About This Image

Edward Glaeser, the Harvard Professor and author of the book, “Triumph Of The City” calls the city “mankind’s greatest invention”.

Human progress happens as a result of what Matt Ridley calls, “Ideas having sex”. And cities are where ideas seem to do the most copulating.

All those people from different backgrounds, living on top of each other, bumping into each other all day long, life becoming one huge mashup.

In gapingvoid’s day job of helping companies think more about creativity and innovation, the research we do these days is making us spend a lot  more time reading up on cities, urban planning, architecture, innovation clusters etc. and how they all will evolve over the next half century. It’s a growing trend I’m noticing more and more.

Talent wants to mate with other talent, literally and metaphorically. That’s why young people head for the big city the minute they finish their studies. They want to get action, by being part of the action, and vice-versa.

So when you think of cities, from now on, don’t just think about bar, restaurants, apartments, offices, museums and shopping. Think of them as crucibles of ideas, think of them as one big ol’ ideas orgy.

Talent Makes The City

A Word on Framing - Or, why you should let us do it for you:

Having spent your hard earned cash on a beautiful piece of art we strongly recommend professional framing.

Our limited edition giclée prints and serigraphs are printed on the best archival paper available. It is designed to last a very, very long time. We've seen clients who have taken both routes; inexpensive poster frames, which will ensure that the print will not survive the fullness of time, and top end, proper museum type framing.

We have contracted with a local framer, so that you can get a really high quality professionally framed print for probably half of what your frame shop would charge.

We frame our giclée prints using a high quality mat between the print and the plexiglass. For our larger serigraphs we make shadow box frames so that the artwork is set back from the UV plexiglass, and the artwork is floating, 'hinged' to a back board that will make it stand out and look amazing. The moldings we offer are 1" 5/8 (4.25cm) minimalist sleek black or white matte lacquered wood.

Special framing requests are welcome. Questions? email us at art@gapingvoid.com
