This film review is well overdue as since encountering Radiance early this year I have watched it over 5 times including the times that I have just listened to the audio as I fell asleep. That is how much impact this film made in my life the first time I watched it and I feel that it deserves even more recognition than it did when it was first released.
Inspired by Machuca and the false hope that the socialist regime gave the people.
His thoughts ran far away from the conquest that loomed over him
Far away from the oppression that stared him right in the face
It was foreknown that he could not change his position in this world nor change the way that people thought about his kind
But somewhere deep inside, he had hope
He hoped for a better tomorrow
He hoped that one day he could stand a chance in this big wide world,
That would be the only gift that he would ever receive in this life, Continue reading “A Gift never Received “
Michael Landy, a pioneer of the Young British Artists movement, was born in London in 1963. Landy is best known for his performance installation piece “Break down” where he destroyed and displayed all his possessions. In 2008, Landy was elected as a member of the Royal Academy of Arts London and continues to make a big impact in the artistic industry.
‘Creeping Buttercup’, which is a detailed study of individual weeds, is a part of Nourishment -a collection of etching pieces. It is said that to acquire the materials needed as inspiration for Creeping Buttercup, Landy found weeds growing in the street.

.We are all the main characters of our own story.
Sometimes it is easy to feel as if you are just playing a supportive role in life. You feel as if the people around you live a more exciting life – they are always in the spotlight while you hide in the shadows. You hide in the shadows of your friends. You hide in the shadows of your family.
To you , you do not matter, but to someone else you are a precious pearl- their main character. You probably haven’t met this person yet. If that is the case then you should start living for yourself. All main characters in fairy tales could not have possibly existed without their supporting characters. Would there have been a Little red ridding hood without an evil wolf- I think not. The evil wolf had a purpose and so do we all.
Each of us have a purpose in life and it is up to us to find and alter it.
Welcome to my story.
Where I make up the plot.
Where I decide who my supporting leads are.
Where I begin to live.
What is your story?
