    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.

    Surprisingly, I have never seen any of her work until few moments ago, at first sight I found them all rather mesmerising, orchestrated scenes painted in a certain style only to find out that my first instinct was almost accurate, her process of painting is almost like that – she makes her own miniature scene model and use it as a direct reference for her paintings. Truly an interesting process! Below, I've included an extract from her About page on her website that I found amazingly intriguing.

    The paintings are glimpses of a scene or fragments of a narrative. Some of the images are conceived of sequentially. While the images don’t necessarily need to be “read” in order, I am interested in storytelling over time through repeated depictions of the same house or car or person, seasonal changes, and shifting vantage points. Like the disturbing difficulty of trying to put rolls of film in order several years after the pictures have been taken, I hope the collective images suggest a known past that is just beyond reach. I intend for the tiny scale to enhance an urge for more information. Similar to a memory, they are fictional constructions of significant moments and distillations of experience. One of my challenges is to invite the viewer to form his or her own connection and narrative so that he may empathize with the occupants’ seemingly mundane existence.

    To see more of her painting, and to pick on her amazing thoughts, head over to here.

    Paper Disorder is an interesting and experimental film by Marcus Tomlinson, made for an exhibition at the Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean in Luxembourg. Utilising one of Gareth Pugh's amazing creations, and an interesting combination of elements brings it all to life.

    You'll be able to view it here. Below are some of my favourite frames from the film itself.
