Jannuzzi, Michele; Smith, Richard
Technological advances have changed not only the constraints and possibilities of individual media, but the interplay between media, and our expectations. Never before have we had the potential to channel and cross-reference such a wealth and diversity of information; and never before have we been posed such difficult questions about how information is structured, delivered, and accessed; about who sees what, where, and for how long. Designers not only have to be successful in designing for this medium and that medium but in making them work in tandem with each other, without tautology or contradiction. A cross-media approach involves media selection, optimisation, and articulation to define effective and efficient strategies for the delivery of information, where each medium is played according to its strengths. In this environment everyone is a prospector: everything is up for grabs. This book illustrates these themes through the working methodology of Jannuzzi Smith, one of Europe's most innovative and influential design studios.

Schwabsky, Barry
In this collection of critical essays the well-known critic Barry Schwabsky reexamines the art produced since the 1960s, demonstrating how the achievements of "high modernism" remain consequential to it, through tensions among representation, abstraction, and pictorial language. With the core of the book focused on Michelangelo Pistoletto and Mel Bochner, Schwabsky also studies the work of emerging artists who also continue to examine modernism's legacies. 230pp.

Greenwood, Ernest
The writings which comprise my memoirs were started over twenty years ago when I was still painting. Verse can express, emotions of love, joy and sadness in a manner divorced from most painters' subject matter. This, I find, is especially so nowadays in the prevalence of the abstract - with most practitioners' work having many human verities absent - not only in Europe but world-wide. This change in thinking has been enormous and is one that is seen most clearly in the visual arts. Now that circumstances make painting impossible for me, writing has moved into first place. Even so, as with painting, progress has been slow. But writing is so very different from painting - so many thoughts and imaginative images, often distantly or subtly related, can imbue a poem with a lasting mystery, or a glimpse into a lovely insubstantial world. This volume completes my "Trilogy Chr(45)" "My Life", "My Painting" and finally "My Writing". Although they have emerged as separate books, the writing of Part III was essential to complete the narrative as I conceived it - there has been a great deal to think about, much to ponder over. 240pp.
