BRIAN COOPER A random visit to Brian Cooper’s optical illusionism is recommended to enjoy an all access pass to the multifarious stages of reality flips and shifts not included in your average free downloadable user manual. There is evidence of precession in axial tilt, but this change occurs on much longer time-scales and does not involve relative motion of the spin axis with respect to the planet. However, in what is known as true polar wander, the solid Earth can rotate with respect to a fixed spin axis. Research shows that during Cooper’s last few hundred paintings, sculpture and installations, a true polar wander of some 360° spins have occurred, but that no super-rapid shifts in the Earth’s pole were found during this period. While you adjust your seatbelt and wait for your cue, please enjoy Earth Like Planet’s new tunes: Pry; Nature of Things; Remind Me How, Again (free); Let the Drugs Help Them Out; In Your Hands, and Patternicity.
