Michelangelo Antonioni (1912 – 2007), was an Italian film director, screenwriter, editor, and short story writer. Best known for his “trilogy on modernity” —L’Avventura (1960), La Notte (1961), and L’Eclisse (1962). Antonioni ” redefined the concept of narrative cinema” and challenged traditional approaches to storytelling, realism, and drama. He produced “enigmatic and intricate mood pieces” and rejected action in favor of contemplation, focusing on image and design over character and story.

I am a Librarian. To be honest, I wouldn't want to do anything else. I have a strong background in architecture, computer technology, English literature, Internet applications, web site design, film studies and modern art. I would like to use this page to express my personal musings and experiences on news, pop culture, nature, art, science, technology and what ever becomes a curiosity.
