R.I.P. H.R.Giger (1940-2014)I was shocked to learn today that Giger passed away just a day ago as a result of a fall. Most of you probably know that H.R. Giger is one of my favorite artists and a major influence on my work. (for those who don't know, check this out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.R._Giger and then watch Alien )R.I.P. H.R.Giger (1940-2014) by leothefox
I discovered Giger when I was 12 when I found his book Biomechanics in the Ventura, CA Barnes and Noble and was blown away by his universe of weird detail. I spent years after that collecting his books and aspiring to become him.
For a long time I was a huge fanboy and wanted to meet him, now I never will
His influence can be seen all over DA, for example in these

"Speak you too,
speak as the last,
say out your say.
But don't split off No from Yes.
Give your say this meaning too:
Give it the shadow.
Give it shadow enough,
Give it as much
As you know is spread round you from
Midnight to midday and midnight.
See how things all come alive-
By death! Alive!
Speaks true who speaks shadow.
But now the place shrinks, where you stand:
Where now, shadow-stripped, where?
Climb. Grope upwards.
Thinner you grow, less knowable, finer!
Finer: a thread
The star wants to descend on:
So as to swim down beliow, down here
Where it sees itself shimmer:in the swell
Of wandering words."
― Paul Celan
''We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from place to place to save things; because the shadow always follows. Choose a place where you won't do harm - yes, choose a place where you won't do very much harm, and stand in it for all you are worth, facing the sunshine.''
E.M. Forster, A Room with a View
How do you present the shadow?
In contributing, avoid presenting minimal shadows, because everything has a shadow, so therefore, it would be great if it is the overall impression of a shadow, or middle, well just don't minimal.
