Alicja Kwade.

Alicja Kwade, (born in 1979 Katowice, Poland) is a contemporary artist who lives and works in Berlin. Her artworks investigates and questions the structures of our reality and society and reflects on the perception of time in our everyday life. Her diverse practice is based around concepts of space, time, science and philosophy, takes shape in sculptural objects, video, installations and even photography. 

Below, some examples of her work, the first piece is one of my favourites:

'In a display case, labelled glass jars with pulverized contents are presented. In this series, Kwade had different objects - a bicycle, a radio, a lamp or a clock - separated into component parts and then professionally pulverized in a lengthy process. The ground components with a particle size of 0.5 mm, the size of a grain of sand, were poured into the various glass jars. Precise specifications of the weight and contents of the itemized materials trace the industrial product back to its original materiality. With this installation, Kwade presents an image of a ‘decomposing material world.'

I do not even know where to start. I absolutely adore this woman's work. Mostly the artistic side. She was one of the founders of Memphis Group, along Ettore Sottsass among others, in 1980. She left the group in 1986, and became a painter and artist ever since.

I do love the chromatic taste and harmonic compositions. Here some drawings, paintings and constructions absolutely gorgeous. So inspiring! This is the kind of visual experience that makes me travel to a very happy place.

Ángela Ruiz Robles.

... And 'The mechanical encyclopedia'.

I would like to share my admiration for this woman, Ángela Ruiz Robles (born March 28, 1895 in Villamarín, Leon - died October 27, 1975 in Ferrol, A Coruña. Spain), she was a teacher, writer and inventor. She dedicated her life to teaching. She was a strong advocate of education. She wanted to make learning easier, lighter and accesible to everyone. And prove to her students that Education is the most powerful tool in life. 

Miss Angela invented among other things "The mechanical book" or "The mechanical encyclopedia", an interactive device which allows to lighten the weight of the books carried by her students. The book consisted in a series of text and illustrations on reels, all under a sheet of magnifying glass with a light for reading in the dark, and was to incorporate sound explanations of each topic. For this device she is considered as a pioneer of the electronic book. It was a shame that she couldn't find funding to produce and sell this wonderful idea but it was recognized and awarded at the time, at least.
