Forget the room of one’s own - write in the kitchen, lock yourself up
in the bathroom. Write on the bus or the welfare line, on the job or during meals, between sleeping or waking. I write while sitting on the john. No long stretches at the typewriter unless you’re wealthy or have a patron - you may not even own a typewriter. While you wash the floor or clothes listen to the words chanting in your body. When you’re depressed, angry, hurt, when compassion and love possess you.
When you cannot help but write

Artur Sochan

Photographers usually catch the bug of their art reading magazines or going to exhibitions. However, Artur Sochan fell in love with argentic photography by discovering the macabre portfolio of a family friend, a forensic photographer… The morbid crime scenes and cadavers he then saw have left their print on his future art as a photographer and film director.

Born in Poland in 1970, the Warsaw artist is indeed fascinated by bodies, gloomy places and broken objects. The flesh of his models is pallid, cold and rough just like the one of a corpse. The background, minimalistic abandoned places, reminds of lunatic asylums or prisons, even dissection rooms. Death is surrounding… Added to those disturbing elements is the vintage treatment Sochan gives to his pictures, succeeding to create a very spooky mood. And yet, life is at the heart of his work, him who dreams to shot “the perfect portrait of a soul”. First, it is present with the eroticism of the nude bodies, with discreet tattoos and playful masks. Behind the fetichism hides questions of identity and personality. Is it madness, is it freedom, is it love or lust? The more intricate the costumes get (due to the fascination of Sochan for Mexican and Indian ethnology), the more mysterious and troubling the portraits are, with bold body art, mystic headdress and the scary broken dolls, reminding of Voodoo and witchcraft.

I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”

In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, North America, Australia, western Asia and most of the Pacific Ocean will be treated to a full lunar eclipse in which the moon takes on a reddish hue as it passes through the Earth’s shadow.
We borrowed this moon image from The moon hoax, or a discovery that the moon has a vast population of human beings, an 1859 book that compiled the original six articles published in The Sun in 1835. A century before H.G. Wells’s The War of the Worlds induced panic about a Martian invasion of New Jersey, these six articles helped grow The Sun’s readership dramatically and establish it as a major New York newspaper. Read more about the fascinating history of The Great Moon Hoax on our blog. Rather listen to a podcast? The memory palace has an episode that might be of interest.
