SCIENCE OF SCAMS

7 EPISODES.
DERREN BROWN UNCOVERING THE SCAMS IN SCIENCE : THE SUPER NATURAL, UFOS ETC.

"Everyone is fascinated by the paranormal. Subjects like UFOs, Tarot cards and ghosts excite people worldwide. And behind it all there’s a massive industry. There are books, magazines, TV shows, live events, even psychic phone lines and websites all profiting from our fascination with the unexplained. The paranormal industry makes millions of pounds every year. And yet there’s actually no solid scientific evidence that anything paranormal exists. Are we all just falling for a big psychic scam?

We have all had the experience of absolutely believing something which turned out to be untrue. That so-and-so hated us, that we were about to die, that we had our wallet with us when we left the house. Sadly, how deeply we believe something has no necessary correlation with how true it is.

Derren and his team have released 7 hoax videos which appear to be paranormal phenomena. In fact they’re all based upon real scientific principles and there’s nothing paranormal about them at all. Over the past few months that hoax footage has been posted over the internet in the attempt to find out if people would accept the footage as genuine or question it in an attempt to discover the real truth.

Can you find the hoaxes before we reveal the secret science behind scams?" - derrenbrown.co.uk

BAD ROMANCE

ONE WORD: ADDICTIVE

Lady Gaga has released the video for her new song "Bad Romance"
Thumbs up for taking on avant garde Alexander Mcqueen outfits and not only is it a fashion visual feast but the song is pretty catchy. I like the fact that the video is a little crazy with so many nice elements involved but one part in particular catches my eye, Gaga seems to have one scene where it looks like it should be a shoot set up for photographer David Lachapelle (who is amazing). Worth a watch.


DO YOU WANNA BE IN MY GANG?



T
his portrait represents resistance to material goods and staying true to ones self. This could be considered/ viewed as images in the models mind. His world, his vision, his thoughts.

Left - The giraffe on the left represents the 'gang leader' of different social groups, the people, the rest of us. This is represented by scale but does not embody the human form therefore it adds a different level of thinking/standard when compared to the centre model.

Right - This represents the material goods, things that corrupt, things that the model believe that it doesn't make a person complete. LOVE, MATERIAL GOODS, MONEY et al.

Centre - This represents the models alter ego, he told me that if he was an animal he would be a cat and i decided to choose a lion to represent him as i believe that lions are intelligent, natural born leaders and strong minded with great instinct. He stands proud and self assured with his ideas on life and what he wants.

The barriers represent his inner feelings towards the outsider world, he won't be tempted from anything that's to the left or right of him, The yellow box reinforce the line that things must not cross.

NEW NATION


Theme:
Nature, eutopia and merging the aesthetics of sophistication from
France and innovation from Great Britain. This design was influenced by
the two individual countries fashion styles (France - Classic and well
known designers // Chanel & Great Britain - Young innovative edgy
designers // Gareth Pugh) and inspired by the concept of 'a whole new
world'. I pictured a place where people had the opportunity to have a
fresh start, a place where it's completely white washed and ready for
someone to make their artistic mark to brighten it up. The focus is on
the aesthetics of simplicity and clean lines. Colour concept: Black and
white represents the classic side and the bold splash of color
represents the edgy modern side.
