AI: Ethics, Philosophy and Spirituality
This weekend Jac and I drove all the way across Germany, from Paris, and parked up on the banks of the Danube in Austria to cover ARS Electronica Fesitval , the festival for Art, Technology and Society in Linz. Over a thousand artists, scientists, techies, hackers, activists and entrepreneurs are in town to exhibit and perform around this year's theme of Artificial Intelligence. The festival examines our relationship with robots, our hopes and fears around AI and what it will mean for us - but it also plays on AI as the Andere Ich, the Other I - and p
QEdit - fast publishing of photos at last!
yes, the best use of images is via a database but that is slow and new just images keep coming - in 100s and 1000s. besides, which images to publish? when people are involved it gets complicated. i have now added a new tool to my photo app - QEdit (this is a working name), where images can be be quickly published just by copying them into a new folder. other folders can also be created, currently one where you can put images you want deleted but other options will be added. the lack of database limits the scope to just array() functions - the images
Wimbledon
Here are two images from a super shoot I did with the lovely Photographer Paul O'Connor for Wimbledon! It was such fun to walk down the street with the tennis guy head:) Yummy Strawberries and Ice Cream:)
Visa
This has got to be one of the most fun shoots ever with the amazing Photographer Dan Burn Forti. I was lucky enough to produce this for the fabulous production company ManaMedia Uk. It was just a dream team, and I learnt so much throughout the whole shoot. It was my first job for them producing and this was such the perfect job for me ! I felt so lucky to have been asked!
Sainsbury's
Oh such a super lovely day with lots of little ones, with fabulous Photographer Jo Sax for Sainsbury's. I wanted to take this one home:)

MARKS AND SPENCER
Last summer I was lucky enough to work on several lovely images with Photographer Paul O'Connor for M&S. It was a super fun shoot to work on with such a lovely team. Here are just two images from that shoot, and I must say it was such fun building the kids tent:
Strangers. An interview with Jiwei Han
In my heart I love to know strangers, communicate with strangers, or to have some kind of relationship with strangers. I think this project is based on the innermost expectation of connection with strangers. But in Beijing's undergrounds, people are crowded together exaggeratedly, shoulder by shoulder, face to face. A girl's long hair can touch my face when she swings her head, I can smell the fragrance of the shampoo she used. A video posted by Jiwei Han (@jiweihan) on Nov 14, 2016 at 5:00pm PST Perhaps the distance between my face and a str

