While Solaris is considered the pinnacle of Tarkovsky's engagement with the fantastical, Stalker has its many defendants. Arguably the most accessible of Tarkovsky's films, this philosophical fable employs the roughest outlines of a novel by Soviet sci-fi writers Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. A mysterious Zone is said to contain a room that grants wishes; the Stalker will take you there for a fee, past military checkpoints and more obscure dangers. A clear imprint of this terse, laconic film is still felt in such apocalyptic hits as 28 Days Later. - by Robert Skotak

Who Is Giorgio de Chirico?

Giorgio de Chirico was born on July 10, 1888, in Volos, Greece, to an Italian family. His mother, Gemma Cervetto, was from a family of Genoa origin, but most likely she was born in Izmir. His father, Evaristo, was born on June 21, 1841 in the Büyükdere district of Istanbul.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
