Mass production has the possibility of bringing more concern, more sweat, more blood and tears to the service of the individual consumer than the craft era could ever dream of.
Charles Eames
You have the right to work, but for the work’s sake only. You have no right to the fruits of work. Desire for the fruits of work must never be your motive in working.
Bhagavad Gita

Connected, by Luke Gilford, is a portrait of a woman grappling with aging, self-perception, and transformation in a technologically optimized world. Jackie (Pamela Anderson) is a burnt-out AuraCycle instructor in the midst of a midlife crisis. She’s obsessed with self-improvement podcasts (voiced by Jane Fonda), and she is soon drawn to an advanced yet enigmatic wellness spa that promises to enhance her mind, body

Cyberscience is not just something you can learn. It is an innate talent. The Juilliard school of music cannot create a Mozart. A Mozart or a Bach, much like our modern hacking community, is genetically created. A room full of Stanford computer science graduates cannot compete with a true hacker without even a high-school education.

Disco Disco is a collaborative project initiated by creative entrepreneur Alex Asseily, kick started designwise by design studio Goodwin Hartshorn, and then evolved, developed, expanded and made sing by Haberdashery.

The modular lighting system is inspired by the humble and ubiquitous Disco ball, with the aim of filling any space it is put into with shimmering light.

“Logic control panel”

October 29 2015

Initiated from MIT Media Lab, BioLogic is our attempt to program living organism and invent responsive and transformable interfaces of the future. Nature has engineered its own actuators, as well as the efficient material composition, geometry and structure to utilize its actuators and achieve functional transformation. Based on the natural phenomenon of hygromorphic transformation, we introduce a specific type of living cells as nanoactuators that react to body temperature and humidity change. The living nanoactuator can be controlled by electrical signal and communicate with the virtual world as well. A digital printing system and design simulation software are developed to assist the design of transformation structure.

The Japanese apprentice is taught that shokunin means not only having technical skills, but also implies an attitude and social consciousness. … The shokunin has a social obligation to work his/her best for the general welfare of the people.  This obligation is both spiritual and material, in that no matter what it is, the shokunin’s responsibility is to fulfill the requirement.

It is a central principle of sound editing that people hear what they are conditioned to hear, not what they are actually hearing. The sound of rain in movies? Frying bacon. Car engines revving in a chase scene? It’s partly engines, but what gives it that visceral, gut-level grist is lion roars mixed in. To be excellent, a sound editor needs not just a sharp, trained ear, but also a gift for imagining what a sound could do, what someone else might hear.

When we’re designing systems that incorporate people, that are designed to draw those people in, that rely on their activity to even work, then we have a responsibility to those people. A duty of care.

People are more than just nodes in a social graph, to be co-opted and herded around at will for our own business ends.

Disruption is Silicon Valley’s current watchword. Startups are optimised for shaking up vulnerable industries rather than assessing the resulting social, legal and ethical impact. Progress itself is the yardstick; whether that progress is in a worthwhile direction is sometimes secondary.

Cointemporary exhibits digital artworks (including editions) by international contemporary artists, which can be purchased for Bitcoin. Each artwork is a digital file that is protected through a cryptographic certificate of authenticity by using Ascribe to form a unique entry on the Blockchain. This method is like a secure, transparent ledger that tracks the chain of ownership and verifies the title of digital property through its individual address.

Following Cointemporary’s existing platform, each unique work or edition is on display for a limited time and sold in Bitcoin only.
