Reinventing Perceived Value, Space, and Time Through Modern Art

BY MICHAEL FOSTER
@ VOL 3 ON MAY 12, 2016

From prehistoric cave paintings to Jackson Pollack, art emotionally defines a society. Sadly, we tend to devalue art because it does not directly fulfill basic needs like food, clothing, and shelter. Artist and designer Michael Foster discusses how viewing modern art will confront someone with socially acquired patterns of feelings, thoughts, and actions—in a fairly safe environment. And he will demonstrate the secrets and motivations behind his own work.

Jangling Space

BY BRIAN MORGAN
@ VOL 31 ON APR 20, 2017

Jangling Space – a space where community meet, talk, imagine, share and DO. The DOING is important – we make tangible products that have meaning. We do it ‘out in the open’ so that people’s curiosity is aroused. These products – made from glass and ceramics – link back to an older Glasgow. We can still see remnants of that time with us today, in stained glass and wally tiles. We seek to find that beauty again. Our products, each and every one, contain a physical aspect of Glasgow. Each product has a story – and so do its makers. We attempt to help people feel like they belong – Jangling Space is a cooperative – and therefore it follows values and principles that cherish learning, cooperation, participation, democracy.
