JT Burke, Artist, Photographer- “Hi Tony, I'm working on a project that I'd like to share with you.

On January 14th I'll present my first ever, three-dimensional installation at the LA Art Show. My particular style of jewelry-inspired 2-D compositions will clad all the sides of a 16' tall, sheet metal and canvas structure that I've designed. The project is titled The Paradise Circus, Los Angeles 2015.

The Circus, as I proposed it last summer, is a physical and conceptual mash-up of confession booth, cathedral steeple and big top tent. 

The exterior of the structure will be covered with circus posters announcing religious-themed acts, presenting canonical mythology as entertainment spectacle. It's a lighthearted lampoon of traditional orthodoxies and a comparison of doctrinal storytelling with carnival merriment.

The interior of The Circus will be darker, featuring symbols, characters and runes of unknown origin in a foreboding environment. A large, imposing face greets you at the entrance (could that be St. Peter, Ridwan, Uriel or Charon?) and a traditional church kneeler invites you to make obeisance and push open the slider to reveal...a small glimpse of Paradise.

It is said that the role of the artist is to reveal unseen truths. I am creating this work, and all the work in this ongoing series, because I often wonder about what lies beyond this mortal life. I question the veracity of those who claim to know, and challenge the authority of monolithic institutions that spin stories and perpetuate myths for purposes of social control and political gain.

Follow along with me and my team for the next 62 days on the blog or on Facebook as we produce this project right up to opening night. And please join us at the Los Angeles Convention Center January 14-18 to see and experience the completed Circus.

- Soren Petersen, Ph.D, President at ingomar and ingomar consulting- “What makes design consultancies better suited than others to create start-ups? For starters, they have a process for understanding what people want. From day one things will just look and feel better and smarter with design thinking on board.  The world is experiencing a boom in interest around startups as well as in design and the combination of the two is seen as the perfect cocktail for creating new and innovative offerings. Despite this perfect marriage, startups still seem to be baffled about how and when to engage design. This begets the question ‘Why don't design consultancies create startups?’”

Secondly, I will have booth at the upcoming Craftsman Weekend Exhibition Oct. 18th and 19th at the Pasadena Convention Center.

- Ulrike Kerber, Principal and Creative Director at Viva Design Inc.- “Greetings! The last few weeks I designed and animated a lot of logos ranging from health, production companies to E! Entertainment show logos. The interesting thing about designing company logos is that I learn a lot about the organizations. You have to ...in order to communicate a thought or feeling and to generate a desired emotional response. 

 E! Host Australia is designed for a talent search and needed to reflect E!'s branding. Flowmotion is a media and distribution company that produces infomercials and more. Rilascio is a Spinal Network Analysis Center, a new and gentle way of Chiropractic.  More logos are on my project pages.

Visual identity has a big impact, it communicates non-verbally subtle characteristics of your company. If you want to find out more about your brand and are considering a design or re-design, let me know and I will send you my questionnaire.

- Dennis Hill, The Architect’s Photographer- (Editor’s note: The following entry is directly from the Los Angeles Times article by Lisa Boone, September, 9, 2014):

2014 Craftsman Weekend returns to Pasadena,
The 23rd annual Craftsman Weekend celebration organized by the preservation group Pasadena Heritage has some new offerings this year, including a tile workshop with ceramist Sarah Moore of Sassafrass Pottery and a walking tour of the Monte Vista/Las Lunas neighborhood, originally part of the Rancho San Pasqual neighborhood south of the Pasadena Heights historic district.

The three-day event opens Oct. 17 and will include lectures, workshops and bus and walking tours. The highlight, as always, is the Craftsman House Tour, a self-driven tour of five privately owned homes designed between 1908 and 1914, including the 1911 Miss Ida Hawes House designed by contractor/builder Samuel Hawes. That tour is scheduled for Oct. 19.

An all-day excursion tour of the historic Mission Inn in Riverside, listed on the Historic Hotels of America program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, is scheduled for Oct. 17.

Docents also will lead walking tours through Pasadena neighborhoods, including Arroyo Seco and South Grand as well as a historic tour of the Rose Bowl.

