“I was not interested in just producing another chair – I wanted to look at another way of sitting. I decided to focus my design on artisanal methods.
With the artisanal one can preserve the culture of Africa and its savoir faire and then elevate it and make it contemporary through design.” Cheick Diallo

 “I don’t have an interest in design if it is only to remake that which already exists.” Cheick Diallo

“Founded in June 2009, Coletivo Amor de Madre is a Brazilian/ Colombian gallery focused on the development, production and presentation of disruptive design and art. Led by Ivan Hurtado Arango, plastic artist and architect, and Olivia Yassudo Faria, artist and publicist, the gallery is dedicated to developing unique work by contemporary artists from Latin America and other regions. Coletivo Amor de Madre focuses on dynamic, conceptual work that pushes boundaries through the use of recycled materials, subverting traditional wood production, technological exploration led by social inspiration and incorporating craft and handmade techniques. Exhibiting both the most acknowledged designers and emerging talents from the continent, GUILD provides an opportunity to focus on work from Brazil.” Guild

The idea of Coletivo Amor De Madre, [‘mother’s love collective’] speaks to our understanding of how passionately our designers love their work, how they literally give birth to it – and we want it to be received with the same love. As a collective, we also encourage creative exchange.”

Phd. – Electrical engineering – South African

“..van Vuuren’s work is about experimentation and evolution, about art and science and new materials and processes. She looks at technology as a creative tool and has turned to new methods of manufacturing and design that have pushed the boundaries beyond what could ever be achieved by conventional processes.
Digital design and additive manufacturing have become her tools and it is the perfect medium to explore her artistic and technical interests.
By means of 3D printing she has been able to give substance to her imagination, with no limit to realising even the most elaborate image.” GUILD
AGENTS OF THE 3D REVOLUTION

What is 3 DIMENTIONAL PRINTING?
“… or Additive manufacturing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model.
3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes.
3D printing is also considered distinct from traditional machining techniques, which mostly rely on the removal of material by methods such as cutting or drilling (subtractive processes).” Wikipedia

Dylan Lewis

“South African artist who has emerged as one of the foremost figures in contemporary sculpture. Lewis’ work features in private collections throughout the UK, Continental Europe, United States and Australia, and he is one of only a handful of living artists to have had more than one solo auction with Christie´s in London.

Lewis´s primary inspiration is the wilderness. He works intensively from life, filling books with sketches, notes and drawings. By referring to these in the solitude of his studio, he is able to reproduce the subject´s physical form while exploring their more abstract, deeper meaning.” SOUTHERN GUILD

• HANDSPRING PUPPET COMPANY
OVER THE PAST 30 YEARS HANDSPRING PUPPET COMPANY HAS PARTICIPATED IN THE CREATION OF OVER 16 THEATRE PRODUCTIONS. ALTHOUGH THE COMPANY HAS DONE SOME WORK FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES AND FOR TELEVISION, THE MAJORITY OF THE WORK HAS BEEN ADULT THEATRE.
“Handspring’s work has been instrumental in redefining boundaries between craft and art, fine art and performance art, the living and the dead. Their puppets for War Horse, have become icons of design innovation, receiving the Olivier Award for Design in London and a Tony Award in New York. These puppets embody a thirty-year development process during which levels of craftsmanship and expressiveness gradually matured. Handspring’s puppetry training methods developed concomitantly over time and then were propelled forward rapidly during the rehearsal processes with successive groups of puppeteers leading to openings of the play in London, New York, Toronto, Sydney etc.. Their training now embodies a philosophy of breath, of ‘group mind’ and of micromovement, which is being widely utilized in contemporary puppetry. And their puppet making too is very much part of a coordinated group effort with craftspeople in their Cape Town factory sharing their expertise across continents and welcoming puppet makers from abroad to interact with and develop their own methodologies. The not-for-profit Handspring Trust, which has developed out of the success of War Horse, now works in Masipumelele and Barrydale, bringing Young Leaders into the Handspring Factory in Capricorn Park for training, and returning them, inspired , to their own communities, where they are running annual festivals and puppetry workshops for younger learners. And Handspring’s senior puppet makers, decamp each year to Barrydale to help finish puppets and participate in the Day of Reconciliation parade and performance, which slowly grows in reputation.

