abbey road album, beatles

The Album Abbey Road Signed by all four Beatles. The only one available in the world!! Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by English rock band the Beatles, released on 26 September 1969 by Apple Records. The recording sessions for the album were the last in which all four Beatles participated. Although Let It Be was the final album that the Beatles completed before the band's dissolution in April 1970, most of the album had been recorded before the Abbey Road sessions began. Many critics now view the album as the Beatles' best and rank it as one of the greatest albums of all time. The cover was designed by Apple Records creative director Kosh. It is the only original UK Beatles album sleeve to show neither the artist name nor the album title on its front cover, which was Kosh's idea, despite EMI claiming the record would not sell without this information. He later explained that "we didn't need to write the band's name on the cover ... They were the most famous band in the world. This Album is the only one available in the World signed by all 4 Beatles. For purchase or more information click "Add to Shopping back" or reach out to info@miljonet.com

murals of tibet

Majestic Illumination A thousand years of Tibetan mural masterpieces revealed for the first time Hidden amidst soaring snowy mountains, deep valleys, and desolate deserts are some of the greatest treasures of Buddhist culture and Tibetan heritage. For more than a decade, photographer Thomas Laird traveled the length, breadth, and far-flung corners of Tibet’s plateau to capture the land’s spectacular Buddhist murals in all their sublime vastness, intricacy, and their spiritual, emotional, and psychological enrichment. Deploying new multi-image digital photography, Laird compiled the world’s first archive of these artworks, some walls as wide as 10 meters, in life-size resolution. This breathtaking publication assembles Laird’s portfolio in extra-large format with six fold-outs, printed in five colors including gold. Featuring both complete murals and copious details, it immerses readers into these precious, extraordinary masterpieces. In recognition of this World Heritage landmark and preservation of Tibetan culture, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has signed all copies of this Collector’s Edition. In the 528-page scholarly companion book, Buddhist writer and academic Robert Thurman takes us through this transcendent journey with detailed text on the murals' spiritual significance while captions from experts Heather Stoddard and Jakob Winkler shed light on the storylines and artistic context of each image. As his Holiness the Dalai Lama has himself explained, these murals are not just objects of beauty, but serve as points of reference and guidance for practitioners of Buddhism, yoga, and meditation, as well as for anyone seeking to incorporate mindfulness into their daily life. Binding contemporary photographic technology with ancient traditions, this book is at once a majestic art piece, a major milestone in the appreciation of Buddhism, a precious monument to Tibetan culture, and a vital source for the contemplative arts and sciences. SUMO-sized Collector’s Edition limited to 998 copies, each signed by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, with a bookstand designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect and humanitarian pioneer Shigeru Ban.

convoi with horsemen - schelfhout

Schelfhout and Moerenhout are both painters with an extensive oeuvre. They painted mainly landscapes with figures. Their personal success dissuaded neither Schelfhout nor Moerenhout from working together closely and frequently. And for obvious reasons, both painters have a thorough command of the complete domain of the art of painting, but they also have each their preferences and special skills. Schelfhout feels more at home in the larger landscapes whereas Moerenhout is brilliant at adding staffage and is capable of supplying his colleague’s painting with the necessary vitality with animals and figures. The ”Karavaan met ruiters en figuren in een zuidelijk landschap “(Convoi with horsemen and figures in a southerly landscape) is a magnificent example of their cooperation. The wagons, piled up high, following their route; the clear figures in the forefront and the horizon which seems to melt into nothingness in the warm southerly light shows how their separate talents resulted in an harmonious work of art. Besides characteristics of Romanticism, this painting also demonstrates a certain affinity with the 17th century “Italianists”. There is one more striking characteristic presenting itself here apart from everything that has been said about their relationship as colleagues: There is the enormous joy that seems to be sparking off the painting. If this were the world of sports we might call this a “one-two”. Two painters of the same mind. Artist: Schelfhout, Andreas | 1787-1870, Dutch Creation year: 1848 Medium: Oil Paint Size: 69 x 94 cm 27.17 x 37.01 in.

