This is a very interesting and artistic rug created by Ariel Rojo. This rug portrays Mexico City at night from a satellite view. It’s features are composed of 100% wool and was presented at the abierto mexicano de diseño 2013. The orange specs represent the 25 million populated within the federal district and metropolitan area; one of the most populated areas in the world. With this overpopulation comes crisis, insecurity, corruption and crime, yet despite these political issues; art, design, architecture, music and many other creative disciplines are beginning to engender within the land. Rojo states, “All lights represented in the rug reflect the individuals who inhabit the city and the huge possibility and promise that it could bring to them if all of those lights were seeking the common welfare.” This piece very fascinating not only for its’ design but because of the meaning within its design. It’s a representation that even in the most struggling places there is still hope for prosperity no matter what your situation may be. It is also a representation of how powerful creativity is and how it is constantly changing the world. It makes you question what you’re doing or what you’re not doing do have an impact on the world. With opportunities more abundant than they’ve ever been today and more technological advances, how dare we not do something to impact the world. How dare we accept mediocrity to exist. Open hearts and you open minds. Find the time.

They say that we get better with age, but I don’t think I believe that. They say that we become wiser and more mature with age, but I don’t believe that either. To be honest I’m afraid to get older because I’m only good at being young. When I speak about getting older it has nothing to do with my threads becoming old and not as tightly knotted as they used to be; that’s natural and nothing a good weaver can’t fix. What scares me are the beliefs and thoughts the rug society tries to weave within our threads; making us believe that our lives travel along the same single threaded path with the ENTIRE design of our world going in the same direction. To me that idea is pure insanity. Though our paths are interwoven and we all are relatively connected in the grand scheme of the design, no one rug leads the same path or destiny because no one rug has the same history; so NATURALLY we’re different! Today traditional, contemporary, and transitional are ALL different and yet the same. We now have a plethora of ways to invent ourselves and re-invent ourselves! Whether you’re an old time traditional rug that wants to express their more contemporary side by being over dyed or wash erased; or a transitional rug who enjoys their history and is woven with a more traditional design while still keeping their contemporary edge, it’s always about being who you are while expressing who you are at the same time. If you want to lay on the floor as a rug, lay on the floor! And for those who want to spread their threads and venture closer to the sun like the story of Icarus and be hung on the wall, well then be different and hang on the wall! Let your owner know, “I am forever young and I was made to be seen!” (cue Jay – Z and Mr. Hudson “Forever Young” song)
Contemporary rugs are the rugs of today. They are the “here and now” works of many modern artists such as Andy Warhol, Plum Blossom from Karastan, and even designer brands like Calvin Klein. They differ from traditional rugs by the way they look and sometimes feel. As oppose to traditional rugs which are made up of neutral and tempered colors, contemporary rugs are often composed of vivid, vibrant and more live-like colors that stand out. The geometric patterns used on contemporary rugs are often reminiscent of the famous painter Pablo Picasso’s bold cubism paintings. Sophisticated patterns such as curved, floral and polka dot design, are often features that identify contemporary rugs. With the many designs and color ranges of contemporary rugs, it’s easier to find and match a rug of your liking to almost any household theme; such as today’s Rug Love Of The Day composed of a Tibetan weave wool material originating from India. Today there is a high demand for not only contemporary rugs, but traditional rugs with a new twist on them with color reformation such as over-dying and wash erased.
