Earth, Space, and Life


   Earth: What is it like in a volcano crater during an eruption? Go to Geoff Mackley’s web site for some incredible videos and pictures from his project to get inside an active volcano on a volcanic island off of the Australian east coast.
   Space: From Kevin Margo is a short (8 minute) video, Grounded, about an astronaut stranded on an alien planet.
“One astronaut’s journey through space and life ends on a hostile exosolar planet. Grounded is a metaphorical account of the experience, inviting unique interpretation and reflection by the viewer. Themes of aging, inheritance, paternal approval, cyclic trajectories, and behaviors passed on through generations are explored against an ethereal backdrop.”
   Life: I first saw this animated short video several years ago and considering the content of the Grounded video I thought this would sort of compliment Grounded. The Beauty of Life is done by Moritz Bunk.
Get some tissues ready!
