Double Space - Precision and Poetry in Motion E dward Barber & Jay Osgerby

"‘Double Space - Precision and Poetry in Motion’ is the latest exhibition by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, for the 2014 London Design Festival. Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby are fascinated by aeronautical, automotive and maritime engineering, and the interplay between movement, performance and scale. Double Space at the Victoria and Albert Museum encapsulates these passions, with the largest structure that they have ever created. Doubles Space is designed to challenge and delight the visitor, creating a completely new way to experience the classic architecture and beautiful cartoons in the Raphael Gallery. Two enormous reflective silver elements are suspended in the ceiling space, and rotate in a series of choreographed movements. The project has been made possible with the enormous skill of a team of experts, and was commissioned by BMW and London Design Festival.”

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
