1. The artist Tessa Farmer creates magical worlds ruled by minuscule fairy skeletons, who are not just mischievous but downright evil. Her striking sculptures, which are made from insects, animal taxidermy, and plant roots, depict narratives that are no doubt dark and infused with maliciousness, yet their savagery is, for Farmer, an expression of a raw survival instinct inherent in us all. We met her in London while she was preparing an exhibit for Danielle Arnaud Contemporary Art and spoke with her about her process, why she isn’t interested in beauty, and what materials she can find on eBay these days—or in a canal by her house for that matter. tessafarmer.com/

  2. As founder of the legendary Silicon Valley-based design company IDEO and current director of the Smithsonian Institution's Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in NYC, Bill Moggridge surely knows a thing or two about the value, function, and importance of design. Gestalten.tv met the man who designed the first ever laptop to realize why today's increasing services are a design opportunity, to discover the richness of variety of the Cooper-Hewitt's historical collection, and to learn why design in the US still needs to get more recognition.

  3. For Tehran-born and Amsterdam-based designer, Reza Abedini, graphic design is not merely a visual art form but "a value". Combining traditional and contemporary types in his own body of work—logos, posters, corporate identities and three-dimensional designs—for more than 20 years, he is also teaching as professor of graphic design. In our Gestalten.tv feature, he gives insight into the merits of Arabesque 2: Graphic Design from the Arab and Persian World, why there is a "useless distance between the letters" in western printing and how to find one's own visual identity these days.
