One million stars by Maryann Talia Paul. Photos by John Englezos
One Million Stars to End Violence is an art project which came about after the 2012 rape and murder of Melbourne woman, Jill Meagher. It was an event that shook the local community and this response and call for compassion and an end to violence has made this particular initiative something which I think a lot of people have taken very personally. Local artist Maryann Talia Pau teamed up with a very enthusiastic tribe of artists and volunteers to create a tens of thousands of folded stars, which were then hung on display in an installation at Melbourne’s “Big Design Market” (December 2013)
The Colour Of Solitude: The ‘‘Lucid Stead’’ Light Installation By Phillip K. Smith III In The Middle Of A Desert
Phillip K. Smith III, an American artist based in Indio, California, has recently completed a stunning light installation in the middle of the California High Desert, near the small town of Joshua Tree. Titled ”Lucid Stead,” the work is actually an artistic intervention on a 70-year-old abandoned homesteader shack that plays with the concepts of light and shadow, reflection, projection and change. During the day, the structure reflects its surroundings through mirrors placed in both the shack’s openings and some of the boards on the walls. This acts to create an optical illusion of transparency, while at the same time transforming the desert into a material in its own right.(…)
Artists about the project: We designed and produced this project with the photographers Sean and Yvette. The 2 shots are ‘giveblood.ie’ and a blood droplet which is the logo for the Irish Blood Transfusion Service. For the shoot we ultimately prepared 2 drawings which on the morning of the shoot were staked out onto the sand with bamboo. For the giveblood.ie shot the position of every umbrella was tagged and numbered. The site is Sandymount in Dublin which has an extensive tidal area of very even gradient. The photo’s we’re all taken approaching hightide with the water level increasing at a rate of 220mm for every half hour so both of the final shot’s involving over 150 volunteers we’re taken within a half hour.

Mind Out : Project Longarm - A project by Mattias Jones.
Jones is a broken designer living in Sheffield, Yorkshire. His work entirely revolves around pattern and tessellation, from the sacred to the scientific.
Towards the end of 2012, as part of The Festival of the Mind in Sheffield, myself and a small team of technicians, coders and mathematicians developed a drawing system and put it to work. The robots drew one line pattern solutions, the shortest line possible, derived from theories on how bees fly from flower to flower. It ended up covering three walls and the floor of a twenty foot cube in one unbroken line.
