Of all the exhibitions that have been mounted thus far at the Galerie Azzedine Alaïa, an evocative presentation of photographs by Richard Wentworth is the first to turn inward on the maison. The estimable British artist treats one of the most venerated names in fashion with remarkable closeness; yet his access and acceptance as an insider yields a series that reveals details little by little, free of linear structure or imposed emotion. Each glimpse feels spontaneous, yet nonetheless in deference to Alaïa’s rarefied craft and communal culture.
But the full extent of intention is largely communicated through the show’s scenography, which actually exists as an on-site sculpture. Nailed onto plywood boards staggered throughout the versatile atrium – the same one that has been transformed into a runway venue or showroom – the unframed prints could be alternately perceived as fragments of activity, output and architecture surrounded by expanses of space; presumably all the moments left und..

Alors que de plus en plus de personnes se posent des questions autour de l’avenir du cookie, comment activer de la manière la plus efficace possible ses clients sur les écosystèmes comme ceux de Google et Facebook ?
Vihan Sharma, Managing Director France de LiveRamp, leader mondial du marché du CRM et Data onboarding a répondu à nos questions
Viuz- Quel rôle jouez vous dans le people based marketing ? Vihan Sharma : Les grandes marques souhaitent communiquer avec leurs clients sur les grands carrefours d’audience. Mais Il faut comprendre qu’à l’ère omnicanale, Google, Facebook et d’autres acteurs majeurs ne considèrent pas un cookie comme une personne. Or, pour faire un véritable matching multi device et people based il faut pouvoir associer les identifiants au niveau individu de ses clients avec les identifiants tiers de ces plateformes.
A ce jour nous sommes les seuls au niveau Français à pouvoir proposer un “matching” des ids Liveramp d’une manière sécurisé..
Film director and artist Miranda July is going to great – if unconventional – lengths to celebrate one of London’s great unsung heroes: the local charity shop. ‘Nowhere else I know in the world has such an eclectic and diverse array of charity shops,’ she says. ‘There’s so much hope in that.’
Housed in the unlikely location of London’s temple of transactions – Selfridges – the off-beat artist’s interfaith store assembles a random mix of wares from four local London charities: the Norwood Jewish Charity Shop; London Buddhist Centre Charity Shop; Spitalfields Crypt Trust; and Islamic Relief. Bobbly jumpers sit side by side with costume jewellery, furry photo frames hang next to headscarves.
And she’s calling it ‘art’. ‘The wonderful thing is, that this installation is not art on the surface,’ she explains. ‘So many people coming in won't be thinking of it that way. That will be one of the most fun things about it.’
This is shopping; it's light and fun. But there’s also an un..
She might be entering her eighth decade, but Barbara Kasten is still going strong. On Friday the American artist opens an exhibition at New York’s Bortolami gallery, showcasing new photographs, a sculpture, and the photo-sculpture hybrids she’s been working on of late, which relate to her freestanding sculptures and Amalgams of the 1970s.
As ever, architecture is at the heart of Kasten’s thinking as an artist. The show’s title, ‘Parti Pris’, refers to the common term for the big idea behind an architect’s design, usually presented as a diagram. Kasten’s parti pris here might have been ‘bridging dimensions’, but this being art, not architecture, it’s all left open to interpretation.
Progression Two, 2017
What you will see at Bortolami is plenty of dimensional play: in Collisions, a series of grand, colour-rich Fujiflex photographs of acrylic fragments started in 2016, with new additions presented at ‘Parti Pris’, 3D structures are perceived but flattened – an ambiguous space in betw..
If you like this article, you probably want to sign up to be notified when my new book on Visual Thinking is out (in less than a month, I promise!) Also, there is discussion and some clarification on the Medium version of the post.
When I first heard about Design Thinking, I thought it was a clever rebranding effort by IDEO to charge twice as much for user-centered design. What can I say, I’m an old fart of a designer, and when I read about design thinking, I didn’t really see the big whup. And I wasn’t alone.
But over time I’ve discovered that the oft-parodied approach to Design Thinking — a lot of post-its and a lot of prototyping — works better than nearly any other approach to product and service innovation.
Do designers truly think in a different way?
