Alain Resnais‘ Hiroshima Mon Amour tells of memory and love, death and oblivion.
The fleeting relationship between two lovers is the pretext for an intimate confrontation with the events of the war, imaginary double exposures gradually merging to present experience, filtering out the emotional storm of the immense historical tragedy with the strong literary component of the dialogues (screenplay by Marguerite Duras), a catharsis of bodies and consciences.4 hearts
Once during that long evening, the door on one side of the room was opened very slightly and hurriedly closed again; later on the door on the other side did the same; it seemed that someone needed to enter the room but thought better of it.
Gregor went and waited immediately by the door, resolved either to bring the timorous visitor into the room in some way or at least to find out who it was; but the door was opened no more that night and Gregor waited in vain.
The previous morning while the doors were locked everyone had wanted to get in there to him, but now, now that he had opened up one of the doors and the other had clearly been unlocked some time during the day, no-one came, and the keys were in the other sides.
The Big Dream (Moby reversion of a David Lynch song, featuring Mindy Jones), taken from The Big Dream Remix EP 12″ on clear red vinyl. Out 19th April 2014 for Record Store Day.
Moby also directed the music video above; the track is much better than the original and Lynch is still on another level with moving images, but I still hope to find more super collaborations like this one.4 hearts
Ed Fairburn is a Cardiff based artist producing portraiture across a variety of surfaces and contexts.
Through my studies of the human form I examine the patterns and structures which exist across the body. I disassemble those structures and reconstruct them onto pre-patterned surfaces, including maps. The creative process involves synchronising both subject and surface. I search for similarities between the characteristics of the human figure and the topographical features of the map, resulting in a unique amalgamation.4 hearts
Parking the rusty spaceship for another trip in search for fuel and a meaning for it. Emblems from above talking and screaming while another mile was consumed.
Did I left something for the others?
Even for a few minutes?
