real magick in theory and practise

with 2 comments

Believed to be the most geometrically complex and aesthetically beautiful structure in mathematics, the 4_21 polytope is the algebraic form at the centre of a universal theory of everything. Originally described in the late 19th century, 4_21 models all interactions and transformations between known and postulated sub-atomic particles. It is the 21st century equivalent of the proto-scientific art of alchemy – where the transmutation of elements was the most elusive mystery of the universe. The theory is an attempt to reconcile one of the fundamental unsolved problems in physics: unify quantum physics and gravitation in hopes of ultimately explaining the fabric of the universe.

the style registry

leave a comment »

How did Fendi campaigns look like spring 1993? How Balenciaga was Balenciaga pre Nicolas Ghesquiere? More than a style touchstone and history lesson, this is a look back into graphic trends and social trends, (boobs / no boobs?), old logos, and how luxury was presented way back then. That is the magic of The Style Registry.

Glasfurd and Walker shows us how simple type and a keen sense of aesthetics creates an alluring sandwich shop identity, simply called Meat & Bread.
