Hyperrealist Sculptor - Patricia Piccinini Patricia Piccinini (born in 1965 in Freetown, Sierra Leone) is an Australian artist and hyperrealist sculptor. Her art work came to prominence in Australia in the late 1990s. In 2003 she was selected as the artist to represent Australia at the Venice Biennale. Piccinini emigrated to Australia in 1972 with her family. She graduated with a Bachelor of Economics degree from the Australian National University or ANU, before training in Fine Art (majoring in drawing) at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne. Piccinini's mixed media works include the series Truck Babies, and the installation We are Family which was exhibited in Venice in 2003. Piccinini works with a wide range of media, including sculpture, video, drawing, installation and digital prints. Her major artworks often reflect her interests in issues such as bioethics, biotechnologies and the environment. Other Australian artists who work in a similar idiom are Martine Corompt, Sam Jinks and Ron Mueck. According to the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia, Piccinini has an ambivalent attitude towards technology and she uses her artistic practice as a forum for discussion about how technology impacts upon life. She is keenly interested in how contemporary ideas of nature, the natural and the artificial are changing our society. Specific works have addressed concerns about biotechnology, such as gene therapy and ongoing research to map the human genome... she is also fascinated by the mechanisms of consumer culture." Piccinini's work often anthropomorphises inanimate objects and presents them with a high degree of industrial finish, revealing the equal influence of 19th Century Surrealism and 20th Century advertising. Piccinini works with several fabricators to produce her sculptures. Fuente: wikipedia Author Web Site: http://www.patriciapiccinini.net/

El Dinero es Deuda I Dinero es deuda (del inglés Money as debt, aunque una traducción más adecuada sería dinero como deuda) es un documental producido por Paul Grignon, en que describe el proceso de creación de dinero y su historia. El documental presenta la mecánica de creación de dinero por parte de los bancos y explica mediante una historia de animación cómo se pasó del uso exclusivo de monedas al uso de billetes, y posteriormente a las cuentas digitales, la supresión del patrón oro, el sistema de reserva fraccionada, y las consecuencias, como una inevitable inflación. La historia de los Goldsmith El documental, para explicar la historia de los bancos, hace referencia a una ficticia familia de orfebres. Éstos comienzan a acuñar monedas de oro y darlas a sus vecinos para que las usen. Al tener éxito decide comenzar a repartir billetes, más cómodos. Entonces comienza a dar créditos en billetes. Sus conciudadanos, que creen que está prestando su oro, deciden retirar el que quede. Sin embargo, el oro sigue en el depósito, ya que había "inventado" el dinero. Entonces deciden que debe compartir su riqueza con los depositarios, ya que las nuevas leyes obligan a que al menos el 10% del dinero sea real (oro), por lo que las cuentas permiten la creación de nuevo dinero. Así, explica la devaluación causada por el aumento de oro disponible llegado de América. Sistema Monetario actual Con la derogación del patrón oro, el único límite para la creación de dinero "mediante la promesa de pagarlo" es el dinero preexistente. Por tanto, dado que el dinero se crea de cero con una deuda igual, el pago de todas las deudas supondría la desaparición de éste. Sin embargo, los intereses hacen que la deuda total sea mayor que el préstamo, por lo que es imposible, con el sistema monetario actual, que la totalidad de las deudas sean pagadas. Este hecho es también explicado en el documental Zeitgeist: Addendum. fuente: wikipedia Money as Debt is a short animated documentary film by Canadian artist and filmmaker Paul Grignon about the monetary systems practiced through modern banking. The film presents Grignon's view of the process of money creation by banks and its historical background, and warns of his belief in its subsequent unsustainability. The film was conceived by Grignon in 2002 as an introduction to a 5-hour video commission for United Financial Consumers. He prefaced his video lecture with a re-telling of The Goldsmith’s Tale in animation form titled Money as Debt. The Goldsmith's Tale is noted in the film as being "a brief and broadly allegorical history of banking" and should not be viewed as a complete or entirely accurate account of the history of banking. Expanded in 2006, it was Grignon's first full animation project. Much of the film presents the filmmaker's understanding of modern money creation in a fractional-reserve banking system. Other forms of money creation, such as quantitative easing, receive less attention. In the film's version, new money enters the economy through the indebtedness of borrowers, thus...
