Dr. Tim died on May 31, 1996. And on that day I would venture that the backplane of our planetary mind, the spirit world if you will...was vastly enriched with the new edge of human experience that Timothy's life so powerfully embodied. He was a modern hero with whom millions resonated, and whose mind and spirit opened many evolutionary pathways.

Harrel Fletcher was profoundly affected by visiting the War Remnants Museum in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), as I was when I was there last year. It was incredible to see the war - which in Vietnam is called the American War - through Vietnamese eyes. Harrell went back and photographed the entire exhibition along with all the labels and created a bootleg version which has toured around the United States. Kind of like how the Vietnamese have created bootleg versions of books, by photocopying and binding tomes by Robert McNamara et al which you can buy outside the War Remnants Museum from landmine victims.
"In June 2005 I was in Vietnam for a month as part of an international artists retreat. While I was there I visited The War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City, which is a memorial museum for what is referred to in Vietnam as 'The American War'. I was so affected by what I saw at the museum that I went back several times and eventually photographed all of the images and text descriptions from the main museum - over two hundred photos. I used my digital camera and took the shots hand held at off angles to avoid reflections, so the images have an oddly casual quality but are still accurate representations of the material depicted at the museum, with a similarly horrifying quality. Even though many of the images were familiar to me, seeing them all together and presented from the Vietnamese perspective was very striking. It made me realize that I didn't know much about the details of the war that had consumed the U.S for most of my early childhood. I started researching the history of the war in an attempt to understand why it happened and what its effects were on the region and in regards to U.S policy. The museum and my re-presentations of it are only showing one perspective, there are many others. I encourage everyone to do their own research and find out more about The American War in Vietnam and all of the other American Wars that have been happening ever since,
sometimes covertly and other times, as in the current situation in Iraq, outrageously overtly, but hidden at the same time."
Moses last walked on Gaoyang Road in 1947. It was called Chaoufoong Road then, and it was home to many of the 18,000 European Jewish refugees who had sought refuge from Nazi Germany in Shanghai's Hongkew District (today known as Hongkou) during the run-up to World War II. He casts his gaze at the lane, his brow loosens and he begins to nod. "This is it, this is it," he says softly. "I know this is it." One week into his first visit to Shanghai in almost 60 years, Moses has found his third home in an exile that lasted from 1941 to 1947.
This is the clock that my mum had and I always kind of liked but never really loved till it had disappeared... It was designed in 1955 by Gino Valle. They are still produced in Italy by Solari. From their website:
Cifra 3 is considered one of
highest expressions of synthesis between technology and design in
furniture. Winner of very important prize "compasso d'oro", exposed at
Museum of Modern Art in New York, it has been judged as one of most
precious items of design in '900; it has been shown in an exibition
of Metropolitan Museum of New York (1999-2000), dedicated to the
artistic industrial production of last century.
Born in late Sixties from the cooperation between the clever hands of
well-known architect Gino Valle and Solari Udine, it is still today a
masterpiece of style and elegance.
