In this video we make six stops around the state of Ohio including two castles, a blacksmith, a museum, and a couple of medieval named places like White Castle and Knights Inn.
Ohio is a beautiful state with lots of flat green landscape. It is unpresupposing and very interesting. Of special note in this video is that we spend a little bit of time with Vincent Krava of Dragon’s Head Forge in West Farmington Ohio. And in an upcoming video he shows us how to make something called a Pineapple Twist. That’s a great blacksmithing tutorial.
What we visit in this video:
Dragon’s Head Forge – Vincent Krava, Pineapple Twist
Cleveland Museum of Art – Western Medieval Art
A Knight’s Inn (Motel)
Squire’s Castle just outside of Cleveland
Loveland Castle – Outside of Cincinnati
Special Thanks to:
Vincent Krava of Dragon’s Head Forge
Spencer Hill for his great drone footage of Squire’s Castle

Birmingham Municipal Bank - Brum's Hidden Spaces
Birmingham Municipal Bank was launched by the local authority in 1916 to enable ordinary people to save their wages and to support the war effort. It was placed on a statutory footing in 1919 and the new headquarters building was opened in 1933. Designed by Thomas Cecil Howitt, the architect of Baskerville House, which faces the bank on Centenary Square. The bank was subsumed into the TSB in 1976 and the headquarters building was closed in 1996. Still awaiting redevelopment, Birmingham Municipal Bank is now used for arts events and as a filming location.
This film shows an art exhibition by Shun Ito, hosted in the bank as part of the International Dance Festival Birmingham
The bank is shown in context on Broad Street Birmingham and the inside tour includes the very striking Art Deco bank vault. Archive images are courtesy - please visit this website for a comprehensive history of the bank.
The film is accompanied by Al Bowlly singing ‘Oceans of Time’, recorded the year the bank headquarters was opened in 1933.

A Walk Through The National Railway Museum, York, England
The National Railway Museum is a museum in York forming part of the British Science Museum Group of National Museums and telling the story of rail transport in Britain and its impact on society. It has won many awards, including the European Museum of the Year Award in 2001. It is the home of the national collection of historically significant railway vehicles, as well as a collection of other artefacts and both written and pictorial records.
The National Railway Museum in York displays a collection of over 100 locomotives and nearly 300 other items of rolling stock, virtually all of which either ran on the railways of Great Britain or were built there. Also on the 20 acres site are many hundreds of thousands of other items and records of social, technical, artistic and historical interest, exhibited mostly in three large halls of a former motive power depot next to the East Coast Main Line, near York railway station. It is the largest museum of its type in Britain, attracting 727,000 visitors during the 2014/15 financial year (the largest in the world in terms of floor area of exhibition buildings is La Cité du Train in the French town of Mulhouse, although this attracts far fewer visitors than the National Railway Museum).
The National Railway Museum was established on its present site, the former York North locomotive depot, in 1975, when it took over the former British Railways collection located in Clapham and the York Railway Museum located off Queen Street, immediately to the south east of the railway station; since then, the collection has continued to grow.
There are approximately 280 rail vehicles in the National Collection, with around 100 being at York at any one time and the remainder divided between Locomotion at Shildon and other museums and heritage railways. The earliest are wagonway vehicles of about 1815. The permanent display includes Palaces on Wheels, a collection of Royal Train saloons from Queen Victoria's early trains through to those used by Queen Elizabeth II up to the 1970s, among them some of the first rail vehicles to be set aside for preservation. Other key exhibits normally to be seen at York include the 1846 Furness Railway No. 3 Coppernob locomotive, and the more modern express passenger steam locomotives London and North Eastern Railway Class A3 No. 4472 Flying Scotsman (added to the collection in 2004), its streamlined sister Class A4 No. 4468 Mallard and London, Midland and Scottish Railway Princess Coronation Class No. 6229 Duchess of Hamilton. Flying Scotsman is among the exhibits intended for operation on the National Rail network from time to time.

July 11th - August 17th, 2013
Opening: July 11th 06:00 PM - 09:00 PM
Jack Shainman Gallery is pleased to announce the collaborative project
Question Bridge: Black Males and a selection of works by Hank Willis Thomas
that will include Zero Hour from the Wayfarer series and new sculptural pieces
that employ photographs, clothing, wood and plexiglas to explore complex
narratives about race, history and visual culture.
Question Bridge: Black Males is a project that explores critical and challenging
issues within the African American male community by instigating a transmedia
conversation among black men from a range of geographic, economic,
generational, educational and social strata. The innovative video installation
begins a dialogue that is continued through special community events across
the country, a curriculum offered to high schools, a website and social media
engagement. Question Bridge aims to provide a forum for necessary, honest
expression and healing dialogue on themes that divide, unite and puzzle Black
males today in the United States. Questions and separately filmed answers are
then interwoven to create a stream-of-consciousness megalogue around
issues such as family, love, interracial relationships, community, education,
violence and the past and future of Black men in American society. From these
exchanges emerge surprising insights and new possibilities for witnessing our
Question Bridge: Black Males is a portal to an inner realm of Black male
consciousness. This five-channel video installation presents an intimate
exchange between over 150 Black men from 12 different cities in America.
These diverse, everyday individuals ask and answer questions that are political,
humorous, painful and poignant. The installation is designed to invite visitors
into a space where they can experience an intimate exchange between the
subjects of the project. Question Bridge creates a platform for participants to
represent and redefine black male identity in America.
Question Bridge: Black Males was created by Chris Johnson, Hank Willis Thomas,
Bayeté Ross Smith and Kamal Sinclair. The Executive Producers are Delroy
Lindo, Deborah Willis and Jesse Williams. It is a fiscally sponsored project of the
Bay Area Video Coalition (a 501c3 not-for-profit organization) and supported
in part by a grant from the Open Society Institute: Campaign for Black Male
Achievement, The California Endowment, The Tribeca Film Institute, The LEF
Foundation, The Center for Cultural Innovation and the California College of the
Arts. The project was supported by the Sundance Institute's New Frontier Story
Hank Willis Thomas lives and works in New York City. He has exhibited
extensively throughout the United States and internationally. The Cleveland
Museum of Art will open a solo show on the 20th of October, 2013 which will
run through the 9th of March, 2014. The exhibition will be on view