FABERGÉ VISIONNAIRE CHRONOGRAPH CERAMIC The stars, and the time they measure, have seen many stories start and end. Some stories end abruptly, others echo down the eons.

deal, no deal or second referendum?

Deal, No Deal or Second referendum? Aricle By:Manish Singh, CFAChief Investment OfficerCrossbridge Capital LLPJanuary, 21th, 2019.Last week, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer the head of the ruling Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party in Germany and the likely next Chancellor, as well as over two dozen other German luminaries from the fields of politics, art, industry and sport issued a plea to the UK to change its mind and stay in the European Union (EU). The letter published in The Times of London marks a significant shift in Berlin’s tone. It talks about the role of Britain – “we realise that the freedom we enjoy as Europeans today has in many ways been built and defended by the British people” and its continued importance to Europe’s future – “Without your great nation, this continent would not be what it is today: a community defined by freedom and prosperity.” And goes on to implore –“We would miss Britain as part of the European Union, especially in these troubled times. Therefore, Britons should know: from the bottom of our hearts, we want them to stay.”A bit too late in the day, I’d say. Where were these good people before the referendum in 2016? That was the time for the esteemed leaders of the EU to give then UK Prime Minister David Cameron a worthy deal that he could sell to the British people. Instead, they gave him a bag of crisp hot Brussels air which Cameron tried to present to the British voters as a “great win,” and was repudiated. The realisation is dawning on many in the EU that a No Deal Brexit would hit the EU very hard and is therefore an undesirable outcome.  After hoping and wrongly presuming that the UK would cancel Brexit (a ludicrous thought that only highlights the gulf in understanding between the UK and the Continent), it is only now – after being convinced of the likelihood of collateral damage in its own country – that Germany is taking a more conciliatory approach. The realisation is finally dawning on many in Europe that a No Deal Brexit would hit the EU very hard and is therefore an undesirable outcome.Anyone with any interest in Germany and the EU and where they’re headed, would be well served to read the masterful analysis of the topic in the book Berlin Rules: Europe and the German Way. It is written by Sir Paul Lever, former British Ambassador to Germany and a senior member of the European Commission in Brussels who attended all European Council meetings from February 1979-85. In its institutional form, he suggests that the EU looks and “will continue to look like Germany” and that its “leadership of the EU is geared principally to the defence of German national interests.” His conclusion is that Germany will prevent the creation of the “all-powerful European super-state that ” and in 20 years’ time many (Brits) will have forgotten Britain was ever a member of the EU to make them regret their choice” and “others… may wonder what all the fuss was about.” I recommend the book highly.Last week also saw UK Prime Minister Theresa May suffer the largest parliamentary defeat in British political history, as the House of Commons rejected her Deal on Europe by 432 to 202 votes. By any yardstick, the defeat that May suffered is entirely of her own making. Tin-eared, distant, and reticent don’t even begin to define the approach she took to agreeing a “Withdrawal Agreement” with an intransigent EU. May couldn’t persuade a starving man to eat with the approach she has taken thus far. Tories must fear a terrible drubbing at the elections, if May continues as PM. Thankfully, she has promised she won’t lead the Tories into the next election. So, what’s next?To those who say “No Deal” is off the table or Brexit could be cancelled, I say this – No deal is not “on the table” but it is in the Statute Books. The European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 was passed through both Houses of Parliament and became law by Royal Assent on 26 June 2018. 