Light plate

10 minutes

Pasta-making stunningly distills the connection between nature and craft

Light Plate transforms the iconic, idyllic Tuscan landscape into a richly visual palette that contrasts the old with the new, and urban bustle with bucolic calm. Using hand-processed black-and-white film, the US filmmaker Josh Gibson treats the beauty of an Italian countryside and the sensuousness of the pasta-making process with a light, rhythmic touch to achieve a soothingly pleasing abstraction of nature and craft.

Shame on you

Unburdening ourselves online can feel radical and liberating. But is baring and sharing all as emancipatory as it seems?
