 The Daniel Langlois Foundation announces its new and revised programs

After more than a year of evaluation, consultation and reflection, the Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science, and Technology announces the progressive resumption of its programs, effective September 2005. The mandate of the Foundation has not changed at all; its purpose is to further artistic and scientific knowledge by fostering the meeting of art and science in the field of technologies. The Foundation seeks to nurture a critical awareness of technology's implications for human beings and their natural and cultural environments and to promote the exploration of aesthetics suited to environments shaped by human beings.


 Eisenstein's Early Drawings - Sketchbook 1914

It is with great pleasure that the Daniel Langlois Foundation presents an Internet project dedicated to an early sketchbook of Sergei M. Eisenstein (1898-1948), dating from 1914 when the artist was 16 years old. Eisenstein specialist, Oksana Bulgakowa comments on the sketches and draws from her biography of Eisenstein to help us understand the familial, social and political environment in which he grew up and developed as an artist. The visual material also includes a wide variety of documents: drawings, plans, notes, videos, photographs and reproductions of paintings. To fully appreciate this project, it is best to use a high-speed Internet connection and a recent computer. [More...]
