The other side of Michael Jackson

The other side of Michael Jackson

By Petros | Oct 20, 2016

Singer, songwriter, record producer, actor, or in other words… the “King of Pop”. Everybody is aware of these facts about the superstar. But what do you know about Michael Jackson the person, the human being? After all, he was a human as well. Here are some interesting facts you probably did not know about him:

His shoe size was 9 ½ (US size) or 43 (EU size).

His weight used to fluctuate a lot because of him dancing on stage and losing water weight. As a result, different sized costumes were available for him to change into.

Michael was a bit difficult when it came to food. He liked pizza but not pasta, he loved sweets but did not eat chocolate or sugar, or even worse, in the eighties, he was a vegetarian who did not like vegetables. Mexican and Moroccan food did the trick.

How to best spend your next EUR 50

How to best spend your next EUR 50

My summer readings got out of my spotify in some way as they’ve started with INSTRUMENTAL and how James Rhodes’ passion for music has been his absolute lifeline followed by Simon Critchley’s engaging excursion through the songs of one of the world’s greatest pop stars: BOWIE and to finish I had the pleasure to go through the PERO HERMOSO pages where Geoff Dyer skillfully evokes the music and the men who shaped modern jazz.

Alejo Restrepo

Alejo Restrepo

What is more real, more relatable to people than people themselves?
Restrepo’s work relies on the simple focus of people. There is a beautiful innocence in the way his work captures human nature in its most natural form. The narrated content speaks of deeper meaning, poetic and longing. Restrepo’s consideration for spoken word and human art almost pulls you out of reality for just a second into a place of serene realization.

Into the Virtual World

Into the Virtual World

By JJ Richards | Jun 14, 2016

All of these devices hold so much promise, but without content, VR devices are less useful than a a loaf of bread.

To ensure that consumers don’t get frustrated by a lack of content, device makers are highly motivated to encourage content creation and development when it comes to games, media, user generated content and even retail shopping experiences.

Without content, the fanciest VR headset is nothing more than a fancy paperweight. The conversation about AR and VR content has been happening behind the scenes, but it will start to take center stage In 2016.

I think we can’t stay here waiting with our arms folded!

Working Together

By JJ Richards | May 23, 2016

We’ve been to one of the most important events promoting artists and technologists working together in NYC, the Seven on Seven. The event took place at the New Museum of New York ten days ago and we had the pleasure to witness 7 artist/technology pairs unveiling their collaborations where the pure act of experimenting has been  highly valued.

Pair I_Ingrid Burrington + Meredith Whittakero, using the language of magic to explain technology.
Pair II_Jenna Wortham + Junglepussy, building technoutopias to basic problems.
Pair III_Hito Steyerl + Grant Passmore, on mathematics and public policy.
Pair IV_Rana El-Kaliouby + Jennifer Steinkamp, building an emotion-reading app.
Pair V_Claire L. Evans + Tracy Chou, cool play about AI performed by text to speech voices randomized by gender.
Pair VI_Mike Woods + Trisha Baga, VR misce-en-scene.
Pair VII_Miranda July + Paul Ford, a story using found materials from attendees’ social media profiles.

Then we all head to the 837NYC to celebrate the after party-feat with a huge screen showing the work of Vince Mckelvie. All these keynoted by the great Astra Taylor on building political power leveraging tech & slogan “You are not a loan.”

The Way Things Go

By Hermida | May 16, 2016

‘How to work better’ es un gran manifiesto creado por uno de los dúos artísticos más relevantes en el arte contemporáneo internacional: los suizos Peter Fischli (1952) y David Weiss (1946-2012). Una guía aplicable a cualquier ámbito de nuestras vidas. Algunos tuvieron la suerte de disfrutar de la retrospectiva que presentó el Guggenheim de Nueva York hasta el pasado Abril.