Shoot with Tim Barber for Airbnb
Before the crew arrived there was a moment of self-doubt and when I thought, "I can't do this". But then I went to the crew bus and met Amanda, a beautiful soul and a great make-up artist who exuded warmth and put me at ease straight away.♥ The crew was just fantastic, great fun to have around and it was a real pleasure to work with Tim Barber. I thought it would all end up on the cutting room floor! Thanks to Jac for the photos, love and support and for making it all happen.♥ Tim Barber, Pho
#talkingpeace
In this new paradigm of peace, there are many contributors, Phil Vernon explains. The organisation he heads up has nearly 30 years experience in the peacebuilding sector, but it's still only achieving about 5% of what could be done, he estimates, perhaps modestly. "Most of the work has to be done by people who don't see themselves as peace builders," he says, "Such as the artists here...." We're chatting at the opening of #ART4PEACE, part of a month-long festival of art, comedy, music...put on by International Alert. The exhibition, "Peace from t
Is ManKind?
Is ManKind? Asks the Airbnb ad. "Are we good? Look through their windows so you can understand their views." And what's the current picture? We see 3 year old Aylan Kurdi lying dead on a Turkish beach. Thousands of people have died on the mediterranean crossing, fleeing wars in the Middle East. And for those who get to Hungary? We see hundreds trying to board trains in Budapest, being hit by helmeted riot police. The refugees are trying to get further north to Germany, which believes there's a moral duty to accept those fleeing genuine peril. And if the
El Ultimo Grito - Rosario Hurtado explains the philosophy behind her part in the the fig-2 run at the ICA studio in London.
"I think it's madness!" Rosario exclaims when I ask her about the current architectural policy in London. "But that's part of our work, Roberto and I, it's not just about creating things, it's about understanding the world around us, things that don't make sense to us, it's philosophical." The duo, who've been lovers and artistic soulmates for over 25 years are currently exhibiting at the ICA studio in London. El Ultimo Grito are the 33rd show in the fig-2 project, which hosts fifty exhibitions in fifty weeks. Their work's inspired by the young,
RawTag and Adriana Chavez for the sustainability in terms of Art and education. Fast Fashion Pollutes our planet.
I want to specially thank Artist Carmen Lamberti for having invited me to be one of her team. RAW TAG is Art, Education and Sustainability. Yes I am an Artist, I can also prove that I was a good university educator, but I had defenitely never been a person related to sustainability, further than getting mad about canned food or not finding black seeds in the red summer watermelon. I have kept many clothes of my youth, I still wear them, but now I have a good reason to tell the world that my grandmother was the best fashion designer in G
Goddess.
The chief characteristic of the goddess in her crescent phase is that she is virgin. Her instinct is not used to capture or possess the man whom she attracts.She does not reserve herself for the chosen man who must repay her by his devotion, nor is her instinct used to gain for herself the security of husband, home and family. She remains virgin, even while being goddess of love. She is essentially one-in-herself. She is not merely the feminine counterpart of a male god with similar characteristics and functions, modified to suit her feminine form. On
Convertirse en BU-BU. Adriana Chavez Garcia-Rendon. Científica de la Comunicación por la UAM-X.
Atentando contra las leyes del método científico, que me inculcó un cuidadoso protocolo de investigación que arranca con la formulación de una hipótesis y la construcción de sus marcos epistemológico y teórico, inicio este divertimento del revés, con las conclusiones, confesando sin más para mis lectores menos pacientes: BU-BU (Burgués Budista) es un término ácido que no ataca al budismo sino a los ingenuos reconvertidos que, en situaciones que no saben controlar, estallan en acciones contradictorias e irrespetuosas para con sus recien
the price of the Free
human relations were always rooted in Reciprocity. until now. the new Internet-based economy enables massive, global-scale delivery of goods, information, functionality - advertised and widely accepted as "free". but, there is nothing free in business, if the product is free it's because you are the product - say the programmers. the fundamental problem is that without Reciprocity not only economic but also social structures tumble, like a house of cards... and this is what we are seeing, everywhere within Internet's reach. the true cost of you
extending my photo app Photographed
Taking photos is great fun but dealing with them later is very time consuming and that time is hard to find. some years ago i built a simple web application to manage my photos of people, i improve it whenever i find time, although the development work is continuing what's most important is already there - you can select your images and add data to them - that information is stored in the database and can be used in countless ways in the future - on NetCells, on my site, on your site etc. # the main purpose of the Photo App is simply to deliver the p

Jane Chapman, harpsichord, Oriental Miscellany, Hindustani Airs, Leverhulme Trust,
Jane Chapman's recording for harpsichord of 'The Oriental Miscellany' will be released April 2015 on Signum Classics (SIGCD415).