So, for Handspring, puppetry has become a medium which can touch, reflect and amplify many aspects of our lives: self expression, care and respect for both objects and people, understanding of animal being, expertise in mechanical engineering.

Puppets can exist as objects and are indeed beautiful in themselves. But they magnify and extend their power when they enter the fourth dimension of time and performance. Then they become our emotional prostheses: mechanical objects which take on life and express our lives, whether in the schools and the streets of a rural community, or enchanting audiences on the world’s great stages.” Guild

hoh1_hoh1_20140227_192610aRR6 Cape Town Art Fair curator, Andrew Lamprecht, stands in front of the world famous Tretchikoff “Chinese Woman”, better known as, the’Green Woman.’
(In fact she has a blue face.)

Lamprecht curated the Tretchikoff Exhibition in 2011, at the South African National Gallery in Cape Town. I heard a rumour at the Cape Town  Art Fair that the, green woman’ is about to be auctioned again. It holds the South African record for the highest sale price reached at auction – I was unable to find any figures.

The exhibition was surrounded by controversy, as some art critiques & academics felt that it was inappropriate to have Tretchicoff featured in the countries prestigious National Gallery.
Tretchikoff was nick named, ‘the king of kitsch’ and known as the ‘people’s artist’.
Born in 1913 in Russia and lived  in Cape Town till he died  in 2006.

“…In his heyday, Tretchikoff’s exhibitions drew record audiences at home and abroad. He pioneered the idea of selling affordable copies of his works, enabling working class people to own art which they proudly displayed above their mantelpieces. Works such as, Chinese Girl, The Dying Swan and Fighting Zebras have become a vital part of popular culture.

‘In many ways, Tretchikoff is a major figure in the history of South African and world art and ignoring him won’t make him go away. It’s about time that we gave him a critical look and reassessed his rightful place in our art history,’
Andrew Lamprecht –  The exhibition curator

This is a section from a large painting by Scrimgeour – Her work is so very beautiful and profound. One can easily see how arduous and pain staking it must have been to execute – and it’s not copied from a photograph! So I was told,by one of the fortunate Everard Read Gallery owners, David Tripp.

Yough! What a wonderful experience… am still in shock from the quantity of stunning art hanging on the walls by African artists & or African galleries.
Lovely friendly atmosphere – got a little too crowded for me at times…
Congratulations to organisers, great job and sponsors who paid for it!

INSTAGRAM..

It was created by Kevin Systrom & Mike Krieger  (October 2010) an iphone users, only recently has been open to all other android operated phones.

Ones page looks like the image above..people follow each other ..its a very simple sight and limited to what you can do on it BUT it’s made up of mainly right brained folk who love to take photos with their phones and many do pretty crazy things. I get the impression its a bit of a love in and fest!

It’s a whole sub culture? world wide and some of us meet up for an #instameet/#instawalk/#igerscapetown,  take photos, swop notes, have a laugh.

You can only open an account/page on their platform if you have a ‘smart’ phone (android or iphone)
one can only then, download the #instagram app (apps/store)

As you add photos to it from your phone this is what your page will look like..

The Exhibition venue, Cape Town’s Town Hall [1905], is the building that, Nelson Mandela, gave his monumental, historic first speech, 4 hrs after he was released from prison (Victor-Verster Prison, Paarl, @ 4:14pm. 11.2.1990 – 64k away)

“Mr Mandela, the deputy-president of the ANC, appeared on the balcony of Cape Town’s City Hall to speak to the 50,000 people assembled outside at 20:00 local time.” [BBC]

Comrades and fellow South Africans, I greet you all in the name of peace, democracy and freedom for all. I stand here before you not as a prophet but as a humble servant of you, the people. Your tireless and heroic sacrifices have made it possible for me to be here today. I therefore place the remaining years of my life in your hands….
Nelson Mandela

The room he stepped out of, onto the balcony, to be seen by the crowd for the first time, is one of the rooms used in the exhibition
[BBC News footage]

I have deliberately not activated the links to enlarge the small images! So that you will have to go there to see it for yourself! And e x p e r i e n c e the event – And I didn’t want to rob you of the element of surprise – you just have to see how much work has gone into putting an event like this together – I have some images somewhere which I will post when I find them – taken on the day i went to drop off my entry – alas not chosen from the 2500!

