The winter solstice occurred in the Northern hemisphere yesterday.
Crowds gathered at ‘Time and Space the Speed of Light’ on Cala Llentia, Ibiza, Spain. They were there to dance and celebrate in the rays of the setting sun and to witness the alignment of the shadows on the gold topped central column.
This major stone structure is the 51st land art structure in the ‘Rhythms of Life’ land art project. A series of connected stone drawings on the earth which span the globe and are visible from space.

Collision Course, A CM Film Production video installation project co-directed by Carmelo Musca and Garry Stewart, featuring a series of bodies colliding in extreme slow motion, has continued to tour Australia as part of Experimenta Recharge: The 6th International Biennial of Media Art.
It is currently being exhibited at The Lock Up in Newcastle, NSW, and will then move onto The Block in Brisbane, QLD.
Collision Course is also being screened at the Frankston Arts Centre in Victoria during August.

Collision Course is a study in movement produced by Australian Dance Theatre in collaboration with CM Film Productions (Perth).
Based on a concept developed by Australian Dance Theatre’s Artistic Director – Garry Stewart, the work features 48 extreme slow motion collisions between dancers, boxers, martial artists, gymnasts, football players and street culture enthusiasts.
The high-speed video, used to capture the collisions, manipulates time and perception through slowing down movement to such an enormous degree so that the smallest gesture becomes monumental. In each collision we witness in vivid detail the reconfiguration of faces, limbs and bodies as they collide against each other with impact.
The enormous elasticity of the body’s flesh and collagen is well beyond what can be perceived in real time but via this medium we are drawn into the secret world of the physics of our bodies in full flight and under stress