Published in Calcutta in 1789 it was considered an important historical source, reflecting Western fascination with the East, and the vogue for Hindustani Airs.
Welcombe
Wide empty beach Two surfers, heads glistening like seals in the morning sun Silver slivers of sand creeping like fingers between the jagged rocks Inviting memories of footprints through the years My birthday When we sat in the cave and ate cake The sea fog huddled round us like blankets It was the hottest day of the year But not there Golden evenings cooking on the fire Smoke clinging to salty skin Damp towels and sea curled hair And IKEA bags The night we stayed too late Singing on a sand bank As the tide came in around our toes Mad scramble up the cl
Slipping away
I can feel you slipping away As the light drains from the sky Fingers running through dusty hair You turn your face to the wind Pulling down your shutters to keep out Any thoughts of me Drowning under mountains of washing and odd socks You move forward alone Head bent against the bitter wind Drill and saw your lullaby Cool marble heads your companions Watching silently as you sleep As dawn breaks will they fight your corner? I would wait for you till summer Until your ship comes in And tall grasses jostle in the spring breeze Whispering your name If yo
Miserable Old Men
I sit here at this place And Look around myself I feel the old fear comfortably settled on the few tables Stools, people. Some miserable old man looks at me from across the room Into my eyes But, through my brain and my soul Past the dirty wall behind me and Into the abyss beyond. As I watch back, he doesn’t move And his drink is almost empty And mine was once full.
Good old fashioned none sense, but thats for you to decide.
I smoke my cigarette, I gaze at the dead crimson flower lying lifelessly, limp upon the table, the smoke rises, my ring shines, I hear the freshly started conversations of those around me, they all seem so… well, into it, although I couldn’t possibly care less what they are talking about, I hear them laugh. I laughed today, I laughed a good deal, and maybe made a bad one ‘hahaha’, I laugh in my head and press my numb hands to my forehead. ‘Damn, sometimes I make some fucking bad choices’, I cant help but giggle again in the back of my mind.
About my personal process of creating in Contemporary Art
I needed a point where to start from. The Art Critic Montse Hormigós, who was commissioned by the Univertisy of Valencia to analize and comment my work, focusing on two of my main Video Art pieces: "Necrosemantica" (1988) and "La Republica de Addy" (2012). The day we met, Montse and I enjoyed of the sun on the terrace of my beautiful house in Valencia (now I live in a dark dirty room in London) and we had a long talk about life and Art. I would start from "La Republica de Addy" and support my background over "Necrosemantica" theoretical basis
Eskuz ala Makinaz ? - my interview for the Aldiri architecture magazine
this morning i received a printed copy of Aldiri architectural magazine with my interview, done in June. it is all in Euskara (Basque) language, `eskuz ala makinaz´ means `manually or mechanically (automatically)´. the cover - suitably stark - features the black and white version of my `robot-vendor´ image, made for The Economist in 1997. full English text and Aldiri site on the links below.
"El hombre se contempla" by Adriana Chavez "Men stare at themselves"
It was in the late eighties (1988) when I won a contest at Universidad de Valencia for my documentary project "EL HOMBRE SE CONTEMPLA". I was taking my first doctorate course in Publicity and Mass Media after my Social Communication Scientist grade in México City, where the most avant-garde learning techniques opened my mind to a wide range of critic thinking skills. No memorizing system was allowed in my University where all matters were discussed daily, in order to get the best researching and writing goals. So, when I entered the classroom in m
Russafart, culture against reality shows by Adriana Chavez
We all agree that the meaning of Culture is a concept wich envolves all human activities, from the way we percieve smells and flavours to the very high and sophisticated skills related to acknowledgement achievement. Every single human community has its own culture. Or, at least, it should have it. Globalization comes and brutally beats this fact. Since past century, -more precisely since news travel that fast thanks to the print invention in the XVII, and the newspapers take immages and tales from here to there trhough television- cultures have

Las Selfies de Adriana Chavez a propósito del transtorno de la Selfitis
Una de mis tareas como científica de la comunicación es analizar el reciente fenómeno de las "selfies" o autorretratos normalmente tomados con la cámara del teléfono móvil. Cabe preguntarse, a partir de un debate surgido recientemente en Los Estados Unidos de Norteamérica, a través de su Sociedad Nacional de Psiaquiatría, calificando de transtorno mental el abuso de esta práctica: ¿Qué implica la comunicación a través de nuestra imagen? En esta era de no-discursos, de falta de relatos, el cuerpo se convierte en el principal de ellos.

El debate semántico entre los conceptos de "patria" y "país" en España por Adriana "Addy" Chávez
La cantante Mexicana Lüla Reyna en una de sus presentaciones: los colores verde blanco y rojo de la bandera mexicana, siempre están presentes. Los mexicanos aún no tenemos problemas con el concepto de "patria", o al menos eso es lo que creo. La bandera y la Virgen de Guadalupe siguen siendo iconos abrazados tanto por derechas como por izquierdas; por vanguardistas y por conservadores. ¿Por qué? En España, el debate semántico entre los conceptos: patria, república, y anarquía dividió a la sociedad en tres bandos irreconciliables. La patria

