Re:FACE, Anchorage Version 2010 | Tmema (Golan Levin & Zachary Lieberman) Re:FACE [Portrait Sequencer], Anchorage Version (2007-2010: Golan Levin and Zachary Lieberman) is a playful interactive video installation commissioned by the Municipality of Anchorage 1% for Art Program, for permanent display over the entryways of Anchorage East High School, Alaska. Based on the Victorian "Exquisite Corpse" parlor game, and our previous small-scale prototype, the Re:FACE installation records and dynamically recombines brief video slices of its participants' mouths, eyes and brows. In this version of the installation, six large LCD screens — four over the school's North entrance, and two over the South — present an endless remix of face videos created by the students at East High. Students record their face videos using the project's custom Capture Station, located in the school's library.

Hillsborough disaster and its aftermath 19 December 2012Last updated at 12:18 ET Although it remains the name of the ground of one of England's famous old football clubs, since 1989 the word Hillsborough has more strongly evoked Britain's worst sporting disaster. On 15 April 1989, at the start of an FA Cup semi-final, a crush on the steel-fenced terraces of Sheffield Wednesday's stadium resulted in the death of 96 Liverpool fans and left hundreds more injured. The inquiry into the disaster, led by Lord Justice Taylor, established the main cause as a failure of police crowd control.

How New Platforms, Streaming Media Change the Equation for Indie Filmmakers Traditionally, there were three main types of distribution for the work of independent filmmakers: theatrical, broadcast and straight to DVD. Most filmmakers hoped for a combination of all three. But everything has changed. Obituary: Jacques Lecoq - Arts & Entertainment He was also a taskmaster who accepted nothing less than perfection from those who worked with him and the stories of his severity are legendary. Those who could not achieve his standards had good reason to dislike him. Born in Paris in 1921, he was interested in the theatre from early youth, but also in sport and his particular art lay in combining the two, teaching physical education when still a teenager and applying yoga principles to the art of movement, so that the body was always thought of as a whole, moving as one: mind, muscles, flesh and bone a single harmonious entity. He persuaded Jacques Copeau, inheritor of the mantle of Stanislavsky, Gordon Craig and others revolting against the naturalist theatre, to allow him to introduce body movement into the training of his actors. Jean-Louis Barrault's famous mime scenes in Les Enfants du Paradis (1945) are a good example of the results he was able to achieve. John Calder