498 of 650 MPs voted to trigger Article 50 i.e. a clear and overwhelming commitment to leave the EU. Over 80% of MPs subsequently were re-elected in 2017 on manifestos pledging to implement Brexit. Legally, in the absence of an agreed deal, the UK, therefore, will leave with “No Deal” on March 29, unless the Article 50 deadline is extended by the mutual agreement of the EU and the UK. A No Deal, however, doesn’t mean “crashing out” as some like to fear monger. It just means agreeing a set of side deals and a temporary return to WTO rules for trading, until new trade deals and arrangements are worked out between both parties.As I said on Bloomberg TV last week- I still believe that the UK will leave the EU with a deal. An extension of Article 50 is likely to give enough time to conclude a deal. There will be a transition period in which the UK will be part of the customs union and at the end of the transition period, the EU and the UK will move on to a Free Trade Agreement (FTA). As far as the UK is concerned the “freedom of movement” of workers is a red line and will not be up for negotiation. The EU doesn’t want a No Deal scenario. Nor does the UK for that matter. A No Deal would be very inconvenient for the UK in the short term, as details of new arrangements are worked out, but it would be a growing tragedy for the EU to lose a nation it has a big trade deficit with. Besides a No Deal at, minimum, means: Immediate halt to the £39 billion “divorce payment” to the EUNo further annual contributions of £13 billion to the EU budgetThe EU’s entire exports to the UK – £341 billion last year would be put at riskA severe macroeconomic calamity for IrelandThis, at a time when the economic woes of Germany (the driver of the EU 27) are growing as it is hit by weaker exports to China and elsewhere, as well as softer demand at home. A German slowdown is already ringing alarm bells in Brussels and at the European Central Bank (ECB). Weaker German growth is very bad news for the rest of the European continent, where many economies are linked to the demands of the German export machine and German consumers. For instance, Germany is France and Italy’s top export destination with 15% of total French exports and 12.5% of total Italian exports going to Germany. A slowdown in Germany would hit France and Italy hard. The possibility of a No Deal or messy Brexit, populism and unrest in France, mounting US protectionism and the slowdown in China all are major headwinds for Germany and the Eurozone. China is Germany’s largest trading partner ahead of the US. If that’s not enough, cast your mind back to last July and the Trump-Juncker conference that temporarily diffused the risk of damaging tariffs on EU auto exports to the US, in return for the EU pledging to work to achieve “zero tariffs, zero non-tariff barriers, and zero subsidies on non-auto industrial goods.” Fast forward 6 months, and the EU is now being accused by US officials of dragging its feet on trade talks in the hopes of waiting out the Trump administration. It won’t end well if you know what Trump is like. President Donald Trump is about to conclude a trade deal with China. With the Mexico-Canada and China deals completed, all efforts and urgency will go into taking on what Trump likes to call the EU’s “unfair trade deal” with the US that “robs” the US and treats it like a “piggy bank”. Expect fireworks soon. I see a second referendum as the least likely outcome. A general election is more likely than a second referendum. We know that the country is divided roughly down the middle – half favouring Leave and half favouring Remain. A new referendum will only frustrate those who voted to leave and waste valuable time and resources. Even if there were a second referendum, in my opinion, Leave is likely to win again. In a tweet, Robbie Gibb, Director of Communication at 10 Downing Street reminded us as much – “1.9 million Leave voters say they would now vote to Remain. But 2.4 million Remain voters would now vote to Leave. The country hasn’t changed its mind.” Remember also that the voters were told the Brexit referendum was a “once in a lifetime vote” and 3 years is not a lifetime by any stretch of the imagination. For many in the UK – whether Remainer or Brexiteer, a second vote amounts to a violation of democracy. As for GBP/USD, the UK economic data on a relative basis is getting better and the US is unlikely to raise rates until the summer given concern about the economic slowdown in the US. Therefore I see GBP/USD getting to 1.32 by June, creeping up to 1.36 or higher by September and 1.40 or higher next year. Link to the newsletter: https://www.crossbridgeconnect.com/january-2019-market-viewpoints/ --------------------------------------------------Manish Singh, CFAChief Investment OfficerCrossbridge Capital LLP9 South StreetLondon W1K 2XA