Good news for the "x" by Adriana Chávez

She is Claudia Marinclan, young and vital. During our first meeting due to lodge her or not, she convinced me quickly: her language, mexican spanish, is a great value for me as a scriptwriter. Using the "X" to avoid referring both sex genres in spanish ("her" and "His") is maybe the most useful contribution to the future of Spanish language. When debates talk about a
Los nuevos dioses por Adriana Chávez.
Photographer: Jac Depczyk En una reciente reflexión, escuchada de paso en la BBC sobre las necesidades espirituales de los serxs humanxs, recordé una conversación al respecto que tuve hace unos 25 años con un amigo sociólogo. ambxs opinábamos, llegando por caminos opuestos, que la etapa humana de espiritualidad llegaba a su fin. España vivía el posmodernismo con la soberbia del nuevo rico. La movida, decadente ya, aún lideraba la opinión de las generaciones jóvenes en el poder: vivir el momento y vivirlo al límite era la consigna. Recuer
My Miami Experience
December 10, 2013 Today my little apartment reeks of oil paint and white spirit. After the hedonism of sunny Miami I am back in snowy New York attacking my canvases with new vigour having been inspired by the likes of Susanna Bluhm, Ben Aronson, Alexander Kroll, Dennis Koch, Gerben Mulder, Jonathan McCree, Monique Rollins and Leslie Allen.

Three Months Ago Today
November 30, 2013 Three months ago today I was in London getting ready to board my flight to New York with Ruby in tow. I was nervous, excited and I admit a little hungover after a rather marvelous send off at the Chelsea Arts Club the night before. All my American friends were telling me to book my flights to Miami for Art Basel in December, however finances at the time were tight after all the moving costs plus I knew I had to completely furnish my new place and buy new computer equipment so felt I'd be better off spending my time staying in and p
Settling in
November 19, 2013 Having now settled into my second apartment in Manhattan in the space of two months (this is I'm told a typical 'Welcome to New York!' scenario) I am finally beginning to focus on my work as opposed to dealing with my new bank, broker, cell phone, cable, insurance and electricity providers. Furnishing my new apartment was relatively simple due to a kind soul trusting me with his ancient Range Rover for a solo trip to Ikea, but buying new furniture, computer equipment, brushes, canvases & paint isn't cheap on top of the big move and
Fotografía PHOTOGRAPHY antes de la crisis BEFORE THE CRISIS
ESTA SERIE: "Realidad en Abstracción" o "ABSTRACTING FIGURATIVE" fue realizada entre 2007 y 2008 como un deseo de jugar con la herramienta para deformar la realidad tal y como los medios de comunicación nos presentan la información. Hace varios años que investigo cuando un fenómeno social me llama la atención, en el sentido más estricto de la ciencia de la comunicación: me planteo una hipótesis, realizo un marco epistemológico de lo general a lo particular, investigo fuentes y campo, realizo estadísticas, ordeno los resultados y pruebo o no m

my automatic, almost effortless and sure method to learn foreign language fast with half-a-brain
while learning Spanish i was occasionally meeting people for language practice exchange and often had to tell them this: hombre, one or two years is plenty to get fluent in a language, if you are not speaking it after 5 years you are either faking it or going wrong somewhere. learning a language is not much fun - using a language certainly is - get there fast! here is my method and i am a living proof that it works: 1. you have to put in the time - giving it 2 hours a week you are just trying to persuade yourself and your friends you are doing somethi

Adobe Subcription Backlash
I am pretty disgusted with Adobe who are forcing all users into subscription only to use their software. I for one will find an alternative to Photoshop, maybe Corel, maybe Pixelmator, maybe someone will finally come up with an equally good alternative to photoshop. Many many people will suffer. Small businesses, freelancers, struggling artists cannot afford the monthly fees. Many people only want to use one app not the whole suite. I hope that Adobe suffer badly and that thousands worldwide will crack the cloud version of Adobe Suite so that Ado
Forays In To The World of Modelling - A Stock Photograph Model w/ Jac Depczyk
... So I got there eventually, I took a wrong turn and ended up at the wrong end of the road and ground to an excruciating halt in traffic, though there was nothing but green light, there was no movement. Luckily Jac is a lovely and laid back guy, the door opened and with an easy smile Jac welcomed me. So we’ve decided on round 2, but first I wanted to see what we’d got up to last week. I find myself kinda shocked at the first bunch, no make up and definitely in my mind not relaxed in the slightest. While my demeanour wasn’t showing up much ther

Saturday, had a great shoot with Jac! Prior to that I'd been doing some reading and came across the defintion of a gilded rose in alchemic terms.

It was a difficult location in which to shoot as the rooms were quite dark which added atmosphere but didn't necessarily illuminate the black latex to its best contours were sometimes lost. Darren Birkin did an amazing job with the location which he found. The venue is currently used for films and as a dance and music location.

