Description

The Holy Grail
Harry Lange's complete unseen archive

This stunning tome is a previously unseen look behind-the-scenes at the making of this most legendary of science fiction classics. It is an in-depth examination of the complete, largely unpublished archive of art director Harry Lange’s designs, concepts, roughs and photographs.
Lange’s strikingly realistic designs created an extraordinary vision of the future. By releasing this unpublished archive and explaining its significance, the book takes the reader/viewer on a journey deep into the visual thinking behind 2001, for the first time ever – visual thought that might actually work.
The book is about the process, as well as the finished product. It examines how Harry Lange’s experience with NASA fed into the innovations of the film. It includes rejected designs, concepts and roughs, as well as the finished works. It reveals how the design team was obsessed with things that actually might work. The book illustrates several innovations that were science fiction in the 1960s but have since become science fact, including a ‘newspad’ designed by IBM, which bears an uncanny resemblance to today’s iPad. The remarkable designs for 2001 created a credible vision of the future.

Description

London’s Graffik Gallery in Portobello Road is establishing itself as the new shrine for the best breed of British urban artists, offering a rejuvenated exhibition space to accommodate street art shows for the current and new wave generation of graffiti spraying wizards. It is on a mission to provide a new and alternative environment for exhibiting art to the traditional gallery format, transforming static work into multi-media and performance-oriented events.

Graffik Gallery has been going for almost two years and collaborates with many leading British street artists such as Grafik Warfare, SNUB23, Dan Baldwin, Goldie, Schoony, T.wat, Funky Red Dog and Grafter. All artists are at the pinnacle of edgy UK street art and showcase "thought provoking" landmark pieces at the gallery. Artists are given almost complete control when curating their shows, captivating hundreds of visitors through displaying cutting-edge creations.

“Graffik Gallery’s open door policy has broken down the barriers normally associated with stuffy gallery type settings. Artists and customers mingle freely sharing and collaborating, with live painting and graffiti lessons held in our infamous backyard space. The aim of the gallery was to give street art lovers the opportunity to own and hang iconic urban artworks in their homes whatever their budgets. The fantastic range of products available has achieved this aim” say Ollie (Gallery Curator) and Franco (Sponsorship, Press & PR)
