on-trend it s being released episodically every six weeks in two- to three-hour instalments The premiere episode arrived on 30 January episode two followed at the end of March and the next is set for May Dividing a title into chapters and publishing them in succession has become something of a phenomenon in the gaming industry in recent years It started as a low-risk alternative to the usual blockbuster release strategy ndash and of late has begun to yield many games that like Life Is Strange might never have been green-lit under the traditional system Simon Parkin a freelance writer on games for the New Yorker magazine believes the popularity of the episodic approach has been facilitated by the rise of digital distribution methods which have made it much easier and cheaper to release any number of titles Instead of pressing and shipping costly discs to brick-and-mortar stores publishers can now upload a title to online marketplaces like Steam and Sony s Playstation Store where players can download them instantly That ease of digital access has all but revolutionized the dissemination of games Calum Marsh 26 April 2015 Mon, 21 Sep 2015 23:55:18 +1000 The importance of

Factory ndash a Pictorial Epoch of Technology by Jakob Tuggener 1943 An unusual sequence contrasts lathes melting furnaces turbines and generators with single portraits of workers the sharp contours of a carved wooden mask or the natural resources of industrial energy such as sluices and waterfalls These images may be reminiscent of Rodchenko but they never seem apologetic or nostalgic about technological progress The book is rich in formal references while numerous little stories form pictorial narratives These include for example an almost cinematic sequence of a young woman called Berti who with blueprints under her arm rushes along beside a high brick fa ccedil ade before vanishing through a metal door The camera constantly shifts between Berti s face and the scenes that surround her Unlike many of his more politically motivated colleagues such as Paul Senn who concentrated on the world of workers and farmers Tuggener took many photographs of the wealthy During the 40s with almost post ndash Modern enjoyment he joined the rich and beautiful at their balls held in the Hotel Palace in St Moritz a place where war ndash profiteers met in the unreal quiet of the Swiss mountains Tuggener created a series of trance ndash like photographs which look like film stills depicting sparkling crystal glasses heavy silver cutlery and chandeliers bare shoulders and low ndash cut back d eacute colletages juxtaposed with a plate of German sausages shining with grease the exchange of flirtatious glances and brief hand contacts He also took superb images of fetishistic details such as an ornamented room key ambiguously held by slender fingers in a black velvet glove It is these minimal details which hint at the complex stories which lie at the heart of Tuggener s oeuvre Hans Rudolf Reust Translated by Imke Werner 2000 Issue 53 June ndash August 2000 Frieze Sat, 27 Apr 2013 10:30:31 +1000 Dara 211 Briain s Science Club The Story of Music Special guest James May
