Avatar

If you haven’t watched James Cameron’s latest sci-fi extravaganza, which is expected to spawn two more sequels, now is as good a time as any. Try the cutting-edge RealD 3D experience at selected cinemas, and try to sit further back from large screens.

Images of Dance

Photographer Dennis Ng captures instants of dance, which may typically appear as a flurry of quick movements and jumps – too fast for the human eye. In so doing, he may infer new meaning and create a new sensation from viewing these shots. Free admission.