Driving Downtown - Bellevue 4K - Seattle USA
Driving Downtown - Bellevue Washington USA - Season 1 Episode 18.
Starting Point: NE 8th St .
Bellevue is a city in the Eastside region of King County, Washington, United States, across Lake Washington from Seattle. As Seattle's largest suburb, Bellevue has variously been characterized as an edge city, a boomburb, or satellite city. The city had a population of 122,363 at the 2010 census.
Prior to 2008, downtown Bellevue underwent rapid change, with many high rise projects under construction, and was relatively unaffected by the economic downturn. It is currently the second largest city center in Washington state with over 35,000 employees and 5,000 residents. Based on per capita income, Bellevue is the 6th wealthiest of 522 communities in the state of Washington. In 2008, Bellevue was named number 1 in CNNMoney's list of the best places to live and launch a business, and in 2010 was again ranked as the 4th best place to live in America. The name Bellevue is French for beautiful view. In 2014, Bellevue was ranked as the 2nd best place to live by USA Today.
Recurring cultural events
Bellevue is the site of the popular annual Bellevue Arts and Crafts Fair (originally Pacific Northwest Arts and Crafts Fair), held since 1947 at the end of July. The biennial Bellevue Sculpture Exhibition draws thousands of visitors to the Downtown Park to view up to 46 three-dimensional artworks from artists around the country. In celebration of its strawberry farming history, Bellevue holds an annual Strawberry Festival. The Bellevue 24-Hour Relay has also been hosted every July in Bellevue Downtown Park.
Places of interest
The Bellevue Arts Museum first opened in 1975, then moved to Bellevue Square in 1983. In 2001, the museum moved into its own building, designed by Steven Holl. The museum subsequently ran into financial difficulties and was forced to close to the public in 2003. After a lengthy fundraising campaign, a remodel, and a new mission to become a national center for the fine art of craft and design, the museum reopened on June 18, 2005 with an exhibition of teapots. The Rosalie Whyel Museum of Doll Art - now closed - contained one of the largest doll collections in the world—more than a thousand dolls—displayed on two floors of a Victorian-style building. The KidsQuest Children's Museum is located in Marketplace @ Factoria. The museum's primary visitors are mothers and care givers with children from pre-crawlers to 12 years of age. Its 10,000-square-foot (930 m2) space houses play and discovery areas, exhibits, offices, educational activities and classroom space. Near Interstate 405 is Meydenbauer Center, a convention center that brings corporate meetings and charity events to the downtown area. Meydenbauer also includes a 410-seat theater which attracts operas, ballets, and orchestral performances.
Sports and recreation
Since the 1970s, the city has taken an active role in ensuring that its commercial development does not overwhelm its natural land and water resources. Today, the Bellevue Parks and Community Services Department manages more than 2,500 acres (10 km2) of parks and open spaces, including the Downtown Park and the Bellevue Botanical Garden, as well as several playgrounds, beach parks, and trails. More than 5,500 Bellevue residents participate in volunteer activities through this department annually.
Bellevue was home to the American Basketball Association team, the Bellevue Blackhawks. The Blackhawks in 2005, despite being ranked 13th in the league, made it to the championship game in front of 15,000 fans in Little Rock, Arkansas. The team has been inactive since 2006.
NEW TILT By Jenny Holzer, New York
New Tilt At Art Basel Miami Beach. Jenny Holzer was born in Gallipolis, Ohio, in 1950. She received a BA from Ohio University in Athens (1972); an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence (1977); and honorary doctorates from the University of Ohio (1993), the Rhode Island School of Design (2003), and New School University, New York (2005).
Whether questioning consumerist impulses, describing torture, or lamenting death and disease, Jenny Holzer's use of language provokes a response in the viewer. While her subversive work often blends in among advertisements in public space, its arresting content violates expectations. Holzer's texts—such as the aphorisms Abuse of power comes as no surprise and Protect me from what I want—have appeared on posters and condoms, and as electronic LED signs and projections of xenon light.
Holzer's recent use of text ranges from silk-screened paintings of declassified government memoranda detailing prisoner abuse to poetry and prose in a sixty-five-foot-wide wall of light in the lobby of 7 World Trade Center, New York. She has received many awards, including the Golden Lion from the Venice Biennale (1990); the Skowhegan Medal (1994); and the Diploma of Chevalier (2000) from the French government.
Major exhibitions include Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin (2001); Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston (1997); Dia Art Foundation, New York (1989); and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (1989). Since 1996, Holzer has organized public light projections in cities worldwide. She was the first woman to represent the United States in the Venice Biennale (1990). Jenny Holzer lives and works in Hoosick Falls, New York.
