🎼 M U S I C A L A R T • The Baby by @basedupon Hand-sculpted, a remarkable piano inspired by the patterns in nature. The piano’s form is based on the repeating spiral patterns omnipresent throughout our universe. From star-studded galaxies to the florets in a sunflower, inspired the fluid curves of The Baby. Exclusive hand-finished metals and seductively tactile resins reflect the artist’s studies of the earth’s surface—and scenes taken from outer space. The sculptural form has evolved over 9 years and what a wonderful creation it is. Collaboration between Goldfinch & @basedupon

#Repost @basedupon ・・・ That’s why I think it relates, that’s why it’s enduring for me – the oneness and fragmentation pieces. At the same time, they’re about making the insignificant, significant.

Our clients are organizations that want to use English-language messages for their fundraising, strategic planning, grant writing, or other communication needs. Helping people to create, shape, and express their ideas can be a challenge when working across cultures. Many times, the focus on telling the perfect story becomes an obstacle to telling an effective story. One approach that enables us to build stronger narratives for clients is to draw upon storytelling from a diverse range of sources, including folk tales from other cultures and folklore from around the world. Drawing stylistic inspiration from other cultures allows us to break away from conventional limitations in our thinking. Stories also enable us to find hidden value, deeper connections, and greater relevance in the materials we develop. #saturdayspark, #inspiredby, #folklore, #favoritebooks, #whenwewerekids, #folktales, #storytelling, #newideas, #basedupon, #oldwisdom, #communicatingthoughts, #whatwedo, #expressingideas, #untanglenarrativethreads #whenyougetstuck, #writersblock, #lossforwords, #noinspiration, #notmakingsense, #wheretostart, #turnthepage, #knowyourmotifs, #embraceyourarchetypes, #broadenperspectives, #mapthestory, #framethetale, #expandhorizons, #followyourmuse, #tellyourstory

KAAT神奈川芸術劇場プロデュース 華氏451度 原作/レイ・ブラッドベリ 上演台本/長塚圭史 演出/白井晃 あの小説をどういう風に舞台に乗せるのだろうと、とても興味があり楽しみにしていました。期待は裏切られなかったです。観ているときのザワザワ感、人間の愚かさ、広い意味での機械に組み込まれていくのであろう現実を受け入れて、折り合いをつけるのか?という今を考えさせられているような、なんとも言えない気持ち…。 とにかくも出演者の皆さん、とても素晴らしくて。 そしてファン目線を差し引いても、美波さんの四役が素晴らしかった! 表情が雄弁で。声の表情も良かった。鹿の役に至っては、神懸かっているような、眼の動き、瞼の動き、身体の動きでした。 舞台装置や衣装も良かった!とてもシンプルではあるけど、本の使い方や書庫だったりが面白いし、裏に引っ込んでいるように見えても演技し続けていたり、その舞台の世界にすんなり入っていけるような…観ていて面白かった! 何度でも観たくなる舞台でした🙌 #華氏451度 #KAAT #kaat神奈川芸術劇場 #舞台 #吉沢悠 #美波 #堀部圭亮 #栗野史浩 #土井ケイト #草村礼子 #吹越満 #白井晃 #長塚圭史 #レイブラッドベリ #basedupon #raybradbury #novel #fahrenheit451 #play #theatre

We believe that unity and interconnectedness is real. But the world that we observe, is a world in which everything is very clearly separate. So space to us is nothing, it’s empty and things have their own defined boundaries and edges — Ian Abell, BU JOURNAL | Cracks and Fissures Digitalising the chiasmic crevices of the four part fragmented crack, pictured.

That came out of that whole commitment into going far, far into landscape in honouring what was there, bringing it back and bringing it into something that can form part of an interior space. It’s the constant longing to be outside and alone in the vastness. Given that we have to live in buildings and we have to live in cities, how best do we connect to that? We can either get out as often as possible or we can bring in little anchors of memory and that may be a simple texture that can anchor us back to that moment — Ian Abell, BU JOURNAL | Cracks and Fissures Link in bio to discover Based Upon’s cracking materials. #cracks #fragmentation #journal #surface #basedupon #art #design #artwork #fissures #imperfections #commitment #honour #landscape #interior #space #memory #texture #journey at Based Upon

The White Tondo is more about the layers of the earth and what might lie at the core of something if we’re prepared to go into it, peeling it back layer by layer. It’s a patience thing. It’s a courageous patience. It’s going deep, you know.

Wallpaper * August 2018. The ‘Handmade ‘ issue has become one of the magazine’s well-known franchises. In this instance they ‘tasked designers and makers, ‘writes Acting Editor Nick Compton,’ with thinking about the rest, repair and elevation of mind and body. It was an idea we tagged ‘Wellness + Wonder’. If that sounds po-faced, it isn’t. There’s plenty of wit, surprise and charm. Swipe to see some highlights of the accompanying exhibition at this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan. Photography by Michael Bodiam; interiors by Maria Sobrino. ‘Relax, reboot and rediscover your boing’ with a ‘Forever Young’ playground and loop-the-loop by Maarten Baas and Henge, a home gym called ‘Infinite’ wallbars by Charles Kalpakuan and Gebruder Thonet and III by Based Upon which provides the cover image. Based Upon is twin brothers Ian and Richard Abell who work from London. ‘Inspired by primitive landscapes, (it’s) designed to rocket you into a meditative state.’ Good function for a cover... Oh, and the back page shows the ultimate chocolate bar and case by Romance Chocolate and Bozarthfornell. Now that’s what many call ‘happiness and wellness ‘. Brand & content director: Tony Chambers. Editor: Sarah Douglas. Art Director: Jessica Rose. Photography director: Holly Hay. Digital director: Anthony Thornton. @wallpapermag @tf_chan @hols_hay @mramilnes @amybettyheff @carlyrgray @isa_kountoure @basedupon #basedupon #wallpapermagazine #wellnessandwonder @bozarthfornell_projects @bozarthfornell
