Very cool. I'm also surprised that you knew what Solaris was. I used to live in Poland, and Lem is still popular. They have vending machines with just his books in them on the street. I really like your work by the way, it makes me stop and think which is something a lot of artists aspire to but can't reach, me included.
thanks. I've read the book a long time ago, and seen the two films (Tarkovsky's - my first of his - and the newer version with George Clooney) and was impressed by rather different things in both but impressed overall
I actually did my theater stage craft project on Solaris, I put some of the sketches in my gallery. I haven't seen Tarkovsky's film, but I did see the one with Clooney. I liked the movie, but not as Solaris, primarily because it focused more on the romance than on Solaris itself. I always figured that the romance in the book was to show off an aspect of Solaris, not for Solaris to show off an aspect of the romance. Ahhh, but that's just me being nit picky ( then again, Lem didn't see the movie, but he wrote an article about it with a flare of annoyance because he found out it was romance centric). Solaris the book isn't perfect either, so who am I to judge?
