British artist Fiona Banner explores the limits and possibilities of language in text-based drawings, sculptures and installations. Best known for her laborious, handwritten descriptions of war films and epics such as Lawrence of Arabia, Banner has also used the art-historical genre of the nude to explore issues of violence, vulnerability and voyeurism; and has used sculptures of punctuation to investigate breakdowns and gaps in communication. – Excerpt from Artinfo interview, 2006.

Last night I went to the Stefan Sagmeister talk here in Denver hosted by AIGA. World famous designer from Austria. The series of talks he’s giving are promoting his new book Things I Have Learned In My Life So Far.

This particular video is actually from a lecture he gave at TED, and has more to do with design and happiness, but he does go into the beginnings of this book towards the end.

Good article on the book from Creative Review here.
