first_imgJun 15, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – The H5N1 strain of avian influenza has infected a person in Indonesia, authorities confirmed today, marking the spread of the disease among people to a fourth nation.A poultry worker who was among 81 people tested for avian flu in Indonesia last March has tested positive in two rounds of testing conducted in Hong Kong, the Washington Post reported today. It is the first known case of avian flu among Indonesians. Other countries with human cases of avian flu since 2003 are Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam.Indonesia has suffered H5N1 outbreaks in poultry intermittently since 2003, but authorities previously said the strain differed from that in other countries in that it wasn’t infecting people, the newspaper said. Scientific details about the strain were not available today.The poultry worker had a relatively low concentration of antibodies to H5N1 and has shown no symptoms of illness, authorities told the newspaper.The same cannot be said for another half-dozen people in Vietnam who have been hospitalized with avian flu in the past week, according to Vietnamese newspapers and the Associated Press (AP) and Reuters news services. All six patients remain at the National Institute for Clinical Research of Tropical Medicine in Hanoi, according to the Tuoi Tre newspaper in Vietnam.All six people are from northern Vietnam, which has continued to generate human cases since mid-December 2004. Five of them are in stable condition, the AP reported. Most of the avian flu patients have been found to have had contact with infected birds, although the specter of human-to-human transmission still hovers. A physician who had been in contact with the current group of patients has developed a fever and is suspected of being infected.The World Health Organization (WHO) yesterday announced an updated case count for Vietnam, adding three more human cases that occurred in May. These six cases appear to be new, as they were all diagnosed in the past week, the AP said.last_img read more

The story behind the visual identity of the House of Art Arsen, a new great cultural and creative story of Šibenik

first_imgThe author duo believes that every visual identity must largely reflect space and what happens in it, and that it is inconceivable that space, whether public or private, is not visually thought out and connected to what it represents. During the process of working on the solution, it became clear what message they want to convey with a visual identity – In this case, Arsen is an artist and educator who attracts the audience to himself, and the space that bears his name has an open door for everyone.. With the completion of the renovation of the former Odeon cinema hall and its transformation into a new city public space intended for music and stage events, cinema screenings, theater performances, exhibitions and conferences, Šibenik got a new excellent quality space that will surely breathe new rhythm into the city. After the space was renamed at the beginning of the year – Arsen House of Art, Šibenik Fortress of Culture (which was given the management of the space) announced a call for a visual identity whose recognizability, originality and modernity will reflect the purpose of the space and program content. towards customers, partners and the public. According to the Šibenik Fortress of Culture, the work of the author’s team was selected from as many as 33 applicants Plac Studio. Behind the name are two creatives from Zagreb – Roko Jurjević and Ivan Klanac – better known to most as Roko and Klanac. JU Tvrđava kulture Šibenik is involved in the completion of the adaptation project together with the city, and the Institution is also entrusted with the future management of the renovated hall. It is the Šibenik Fortress of Culture that has proposed a name that pays tribute to one of the greatest artists of recent Croatian history: academic musician, individual and intellectual, composer, singer-songwriter, painter, arranger, translator, silent craftsman and poet of general practice, Šibenik musician and artistic genius – Arsen Dedić This is exactly what the biggest challenge in the project is related to – finding a creative solution that would meet the character and work of Arsen Dedić and a multimedia gathering space, or merging the tradition represented by Arsen and the future of space. We perceive Šibenik as a city rich in history, culture and, above all, inspiring people, the authors point out and add “We started a discussion about what the Arsen House of Art is and what kind of identity could be developed. We presented the project task to a friend and fellow designer Aleksandar Obrenović, with whom we started further elaboration. We were guided by proposing a quality and applicable solution and in some way paying tribute to Arsen and the people of Šibenik, whom he represented through his artistic work. “center_img Photo: Šibenik Fortress of Culture “We are aware of the greatness of the character and work of Arsen Dedić, the influence he had on Šibenik, Croatia and even the world. To this day, our parents keep his records and tapes, and one of us even had a chance to meet him. We really researched everything, from Arsen’s music and poetry, his first designed single, to the history of Šibenik and the former Odeon cinema. Somewhere in the middle, when we already had the concept sketches, we reached for the project task again to match the concept to the needs.. At the end of the process, we reviewed everything we had prepared and finalized only what we were completely satisfied with and what we think met all the criteria. And what we have chosen you have the opportunity to see in the final solution”” Say Roko Jurjevic and Ivan Klanac. The authors of the paper also emphasized that the process always begins with a conversation that very quickly grows into ideas that are later transferred to paper (or screen) and continue to grow and develop. As the design process is complex and different for everyone, they point out that Arsen’s music accompanied them through this one, and it took about a month from idea to realization. Finally, the authors emphasize how design essentially problem solving so it is critically observed that way. “Has a particular design solved the problem of visibility and brand recognition as such? If, if you have noticed and remembered it, the problem has been solved and the designer has done his task properly together with the client” The intention of the House of Art Arsen is to gather, to be a place for performances, conferences and workshops, and the visual code that emphasizes openness should help to become a recognizable place in Šibenik, but also in Croatia.last_img read more
