• Painting, the Virtual, and the Celluloid Frame

      Harris, Simon J.; Grimshaw, Mark (Oxford University Press, 2014-02-27)
      This chapter discusses and progresses through an aesthetic enquiry into a relationship between the virtual and the actual surface of painting. It is through the inherent temporality of both painting and cinema that the notion of a dynamic duration is interrogated. At the core of this investigative methodology the philosophies of both Henri Bergson and Gilles Deleuze are employed to examine how duration in painting can be experienced outside of the static recollection. Fundamentally this follows Deleuze’s seminal writing about the cinematic and the function of the image in relation to time. The author accepts Deleuze’s invitation to employ his concepts as a toolbox for dynamism. Thus a model is assembled in which the notion of the “recollection-image” and its relationship to the temporality of the “movement-image” is developed through the potential of the figural as a space between the figurative and the abstract in painting.

    • Paper Shadows

      Sherwin, Guy (Studio Kura, 2016-10)
      We are happy to announce an exhibition Paper Shadows 2016 by Guy Sherwin, as a result of his activity during his stay at Studio Kura. This will be shown as a part of Itoshima International Art Festival 2016, Itoshima Arts Farm. Guy Sherwin is an artist based in London who works with 16mm film and other forms of moving image. He studied painting before becoming involved with the London Film-Makers Co-operative. The work is about elemental ideas of form, pattern, light and rhythm, either shot with a camera or hand-made directly on film. The films are sometimes shown in galleries but more often presented as projection events, using several projectors and live interventions. For these he collaborates with Lynn Loo (also on the residency) and together they have toured programmes of live cinema internationally. Here are some words from the artist himself. An installation made for the missing Shoji screens in the large tatami room at House 2. The projected images were recorded in the same space at different times of day and night. The aim is to (re)direct viewers attention to the presence of space and time and is a continuation of my previous work.
    • Park Products

      Böhm, Kathrin (2004)
      A series of collaboratively produced products using resources from Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park London presented in a mobile market stall and exchanged for small tasks to be done around the park. Working from positions of art and architecture, the project set out to design a new prototype for cultural exchange within public space by asking the following questions: What cultural, social and material resources are associated with the Serpentine Gallery? Can the production of cultural products and services find sustenance through non-monetary communication-based exchange? Strategies included collaborations with product designers on the design and production of artefacts made from material supplied by the Royal Park ground staff. This led to relationships and negotiations with involved institutions on issues of intellectual copyright, project evaluation and project legacy. The project engaged the public through principals of informal economics; resulting in the exchange of park-labour for products plus discussions on art/architecture collaboration, cultural production and public participation.

      This article focuses on key practitioners associated with Relational Aesthetics, and its relationship to graphic design, with particular reference to artists Liam Gillick’s work.
    • Peas, Parsnips and Patriotism: Images of the Garden in films of the Second World War

      HOCKENHULL, STELLA; Andrews, Eleanor; Pheasant-Kelly, Fran (Routeledge, 2016)
      This book examines the ways in which the house appears in films and the modes by which it moves beyond being merely a backdrop for action. Specifically, it explores the ways that domestic spaces carry inherent connotations that filmmakers exploit to enhance meanings and pleasures within film. Rather than simply examining the representation of the house as national symbol, auteur trait, or in terms of genre, contributors study various rooms in the domestic sphere from an assortment of time periods and from a diversity of national cinemas—from interior spaces in ancient Rome to the Chinese kitchen, from the animated house to the metaphor of the armchair in film noir.
    • Philosophizing the Everyday: Revolutionary Praxis and the Fate of Cultural Theory

      Roberts, John (London: Pluto Press, 2006)
      This book develops a genealogical critique of the cultural concept of the “everyday” from Freud and the Russian revolution (where it became crucial to notions of revolutionary cultural change) through Lukács, Benjamin and Lefebvre to Barthes, the Situationists and de Certeau.
    • Philospher

      Penzin, Alexei; Correale, Danilo (Archive Books, 2016-02)
      I would like to outline the problem of sleep in a theoretical framework, sort of from ground zero. So we can ask a question: what actually is sleep? Not in terms of medicine or in terms of biology, but in terms of its belonging to our human existence. The answer is not so obvious, because animals also sleep. But in the case of humans (a very specific, anomalous animal), sleep is transformed. And this is not just an elementary biological fact; both sleep and wakefulness have cultural, social, philosophical and political dimensions, in my view.

    • Physical activity awareness and preferences in rheumatic diseases: a qualitative study

      Vitalis, P; Kouvelas, D; Kousouri, N; Lahart, I; Koutedakis, Y; Kitas, G; Metsios, G (BMJ Publishing Group Ltd and European League Against Rheumatism, 2018-06-12)
      Background: Physical inactivity is the fourth leading cause of death (1) and a risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Patients with rheumatic diseases (RDs), especially rheumatoid arthritis (RA), report low cardiorespiratory fitness levels (2), placing them at an increased risk of premature mortality and CVD.