The Edwardian Town Hall exudes grandeur, enormous rooms with 5m high ceilings, marble stairs, mosaic & organ pine floors. It was all about showing off colonial power and wealth – sadly it has been neglected & is falling apart.

I could see how much work the Spier team have done to transform the building – repainting the walls and laying out 100 artists work. They have transformed a desperately dingy, sad, old, magnificent & semi-derelict building into an attractive space – that I would love to live in!

Fifa moves in at the end of May for the World Cup – I believe it will be a media centre.

It would be brilliant to have the Town Hall as a permanent cultural centre after Fifa have buzzed off don’t you think?

If you feel the same – Please make a lot of noise about this – the Mayor and especially the deputy Mayor, for starters – he gets the importance of art and culture! (I worked this out as I managed to corner him at a function I was at by default – I told him I thought his bling bling chain, was really kitchy & obviously not gold – which was a heartening thing on an other level!)

There are sooo many artists here in the Western Cape that we are a force to be reckoned with – if we got organised & speak in thousands of voices to local government (they need out votes!)

There is masses of parking in front of the Town Hall

Time you need to see it and absorb it

You will need at least 2 hrs to look at everything and longer if you are going to listen & watch the many mixed media installations [@ thoughtful pace]

30 Mins at quick, look @ pace
It’s open till end? of May & its free so can go back ad nausium

There is food & drink on the first floor if your sugar levels drop and you get dehydrated!
(Next to the winning entries room & live performances?)

Open Hours

From ? till 6pm – 7 days a week?

Live work, Sundays at 10? & 3pm

[I Googled for times as I couldn't find it on their web site!! Grrrrrr ffs Eish @!*
No wonder most don’t know about the exhibition!!
‘They’ I know must still be reeling from the work involved with putting the show on – but must jack up the info that us, the little people need, to get inside to admire what they have done!

May be, if they had invited all those who entered the competition, to the opening they would have, just by word of mouth, got the information ‘out there’ – THE No 1 advertising method – creates buzz and becomes viral on the internet
All of this irritation – just because of the simple thing of not finding the DAYS & TIMES THEY ARE OPEN!
(Now need to chat with my shrink to see why it makes me so pissed off!)
Wasting my time, for starters….

Apologies
Apologies to the artists whose work I have photographed with out your permission & have used to lure people to the exhibition – I was in photography mode & not able to write down all the names of the images I took – I will return in writing mode & update with your name & work title – you could leave your details as a comment and even write about what you were thinking when you created the work!

If you hold the curser over an image, most have a subjective note that appears on your screen – which you might want to avoid!

Your brain will pay attention to what you are thinking and saying to yourself and others and make sure that’s what you get!

Rather than focusing on how terrible things are try focusing on what is wonderful in your life! What you are greatful for.

What have we got to be grateful about?

Our health, family, friends, partners, pets, animals, our job, employer, food on the table, roof over our heads, running water, chocolate cake, great teachers, blue sky, the sun, rain, thungderstorms, forrests, art, music, litrature, food, singing, the wind etc

Rather than being concerned about poverty and the financial uncertainty which the media are having a humungous field day with….

We need to be concerned about abundance for all!

If we focus on poverty we give it more ‘power’ ‘energy’ ‘force’[?]

We might then get fearful and slip and slide all the way into a jolly depressing powerless place which also adds to all the others who are thinking similarly to you which then becomes the general trend and guess what? it happens – its called a self fullfilling prophesy

Top Photo by © Miguel Ángel HorcajadaLINK – to their stunning work

So what can we do?

What we need to do is focus on how we want things to BE – according to the ‘law of attraction’ & deal with NOW – not worry about what has been or what might happen

FEEL the feelings of how you want things to be.

Not on how you are being told things ARE or how things MIGHT be

Yes? Are you with me?

