Little Boy was an exhibition and series of public installations curated by Takashi Murakami, exploring otaku, a Japanese youth subculture obsessed with fantastic and apocalyptic science fiction, fantasy, video games, comic books (manga) and film animation (anime).
Chiho Aoshima, Aya Takano, Hideaki Kawashima, and Noboru Tsubaki were featured on more than a thousand MTA subway placards that appeared inside the doorways of subway cars, and an exhibition at New York's Japan Society.
A journalist from Beijing heads to the Tibetan plateau. He joins a band of volunteers who are risking their lives to protect the Tibetan antelope from poachers. The mountain patrol picks up the trail of a gang who are hunting the antelope to extinction, and pursues them to the bitter end.
Simple in this case doesn't mean boring. Mountain Patrol compellingly deals with life on the edge. Much of its power derives from being "based on a true story", yet this can also be appreciated on several levels: as a meditation on poverty and desperation; as a showcase of Tibet's stunning scenery; or as a sobering window onto China's modernization. It would have benefited from slightly tighter storytelling, true; but this is a film that deserves to be seen.
Michael Sailstorfer makes stuff out of stuff that looks like it does stuff. I really like the house made out of pieces of caravans. That one is called "Heimatlied". You'll have to navigate to it from the link below.
If you are like me and you have a Sony Ericsson k750i and a Mac then you will also have noticed that when you use the usb cable your Mac kernel panics after you unmount and remove the phone. This is BAD. I lost a hard drive after a few of those. So today I stumbled on this site which led me to a solution...
Also, here's some tricks for 750i photographers :
1 = Opens menu with "picture size" ready to select
4 = Toggles Macro mode (for close up photos)
7 = Toggles Night mode
* = Toggles Light (this is the fastest way to use the light as a torch in the dark)
0 = While in video mode toggles length of recording from 10 seconds to unlimited.
Mute camera sounds; Before opening the lense cover hold # to switch to silent mode easily Change brightness = < or >
