasy elements in kaleidoscopic on-screen performances.
