Poetry Clock: 6 is for blossom

6 is for blossom

A 8’x8′ word clock that tells the story of passing time.
Text co-written by Mouna Andraos with Emilie Grenier, inspired by a text by German poet Herman Hesse (“Eloge de la viellesse). At any given time, 3 words are lit up, one for the hour, one for the minute and one for the second, endlessly re-writing new sentences for every second that passes.

Logophobia: The S from Hell

THE S FROM HELL is a short documentary-cum-horror film about the scariest corporate symbol in history – The 1964 Screen Gems logo, aka ‘The S From Hell.’ Built around interviews with survivors still traumatized from their exposure to the logo after shows like Bewitched or The Monkees, the film brings their stories to life with animation, found footage, and dramatic reenactments. 

Further studies in Logophobia 


The image you see on the above television screen may seem innocent enough and not scary at all, but to many of us who watched television as small children in the mid 1960’s through the early 1970’s, it was the most frightening thing on TV. In exteme cases, it caused nightmares and prevented the viewing of programs that used the logo-which was shown after the closing credits.
