EssJay in NZ

This short documentary from Channel Four Docs shows a Longhorn being brought to the slaughterhouse. Suddenly the vegetarian option seems more appetizing, when you see how animals are actually killed. An air pressure bolt gun, similar to the one used by the psychopath in the film “No Country for Old Men”, is used and although this causes instant death with no pain, there is a certain chilling feeling in seeing it used. Do not watch this video if you are squeamish. You can view the documentary here.

Planes and Birds
Dark Mirror is a video installation by Mexican artist Carlos Amorales, showing at the Irish Museum of Modern Art from 27/02/2008 to 11/05/2008.
There is a strange hypnotic quality of the piano performance which adds to
the apocalyptic scenes of doom portrayed by animated video. The animation
is based on the graphic work of Andre Pahl. Its a double projection with the
screen suspended in a central position on the upper landing of the IMMA.
One side shows the animation and the other side shows a video of the reflection
of the pianist in the polished grand piano, as he plays the score. Worth a look.
