Zeit im Bild

After lots of researching I found out that 'Deutsche Demokratische Republik esittäytyy' is the finnish translation of 'Introducing the GDR' by Herbert Arndt. The book was published in Dreden in 1969 by the Publisher 'Zeit im Bild'.—source.

Sol LeWitt

"Conceptual art is not necessarily logical. The ideas need not be complex. Most ideas that are successful are ludicrously simple. Successful ideas generally have the appearance of simplicity because they seem inevitable." Artforum, 1967.

Le Corbusier

Retouched from an image uploaded by BTA.

Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris, who chose to be known as Le Corbusier (October 6, 1887 – August 27, 1965), was a Swiss-French architect, designer, urbanist, writer and also painter, who is famous for being one of the pioneers of what now is called Modern architecture or the International Style. He was born in Switzerland and became a French citizen in his 30s.—Wikipedia.


The science of design features creative people from different fields of design and art. My aim is to find interesting work outside the common geographical areas where design concentrates.

—————Design by Country—————

The artists are tagged by the country they are based in, or where they come from. This is particularly useful to acquire a sense of how design is happening in a place, but also as a tool to enter in contact with designers that live in the same area.


With a larger collection of digital art and photography, this blog collects portfolios from other fields specially when they have had an interesting conceptual approach or have experimented on the aesthetics of a project.
