“My series is called Notations, and reflects my love of letter forms and typography, of words and language, and a delight in the visual and tactile properties of old books and documents, especially those that are creased, stained and foxed. I’m interested in surface variations and the play of light on shiny areas contrasting with the velvety softness of old papers. In a larger sense, they’re about communication, nuance and layers of meaning. I’ve stencilled some letters in shiny etching ink, occasionally adding metal leaf, and printed letterpress ornaments and a Chinese character. Some papers have been prepared by pouring and splattering India ink. The tiny photographs are my mother at ages 20 months, 3 years, and 25. Other images are from dictionaries and old steel engravings.” ~ JJ

Nothing is unimportant. There is no place without history, where you can just do what
you want. Every place speaks in a unique way. It needs to communicate a certain way
and to appeal to people. Architecture is an art of communication – not with words, but
with proportions and with an aura. Every building must tell a story. – Daniel Libeskind.

Y SIN EMBARGO magazine Last/s, #29 (new! published!)

If communicating means to put something in common, is it possible, today, at the height of

the era of communication, putting something in common? Or all we got are monologues?

About this issue………Seven years of a periodical and independent publication is perhaps both necessary and long enough a time to verify or put into practice a set of ideas, wishes and adventures.

YSE closes a cycle, but doesn’t close (neither literally nor metaforically). New situations, new circumstances and, most of all, new wishes and interests consume and demand the always limited well of time and energy. We have grown in this seven years without any kind of sponsoring, there was never a financial support or even modest underpinnings to give any logic of survival to the publication.

Everything has been done on breathhold, in a respiratory exercise, at times painful, even if oxygen (of course intangible) always managed to be there in the end. Nevertheless these are times of generalised asphyxia and sometimes – even though nostalgia or stubbornness exert their seduction- it is necessary to dry dock the boat, caulk and face different courses. We will go on…….but we will be other.

Curiosity Design Studio: Light-Light Installation

‘Light-Light’ is an installation made of 80 mini lights freely floating in the air.

The installation design is based on the idea of design freed from information, history and reference, a place of preserved time and apparent emptiness. Design is about communication, the challenge of ‘Light-Light’ is to create a connection with a minimum of means. This language should transcend age, culture, history and genre using technology but making it disappear, enclosed in a space that would ultimately vanish.

Light is a fantastic substance that we can imagine but not capture, it is opulence born from simplicity, an interplay of intellect and emotion. ‘Light-Light’ is a choreography of light performed by a ballet of free minds. ‘Light-Light’ is an expression of Japanese esthetic where the object is not of concern but the effect, the existence or non-existence itself is the main focus, the dialogue between reality and the perception of reality by human experience.

‘Light-Light’ gives the freedom to the visitor to be part of the installation as an actor, able to interact, play, brake and recreate. It projects“ your own desires and dreams into a vision where everything seems possible. ‘Light-Light’ is a place of discovery, each individual creates their own history when encountering the installation, from surprise to curiosity, from impact to intimacy. Light-Light’ is a design liberated from shape and materiality only the experience remains. [Extract : Curiosity, Tokyo Wonder]
