The Distinct Sound of Laughter (An Exclusive Interview with DONT FRET & EDWIN)

It was 2015 when Chicago-native DONT FRET and London-based EDWIN, two artists for whom social commentary forms integral part of the human expression we know as Art, established a link between the unheard voices of two countries than would soon go through parallel political and social convulsions. Their collaboration, their bridge, serves both as a reminder and a beacon of hope, in what seems an ever-increasingly divided and isolationist backdrop, that no matter where you are from, where you are, and whatever labels are being forced upon you, humanity is and will always be a shared essence and, as such, a shared cause that will always ring True.

They offer testament of their collaboration at Unit 5 Gallery (London), in an exhibition that runs from the 10th of November until the 2nd of December 2016. WONDERLANCER interviews DONT FRET and EDWIN on this important shared project, their work as individual artists and more.

Exclusive Interview with The Musically Irresistible GEMMA RAY

MOJO describes GEMMA RAY as ‘wondrous’, NME says she’s ‘untouchable’, and a host of other publishers and broadcasters have nothing but words of praise and reverie for her songwriting. From experience, we can say that she stole our hearts, and ran away with them on a Motorbike. At least she left us with Milk For Your Motors. Ah, Ray, you wicked songstress, ‘the road’ is long… We’ll see each other again.

In the meantime, may the world know about the words we exchanged.

The Digital Self (An Exclusive Interview with Renowned Psychologist DR. TOMAS CHAMORRO-PREMUZIC)

What is the motivation behind mass digital social networking?
What feeds our digital self?

Are we to expect a decline in this activity and therefore a stagnation of social networking, any time soon, specially due to present privacy concerns and the difficulty faced by our brains to healthily filter such a massive flow of information and interactions, or, on the contrary, is this just the beginning of a complete break from how we have interacted with each other as a species up to this point?

We interviewed one of the most prolific writers in social science of his generation, Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, to try and get some answers, or at least, some knowledgeable hypothesis on the subject.

All Hail ‘Vikings’ (An Exclusive Interview With Creator & Writer MICHAEL HIRST)

MICHAEL HIRST was headed for an academic life, having achieved his First Class Joint-Honours Degree in English and American Literature by the University of Nottingham, and completed his studies on Henry James at Trinity College, Oxford…

But Nicholas Roeg read some of his short stories and saw what today millions are able to see, too: A writer who blends history, legend and fiction with alchemic intuition, as he mixes the chemistry of our species’ will to survive with our common existential questions, thus threading the complexities of the individual into those of societies, and, ultimately, into what we know humanity is capable of.

There Are No Races in Humanity

Most of the world population, whether they are ‘racist’ or ‘anti-racist’, perceive ‘differences in race’ as biologically real, meaning, as being the parameters that decide the classification of humans into genetically separate groups. Nothing could be further from the truth, because, over the years, geneticists, biologists and anthropologists have found compelling evidence that race, as a primary genetic divergence is biologically invalid.

There is no neurological patterning that distinguishes races from one another, nor are there patterns in muscle development and structure, digestive tracts, hand-eye coordination, or any other such measures.

Today, data show that the DNA of any two human beings is 99.9 percent identical, and we all share the same set of genes, scientifically validating the existence of a single biological human race and one origin for all human beings.
