Jannuzzi, Michele; Smith, Richard
Technological advances have changed not only the constraints and possibilities of individual media, but the interplay between media, and our expectations. Never before have we had the potential to channel and cross-reference such a wealth and diversity of information; and never before have we been posed such difficult questions about how information is structured, delivered, and accessed; about who sees what, where, and for how long. Designers not only have to be successful in designing for this medium and that medium but in making them work in tandem with each other, without tautology or contradiction. A cross-media approach involves media selection, optimisation, and articulation to define effective and efficient strategies for the delivery of information, where each medium is played according to its strengths. In this environment everyone is a prospector: everything is up for grabs. This book illustrates these themes through the working methodology of Jannuzzi Smith, one of Europe's most innovative and influential design studios.

Sinha, Gayatri
K M Adimoolam's art resists easy categorisation. He brings to his work a genuine spirit of enquiry, and a continually rejuvenating wonder at the generative cosmic possibilities of art. He makes profoundly aesthetic choices, bringing to his abstract painting and apparently realistic drawing sheer, unambiguous artistic skills. Adimoolam is primarily optimistic; his paintings resonate with a pleasure in the sensuality of the medium of oil, its dexterity and movement, and its ability to translate emotion into colour. What all the works have in common is his preoccupation with presences and fields outside his immediate perception, and a graded move towards the ideal space of pure abstraction. This for Adimoolam is the vivid, magnetic other, the field of consciousness - energy or citsakti - one that is not personalised in any way, but which hints at the possibility of the deepest realisation. 104pp. N.B. Laminate to bottom edge of rear D/J slightly peeled.

Birnbaum, Daniel. Sharp, Amanda. & Heiser, Jorg.
Doug Aitken is a young Californian video and installation artist who has risen to international prominence with works such as his multi-screen video environment "electric earth". Aitken's subjects explore the deserted spaces of Bollywood film sets in India; Jonestown, Guyana, the site of the notorious mass suicide of religious cultists; and a remote diamond-mining region of Namibia, closed to outsiders since 1908. His environments are vivid, elusive and dreamlike. This monograph explores the artist and his work. It features a discussion of Aitken's working methods by Amanda Sharp; an examination of Aitken's art within the context of contemporary philosophy and the work of other artists who have explored expanded notions of time and space; a study by Jorg Heiser of Aitken's "i am in you", a five-screen work centring on the imaginative experiences of a young girl; "Artist's Choice", for which the artist has selected a short story, "Funes the Memorious", by Jorge Luis Borges, whose description of altered realities through the distortions of mirrors and memory echoes the artist's own interests; and "Artist's Writings" - Doug Aitken's writings include his retelling of an unusual story he once heard from strangers he met in the desert and which served as the basis for a subsequent work.158pp.N.B.Head oif d/j slightly rubbed.
