Below is a blog of sorts documenting and sharing what PRISM index,
its artists, and inspirations are doing.
Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman created a wonderful short film about the life and work of artist John Baldessari. The film is narrated by Tom Waits and is told in the same playful, self-aware style of the artist himself. The filmmakers are coming off their great work with 2010′s Catfish and 2011′s Paranormal Activity 3. I can’t wait to see their new project, which is supposedly The Monkey Wrench Gang.
An introductory video to the power and purpose of illustrated science. The narrator gives a brief history of how art has been used over time to both educate and illuminate the public’s understanding of their own bodies and grow to appreciate them. It’s very beautifully animated and concludes with championing informative beauty, a valuable idea.
