Meanwhile news on other projects: click on the derive icon for further developments in Eduardo Cachucho’s Derive “urban exploration app”. Eduardo has been opening up the source code of the application making it available to all and eventually also open to personal interpretations and customisations.
“Dérive is a randomly generated way to explore a city. Influenced by the Situationist movement, it is meant to aid city-dwellers in finding new and un-charted areas of their city.” Eduardo Cachucho

Cai Weidong interviews Michelangelo Pistoletto with the help of interpreter Lin Yi-Chun. Amongst other things he questions Michelangelo about the role of religion and spirituality in his work, his opinion of Asian art and a clarification of the myth of the Third Paradise.
Cittadellarte’s decade-long collaboration with illy revolves around UNIDEE and its annual International Residency Programme. Every year illy invites the UNIDEE artists to take part in a design competition. The 2010 winner whose design was chosen to go into production is Cameroonian artist Alioum Moussa and above is his winning design for the illy coffee can.
Alioum has now been invited to design the outfits for Galleria illy’s attendants. In a development of his UNIDEE residency project, Moussa will use second-hand clothes (originally sent to Africa by Europe), hand embroidery and a touch of graphic design to create unique pieces of art.
In the studio Ekaterina Kravtsova is making a work for the forthcoming Friday in F.R.A.C. show (Friday 23 September):
Kate has collected old clothes from local people she has known during the residency along with personal stories and memories related to those objects. Inspired by an ancient weaving technique, used in Russia to create carpets, she has shredded these clothes and reassembled them in the form of mountains, a favourite place for the Biellese…
Karolina Rychlik has been knitting In the Giardini in front of Esselunga in the centre of Biella for a period of time daily, all this week. She has been inviting passers by to stop and knit with her for a while and to help her create a textile that she will use in a dance performance as part of the Co-Lab event this 18 September in Palazzo Ferrero, Biella.
