An Unbiased View of Teclado Mecanico Tfue
An eight-metre monolithic sculpture of reddish steel stands before me in the middle of a hilly field. Solid and grounded, the structure’s 22 tons contrast with the upward-reaching movement of its lines. As it soars towards the sky, the whole thing speaks of time and space in epic proportions.
Facebook Twitter Pinterest Italian style: in Milan last year. Photograph: Jacopo M Raule/Getty Images for GucciThe Covid case numbers are on the rise again and this month, which normally looms with a hefty weight of shows, is already a September like no other. New York and London fashion weeks are now mainly “phygital”, a combination of shows with physical and digital elements. Even in physical form, we will see collections through smaller shows and private appointments. And with cases on the rise again in Italy and France, there are question marks over how the big houses will stage their shows. It’s an uneasy pull between the desire of the financial powers that be in brands to return to the “old normal” and a pushback from the creatives and designers, who now want to do things differently. Fewer collections. Less product. Better ideas that meet the needs of a changed world.
But in fashion at large, holding on to the “show must go on” mentality is pervasive. Time will tell whether we see any actual change to how the industry showcases collections, and whether the frenetic pre-pandemic pace will return. Fashion can’t help but to reach for superlatives, excess and spectacle. The key is balancing bombast with a measured sensitivity and awareness.
Carol Beasley testified that her son had a troubled childhood and suffered physical abuse by his stepfather. She also said she learned within the past year that her son had been sexually abused by neighborhood youngsters.

Photograph: Kira Perov/courtesy Bill Viola StudioBill Viola grew up in Flushing, New York, near the site of 1964 World’s Fair, which he would visit, marvelling at its idealistic vision of new technologies. Viola came under the spell of video at the University of Syracuse, exploring its Moog synthesiser and mastering reel-to-reel recording.
Beasley, 53, was convicted of teaming up with a teenager in 2011 to use the promise of jobs on a farm to lure them into robberies. Three men were killed, and a fourth who was wounded testified at Beasley’s trial.

Metrópoles said officials wanted to place a 20-metre antenna on the presidential Planalto palace; a 10-metre antenna on the Alvorada presidential residence; and a six-metre antenna on the vice-presidential Jaburu residence. The antennas – reportedly designed to detect and “neutralize” drones – would be supported by diagonal cables, creating a pyramid-style effect above the stunning low-rise structures.
In 1965 he snapped up one of the first video cameras to reach Manhattan, his new home town, and by 1974 had created his masterpiece, TV Buddha. A video camera is aimed at an impassive stone Buddha seated in a classic pose on a pedestal. The Buddha gazes knowingly at his image, which appears on a round, futuristic-looking TV in front of him. Nothing moves, which leads the viewer to wonder whether the image on the screen is a live feed or recorded.
Although only a 15-minute drive from the city centre, Chillida Leku (place in Basque) is silent and secluded. At the top of the hill is the caserío, a 16th-century Basque farmhouse (known as Zabalaga country house) built from stone and timber. Inside it, a retrospective on the artist entitled Ecos (Echoes) has been curated by another of his sons, Ignacio, after which a rotating programme of exhibitions will follow.
Viola once wrote: “I want to introduce an ‘I’ more extreme than in literature.” He has continued to interpret human experience through portrayals of the body, giving shape to otherworldliness and teclado mecanico tfue filling a void in our precarious times.
Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton)This is an awful story: A DACA recipient in good standing was told by her airline she could work on a route to Mexico. Now she’s in detention and ICE is threatening to revoke her status.
The flower suggests an ancient priapic wand, typically associated with springtime fertility rituals. The camera captures the woman’s carefree movements as she merrily smashes the side windows of cars parked on the street with the flower. Passersby smile, as if indulging an innocent child. They include a policewoman, who salutes the perpetrator. Beyoncé later paid homage to the sequence in her video for Hold Up.
Facebook Twitter Pinterest Homewear: dressing up in lockdown. Photograph: Susie Lau @susiebubbleWhat I lost this year in epic trips, far-flung location-flexing and fashion experiences, I gained in personal growth, not least because I could spend more time with my daughter. I’ve also been able to appraise the industry with fresh eyes. I’ve enjoyed seeing people who bring cause and purpose to their ventures and are mindful of environmental impact, without relying on the traditional shows. Through social media, a DIY mentality has triumphed. The handmade, ultra-feminine tops and dresses of British-based Olivia Rose the Label sell-out by Instagram word of mouth, harking back to the days of the humble dressmaker. Stylist Emma Gold of @TieDyeTogether has, with her affordable tie-dyed vintage tees, raised funds to support the NHS, combining upcycling with social mindfulness. With the ongoing backdrop of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, I’ve loved seeing the amplification of Black-owned businesses – labels like Kai Collective, created by designer Fisayo Longe, who has fostered a powerful community online around her designs.
