Highlights from the Design Fests first Parque La Libertad edition

first_img Facebook Comments Fernanda Romano speaks about the role technology has in our daily lives. Melissa Sánchez/The Tico Times The last speaker for the evening was Ji Lee, creative director for Facebook and Instagram.“For me creativity is a myth,” Lee said. “Creativity is something that everyone has. Everybody here has it. We just don’t know how to express creativity.  People think creatives are artists, but creative people are just people who think differently. Going to work everyday, the same road, the same street and just choosing a different road just to see how it is, that is being creative. Everybody can do that.”Lee explained how he applied this out-of-the-box thinking to creating a fun new typography: he deconstructed the linear structure of the alphabet to create the Universal Revolved 3D alphabet, whose letters are rotated around their vertical axis. Ji Lee is Facebook and Instagram’s creative director. Melissa Sánchez/The Tico TimesLee said the key, for him, is to always have fun when working.“What I realized is that when I do personal projects, when I have fun with what I do, great things happen,” he said. “Not only doing, but sharing them with the world. Inspiration is always everywhere, especially in mundane things. I just try to observe wherever I go, whomever I talk to, even if I’m on the subway. I just observe things, and I have funny thoughts about it and I try to express them in a visual way.”One of his simplest projects came about through just such a focus on everyday fun. The Bubble Project began as a simple sticker in the shape of a speech bubble, which Lee pasted all over New York’s advertisements. The idea, according to the project webiste, was to allow people to write on the bubble and create a whole new message, thus “transforming these annoying corporate monologues into open public dialogues.”The project struck a nerve and has become an international sensation, with participants in 12 cities around the world listed on the site thus far.“An empowering thing I learned doing The Bubble Project was that I can do anything I want. I don’t need a lot of money. I don’t need a lot of resources around me to make a project happen. That was for me the biggest lesson,” he said. “If I have an idea and a passion, I can make that happen by myself.”For Costa Ricans seeking more ideas and more passion like those displayed at the Parque La Libertad stage, we’ll keep our eyes on the FID, in all its incarnations. The massive International Design Festival (FID) has been taking place in San José since 2009 to showcase Costa Rica as a creative hub. However, the FID’s organizers, Alfredo Enciso and Paco Cervilla, decided this year to increase the frequency of offerings, and on June 30 launched a special edition of the FID at the Parque La Libertad in Desamparados with guest speakers Ji Lee, Fernanda ‘Fefa’ Romano and Luciano Goizueta.Goizueta kicked off the event with an unusual session that combined visual and audio presentations. The artist described his recent research, in which he combines Albert Einstein’s unified field theory and the work of scientist Nassim Haramein with his artistic production.“It takes the sun 226 million years to completely rotate around the galaxy,” he told the audience. “This means that the last time the sun was where it currently is, dinosaurs were just beginning to appear. Time is space. Time is equal to movement… I created a snail-shaped staircase with 12 steps. Each step corresponds to one month. January is the first step, February the second one, and so on. There’s always a twelfth and last step that’s connected to a new snail shaped staircase, which is a new year.” The Costa Rican artist Luciano Goizueta shows his ideation process. Melissa Sánchez/The Tico TimesGoizueta plans to structure his life story with four chapters. Each chapter is equivalent to twelve years, so in total it would be 48 years in the making of a personal process through an artistic medium.Marketing and advertising specialist Fernanda Romano, of Brazil, who was named one of the 100 Most Influential Women in Advertising by Advertising Age, spoke about technology and social media. She described inspiration she drew from a speech that U.S. President Barack Obama delivered at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, earlier this year.