Durban Art: Opening at artspace today and running until February 16 is Microgaphs by Deryck Healey. The Micrographs are a series of paintings that he made as a direct response to Charles Eames’s film Powers of Ten which illustrates a sleeping man at a picnic. The film takes the viewer on a journey out to the edge of space and then back into a carbon atom in the hand of the man at the picnic, all in a single shot. The exhibition opens at 6.30 pm with the opening address by Peter Machen. For more information, phone 031 312 0793. Gallery hours are 10 am to 4 pm Monday to Friday and 10 am to 1 pm on Saturdays.
