Lin Tianmiao born 1961 is a contemporary Chinese installation artist and textile designer. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from Capital Normal University in Beijing in 1984. In the 1990s, Lin created works with materials of contrasting textures.Her signature medium became undyed cotton thread. One of her earliest works, The Proliferation of Thread Winding (1995), included 20,000 balls of thread attached with needles to a rice paper-covered iron bed.Lin’s work often deals with themes specific to women and while critics have compared her work to Western feminist art with its focus on the manifestations of domesticity, she has rejected that characterization.

Since the mid-1990s, her works have been included in every major international museum show on Chinese contemporary art.

Nightingale and Canary from Andy Thomas on Vimeo.

Australian artist Andy Thomas specializes in creating ‘audio life forms’: beautiful abstract shapes that react to sounds. In this animated short, he visualizes two recorded bird sounds from the archives of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision [beeldengeluid.nl] in Hilversum.

An increasing amount of sounds and images from European archives, museums and libraries are available for creative re-use. For the Europeana Creative Challenge, we’re looking for innovative projects that use archival material available via Europeana (europeana.eu) in a creative way. Send in your own idea to create, for example, a mash-up, an app or a game at ecreativechallenges2014.istart…. The winner will be aided by specialized professionals in realizing their project.

The deadline for submissions is August 28, 2014.
