GOOGLE LENS, GOOGLE MAPS and the helpful red guiding fox

GUIDING-FOX-GOOGLE-MAPS-AUGMENTED-REALITY-CUTEANDKIDS-BLOG

Today I was discussing with some friends that the world is changing so  fast, that it will arrive a moment when I will not able to follow what is going on. Sometimes I feel so exhausted, that I think about one of Mafalda’s famous quotes: “Stop the world that I want to get off!”.

Growing up, I remember my father telling my mum in the car:  Josefa, take the map and look how we can get to… 

And now, thirty years later, 30 yeats that have gone like thunder, I am reading about AR, and how a cute red fox will guide me through Madrid in an app installed in my own smartphone. If you stop for a moment to think about it, it seems crazy, doesn’t it?

Ordrupgaard Museum- Art Playground 2018

Do you remember Alice in Wonderland? Alice fell into the hole under the hedge and woke up in a magical garden, full of funny creatures and an amazing new landscape.

This is exactly how my children feel when we visit the gardens of the Ordrupgaard Museum in Charlottenlund, a city 8 km north of Copenhagen. A magical Wonderland appears under the trees: a pine cone house, a gigantic mushroom, a mirror where you can see yourself reflected forever and their favorite one: Olafur Eliasson’s Vær i vejret (Weather the Weather), a ring that emits a gust of fog depending where the wind blows. Magical, believe me.

Now they will inaugurate two new works in the park and I fear my children will want to move there forever.

Experiencing Art – L’Atelier des Lumières in París

How many times have you heard the expression: “art has to be lived”!

Thanks to the technology, the expression can turn real in L’Atelier des Lumières in París, a digital art center where art lives in 3D.

If you are in Paris, or will be before the end of the year, you should visit this exhibition. You will walk along the work of Gustav Klimt or Egon Schiele, among other Vienesse artists.

To let or not to let your kids use devices & Apps, that is the question

kids-and-use-app-mobile-phones-cuteandkids-blog

Last week I read an interesting article about don’t  letting our kids to use Apps. It was written by Mark Wilson, senior writer at Fast Company. And I liked it, it made me think.

My eldest wants to have her own mobile phone and to be in Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Youtube, Musical.ly and another trendy social media Apps, and of course she wants to be in Whats up.

And what I think about it?

Is Social Media so bad for them? Or we just let them use it?

Are there aliens? BEAKUS knows it.

Are there aliens? Beakus knows it

Life began on the Earth around 3.5 billion years ago. Has the same thing happened somewhere else in the universe? On an icy moon? On a planet in the Goldilocks zone of a distant star? Imagine if hypothetical aliens were looking for signs of life in our solar system. How might they investigate us from so far away? BEAKUS knows how to explain it. Read more

What do you think about this piece of art? Do you like it? I love it. I am very impressed by this talented artist.

I am an art lover. Last February I visited for the first time ARCOmadrid 2018, the International Contemporary Art Fair focus on the latest artistic trends. It was a pleasure to walk through all the incredible art galleries,  a very interesting selection of contemporary art made by the best art-galleries in the world.

I enjoyed it a lot, specially Juan Genoves works, and the sculptural ensemble titled Aleppo by Francisco Leiro. It was one of the most incredible personal experiences in my whole life.

And at the end of that day I discovered Leo Nar Do paints.
