Inventory of Indian Spices

New experience document to accompany my presentation

Pecha Kucha

Really impressed by this approach to a presentation. A lot of them are a bit predictable and don't keep your attention. This however en captures his work, influences and inspiration through comic linguistics.

Day Four

Last night I wanted to cook something new. I didn't have the time or patience for a risotto so whipped up a curry with chick peas and noodles. My carnivorous housemates were rather impressed!

My new experience as a vegetarian

As part of my latest brief I have become vegetarian. Who knows how long I will last. A bit late blogging after removing meat from my diet on Friday 15th April. My thoughts so far are mixed. Iv really enjoyed experimenting with vegetarian food, its quite refreshing. However I think my stomach has shrunk already. Hardly that hungry considering I haven't devoured a bacon sandwich since friday! This isn't good for a skinny man. 

Some of my dishes as far..

Justice Runners

Short film by Satoshi Tomioka. Wild and unique take on the world. Multicoloured animation that takes you on a whirlwind trip of old school trams with weird and wonderful charatcers. Reflection of his personal vision in its unadulterated glory. 

Another striking example of his short film work is Gas Tank Mania:

Effectively subversive and unsettling with non organic shapes.

Short film by Pleix. Music by Kid 66. An arresting visual representation of 911 told through the graphic disintegration of a high rise building in New York. Helpless onlookers watch as fragments of the black glass windows disperse throughout the city.  A haunting. poetic and powerful short film.

MK12 // Sunkenlust from MK12 on Vimeo.

Short film for Gum Magazine by MK12.  45 years of unknown photographs into a disturbed super8 reel feel. Family bliss contrasts to the dark undertones and menace. The sound of dogs barking adds to the sense of foreboding.

Where Children Sleep

                                         Seventeen-year-old, 'X' lives in a 'favela' in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

                      This unnamed four-year-old boy lives on the outskirts of Rome, Italy. He and his family all sleep on the mattress in the photograph

Where Children Sleep, set to be published later this year by Chris Boot, is a collection of James Mollison's photographs of childrens' bedrooms from around the world.

"I hope this book will help children think about inequality, within and between societies around the world," says Mollison in his introduction, "and perhaps start to figure out how, in their own lives, they may respond."

Shadow Catchers

When visiting the Victoria & Albert museum in London I opted to check out the latest exibition ‘Shadwo Catchers’. Shadow Catchers present the work of five international contempory artists. They work without a camera creating images on photographic paper by casting shadows and manipulating light, or by chemically treating the surface of the paper. Camerlas phography shows what has never existed. Leaving room for imagination, transforming the world of objects into a world of visions.

Bill Viola

His works focus on universal human experiences like birth, death, the unfolding of consciousness. Stemming from spiritual traditions, including Zen Buddhism, Islamic Sufism, and Christian mysticism.

Study for a Riot‬

Alexandros Vasmoulakis work Based on the recent riots in Athens and the rest of Greece.

During 2010, Greece came under the supervision of IMF and EU. The fear of poverty and financial recession has built up a feeling of social unrest. Memories of the Greek riots of 2008, according to the media, have created the expectation in Greece and abroad, of a new, more violent riot. - Alexandros Vasmoulakis

Comfort Zone

'I’m interested in the way they occupy the street spatially, face-down or lying sideways. Often the aesthetic style of the sofa matches the architecture it used to be housed in. I don’t touch or re-arrange them, and I wait until there’s no-one in the frame. Somehow they bring a certain calm to the chaos of the urban environment. '- Christine Donnier-Valentin


Into the Void - Moving Image Research

Gaspar Noé's Enter The Void - Opening Credits

The visual language of the movie, with its psychedelic colors and frequent use of the first person perspective, is heavily inspired by imagery associated with psychadelica and drug use. Noé's radical approach extends into the opening title sequence. Noé is interested in cinema as a physical experience. To provoke a visceral response from the audience, Noécreated a violating pace and used pulsating strobe effects for the opening titles of Enter the Void. The sequence combines myriad iconic typographic archetypes, if not clichées, with film company logos – a reference to the futuristic neon signs that line the streets of Kabukichō, Tokyo's red-light district in Shinjuku. The distorted electronic score is by LFO. Who ill be seeing at Bloc festival in march.

'Kan exploits every trick in the commercial lettering manual: drop shadows, bevelled edges, Gothic type, neon type, 1960s futurism, shattered letters, melting letters. Spliced together with Japanese characters and subjected to jittery filters and treatments, this maelstrom of words signals the delirious, immersive excitement of Noé’s Tokyo, a city of nightclubs, logos, adverts, neon, throbbing music, drugs and sexual sleaze, a place where spiritual compasses can easily spin out of control.' - Rick Poyner, Eye Magazine
