Premiering February 21, Design Indaba FilmFest 2014 will present an array of films devoted to creativity in its countless forms. With feature-length films on urban design, street and performance art, photography, architecture, motion graphics and more, it will be sure to delight design fans of all types. Not only is the event’s content unique- the moving-going experience sets itself apart with a selection of films being screened at an old drive-in at Maiden’s Cove, Clifton and the rest projected at South Africa’s oldest surviving building The Castle of Good Hope. Never-before seen in South Africa, the films ruminate on inspiration, human nature, and the urban condition, undoubtedly leaving the viewer with a lasting impression.

Bookshelf: What We’re Reading

books

There’s a lot happening these days at Wert&Co.–reflected in six books we would like to share with you. We’ve been preparing for a few talks and seeking to understand ourselves and our work more deeply, finding inspiration from the self discovery of childhood to the wisdom (hopefully) gained over the years. This month we also mourned the loss of John Berger who’s seminal Ways of Seeing provided us not just with a tool to view art in a revolutionary way, but a tool to understand critically the images that surround us. Finally with data ruling the day, in both politics and our work, we’ve found ourselves recently in a deep dive on both the mechanics, design and ethics of this fascinating subject.

 

Oh yes, the planet is sublime!

I have a crazy,
crazy love of things.
I like pliers,
and scissors.
I love
cups,
rings,
and bowls –
not to speak, of course,
of hats.
I love
all things,
not just
the grandest,
also
the
infinite-
ly
small–
thimbles,
spurs,
plates,
and flower vases.
Oh yes,
the planet
is sublime!
