Nick Cave – The Death of Bunny Munro

The Death of Bunny Munro is the second novel written by Nick Cave.His first novel, And the Ass Saw the Angel, was released in 1989.

The Death of Bunny Munro recounts the last journey of a salesman in
search of a soul. Following the suicide of his wife, Bunny, a
door-to-door salesman and lothario, takes his son on a trip along the
south coast of England. He is about to discover that his days are
numbered. With a daring hellride of a plot The Death of Bunny Munro is
also a modern morality tale of sorts, a stylish, furious, funny,
truthful and tender account of one man’s descent and judgement.

Fabio Viale – Ahgalla

Fabio Viale is a young Italian Sculptor who is based in Turin, Italy.  From one
aspect he is the traditional sculptor who uses marble to create his
sculptures, on the other hand though, these sculptures are no ordinary
sculptures.  Who ever thought that marble would offer such
opportunities in creating these distinct contemporary pieces that speak
the language of today with the know-how of yesterday?

For those who are acquainted with the procedure of working with marble,
they surely know that this material is not easy to handle as it
requires both mental and physical efforts by the artist from the minute
that the idea is conceived to its realization.  Despite its difficulty
in handling there is a translucency in the material that gives any
marble sculpture a visual depth beyond its surface and this evokes a
certain realism in the works created.  This is the case with Fabio
Viale as his works do not seem to be created from bulky marble but
rather seem like they have been created by lightweight styrofoam.

Haus Rucker Co

Haus-Rucker-Co was an Austrian architect and artist , worked mainly in the 70s and
80s  between art and architecture, sculptures, installations in
public spaces .

In 1968 Haus Rucker Co created this device consisting of a pulsating bubble inside a large
inflatable capsule, which was supported by a waist-high metal frame. At
its core was a bed with ample room for two people to recline and take
it easy. A repeat pattern of inflation and deflation created a soft,
pulsating rhythm, to which the inhabitants were supposed to adapt and
relax.

Other devices included a collection of bizarre helmets with colored
visors, flashing lights and stereo headphones. These plastic
headpieces, with the names ‘Flyhead’, ‘Viewatomizer’, ‘Drizzler’ and
‘Environment Transformer’ (all 1968), were said to isolate the wearer
from the outside world. The helmets placed a buffer between the real
world and the senses of the person inside.

Tsugi Podcast 106 – The Black Dog

Tsugi Podcast 106 : The Black Dog

Certaines légendes ne semblent jamais attirer l’attention de
l’histoire. Par exemple, vous souvenez vous de l’inventeur du
tournevis? Du toaster? Non, et dans la mesure où tout ça est hors
propos, c’est assez logique. À la fin des 80’s le trio Black Dog fit
office de sage-femme, au côté d’Aphex Twin et Autechre en mettant au
monde l’IDM. Laissant le soin à d’autres de faire grandir la dance
music non-écervelée, deux des chiens noirs créeront Plaid (et la bande
son de fin de rave, par la même occasion, parachute des descentes sous
acides) abandonnant Ken Downie, seul au sein du groupe. Nous sommes en
2009 et Black Dog a (re)construit sa propre niche: un Detroit vs
Sheffield, ou la confrontation d’une techno raveuse à l’ambient
fleurissant depuis 20ans dans les productions d’un petit label de
Sheffield nommé Warp.

Lisa M. Robinson – Snowbound

Lisa M. Robinson graduated cum laude from Columbia University, and
received her MFA in Photography from the Savannah College of Art
and Design. After moving to New York, she became printing assistant
for George Tice. Awards include a Fulbright Grant, as well as “Curator’s
Choice” at the Houston Center of Photography Membership Exhibition
and the “Top 50 Photographers” chosen by Critical Mass. She has
been an Artist-in-Residence at Light Work, and was recently selected
as the Evelyn Stefansson Nef Fellow at the MacDowell Colony.
Snowbound has been exhibited internationally in Argentina, Syria,
Lithuania, Denmark, Uruguay, Chile and Bolivia. Her work is in such
collections as the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Museum of
Photographic Arts, San Diego; the Ogden Museum of Southern Art;
and Fidelity Investments. Lisa M. Robinson was recently nominated
for a Louis Comfort Tiffany Grant.


For five winters, the young American photographer Lisa M. Robinson
made photographs in the snow. Snowbound depicts landscapes in which
everyday objects – alienated and sunken in snow- civilize the natural
surroundings. Traces of human existence set accents in the white
landscape, delimiting it and often popping up in an amusing or
incongruous way. A lonely hammock, a trampoline or a swimming pool
are echoes of both summers past and of personal memories. But
Lisa M. Robinson is not interested in showing the obvious; instead,
the photographs make use of the many aggregate states of water –
ice, snow, fog, water – as metaphors for life and transience.
