ARTIST WANTS ANSWERS AFTER WORK SHIPPED BY CANADA POST DESTROYED

first_imgWood artist Yanick Richard says he has received no answers from Canada Post after his client’s art was destroyed in the box. (CBC/Sam Martin) Yanick Richard ships hundreds of boxes containing his birch art every year, and knows there’s a chance the delicate pieces could be damaged along the way.To minimize that risk, the Edmonton artist painstakingly ships his custom wooden wall art — made of twigs and branches carefully nailed into a pine frame — in bubble wrap, layers of cardboard, tape and dozens of orange “fragile” stickers.Throughout years of shipping through Canada Post, he has had the odd piece that arrived at its destination with scratches or minor damage. Advertisement Facebook Twitter Advertisementcenter_img Login/Register With: Advertisement But an art piece sent to a client in Kelowna on Oct. 20 arrived three weeks late on Nov. 21, looking like it had been run over and hastily repackaged. The wood frame inside was broken and birch branches were strewn throughout the box. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment last_img read more

Feluda and Byomkesh to dominate screens this Christmas

first_imgThe festival season in Kolkata is going to see a crop of new detective films in Bengali- a Byomkesh Bakshi thriller and a Feluda flick. Double Feluda is an upcoming thriller directed by acclaimed director Sandip Ray, son of the iconic film director Satyajit Ray.Occasion? Feluda was created by the acclaimed Oscar-winning director 50 years ago and son Sandip Ray’s latest Feluda film is based on this popular Bengali sleuth’s many exploits. This film also marks the comeback of veteran actor Sabyasachi Chakraborty as Feluda (after Royal Bengal Rahasya in 2011) and Saheb Bhattacharya, as his assistant Topshe.  Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe film is scheduled to be released in mid-December. Two stories, ‘Samaddarer Chabi’ and ‘Golokdham Rahasya’ are going to be packed in this thriller. The popular character Jatayu of other Feluda stories and films will probably be missing from these films. Just a year after hitting the silver screen with the popular Har Har Byomkesh, director Arindam Sil will be back once again with a revamped Byomkesh Bakshi – Byomkesh Pawrbo- starring Abir Chatterjee in the lead role.  Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveBased on Sharadindu Bandhopadhyay’s classic series, the cerebral Bengali sleuth Byomkesh Bakshi will be revealing his daring side as he pulls off some daredevil stunts in the Dooars forest where the story is set. A new riveting case sees Bakshi playing investigator in Santagola which has become a hub of the illegal weapons trade. The Bengal Government requests the sleuth to track down the culprits but as soon as Bakshi starts his investigation, he zeroes in on few well-known people of this city, who turn out to be possible suspects. However, he realises that these men are powerful and  he will never be able to search their warehouses and mills. In the meantime, a demented man named Amrito claims that he has seen a strange, horse-riding figure roaming around the jungle. Amrito is sent to the jungle to observe this phenomenon. The very next morning, his bullet ridden dead body is found inside the jungle. As Byomkesh delves deep into the case, a lot of well-respected men gets unmasked.Director Arindam Sil explains why going back to this particular series is important to him, “Byomkesh Bakshi is one character in Bengali literature whose depth lies in the multiple layers of his persona. Though he is a deep thinker, a ‘Satyanweshi’ yet his unflinching courage, righteous nature and dauntless spirit make him stand apart from the rest”. The key attractions of the film, says Sil, are the  beauty of the Dooars forest where the film has been extensively shot, the backdrop of the Tebhaga movement of 1948 and superb acting by an  eclectic cast, including Abir Chatterjee (Byomkesh), Sohini Sarkar, Ritwick Chakraborty, Rajatava Dutta, June Maliah, Sayantika Banerjee, Kaushik Sen and other accomplished character actors of Bengali cinema. Releasing on December 12, the film is bound to face off with the Feluda release but Sil is confident about his success, “I am my own competition. Also, if Sandip Ray is liberal enough to give me rights to making another Feluda film, I’m game”.  The film has been produced by Shree Venkatesh Films and Surinder Films while Sandip Ray’s Double Feluda has been produced by Eros International.last_img read more

