  • Saul bass

    The fab Design Museum in London is having a Saul Bass on Film exhibition.

    To say the mans work is iconic is an understatement. From July 17th-10th October. Should be a nice.

    Oh fantastic&#33; Hope there&#39;s a nice shiny Saul Bass book to go with it. Better get some moolah together...

    Cor blimey, their website&#39;s a bit much&#33; Thought they were supposed to know something about design...

          chance for another plug from me . . .

          . . . The same team who brought you &#39;Point 2 Point&#39; at the Big Chill last year ( &#39;Vanshing Point vs &#39;Zabriskie Point&#39; ) bring you &#39;Bug Planet&#39; [ This Sunday at Ashton Court Festival, Bristol, 7pm ] a vj piece using &#39;Phase VI&#39; and &#39;Microcosmos: Le peuple de l&#39;herbe&#39; and others . . .

          &#39;Phase VI&#39; was Saul Bass&#39; 1973 directorial debut, a strange horror/sci-fi about a colony of intelligent ants. It was also written by someone called &#39;Mayo Simon&#39; &#33;

            the desing museum is a great building (and nice location) but if found the permanent collection being a bit disapointing for London standards...

            Let hope these kinds of exhibitions will change that ...

              Phase VI is great&#33; Stupid, but great. Though I think Andromeda Strain is cooler.

                Anybody know if it exists on DVD ? I saw it years ago on C4 and I&#39;ve never thought the same way about ants since..... creepy little film.
