Cheeky Contemporary Mosaic of Bachor

by Apolline

Une mosaïque peut durer longtemps, des millénaires, sans s’abîmer. C’est avec cette idée que le street artist Bachor couvre les rues de Chicago de créations qui transforment la ville en un Pompei moderne. Avec beaucoup d’humour, l’artiste ajoute des références contemporaines dans une esthétique antique. Les marques que nous connaissons bien, Mac Donald, Marlboro, Starbuck resterons ainsi gravées dans le macadam et témoigneront de notre civilisation. Avec beaucoup d’humour donc, ces créations interrogent le passant sur ce qui lui importe, ce qui est beau à ses yeux…

Clorox UV

by Elena Massucco

Clorox UV is a fantastic example of how an everyday product can be transformed via its packaging. 

The Puerto Rican office of design agency DDB was briefed by Clorox to improve the packaging of an existing product in order to make the consumers’ lives easier. 
Clorox has always been at the forefront of cleaning and disinfection, with a range of products that are effective in getting the job done and that gain the shoppers’ trust. 

But what if these products could empower the consumers themselves? Our houses are never as clean as they seem and the new device designed by DDB, Clorox UV, is a proper breakthrough in the cleaning world. 
This accessory, which attaches to any Clorox Cloro Get bottles, emits ultraviolet lights - revealing the dirt and grime that is otherwise invisible to the human eye. The tool emits light via 72 UV LED’s and is battery powered, fully reusable on any new bottle. 

Commenting on the project, the team at DDB says: “ This is a simple solution that transforms the bottle into a powerful tool, giving consumers total control of their cleaning.”

Transformation from ordinary to extraordinary is what packaging and product development are all about and DDB has done a great job to achieve this with Clorox UV.

ratak-monodosico: The Original Head of The Sphinx was...





ratak-monodosico:

The Original Head of The Sphinx was Anubis

“Anyone who studies photos of the Sphinx can see that it is out of proportion. Its head is much too small for its body, and is far less weathered than the rest of the body and surrounding enclosure. Its head has obviously been re-carved, perhaps numerous times, and its body has been covered with restoration stones dating from thousands of years ago right up until today, giving the Sphinx its leonine shape while masking its original form. So to find the clues as to what it originally was, we have to look further than the Sphinx alone.

A study of the archaeology, astronomy, and esoteric messages contained in the structures, objects, and art of the Giza Plateau and Sphinx, point to the Sphinx originally being sculpted as the ancient jackal/dog deity Anubis, facilitator of the process from death to resurrection, agent of cosmic law, and gatekeeper of the passage to immortality.

The Pyramids Texts, carved into the stone walls of the pyramids at Saqqara in Egypt, date from around 2400 BC and are currently the oldest dated sacred texts in the world. They contain the earliest references to the Great Sphinx and Pyramids of Egypt, and indicate that the Great Sphinx once took the form of the Egyptian god Anubis.

In ancient times the site of the Great Pyramids, where the Sphinx lies, was called Ro-Setawe, the Sacred Land and the Necropolis, and the Pyramid Texts refer to Anubis as “Lord of Ro-Setawe,” “Anubis who presides over the Sacred Land” (and also Pure Land, and Secluded Land), and “he at the Head of the Necropolis,” which are all ancient references to Anubis standing guard over the site of the Great Pyramids. This may not have been just a metaphysical reference, but a very physical one, as the Sphinx does indeed stand at the entrance to the site of the Great Pyramids.”

O evangelho segundo Piqueira

Iluminuras modernas

bíblia10

 

Começa nesta quinta-feira (29/10) a exposição Inanis – Iluminuras para o século 21. Idealizada pelo designer e escritor Gustavo Piqueira, a mostra que mistura literatura e design permanece quatro meses em cartaz na sala BNDES da Biblioteca Brasileira Guita e José Mindlin, na Cidade Universitária, São Paulo.

O projeto começou com o livro Mateus, Marcos, Lucas e João. A obra é uma sátira ao período que vivemos, pois reconta os evangelhos do Novo Testamento da bíblia transpostos para dias modernos. Cada um dos supostos escritores dos evangelhos mencionados dá depoimento de como ocorreu o surgimento do salvador. No caso, um cosmético que combate a celulite.

 

bíblia9

 

Todo o tratamento do livro é baseado no modo como os volumes eram decorados e organizados na era medieval, porque foi nesta época que as bíblias passaram a ser reproduzidas à mão com mais frequência. Sendo assim, com colaboração de Deiverson Ribeiro e Samia Jacintho, capitulares historiadas foram desenvolvidas para o livro.

 

bíblia8

 

Tais capitulares eram letras maiúsculas incluídas no início de uma nova parte ou capítulo dos tomos da “Idade das Trevas”. A letra figurava como motivo central de uma ilustração, porém ao redor dela eram acrescentados elementos que ajudavam a narrar a que se passava no conteúdo relatado. Às vezes, ficava até difícil entender que havia uma letra no meio da composição.

 

bíblia7

 

Como processo de estudo para o livro que imita uma bíblia antiga, três alfabetos variados no estilo capitular historiada foram desenvolvidos em tamanhos diferentes. “A estrutura de iluminura medieval feita à mão me parecia o mais apropriado para o projeto, que foi ganhando corpo e se desdobrou em outras ideias”, afirmou Piqueira.

 

bíblia1

 

O escritor estudou tanto a redação e o processo gráfico evolutivo da bíblia que fez outro livro. Intitulada “O autor Gustavo Piqueira rebate as acusações de plágio recebidas por seu livro Mateus, Marcos, Lucas e João”, a obra é uma piada que justifica como o artista fez sua versão do livro mais lido do mundo ao passo que conta a trajetória de construção da bíblia.

 

bíblia

 

Ao longo da segunda obra é possível entender como a bíblia migrou do rolo de papiro para o códice, modelo tradicional de livro que utilizamos. “A igreja católica foi responsável pela consolidação da formatação e pontuação dos livros que lemos hoje em dia e propagação do latim e outros idiomas”, descreveu Piqueira ao pontuar heranças que a religião ocidental espalhou pelo mundo.

 

bíblia11

 

“Muito da moral e do comportamento do ocidente foram desenhados pelo catolicismo tendo a bíblia como um dos principais métodos de difusão.” Quem visitar a exibição irá conferir as capitulares historiadas, o panorama de evolução gráfica da bíblia do começo do cristianimo até a invenção da imprensa por Gutemberg e os dois livros. Todo o projeto levou cerca de três anos para ficar pronto.

 

bíblia2

 

Serviço – A exposição fica até 27 de fevereiro na sala BNDES (Av. Prof. Luciano Gualberto, 78, Cidade Universitária, São Paulo, SP, Brasil). A visitação é de segunda a sexta-feira, das 9h às 20h, e aos sábados, das 9h às 13h. A entrada é franca.
