Issey Miyake and Reality Lab, the Japanese designer’s research and development team, have won a coveted “Oscar” from the Design Museum of London.

Mr. Miyake’s studio on Tuesday beat the Alexander McQueen wedding gown for the Duchess of Cambridge, created just a year ago by Sarah Burton, as well as a variety of other nominees, including the Céline autumn 2011 collection by Phoebe Philo and the “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Many innovative ideas from the award’s seven categories, including architecture, digital design, furniture and graphics, are on display in the Designs of the Year 2012 exhibition (until July 4; designmuseum.org).

Among the extraordinary inventions and progressive ideas are the winning outfits from Mr. Miyake’s studio that seem to encompass different kinds of modernity: clothes that fold flat, opening with 3D dimensions and made from recycled polyester.

Just looking at the mathematically calculated designs, creating prisms of unfolding shapes, is to realize that the Pleats Please invention from Mr. Miyake, which started nearly 25 years ago in 1988, was only the beginning of a series of futuristic ideas.

It looks beautiful folded too. Jun Mitani, the computer scientist they collaborated with, makes some neat origami stuff

i wonder if the wearer can actually fold it back into place? or does it end up being crumpled like a tourist's road map tongue.gif

That's called user customization. You will also need a special washing machine

A few years ago I wrote a paper together with a physicist at MIT named Max Tegmark, where we looked at particular risks like vacuum decay, which is this hypothetical phenomena where space decays into a lower energy state, which would then cause this bubble propagating at the speed of light that would destroy all structures in its path, and would cause a catastrophe that no observer could ever see because it would come at you at the speed of light, without warning....
 
...experts have estimated our total existential risk for this century to be somewhere around 10-20%.

Ralph Eugene Meatyard

Quote:
Ralph Eugene Meatyard, who was born in Normal, Illinois in 1925 and died of cancer in Lexington, Kentucky in 1972, worked his entire adult life as an optician, making lenses for glasses. Though he took and developed thousands of pictures, only a sampling of his work has been published.

Of all the photographers of the ordinary, Ralph Eugene Meatyard is perhaps the most oddball, giving reality a flip that often puts it into the realm of sur-reality. His creepy, staged shots of family and friends in strange masks but homey settings, or unmasked in derelict places that turn spooky, are weirdly unsettling while at the same time involved with the familiar interactions of everyday life.

Like any fond father, Meatyard photographed his children growing up. But it wouldn't do just to shoot them in usual haunts. He liked to take his wife and their three children to broken-down houses around Lexington, Ky., the town he lived in most of his life, and depict them playing, jumping and rolling around, wearing masks or making faces, in dank interiors with broken windows, or standing aimlessly in front of the ruined facades.

The mask worn by the child at the bottom of the bleacher steps (a 1964 photograph titled Romance (N.) From Ambrose Bierce #3, see first pic below) would later be the face of the central figure in Meatyard’s last project before his untimely death: the Lucybelle Crater series, a fictional family photo album where Meatyard would dispense with the murky background and rely entirely on the transgressive impact of his masked figures nonchalantly inhabiting the daylit world like regular folk--as if they belonged.

At a time when photographs tended to document the world unadorned, the expressive quality of Meatyard’s pictures was generally out of favor with the artistic community of the 1950s. It was basically not until the 1970s that his work came to any notable prominence. Though he assigned himself the title “amateur” (and wore it proudly), he was long disappointed that his contributions to photography were not more widely recognized. In response to his omission from the 1964 edition of Beamont Newhall’s seminal History of Photography, Meatyard mounted a print of Romance (N.) From Ambrose Bierce #3 as the frontispiece in his own copy.
