Redpath Museum : 859 rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 0C4

Thomas Riedelshiemer, UK/USA/France, 2003: Follows Scottish artist Andy Goldsworthy as he uses natural materials to create site-specific pieces which he then leaves to be carried away -- or destroyed altogether -- by the elements. The artist explains as he creates that part of the beauty of his work is that it isn't lasting. A mesmerizing idyll that maneuvers us into a whole new way of looking at the delicate relationship between man, art and nature.

Super science documentary films - 'Microcosmos'

Sun, 2007-03-25 16:00
Redpath Museum : 859 rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 0C4

Claude Nuridsany, 1996: Using revolutionary cameras, the directors of this French film (with minimal English-language narration) have made an amazing chronicle of the insect world. There are at least a dozen fascinating, memorable images, and the carnage is held to a minimum. Some favorites: a caterpillar traffic jam, a frog's bout with a rainstorm, a bird that turns into Godzilla for a bunch of ants. Then there's the snail mating scene. All accompanied by an award-winning musical score.
