The White Album officially titled The Beatles was the bands ninth studio album, with a cover designed by pioneering pop artist Richard Hamilton.

Famously stark, the totally white design has provided a blank canvas for the stains, doodles, mould and rips that have accumulated on the albums since its release in 1968, making every copy now unique and inspiring Mr Changs collection

Imagine Peace – New Ayzit Bostan T-Shirt

Want.

http://www.welt.de/print/wams/lifestyle/article130596399/Vermintes-Terrain.html

Can fashion what to say to the war in the Middle East?

Sometimes invite things overnight with meaning. The Munich fashion designer and design professor Ayzit Bostan went recently with a group of students on a field trip to Marrakech. There, everyone should design an inspired by the travel product or work of art. Bostan left a stamp in Arabic script customize with Yoko Ono credo “Imagine Peace”.

Back in Germany, Bostan printed the formally modified type-hippie slogan on a white and a black T-shirt. It quickly became clear that they would not remain single pieces. The demand continued unabated, Bostan is to have them printed for her collection in the series: “Imagine Peace fits actually always, in matters large and small, but it seems like it’s now just a bit more fit,” says the designer.

Yoko Ono supports School Of Doodle

A peer-to-peer, self-directed learning lab dedicated to activating girls imaginations through entertainment, education and community.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/schoolofdoodle/school-of-doodle

The arts are being cut from schools and yet all the research shows (look below!) that when teens creativity and imaginations are fortified, they excel and stay in school longer as well as develop the necessary skills for future success. And girls, well, read the recent articles on the Confidence Gap in women. If we are going to close that, we need to start with teen girls. NOW.

After extensive research and interviews with teens, teachers and education reform experts, we believe that a girls imagination is a right and not a privilege. And, if we dont fight to protect it, the next generation (of women and men) will suffer.

So we pooled our savings and started to build School of Doodle. But we need YOU to finish it and launch the website. Help us empower the next generation of LOUD WOMEN to excel in all the ways we know possible.

And to sweeten the deal, we asked our favorite loud women to make an original doodle that you can own in one form or another. Those women include:

Alice Waters, Arianna Huffington, Courtney Love, Garance Doré, Inez van Lamsweerde, Jenny Holzer, Jules Spector, Julie Mehretu, Karen Kilimnik, Kim Gordon, Kim Hastreiter, Laurie Simmons, Lili Taylor, Maria Kochetkova, Marina Abramović, Natasha Lyonne, Olivia Bee, Pussy Riot, Rodarte, Samira Wiley, Sarah Silverman, Sia, Sophia Amoruso, Susan Orlean, Taryn Simon, Vanessa Beecroft, Yayoi Kusama, Yoko Ono

Still on the fence? Then read below and just try to resist us. From non-cognitive skills to Connected Learning to a lot of smart people talking about the importance of imagination (Einstein and President Obama!), its all there. And we think you will agree that science alone didnt put the man on the moon. The first step was the ability to imagine it. So join the fight for girls imaginations!

An Alternative Atlas of Contemporary Cartographies
Hans Ulrich Obrist, Tom McCarthy

Maps have always been at the heart of human knowledge. Whether they chart a newly discovered land or lay out a complicated process, maps serve to improve our understanding of what surrounds us. Maps make the complex simple, and reveal the complexity behind the apparently simple. Mapping It Out invites artists, architects, writers, and designers, geographers, mathematicians, computer pioneers, scientists, and others from a host of fields to create a personal map of their own, in whatever form and showing whatever terrain they choose, whether real-world or imaginary.

Over 130 contributors ideas are represented, including Yoko Ono, Louise Bourgeois, Damien Hirst, David Adjaye, Ed Ruscha, Alexander Kluge, and many more. Some contributors have translated scientific data into simplified visual language, while others have condensed vast social, political, or natural forms into concise diagrams. There are reworked existing maps, alternate views of reality, charted imaginary flights of fancy, and the occasional rejection of a traditional map altogether.
