Remembering The Future

leave a comment »

Star City, Nottingham Contemporary

Those who have already been in space yearn with all their heart and soul to hasten there again and again. With every single day passing, time leaves my flight in the past. Occasionally the wind will whisper something from the tops of the tall pine trees, and then everything becomes silent. In such minutes I remember the most bright and wonderful experience in my life: the flight into space.

Valentina Tereshkova – the first woman in space

I had a feeling of nostalgia and melancholy over what might have been before I even entered the gallery. After leaving the railway station via the still relatively new and futuristic tram stop and walking up the hill towards the very new Nottingham Contemporary art gallery I passed a huge picture of Gordon Brown grimacing down at me from an advertising hoarding promoting the Conservative Party. It was the final weeks of the election campaign and what would prove to be the dying days of New Labour. Even before I got to the exhibition of art inspired by the Eastern European perspective of the Space Race it was impossible to not think of dashed hopes and what might have been.

The Guardian articles

leave a comment »

A while back I had some articles published in The Guardian newspaper. For completeness sake I’ll link them in here.

Sci-fi in Cyberspace
– Science fiction invented the internet. So where better to boldly go where no work of fiction has gone before?

Working the Web: Painting by Numbers – You may not be the next Pablo Picasso or Vincent van Gogh, but somebody, somewhere wants the watercolours you love to paint.

Keying into the Global Computer – Most of the world’s computer power sits idly on desktops, but projects that can harness it are yielding valuable information.
