New Agglomeration Design Proposal, China by Jorge Ayala

In the last century, cities have become the most frequented environment for humankind, concentrating both wealth, poverty, decision making process and acting both as a machine to channel a constantly growing global capitalism but also hosting the last remaining structures of political power to balance it.

Jorge Ayala’s proposal for a new agglomeration in China seek to develop an strategy that embraces the overall site, a 27 square kilometre island in the Pearl River Delta, including its natural energies such as tidal variation, local mangroves reserve and seasonal rainfall.

Lisa's work
reminds me very much
of the prodigious
Sister Corita Kent

By the 1960s, she was using popular culture (such as song lyrics and advertising slogans) as raw material for her meaning-filled bursts of text and color.

Corita’s cries for peace in the era of Vietnam were not always welcome. In 1965 her "Peace on Earth" Christmas exhibit in IBM’s New York show room was seen as too subversive and Corita had to amend it.
However, her work continued to be an outlet for Corita’s activism—in her words:
"I am not brave enough to not pay my income tax and risk going to jail. But I can say rather freely what I want to say with my art."

i love you no matter what
