Creating Enduring Art

BY RYAN ROTH
@ VOL 109 ON DEC 04, 2013

Ryan Roth, an artist representative, talks about how undervalued art is in many of today's cities. Buildings are often built in standard ways with art as only an afterthought. They are torn down again within a few years whereas buildings that are built in artistic ways are left standing for hundreds of years.

Retrofront – Dietro la Politica, una Pagina da Scrivere

BY DEWREC (/DJU:REK/)
@ VOL 10 ON OCT 31, 2014

Retrofront is an up-cycling paper project that turns the huge electoral and advertising posters overproduction into block-notes. Based in Turin, retrofront was created by a interdisciplinary team, coming from Dewrec. Handmade at first, collecting papers from local partys' headquarters, today retrofront drives a net of salvage in Piedmont and mechanizes the production in order to spread the salvage of paper and sale as much as possible. Capitalism wastes sources and destroys the environment, but we are convinced that we can fill its wholes with our intelligence and creativity, saving time and energy, giving back space and jobs. In the next few months, retrofront will diversify, realizing block-notes of different dimensions and different looks. The whole supply and production chain follows social and environmental sustainability criteria, indeed.
