One human body, one big plastic tube full of water, one shirt and a pair of trousers are the visual elements of this series, Corpus. Shape is the characteristic surface configuration of a thing; an outline or contour. Something distinguished from its surroundings by its outline. The contour of a person's body, the figure. Elegance is not something in addition to the shape, rather, it is a property that the human body possesses not by virtue, but in respect of its shape.
Tower of Babel.
For the one for whom life is a supreme reality, without it being a piece of evidence, what question can torment him other than the one pertaining to this dilemma:
Can we or can we not love life?
This uncertainty is unclear and delicious; but nonetheless it demands an answer. It is both charming and bitter not to know whether you love or don’t love life. You would
like not to say either a yes or a no, if only for the pleasure of not clearing a pleasant
uneasiness. A yes means a renunciation to imagine and feel another life; a no is fear of the illusion of other worlds.
Space and time are great inventions of the mind to help us comprehend the world.
But what could be the source in nature that led to the evolutionary development of these two tenacious and extremely useful perceptions?
Time has no independent existence apart from the order of events by which we measure it,
Human beings necessarily depend on "relative time," although an absolute time outside of this relativity exists. Likewise, absolute space exists because,
while objects may be moved in relation to each other, space itself cannot be moved.
Space express change, as change of position. Matter exists and moves through space. But the number of ways that this can occur is infinite. Movement
in space is reversible. Movement in time is irreversible.
"Like as the waves make toward the pebbled shore,
So do our minutes hasten to their end;
Each changing place with that which goes before,
In sequent toil all forward do contend."
Zoo Keepers | ZSL London Zoo
London Zoo is the world's oldest scientific zoo. It was opened in London on April 27, 1828, and was originally intended to be used as a collection for scientific study. It was eventually opened to the public in 1847. Today it houses a collection of 755 species of animals, with 15,104 individuals, from the smallest monkey to the tall giraffe, making it one of the largest collections in the United Kingdom. It is managed under the aegis of the Zoological Society of London, ZSL (established in 1826), and is situated at the northern edge of Regent's Park.
ZSL, as international conservation organization have more than four hundred people working behind the scenes leading the world of animal care, research and conservation in more than 30 countries around the world in projects to protect animals in their natural habitat.
The role of a zoo keeper is one of the most popular jobs involving animals. They have responsibility both to the animals and to the general public. Keepers provide daily care for a zoo's animals. Their routine involves cleaning enclosures, preparing food, providing fresh water and clean bedding and ensuring that animal enclosures are kept at the appropriate temperature and humidity. They also keep records on health, diet and the behaviour of the animals in their care and assist the vet when either preventive or curative treatment is needed.
Keepers also require good communication skills to be able to impart their enthusiasm, commitment and knowledge to the visitors. Keepers are an essential part of public education programmes, giving talks and participating and organizing events and activities for school groups and other interested parties. At ZSL London Zoo they are about 50 keepers. The zoo is open to visitors for few hours each day, but the animals are there 24 hours a day all year. The keepers need to be present all the time and some of them live at the zoo. The day starts early at 8am when a keeper's first task is to check that all the animals are well. The work is hard, and they work long hours and regular weekends.
Keepers are usually recruited initially for the summer season only (Easter-September). The best of these temporary keepers may be retained for permanent employment. After completing a six-month probationary period, new keepers begin a two-year flexible learning course leading to the City & Guilds Advanced National Certificate in the Management of Zoo Animals. This involves studying nutrition, enclosure design, hygiene and safety, breeding, transporting animals, diseases and the role of zoos in conservation, education and research.
ZSl London Zoo offer the “Keeper for a Day” experience which givesto people an opportunity to get up close and personal with some of ZSL’s most popular animals, for one day and also offers a unique insight into the day-to-day life of zoo keepers and their charges. Budding keepers can try their hand at tasks such as preparing food for animals, feeding the giraffes and the monkies, cleaning the penguin pool and going behind the scenes at the big cats. People have to pay a lot money for this experience.
