Art:21 . Gabriel Orozco [via: see also: AND
"born in Jalapa, Veracruz, 1962, studied at Escuela Nacional de Arte Plasticas in Mexico City & at the Circulo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, Spain. An avid traveler, Gabriel Orozco uses the urban landscape and the everyday objects found within it to twist conventional notions of reality and engage the imagination of the viewer. Orozco’s interest in complex geometry & mapping find expression in works like the patterned human skull of “Black Kites,” the curvilinear logic of “Oval Billiard Table” & the extended playing field of the chessboard in “Horses Running Endlessly.” He considers philosophical problems, such as the concept of infinity & evokes them in humble moments, as in the photograph “Pinched Ball,” which depicts a deflated soccer ball filled with water. Matching his passion for political engagement with the poetry of chance encounters, Orozco’s photographs, sculptures & installations propose a distinctive model for the ways in which artists can affect the world with their work."

Charters, Tests, and the Tiresome Achievement Debate
"When looking inside many of the classrooms in these schools, we found a remarkably low level of cognitive demand being placed on students. The instructional emphasis frequently was on procedure, not on conceptual understanding. Students were not being asked to think for themselves, nor were they being asked to conjecture, evaluate, or assess. Why? Because the tests that hold these charter schools accountable do not measure higher-order thinking.

"Comissioned by LX 2.0 - a project by Lisboa 20 Arte Contemporânea and curated by Luis Silva - Google Is Not The Map (GISNTM) is a collection of 35+ GeoPoeMaps, a series of works in which ordinary maps become the unusual surfaces used to disarticulate perception of the world, to trace new routes accross the boundaries and to draw new imaginary geometries of the possible."
