Japanese Arita-yaki ware, also known as Imari porcelain, can be traced back to the year 1616 when an immigrant Korean potter discovered Kaolinite (the main component of porcelain) and set up kilns in Kyushu, which began producing blue and white porcelain. Today, Arita-yaki is is characterized by

These New Interchangeable Shoes Will Make You a Fan #WearableWednesday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/07/13/these-new-interchangeable-shoes-will-make-you-a-fan-wearablewednesday/

For once I’m all about a low tech wearable— Shooz. This brilliant design allows one pair of shoes to change into many with a zipper! I discovered these kicks on This is Brainy, which happens to post many innovative products from around the world. These shoes rely on choosing a sole and a skin. Then, you can mix and match different soles and skins to create custom looks. The real win here is travel; the skins fold flat to pack in a suitcase, so imagine packing just one sole and then having options! For now their looks tend to be more sporty, although I did find a few vegan eco options that I would like. The point is, I think you are going to find more shoes offering this morphing feature in the future.

Giant floating art lets people walk on water across an Italian lake #ArtTuesday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/06/21/giant-floating-art-lets-people-walk-on-water-across-an-italian-lake-arttuesday/

Via +Gizmodo 

Christo—who is perhaps best known for the fancy drapes he installed in Central Park, in the same shade of orange—has executed dozens and dozens of similar projects which, until recently, were collaborations with his wife and partner Jeanne-Claude, who died in 2009.

But in recent years, his attempts to accessorize the natural landscape have been met with criticism. A recent proposal to stretch six miles of fabric over the Arkansas River in Colorado was halted due to litigation from environmentalists. And, I think, rightly so. At the rate we’re destroying the natural world at the moment, there isn’t a very good reason to experiment with potentially harmful projects. But this sense of frivolity seems to pervade Christo’s work, this notion of shrouding a delicate coastline in the marine version of a Snuggie, just because. Even Christo has admitted this: “I know these projects are totally irrational, totally useless.”

You need to create a folder named "data" in the same folder where you put the sketches. and put there the files (images) that you can process.

An Exhibition of Japanese Portable Record Players
The 1960s ushered in the golden age of record players as affordability made them a staple in almost every household. In Japan however, quality stereo sets remained unattainable for most, who then gravitated to a smaller, more affordable gadget: the portable record player. The devices

Strange Biodiversity Art Will Reveal Louisiana's Oil Spill #CitizenScience
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/07/12/strange-biodiversity-art-will-reveal-louisianas-oil-spill-citizenscience/

It’s been six years since the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in Louisiana and it’s hard to forget the images of dark edged waves and oil dipped birds. The question is, how has it affected the wildlife? Prosanta Chakrabarty, Curator of Fishes at Louisiana State University Museum of Natural Science, and artist/scientist Brandon Ballengée are collaborating on a project that will help bring discussion to this important topic. It’s called Crude Life: A citizen art and science investigation of Gulf of Mexico biodiversity after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, and I discovered it on Phys.org.

The researchers will survey the biodiversity at 15 locations in the Gulf of Mexico twice a year for two years and compare what they find with data from museum records gathered before the oil spill. The researchers want to involve the public by inviting school groups and community members to take part in the fieldwork.

There will also be a mobile unit for this project, including artwork, which will allow many more people to experience the findings.

The mobile museum will include digital hand-held field guides of Gulf of Mexico fishes, animations, sculptural displays, a series of visual artwork of rare and at-risk species and a library of recent studies and interactive maps pertaining to the oil spill. The mobile museum will be on display at community gathering spots such as schools, civic centers, churches and libraries near the sampling field sites. It will also be on display at regional community events such as Mardi Gras and festivals throughout the year.

I know in Philadelphia there has been a trend of art and science groups using the mobile museum model. It’s a great way to engage people that may never have interest in a museum, or who simply can’t afford it. I like to think of it as a “smart party in a box” waiting to be discovered. In the case of Louisiana, setting up a mobile museum at Mardi Gras sounds like a novel idea. High fives to the National Academies Keck Futures Initiative for funding this work. People will be amazed to discover how their part of the Gulf of Mexico is a special home for certain species of fish, and they may also be in for some sobering art. The photo shown is Ballengée’s RIP Bluntnose Stingray from his Ghosts of the Gulf series. Does that darkness represent oil? Not sure, but it certainly gets my interest.

London’s Underground Gets a New Typeface Because 2016
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/06/20/londons-underground-gets-a-new-typeface-because-2016/

The London underground will soon don a new typeface, from WIRED.

This July, Transport For London (TfL) will roll out a redesign to Johnston, the typeface that’s decorated the London Underground since 1916. The newest iteration is called Johnston100. Designed by type foundry Monotype, it’s the first update to the typeface since the late 1970s, when it was adjusted for new typesetting technology. It’s meant to do two things: (1) Update Johnston so that it’s as legible as possible on screens and (2) Bring back some of the “soul” and “quirk” from the original 1916 design. Off-kilter details like the diagonal bowl on the lowercase ‘g’ and the unusually wide ‘U’ were lost over the years, but have been reintroduced in Johnston100.
