Architects create exquisite home addition out of reclaimed barn wood and local stone

Montana-based JLF Architects recently updated a gorgeous home in Jackson Hole with a spacious addition built out of reclaimed barn wood and local stone. The home design is straight out of a fairy tale, with rustic wood paneling and a glass-enclosed interior walkway leading from one end of the existing structure to its new extension. The home is located deep in the Teton Pines community, surrounded by thick forest. The homeowners were looking to add space to host visiting family during the summer and holidays, but they wanted to retain the existing home’s aesthetic. Working with local firm, Big-D Signature, JLF Architects created a design that would enhance the home’s size, but without sacrificing its beautiful rustic character.

Arizona Camera Museum opens in the Market of Dreams

Cameras have been freezing moments in time to various levels of success since the 1800s with the invention of daguerreotypes. A century later, in 1948, Polaroid released their model 95 Land Camera, the first instant camera that printed photos in about a minute. There have been countless technological advances in the years since to make cameras more easily accessible and we have slightly different expectations of the word “instant.” Now, Flagstaff residents can explore the development of cameras through history at the Arizona Camera Museum, which opened this past November. Donated display cases line the walls of the room where the museum found its home inside Sunnyside’s Market of Dreams. Several Kodak No.2 Beau Brownie cameras with brown and blue geometric art deco designs by industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague fill part of a display case and demonstrate the style the designer popularized in the early 1900s. Other cameras are disguised as soda cans, children’s toys and even a pock..

Painter, painter of the wall, what's the fairest colour of all?

Just pink, or the pinkest pink?Courtesy of Stuart Semple By Joshua Howgego There’s a big fight in the art world. The debacle began with sculptor Anish Kapoor, who among other things, was a designer of the ArcelorMittal Orbit sculpture that writhes in the skyline of London’s Olympic park. Kapoor is known for portraying holes and voids in his work, so when he heard about a company that claimed to have developed the blackest black, he wanted a piece of the action. Vantablack is a material made of carbon atoms fashioned into tiny tubes that form a sort of nanoforest, which absorbs more than 99.96 per cent of light that enters it. Luckily for Kapoor, its developer, Surrey NanoSystems, was keen to work with an artist, but just one, because it is a small outfit and Vantablack still needed further development to be a practical artistic material. So in 2014, the Let's block ads! (Why?)

A Berlin exhibition explores the past, present and future of Qatari art

Opened recently at Berlin’s cavernous Kraftwerk space, Contemporary Art Qatar is a sprawling, three-part exhibition dedicated to Qatar’s current art and design scene. Presented by the Qatar Museums group to mark the end of a year of collaborative cultural projects between Germany and Qatar, the exhibition features more than 30 contemporary makers that demonstrates diversity in the Arab country and a dialectic between the traditional and the innovative, heritage and hybridity. Take Aisha Al-Suwaidi, a Doha-based designer who looks simultaneously to the past and future in her work, creating domestic designs that celebrate the comfort and nostalgia of home while addressing the changing needs of urban homes as she observes them in her city: concrete teddy bears make the materials of outside more familiar indoors, a ’nostalgic table’ for dining that uses the smell of old houses to trigger fond memories, and a chic, high-cornered ‘Grandma chair’, stuffed with scented habat soda seeds, are am..
