Buildering:Misbehaving the City

wai

Feb 28 - Aug 18, 2014
Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center
44 East 6th Street
Cincinnati, OH 45202

Buildering, a fusion of "building" and "bouldering," is a word used to describe an unorthodox use of architecture. For their 75th anniversary, the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center plans to take this concept to new artistic heights with the help of artists from all over the globe, including France. The works of Didier Faustino (France/Portugal), Etienne Boulanger(France), and Ivan Argote (France/Columbia) is in this modern scheme to turn Cincinnati and CAC's modern building into a contemporary urban playground.

Didier Faustino (b. 1968) currently lives and works between Paris and Lisbon. He is known for his capacity to summon "art from architecture and architecture from art," using architectural spaces as launching points for a recentralization of the human body and social context.

Etienne Boulanger (1976-2008), was primarily occupied with creating unique interventions in urban environments. A nomadic artist, Boulanger would wander through cities, and focused his work on the re-appropriation of transitory zones.

Ivan Argote (b. 1983) lives and works in Paris, using a variety of different media including paintings, video installations, performances, computerized works, and sculptures. He is also very well known for his urban interventions, and often seeks to criticize human passivity in his projects

Wait.You can trademark the layout of a store?

wai

Apple won a legal victory yesterday when the European Court of Justice ruled it could trademark the layout of its stores, just as it has in the US.

But how does that work? Quartz headquarters basically consists of long white tables covered in Apple products-are we infringing? It turns out we are not, mostly because the legal standard in question-whether a consumer could reasonably mistake our office for an Apple store-isn’t going to be met. But more importantly, Apple’s US trademark, officially granted last year, is the result of a nearly three-year process of refinement to ensure that it wouldn’t protect functional items (i.e., you can’t trademark tables in your store) and that, altogether, it comprises a unique identity. Here’s exactly how the trademarked layout pictured above is described, in rather excruciating detail:
