BEIJING NEEDS PHOTOSHOP, SAYS SARAH MORRIS
Artist Sarah Morris is making another film, but the subject in front of the camera seems to be coming out more than a little blurry. In an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Morris spoke about her experiences making a new film about the Olympic Games in Beijing. The problem is not the camera focus but rather the pollution. Says Morris, "If you want to get a clear picture of the 'bird's nest'—the main stadium designed by Herzog and de Meuron—then you have to use Photoshop, for example, because of the air pollution." No word on whether Photoshop will help the athletes make their way around the track.
