Monthly Art #7

This is a monthly “newsletter”, containing a list of what I enjoyed the most last month. Whether it was a full length movie, short film, music album or book or even painting.

Film - Agora (2009)

Historians seem to agree that most of the books of Library of Alexandria were lost during Caesar’s fire and, later, during the taking of the city by another Roman Emperor, Aurelius. The rest were lost in the conflict between pagans and christians. This movie shows how religion can be used for evil, killing thousands of people just because they profess a different religion.

Short film - The Life of Death (2016)

Beautiful handdrawn animation about the day Death fell in love with Life.

TED talk - Design at the intersection of technology and biology (2015)

Clothing, which sits perfectly. Houses, which are made of natural materials and fit perfectly into the surrounding countryside. I would like to live in that future and I am glad that there are people working on it.
