a 1st novel by hans tyson tackles tragic feigns with a jarring black humor. well we all know the expression necessity is the mother of invention and thanks to the pandemic of multiple lockdowns we've seen this maxim put to work in many ways as we've all had to change everything about the way we need and communicate or arrows soap is an experimental design lab in dusseldorf that makes an art of making communication tangible and while the name may seem odd so is their approach. face must. we have all become familiar with them. to german designers from just off came up with a new version. maybe not the safest option but definitely the funniest. if i am thomas verts from frederick we got
11:32 pm
we are are so all. it's big. but. more than a traditional studio arrow soap is an interdisciplinary creative lapore a trait they realized projects at the intersection of art design and science these projects later evolve into branding designs for international companies such as a day. when they are not busy with commissioned works they use that time to experiment with different materials such as slides to discover the different possibilities each material presented by their flight because this line conducts electricity and offers a certain resistance depending on how much slime you have in your hand at any given time i don't we can use this conductivity to transform this data into light and sound.
11:33 pm
with these experiments there are no expectation. that you will keep playing with the material in different environments until they are satisfied and can control the outcome. they even try different forms of kinetic installations. and from this it all started with my master's thesis in which i investigated the relationship between type graffiti and materiality especially with a mama tiriel. and with that. parents took their course and this is what came out of it. or. usually they start experimenting on a small scale such as in petri dish and. once they can control the variables they can then take the experiment to a commercial level. the

successful do you have won multiple awards for their creative work and most recently from the federal government as well as the culture and creative pioneers of germany. this is how they greeted the new year in 2020 and experiment with sodium water and then indicator. little did they know that the year was going to be as explosive as the experiment itself. the design has met each other in 2007 here at the university of applied sciences indecl doff they still come here regularly but now as teaches in front of the it definitely gives you new ideas about approaches because you exchange ideas with the students who are also a bit younger than you and you get a bit more of the zite guys from the younger adults and that is very enriching. today the panel has prepared a surprise experiment for us it's
11:35 pm
a perfect example of how they use an extra to fix chemistry and technology to design communication strategies for companies. this is an experiment that we already did at the beginning of last year which received pretty good feedback. the experiment has been refined for far not a little bit perfected yes. right our goal is to be able to use different liquids. this is. for example blood or gold and liquids. let's see the results. very nice indeed well back in the late 1950 s. in doesn't doff when west germany 1st chancellor i don't know where had campaign posters made with the slogan no experiments
11:36 pm
a certain young hines took offense at that conservative sentiment and so he took a can of paint and he blackened out the no on every poster that he could find on the prank earned him a night in jail but the attitude stuck with him and made him a pioneer of the avodart arts scene in germany. light is a defining element in heinz marx work each day he works in his light filled studio he places paints alongside each other blends them mixes them together. and looks to see how the light makes the colors glow. since the 1960 s. mark has lived on this former farm from the 16th century surrounded by plenty of greenery and his own sculptures. finds mark turned 90 years old last month. i get up at the same time every day and i don't need an alarm clock i have an inner clock that has set itself then after breakfast i go into my workshop where i studio
11:37 pm
usually for about 3 hours until lunch since the age of $85.00 allowed myself a 20 minute nap after lunch we had nothing then i go back to the workshop. that routine has resulted in a wide ranging body of work. dedicated in the exhibition to the sculptor and painter in honor of his 90th birthday it focuses on his early works. starting in the 1950 s. mark was repeatedly drawn to working in the desert he sought a space outside of institutions borderless and empty he built artificial gardens of metal and light in the sand. and so that he would fit in with his works he had a silver suit made for himself an astronaut in the desert it's a hard project was basically land before that term was invented. by noticing
11:38 pm
that the works i created here responded to the light in the space of the day or like instruments and they did so in a fascinating way. with everything that seemed large to me here seem small there and depending on the light up as it happened small things appear to be normal as you did. thanks mark was one of the founders of the 0 artists group which also included auto. both men wanted to revolutionize art. starting from 0 the goal was art for all fantastical daring and playful it especially appealed to young people. who didn't move if you have the courage just get everything you've learned and start fresh and then you might have a chance to really discover something new. so experimenting was essential for me experimental. max
11:39 pm
experiments with mirrors metal light and engines have gone down in art history. my life was dominated by the present day and of course i also have a strong tendency to look ahead or to the left or the right one of action but looking back is not my thing it's that simple it's the big. ones mark hopes to live to at least 100 years old and he has no intention of retiring from making art. well sunday saw the academy of country music awards streaming live from nashville tennessee. bro i am and luke bryan scoops the coveted entertainer of the year award for the 3rd time in the 44 year old singer wasn't able to attend the ceremony after revealing last week that he had tested positive for the corona virus but it was still over the moon and

here's a listen to his signature sound. a claimed 1st novel lost features a child narrator who struggles with the shadow of an older sibling he has long believed to be dead well it's hard to imagine this has the makings of a star play funny story but it's the cynical child's perspective and a kafka esque twist that take this novel in unexpected directions it's the worst situation you're. possibly imagine you're fleeing a war you're surrounded by enemy soldiers and you've got your baby in your arms what do you do to give your child away to strangers in the last months of world war 2 that was a common occurrence as the red army advanced german women and children fled eastern europe almost 300000 of those children who were separated from their parents most

were reunited. but that's not what happens in lost by hundreds of these ties you know it takes place years after the war is over the family in the book has made a new life in west germany where the economy is booming but they're still haunted by the trauma of losing their 1st born son. the author's own family really did lose a child during the war for tycho lost is an attempted self healing it's written from the point of view of the younger son whose own childhood is lost to a hopeless search for his missing brother i was only just beginning to understand that arnold my dead brother had the leading role in the family and had assigned me a supporting part i also understood that arnold was responsible from the very beginning for my growing up in an atmosphere poisoned with guilt and shame.
11:42 pm
over the years the family's fortunes improve the father makes it from a butcher to a wholesaler but nothing happens the pain of losing their 1st child sounds like a pretty depressing story what makes it readable is tyson's witticism which he doles out with plenty of biting humor. and finally tim curry is best known for his portrayal of the mad scientist transvestite dr frank n. furter in the cult film the rocky horror picture show all the british actor and singer has been i would have the limelight since suffering a stroke in 2012 but for his 75th birthday on monday april 19th will leave you with a glimpse of his heyday and wish him many happy returns and from us. just. sexual.
