Fantastic cinematography can make a film unforgettable. When done well, it’s like every still frame is a work of art. Color plays a vital role in this, and a cinematographer’s choices set the mood of a scene. Graphic designer Ruby Radulescu demonstrates the importance of a movie’s color spectrum in a fascinating series called Movies in Color. The premise is simple: she creates detailed color palettes based on a frame of a famous film.
What a wonderful gift! To celebrate Tel Aviv’s 100th anniversary, the city of Brussels, Belgium, sent 500,000 dahlias to Tel-Aviv so that they could arrange a temporary flower carpet. In addition, a Belgian team of experts were flown in with the flowers to oversee the 100 volunteers who helped assemble it! Designed by Israeli artist Adi Yekutieli, the installation took inspiration from tiles and murals discovered in the homes of several of Tel Aviv’s founding families.
Covering slightly more than a third of an acre, the dahlias were grown especially for the Tel Aviv celebration. It is scheduled to remain on display through the night of September 17.
