This Might Be Frank Gehry’s Craziest Building Yet
Frank Gehry's first foray into Latin American architecture basically looks like a box of crayons exploded on the shore of the Panama Bay. In a good way. The 44,000-square-foot Biomuseo, a Smithsonian-affiliated institution located on the waterfront in Panama City, pays tribute to the region’s ecosystem with an eye-popping mishmash of orange, yellow, blue, and green panels—perfect for a museum that’s all about celebrating biodiversity.

    TRAILER: “Kehinde Wiley: An Economy of Grace”.

    New documentary investigates Wiley’s life and identity as it relates to his artwork and the Western hegemonic world of art in which he must navigate as a black African-American artist.

    The film had its premiere in the US on PBS on September 5th so be sure to check your local listings to see when its on next. Don’t have PBS? US residents can try stream it online here.

A UC Santa Cruz study found that dancers can improve the ability to do complex moves by walking through them slowly and encoding the movement with a cue through ‘marking’.
Researcher Edward Warburton, a former professional ballet dancer, and colleagues (including a UC Irvine collaborator) were interested in exploring the “thinking behind the doing of dance.”
Their findings suggest that marking may alleviate the conflict between the cognitive and physical aspects of dance practice and allow dancers to memorize and repeat steps more fluidly. As Warburton describes:

Marking could be strategically used by teachers and choreographers to enhance memory and integration of multiple aspects of a piece precisely at those times when dancers are working to master the most demanding material.

It’s possible that this area of research can extend to other kinds of activities, like language acquisition. Stay tuned!

A really interesting line of research. We often think of something like dance as mainly being a physical activity, but it requires extreme cognitive control and focus.
