JURNALUL DE LA BRAD 1



JURNALUL DE LA BRAD 1
SEMINARII. SEMNE. SEMINȚE.  
25 - 30 aprilie 2016 

 

MOTTO: În România situaţia e de aşa natură, încât puţinii oameni rămaşi ar putea fi uşor exterminaţi. Nu le rămâne decât să se caute unul pe altul, să se strângă laolaltă, să se organizeze. Mai ales să nu se teamă că, o dată ieşiţi de sub monstruoasa tutelă a statului, vor muri de foame, vor rămâne fără mijloace de subzistenţă. Acest nou stat, hibrid ca orice creaţie a unor minţi bolnave, are un punct nevralgic: vrând-nevrând, va tolera proprietatea privată şi libera iniţiativă. (Culianu - Filme de groază, articol din Păcatul împotriva spiritului) 

Oameni, despre oameni. Fiecare, împreună. Regăsirea presupune aparenta pierdere a unui ceva. Fie acel ceva atât de la îndemână încât și-a pierdut semnificația, fie acela intuit, dorit, citit, dar netrăit. 

Poveștile autentice sunt în noi și în oamenii de lângă noi. Ele încep de obicei cu a fost odată ca niciodată. Povestea lui a fi și a face împreună începe cu suntem aici, acum. Ce facem să putem? Împreună și separat. Împreună pot fi deschise porțile uitării și așteptării. Odata intrat, fiecare se îndreaptă după cum îl poartă picioarele, pas după pas, încotro îi spune inima. Dar e liber oricând să-și bată prietenul pe umăr spre o întrebare sau a îmbărbătare. 

Orașele pulsează în sunete discordante. Aritmia ce trădează graba și nepotrivirile a devenit firească în mediu urban. În sate cucul nu se grăbește să cânte. Cântă exact la timpul potrivit în armonie cu ritmurile din natură. Dar cine îl mai aude cu adevărat? Satul tânjește după sunetele străinătății, orașul după liniștea stranie a naturii. Un paradox ce poate fi conciliat de îndată ce-și depășește limitele. Căci noi suntem deopotrivă și sat și oraș, înlăuntru nostru. Și ce-i înlăuntru e și-într-afară. 

Meșteșugul este reînviat artificial fără meșterii adevărați. Tutoriale avem peste tot și din ce în ce mai multe. Într-un dezechilibru total, obiecte autentice din ce în ce mai puține. Odinioară, ucenicii își plăteau meșterii. În prezent, rolurile s-au inversat. Drumul firesc al predării meșteșugului, de la maestru la discipol, îndelung bătătorit odinioară, s-a curmat brusc. 

Fotografia redă o imagine. Cum, când și de ce o faci? Pentru tine sau pentru selfie? Cu trăire sau pentru înregistrarea mecanică a unor like-uri? Tu ești asta, ai fost colo, ai văzut ceea. Dar eu, eu unde sunt? 

Dansul absolutizează trăirile. Purifică prin catharsis și fortifică. Prin mișcare, rol și interpretare a sunetelor create de artizanii armoniei, te pune față în față cu tine, face posibil dialogului interior. Ori de acolo, din interior, devine palpabil și exteriorul. 

Atitudinea este acel șarm, acel je ne sais quoi ce-ți dă aripi sau te face să pleci capul. Puterea de a spune da și curajul de a spune nu la momentul potrivit. În fața cui? A propriilor decizii. 

Toate se leagă, cu toate ne intersectăm. Pe toate le exprimăm de la banalul și profundul gesturilor cotidiene până pe culmile îndepărtate ale silogismelor. Din pruncie până la bătrânețe. În apatie sau în ghidușie, cu inima sinceră sau cu strângere înghețată de mână. Dar care-i secretul? Cum ajungem să spunem cu toată ființa: Non, rien de rien, non, je ne regrette rien. 

Seminarii de împrietenire cu oamenii și cu povestea lor: despre meșteșuguri, muzică, fotografie, teatru și dans, literatură și memorii, drumeții pe poteci din pădure, tradiții locale. 

Pentru revitalizarea meșteșugurilor locale și a societății sustenabile. Fapte. 

Mulțumim Colegiului Național ”Avram Iancu” și Muzeului de Istorie Locală și Etnografie Brad

LATEST NEWS ABOUT LUMINISH CONTEST

Luminish Lamp Design Contest is opened to Romanian art students too. 


Please find below all the information about the contest. For any question, suggestion or comments, contact us at contest@luminish.com or atelieruldecarte@fiiverde.ro.

 Free your mind, let the hands do all the work! Good luck for a good cause! 

“Small Recycled Paper Manufactory in Bucharest”, LUMINISH, a project of the Association of the Craftsmen Order, is supported by a grant from Norway through the Norwegian Financial Mechanism 2009-2014, in the frame of Green Industry Innovation Program Romania.


Luminish Lamp Design Contest. True story. 


Motto: “Just remember, the night has come, turn on the light, the light inside and start reading yourself with the lamp alight!”


BRIEF

Lightening forms made from manual paper, for the interior, used during the night-time. They will be in their ideal use while kept alight during one’s reading. 

Alternative solutions, other than bending, cutting and pasting are encouraged and favoured.

The thought you have to keep in mind, when you start rendering this design in your head is: 
Just remember, the night has come, turn on the light, the light inside and start reading yourself with the lamp alight!”. 

Innovation is key in this context, the innovation applied to manual moulding paper, in order to make them a sustainable product. This innovative design has to be provided with ingenious technical solutions, in order to be reproduced in a limited series. This is NOT a contest for generating ideas, yet it is proposing a resourceful and clever solution for the full extent of designing and producing lamps made out of paper.

We will asses your work pursuing the following criteria:

  • InnovationAdapting the manual paper properties to the construction of the object. 
  • Technical solutions – The efficient use of the materials. Solutions for natural fireproofing of paper. Proposing a proper bulb and socket according to the needs of the paper heating conditions and light colour variation. (Neutral light is preferred). 
  • The use of other materials (other than paper) have to be minimal and they have to be in accordance with the paper. 
  • Aesthetics – An appropriate thinking of the proportions according to nature’s laws. 
  • Proper Framing – The adaptation for form, function and proportion to the environment. 
  • Concept – Has to be according to the innovation and aesthetics points and inspired by a natural source that manifests a biological rhythm (day / night, ascent / descent, static / movement).
