November 8, 2016: Pixsweet ia an online platform that allows you to customize edibles on demand was launched last week. Owner, Janne Kyttanen, a Finnish conceptual artist known for his work with 3D printing walked into the US presidential elections by creating ice popsicles representing the presidential competitors.

Pixsweet depicts the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in form but Donald Trump, the Republican candidate is represented by a chunk of excrement. The symbols of the parties, a donkey and an elephant have also been shaped into iced pops, mentioned dezeen.com.

The platform is dedicated to the making customized food designs fast and the ones that are on demand, but the only edibles under production currently are ice pops but the company may broaden its production in the future.

Kyttanen left the 3D printing industry in early 2016 to put up WTFVC, his own venture capital fund. Pixsweet is the first startup under it, mentioned the report.

Kyttanen told Dezeen that the focus of WTFVC is on designing new companies as fast as designing products.

NewsGram brings to you top news around the world today.

A custom search engine called “3D Munchifier” is used to make the popsicles. It hunts the internet for relevant images for the search terms entered by the user.

A 3D structure is made by detecting the object and the object’s edges. From here, the design is sent into the production line, which takes 1.3 seconds to complete the process to make a mould. The mould is then packaged and the desired flavor is injected into it. After sealing and labelling, the popsicle is ready for shipping.

Kytannen’s earlier work comprises mainly of 3D printing but the process followed by Pixsweet does not use 3D printing at all.

The designer told Dezeen that Pixsweet has solved most of the problems with 3D printed food items which is expensive, inconvenient for distribution and very slow to produce.

These popsicles were created prior to the US elections, that is taking place today and the designer is planning to hand out these lollies with his team at polling stations in Los Angeles where he is currently based.

The satirical works of many artists about the political views of Trump show that the artist community does not like the candidate very much.

Music has long helped people express their emotions and connect with one another. Over the years, medical studies have proved that music has many health benefits. They range from facilitating regular breathing and lifting mood to improving emotional function and motor control. VOA

Sitar player Purbayan Chatterjee, known for his fusion work with Western and Indian classical music, feels that the art form is very much like food and the Indian classical music is not as rigid as it is thought to be.

For Purbayan, 43, whose sitar playing is rooted in the Senia Maihar gharana’s blend of dhrupad and khayal, Indian classical music is ever-evolving.

“Indian classical music can be compared to a Rubik’s cube made of a gelatinous matrix. There’s a complex structure which sits in the midst of infinite elasticity. Hindustani classical music itself is an amalgam of ancient dhrupad and Persian elements,” Chatterjee told IANS in an email interview.

A disciple of his father Parthapratim Chatterjee, the musician has performed as part of the groups Shastriya Syndicate and Stringstruck.

He also calls himself “truly privileged and humbled” because the instrument of sitar — that has been in the hands of legendary artistes like Pt. Ravishankar, Pt. Nikhil Banerjee and Ustad Vilayat Khan — has chosen him.

“The sitar is my voice. It is an extension of my limbs.”

Asked about the World Music Day that fell on June 21, the young musician said that he’d love to have it pronounced “World-Music Day” since the music of the entire world has only three elements — melody, rhythm and harmony.

“The more we respect and recognise that, the more the boundaries will disappear,” he explained.

As far as his future projects are concerned, Purbayan said: “I am currently working on expanding my classical repertoire to include lesser-heard ragas in instrumental music like Lalita-Gauri. I am also recording and shooting in 4K compositions of great masters like Ustad Ali Akbar Khansahib and Pt Nikhil Banerjee.

“Also being put up on my YouTube channel are some collaborations with whiz-kids of today, like Rhythm Shaw, Shikharnaad Qureshi, Jazim Sharma, Sumedha karmahe, Pratibha Singh Baghel, Rickraj and also with Gayathri — my wife who’s a very versatile artist”.

The Kolkata-based instrumentalist, who is also a vocalist and has performed in duet with music director Shankar Mahadevan, was set to perform in an HCL Concert here on Friday, alongside musical artistes Rakesh Chaurasia, Fazal Qureshi and Gino Banks.

Answering a question about his taste in fusion music, Purbayan likened music to food. “As a citizen of a rapidly shrinking global village, one constantly craves new flavours and aromas.
