Shooting stars


The shoot for the website went delightfully well, and delightfully pink. 

Lure hairdressers remarkably gave us the keys to their salmon palace. Art director Cat Sewell filled it with magnificently creepy floral ‘get well soon’ arrangements and medical equipment. Our actors Matthew and Zoe were suitably translucent, translating ‘casual jerking’ and ‘majestic soap opera bitch’ with great acuity. The pair of white mice huddled appropriately.

And so we have a hospital room for our comatose protagonist, and some very luscious footage for the website.

With enormous thanks to Rino Pontini at Lure, Cat Sewell, Christie Stott, Andy Lane, Matthew Kneale, Zoe Meager, Jonnie Leahy, Robbie Kohl, Matthew Gingold and Michael Baggot for their patience and talent.

The Inconstant

We are conducting some action research into Uncertainty, now that we are more comfortable with its centrality. Cliff hangers, dark matter, comas. Even the Fundamental Constant is under question. 

Thanks to our recent interviews with N-Body Simulation programmers, we have focused our minds on “decomposing the problem: working out what must be done first, which tasks may be done independently of each other, and which must be done in parallel, in order to complete the tasks with the highest efficiency”. 

This isn’t as easy as it sounds.

The script is nonetheless emerging – in a kind of furious symbiosis with the astronomical interviews – while we wrestle with our fear of quasars and affection for categories of collision.

And lunch with Kamahl.