“He talked about citizen action and how tech is the new government,” Romano recalled, adding that Obama “recruited” his audience to address social problems through technology. “That’s not what your government can do for you, that’s what you can do for your government, and now we have the tools.”She pointed to Code for America as examples of the kind of change technology can create, or the use of virtual reality in the United States to help sidestep the stigma of post-combat therapy.“VR is the newest, most important medicine, so there’s a whole new program at the U.S. army were you’re treating returning fighters from Iraq and Afghanistan with post-traumatic stress disorder,” she said. “They’re the American heroes. They don’t want to go to a shrink. They don’t want to talk to a therapist. So the U.S. army develops an artificial intelligence psychiatrist, so these guys put on a headset and talk to an imaginary person and they do therapy because they think that’s not a person, so it’s okay to show my weakness.” Related posts:Arts and culture in brief: the week ahead in Costa Rica 2017 International Design Festival to feature wide range of guests 5 questions for Costa Rican sculptor José Sancho Arts and culture in brief: the week ahead in Costa Ricalast_img read more

Yermasoyia dam overflows first time in seven years Update 2

first_imgReservoirs around the island are now 51.8 per cent full, senior official from the Water Development Department Phedros Roussis announced on Monday morning. The amount of water in all of them combined is now 150.8 million cubic metres (mcm).In the past three days, 10.5 mcm have flowed into the reservoirs, he said.Last year at this time the reservoirs were only filled to 15 per cent of capacity, and most of them were nearly empty.Yermasoyia dam in the Limassol district is the latest to have overflowed, breaking its banks shortly before 11pm on Sunday night, with the water flow greeted by a small crowd including the mayor of Yermasoyia.This was only the fifth time the reservoir, with a capacity of 13.5 mcm, has been filled to capacity since it started operating in 1968. The last time the dam overflowed was in February 2012.In January 2018 it was only 3.8 per cent full.In statements to CNA, the mayor of Yermasoyia, Kyriakos Xydias, said he was thrilled, as were locals.“We had a huge problem with the drought in previous years. The amount of water was minimal and was approaching rock bottom but fortunately nature has provided,” he said.“We are happy because it provides us with reserves for the next two to three years.”He added that around 200 residents had gathered on Sunday night to watch the dam overflow. More visited on Monday morning, he said.The waters did bring up a lot of reeds from the bottom of the reservoir but these will be removed by the water development department.Xydia also said the municipality was on alert to deal with possible flooding from overflowing rivers.“We have taken many preventative measures but nature is always unpredictable,” he said.Due to the overflow of the dam, the parking area on the river bed at Amathos remains closed, while the public is urged to be particularly careful in crossing the small bridges above the river and to comply with traffic signs.The next dam that is expected to overflow in the Limassol district is that of Polemidhia, which has a capacity of 3.4 mcm.Roussis said that this January saw the largest water inflow in one month.“From the first to the 20th of the month, the amount of water flowing into the reservoirs was 103.4 million cubic metres,” he said, adding that the second largest water inflow in one month was 92.6 Elsewhere, the effects of the recent bad weather are not completely over as police warned a number of roads were still considered dangerous on Monday.In the Limassol district, the road from Mandria to Ayios Nicolaos was closed due to rock and landslides.Because of overflowing rivers and landslides, the roads from Ayios Nicolaos to Pera Vasa, the Salamiou – Galataria and the Kelokedaros – Amargetis – Natas roads in the Paphos region were also closed.Roads in the Troodos area were slippery and drivers are advised to be extremely careful.On Monday, temperatures rose to 15C inland, 17C in most coastal areas and 6C in the higher mountains.Some light rain and snow was forecast for Monday and Tuesday.Warmer weather is predicted for Wednesday and Thursday, when dust levels will be higher than normal. You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.

