Citizens of Herculaneum in the dock buildings, 79 AD
All of these people flocked to the harbor, thinking that the buildings would keep them safe, unable to get to boats in time to outrun the incredibly fast pyroclastic flow overrunning the town of Herculaneum. Today, you can still glimpse the terror these people must have gone through, as you approach Herculaneum by descending a hill made up of the sediment and ash which covered the land nearly 2000 years before. It is an incredibly humbling experience.

Qiu Minye has found a new way of recording time by removing the identity of an image and creating the exquisite shape, life and texture. The object is floating lightly in a soft space like a song. It equals to the existence itself, which makes us sigh for the nature and thus feel the gratitude to the artist for giving us the opportunity to experience the nature.

João Ruas recently had the chance to work on a screenprint film poster for the movie “Alien,” one of his dream projects. He certainly blew the final design out of the spaceship - it’s hauntingly beautiful. Of the process João said he started with the two beasts of the film, the xenomorph and… the cat. The screenprint will be available soon.
