“Tajo” (2011) by Daniel Canogar
180 recycled bottles, water, 180 iron weights, projectors, media player
180 animations at 4 minute loops, 433 x 275.6 x 138 ” / 100 x 700 x 350 cm
edition of 3
“Tajo” is an installation which literally and metaphorically references the river system – the Tajo – of which the Madrid region and even Madrileños themselves form part. A meticulously crafted video animation is projected onto 180 used plastic bottles, converting the bottles themselves into small screen, while casting distorted abstract images onto walls of the exhibition space.
MOCA’s Critical Campout
The L.A. Urban Rangers lead a campfire program that explores the full spectrum of habitation options in downtown Los Angeles. Activities include the Downtown Ecotone Hike, a live demonstration of how to make an alternative temporary shelter, an Ask-a-Ranger station for all of your questions about downtown habitation options—from streets to loft condos— and a discussion about the vast climate of city ordinances shaping the habitat ecology.

Excerpt from Natures series
The Natures project consist in a series of multi-screen installation pieces and a live audio-visual performance in collaboration with musicianMira Calix and cellist Oliver Coates. Natures explores the dialogue between “the natural” and “the artificial”, creating a world where these two elements coexist harmoniously. Interpreting plants’ organic behaviours, computer-generated elements become part of the natural world and vice versa.

Dieter Rams: Less and More Interview
How to introduce one of the most influential designers of the 20th century–one whose clear visual language has not only defined product design for decades, but also our fundamental understanding of design’s potential and function? We’re guessing our “Less and More” book and this video podcast interview is a good start.

“Portrait of a Walk: Aspen” (2011) by Lincoln Schatz
Filmed during a two-hour hike in Aspen, Colorado wearing a body-mounted camera, “Portrait of a Walk: Aspen” is part of Schatz’s ongoing exploration of place, process and event.
The wearable camera reduces the conceptual and physical distance between the landscape and myself by merging us into a single entity. Moving together, the camera captures a direct recording of my experience. – Lincoln Schatz
