"The Niagara series initially came from a number of recollections: childhood visit to the falls, an old Ben-Hur picture book and Henry Hathaway's 1953 film Niagara. Niagara Pair is in response to the recent Ferguson unrest."

In the film, Foulkes has the charisma of Robin Williams, the looks of Clint Eastwood, the neurosis of Woody Allen and a singer/songwriter voice of Tom Waits. Put all these things in a meat grinder and it's a no-brainer that Foulkes stands apart from the Ferus brethren in this feature documentary film.

It's not monumental work but it is heroic. It holds fast to the present while it focuses on the future in the face of grin-and-bear-it doldrums. It shows the episodic nature of the world, a given, behind which lies an unchanging essence of I can.

One Night Only: Lisa Adams: As It Appears To Be, Directed by Juri Koll

The 54-minute documentary directed by Juri Koll presents a portrait of an artist who forged an individual, burn-the-ships path. It shows why her work is unique. It shows why it has integrity. And it shows, if you take a long-term view of things, why it will resonate far beyond the era in which it she made it.

In Times of Pain, Illness, Suffering, and Dying, 'That Which Is Shareable Is Bearable'

As writers themselves, you'd think that the Kellers would appreciate the power of writing as a process for understanding life and coming to terms with painful experiences. Writing is a powerful way of connecting with others. Writing helps us reach inward -- and upward -- to find the holy, the numinous, the transcendent.

Smart cultural observers will consider what happens to empathy when human beings learn intimate and heartbreaking things about one another, but never come close to meeting face-to-face. Can we suffer with someone we don't actually know?

I've worked at a newspaper, and have interviewed at them since the advent of social media. Some of the Twitter-related questions asked in one interview sounded like Unfrozen Caveman Editor, but maybe that crew has caught up by now. The medium isn't slowing down for anyone to catch up.

The Exquisite and the Abject: The 'Second Life' of Lisa Adams

Tracey Harnish | Posted 06.25.2013 | Arts
Tracey Harnish

"Second Life," is the title of Lisa Adams' show of new work at CB1 Gallery. The ambiguity between the show's title and the imagery is no coincidence. Second Life is actually the name of an online virtual world, where users, aka avatars, interact with each other in different social settings.

Artists' lives, and they way they survive, are as important as their work, because their work is the result. We get to see the work, and we can feel the life. 2013-04-03-kollpull.jpg

This hauntingly beautiful film is long, nearly three hours, but captivating. It deftly avoids the usual pitfalls and stereotypes of depicting an artist's motivation, soul-searching, life and work. It ends too abruptly, however.
