Trailer for WASTE LAND, a film by Lucy Walker. In theaters in the US October 29th.
Filmed over nearly three years, WASTE LAND follows Muniz as he journeys from his home base in Brooklyn to his native Brazil and the world’s largest garbage dump, Jardim Gramacho, located on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. There he photographs an eclectic band of “catadores” — self-designated pickers of recyclable materials. Muniz’s initial objective was to “paint” the catadores with garbage. However, his collaboration with these inspiring characters as they recreate photographic images of themselves out of garbage reveals both the dignity and despair of the catadores as they begin to re-imagine their lives. Director Lucy Walker (DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND, BLINDSIGHT, COUNTDOWN TO ZERO) has great access to the entire process and, in the end, offers stirring evidence of the transformative power of art and the alchemy of the human spirit.

“One night when I was messing around with Audacity making an absurdly long mix tape and all 60 tracks where imported to the same point in the time-line. I played it once just to see what it sounds like and I basically got phase cancellation or a demonic white noise.These is the graphic equivalent of the audio signal.
I thought it was pretty funny that black metal makes white noise. It perpetuates a belief in a binary hierarchy between good and evil. If the inversion of a symbol or ideology equates to the antithesis of its initial reading then the possibilities of formal analysis are limited to a rhetorically frozen gesture. If evil author equates evil audience, then the range of existential options is too easily determined and eliminates the vast sea of contextual grey.”

Based on the idea of lines, Seb Preschoux has created this incredible string art. What began as paintings and then drawings soon turned into amazing art installations. Preschoux wanted to make something in a natural environment so he chose forests in Paris as his setting. Easy to reach and a perfect place with lots of space, Preschoux liked “the contrast between the nature and the geometrical shapes produced by the installations and their light and colors.” See more at My Modern Metropolis.