a unique style of weaving popularly known as the double ikat patola It is an ancient and intricate technique of tie or knot dyeing on the warp and weft separately before weaving Traditional patterns emerge in jewel colours mostly from the memory of the weavers in a spectacular mosaic reflected on both sides of the woven fabric This serves as a perfect metaphor for the wide canvas of languages and dialects that reflect India’s cultural and linguistic diversity India’s rich linguistic heritage is similar to streams that flow separately but often mingle In that interaction one regional culture deepens and enriches the other Languages are specific to the cultural environment and these manifestations of the need to communicate are dynamic The creation of states in India on the basis of language erected artificial political boundaries between regions These served to curb flowing dynamic cultures across areas with shared affinities apart from differences in language or dialect The history of this ancient civilisation is characterised by an incredible cultural continuity In each community the evolution of different languages reflects an imaginative response to geographical resources and spaces Crossing time and space communities bonded with each other There is an inherent societal-behavioural idea of continuity of constant adaptation and assimilation When the soul that characterises the country remains unchanged why disturb the equilibrium When cultural identities are structured there is always tension within the social fabric and the price communities pay for this politicisation is socio-cultural chaos For any meaningful cultural policy directive in the context of India it is essential to constantly keep in view the complex intricate and multi-layered multi-dimensional cultural fabric of the country both in time and space There has been much debate over a directive prescribing the use of Hindi in the government’s social media communication and encouraging the use of Hindi for governmental official communication Such directives like many others ignore India’s intrinsic linguistic diversity and inherent plurality and appear to be a politicisation of cultural heritage Although they claim that it is the only way to promote a sense of national pride and nationalism they defy the essence of what this civilisation is about Our sense of nationalism in the 19th century emerged when the British introduced several tools that created networks across the physical landscape such as the postal and transport systems and various documentation institutions for example the Anthropological and Archaeological Surveys of India English was a major ingredient in the creation of the sense of being a nation As Kapila Vatsyayan says there are 50000 unread estampages of inscriptions from our monuments and coins lying in the epigraphical sections of the Archaeological Survey of India in Mysore and Nagpur Inscriptions in innumerable monuments remain undeciphered even today This is because many of our major languages have more than one script For example Marathi has four and similarly there are different scripts for Pali Prakrit Kharoshti Arabic Persian and the Dravidian languages However today we have no more than 35 inscription readers all more than 70 years old There is an urgent need to invest in a mentorship programme in order to develop a larger pool of skilled people to conserve languages Otherwise the stories our monuments can tell will remain unheard While it is imperative for the government to prepare policy/ vision statements the principle of less government in the field of culture needs to be followed immediately There are as many as 10 ministries dealing with matters relating to different aspects of culture This results in a fragmented approach and piecemeal attention to problems and issues The first step could be to bring all these matters under one umbrella ministry or department alongside the setting up of an advisory body of balanced and progressive cultural professionals for example Indologists anthropologists historians sociologists linguists and art specialists Only then can we move

Satakarni hangover Time and again he has appreciated director Krish for his film Gautamiputra Satakarni Now the Baahubali creator has written a long letter to Krish sharing how he was wrong in thinking that the film couldn’t be made More from the world of Entertainment: Rajamouli said he had several doubts about whether the script was backed by enough research as he thought “none of us are equipped with the minimum knowledge about this emperor” Rajamouli also said he was very anxious about how the audience would take the film Apart from the script the director also wasn’t sure about Krish teaming with Balakrishna He had thought both of them were a “meticulously bad combination” to be working on the film However after watching Gautamiputra Satakarni Rajamouli said that Krish proved him wrong He said Krish “thrashed all the suspicious perceptions” into pieces by making Gautamiputra Satakarni into a commercially viable feature film Read his full letter here: Dear Friend… You Thrashed Our Perception Dear Anjaniputra Krish I had the eye feast of watching your visual brilliance Gautamiputra Satakarni Last one week I am being possessed by memories of this special experience You being busy and engaged in success celebrations touring the United States I could not wait long in sharing my emotions with you So I decided to