Japanology Plus: Japanese Bento Trends

"Bento are portable boxes of food, typically composed of rice, protein-rich main dishes, and vegetables on the side. They've evolved from a purely practical means of sustenance into a fun way to eat - these days, there's even a fad for bento with cute characters drawn using the food. This time on Japanology Plus, our theme is bento. Our guest is Ayao Okumura, one of the leading experts on Japan's culinary culture. And in Plus One, the latest trends in bento boxes."

Bot & Dolly and the Rise of Creative Robots

"This is Bot & Dolly, a boutique design studio that specializes in combining massive mechanical arms with custom software for movies, architecture, digital fabrication, and entertainment installations. 'We're a culture of makers, of creators with open minds,' says Tobias Kinnebrew, Bot & Dolly's director for product strategy. 'We work on things that don't seem possible and try to make them possible.'

One of Bot & Dolly's first clients, Google (GOOG), bought into that vision quite literally. In 2012 it commissioned Bot & Dolly to create an attention–grabbing experience to promote its Nexus Q media–streaming device at the Google I/O conference. Bot & Dolly built an 8–foot–across, 300–pound Nexus Q mounted on a robot arm that passersby controlled via several Nexus gadgets working in tandem. ...

Bot & Dolly was started four years ago by Jeff Linnell and Randy Stowell, as a side project at their video production company, Autofuss. (The cafe at the front of their building, called Front, is the pair's latest joint endeavor.) Still operating independently with around 20 full–timers, Bot & Dolly is best known for bringing weightlessness to the big screen for last year's Oscar–winning film Gravity."

The Public: the gallery for the future to close

"When designs for The Public were first put forward in 1994, the gallery was intended to revitalise the community. Some residents, however, saw the building as an extravagance and a waste of money. Criticism steadily grew as the project ran into difficulties, with debts rising and funding falling short. The venue had to be rescued on more than one occasion by government grants or Arts Council funding. Earlier this week Mr Cooper described the arts centre as a 'giant shoe box' and said it should not have been built when it was by previous council leaders in his Labour group. He said he had always had doubts privately about the building. Since The Public opened, however, visitor numbers have steadily grown for theatre, music and comedy performances, as well as exhibitions."

The Broad: contemporary art museum by Diller Scofidio + Renfro

"The Broad is a new contemporary art museum built by philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad on Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles. The museum, which is designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, will open to the public in late 2014. The museum will be home to the nearly 2,000 works of art in The Broad Art Foundation and the Broads' personal collections, which are among the most prominent holdings of postwar and contemporary art worldwide. With its innovative 'vault–and–veil' concept, the 120,000–square–foot, $140–million building will feature two floors of gallery space to showcase The Broad's comprehensive collections and will be the headquarters of The Broad Art Foundation's worldwide lending library."
