Last night, we saw the new Matthew Barney film, which included his wife, Bjork. Having seen the Cremaster films, Barney's style remains distinct and similar. Drawing Restraint 9

It's a joy to watch, though there were the inevitable audience members leaving half-way through. Having spent some time in Japan this year, it was nice to spot some of the cultural nuances.

Discussions afterwards were about the distinctions between artists, inventors and designers.
