Bill Viola

I first got introduced by this work when we did the crazy party thing at the start of the year. At first i did not really understand his work that much, but it has gradually grown on me. He is an artist that studies the boundaries of life and death. The reason for this is that when he was young he almost drowned. Viola Aims to recreate this feeling through his art, which i find looks eerie and beautiful.

Portishead- There was a song that i found by the band Portishead it is called 'Only you.' The video is amazingly hypnotic it appears as if someone is floating in water but there is no water around. I am really intrigued on how this effect was achieved.
