Paolozzi's 'Head of Invention'

Paolozzi's sculpture Head of Invention is installed in front of the Design Museum on the Thames at Butler's Wharf, London (1989)
Sir Eduardo Paolozzi, KBE, FRA (7 March 1924 – 22 April 2005), was a Scottish sculptor and artist. 
I personally think that Paolozzi was a genius and a little crazy too which is about right being an artist! His work is certainly inspirational and I was captivated when I saw this sculpture outside the Design Museum in London that I had to not only capture it but put my mark on it. The images you will see here are of the Head of Invention with an artistic twist from E:thos Photographic, I hope you will enjoy them.
'Paolozzi was a major figure in the international art world working without compromise on his own interpretation and vision of the world around us. 
Paolozzi investigated how we can fit into the modern world to resemble our fragmented civilization through imagination and fantasy. By the dramatic juxtaposition of ideas in his work, he let us see the confusion as well as the inspiration'.

Passion in the Moments is now part of the Higher Calling Network!

E:thos Photographic is a Christian owned photography company and as such our 'ethos' and values are based on biblical principles. Whilst we are not a 'religious' blog in that the main content of this blog is not about religious views or practices; we believe that through our photography, reflections / writings and all we do we represent Christ in our conduct and subject matter being in line with what we fundamentally believe.  We are also of the opinion that a blog that is Christian owned and inspired should make a contribution to the Christian online media effort. With this in mind we have recently put forward our blog, Passion in the Moments to join the Higher Calling Network which is essentially a group of chirsitan bloggers sharing their faith in various ways as we do through photography here.

Our vision is that we will be able to show our readers a different side to Christianity which is about relationship and engaging people with like interests, ours being photography, and that through those interests we are able to share our faith, show love to other people, help the needy, downcast and broken hearted and be a light to those who are still trying to find their way. As such all that you see on our blog is inspired through our faith and we do not recognise a distinction between who we are and what we believe. We present imagery and text purely from a personal perspective and experience of life and faith and as such hope to present a realistic picture of what an ordinary Christian looks like, thinks, feels, struggles with experiences and how we deal with those issues. As well as the wealth of other things we get involved in and appreciate.

So we welcome our new Higher Calling Network readers / viewers and hope you enjoy the journey we have already begun through imagery and beyond...

As is fitting for the theme of this post, I found this video (below) and I was convinced! Its an interesting perspective on the challenges that Christians face today, please take a few minutes to watch it.

Many thanks Christian Blog Network
