The printing press: was the first one of many communication mediums, changing how information was collected, stored, retrieved, criticized, discovered, and promoted. The Automobile: Henry ford said “You can have any color as long as it is black,” They permitted rapid transportation of people. The Television: John Logie Baird filed his first patent in 1923, for a device that yielded an eight-line image. The Laser: Forty years after Einstein drew up the concept of the stimulation of light waves, a doctoral student earned a patent on Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) and the resulting beam to cut, heat and measure. Doctors adored lasers because they simplify and quicken cosmetic and eye surgery. Scientists love lasers for their precision and power and of course The Internet California, darling: A secret Pentagon project, the Internet served as a communication network that would remain intact, even if several of its strands were broken.
Inventions are IRREVERSIBLE’S incredible source of inspiration. You simply have to be willing to be all you can be, contributing all that is yours to create and be willing to think outside the box.- Baldessari has mentored countless artist and he tells students-, “Art comes out of failure” “You have to try things out. You can’t sit around, terrified of being incorrect”My awareness of what I have been afforded in life feeds my desire to challenge new channels for our book. My grandmother was my greatest mentor, I can only think of her as the incredible strong woman who never complained – she never had a car, no running water at home, etc – however the impact that her education and her strength brought to my life makes what IRREVERSIBLE is today a strong universal vision, a documentary about our generation, a special project that welcomes constantly changes.
I have great respect for people who create the things that keep changing/shaping the world. It is said that necessity is the mother of invention- it is also the mother of all forms of creativity. While developing Henry Bermudez story on his personal quest gave me the opportunity to feel pride; -we both are originally from Venezuela and from the same hometown Maracaibo- the incredible stories about the Amazon and the influence of mythology on his works immediately make me feel something special, I responded to his works with fervor without having any knowledge or previous connection to it. -I must share I avoid reading critics- I do not want to get influence by what others think. I am convinced that a great work speaks for itself and we may connect to them or not at all. our greatest pride is having the privilege to be able to share the world artist intimacies-. Alexandre’s letter is a work of art itself, sincerity, kindness, honor I know this story will become an incredible long lasting documentary on Black Sun (Alex we must say the translation gave us a tremendous challenge, trying to be as loyal to the original as possible, so people could understand it is a REAL letter). And I hope it becomes power for many – not because of his ordeal in launching the work- but because it inspires us to never to give up.

Lorna Marsh was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1949. Although Marsh’s artistic vision may be grounded in her classical training she has developed a distinctive style that transcends standard interpretative mechanisms. She is a figurative expressionist who blends symbolism, surrealism, and expressionism that reflect a universal dialogue that addresses man’s destructive relationship to himself and his environment. Marsh has had important solo shows at the Florida Museum of Hispanic and Latin American Art, Miami, Florida, the Jacabo Borges Museum, Caracas, Venezuela, and the João Ferreira Gallery, Cape Town, South Africa, among others.
Artist Maki Hashizume, Japan, uses three concepts to reach the viewers:
1-the relationship between art and viewers,
2-seeing and feeling, &
the artist has been trying to break the boundary between art and our society by blending art into our life invisibly.Having an artistic mind is the real meaning to art and the mind is the best art work in the world. The mind is stronger than any other figurative works such as paintings, sculptures, videos and so on. Everybody has received artistic sense as a gift from God when born. Due to that, we unconsciously sense colors and figures. Based on that anyone can clearly understand; these concepts.
Japanese culture and the taboo of emotion:
The Japanese hesitate to show their emotion fully to others, came from Bushido which is the spirits of the samurai. Most Japanese have lost their Bushido spirit.
Bushido dictates not showing emotion under any circumstances. The current problems now facing Japan are due to its cultural deformation.
This cultural deformation was caused by losing the spirit, the core of a human being, through modernization of life styles. The Japanese have quickly developed their culture after World War2, but modernizing life has actually removed their culture. Scenery in Japan has become that of a concrete jungle, and our modern life only created vanity. After so many people lost the sprit of Bushido, we created chaos instead.
In the end, artist Maki Hashizume would like to replace that which has lost by producing public work.
