Interplanetary Architecture is a style of building and site design that I'm presently conceiving. The idea is to design structures and sites suitable for [essentially] any planet. Curiously, this has arisen in tandem with the recent images of Jupiter having returned from the passing satellite, sent from Earth years ago.
As a visionary polymath and lifelong artist, I have never seen a major distinction between art inside of a house and a house created as a work of art. The "Algebra House" represents this, and in 2010 when I interviewed Barry Bergdoll, Chief Curator of Architecture at the Museum of Moder Art (MoMA), one of the statements he made was that "Architecture concerns everybody. It's the art form that really influences the quality of our daily lives most directly. If our schools would take that on we'd have a much more engaged citizenry."
From Democracy Now!: Amy Goodman talks with "world-renowned spoken word artist Saul Williams discusses his career of mixing poetry, music and acting; reads some of his poetry; talks about how he became an activist; and describes the concept of his new album, "MartyrLoserKing.""
J. Michael Welton is a major recorder of all things interesting and worthy in the world of art and design, and very few hold the gravitas of Welton when it comes to modern and contemporary Architecture—including practices in sustainability—and basically, the last century of building-at-large.
Can it be that Donald Trump represents the future of global politics? Sociopolitical experts like Robert Reich, Gina Apostol, Walter Baier and Eric Weitz, say extremism is here to stay—that however objectionable, Donald Trump and his ilk are protected by a new Salonfähig, which formerly ensured the swift rise of Nazi Germany.
Without the past there can be no present or pathway to the future, and with the knowledge that the telling of history determines who is most enfranchised in the everyday, there is at least one story about the history of art and education in the 20th century deserving a much closer and careful examination. This is an epic story about the roots of modern art told in a new book I'm writing, entitled From Bauhaus | To Black Mountain.