patek philippe may come up for sale?

Patek Philippe Watchmaker May Come Up for Sale SIHH speculation perhaps?  ZURICH, Switzerland — Patek Philippe, the closely held maker of $10,000-plus Calatrava watches, may be coming up for sale, according to analysts at Berenberg who cited industry talk. The 180-year-old Swiss watchmaker could fetch 7 billion to 9 billion euros ($8 billion to $10 billion), analysts led by Zuzanna Pusz wrote in a note. Patek Philippe has been owned by the Stern family for almost a century, and Thierry Stern became the company’s chairman in 2009. “It was interesting to hear in the corridors of the Geneva watch salon that a potential sale of the high-end watch brand Patek Philippe could be approaching soon,” the analysts wrote, noting that it could be just a rumor. A Patek spokeswoman declined to comment except to say deal speculation tends to occur during the annual watch fairs in Switzerland, including last week’s Geneva show. A sale of Patek Philippe would upend the watch industry and could lead to a bidding war, as it’s one of the last prize assets that hasn’t fallen into the hands of a luxury conglomerate. Swatch Group AG, which has bought up brands including Omega, and Richemont, which owns Cartier, make more than half of Swiss watches. Patek Philippe has sales of 1.5 billion francs, according to Berenberg estimates. On its website, the company says its “intention is to independently pursue the path that led to its success.” “We understand that one of the largest conglomerates in the sector would likely be interested in the asset given its currently relatively low exposure to the watch category,” the analysts wrote. Pusz wasn’t immediately available to comment further. Two years ago, family-owned Breitling was sold to private-equity owners CVC Capital Partners for more than 800 million euros. In 2014, Stern told Swiss newspaper Le Temps that the company may eventually need to leave Geneva or put itself up for sale if its tax burden wasn’t reduced. Months later, the company announced a 450 million-franc ($451 million) investment plan in the canton. Stern’s wife, Sandrine, works in design at Patek Philippe. Their children are in their teens, and Patek’s chairman has said he wouldn’t push them into the business if they didn’t want to join. By: https://www.businessoffashion.com