For example – instead of being ANTI WAR – which keeps one focused on war, violence, destruction etc

Rather we must focus on PEACE – fulfilment – tranquillity – well being – our community – fun – laughter – caring – all the goooooooood stuff we love and want around us and in our communities

After all this is what makes us feel gooood and safe and secure and happy – all we can really be ‘in control of’ and influence – our immediate community

We must not focus on the things we do not want

We must not focus on the things we do NOT want

WE MUST NOT FOCUS ON THE THINGS WE DO NOT WANT!

WE MUST NOT absolutely NOT FOCUS ON THE THINGS WEDO NOT

WANT

FOCUS ON WHAT YOU

DOOOOO WANT

ONLY!

It took me a while to get that one!

So what are some of the gooood powerful words we can start to use and focus on no matter how under whelmed we feel?!

Abundance …. Vitality … Relaxed Enthusiastic … Caring … Joyful … Loving … Patient … Considerate … Listening … Sharing … Generous Prosperous … Invincible … Keep on till it’s sorted … Finding Solutions … Seek the positive aspect in all challenging situations … being energised … See The Bright Side Of Life … Laughing … Smiling!

A friend told me they saw a graffito that said

Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty!

Anthony Robbins [The power with in] encourages us to turn the volume of harsh angry destructive words down and turn up the intensity of the good things or ordinary things!

Lets say you’re fuuuuuuuming and steam is coming out of yr ears…..

“I’m feeling a tad irritated” ! [& and a smile would be excellent too!]

Did you know that your brain can’t tell the difference between you smiling or laughing and faking a laugh or smile?!

So if laughter makes you feel good then if yr feeling seriously miffed, a tad concerned about the sate of affairs

Try laughing or even just hold a smile – fake it

Smile at everyone – and see what happens!

The muscles that we use to smile tells the brain that we are happy and it releases the appropriate feel good chemicals – endorphins i think they are called

The power of smiling

We are wired up to feel good when we see one and when we use one!

[even if yr feeling a smidging under the weather]

Smile Smile Smile

Try it!

I found out that there are laughing clubs!

Hooo hoooo hooo haaaa haaaa haaa hooo hooo hooo haaa haaa haaa

See if there is one near you or start yr own!

I’m going to get the neighbours in for a good laugh and maybe a tipple too!

Here’s a brilliant site that tells you where to find one and if there isn’t one near you how to start yr own and how to do it!

How generous is that?!

heee heee

It describes what it really took to get the enormously controversial, Cape Town Stadium built, now poised for the 2010 World Cup, that begins in 12 days time

“BUILDING THE CAPE TOWN STADIUM CAME WITH SHOVELS OF GOOD INTENTIONS , A BIG TICKING CLOCK , BACK-ROOM LOBBYING , PUBLIC ARM WRESTLING , HEAVY NEGOTIATION
& COMPROMISE”

Cover Photograph by Soren W ©

The cool simplicity of the stadium’s form belies the fiery trail
it followed into existence. This book describes the process of
its formation by those who have been intimately involved
and brings together the often contradictory views
The stadium belongs to the people of Cape Town – its making
is legendary, its impact still to be felt. It is too early to talk
about the legacy it will leave behind: it has to be lived in and
with and alongside.

Look to this day
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities
Of your existence
The bliss of growth
The glory of action
The splendour of beauty
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision
But today, well lived, makes every yesterday
A dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore to this day
Such is the salutation to the dawn.

The real struggle of the 21st century will not be between civilizations, nor between religions. It will be between violence and non violence. It will be between barbarity and civilization in the truest sense of the word.”

LINK – Non-violence


I am a kind word uttered and repeated
By the voice of Nature;
I am a star fallen from the
Blue tent upon the green carpet.
I am the daughter of the elements
With whom Winter conceived;
To whom Spring gave birth; I was
Reared in the lap of Summer and I
Slept in the bed of Autumn.
.

At dawn I unite with the breeze
To announce the coming of light;
At eventide I join the birds
In bidding the light farewell.
.

The plains are decorated with
My beautiful colors and the air
Is scented with my fragrance.
.

As I embrace Slumber the eyes of
Night watch over me and as I
Awaken I stare at the sun, which is
The only eye of the day.
.

