Earthen Pigments Book Description:

Discover how to collect, process, and use pigments from the earth. Starting with the equipment and tools needed for gathering soils, the author takes the reader from the field to the studio where the processes of cleaning, sifting, and mulling result in beautiful colored pigments. Through recipes and illustrations, learn how to turn these pigments into a variety of artist mediums from water-based paints, to pastels and oil/wax crayons, casein solutions, printmaking inks, and even spun into paper threads for weaving, stitching, and tying. Several pigment samples are shown throughout and there's a gallery of the artist's and other artist's works using hand-gathered pigments to inspire your own creative ideas. This guidebook is a wonderful resource for all artists, craftspeople, journalers, and hobbyists, and those researching the historical tradition of artist mediums

What s Next Book Description:

By paying tribute to matter, materiality, and materialization, the examples of contemporary art assembled in What’s Next? Eco Materialism and Contemporary Art challenge the social, cultural, and ethical norms that prevailed in the twentieth century. This significant frontier of contemporary culture is identified as ‘Eco Materialism’ because it affirms the emergent philosophy of Neo Materialism and attends to the pragmatic urgency of environmentalism. In this highly original book, Linda Weintraub surveys the work of forty international artists who present materiality as a strategy to convert society’s environmental neglect into responsible stewardship. These bold art initiatives, enriched by their associations with philosophy, ecology, and cultural critique, bear the hallmark of a significant new art movement. This accessible text, augmented with visuals, charts, and questionnaires, invites students and a wider readership to engage in this timely arena of contemporary art.

Bio Inspired Materials Book Description:

Nature has provided opportunities for scientists to observe patterns in biomaterials which can be imitated when designing construction materials. Materials designed with natural elements can be robust and environment friendly at the same time. Advances in our understanding of biology and materials science coupled with the extensive observation of nature have stimulated the search for better accommodation/compression of materials and the higher organization/reduction of mechanical stress in man-made structures. Bio-Inspired Materials is a collection of topics that explore frontiers in 3 sections of bio-inspired design: (i) bionics design, (ii) bio-inspired construction, and (iii) bio-materials. Chapters in each section address the most recent advances in our knowledge about the desired and expected relationship between humans and nature and its use in bio-inspired buildings. Readers will also be introduced to new concepts relevant to bionics, biomimicry, and biomimetics. Section (i) presents research concepts based on information gained from the direct observation of nature and its applications for human living. Section (ii) is devoted to ‘artificial construction’ of the Earth. This section addresses issues on geopolymers, materials that resemble the structure of soils and natural rocks; procedures that reduce damage caused by earthquakes in natural construction, the development of products from vegetable resins and construction principles using bamboo. The last section takes a look into the future towards the improvement of human living conditions. Bio-Inspired Materials offers readers - having a background in architecture, civil engineering and systems biology - a new perspective about sustainable building which is a key part of addressing the environmental concerns of current times.

A World History of Art Book Description:

A World History of Art is widely regarded as the most up-to-date and wide-ranging history ever published in a single volume. This new edition has been enlarged and redesigned giving it a more contemporary, 'open' look. The coverage of art has been expanded right into the twenty-first century, with the addition of 34 new images of contemporary art. Three new urban development boxes have been added on the ancient Greek, medieval and contemporary city. The coverage of African art has been rewritten and new images added to reflect current thinking. Elegantly and fluently written, the authors present art history as an essential part of the development of humankind, beginning their account with a 30,000-year old statuette and ending with art that is concerned with contemporary society's dependence on the spectacle. The volume covers painting, mosaic, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, architecture and photography.
