  • Интересно, а принцы в курсе, что я понаехала? 🤷‍♀️ Хотя знаете история основателя у местечка странная. Ну их принцев, сначала женяться, потом головы рубят. Такие непостоянные. Если коротко колледж #christchurch был основан в 1546 тем самым шалунишкой королём Генрихом VIII о ком снят сериал Тюдоры. И он один из самых больших в Оксфорде.

  • There exist two female mallard duck portraits, amongst many male, on exhibition in All Souls College, Oxford. The females feature in a triptych painting which depict the college staff in the kitchen. One is a mother with her ducklings and the other, a corpse pinned to the wall.
.
On commissioning this portrait, my client had recently visited Vienna and he had come across this portrait of Teresa Feodorowna Ries, a pioneering artist working around 1900 in a man’s world. My client asked that I channel Teresa’s attitude through the female mallard, in an attempt at gender rebalancing within the college, and so here is some more progress on (what I hope is) a defiant duck..

  • "Ξεκίνησα σοφά με έναν χάρτη, και έκανα την ιστορία να ταιριάζει". J.R.R. Tolkien

Οι περιπλανήσεις σε φανταστικές τοποθεσίες είναι σύνηθες στοιχείο πλοκής στη λογοτεχνία του φανταστικού, και σε όλες τις ιστορίες του Καθηγητή Τόλκιν η γεωγραφία παίζει κεντρικό ρόλο.

Ο Τόλκιν βάσισε τη Μέση-γη του σε μια νοσταλγική ιδέα μιας μεσαιωνικής Αγγλίας, για να κατασκευάσει τον "δευτερεύοντα κόσμο" του. Οι αναλυτικοί χάρτες που ζωγράφισε ο ίδιος έρχονται να τονίσουν αυτή τη σχέση πραγματικού και επινοημένου.

Οι λεπτομερέστατοι χάρτες της φωτογραφίας είναι από τον Άτλαντα της Μέσης-γης, "Τα Ταξίδια του Φρόντο" της Barbara Strachey. Βασίζονται στους χάρτες και τα βιβλία του Τόλκιν, και περιλαμβάνουν ακόμη και αναφορές στην κουλτούρα των Χόμπιτ, όπως πιθανές τοποθεσίες για μεσημεριανό.

I wisely started with a map, and made the story fit." J.R.R.Tolkien

Journeys through invented lands are a popular story structure in fantasy literature, and in all of Tolkien's books, geography plays a central part in the reader's experience. 
As Peter Hunt points out, "Middle-earth is a secondary world that borrows heavily from England", and detailed maps contribute to this relationship between real and imaginary landscapes. 
Tolkien himself drew several maps of his fantasy world.
The maps shown here are from Barbara Strachey's Middle-earth atlas, "Journeys of Frodo". They trace Frodo's journey in excruciating detail, featuring even Hobbit-culture references, such as possible locations for "lunch".

  • Have you heard about this year's Nobel Prize winners? 🥇 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There were three, Sir Peter from Oxford University, William G Kaelin, Jr from Harvard University and Gregg L Semenza from Johns Hopkins University. Together they discovered the key mechanisms that our cells use to detect and respond to low oxygen levels, known as 'hypoxia'.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How doe this relate to you? The human body needs the right amount of oxygen to function and survive. When our blood has too little oxygen, our kidneys send signals to boost red blood cell production to carry more oxygen.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Want to win the Nobel Prize someday? Learn how you can gain admission to a top university, setting you up for a lifetime of success. Click the link in the bio!

  • Almost time to head home for Christmas! It’s been almost two years since I’ve been back to England and I can almost guarantee it will rain the entire time but I’m kind of excited?
