Unexpected Layers of Glass Added to Stones and Books by Ramon Todo

Oooh, I love this kind of weird materiality.

I just got turned onto Hella Jongerius’s work, too, and while not everything she does works for me, I think in her best moments there’s a similar sort of fascinating interplay of materials:

I’m especially attracted to items with varying levels of translucency (not surprising, given my own work). There’s something about the density of the rock in Todo’s work paired with the clarity of the glass that really appeals to me. It feels very sci-fi.

A church turned into a library

In Pátzcuaro, Michoacán, the Ex Convento de San Agustín is now the Gertrudis Bocanegra Public Library.

The church, built in 1576 by Augustinian friars, functioned as a convent until around 1850. After that the building was in charge of the Masons, the state of Michoacán government and the municipal government until it was abandoned.

In 1936, president Lázaro Cárdenas instructed to use the building for the Gertrudis Bocanegra Public Library.

The place where the altar used to be is occupied by a beautiful mural made by the talented and renowned architect and painter Juan O’Gorman

The mural, signed in 1942, tells the story of Michoacán from  the Purépechas and their dominion, to Independence , through Vasco de Quiroga and a clear reference to Thomas More's Utopia, idea which inspired Vasco de Quiroga’s work in Michoacán.
