Glimpses Of The USA

Set in the Buckminster Fuller geodesic dome Charles and Ray Eames produced a film over seven screens exhibiting North America as a humane,productive and socially inclusive place. They didnt focus upon the american supremacy but more as an utopian world. A country as an idea, providing an alternate view not right or wrong about society (their society). How does it relate to the rest of the world?

Charles Meecham, Joy Division Atmosphere

Saw this cover for the original 12" release of Atmosphere by Joy Division. The photograph that looks like it is taken at the edge of motorway is expressed in two halves. I find this photography that focuses on these peripheral subjects extremely engaging as a part of the everyday.
