That Bruegel painting of hunters returning in winter, the filmmakers go nuts for it. A sad rabbit on a stick & more. It’s like really in there, tonally— a male, disappointed group trudge towards a more lighthearted communal flurry, women and children full of fire upholding weird roofs doing the real work.
A moment ago I moved something (not particularly large) to the other side of the table and felt so old and immense and in control. Like a truck crunching on its path. I project white onto the floorboards. And isn’t this music from that ballet that always makes us? Indistinguishable from a folktale-pink shock
of pure quartz through the wall. Give me one irregular mark for my thigh to pit the year against. 16th century sound gets all over the daybed and you relocate your teeth to the opposite nipple. My thought in that moment it’s a brutal cave. Brightest bird, tailfeather, increasing gray line, fail me my distant mountain.

Thanks for the amazing response to the video in the last couple of days, it’s really blown us away. Some people have also made some really good points about the diversity of the acts involved and raised questions about what’s been included vs what hasn’t etc. There are tons of hugely influential artists and sub-genres that we haven’t included in this and our main aim was to create a mashup that was foremost entertaining to watch, contain it to around 15mins, for it to primarily work well musically (and in the form of a Facebook feed) and have examples of the evolution of mainstream rock over the decades rather than create a kind of definitive documentary of rock. We really hope that comes across and you guys enjoy the video for what it is. It would have been great for us to start earlier on and explore more of the influence of the early pioneers before Elvis, which we picked mainly because musically it makes a great sounding intro with The Yardbirds. As you guys can probably tell, more hours than we’d like to think about now went into working out this giant musical jigsaw and getting it to work harmonically at the same time, but in hindsight we’d have loved to have tried to get some of the incredible women in rock to sit within the mix and feature a few videos rather than just noting their influence. Thanks for all the love so far and the interesting points that people are making too - it’s all great to hear.

Há fotografias extraordinárias e depois há aquelas que nos tocam a sonhos daqueles que começam na infância e nos acompanham a vida toda. As fotografias de Benedict Grove para a NASA são desse género. Vale a pena ver a galeria da Wired e a do site do autor. E vale a pena também ler as palavras dele depois das imagens abaixo.
To me, there is no other organisation in the world that is more progressive, more exciting or stands more for the betterment of mankind and peace than NASA. In my opinion its the greatest organisation in the world, it involves, science, arts, design, engineering, manufacturing, passion, belief, education, information, creation, technology, always moving forward, always seeking answers and finding them then asking more questions. They educate us, inform us not only about the universe but about our planet too, and pass down technologies into our everyday lives.
I have spent the past seven years on this project with two more before it finishes in the a timely way with the launch of SLS and Orion in 2018. As that launches into a new era, so the full collection will launch as an exhibition and book.
Here is a very small selection of what has been produced so far, in no particular order other than working to NASA's schedule.