    • Playin(g) iterability and iteratin(g) play: Tradition and innovation in jazz standards

      Paradiso, Francesco (JEMI Association, 2017-02-01)
      This study draws a comparative framework between deconstructive reading of texts and jazz standards. It will be argued that both are defined by the constant play of tradition and innovation. On the one hand, the repetition of a set of rules and dominant understanding of texts/tunes that generates tradition. On the other hand, invention and improvisation that take on that tradition and generate innovation. The act of reading/playing becomes also an act of invention/improvisation that manifests a constant tension between the old that is handed down through writing/recording and the new that is generated by the reader/musician. Cette étude propose d’établir une comparaison entre la lecture déconstructrice des textes et celle des standards de jazz. Il s’agira de montrer que celles-ci se caractérisent par un jeu constant entre tradition et innovation, avec d’un côté, la répétition d’un ensemble de règles et de la lecture dominante des textes/compositions qui génère une tradition ; et de l’autre côté, l’invention ou l’improvisation qui, en dépassant cette tradition, crée du nouveau. Ainsi, l’acte de lire/jouer devient un acte d’invention/improvisation, se caractérisant par une tension constante entre l’ancien, transmis à travers l’écriture/enregistrement, et le nouveau, produit par le lecteur/musicien.
    • Podcasts: A Case Study of the use of Podcasting in Curriculum Delivery

      Spencer, Steve; Cooper, Steve (University of Wolverhampton, 2007)
      Over a number of years there have been research projects in the Higher Education Sector of the UK and elsewhere exploring the use of mobile computers - PDAs for curriculum materials, communication with students etc. A significant drawback with these undertakings was the high cost and limited ownership of PDAs among students – such that it was necessary to obtain funding that would enable research teams to provide students with a PDA - usually as a short-term loan, in order to facilitate the projects. Other issues of file size, formats and file compatibility continue to restrict the reach of these developments. With the launch of MP3 players and their appearance on campus in large numbers, an opportunity presented itself to revisit the use of audio files for curriculum delivery. Audio-visual materials have a long history of incorporation into course content and it is possible to find tape archives and video footage of lecturers who have experimented with these formats. It is clear, however, that there is at present a renewed interest and level of activity in the development and delivery of teaching materials through multimedia techniques.
    • Popular Romanticism? Publishing, Readership and the Making of Literary History

      Colbert, Benjamin (Palgrave Macmillan, 2002)
      This book: These essays explore the remarkable expansion of publishing from 1750 to 1850 which reflected the growth of literacy and the diversification of the reading public. Experimentation with new genres, methods of advertising, marketing and dissemination, forms of critical reception and modes of access to writing are also examined in detail. This collection represents a new wave of critical writing extending cultural materialism beyond its accustomed concern with historicizing the words on the page into the economics of literature and the investigation of neglected areas of print culture.

    • Portraiture and Critical Reflections on Being

      Altintzoglou, Evripidis (Routledge (Taylor & Francis), 2018)
      This book analyzes the philosophical origins of dualism in portraiture in Western culture during the Classical period, through to contemporary modes of portraiture in order to define the increasing philosophical crisis of this dualism, and the possibility of a non-dualist portraiture. Dualism – the separation of mind from body - plays a central part in portraiture, given that it supplies the fundamental framework for portraiture’s determining problem and justification: the visual construction of the subjectivity of the sitter, which is invariably accounted for as ineffable entity or spirit, that the artist magically captures. Every artist that has engaged with portraiture has had to deal with these issues and, therefore, with the question of being and identity.
    • Poseidon’s Paradise

      Garfoot, Stuart (2005)
      Garfoot uses industrial production systems and works with the inherent conflicts central to that process in order to express the ephemeral and natural qualities found in singular artifacts rather than production runs. He maintains technical control while allowing the work to develop which projects a sense of harmony with the natural world. Extending the technical options of previous work, for this series Garfoot experimented with adding glass blowing to the process of centrifugal glass casting to achieve his conceptual intentions. He used standard bronze casting moulds (resin bonded sand moulds from a master form) as the base canvas for his production. He then goes back into the mould to carve it and add details. He shaped the mould to produce a series of facets in relief which trapped and transmitted light. This method resulted in a unique singular product from what is ostensibly an industrial process. The development and extension of existing glass techniques and processes to express the forms and textures derived from marine conditions. Through the use and combination of centrifuge, hot working and cutting, glass sculptural pieces are created that are analogous to underwater growth.
    • Post-Industrial Watersheds: Retrofits and restorative redevelopment

      Collins, Tim; Pinkham, R.D. (CRC press, Taylor & Francis, 2004)
      The chapter addresses watershed scale problems and how the concept of ‘restorative redevelopment’ was proposed and developed on the “Nine Mile Run Greenway project.” Continuing his interest in interdisciplinary approaches to art and design, Collins engaged Pinkham, a water policy expert at Rocky Mountain Institute. They worked on the “Nine Mile Run” watershed to examine the potential for alternative approaches to land use and stormwater management. They assembled a national team of interdisciplinary experts with recognized expertise in art, stormwater, ecology, landscape design and public policy. The chapter describes the subsequent interdisciplinary design charrette that revealed new approaches to surface water and the policy issues that constrained such designs. Informed by stormwater regulations the project specified collaborative teams to work together developing innovative design, detention and retention schemes. Working from a specific construction budget, GIS maps, and onsite analysis the teams had to manage a ‘two year, 24-hour storm’. The text examines four sites, current policies and the resulting illustrated plans.
