      • Marguerite Kahrl, speaks about her Noble Savage sculptures


        from Marguerite Kahrl Added

        The stuffed busts which I have hand sewn from hemp textiles are linked to the bioregion where I work in Piedmont, Italy. Historically, communities processed industrial hemp to provide textiles, fuel, food and building materials in the Canavese Valley. With the advent of petrochemical products the use of hemp diminished worldwide. The durable and expressive qualities of this hand woven material, combined with its role in the regions history and potential as an economic and environmental resource, touches upon the craft of living close to the land. I have memorialized this slow and enduring pace by the process of both hand sewing and casting the busts in bronze.

              Red knots and great knots depend on the tidal mudflats of China's Bohai Bay to rest and refuel during their long-distance migrations. The birds are increasingly competing with development for this vital habitat. The survival of these incredible aerialists hangs in the balance.

              • Master in Design Studies - Urbanism, Landscape, Ecology


                from Harvard GSD Added

                Over the past decade, longstanding disciplinary divides between the urban and the ecological have given way to more fluid, polyvalent and potentially more productive relations. The challenges of the built environment have rarely, at any time, corresponded to traditional disciplinary or professional boundaries. Today, contemporary practices of urbanism are shaped by thinking from subjects as diverse as landscape architecture, geography and economics, while increasingly being informed by sensibilities and stores of knowledge broadly associated with the study of the natural world. In this milieu, the MDesS Program invites candidates to examine contemporary practices of design and modes of production as they inform and manifest urbanism. As model and metaphor on the one hand, and as applied science on the other, urban and architectural practices and habits of thought are increasingly engaged with ecological thinking. In this space of intellectual inquiry and advancement of the design arts, the MDesS Program aspires to be a leading venue for post-professional studies of contemporary urban practice. MDesS candidates in the Urbanism, Landscape, Ecology concentration pursue advanced studies in topics related to contemporary urbanism, landscape, geography, or territory within the broader contexts of the global, social and natural environment.

                    • GREENSPIN: a videopoem


                      from Frome Media Arts Added

                      GREENSPIN is a collaboration between poet Helen Moore and film-maker Howard Vause. Greenspin liberates and exposes the language of corporate advertising and ‘greenwashing’. It references the creative practice of subvertising through the medium of satirical videopoetry – in this case a blend of cinepoetry, with elements of voice, music and animation superimposed over still and moving graphics (constituting an ante-narrative (in the form of an ‘ad’ for the spoof Greenspin PR company) followed by the performance of the poem ‘From Greenwash, A User’s Manual’, where the sound of the drum is visually united with the drum of the washing machine. Poem and script: Helen Moore Directed and fabricated by Howard Vause Camera, Animation, Edit: Howard Vause Cast: Helen Moore & Niall McDevitt
