A haunting portrait of a man who is equally a paedophile as he is an extremely dull man.
The trailer for Michael is as chilling as the film
itself. Michael is filmed coming in to his empty house and going
about his life. His whole existence screams bland until we get a
taste that something is not quite right - he opens a sound
insulated door and we see the dinner for two that Michael is
Directed by Austrian, Markus Schleinzer and influenced by the
real-life case of Josef Fritzl and Natascha Kampusch,
Michael tells the story a paedophile of the same name who
Cinema is an art form particularly suited to the exploration and representation of revolutions and revolutionaries. This short series presented and introduced by Dr Gerry Smyth, Reader in Cultural History at Liverpool John Moores University, offers three compelling examples culled from modern Irish history.
The possibility of a film about one of Ireland’s most mythologised revolutionary figures had been kicking around Hollywood for a number of years before Jordan got the green light to write and direct it. Clearly from the ‘Irish’ wing of his bifurcated oeuvre, the film demonstrates little of…
Michael's work concerns itself with questions of reality, including those of philosophical realism and philosophy of mathematics, among others. He is also interested in the audiences preconception of what art is and it's place in the world, and think about this when producing work. "I like to experiment with the boundaries people create between themselves and art and the world around them. The ambiguous 'Total Achnovarchist Ordinal Form' movement has had a big influence on my work- largely due to their philosophical politics, artistic influences and the intrigue surrounding the organisation…
Using the eponymous game as a starting point, Swedish artist Michael Johansson's Tetris uses everyday objects to reference a phenomenon brought on by playing the puzzle game for too long. Commonly known as Tetris Syndrome, avid players report seeing Tetris blocks in objects all around them. Blurring the limits between 'real space' and 'game space', Johansson's piece, constructed from found objects, articulates a shared and puzzling trick this computer game plays on our minds.

Michael is a Liverpool based artist currently exploring ideas of art perception, with character- driven narrative work, and influences rooted in comics and film. Here he describes his work Good Morning, Mr Phelps which is on display at FACT. "The character's positions and appearances aim to propel the themes of the narrative to the awareness of the audience. The format of a poster that exists to promote something dictates certain guidelines and requirements. Instead of fulfilling them, the need for these requirements has been exploited in favour of viral marketing realism"
Gallery 2 Michael Bell-Smith creates imagined or fabricated dream-spaces. His two painterly wall-mounted pieces Glitter Grade (2007) and Glitter Bend (2008) each creates feelings of inter-galactic travel, skimming over the surface of the earth or soaring over an electrified cityscape.
The two pixilated landscapes are similar, but while Glitter Grade is composed of ordered rows, Glitter Bend is curved, suggesting a radical shift in scale. This simple bend, coupled with the minimal, reduced structures of both compositions, suggests how representation can be built from smaller abstract elements …
