Fantasy fiction has never been my favorite genre of literature. I prefer stories which describe real events or, at least, something that can possibly happen. However, there is one book, a post-apocalyptic novel, which has produced great impression on me, though I can not say that this impression was positive. Still, if you are not afraid to sink into the world of post-apocalyptic delirium and learn what will happen after the end of the world, I recommend you reading this story.
The book is called “The Road” and is written by an American author Cormac McCarthy. The circumstances of the disaster which has destroyed almost everything in the world remain unknown, and, honestly, you will not be interested in them much as the story will capture you from the first pages.
One of the most prolific and remarkable video artist is definitely Pipilotti Rist. I idolize her boldness and impudence she exposes every time during her work.
Pipilotti Rist was born in prosperous Switzerland. Aged twenty Pipilotti entered the Institute of Applied Arts in Vienna where she studied illustration and photography. When she was 35-years-old she participated in the Venice Biennial representing Switzerland. Since then she became pretty popular. Even though some of her works seem to be pretty strange one should accept it with humor and irony. Don’t be serious to judge her works as some do when see her installations and videos.
