This Designer Built A Secret Studio That Hangs Beneath An Underpass
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/08/22/this-designer-built-a-secret-studio-that-hangs-beneath-an-underpass/

Via Fastcodesign

Cities contain miles and miles of elevated infrastructure: bridges, elevated train tracks, swooping highway ramps. They support thousands of commuters, tourists, and others traveling through the city. Beneath them stretch miles and miles of urban underpasses that are empty, dangerous, and virtually unusable.

The best ways to clean up and make use of these spaces is an issue urban planners and architects in cities worldwide have sought to address, with efforts that include making underpasses well-lit and building parks in the unused space. They might take note of the work of self-taught furniture designer Fernando Abellanas, who has transformed the underside of a bridge in Valencia, Spain, into an ingenious, pop-up workspace. Abellanas’s design is half floating studio, half horizontal elevator: One part is a metal and plywood box that moves across the underside of the bridge on wheels. When it gets to the far side, a shelf, chair, and desk bolted into the wall fit into the structure to complete the studio.

Slippery Geometry and Beguiling Color #ArtTuesday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/08/22/slippery-geometry-and-beguiling-color-arttuesday/

via HYPERALLERGIC

The Washington Color School, which was centered in the nation’s capital, included such artists as Morris Louis, Gene Davis, Kenneth Noland, Hilda Thorpe, and Paul Reed. In 1965, Gerald Nordland organized the exhibition, “Washington Color Painters” at the Washington Gallery of Modern Art (June 25 to September 5, 1965), which traveled to other venues, including the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, helping the group gain national exposure.

As the recent re-hanging at the renovated East Building of the National Gallery of Art makes amply evident, there were a lot of artists interested in the expressive possibilities of color who lived and worked in Washington DC between the late 1950s and the late ‘70s but were not included in Nordland’s landmark exhibition: Anne Truitt, Sam Gilliam, Kenneth Young, and Alma Thomas, for example.

While the Washington Color School is by now a well-known chapter of postwar American art history, there is another, lesser known though no less accomplished group of abstract artists who developed a meticulous approach to the phenomenology of color. Working in New York since at least the mid-1970s, these artists, who are centered at Hunter College, where they taught and, in some cases, continue to teach, have never been fully recognized.

Drones, Data, and Deep-Fried Doughnuts: STEAM at the Great New York State Fair #MakerEducation
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/08/22/drones-data-and-deep-fried-doughnuts-steam-at-the-great-new-york-state-fair-makereducation/

The Scientific American Blog highlights the new STEAM exhibit that will be showcased at the upcoming New York State Fair up in Syracuse from August 23rd through September 4th.

Fairgoers to the 2017 Great New York State Fair will have more than Ferris wheels and horse shows waiting for them this year. The Fair will feature a new STEAM exhibit highlighting the latest and greatest from the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. A state fair may not seem like an obvious place to see drones or 3D printers, but Mel Chesbro – the State Fair Coordinator – thinks that it presents a perfect opportunity. That is why she and the sponsors from C&S Companies fought to have the exhibit greet fairgoers right as they walk through the doors.

The exhibit will be in the recently restored Science and Industry Building, one of the most high-traffic paths through the Fair. The eight booths will feature a daily rotation of New York companies itching to give young fairgoers a hands-on introduction to the unexpected side of a life in science. The Fair has a long history of combining learning and fun at the agricultural exhibits, encouraging fairgoers to get hands-on (or even elbows-deep) with the activities. Chesbro is excited to bring the same approach to the STEAM booths. Fairgoers will have a chance to try something new, maybe touch some things they wouldn’t otherwise be allowed to touch, and just have fun. Time for some “edu-tainment.”

Meet Singularity Black, the Blackest Paint on the Market #ArtTuesday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/08/22/meet-singularity-black-the-blackest-paint-on-the-market/

via HYPERALLERGIC

Step aside, Vantablack. There’s a new superblack paint in town.

Named to reference the center of a black hole, Singularity Black is a solvent-based paint full of carbon nanotubes that absorb almost all light, from the visible to the long-wave infrared, that falls on them. You can apply it with a brush or even with a spray gun, to make objects look utterly flat, even if their surfaces are incredibly textured. The above screw, for instance, was coated in Singularity Black, and it disappears when set against a sheet of wrinkled aluminum foil, also coated in the pigment.

Singularity Black is technically less black than Vantablack, which is also chock-full of carbon nanotubes. The latter exhibits lower reflectance in the visible range — about 0.2% total hemispherical reflectance (THR) at 700 nm — and Singularity Black exhibits about 1.15% THR at 700 nm, Preston said.

But Singularity Black has the lowest visible reflectance of any paint in the world that is generally available to the public. You can buy it right now, by contacting NanoLab’s sales department, in volumes of 250mL, 500mL, or 1000mL. Preston, however, advises that artists first purchase a 20mL artist sample to experiment with Singularity Black and get acquainted with the prescribed coating techniques and its required treatment process. The artist sample, which resembles a vial of nail polish, costs $30 (shipping not included).

From Ignacio Montalvo on vimeo via No Film School:

“Art in films” is a series of video essays that analyze the relationship between cinema and art.

In this first video essay, I look into EDWARD HOPPER and the films that have been influenced by his art.

Life-Size Steel Wire Sculptures of Emotional Figures Trapped in Boxes #ArtTuesday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/08/22/life-size-steel-wire-sculptures-of-emotional-figures-trapped-in-boxes-arttuesday/

Via My Modern Met:

Sculptor Nadia Zubareva creates incredible figurative wire sculptures from stainless steel threads and polymer coating. From Siberia, Zubareva now lives and works between St. Petersburg and Finland, constructing her life-size sculptures with incredible skill. The wire sculpture artist manipulates her medium deftly, molding the metal into expressive figures that at times mimic classical art.
