Sir Ken Robinson outlines 3 principles crucial for the human mind to flourish — and how current education culture works against them. In a funny, stirring talk he tells us how to get out of the educational “death valley” we now face, and how to nurture our youngest generations with a climate of possibility.

“Gena and I are freaks. We are. We’re absolutely freakishly obsessed with wanting to convey something that is very hard for us to express in our life. To dig deeply into the way things are, through people, is what I like and what the people who work with me like also. To find out the delicate balance between living and dying. I mean, I think that’s the only subject there is.”
SF49, mixed media, map collage on canvas, 24”x24”
A new map of San Francisco made from old maps. The original is 24”x24” and made from a series of 49 cut outs of the San Francisco map. It is made from maps of many of the different places where San Franciscans originally came from before coming home to the City we love. Over 100 countries are represented in the finished piece. The 49 maps are laid out in a 7x7 grid — a nod to the “7x7 mile” size of our City that is approximately, very approximately, 49 square miles. It’s the City where 49 is an especially magical number.
Looks like George Bluth Senior has a new hiding place.
I’d so create elegant place settings with her.
Besides timepieces, Baselworld is full of new offerings in fine jewellery and one brand which caught our attention this year is Spanish brand Carrera y Carrera. Our favourite from its latest collection, Tesoros del Imperio, is the Reina ring. Carved in yellow and white gold, the item is inspired by the elaborate and elegant lace worn by Reina Isabel de Francia, Queen of Spain, 1615.
