OpenArtCode Monaco will be held at the Auditorium Rainier III in occasion of GemlucART, from 11-20 October 2015. GemlucART is organized by GEMLUC (Groupement des Entreprises Monegasques dans la Lutte contre le Cancer) a charitable association founded in 1973 to help in the fight against cancer. The theme of GemlucART 2015 is “Soi même” – “To be yourself”. An international jury composed by museum curators and art critics will judge the exhibited works and will award several prizes. The first prize consists in a two-week solo exhibition at the prestigious Ribolzi Gallery in Monaco.
Vito Abba's insight:
The OpenArtCode artist, Christine Drummond, who won the first prize in a previous edition, had a very successful exhibition at the Ribolzi Gallery and was present at the vernisssage the Honorary President of GEMLUC, S.A.R. the Princess Caroline of Hannover.
Seth Robertson and Viet Tran, engineering students of George Mason University, have a new explanation of how to put out a fire and they build their very own practical peace of fire-fighting technology.
Their new fire-fighting solution works with sound waves by pushing low frequency sound waves “30 to 60 hertz range” to the flames you can separate the oxygen from the fuel. The fire has a triangle of needs: Heat, Fuel and Oxygen. And simply by taking any of these needs away, you can put out the fire. What wave sound does to this triangle is to bring air (Oxygen) back and forth which keeps the air away from fire but in molecule levels. The fire will act like a cat going after a laser pointer light and that is all it takes to cut off the oxygen from the fire.
But the inventors have even more dreams for their new flagship, Washington post reports: “Robertson and Tran envision their technology being used to put out fires in homes — and in the wild. If properly scaled, sound-wave extinguishers would eliminate the need to douse forests in chemicals or waste untold gallons of water”. But that’s still a long way away.
Social networks have many counter-intuitive properties, including the "friendship paradox" that states, on average, your friends have more friends than you do. Recently, a variety of other paradoxes were demonstrated in online social networks. This paper explores the origins of these network paradoxes. Specifically, we ask whether they arise from mathematical properties of the networks or whether they have a behavioral origin. We show that sampling from heavy-tailed distributions always gives rise to a paradox in the mean, but not the median. We propose a strong form of network paradoxes, based on utilizing the median, and validate it empirically using data from two online social networks. Specifically, we show that for any user the majority of user's friends and followers have more friends, followers, etc. than the user, and that this cannot be explained by statistical properties of sampling. Next, we explore the behavioral origins of the paradoxes by using the shuffle test to remove correlations between node degrees and attributes. We find that paradoxes for the mean persist in the shuffled network, but not for the median. We demonstrate that strong paradoxes arise due to the assortativity of user attributes, including degree, and correlation between degree and attribute.

The exhibition Picasso and Spanish Modernity, made up of a selection of almost 90 works – 42 of them of Picasso- from the Museo Reina Sofía Collection, represents multiple approaches to the plastic and poetic foundations in Pablo Picasso’s most decisive contributions, as well as those by the Spanish artists involved in the creation of Modern Art.
Not only is there a consideration of Picasso’s influence on Modern Art in Spain, but also, primarily, it aims to show the most original and important characteristics in the artistic sensibility with which the artist and other Spanish creators contributed to the international arts scene.
As a result, the exhibition refers to the role of Picasso as both artist and myth, putting forward the idea of variation as an element that distinguishes his concept of modernity, embarking on a journey through the way he approached the transfer of meanings, figures and symbols from the representation of monstrosity and tragedy, arriving at the realisation of Guernica.
The exhibition, always based on Picasso, in addition to his relationships with Juan Gris, Joan Miró, Julio González, Salvador Dalí, Óscar Domínguez and Antoni Tàpies, considers, on one side, the singular – and relatively unknown – Spanish contribution to the art of the constructed form, both specific and analytical, while on the other, the new lyricism represented by the painting of signs, surfaces and sculpture understood as “drawing in space”.
Moreover, it analyses the distinctive dialectics of Spanish creation between realism and super-realism, delving deeper into another creative register, into the powerful relationship between nature and culture as an expression of identity, established by artists rooted in their places of origin or vernaculars.
The exhibit, curated by Eugenio Carmona, concludes with an approach to the way Spanish artists foresaw the shift towards another notion of modernity through a chronological and aesthetic opening that moved in the direction of the present.
Some of these ways of understanding and assembling contributions to Spanish plastic modernity are considered for the first time in an exhibition and are the result of studies and work to comprehend and recover carried out in recent decades. Thus, the exhibition constitutes an attempt to reconsider Modern Art by approaching it with originality and from unconventional points of view.
The list of Spanish artists is formed by por Rafael Barradas, Aurelio Bibiano de Arteta, María Blanchard, Francisco Bores, Eduardo Chillida, Martín Chirino, Pancho Cossío, Leandre Cristòfol, Salvador Dalí, Josep de Togores, Óscar Domínguez, Equipo 57, Ángel Ferrant, Pablo Gargallo, Julio González, Juan Gris, José Guerrero, Antonio López, Maruja Mallo, Manuel Millares, Joan Miró, Manuel Ángeles Ortiz, Jorge Oteiza, Pablo Palazuelo Pablo Picasso, Benjamín Palencia, Alfonso Ponce de León, Alberto Sánchez, Antonio Saura, José Gutiérrez Solana, Joaquín Sunyer, Antoni Tàpies, Joaquín Torres García, José Val del Omar, Daniel Vázquez Díaz and Esteban Vicente.
