Zeiting the Geist

'Zeitgeist' is a documentary telling the story of the corruption and violation of the world. The film starts off with a speech about spirituality, followed by a series of musically synchronized clips of major events/disasters that have changed the world. It can be broken down into three parts. The first being how christianity is used by the rich and powerful to control the people. The second part is very similar to 'loose change', and is about the 9/11 conspiracy. And the third how since WW1, the mega rich have been secretly creating wars and financial disasters to get rich themselves. Alot of it i didnt understand because my knowledge on relgion and history isn't fantastic. But it is THE most interesting documentary i've seen of this style of film. It drags a bit at the start and is a bit off putting, but dont be suprised if your spitting on your floor and sending aggy comments on facebook at the end of it.

More work

These two images are what i handed in for my final piece for Digital art this year. Both we're blown up to A2, and mounted onto foam board. There isn't really a huge idea behind them, I was just basing them on differnted intertests these two characters might have, and general ideas that sprung to mind at the time. I BET YOU CANT GUESS WHO THEY ARE ?!

Need to waste time?

After spending 2 hours on facebook, at work on bank holiday monday, i decided to broaden my attention spam and play some 'online games'. This was literally a joke and got so into it. I spent nearly the last 4 hours trying to complete it and eventually gave in to a walkthrough on some forum. I tried to embedd it on this blog but it made my blog look shit.

You and I are gonna...

This documentary clearly reigns as the queen of them all. It goes right from the start of the brit pop era, with plenty of interviews with all the 'britpop superstars'. Most importantly it gives you an insight to what a complete cock Damon Alban really is. I recommend the alcohol route when watching it, as it helps to shout and slur and the TV screen, aswell as the annoying indie kid your sitting next to. Unfortunatley it was removed from youtube, but there are a few torrents about that arent too slow.

Strapped with a 28

French photographer-activist, JR has been on a mission round the worlds ghettos photographing portraits of young people 'armed' with a 28mm camera. His images are all full frame portraits, and once decided on favorites, turns the streets into open air galleries by blowing them up to 5x5m posters, and illegaly showering them on to the streets of paris. He's put together a booke with the help of vincent cassell titled '28mm'. The book consists of the 28 most meaninguful portraits from the series.
