Overwatch’s Sombra mystery grows deeper as latest clue debunks popular fan theory
A new code says look behind you, not above
By Allegra Frank

Overwatch is more than just a hero-based shooter on Windows PC and consoles — it’s the centerpiece of one of gaming’s current, most fascinating alternate reality games. The fanbase has dedicated itself to cracking the code that it suggests will reveal Sombra, a character many think is the game’s next playable hero. Last night, players discovered the latest puzzle piece — but it’s more of a step backward, not forward.”

EXHIBITION

Exhibition: IMMA is Celebrating its 20th Anniversary with “Twenty exhibition” and a host of other events.

Twenty is an exhibition featuring 20 younger-generation Irish and international artists, whose work is increasing prominent in the global visual arts arena.

It will be the centrepiece of a wide-ranging programme to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the foundation of the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA)

Many of the works in Twenty:

Drawn from IMMA’s Collection, the works in Twenty include installations, photography, painting and sculpture. Commonalties and dialogues appear between the works, but the exhibition seeks to allow sufficient space that each may be viewed as representing an individual practice. For example, Katie Holten’s 137.5 / It started on the c train, 2002, a web-like wall installation made from crochet, started on the subway in New York and continued as the artist traveled around Eastern Europe.

Another work, Memorial Gardens, 2008, by Niamh O’Malley was made while O’Malley was participating in IMMA’s Artists’ Residency Programme. It presents footage taken in the nearby WarMemorial Gardens in Islandbridge projected on to etched-primed aluminum, creating an unreal, chimera type effect of distance and loss.

Works by Orla Barry, Stephen Brandes, Nina Canell, Fergus Feehily, Patrick M FitzGerald, John Gerrard, David Godbold, Paddy Jolley, Nevan Lahart, Niamh McCann, Willie McKeown, Perry Ogden, Liam O'Callaghan, Alan Phelan, Garrett Phelan, Eva Rothschild and Corban Walker are also shown, together with a borrowed piece by Irish artist Sean Lynch. Many of the Irish artists live abroad – in New York, Berlin, Vienna or London – reflecting the increasingly international environment in which their work is now seen. The significance of IMMA’s Artists’ Residency Programme, established in 1994, is also evident as many of the artists in Twenty have participated in the programme at some point, including Orla Barry, David Godbold, Liam O’Callaghan, Niamh O’Malley, Sean Lynch, Paddy Jolley, Katie Holten, Nevan Lahart, Alan Phelan and Garrett Phelan.

Twenty continues until the end of October and admission is FREE.

An update over at Book of the Dead now includes screenshots and a write up from the tremendously rare Elite Entertainment alternate footage VHS tapes. 

Here is the information given below. You can visit the link to see the screenshots shared on the site:

There exists a set of ten NTSC VHS tapes, probably created in the late 1990’s, containing 3h 49m 17s of The Evil Dead raw film footage. Only four sets of these tapes are thought to exist; one owned by Sam Raimi, the second by Elite Entertainment, the owner of the third is unknown, and the fourth is owned by a friend of the site. It was from these tapes (tape 2 mostly) that the twenty-minute ‘Behind The Scenes Footage & Outtakes’ featurette on the 1999 US R1 Elite Entertainment Special Edition DVD was was assembled. This is entirely different to the The Evil Dead: Treasures From The Cutting Room Floor raw footage featurette on the 2007 US R1 Anchor Bay Entertainment 3-disc Ultimate Edition DVD.

Primarily the footage consists of alternate and longer takes of shots used in the finished film, and while much of the footage is silent, there are a few interesting new and longer scenes in there too. Each tape ranges from 15-27mins, probably containing the contents of one or two 16/35mm film reels each; accounting for the short length. While much of the shooting was indeed done without sound, there are some shots where the clapper board is visible with a sound number, so sound would have been recorded at the time but it’s just missing on the tapes. This set was never meant for the public to see in it’s entirety, so it probably never mattered to anyone involved. It was just created for Elite to assemble the raw footage featurette.
