About the Event

Champaca and Reliable Copy present the first public programme around the recently launched book ‘Still Life -mirrors and windows-’ by Mario Santanilla. The event will consist of a reading by the author of selected sections from the book, followed by a moderated discussion between the author and the audience.


Book Description:

The first Apollo moon landing. Jumbo, the elephant. The films of Chris Marker. The belly buttons of Adam and Eve. The story of the Utah teapot. The gaze of thermal vision. The virtual gamespace of ‘Journey’. The downloadable NASA 3D archive. The romantic landscapes of the American west. Toy Story and The Little Mermaid. The first video uploaded on YouTube. The nature of disguise. Moving across personal anecdotes, moments in history, cultural memory, and scientific did-you-knows, Still Life -mirrors and windows- takes the reader on a virtual journey across a range of sights and sites. At once factual and speculative, poetic and analytical, Still Life is a window that reflects and a mirror that pierces through - a gentle companion to our endless search for the limits of understanding.

Find the book on Champaca's website, www.champaca.in.
