SHANGHAI: Over 20 superstars and fashion elite wearing delicately designed chocolate clothes on the theme “Opera” were the highlight of the start of the 15th Paris Salon du Chocolat in Shanghai yesterday, the world’s biggest chocolate event.
Started 15 years ago in Paris, the Salon du Chocolat has now been hosted in New York, Tokyo and Moscow, as well as Beijing in 2005.
However, it has taken another five years for this worldly chocolate event to finally come to Shanghai, where many of the French companies in China are located. via [chinadaily]

The Put your foot down campaign teamed up with YCN and artist Riitta Ikonen to turn the hundreds of shoes we received into a fantastic work of art.
More than 15 million women are living with HIV globally and every half minute another becomes infected. Widespread violence against women and girls is at the heart of these statistics. On World AIDS Day 2008, ActionAid decided to do something about this, with the launch of our Put your foot down campaign.
Working with young artist Riitta Ikonen and YCN, we created a piece of art using the shoes you sent in. The finished product, an installation which uses customised shoes to tell the stories of women affected by violence and HIV and AIDS, was unveiled on International Women’s Day 2009 (8 March) at the Department for International Development.
Riitta Ikonen has just completed her installation for ActionAid. via YCNonline |link|

Came across this article by Stephen Totilo who recently took a trip to see the work of early 20th century painter Vasily Kandinsky. He descibed ” There are plenty of painters who developed their style differently. Not all veered toward abstraction. But walking past Kandinsky’s life’s work, walking through it chronologically, watching the development of his style and interests, I couldn’t help but think I was seeing the “progress” of video game graphics in reverse.
On the lowest level, at Kandinsky’s earliest work, I saw the closest things in the exhibition to a Gears of War or God of War.
At the top of my spiral journey, I saw Pac-Mans and Centipedes”. Article
I most certainly remember the early years of electronic gaming especially Pak-man, i suppose you could even go back to some of the original black and white games ‘ Pong ‘ strange to think that these images were classified as art but looking back some of the game footage was creative considering the technology.
ioneer of abstract art and eminent aesthetic theorist, Vasily Kandinsky (b. 1866, Moscow; d. 1944, Neuilly-sur-Seine, France) broke new ground in painting in the first decades of the twentieth century. His seminal pre–World War I treatise Über das Geistige in der Kunst (On the Spiritual in Art), published in Munich in December 1911, lays out his program for developing an art independent of one’s observations of the external world. In this and other texts, as well as his art, Kandinsky strove to use abstraction to give painting the freedom from nature that he admired in music. His discovery of a new subject matter based solely on the artist’s “inner necessity” occupied him throughout his life. via http://www.guggenheim.org

Don’t take your caravan to the country, let the caravan bring the country to you. Caravan by Kevin Van Braak is customised caravan that opens out to provide a grassy area of calm to wherever it’s situated. With our environment becoming increasingly more concrete and green spaces disappearing rapidly, Caravan can bring a touch of country living to anywhere it’s needed.
Mr Van Braak, from Amsterdam, bought a 1976 Constructam Caravan, stripped out the inside and cut it in half so it would open flat to reveal a grassed area capable of seating 15 people.
He said: ‘My caravan appears to be no different from any other caravan when it is pulled behind a car but when opened it manifests itself as an artificial garden, park or camping sight.’

It takes six weeks to build a ‘jingle truck’, the brightly decorated lorries that rumble through the city of Peshawar. Adnan Khan meets the men who paint them and discovers how their work reflects the inner lives of the drivers of these massive murals on wheels.
‘Think of it this way: when a man gets married, his bride is decorated for him – she is made as beautiful as she can possibly be. For a truck driver, his truck is his bride,” says Baqir Khan, a Pakistani trucker.
