50 Years Ago, This Was a Wasteland. He Changed Everything | Short Film Showcase

Author: National Geographic
Via YouTube | April 24, 2017

 

Almost 50 years ago, fried chicken tycoon David Bamberger used his fortune to purchase 5,500 acres of overgrazed land in the Texas Hill Country. Planting grasses to soak in rains and fill hillside aquifers, Bamberger devoted the rest of his life to restoring the degraded landscape. Today, the land has been restored to its original habitat and boasts enormous biodiversity. Bamberger’s model of land stewardship is now being replicated across the region and he is considered to be a visionary in land management and water conservation.

About Short Film Showcase:
The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic’s belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.

In Selah: Water from Stone by Fin & Fur Films, see how former Church’s Chicken CEO David Bamberger transformed a desert wasteland into a wildlife oasis.

Reflexiones Marginales

Reflexiones Marginales

Director: Alberto Constante / Facultad de Filosofía y Letras
Vía Reflexiones Marginales

Revista digital recomendada por Mariana Chávez Berrón, colaboradora de México para Replicación de Arttextum

 

Esta revista nace de una percepción: que la filosofía necesita dar respuesta a un conjunto de problemas que se dan alrededor de saberes de frontera y de saberes de y desde los márgenes, es decir, de saberes que quedan atravesados por dos o más conocimientos y que no se detienen en una especificidad sino que se entrecruzan, se subsumen, se yuxtaponen. Pero al mismo tiempo, de lo que se trata es de un procedimiento crítico que indaga sobre la constitución de las fronteras institucionales, sociales, económicas, políticas y universitarias que establecen la identidad y la diferencia de las distintas áreas del saber. La frontera no habla de ir más allá de esos límites, de esos cercos, de esa raya que es señalada por lo decible y lo visible de una época sino que trata de poner de manifiesto la presencia de un afuera que se sostiene con y por un adentro, es la articulación sostenida de relaciones de saber y poder como posibilidad de subjetivación y de libertad. La frontera en su enunciación no rompe lo divisorio, sino que es el lazo viable que se traza entre la afirmación misma de los límites.

NATURALEZA

Partiendo del hecho de que estas fronteras no son naturales, ni universales, sino que son construidas, y en consecuencia son el efecto de ciertas políticas del saber, se ha hecho necesario preguntarnos cómo, cuándo y dónde han tenido lugar los procesos de especialización y de división del trabajo científico, académico o de índole disciplinaria con los cuales se produce el conocimiento. Esta compleja tarea exige estar a la escucha de la diferencia; porque decir la verdad es una tarea plural, atravesada por el desacuerdo y el conflicto. En esta medida, los diversos saberes que conforman a las Humanidades se han enfrentado recientemente con un nuevo reto: la emergencia de la interdisciplinariedad, la cual surge no sólo como un objeto de la reflexión, inédito en nuestra historia hasta hace poco, sino como una instancia, por definición inapropiable, a partir de la cual es posible interrogarse de manera colectiva sobre la racionalización del trabajo que hacemos en las Humanidades.

Unseen Cuba: First aerial photographs reveal island’s spectacular beauty

Author: David Sim
Via International Business Times | May 18, 2015

 

Here’s Cuba as you’ve never seen it before. Lithuanian aerial photographer and publisher Marius Jovaiša is the first artist to receive government permission to fly over the country and photograph it from above.

“Nobody had been able to take aerial pictures of the country because of the secretive political regime and technical difficulties,” he told IBTimes UK. “I thought it would be awesome to try to become the first man on the planet who could convince the Cuban government to give permission for such an endeavour.”

“That was the beginning of a long story,” he continued. “I spent two years in the paperwork and bureaucracy stage. There were so many crazy requirements, unpleasant surprises, changes of circumstances, rules etc that I could write a separate book about it. I guess the Cuban military live by the rules written in the 1960s. Even though now you can go to Google Earth and see every square metre of Cuba, the military still tightly controls the airspace and its secrets.”

Jovaiša says on most aerial photography projects he would simply rent a helicopter, but the rental service in Havana had only a huge Russian-made MI-8 helicopter that wasn’t viable. He bought a custom-built ultralight trike and had it shipped over from Australia.

He says the Unseen Cuba project took five years and a million dollars to come to fruition. But the results are spectacular. Turquoise seas, white sands, ancient villages, dramatic mountains and cities frozen in time.

In this gallery, we publish a selection of his beautiful photographs. See the Unseen Cuba website to learn more about the project and buy a copy of the book, featuring 400 aerial photos of the Caribbean island. There is also an app for Android and Apple phones and tablets, with additional interactive content.

SEFT-1 Abandoned Railways Exploration Probe: Modern Ruins 1:220

Iván Puig, artista Arttextum

Author: The Arts Catalyst
Via SEFT-1 Abandoned Railways Exploration Probe: Modern Ruins 1:220 | June 21, 2014

 

Artists Ivan Puig and Andrés Padilla Domene (Los Ferronautas) built their striking silver road-rail SEFT-1 vehicle to explore the abandoned passenger railways of Mexico and Ecuador, capturing their journeys in videos, photographs and collected objects.

In their first London exhibition, SEFT-1 Abandoned Railways Exploration Probe: Modern Ruins 1: 200, commissioned by The Arts Catalyst and presented in partnership with Furtherfield Gallery, in the heart of Finsbury Park, the artists explore how the ideology of progress is imprinted onto historic landscapes and reflect on the two poles of the social experience of technology – use and obsolescence.

Between 2010 and 2011, the artists travelled across Mexico and Ecuador in the SEFT-1 (Sonda de Exploración Ferroviaria Tripulada or Manned Railway Exploration Probe). In a transdisciplinary art project, they set out to explore disused railways as a starting point for reflection and research, recording the landscapes and infrastructure around and between cities. Interviewing people they met, often from communities isolated by Mexico’s passenger railway closures, they shared their findings online, seft1.com, where audiences could track the probe’s trajectory, view maps and images and listen to interviews.

The artists’ journeys led them to the notion of modern ruins: places and systems left behind quite recently, not because they weren’t functional, but for a range of political and economical reasons. In the second half of the 19th century, the Mexican government partnered with British companies to built the railway line that would connect Mexico City with the Atlantic Ocean – and beyond to Europe. This iconic railway infrastructure now lies in ruins, much of it abandoned due to the privatization of the railway system in 1995, when many passenger trains were withdrawn, lines cut off and communities isolated.

For this new exhibition, the artists are inviting British expert model railway constructors to collaborate by creating scale reproductions of specific Mexican railway ruins exactly as they are now. One gallery becomes a space for the process of model ruin construction. The room’s walls will show the pictures, documents, plans and other materials used as reference for the meticulously elaborated ruin construction. With this action a dystopian time tunnel is created.

The exhibition was held at the Furtherfield Gallery, Finsbury Park, London N4 2NQ, UK, 21 June to 27 July 2014.
