"I like to photograph naked women. The infinite variety of the human body is fascinating: it is amazing and magic to see how different women are."-- David Lynch
Ten years after the exhibition The Air Is on Fire, which unveiled David Lynch's photographic and painting work, comes the new photographic volume, David Lynch, Nudes, published by the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain in Paris.
Featuring more than one hundred black-and-white and color images, many of them published for the first time, of feminine nudes captured by the iconic artist, these erotically charged photographs are close to abstraction, offering kaleidoscopic visions of the woman and attesting to David Lynch's fascination with the infinite variety of the human body while also reminiscent of his cinematographic work.

Описание: A key painting among Rembrandt’s various works depicting the Passion story is the centerpiece of this absorbing volume that combines the latest scholarly findings and breathtaking reproductions.
Painted between the years 1632 and 1646, the Passion series is one of Rembrandt’s finest accomplishments. This volume investigates a work known as the »Entombment Sketch« — actually a beautiful finished painting, and the jewel of the Hunterian Art Gallery’s collection. Drawing from paint samples, new high-definition imagery, and other technical findings, this volume thoroughly explores the provenance of the painting. The authors also discuss Rembrandt’s own influences in creating the Passion series, including Leonardo, Caravaggio, Raphael, and Rubens, and compare the work with that of Rembrandt’s contemporaries.

Описание: In this must-read book for anyone striving to succeed, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows parents, educators, athletes, students, and business people both seasoned and new that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a focused persistence called grit. Why do some people succeed and others fail? Sharing new insights from her landmark research on grit, MacArthur genius Angela Duckworth explains why talent is hardly a guarantor of success. Rather, other factors can be even more crucial such as identifying our passions and following through on our commitments. Drawing on her own powerful story as the daughter of a scientist who frequently bemoaned her lack of smarts, Duckworth describes her winding path through teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not genius but a special blend of passion and long-term perseverance. As a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, Duckworth created her own character lab and set out to test her theory. Here, she takes readers into the field to visit teachers working in some of the toughest schools, cadets struggling through their first days at West Point, and young finalists in the National Spelling Bee. She also mines fascinating insights from history and shows what can be gleaned from modern experiments in peak performance. Finally, she shares what she s learned from interviewing dozens of high achievers from JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon to the cartoon editor of "The New Yorker" to Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll. Winningly personal, insightful, and even life-changing, "Grit" is a book about what goes through your head when you fall down, and how" that" not talent or luck makes all the difference."
In kindergartens these days, children spend more time with math worksheets and phonics flashcards than building blocks and finger paint. Kindergarten is becoming more like the rest of school. In Lifelong Kindergarten, learning expert Mitchel Resnick argues for the opposite: the rest of school (and even the rest of life) should be more like kindergarten. Most schools focus on teaching children to follow rules and instructions, a remnant of a bygone assembly-line era. To thrive in today's fast-changing world, people of all ages must learn to think and act creatively -- and the best way to do that is through a kindergarten-style approach to making, experimenting, and collaborating, just as children do in traditional kindergartens.
Drawing on experiences from more than thirty years at MIT's Media Lab, Resnick discusses new technologies and strategies for engaging young people in creative learning experiences. He tells stories of how children are programming their own games, stories, and inventions (for example, a diary security system, created by a twelve-year-old girl), and collaborating through remixing, crowdsourcing, and large-scale group projects (such as a Halloween-themed game called Night at Dreary Castle, produced by more than twenty kids scattered around the world). By providing young people with opportunities to work on projects, based on their passions, in collaboration with peers, in a playful spirit, we can help them prepare for a world where creative thinking is more important than ever before.
