Volume #28: Internet of Things

When things start talking back, you’ve become part of an Internet of Things. Auto-sensoring, basic intelligence, interaction, we’re increasingly part of a world were things and living souls are equally connected. The fridge is a node just as you are. Volume #28 dives into these new dimensions of reality, into the consequences for design and for our understanding of our own position in the world. Coders and architects are different beings and speak different languages, this issue seems to conclude. Since merging virtual and physical requires knowledge about both worlds, this reality should be overcome. So this Volume is not just about framing the issue, but also about indicating a practice in the making: we call it correlation designing.

Volume #28: Internet of Things with:
Stephen Gage, Shintaro Miyazaki, Nina Larsen, Edwin Gardner, Marcell Mars, Deborah Hauptman, Ken Sakamura, Lara Schrijver, Mark Shepard, Tomasz Jaskiewicz, Ben Schouten, Golfstromen, Ole Bouman, Philip Beesley, Bart-Jan Polman, Carola Moujan, Hiroshi Ishiguro, Nortd Labs, Tuur van Balen, Ruairi Glynn, Justin Fowler, Eduard Sancho Pou, Mark Dek, Nina Larsen, Christiaan Fruneaux, Vincent Schipper, Timothy Moore, Amelia Borg, Lorna Goulden, Usman Haque, Ed Borden, Mette Thomsen, Dimitri Nieuwenhuizen, Ben Cerveny, James Burke, Juha van ‘t Zelfde.

AV 143: Buckminster Fuller 1895-1983

Monograph on one of America's key innovators of the 20th century. Introduced by Norman Foster and Luis Fernández-Galiano, the life and work of engineer, author, designer and inventor Buckminster 'Bucky' Fuller is celebrated and assessed in terms of legacy and inspiration. Illustrated with photography, drawings, plans and unseen ephemera, Fuller's breath-taking span of creative initiatives is explored, including early housing designs that used cable and pulley systems, the mythical Dymaxion Car that anticipates today's aeronautical advances, and Fuller's most fertile structural invention – the Geodesic Domes that earned him a Time magazine cover in 1964

‘Heaven is Real’: John Maus and the Truth of Pop by Adam Harper

John Maus is one of the most intriguing artists in the millennial wave of lo-fi pop, assembling his unique and intimate language from synth pop, disco, baroque classical and church music. Yet Maus's work is much more than another exercise in retroist hybridity, and his overtures on truth and love are, upon further listening, no mere ironic posturing. Does Maus have something to teach us about arriving at the truth through personal musical expression,
or is he on a doomed Romantic adventure? Has he really discovered Heaven - and can he take us there?
