Tyeb Mehta (1925 – 2009)

Tyeb Mehta passed away
last week. It is unfortunate that little more than blurbs were dedicated to a
man who was inarguably amongst India’s most powerful artists. Not surprisingly
though, far greater column-space and airtime with gushing reportage was
dedicated to his name when his works created records in auctions over the
years.

Looking at the larger picture, his
contribution to Indian art is indelible and he will remain a strong source of
inspiration for generations of artists and art-lovers to
follow.

And his name will be in print frequently:
auction records will continue to fall.

It sounds like something from a science fiction movie: Sensors are surgically
inserted in the brain to understand what you’re thinking. Machines that can

in Wisconsin recently announced the ability to “think” updates onto the Twitter
website. Locally, researchers at Washington University have developed even
deeper ways of tying humans and computers together.

For Eric Leuthardt, 36, a neurologist at Washington University Medical
School, it’s about taking our relationship with computers to the next level.

“The idea is to basically connect people with devices and machines through
their thoughts directly,” he said.

I put this together with a bunch of images I collected from various
sources (mostly 80’s videos on youtube if you must know). The song is called
“The Rider” by a group named The Pussycats. They never released an album, just a
few singles that can be found on theGirls In The Garage compilations. I like the way the song
cuts off somewhat mysteriously at the end…(tara-sinn)
