Nicolas Moulin

Nicolas MoulinWork from Steppterminal.“Steppterminal was conceived as an ensemble of hybrids between architectural fragment and autonomous sculpture. The series presents a set of ghost structures, without status or future, evoking a perpetual present—that of ruins, or unfinished construction, isolated in its own sovereign failure. Nicolas Moulin’s new piece will be composed of a total of 6 elements, the first two of which appear here. The piece draws from technical principles used in the modular constructions of brutalist architecture from the 1960s and draws particular inspiration from parts of existing buildings, reduced to 1:6 scale, here the IBM Center in La Gaude, designed by Marcel Breuer (Steppterminal 1) and Boston City Hall by Kallmann McKinnell & Knowles (Steppterminal 2).Exalting the radical and austere expression of raw concrete… Read More

Bliki: DiversityMediocrityIllusion

I’ve often been involved in discussions about deliberately increasing the diversity of a group of people. The most common case in software is increasing the proportion of women. Two examples are in hiring and conference speaker rosters where we discuss trying to get the proportion of women to some level that’s higher than usual. A common argument against pushing for greater diversity is that it will lower standards, raising the spectre of a diverse but mediocre group. To understand why this is an illusionary concern, I like to consider a little thought experiment. Imagine a giant bucket that contains a hundred thousand marbles. You know that 10% of these marbles have a special sparkle that you can see when you carefully examine them. You also know that 80… Read More

A Beautiful Collection Of Fan Made Movie Posters

Movie posters are great, and most people love them. Most of us have hung a movie poster on our wall at some point in our lives, right? Movie posters were a lot more important to the marketing of a film many years ago. There are many posters that are synonymous with the movies they are advertising, but nowadays it’s not so much the case. Printed in different sizes, shapes, designs, and released at different points of a movie’s timeline, a poster can capture the atmosphere and image of a film when done well. Sometimes they will be dark and insightful, trying to scare an audience. Others are bright and colorful, while some are informative. Sometimes they will only provide a few details to tease the reader into … Read More

Be (In) Here Now

installation shot of Harlan’s Cave (2012). courtesy of JTT, New York. Charles Harlan’s Cave is, according to gallerist Jasmin Tsou, who was quietly painting the walls when I visited the piece, concerned with ‘the progression of certain types of architecture.’ By situating this installation in juxtaposition with an oblique text that describes various civilizations and various archeological artefacts or geographical features — ranging from Puente Viesgo, Spain, in 38,000 b.c., to 1997 A.D. in Smyrna, Georgia — Harlan has done precisely that: his own work concludes the timeline, as the most recent stage within the broad context of ‘caves’ in human history. If the concept is initially inscrutable in its range, it is simultaneously fairly simple, revealing a deceptively laconic kind of focus and … Read More
