"The rise of the art websites — there are more than 300 now — is another big trend that helps would-be buyers. Experts also say these online transaction platforms could eventually increase valuation of art because they add liquidity to the lower end of the market."

london’s barbican center has commissioned british art and design studio, united visual artists (UVA) to take part in ‘curve art’, a program launched in 2006 to artistically occupy the rounded space behind the concert hall. in response, the creative team has produced ‘momentum’. the multi-sensory installation that immerses the observer in light and sound, turning the corridor into a musical instrument, to which pendulums dance above. as they move, the space is transformed with patterns of light that vary from simple stripes to platonic geometric and floral forms. they play of illuminated areas and shadow creates an ever-evolving atmosphere through which, visitors are invited to linger, taking their time, moving at their own desired pace to the beat of the music.

Research has shown that testosterone plays a vital role in our body’s recovery and regeneration processes. Not only does testosterone itself play an essential role in the tissue formation and protein synthesis required to heal wounds, it also plays an important role in IGF-1 production. IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor 1) is a polypeptide that works with human growth hormone in the healing process. Moreover, it serves as a general wound-healing stimulant by increasing the rate of cell reproduction near a wound site as well as increasing the rate of skin regrowth.