Ectomorph launched some new styles at Rubbercult 3 on May 4th at a fantastic venue MaryJanes in EC3. Though the venue was difficult to present a fashion show we decided to make the most of the locations beautiful staircase and have the models walk through the crowds similar to the way in which department stores stage fashion shows. The models reflected our customer profile: maid's , larger women, older women , scene celebrities as well as the traditional fashion profile of younger girls. Images Zac Zenca

Ectomorph received another commission to make a set of pillow cases, duvet cover and fitted sheet for a client's bedroom. It turned out rather well and may now be offered as a standard accessory items. The items are stitched and so differentiate themselves from the many glued versions on offer.
Rubber Burkha
Just made my first latex Burkha for a customer. It was a challenge but i think worked out rather well. The customer wanted it made with the shiny side in and matt side visible , hence the dull appearance. Not the kind of thing EctoMorph normally does butit was great to do something different and the stitching on the seams give it our trademark look. The item is for personal use only and so won't been seen out in public

Rompiendo el hielo con HTMLy CB.
Lo primero que he pensado al tratar de aprender HTML, es que necesito un abecedario o un sistema de plantillas predefinidas para ir más rápido, (que seguramente ya existirá) pero me gustaría tratar de transmitir las sensaciones que ésto me prouduce "en vivo" es decir en tiempo real, y se que pareceré ignorantona en ésta materia para los que ya sepan como utilizarlo y comunicarse con el HTML. Para ir comentando los pensamentos e interrogantes que éste nuevo proyecto me produce, y queriendo ser fiel a ello, decido abrir un "cuaderno de bitácora
First Science Week in Quart de Poblet
CONTACT, película que ha sido proyectada durante la 1ª Semana de la Ciencia de Quart de Poblet, entre otras muchas actividades, charlas, actuaciones, exposiciones y eventos. Es éste un interesante film que abre un sinfín de dudas, cuestiones, reflexiones, planteamientos, etc. Es en definitiva, el anhelo del ser humano por saber y conocer sus orígenes y aún más saber cual será su proyección en un futuro.

Factory backdrop for Latex
Shot some new styles in an abandoned factory in suburban north London on a crisp Autumn day with two lovely red-headed girls. one with a slight resemblance to Mary Portas Queen of Shops. Both were delightful and showed off the new lines beautifully. A new pale blue trench coat worn over the classic EctoMorph high waisted pants superbly modelled by Sara Scarlet whose legs seemed to go on forever. Sophia St. Villier looked amazing in the red Riding Jacket and pink Skating dress. Another vintage session in a remarkable London Location.
Riding Jacket
Received this lovely photo from a couple who finally replaced an EctoMorph jacket after 10 years. A testament to EctoMorph"s durability and quality!
Latex Shoot in an Urban setting in High Barnet
Shot some new and revamped latex clothes in a run down old factory which provided a great contrast to the polished latex. We used two redheads with very different looks to show off the versatility of latex. Model: Sara Scarlet Photo: Darren Birkin
Artist Anna-Louise Felstead paints biplane dress for Goodwood Revival 2012
Motoring reportage artist Anna-Louise Felstead (aka A-L) has for the third year running hand painted a Vivien of Holloway dress kindly donated for Goodwood Revival. Previous designs for 2010 & 2011 (shown below) depict race cars, however this year she decided to go with an aeroplane theme. Usually these dresses are painted weeks in advance although this year was a bit last minute with A-L hastily painting the dress from 10.30pm until midnight the night before The Revival on her cousin Olivia's kitchen table. Painting on clothing is easily done with

Posing outside the Houses of Parliament and the Lloyds Building
Darren Birkin, Stephanie and myself used the Houses of Parliament, the River Thames and the Lloyds building as a backdrop for my business inspired suit. It was a freezing cold day , but with all location shots one takes a chance and hope that the weather will be on our side. Stephanie was fantastic and didn't complain at all. She was stealthily photographed by tourists and stood in a corridor of wind whilst Darren photographed her in two locations fabulous London Landmarks. www.darrenbirkin.com

The thin black pants look EXACTLY like classic Armani silk pants, which we saw and photographed on a model in the Em