I drink dew for wine and hearken to
The voices of the birds and dance
To the rhythmic swaying of the grass.
.

I am the lover’s gift; I am the wedding wreath;
I am the memory of a moment of happiness;
I am the last gift of the living to the dead;
I am a part of joy and a part of sorrow.
.

But I look up high to see only the light,
And never look down to see my shadow.
This is wisdom which people must learn.


Khalil Gibran

It is the function of evil to divide, to alienate people from each other and divide one country from another. The universe, this world and our own lives, are the stage for a ceaseless struggle between hatred and compassion, the destructive and constructive aspects of life. In the end, the evil over which we must triumph is the impulse toward hatred and destruction that resides in us all.
Daisaku Ikeda

● Quote by Buddhist Philosopher Daisaku Ikeda
LINK – Daily Quotes

…factors that can create a “perfect storm” which leads good people to engage in evil actions. This transformation of human character is what I call the “Lucifer Effect”, named after God’s favorite angel, Lucifer, who fell from grace and ultimately became Satan….Although it is often hard to read about evil up close and personal, we must understand its causes in order to contain and transform it through wise decisions and innovative communal actions. Indeed, in my view, there is no more urgent task that faces us today.
Dr Philip Zimbardo – Stanford University – Psychology

Many thanks to JAX 60, for your beautiful photograph
LINK – original photo [& find out more about this 50m high sculpture - Angel of the North?]

● A few of the things mentioned in Zimbardo’s talk on, The Lucifer Effect that were eye openers for me
- Power lies in the system, that corrupts people.
- The Lucifer Effect – It’s about the crimes against humanity – Its about power, the key is power – perpetrating of evil acts against humanity/people.
- Anonymity – uniforms make one anonymous  - make many capable of terrible things [behind closed doors - domestic violence]
If someone else  takes responsibility for our actions we can seriously harm or even kill others if told to do so – eg the electric shock experiment and the fake jail experiment – fascinating stuff
- Evil – that people can BECOME, not ARE.
- and what we can do to change it – education of children [& adults] in taking responsibility/deciding to be a hero in waiting

The institutions of human society treat us as parts of a machine. They assign us ranks and place considerable pressure upon us to fulfill defined roles. We need something to help us restore our lost and distorted humanity. Each of us has feelings that have been suppressed and have built up inside. There is a voiceless cry resting in the depths of our souls, waiting for expression. Art gives the soul’s feelings voice and form.

I have been and still am struggling to get to see the diagrams with no success so far! I found out today that the reason is I use the browser Opera which it wont recognise
And
I’m using windows 2000, which is not compatible with the Microsoft software!
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

How about that!
Microsoft is forcing everyone to upgrade their operating system
more sales = more profit for share holders.
Bloody marvellous!

I have just downloaded the browser FIREFOX and am hoping that I can access the software through it.

update: firefox and windows 2000 does NOT work! boo hoo [13.7.08]
Good news is that for anyone else with a later operating system, it will work!

I’m not prepared to go through the pain of reinstalling windows and all that goes with it – having to reinstall all my software and drivers and router/internet connection etc etc – aaaaaaaaaaagh
I’ll stick to what I’ve got till i can’t use software i need to use, for now – but it’s inevitable – it will have to be done – it’s a whole day at Cidac, my fabulous computer people and weeks of tweaking!
I have used the later operating system and it’s rubbish!

LINK – to Winkingskull – see how you’re neck & back muscles mesh together

Al Gore is a busy man and my request for an interview during his visit to Johannesburg is declined. But I and 900 people worried about climate change still get to listen to him for an entire day in a cavernous hall at the Sandton Convention Centre – it’s like sitting through his 2006 film An Inconvenient Truth, and then have him explain it all to you again in detail, just in case you missed something.

Gore is the former US vice-president turned warrior for a habitable planet. His roving Climate Reality Project is here in Johannesburg to train lots of people to become effective advocates for stopping climate change, and the variety of people attending is remarkable: school children and professionals, small business owners and idealists mingle with NGO workers, government officials and Bantu Holomisa (MP, and leader of the small Eastern Cape-based United Democratic Movement).
