Nomadism

Under - Art, Inspiration, Literature, Media, Photography, Poetry

Traveller, photographer and cinematographer Marty Mellway compiled this truly inspiring piece of work with clips from his travel videos. The end result is a fascinating fusion of music, poetry and photography – a very intoxicating mix for creative and curious minds!

I use photography and cinema to capture what I see and feel. I live a lifestyle of almost perpetual motion only stopping for short breaks before heading back on the road. I travel as much and as often as I can. My films are a tribute to this incredible world and everything it shares with us. I’m so inspired by the idea of cinema and photography, the very act of capturing light energy and making it mean something is just so incredible and profound – Marty Mellway

… and yes, below is the beautiful poem in this video by Lord Byron (George Gordon) 1788–1824 – narrated by Tom O’bedlam.

SO WE’LL GO NO MORE A ROVING

So, we’ll go no more a roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart be still as loving,
And the moon be still as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
And the soul wears out the breast,
And the heart must pause to breathe,
And love itself have rest.

Though the night was made for loving,
And the day returns too soon,
Yet we’ll go no more a roving
By the light of the moon.

Banksy.

Banksy’s identity remains unknown, but his work isn’t.

Banksy is a pseudonymous England-based graffiti artist, political activist, film director, and painter.

His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine irreverent dark humour with graffiti done in a distinctive stencilling technique. Such artistic works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world.

Banksy’s work was born of the Bristol underground scene which involved collaborations between artists and musicians. According to author and graphic designer Tristan Manco and the book Home Sweet Home, Banksy “was born in 1974 and raised in Bristol, England. The son of a photocopier technician, he trained as a butcher but became involved in graffiti during the great Bristol aerosol boom of the late 1980s… more

Reverse of volume RG: Yasuaki Onishi

Under - Art, Inspiration, Media

Yasuaki Onishi uses the simplest materials in his installation — plastic sheeting and black hot glue — to create a monumental, mountainous form that appears to float inside of Rice University Art Gallery. His process of “casting the invisible” involves draping the sheeting over objects, which are removed to leave only their impressions. Onishi views this process of “reversing” sculpture to be a meditation on the nature of the negative space, or void, left behind.

Yasuaki Onishi studied sculpture at University of Tsukuba and Kyoto City University of Arts. He has had solo exhibitions throughout Japan and internationally, and his work was included in Ways of Worldmaking (2011), at the National Museum of Art, Osaka (NMAO). His most recent solo exhibition in the United States was in 2012 at the The Marlin and Regina Miller Gallery at Kutztown University in Kutztown, Pennsylvania. In 2010, Onishi was the recipient of a United States-Japan Foundation Fellowship that included a residency at the Vermont Studio Center, as well as a grant from The Pollock-Krasner Foundation Inc., New York.

The film above is produced by Walley Films, an independent production company set up by a husband and wife filmmaking duo Mark and Angela Walley based in San Antonio, Texas. Walley Films is dedicated to the advocacy of the arts in their community.

Hard to believe that this small short by Miguel Endara is done through iPhone 4s! A brilliant device for capturing video but even more brilliant the person behind who used it in such a way.

Thoroughly impressed with the quality and stability of the iPhone 4S. Video briefly documents the amazing 2 week honeymoon/adventure in the Galapagos with the lovely wife, Lily Vidal.

Life without Lights by Peter DiCampo

Under - Art, Geography, Inspiration, Media, Photography

Life without Lights is a photography project by Boston, MA based photographer Peter DiCampo who got the idea for this project while working as a Peace Corps volunteer in Ghana from 2006-2008.

I realized how deeply the lack of electricity affected the lives of my neighbors. It impeded their progress in the sectors of health, education, gender equality, agriculture, and virtually every aspect of development.

With a goal to publish these stories and creating a wider awareness of this issue, he recently raised funding for this project on Kickstarter.com. Besides, Peter DiCampo has been given a rare opportunity to exhibit his work at the 2012 UN International Year of Sustainable Energy for All conference and at Rio+20 to address audiences of policymakers and world leaders, sharing stories from the people he photographed.

At a time of constant debate over the future of energy, it is easy to forget that 1.4 billion people – nearly a quarter of humanity – still live without access to electricity. Through my Life Without Lights photography, I strive to reveal the economic impact of global Energy Poverty while exploring energy’s future.

I began this project while living in rural northern Ghana, where I realized how deeply the lack of electricity affected the lives of my neighbors: It impeded their progress in the sectors of health, education, gender equality, agriculture, and virtually every aspect of development. Since then, I’ve photographed people living in a state of Energy Poverty on top of the vast oil reserves of Kurdistan, and just outside of Albuquerque, the largest city in the US state of New Mexico.
