Our new global online open-call BEOPENinRGB is open for submissions! We invite you to go back to the basics of colour photography and videography and find inspiration for your future creative works. The RGB colour model was developed based on the theories of trichromatic color vision that first appeared mid-19th century. Already in 1861, the first ever permanent colour photograph was taken by J.C. Maxwell using three filters, specifically red, green, and violet-blue. Share your visuals centered around the simple palette of red, green and blue on Instagram, and get a chance to win€300! The entries are open till November 30, 2018. Don’t forget to add the #BEOPENinRGB hashtag to your post for everyone to see it!

Tactical urbanism means making small-scale, temporary improvements to the built environment. Projects are often low-cost, temporary and demonstrative in that they show how urban environments can be improved, rather than supplying a finished solution. This approach can be hugely beneficial to urban areas, particularly those built many years ago and are hugely different – not only to the modern aesthetic but also today’s understanding of how urban communities are created and nurtured. Here, we bring you a selection of our favourite creative, Tactical Urban projects.

Pop Art is now a constant presence in our culture. However, the movement only really emerged in 1950s America and the UK, developing more in the 1960s with artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein who led a new breed of artists in revolt against the accepted art and cultural norms of the time. For a much more detailed explanation and to see some fantastic examples of Pop Art check out the Tate, while this feature explores Pop Art in product design.
Occasionally we like to bring you artworks with more than a passing nod to nature and this piece takes a closer look at art that pays homage to the tree.
