EELUS: 10A — A DECADE WITH THE BLADE

zaxs EBook1640

Bringing together elements of sci-fi, fantasy and horror seen in film, comic books and pop culture of his own generation, Eelus’s paintings and assemblages are also informed by 18th and 19th century artists like William Blake and Aubrey Beardsley (rebellious and revolutionary in their time) and how their works express the erotic, the macabre and the inescapable forces of nature. Themes of love, loss, truth, lies and the fear and excitement of the unknown are cut through his intricate works with the patient and skilful handling of his scalpel.

Titan’s seasons make sharp turn

Titan vortex L,0

A true-colour image of the south pole vortex observed in Titan’s atmosphere at about 200–300 km altitude, as seen during a Cassini flyby of Saturn’s largest moon on 27 June 2012. Since equinox in August 2009, the seasons have been changing, becoming spring in the northern hemisphere and autumn in the southern hemisphere. The formation of the vortex over the south pole indicates the effect of the changing seasons on the circulation pattern in Titan’s atmosphere, specifically with cooler air sinking down from warmer, high altitudes. The images were obtained with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera at a distance of approximately 484,000 kilometres from Titan.
