New splash page design. Because I suffer from Obsessive Splash Page Redesign Disorder (O.S.P.R.D.). Yup.

... and buy my bookies, goddamnit!

Oh, and please allow me a final word of wisdom:

Watch π. It's like watching Herr K.& Gustav Meyrink collaborating on a remake of Eraserhead.

And if that's not enough to convince you: Clint Mansell, Orbital, Autechre, Aphex Twin, Roni Size, Massive Attack, David Holmes, Gus Gus, Banco de Gaia, Psilonaut and Spacetime Continuum were responsible for the soundtrack... mmhmm...

Also, if you feel like contributing to my presentation on Matisse's still life Intérieur aux aubergines at the end of this month, this is your final chance. I'll even make you a personal papier découpée à la Matisse if your contribution is of any interest for my work.
