Just went to see this. Epic. Antony Partos’ score is amazing.
So everyones off to the polls in Ireland to vote in a similar shower of chancers to run the country. Newsnight on the BBC lastnight had a feature on the elections, featuring the obligatory shot of homeless people. Yeah BBC, everyone is homeless in Ireland. Anyway, I haven’t been following things too close so I’m not sure who I’d vote for if I lived at home but I reckon the Rubberbandits would get the job done. They’re certainly not homeless either.
In May 2010 I set out on a trip to Israel and Palestine with film-maker Andy Telling. We spent a week painting in both Tel Aviv and Bethlehem. My work deals with conflict and tension so I thought this would be an interesting place to go to.
Andy has been working away for months on the film, both editing and producing all the music. Here are the fruits of his labour.
I went to the book signing of fashion editor and photographer Frederic Chaubin’s new Taschen monograph last night. For CCCP (Cosmic Communist Constructions Photographed) Frederic spent 7 years documenting Soviet architecture from all corners of the former empire, a style of architecture almost forgotten in the West. The book has a strong and powerful design aesthetic, a fitting tribute to these monstrous and monumental buildings.