the henley passport index 2019

Asian Countries Dominate When It Comes to Passport Power in 2019Japan goes into the new year holding 1st place on the Henley Passport Index, with citizens enjoying visa-free/visa-on-arrival access to 190 destinations. In a further display of Asian passport power, Singapore and South Korea now sit in joint 2nd place, with access to 189 destinations around the globe. This marks a new high for South Korea, which moved up the ranking following a recent visa-on-arrival agreement with India. Germany and France remain in 3rd place going into 2019, with a visa-free/visa-on-arrival score of 188.The US and the UK continue to drop down the Henley Passport Index — which is based on authoritative data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) — and now sit in joint 6th place, with access to 185 destinations. This is a significant fall from the 1st place position that these countries held in 2015. Denmark, Finland, Italy, and Sweden now hold joint 4th place, while Spain and Luxembourg are in 5th. As they have done for much of the index’s 14-year history, Iraq and Afghanistan remain at the bottom of the ranking, with access to just 30 visa-free destinations.Turkey’s recent introduction of an online e-Visa service has resulted in some interesting changes to the overall rankings. As of October 2018, citizens of over 100 countries (including Canada, the UK, Norway, and the US) must apply for an e-Visa before they travel to Turkey, instead of being able to do so on arrival. While this specific change means that a number of countries have dropped slightly in the rankings, it does not alter the overwhelmingly positive effect of the wider global tendency towards visa-openness and mutually beneficial agreements. Historical data from the Henley Passport Index shows that in 2006, a citizen, on average, could travel to 58 destinations without needing a visa from the host nation; by the end of 2018, this number had nearly doubled to 107.Dr. Christian H. Kälin, Group Chairman of Henley & Partners and the inventor of the Passport Index concept, says this latest ranking shows that despite rising isolationist sentiment in some parts of the world, many countries remain committed to collaboration. “The general spread of open-door policies has the potential to contribute billions to the global economy, as well as create significant employment opportunities around the world. South Korea and the United Arab Emirates’ recent ascent in the rankings are further examples of what happens when countries take a proactive foreign affairs approach, an attitude which significantly benefits their citizens as well as the international community.”Countries Continue to Embrace Mutually Beneficial Migration Asian countries’ continued dominance of the Henley Passport Index reflects the extraordinary effect that international mobility and migration has had on the region. The full scope of this impact is explored in the recently launched 2019 edition of the Henley Passport Index and Global Mobility Report – a unique publication that offers cutting-edge analysis and commentary from leading scholars and professional experts on the latest trends shaping international and regional mobility patterns today.Commenting in the report, Dr. Parag Khanna, the Founder and Managing Partner of FutureMap in Singapore, notes: “China’s Thousand Talents scheme, Thailand’s entrepreneur visa, and similar initiatives from the UAE to Singapore show many states sustaining a high comfort level with mutually beneficial economic migration.”China’s steady ascent up the rankings over the past few years is a clear demonstration of this. In 2017, the country was ranked 85th, with citizens able to access just 51 destinations. Going into 2019, China sits in 69th place, with its nationals now able to access 74 countries and territories around the world. Commenting in the report, Froilan Malit, an Associate at the Gulf Labour Markets, Migration, and Population (GLMM) program and a Fellow at Centre International de Formation des Autorités et Leaders (CIFAL), says: “Overall, international migration has not only helped stabilize economic growth in Asia Pacific but enabled many labor-sending South and Southeast Asian countries to sustain strong economic growth, even in times of crisis.”As is clear from the United Arab Emirates’ continued upward trajectory, the Middle Eastern powerhouse has taken a similar approach to Asian high performers. Now holding top spot in the region at 22nd place globally on the Henley-IATA index, with its citizens able to access 164 destinations around the globe, the nation recently signed agreements with a number of countries, including Mexico, Japan, and Sierra Leone. Commenting on the UAE’s recent partnerships with African nations, Ryan Cummings, Director of Signal Risk, says: “The United Arab Emirates has demonstrated a penchant for reciprocating visa deregulation as the country aims to attract diverse skill-sets and increase the power of its own passport.”Cummings suggests that the African continent would also benefit from this more expansive approach: “Africa continues to lag behind the rest of the world. That said, it is certainly moving in the right direction in terms of enhancing visa openness. Over the past year, several African countries – notably Angola, Ethiopia, Kenya, Namibia and Senegal – relaxed visa requirements, with the intention of enhancing trade, co-operation, and security.”Looking ahead: Brexit, the US, and changing alliances The 2019 Henley Passport Index and Global Mobility Report offers fascinating insight into what the coming year might hold in terms of visa freedom and travel access. Experts anticipate that neither the US nor EU member states are in line to substantially revise their current visa policies, whereas countries in other parts of Europe (such as citizenship-by-investment newcomers Moldova and Montenegro), as well as those in Asia and the Middle East, look set to continue seeking visa-waiver agreements with diplomatic allies.A question mark remains over the ultimate impact of Brexit. While the deal hangs in the balance, it is difficult to anticipate what the ultimate ramifications will be for EU and UK citizens, as well as for EU and UK trade and co-operation. Commenting in the report on the potential impact of Britain’s changing relationship with the EU, Prof. Simone Bertoli, Professor of Economics at Université Clermont Auvergne (CERDI) in France and a Research Fellow at the Institute of Labor Economics in Germany, says: “London’s finance sector could lose a substantial part of its appeal, and other European countries (notably, France, Germany, and Ireland) could decide to strengthen policy measures to attract financial sector workers.”Finally, insights from the report show that the ever-growing trend towards visa-openness is unlikely to slow down. Overall, 2019 looks set to hold some surprises in the travel freedom space as more countries and citizens embrace the benefits of global mobility.Citizenship-by-investment countries consolidate their respective positionsAs in 2018, countries with citizenship-by-investment (CBI) programs continue to hold their strong positions. Malta, for instance, sits in 9th spot, with access to 182 destinations around the world. St. Kitts and Nevis and Antigua and Barbuda hold 27th and 28th spot respectively, while Moldova remains in a strong position at 46th place, with citizens able to access 122 countries. A recent agreement signed between St. Kitts and Nevis and Belarus, due to come into effect in the coming months, will further strengthen the St. Kitts and Nevis passport, and enhance the travel freedom of its citizens.Dr. Juerg Steffen, the CEO of Henley & Partners, says: “The enduring appeal of investment migration programs shows that more and more people are embracing alternative citizenship as the best way to access previously unimagined opportunities and improve their passport power. Additionally, it is no surprise that countries are increasingly looking to launch CBI programs, which attract talented individuals and bring enormous economic and societal benefits.”

