Attack in Norway

I offer heartfelt sympathy to all our friends in Norway and hold faith that such a civil and open society will heal itself and take strength from the recent atrocities.   I am sure that I speak for all in the Forming Ideas curators who visited Norway in 2010.

End of the programme

Trying to wrap up the project this month makes for an empty feeling. It's great to see what David Sinclair has put together following his visit to Brazil....looking at his Blurb book and seeing some of the amazing people we visited in Brazil. I feel a little envious of those with spaces to curate...and yes if I'm honest i feel redundant. I hate ending projects especially those that have excited me at times, it's letting go of something special. There have been highs and lows in the Forming ideas project and I'm looking forward to exploring them in the evaluation. 

Wallpaper* features Brazil

Wallpaper* features Brazil


Last November's issue of Wallpaper* focussed on Brazil. There are some good articles and images  on the website, including ovo, street artists and architecture:

When Brazil was Modern

I'd like to recommend this book, When Brazil was Modern: a guide to architecture 1928-1960, by Lauro Cavalcanti; a good read, well illustrated and smallish portable format.
