Archeology: Walkman

April 17, 2014

These children's reaction to the Sony Walkman is quite fascinating. What interests me most is how this is regarded as a curiosity, with no kind of genealogy to a music device of today.

Gilded Birds

I met with Kerry Shaw last week to talk about ideas of beauty for her website Gilded Birds.
I chose this small bronze sculpture of Spencer Tracy made by Katharine Hepburn, which she used to travel with.

Kerry explains her site thus:

The porcelain makers of the eighteenth century believed that they were creating some of the most beautiful objects in the world. These painted figurines and gilded vases were miracles of craftsmanship in their day but are no longer seen by most people as beautiful objects. In fact some people find them hideous. Artists of today and tomorrow will always reject and react against previous ideals of beauty. But fashionable or not, we are still surrounded by beauty in the world. We are asking some of the world's greatest creative minds to show us one object of beauty that can contribute to a bigger picture of today's ideal.

"With the good, the true and the useful, man is merely in earnest; but with the beautiful he plays." Schiller
