John Pobojewski recently presented at MAS CONTEXT : ANALOG this past fall. His presentation, entitled Design of Music, was the first focused on his work in sound, as well as a brief, somewhat silly primer on the role of design used within music composition. Check it out here.
MAS CONTEXT: ANALOG is the annual conference of MAS Context, a quarterly journal created by MAS Studio and Iker Gil that addresses issues that affect the urban context. Each issue delivers a comprehensive view of a single topic through the active participation of people from different fields and different perspectives who, together, instigate the debate.
Thirst has three works on view at the Art Institute of Chicago as part of the inaugural exhibition of the new modern and contemporary architecture and design galleries titled Past Forward: Architecture and Design at the Art Institute.
Gather Give Grow is a film highlighting Archeworks' Mobile Food Collective (MFC) program which premiered at the U.S. Pavilion of the 12th International Architecture Exhibition at the 2010 Venice Biennale.
Also on display is a front and back cover press sheet for Emigre, Issue No. 26, All Fired Up designed by Rick Valicenti in 1993, as well as his Fluxus Vivus poster for the Arts Club of Chicago from the same year.
Saturday, October 22, Rick Valicenti will be giving an artist talk in celebration of his exhibition, (maybe) THIS TIME, in the Regis Multipurpose Room of Loyola University. Valicenti will answer questions about his work, and a reception will follow in the Ralph Arnold Gallery.

Thirst's John Pobojewski is highlighted for his work on O'Hare's International Terminal murals and videos for the 36th Annual Interiors Awards in Communication Arts Illustration Annual 57 as part of a feature on five Chicago designers. In the article, titled New Currents in Chicago Design, Tom Biederbeck comments that Chicago design is always transforming — "a flow that's never the same, but always reflects what's gone before." John's work is accompanied by that of Cody Hudson, Jeremiah Chiu, Renata Graw, and Jennifer Mahanay.
The feature reminded us of a very similar piece by Pat and Greg Samata in the March/April 1989 issue of Communication Arts that also highlights five Chicago designers: Jeff Barnes, Kym Abrams, Robert Petrick, Steven Liska, and Rick Valicenti.
