Jean Hugo was born in Paris on this day in 1894. Great-grandson of author Victor Hugo, he was a painter, illustrator, and theatre designer whose work brought him into contact with some of the most influential figures of 20th century art: Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, Erik Satie, Marcel Proust, and many more. In addition to avant-garde theatre, he notably designed the costumes and sets for Carl Dreyer’s film “The Passion of Joan of Arc.” His personal work was modest in scale and dream-like in tone, mingling the influences of Henri Rousseau, Nicolas Poussin, and the Italian Primitives. He produced quiet, light-filled landscapes and scenes of magical realism like this small tempera painting from 1931. 🎨 Jean Hugo. The Flight (Beginning of the End of the World), 1931

    A better life through augmented reality? Really!
    What do the Franklin Institute, Ikea North America Services, QVC, and the Fringe Fest have in common? They're betting on augmented reality - a commingling of the real world we live in with computer-generated imagery that makes the scene better (or weirder) for consumers.

New research suggests that winemaking may have gotten its start at least eight thousand years ago. http://n.pr/2jqIyba

    Georgian Jars Hold 8,000-Year-Old Winemaking Clues
    Anthropologist Patrick McGovern, at the University of Pennsylvania, has been pursuing the origins of wine for many years, and that search took him to the mountainous areas east of the Black Sea, in what is today Georgia, Armenia, and Iran. "Everything pointed to that region as the area to investigate," he says.
