Object in Focus<br /> <br /> For Fragile Future Concrete Chandelier, dandelion seed heads were harvested before opening into ‘clocks’ and individually applied to LED lights to make this chandelier. The lights are powered by an innovative three-dimensional bronze circuit which conducts electricity and avoids wiring. This fusion of nature and technology is a poetic comment on the possibilities of uniting two seemingly opposite systems.<br /> In this video, designers Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta describe the motivations and processes behind the work.

Directed by Vicki Vasilopoulos, the film unravels the mystery of their artistry and reveals how their passionate devotion to their Old World craft is akin to a religion.<br /> <br /> Italians Nino Corvato, Joe Centofanti, and Checchino Fonticoli are master tailors who have spent a lifetime perfecting the skills necessary to construct flawless custom-made suits for their clients in New York City, Philadelphia, and Penne, Italy, a fascinating process broken down step-by-step in Men of the Cloth. Now, they fear that their Old World knowledge will vanish with them. Enter Joe Genuardi, a tailoring apprentice who reflects the resurgence of popular interest in artisanal craftsmanship as an alternative to corporate mass production, providing hope for the future of this craft.<br /> <br /> Men of the Cloth is structured like a triptych: each character’s story gives us an insight into the past, present, and future of the craft. The whir of the sewing machine, the clank of the steam iron, and the sharp slicing of the tailor’s scissors create an aural symphony. As they go about their daily tasks, they share observations that are, by turns, nostalgic, poignant, and humorous.<br /> <br /> Filmed over the course of eleven years, Men of the Cloth is a meditation on the value of handmade clothing.

Using a mobile foundry to smelt aluminum cans using waste vegetable oil collected from local cafes as a fuel. Waste collectors known as Catadores mine the streets for materials to produce a furniture series with vernacular aesthetic, providing a portrait of the streets.<br /> <br /> The Can Stools are made simply with sand casting technique using readily available construction sand from local building sites, and by casting an assemblage of objects found on the streets. The furnace and the tools are made with salvaged materials.<br /> <br /> Can City creates a system where Catadores (waste collectors) can use this free metal and free fuel to produce an endless range of individually crafted aluminum items.<br /> <br /> 'Can City' was made for Coletivo Amor de Madre Gallery, São Paulo.<br /> The project was made possible with the generous support of Heineken.<br /> The film is by Juriaan Booij.
