Publisher: Routledge
Published Date: 2002-01-04
Categories: Social Science
Chaos and complexity are the new buzz words in both science and contemporary society. The ideas they represent have enormous implications for the way we understand and engage with the world. Complexity Theory and the Social Sciences introduces students to the central ideas which surround the chaos/complexity theories. It discusses key concepts before using them as a way of investigating the nature of social research. By applying them to such familiar topics as urban studies, education and health, David Byrne allows readers new to the subject to appreciate the contribution which complexity theory can make to social research and to illuminating the crucial social issues of our day.

A round-the-world bicycle tour with one of the most original artists of our day. Urban bicycling has become more popular than ever as recession-strapped, climate-conscious city dwellers reinvent basic transportation. In this wide-ranging memoir, artist/musician and co-founder of Talking Heads David Byrne--who has relied on a bike to get around New York City since the early 1980s--relates his adventures as he pedals through and engages with some of the world's major cities. From Buenos Aires to Berlin, he meets a range of people both famous and ordinary, shares his thoughts on art, fashion, music, globalization, and the ways that many places are becoming more bike-friendly. Bicycle Diaries is an adventure on two wheels conveyed with humor, curiosity, and humanity.

David Byrne Books, David Byrne poetry book Nuevos Pecados Authors: David Byrne
Published Date: 2001
Categories: Sins
David Byrne, ex-Talking Heads front-man and multi-talented artist, presents a brilliant and very funny updating of the Seven Deadly Sins. In a beautifully-packaged little book that is the size and shape of a portable Bible, Byrne mischievously updates the biblical notions of sin for a contemporary readership, so elucidating los nuevos pecados - 'the new sins'. Amongst his shortlist, Byrne controversially includes Hope, Generosity, Altruism, Cleanliness and Contentment. His writing is witty and engaging, full of shrewd perceptions into the ways we fool ourselves about the rectitude of our motives in life. The book is designed by Dave Eggers, author of the bestseller A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, whose contribution underlines the playful quality of this delightful and highly desirable tome.

David Byrne Books, David Byrne poetry book Occupied Territory Authors: Lynne Cohen, William A. Ewing, David Byrne, David Mellor
Publisher: New York : Aperture Foundation
Published Date: 1987
Categories: Photography
"During the ?70s and ?80s, Cohen turned her view-camera toward classrooms, science laboratories, testing facilities, waiting rooms, and other interior spaces where function triumphs over aesthetics. In cool, functional offices, futuristic reception areas, lifeless party rooms, and escapist motel rooms, Cohen surveys a society of surface, contradiction, and social engineering. The occasional decoration added in attempts at individualism only serve to amplify their uniformity. In her hands, clouds peel off walls and forest glades invade indoor tennis courts. Cohen records the world?s ready-made sculptures, waiting to be framed by the photograph" -- Publisher's website.

David Byrne Books, David Byrne poetry book Arboretum Authors: David Byrne
Publisher: Canongate Books
Published Date: 2019-12-05
Categories: Design
For over thirty years, besides making music, David Byrne has focused his unique genius upon forms as diverse as the archaeology of music as we know it, architectural photography and the uses of PowerPoint. Now he presents his most personal work to date, a collection of drawings exploring the form of the tree diagram. Arboretum is an eclectic blend of science, automatic writing, self-analysis and satire. A journey through irrational logic - the application of scientific rigour and form to irrational premises, proceeding from careful nonsense to unexpected sense. The tree diagram is a form that might reveal more about yourself than you dreamed possible.

Matthew Prior Poem
Songs Set To Music: 16. Set By Mr. Smith
 by Matthew Prior

Accept, my Love, as true a heart
As ever lover gave;
'Tis free (it vows) from my art,
And proud to be your slave.

Then take it kindly, as 'twas meant,
And let the giver live,
Who with it would the world have sent
