Is your website ready for their call?

Take-Less, the third in MSLK’s trilogy of Eco-art installations, debuted on Governors Island on June 11-13.

Like 2663 Urban Tumbleweeds and Watershed, we set out to raise awareness to the senseless over-consumption of plastics in our everyday life. We set our sights on take-out containers. We found it sad to think that the containers that the meal you had delivered to you (in 30 minutes or less) will be around for hundreds of years, especially when there are alternatives out there.

Festivals are a great way to engage people in a city or neighborhood.  It’s an effective way to bring people into the area and showcase the normally hidden real estate. It’s a win for local business and civic morale. Such is the case with the annual “Season of Flowers” in the city of Girona, Spain, which were we able to catch on a recent visit. For nine days in May, local artists create works of art using primarily fresh flowers. These works are set amid some of Girona’s finest public and private architectural settings, many of which are open to the public only during the festival. These works are scattered throughout the old city (Ciutat Vella), on the cathedral steps, inside monuments such as the ancient Arab baths, museum courtyards, small patios, and along the city streets.

This website is amazing: http://www.compositionwithjavascript.com/

It’s an interactive work based on artist Piet Mondrian’s “Composition with Yellow, Red, Black, Blue and Grey” (1920). It allows everybody deconstruct the original painting and form it again in whatever he or she wants. Lines are shiftable (just drag it with your mouse) and colors changeable (click on it). Texture of the painting was preserved for authentic look.

You can play with composition, forms and colors, alter the harmony of the piece or even destroy it and compose something pictorial.

I’ve just returned from an amazing trip: Barcelona, Morocco, and London. An amazing, inspirational treat for all the senses, I managed to take over 2,000 photos.

While in Barcelona, I was on the lookout for street art, having seen the film Exit Through the Gift Shop, about the famed street art master Banksy on the plane ride over. Some of what I saw was true guerrilla-style art, while other was hand-painted advertisements.

In all, these added color to one of Europe’s most vibrant of cities.

Here are a few of my top picks…
