Megadrought

megadrought-california

Is this drought in California going to last another 2 years, or 200? These are questions going through scientist’s heads as they study the long-term climate patterns in the Western states. Through tree ring and other earthly data, researchers have identified multiple 10-20 year droughts occurring over the last 1000 years, and even worse, “ancient megadroughts” happening from 850 to 1090 and 1140 to 1320. With the Colorado River being run dry, and Arizona in the midst of its own 14-year drought, the outlook isn’t too great for a quick return to the ‘wet’ years of last century. So what will happen if this drought continues for a decade or more? Farms will disappear, desalinization plants are likely, and most importantly, Californians will adapt. It won’t be the end of the world, but man, will it be expensive.

Things Got Flipped-Turned Upside Down

upside-down

For his site-specific installation, “Miner on the Moon,” artist Alex Chinneck turned a London building upside down. “I’m conscious that when a person walks through the doors of an art gallery they do so through choice, but people do not make that choice when presented with public sculpture,” Alex says. “I wanted to create an artwork therefore that offered spectacle but was simultaneously subtle and by using the material and architectural language of the district the artwork has the ability to disappear into its environment without dominating it.”

John and George

A new short film by Will Robson-Scott

“John and his dog George are a fixture on Shoreditch High Street year round. His drawings of the east London land marks and portraits of George provide John with an escape from his demons. His past is tainted with living rough and addiction. George is Johns closest companion, he and drawing are Johns one constant in life.”
