Skeleton at London Dungeon found to be real
A skeleton at the London Dungeon’s popular “creepy crypt” exhibit has been found to be real.
It is believed that the bones could have been displayed at the attraction since it opened in 1975.
Now the skeleton has been found to be genuine, it must be licensed by the Human Tissues Authority at a cost of 2,000 pounds a year.
The remains, which include a rib-cage and backbone, have been named Kate - after model Kate Moss.
It is thought she might date from the early days of anatomical research when bodies were regularly smuggled in from the Far East
And staff now suspect another skeleton hanging in a gibbet cage might also be real. She is known as Twiggy.

Videorative Portrait of Randall Okita by Sergio Albiac
Sergio continues his impressive Processing work, demonstrating his latest example of digital video portraiture which now has a much expressive brushstroke style. The portrait is built with videos, applied with a digital brush, creating a painterly moving collage:
Here I try to create a new type of portrait, one that goes beyond physical appearances, more “realistic” as it renders the founding blocks of the intimate world: memories, relationships and emotions. It is also a comment on the art of traditional painting, but expressed in contemporary media: generative video and interactive installation. It is an evolutive type of portrait that can be fed with more video memories, increasing “likeness” as time goes by. Also, it is a kind of “data visualization” of the emotional life: the installation version of the work uses online access to Wikipedia to infer emotions tied to your memories and displays new and “subconscious” interpretations of the person portrayed.
I’ve tried to condense several metaphorical layers in a work that required me to develop a whole new application (in Processing) to “paint with meanings” instead of colors.

I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way (s)he handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.
In the souls of the people the grapes of wrath are filling and growing heavy, growing heavy for the vintage.