The two-day Craftsman Exposition at the Pasadena Convention Center will satisfy Arts & Crafts enthusiasts as more than 60 antique dealers' and artists' display furniture, textiles, pottery, tiles, metal work, wallpapers, stencils and books.

For ticket prices and an event schedule (some events have sold out), visit Pasadena Heritage online or 651 S. St. John Ave. Parking will be available at the Convention Center, 300 E. Green St. Information: (626) 441-6333.”

Loren Tripp
, Artist/Entrepreneur- “Hi Tony! Loren here from class of 2012!  I hope you are well.  I’m happy to say I still use some of the perspective I got from your class in my lurch toward figuring out what I’m doing with my life!  So far it has been a circuitous stagger, but I’m making forward progress… am doing some TV set dressing as well as getting terrifyingly close to opening my CoStudio cooperative art studio!  ‘Be careful what you wish for’ is appropriate here... 

I’m starting a group called Pasadena Women In Tech and we’re having a Launch Party! Here is the information, and I hope you’ll pass it along:  http://www.pasadenawomenintech.com/
I’m also producing a Panel Discussion on Technology and Public Benefit for the Innovate Pasadena Connect Week.  Here is the blurb, with a web site to follow next week”: 

Technology and Public Benefit Panel Discussion:  Innovating for Good

Innovation can change the world. Social entrepreneurs are using their creativity and expertise to make a difference for humanity, for the environment and for the future.  From designing water filtration systems that save lives to wearable technology that tracks health; from innovations in education to online crowd funding sites; from awareness-raising ice bucket challenges to data and mapping systems that track populations and disease; from developing efficient and scalable systems that solve challenges to companies committing to a mission of corporate responsibility: technology, design and the entrepreneurial spirit can make the world better. Our panel will discuss innovation for public benefit, business and funding models that make organizations sustainable, and how out of the box thinking makes a difference.

Saturday, October 25, 2014. Program 10:00 to 11:30  Location TBD

I wonder if you have anyone you can recommend from Art Center who is an expert in Product Design or Design for Public Benefit who can be on our panel?
I hope you are enjoying the new term and are keeping as busy as you like.  I will try to stop in at the next Schmooze Fest!

Best wishes,”

Loren Tripp
lorentripp@mac.com



Join Pasadena-area women in technology, education, science, design and innovation for the Launch Party of Pasadena Women in Tech.  We will discuss our Mission, network and enjoy a no-host bar and appetizers.  Open to women and men who support innovative women, our launch party will be held at the historic Blinn House, home of the Women's City Club of Pasadena.

- Peter Treadwell, Product Designer and Entrepreneur- (The description of his remarkable RocketSkates is taken from his web site)

Whether it is the meshed honey comb design, the color, or the shape,  at first glance the RocketSkates look like mini shopping carts strapped to your shoes. The difference is, this shopping cart will take you places at up to 12 mph.

The RocketSkates are the world’s first smart wearable mobility device, say its developers, who are currently crowdsourcing support on Kickstarter. 

Lean the skates forward to accelerate, and backwards to slow down. The device is powered by lithium-ion batteries, and also comes with a microprocessor to synchronize the speed between the two feet. 

The ACTON App, monitors the RocketSkates via a smartphone. It provides diagnostics, battery, and route-tracking information. A software development kit (SDK) also allows app developers to use the RocketStick in their next app. 

The video below starts with a demo of the RocketSkates, and is followed by the co-founder and CTO of ACTON, Peter Treadway, explaining how they work.

- Al Satterwhite, Photographer- The Hunter Thompson book, “The Cozumel Diary,” is now available on iTunes for the iPad - I'm currently only doing the iPad because it's the only one that has a 'locked' layout, meaning the layout looks the way I want it to look without moving around as most or all of the other readers do.

My two other racing books are also available:

“The Racers” is the digital version of the limited edition (100 numbered & signed copies) book that sells for $750.00 (it comes in a custom metal box with a laser-etched cover & (2) signed 8x10" B&W prints; the digital version also has my vocal commentary on every page which is unique.

“Carroll Shelby” is also available as an ebook; the print book being a limited run at $225.00@
