Few people were able to see Window Blow Out. The year was 1976, and the Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies in New York was presenting the show Idea as Model, featuring new utopian proposals then being put forward by leading US architects of the day. The night before the opening, though, Gordon Matta-Clark borrowed an air gun from the artist Dennis Oppenheim and shot out the windows in one of the exhibition spaces. In the casements of these he then proceeded to mount photographs of housing projects in the South Bronx, whose windows had been smashed by the tenants themselves. These photographs that document Matta-Clark’s most outstanding work, are now included in the collective exhibition Modernologies. Contemporary Artists Researching Modernity and Modernism.

100% Norway Review by Sarah Brownlee

Curated for the fourth year in a row by Henrietta Thompson, currently Senior Architecture Editor at Wallpaper magazine, it’s another showstopper for the Norwegian team in a subtle, Scandinavian kind of a way.
The stand has been masterminded by Norwegian design duo StokkeAustad (that’s Jonas Ravlo Stokke and Oystein Austad) and the inspiration is suitably authentic. It is in fact based on the design of a ‘hjeller’ – a scaffold structure found along the Norwegian coastline, most commonly used for drying fish on.

How materials can and do effect what you taste .

Zoe Laughlin from Materials Library at Kings College University was at the100% Materials feature on Friday to talk about taste and materials. Its not something that strikes most designers as being important when selecting materials for projects but Zoe demonstrated that the materials that come into contact with your food and drink can have an impact on what you taste. For example Zoe blindfolded me and asked me to taste six spoons made from different metals including: silver, stainless steel, copper, gold and chrome. With each of these materials I could taste the difference between something like gold that leaves no taste in your mouth at all, to copper which reacts wildly with all the taste buds and saliva to give you an intensely metallic aftertaste. She has been working with an Indian restaurant to help them use the right metals for their cutlery because in this area of culinary peaks and troughs the range of sensations can be enhanced or enriched by the accompanying material.
