Singularity Black joins the battle for the “world’s blackest black”, and is available to all artists

Jason-chase-singularity-black-paint-worlds-blackest-black-itsnicethat-list-black-iron-ursa

In the latest installment to the “world’s blackest black” paint saga, a new product has joined the battle but, unlike the controversial Vantablack, any artist can use it. Singularity Black has been invented by a Massachusetts manufacturer called NanoLab, and is claimed to have the capacity to absorb almost all light, making any object painted with it appear flat.

Throwing a spanner in the works of Anish Kapoor’s exclusive rights to the other “blackest black” Vantablack, and the ongoing debate with artist Stuart Semple – who took issue with the lack of democracy in this trademark and created “the pinkest pink” for everyone but Anish to use – the company has released Singularity Black as a paint. This can be used by anyone, and has been premiered by Boston artist Jason Chase, reports Hyperallergic, in a piece named Black Iron Ursa. The artwork depicting a very black gummy bear on a rainbow-coloured wheel, will be on show at various exhibitions, where the artist and NanoLab scientists will be present.

The paint can be applied with a brush or spray gun and was developed as part of research for Nasa exploring materials that can suppress glare on equipment for space.

Jurgen-bay-misc-itsnicethat-list Work / Miscellaneous “The field is stretching itself bigger and bigger” - Jurgen Bey on design education and infinite possibility
“I’ve always been teaching and a part of education,” comments Dutch designer Jurgen Bey. “It’s the common place, it’s where all knowledge is shared. And it’s also the place where the future always exists. If you have students no matter how bad it goes with life or reality.” Such tenacious optimism for the future has illuminated Jurgen’s dual career as an influential designer and educator. Jurgen leads Studio Makkink & Bey in Rotterdam which works in applied art and public space projects, and he is also the director of the Sandberg Institute, the postgraduate program of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam.
Jordy-van-den-nieuwendijk_colette_itsnicethat_list Features / Miscellaneous Colette, the trailblazer: creatives pay tribute to the iconic Parisian store and its legacy

Founded in 1997 by Colette Roussaux, cult Parisian store Colette has – in its two decade lifetime – established itself as one of the world’s most influential hubs for compelling, cutting-edge fashion and design. With Colette’s daughter Sarah Andelman working as creative director it also became a leading light in illustration and graphic art, giving a platform to the creative industry’s renowned innovators and creators. So, when last week the store posted a statement on Instagram saying “all good things must come to an end” and it would be closing its doors on 20 December 2017, there was an outpouring of love, support and reminiscences from across the industry.

Kate_moross_uotu_its_nice_that_li Work / Miscellaneous “I hate the homogenisation of design” – Kate Moross on how her non-binary identity influences her work

“I always say that I don’t have big ideas, I just have lots of little ones that fill the same amount of time,” explains London artist Kate Moross. “I much prefer to take things a little bit at a time and change things that way. I think change is lots of small steps, not necessarily always the big things.” This small-idea ethos has helped Kate forge a genre-defying career as a graphic artist: she founded the London design agency Studio Moross in 2012, started the vinyl label Isomorph Records, and penned the DIY guide Make Your Own Luck. Her work has spanned from music videos to designing the tour visuals for One Direction. “I very much don’t conform to what most people think of what a graphic designer would be,” Kate confesses.

00_aphex_twin_it's_nice_that_list Features / Miscellaneous “It’s a psychological overload”: Weirdcore on creating Aphex Twin’s live visuals

The mystery that surrounds Aphex Twin is like no other, outside and within electronic music, a genre he has shaped over the past 20 years. A man of 18 different pseudonyms, the rumours that surround Richard D. James are absurd but often true. It is difficult to name another artist who encourages such hearsay as to whether he lives in a box structure on the Elephant and Castle roundabout, when he was actually living in abandoned bank office. He’s a musician who announces upcoming albums via blimps flying over London or by hiding a track list in a deep web server, an innovator across all aspects of his creative output. It comes as no surprise, the visuals of Aphex Twin have evolved with the increased sophistication of technology.