hot spring ( onsen )

With all Japan has to offer, it clearly attracts people with an endless variety of interests. But no matter who you are and what you get up to during the day, the best way to start or end it is with a soak in the hot springs. Onsen are communal baths with natural spring water. The waters are said to contain healing properties—and even if they didn’t, relaxing in the peaceful baths with your friends and family is healing enough all on its own.

artist klimkouski kicked out of miami art show

Artist Yaraslav Klimkouski was kicked out of the Miami Art show Spectrum. On Dec. 5th, 2018, Key West based Artist Yaraslave Klimkouski was removed from the art show Spectrum in MIami during the Art Basel Miami week. Miljonet was there to see Klimkouski do his "live perforance" on his booth at Spectrum, when the situation was getting out of hand. Klimkousky was in full trance when he was painting and the spectators could see him work and putting all his passion and anger into the creative process. Paint was flying around his booth reaching the spectators and unfortunately also ruining a $1000,00 Gucci dress and it was also on the floor, walls and on the art of the surrounding galleries. The crowd went wild and was bidding on his work until the organisation asked the artist to stop because of the damage and complaints from the other galleries. Klimkouski got so angry and decided to throw paint to everyone that was around him, including the surounding gallery booths. When he decided to also paint the floor, it became too much for the organisaion and Klimkouski was arrested and removed from the exhibtion. The rest of the art week the booth of Klimkouski remained closed. His 3 years of preperation for this show was ruined in only one hour; However the artists (aka "the artist that was kicked out of Spectrum") reputation went sky high. He was the talk of the town and it definitely increased the value of his work. He was the most talked about artist in Miami. Miljonet is currently in touch with the artist in order to get a piece of artwork of the exhibition to offer for sale on Miljonet. About the Artist: In December 2012 he had his first exhibition at the artistic district of 5th Av. New York City The Artist: "Now I'm just trying to be myself and When I paint, I try to project myself onto the canvas – nothing fake, just the trut"h. "I try to project my life, my emotions, my mind, creating a subjective but true vision of reality and feelings." "My paintings are studies in contrasts. They take the form of “arguments” – struggles between my spiritual side and what I call the “side of true existence.” I never try to ignore the darker side of my unconscious mind – I am unafraid to face, express and challenge my own imperfections, weaknesses and moral destitution in my art, with the aim of better understanding myself and society"

rene magritte set a record for his work

Belgian surrealist Rene Magritte set a record for his work at a Sotheby's auction in New York. New York: A painting by Rene Magritte sold for $26.8 million Monday at a Sotheby's auction in New York, setting a record for a work by the Belgian surrealist.The painting entitled "Le principe du plaisir" topped the price fetched by "La corde sensible", which was sold in February 2017 in London for $17.9 million.Sotheby's had estimated the painting sold Monday as being worth 15 to 20 million dollars. It said seven collectors -- an unusually high number -- bid for it.Other paintings on offer on the second night of the autumn art auctions in New York also surpassed their estimated value."Improvisation on Mahogany" by Russian-born Wassily Kandinsky, fetched $24.2 million, compared to its pre-sale estimate of 15-20 million dollars.A painting that was supposed to be one of the main attractions of the auction failed to lure a buyer.It was Marsden Hartley's "Pre-War Pageant", considered to be one of the first totally abstract works in the history of American art.It was estimated at $30 million, nearly five times the record for that US painter.On Sunday, the Vincent Van Gogh Painting "Coin de jardin avec papillons", estimated at $40 million, went begging at a Christie's auction of Impressionist and Modern art.