express all my inner feelings in your style and forwarding this letter through media ambassador Hope you will accept and read my representation Frankly speaking I have a confession to make before you I admire you as director for your sensibilities in Gamyam Vedam and Kanche But I never soaked up with news of you directing Balakrishna’s 100th film when media attentively grabbed my excitement I thought it was a gossip item because you are a filmmaker with endearment to select stories based on human life while Balakrishna is a hero with larger than life image I considered both of you as meticulously a bad combination Later I was startled when Gautamiputra Satakarni moved into pre production mode As an academician I had many doubts on Gautamiputra Satakarni story because none of us equipped with minimum knowledge about this emperor Except Nasik inscription we have no information about him You left me again go shocked I felt anxiously restless ruminating all the facts like when or where will your Satavahan research end and how far audience can accept your story about an unfamiliar king Meanwhile one more shock was waiting for me and Gautamiputra Satakarni progressed into production phase Morocco Georgia Maheshwaram in Madhya Pradesh… no rest no intervals; the stains of your devoted team work and firm resolution to wrap the shooting in 79 days increased my heart beat Innumerable horde of questions went through my mind How did you plan the production Who is your principal designer Where have you erected the historical sets How many days have you shot the wars Is it really possible to architect huge magnitude of VFX works with an uncompromising quality Finally the time has come It was January 12th early morning premier show and I too was exhilarated like regular Nandamuri Balakrishna fans to watch Gautamiputra Satakarni Just two hours and you made me realise that every impossible event can be turned into a possible reality I journeyed deep into the annals of historical first century visiting Shaka Purushudu Sarvabhouma Satakarni because for me Balakrishna was never on the screen I cheered loud on every dialogue every scene like a standard Balakrishna fan as you discovered a new dimension in heroism A film which would have been pure historical documentary is transliterated into a historical commercial blockbuster Your predominantly screenplay based narrative made Telugu audience to twirl their moustache in pride Generally wars are filled with huge bloodshed and violence but there are amazing emotions in your war to hold the film strongly together Gautamiputra Satakarni is a neatly weaved visual grandeur with poetic elucidation of wonderfully written scenes Satavahana’s are a part of history You created history by making Gautamiputra Satakarni into a commercially viable feature film Million Thanks for you and your team for thrashing all our suspicious perceptions into pieces I also take a bow before Basavarama Taraka Putra Balakrishna garu’s judgment in voting for a

in Begum Jaan is so angry Express photo by Prashant Nadkar 05th April 2017 Mumbai Related News In Begum Jaan you play the title role of a madam who refuses to budge from her brothel which falls in the way of the Indo-Pak border being drawn during Partition She is unapologetic about her profession and power Is that what appealed to you As she says in the film “Randi ko randi bolna bhi koi gaali hoti hai Police wale ko do toh shayad gaali hoti (If you call a whore a whore how is that abuse If you call a cop one maybe it is)” No woman chooses to be a prostitute; her circumstances must have led Begum Jaan to be one But she cannot be slut-shamed Since this is what she does she may as well play on the front foot Why is she so stubborn about not moving from the border Why does she put the other girls at risk What else do people like her have to hold on to No one has stood by her She was probably sold to a pimp and that’s how she became a prostitute When even her bodily space has been violated this physical space is all she can call ‘mine’ And ‘physical space’ can be very personal Countries go to war for it Everyone is territorial She knows these girls will come and go she understands their pain but she isn’t a mother She is not asking anyone to stay and fight She says ‘This place is mine and I will fight for it’ How territorial are people in the film industry Does someone like you who has earned acclaim also have to fight for her space Everyone is negotiating to keep their space all the time not just as an actor but also as an individual a woman When I married Siddharth (Roy Kapur) people would ask me if he has a say in the films I do I’d have to explain that I don’t tell him what films to produce and he doesn’t decide what films I act in Even the most powerful women find the need to negotiate their position They are torn between conditioning and playing by patriarchal rules in order to survive in a patriarchal setup For instance I get asked how I balance home and work But no one asks my husband that Recently when Siddharth and I came back from a holiday he didn’t have to bother to check if the kitchen is stocked but I did No one asked me to do it but I did; that is conditioning If I ask Siddharth to take charge he will probably tell me we have a cook for that job But as a woman I will still feel I need to supervise the cook You pick strong women protagonists in films — Silk in The Dirty Picture Krishna in Ishqiya or Durga