Cloud DCS Headquarters by Arboit Limited  

Hong Kong-based design company Arboit Limited has designed the Cloud DCS Headquarters inside an existing 20.000 square meter industrial building located in Nansha (Guangzhou, China), in order to let the company’s name standing out in a competitive chinese IT market that has generally shown no interest in design.

Taking in account the name of the company, Cloud DCS, the theme of the project consists on the image of a stream of clouds containing knowledge carried by winds and defining flowing layers of fading tones of blue in the sky: its abstract nature portrays today’s digital communication.

This project translates into a figurative language the reality of the Internet as a truly important agent of change in our life and society. The main area of the project concerns 1.958 square meters, half of the ground floor area of the 20.440 square meter building

Dynamism of clouds is expressed by a layered ceiling 30 meters long sculpture, made of metal profiles painted in seven gradients of blue and covered by Barrisol’s stretch fabric back-illuminated by neon lights. The same rarefied artwork defined by the ceiling is reflected on the floor as a gigantic painting printed on the resin, creating the impression of walking on the sky.

Interviews | September 24, 2020

I was born in Mexico City, my parents were both plastic artists, so artistic expression is in my blood, it is part of me, beyond what academic study can do for anyone. My mother said I was born bored. I am a person who gets bored easily with routine. What I paint, must necessarily take me to a world full of fantasy where there is always an explanation for my reality. Read more


INTERVIEW: MELANIE MOLLO

Interviews | September 24, 2020

Feelings flow freely into the soul, without control, as the colors on the canvas become one with it. That it is happiness, sadness, love, passion, anger, they dominate us and dominate our actions. Like the flow of a river into the sea, they get lost in the immensity of our being, regenerating itself in the latter, and then share their new life as a drop and source of feeling. This underlines the cyclical nature without a beginning or an end. Feelings are part of us forging our character. Read more


BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.