audemars piguet will present albedo

AUDEMARS PIGUET WILL PRESENT ALBEDO— A NEW ARTWORK BY TOMÁS SARACENO FOR AEROCENE—AT ART BASEL MIAMI BEACH 19 October 2018: Audemars Piguet is delighted to announce a new artwork imagined by Berlin-based artist Tomás Saraceno for Aerocene. His sustainable, site-specific installation Albedo will be unveiled at Art Basel in Miami Beach on the oceanfront sandlot across from Collins Park, on December 5–9, 2018.  Albedo is a large-scale temporal pavilion developed by Saraceno, comprised of approximately 40 reflective, out-turned umbrellas. Together, the parabolic structures create a large hemispherical sundial on the Miami Beach oceanfront. Seen from above, these experimental structures form an impressive geometric constellation, transforming the usual shielding purpose of umbrellas into a community act to protect the thermodynamic balance of the Earth. The solar energy harnessed is used to lift Aerocene’s iconic aerosolar sculpture, the Aerocene Explorer, into the air. These floating sculptures imagine a new aerial infrastructure that demonstrates the possibilities of an ethical, fossil-fuel-free movement in the atmosphere, while challenging and redefining a global right to mobility.  Saraceno’s Albedo resonates strongly with Audemars Piguet’s long-term commitment to environmental sustainability. Albedo stems from Saraceno’s long-standing vision of Aerocene, an interdisciplinary artistic and scientific endeavour visualising ethical collaborations with the environment, embodying newly developed aerosolar technology devised by the multidisciplinary collaborators and scientists of the Aerocene community, supported by the Aerocene Foundation. Since 1992, the Audemars Piguet Foundation has been dedicated to the cause of worldwide forest conservation through environmental protection and youth awareness-raising programmes organised with local communities. In this way, the driving concerns of Saraceno’s aerosolar investigations resonate with the aims of the Audemars Piguet.  Foundation, as Tomás Saraceno shared: “Our mutual interest in preserving our planet for future generations makes our collaboration in Miami Beach all the more meaningful.”  Albedo by Tomás Saraceno for Aerocene is separate from Audemars Piguet’s Art Commissions (the most recent edition of which was presented earlier this year at Art Basel in Switzerland). However, Albedo bears a strong kinship with other artistic projects raising ecological awareness commissioned by Audemars Piguet and presented at Art Basel Miami Beach, including the 2017 Audemars Piguet Art Commission Slow-Moving Luminaries by Lars Jan, and Theo Jansen’s 2014 Strandbeests, an artistic project in collaboration with the Peabody Essex Museum. Similar to Albedo, these installations investigated fundamental questions about our shared social and ecological future in the form of interactive, experiential, participatory installations marked by a high degree of technological complexity and precision. The Miami Beach oceanfront is, therefore, an inspirational venue to share Albedo with an international public to probe issues of urgent historic and cosmic relevance, and move towards a new Epoch of post-extractivism, the Aerocene.  Albedo is highly interactive and has been developed with specific sustainable functions. Visitors are invited to participate in this immersive artwork that hosts performative experiments in tune with Miami Beach’s usually sunny December weather, including community solar cooking—a first within an Aerocene project, which represents a new visionary method of communicating the intrinsic multifunctionality of solar energy. Aerocene Explorer backpacks will also be available for visitors to fly on Miami Beach. A series of talks presented by Saraceno, the Aerocene community, and Audemars Piguet will be hosted throughout the week. Additional details on all programming is forthcoming.  As Olivier Audemars, Vice President of the Board of Directors, commented: “When the opportunity to support Tomás in creating a new artwork presented itself, we knew we had to bring his vision to life. Tomás is a master craftsman and similar to how we view ourselves at Audemars Piguet. A term like ‘artist’ doesn’t necessarily encapsulate the complexity of his work or vision. He is also a scientist, master connector and champion of the environment. The artwork in Miami Beach this December will take the art projects Audemars Piguet has directly championed to a new height.”  In parallel with the presentation of Albedo in Miami Beach, a major solo exhibition of Saraceno’s work, ON AIR, is taking place at the Palais de Tokyo (Oct 17, 2018 – Jan 6, 2019), and focuses his ongoing innovative research on the environment and cosmos. The exhibition includes a prototype for Albedo as well as detailing on the work of the Aerocene Foundation within the installation.