The key is the word “thinking.” I want to make an argument that Design Thinking is a kind of thinking based on three key cognition theories:

Photo by Christine Roy According to a recent McKinsey Global Institute report, the number of people in the global labor force will reach 3.5 billion by 2030 — and yet there will still be a shortage of skilled workers. The result is likely to be intensified global competition for talent. Rather than assuming we’ll work in one location, in our native culture, we will need new skills, attitudes, and behaviors that help us work across cultures. Our ways of thinking about careers, colleagues, and collaboration will need to become more flexible and adaptable. My five-year study of the global workforce at Rakuten, the Japan-based e-commerce powerhouse, gave me a close-up look at what will drive success for this new type of global worker.
Prior to 2010, Rakuten had been a multilingual global company. The Japanese employees in the Tokyo headquarters communicated in Japanese, the Americans in the U.S. subsidiary spoke English, and the workers in Asia, Europe, and South America spoke a mixture o..
Photo by Toia Montes In more and more occupations, creativity is part of the job description. Whether you are trying to reconcile conflicting stakeholder priorities, finding a solution to a customer’s issue, or launching a new product line, your solution probably won’t come out of a textbook. But it’s hard to keep having great ideas day after day. What do you do when you run out of good ideas? How do you “get your mojo back”?
One increasingly popular solution is mindfulness meditation. Google, Goldman Sachs, and Medtronic are among the many leading firms that have introduced meditation and other mindfulness practices to their employees. Executives at these and other companies say meditation is not only useful as a stress-reduction tool but can also enhance creativity, opening doors where once there seemed to be only a wall.
To gain a deeper understanding of the effectiveness of short meditation sessions in boosting creativity, we looked first at the literature and then conducted our ..
Photo by Aaron Burson The buzz over artificial intelligence (AI) has grown loud enough to penetrate the C-suites of organizations around the world, and for good reason. Investment in AI is growing and is increasingly coming from organizations outside the tech space. And AI success stories are becoming more numerous and diverse, from Amazon reaping operational efficiencies using its AI-powered Kiva warehouse robots, to GE keeping its industrial equipment running by leveraging AI for predictive maintenance.
While it’s clear that CEOs need to consider AI’s business implications, the technology’s nascence in business settings makes it less clear how to profitably employ it. Through a study of AI that included a survey of 3,073 executives and 160 case studies across 14 sectors and 10 countries, and through a separate digital research program, we have identified 10 key insights CEOs need to know to embark on a successful AI journey.
Don’t believe the hype: Not every business is using AI… y..
L’utilisation de bases de données en entreprise est aussi vieille que l’informatique, par contre la destination et l’usage de ces données change ce qui force les entreprises à faire face à leurs négligences.
L’intérêt premier d’une base de donnée est le stockage et la facilité d’accès aux données. Nul besoin de démontrer comment, par exemple, une base de donnée produit est infiniment plus efficace à manipuler qu’un catalogue papier de milliers de références, chacune disponible en de multiples versions ou comment un annuaire d’entreprise vaut mieux que l’annuaire papier rarement exhaustif et à jour qu’il a remplacé.
La fin de l’autoconsommation des bases de données Mais pendant longtemps les données ont largement été autoconsommées. Comprenez qu’elles avaient vocation être utilisées par ceux qui les renseignaient. Leur qualité dépendant donc principalement de la capacité d’une personne à connaitre suffisamment son sujet pour se satisfaire de données imparfaites ou inexactes.
Steven Moore for HBR The retail scene in Africa has undergone a rapid transformation. A few years ago, many staple Western goods were hard to come by in some markets. Now, branded items — from luxury cosmetics to fast food and fast fashion — are becoming widely available at the glittering new shopping malls scattered around the region’s fast-growing cities.
Take the new Two Rivers Mall in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi. Completed in February 2017, it is eastern Africa’s largest shopping venue, housing grocery chains, restaurants, and luxury boutiques. But visit Two Rivers on a weekday, and the vast complex is empty. Why? Locals will tell you the mall is inconvenient to get to, and despite poverty levels in the region falling amid strong economic growth and foreign investment, the products sold there are too expensive for Nairobi residents to afford.
