Dior celebrates its 70th anniversary in Paris at Les Arts Décoratifs



Christian Dior is the pinnacle of elegance, there is no doubt about that, it’s a fact. I knew Dior as a teenager with a keen interest in fashion, but I really discovered Maison Christian Dior during the internship I had at Dior as a part of my studies. Even though my internship was focused on marketing and management, I had access to a gold mine, ... More
Japanese Sumo Robots: The Art of Fighting



Robot-sumo is a sport (yes, Wikipedia got it right) in which two robots attempt to push each other out of a circle (in a similar fashion to the sport of sumo). If I’m not really into Sumo wrestling, I’m definitely into robots (like this Real Life-Size Wall-E Robot), more specifically into sumobots. I’ve seen some battles, with robots ... More

Claude Iverné’s photographs at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson



I had the chance to see French photographer Claude Iverné’s previous exhibition in Paris, it was in 2012 at the gallery Clémentine de la Féronnière and you can read my post to know more about it: Rashid Mahdi, Claude Iverné and Sudanese photographs. Iverné is back in Paris but unfortunately, I’m not sure this time I’ll be there to ... More
The Higgs boson particle blew up the universe but what did the inflating?



In 2012, I shared with you my excitement regarding the discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN in Higgs boson: our understanding of the universe is about to change. If the Higgs boson is now introduced as the particle that blew up the universe, a recent article published by New Scientist raises the question: Believe it or not, this burst of cosmological ... More

Fermi Paradox: Why we haven’t found Aliens yet? They might be aestivating



My Steampunk doppelganger, adventurous space traveler Max Von Sama, is exploring time and space on the SamaAirship. She wants to know more about dark matter, she is looking for potentially habitable exoplanets (hence her destination: Kepler), and wants to find an answer to the Fermi question. She has ambition. Needless to say when I read: That is not dead ... More

Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Martin Wong and other artists at the Whitney Museum



At the time Jean-Michel Basquiat died (my post about the documentary and exhibition for the 50th anniversary of his birth), I was drawing my observing eye a.k.a da-eYe in the streets of Paris. And when I visited ‘Les Hiéroglyphes de Keith Haring’ in Paris, da-eYe had to pay tribute to his mentor (my post + pic here). If you’ve been reading this ... More

In a recent article published on the MIT Technology Review website, Tom Simonite, MIT Technology Review’s San Francisco bureau chief, explains how malicious software could use brain interfaces to help steal passwords and other private data: Nitesh Saxena, an associate professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, has shown that it can also help ...

Remembering Carrie Fischer on Star Wars Day



Today is May, 4 and it’s Star Wars Day. So don’t be surprised if some people around you gather together, make Star Wars cakes or simply say to you: ‘May the 4th be with you!‘. On this special once-a-year celebration, I can’t help but think of Carrie Fischer, the legendary actress who played Princess Leia who died last year. ... More

Kantaka and the Meroe Pyramids in Sudan



Today, Sudan may be known for the genocide in Darfur by its infamous dictator President Omar al-Bashir, the deadly conflict in the Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile… If you read this blog and know my commitments through The MagkaSama Project, you already know the horrific situation many Sudanese are living.  But what you may not know, is that Sudan is a ...
