Spiral: Two Ships Just Passing in the Night

Spiral: Two Ships Just Passing in the Night

Spiral is a hilarious animated short film directed by Ross Neil and Matt Clark at HSI London.  In the film a man boards the subway late at night, which is empty except for a woman he finds strangely alluring.  She looks just like him.  His face grows towards hers, and hers to his.  Not a word is spoken, this is their moment to lose themselves in each other, but ultimately they are just passing ships in the night.

Photos of the Day: The Personal Mythology of Intimate Showers

Photos of the Day: The Personal Mythology of Intimate Showers

Photography by:  Manjari Sharma, NYC

The Shower Series (Paani) is a remarkable series of photographs by Manjari Sharma, who was born in Mumbai, India, and now lives in New York City.  The photographs offer up both intimate and awesome perspectives on a basic human need.  Over a period of months, Sharma invited people to visit her apartment and photographed them in a very intimate space, her shower.  Bathing is an ordinary routine for most of us, but Manjari Sharma’s shower became more than a place for a daily lather and rinse.  It became a confessional, a temple, and, for believers, an incarnation of the river Ganges.

As Sharma describes it, “The walls that somehow surround us and restrict us came down in the shower and made people say some very personal things about their life to me.  In my artist statement, I attribute it to the intimacy of standing in the same bathtub, the washing down of the water, and the shower thereby transforming into a confessional.  In some ways every time we take a shower and indulge in the act of shedding, pouring, coming undone, cleansing, we partake in renewing ourselves.”

Your Lucky Day: The Dark Dangers of Greed

Your Lucky Day: The Dark Dangers of Greed

Your Lucky Day is an amazing short film made for OhHello TV by Dan Brown, a dark, vulgar and disturbing tale of the dynamics of greed.  The story centers around a convenience store and its seemingly random mix of customers: an old man, a young expecting couple, a policeman, a thief and an indifferent cashier.  When the old man wins the big $156 million lottery drawing, the dynamics inside the store quickly changes and greed takes hold.  We watch things turn badly for the one holding the winning ticket, as fate sets off a series of circumstances that, in the end, seem to benefit no one.
