from the sea

Hey Signe, adore your work <3 I'm having one of those moments where I feel like everything I make is crap, and everyone is more creative and talented than me. Any tips for pushing through that? <3

I think that the modern state of the internet/the feed makes it so that we are oversaturated with other people’s content/art/lives.  Constantly looking at what other people are doing makes it difficult to have our own authentic ideas, and our ideas are what we need in order to make work that is unique.  We have to remind ourselves that this constant stream of other people’s information is a new phenomena— it’s never been like this before, and thus it used to be a lot easier to focus.  So since we live in this new era, we need to create new practices to keep ourselves from drowning in the overwhelming sea of the feed.

My suggestion is that you set aside an hour a day where you turn off your phone and force yourself to check in with your own mind.  It’ll be hard and tempting and you’ll want to pick up your phone after five minutes, but don’t do it.  It’s your challenge, and it’s going to help you.  Take a walk or a drive or just go sit outside somewhere with a pen and paper and let your mind wander.  The best ideas will come to you when you isolate your mind from the noise, and those ideas are what will inform your art <3

Personally, I like a beach-coloured sky

A rainy day in Sydney feels like the right time for this one…

You look at the sky and realise:

You don’t know anything about anything.

If nothing else, you walk two dogs and they’re your personal trainers, and they take you to see the sights…You’ve seen whales climbing from the sea like dark and windowless buses, then ploughing, driverless, back down. You’ve felt rain like broken glass. You’ve seen multitudes of skies, and never one the same.

You remember being in a plane once, on the Gold Coast, at sunset, and after take-off, there was nothing but endless channels of cloud and colour and sky. People were eating their meals. Better sunsets in their dinners.

Here, two different dawns.

Crusader Hand Grenade and Bronze Knife Among Archaeological Treasures Retrieved from the Mediterranean Sea

A treasure trove of priceless artifacts, the earliest of which are 3,500 years old, were recently turned over to the state of Israel by a family that inherited them from their father who passed away. One of the most striking gems the family had hung onto is a beautifully decorated hand grenade, of a type commonly used during the Crusader, Ayyubid and Mamluk periods.

there will be sand in the cracks inbetween our hands held tight, held close to our chests on quiet nights. we will sleep on the shore, her hair tickling my cheek, a slight breeze but the warmth of her heart beating gives me strength. the beaches will breathe for us as we sleep, and we will dream. the mermaids from the deep sea will call to us, warn us, protect us from the dangers of their ocean home. we will all be good friends. we will look for shells in every crevice and collect them all until we can spell our names out of the seaweed. there is nothing artificial here, no chlorine, everything is natural here. she will whisper sweet nothings in my ear and we will build castles and we will fall in love. we will fall in love again every night, she and i, me and her and the sea.

The Reefs, by the way, are the ruins of modern American cities– in particular, ones along the western coastline, like san francisco, los angeles, and san diego

when the aliens came, they annihilated the earth’s environment by the use of invasive species– everything from virulent microbes to vicious megafauna– but nothing was quite as pernicious as the polyps. although they flourish in aquatic habitats, hardier strains can live outside of water in moist environments… and the alien invaders have artificially induced rising sea levels to suit their needs

basically, the city streets– and any metros or subways beneath them– are entirely flooded. taller buildings still rise from the sea, but they’re encrusted with branching pathways of coral, making the entire city look like a beached reef

hence the name

going to the Reefs is incredibly dangerous… but, being untouched, they’re a lure for intrepid scavengers. it’s even rumored that there are people who live in the Reefs… although if that’s true, the mutagenic properties of the polyps mean that you might not be able to call them people anymore

HUFFLEPUFF:

“Everyone who terrifies you is sixty-five percent water.
And everyone you love is made of stardust, and I know sometimes
you cannot even breathe deeply, and
the night sky is no home, and
you have cried yourself to sleep enough times
that you are down to your last two percent, but
nothing is infinite,
not even loss.
You are made of the sea and the stars, and one day
you are going to find yourself again.”

–Finn Butler (The Sea and the Stars)

Dans l'Océan Atlantique, une plateforme de forage libère une monstrueuse et belliqueuse créature abyssale, lointain parent de Godzilla et Behemoth, en version anorexique et cornue. A l’annonce de la nouvelle, dans les couloirs du Pentagone (parce-que, comme d'habitude, les autres pays s'en tamponnent le coquillard), c'est le branle-bas de combat. L'amiral Hadley propose alors de lancer contre la créature un nouveau type d'arme secrète: des robots géants pilotés par des as de la Navy. Ainsi, quelques heures plus tard, Jim, Red et Stacy, trois têtes brulées connues autant pour leurs frasques alcoolisées que pour leurs états de service, enfilent leurs robot-suit, combinaison couvertes de capteurs permettant de contrôler les mouvements des mechas, et plongent dans les profondeurs de l'océan pour en découdre avec la bête.

INFORMATIONS :

Tout ce que vous pouvez penser d’ATLANTIC RIM (retitré ATTACK FROM BENEATH aux Etats-Unis !) sans l’avoir vu est vrai. Oui, il s’agit d’un démarquage assumé de PACIFIC RIM sur le sujet des monstres contre des robots géants. Oui, il s'agit d'une production de la désormais célèbre firme The Asylum, connue pour ses «mockbusters» comme MEGAPIRANHA ou encore TRANSMORPHERS, singeant et copiant les blockbusters les plus en vue du moment. Oui, The Asylum compte sur un marketing à la pointe ainsi que le buzz internet pour faire monter la sauce et parler du film. Oui, le budget est minuscule et repose sur des effets numériques bas de gamme.
