I’m very happy to present you the LED based work by young student from Rijeka’s Art Academy – Aleksandra Ana Bukovic. Luckily, I’ve stumbled on Aleksandra’s work while browsing through the photographs of all events from the Science Festival, held during April in several cities throughout Croatia.
While attending the course on industrial design (jewellery design), Aleksandra participated in the jewellery exhibition and show which was held as a part of The Science Festival in Rijeka (the topic of the festival was light) under the mentorship of the professor Nenad Roban (I blogged about him, too :)) and professor Lara Badurina. She presented a hat-shaped light installation for the body.

Sabine Seymour published her second book entitled Functional Aesthetics – Visions on Fashionable Technology few months ago, following her successful title Fashionable Technology from 2008.
Seymour takes everything into perspective. Firstly, the design of the book – binding and the concept are rather unique. The surface of the hardbook is covered with beige rip fabric showing softness and roughness of the used material at the same time.

In 2010 textile artist from Serbia Nena Skoko organized a 3rd edition of Remade Artservis workshop, opening gallery space to new art investigations on recycling and participatory creativeness. From 26th October till 1st November ladies and gents were making art on the theme Global Pop Pixel.
My next free e-book is AbstractHacktivism – The Making of Hacker Culture by Otto von Busch and Karl Palmås. A must book in every (e-)library.
If you’re trying to find some time for yourself,von Busch’s book ‘Post-script to Fashion-able, or a methodological appendix to activist design research‘ is also highly recommendable for winter days. Enjoy good reading!