More than words can say

first_imgOpening at the India International Centre (IIC) on September 5 is Shiju Basheer’s photography exhibition ‘Unscripted Lives’. For once these are not pretty pictures. These are pictures that dwell on the last chapter of human journeys, even as they speak to us about pathos and pain and the agony of being alone as well as old.Shiju’s travels to Ethiopia and other places have left an indelible impact on him and this modest portfolio of photographs from these countries tells more than a thousand tales. Faces, fascinate Shiju especially when the faces belong to old unknown people who live out their existence in the debris of abject poverty and society’s margins. Each image of the faces has a story to tell. And yet without words, the faces talk to us about timeless tales writ large between wrinkles and sad evocative eyes. Perhaps more about tragedies and loss and personal battles fought long ago. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”I decided to buy a camera after watching a documentary on war photographer James Nachtwey. I loved photography even before but didn’t have the money to buy a camera,” says Shiju. “I got my first camera in 2005 and have been clicking photographs since,” adds Shiju, who belongs to the town of Kayamkulam in Kerala. While, at first, Shiju would click anything that caught his fancy, he soon started focussing on topics. “I did a series called ‘Life in trash’ on the garbage collectors in the Middle East.” Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”Photography is my language and my medium to communicate, to identify with my subject, to make myself heard. As a photojournalist, I have always felt an intense desire to unravel the unseen story and let the true light fall on the dense darkness which is often found clouding our vision,” says Shiju.”I like to travel extensively and was lucky enough to traverse India and several countries across Asia. I have studied and reported various social issues and some of my works were featured in reputed publications. I have also had opportunities to conduct exhibitions featuring my photographs in Europe, Middle-East, and India, which have won wide acclaim.” Three images stand apart for the abject desolation that they convey of the depths of disillusioned dependence within a lonely isolation. Eyes taken in Ethiopia is a grey subdued image of a pair of eyes peering through the straw-thatched hut -it holds the promise of hope as chained in the sadness of time’s many travails. Breast Feeding is another signature of poverty-stricken angst. Mysteries of human faces can be read from different angles in photographs that are portraits. Faces and people from different milieu get set as frames of posterity. As Shiju captures these unscripted lives etched out in dimensions of expression and evocation, we see that every frame is scripted in a state of solitary angst and deep pain.One image of Varanasi is both evanescent and ephemeral. “When the sun rises over the quivering waters of the sacred Ganga, when the gossamer evenings eventually meet the dark and the holy lamps are lit to restore their golden glory, when silence conceals itself at the epicenter of all the bustling human activities, witness every ephemeral thing revelling in its own transience and transcending into your timeless memory scape.” States Shiju.The exhibition is on view from September 6 – 12, 2018.last_img read more

With Microsoft Tech You Can Talk to a Hologram of a Coworker

first_img Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. March 28, 2016 2 min read This story originally appeared on Engadget Last June Microsoft showed off its HoloLens tech that created holograms from live video. Now it’s putting that into practice and giving it an official name: Holoportation.It uses multiple 3-D cameras to capture a subject from all angles, creating a “temporally consistent model” that can mimic the feeling of someone being in a room with you. During a TED Talk, Alex Kipman used it to virtually meet with a colleague in front of a Mars backdrop, but this lab demo from Microsoft Research shows something a bit more realistic. That is, so long as you’re wearing one of the $3,000 augmented reality headsets.The setup is in an incredibly controlled environment (the remote location and where the video hosted by Microsoft Research’s Shahram Izadai are laid out pretty similarly), but it definitely shows the potential of using the device as a means of long-distance communication. You can even record a portion of a holoportation session and play it back, shrinking it down to size to fit on your coffee table. It’s pretty neat! But it’s still incredibly early. Artifacts resulting from compression or motion tracking are still present, a reminder that this is still a prototype, and break the illusion a bit.Check out the picture-in-picture shots and you’ll see the somewhat flickery and translucent images that go part and parcel with the headset at this point. Despite that, it’s hard to not get at least a little excited for a future where real-time holographic meet-ups with a loved one (or a zombie) exist. Enroll Now for Freelast_img read more