Rani Singh in the Kahaani series What’s the common thread that runs through all of them They are all well-rounded women which invariably makes them strong I am not interested in playing diabetically sweet women who are unreal Or even just badass characters Maybe they are both maybe they are more of one than the other But I want to play real people who have their flaws issues aggression and passion I like to know people’s stories and I like to tell such stories on screen Strong women don’t have to be alike The Durga I play in Kalimpong in Kahaani 2 is quiet and withdrawn But Begum Jaan is nothing like Durga Durga wanted to be invisible Begum Jaan is unmissable You don’t want to play ‘sweet’ characters Ironically that’s the public persona you have (Laughs) I have a lot in common with the characters I play on screen There’s a lot of angst in me as a person and as a woman I get angry very easily My family will tell you I am short-tempered I get angry if I am taken for granted if people misbehave with others if they don’t treat another individual as equal… Maybe I am thin-skinned because I am an actor I allow things to affect me Where is this anger rooted For instance the criticism I received all those years My sister would ask me why I’m being so zen about it but I now realise I was probably internalising it I was also young — I joined the industry at 26 when other actors arrived at a younger age I wanted people to like me because I also had to make up for the years I had lost Over time I have been shedding all those layers and coming into my own and the roles I play have a great deal to do with it The first time you spoke up was after Heyy Baby when you pointed out the pressures of looking glamorous on and off the screen When I look back I see it was more about what I wanted to do as an actor In the years since I have not taken up any role I don’t want to Is that why your characters are so angry Yes I get to channel it in the films But it’s not just anger at the industry At home I was always made to believe I am special But as a fat child when you step into the real world people start attaching tags Then while growing up you want to be liked and try to shed all that weight you try to be a certain kind of person When you become an actor many more people are watching you which makes you more cautious Acting has helped me come into my own every time It’s probably why I choose such characters to channel the part of me that felt rejected You have also spoken against being fat-shamed It doesn’t happen as often anymore perhaps because now I am married People associate thin with being desirable which you need to be till you are married which I now am But I still get to hear it sometimes To them I’d like to point out the tag line of Begum Jaan: ‘My body my rules’ While making choices did you deal with the insecurity of becoming irrelevant as an actor So I don’t drive Not that I don’t know how to but I am the kind of person who will let loose once I am behind the wheel And that’s what happens at work as well Once I make a decision I don’t hold back Luckily it’s okay to do that in films but not on the road My family too has helped me been my strong support system told me I have nothing to fear if I do the right things and give it my all You have always credited your family and the neighbourhood you grew up in Chembur for where you are today I grew up in a typical Tamil household a protected environment in a middle-class neighbourhood Even at my lowest I could always come home to my family and feel special That life is beyond being an actor Until 15 I didn’t step out of Chembur Even today on a bad day I like to drive through the leafy lanes of that neighbourhood and visit the Sai Baba mandir The people I grew up around were never enamoured by stars but by art They have kept me rooted How do you view your career now given that the last three films have not worked at the box office But the range of roles has only been widening Eight years ago when I started doing characters like in Ishqiya the industry wasn’t making as many female-centric films Today there are more such films and more actors doing these films Of course my last few films haven’t done well and I’ve been heartbroken but I have moved on Box-office success or failure today hardly indicates if a film is good or not A film that doesn’t do well in theatres may fare excellently on TV Even social media which people seem to swear by these days can be misleading Also read:Begum Jaan movie review: Vidya Balan tries to invest some feeling into her role which soon turnsclichéd How much has the industry changed in the 15 years you have been here There may be more women-centric films but the dynamics are still skewed and male star-driven Most of the money invested by the makers goes in their fee But yes people today are open to all kinds of stories genres and treatment Many women actors have raised their voices to demand equal pay as their male contemporaries Is that a battle you have to fight as well No because I hardly work with male stars I ask for a certain fee especially since the budget of the films I do is also limited But if the makers tell me they cannot make the film if they pay me that amount I tell them don’t make it then So now people don’t use that excuse with me anymore Do you feel films with big stars may not have characters for you Absolutely It is why I don’t do those kind of films I don’t even get offered those anymore For
