The Runners | Short Documentary

By on Oct 20, 2014

Directors Matan Rochlitz and Ivo Gormley released the short film, called The Runners, on 15 November 2013. Using a bike with a cart attached for the cameraman, the pair interviewed groups of runners through changing seasons. The idea came from Mr Rochlitz, who found that swimming at his local pool put him in a meditative state. The pair thought that running would work in the same way, so they decided to find out for themselves. In a piece published in The Guardian, Mr Gormley wrote that one interviewee had been “humbling” in his honesty about his determination to run a marathon for his father, who suffers from dementia. “He looked at us without questioning where we were from, or why we were interested. He just told us how he felt. In a situation in which he might otherwise be vulnerable and cornered, he was strong and clear. “That was the hope: that there was something about running...

CHAMPAGNE COUPE MOULDED FROM KATE MOSS’S BREAST LAUNCHED

By on Sep 30, 2014

English supermodel Kate Moss’s left breast has been immortalised in a Champagne coupe designed by painter Lucian Freud’s daughter. Taking Marie Antoinette as her inspiration, whose left breast was said to have served as the model for the first Champagne coupe in the late-18th century, British artist Jane McAdam Freud crafted the coupe from a mould of Moss’s left breast. The glass has an elongated, slender stem, while the outside of the bowl features an intricate Art Deco-inspired pattern and the base bears the model’s signature. “I was excited to participate in this project – what an honour to be alongside Marie Antoinette, she was a very intriguing and mischievous character,” Moss said. “Champagne is always associated with celebration and happy occasions and I had fun creating this beautiful coupe,” she added. McAdam Freud was commissioned by 34 Restaurant in London’s Mayfair to...
