Standby

Sat, 03/25/2017 - 12:34pm

Gary and Jenny share the same cramped “office space” as all beat cops: the front seat of a patrol car. Their evolving relationship is an emotional rollercoaster ride that stands in often-comedic contrast to the procession of thugs and criminals filling the back seat.

! Beetle and the Puppetmaster

Fri, 03/24/2017 - 9:56pm

I watched the beetle pinch off the wood pieces before I realized I should be recording it. For a (robot) beetle to "know" what to do, and how to do it with no supervisor... makes me wonder how "evolution" made it work so smart. It clearly has an agenda, and "knows" where, and how, else it is a puppet being manipulated by invisible strings... Duuh..
Besides that! Normally this work goes on in the dark, 24 hours a day with no lunch breaks, or whatever. It never gets vacation. Clearly they need a labor union.

Months later, and lots of discussions with others who review this miracle, the common conclusion is that the laborer never makes mistakes, and it always knows where the hole is, or whatever is its purpose for moving "stuff". It has to be conscious! ...or at least consciousness is guiding it. That has to be true even in total darkness. Since it has no brain, it has no "visual perception" that we understand as sight. Yet it is "aware" of where it is going without being able to "see" destination.

Until recently, I never pondered the hole. I consider the working beetle down in the depths of dirt and rotting roots. How did beetle 'know' it needs a pathway from the dark and dirty depths to accomplish transforming the hard wood above into manageable particles? ...and move them down the hole?

I have encountered various wood devouring beetles through the years when dealing with stump or wood pile removal. I was never privileged to see one "working", or performing it's "job". I have never understood (or cared about) how the beetle executes the "disposal" assignment in minute detail. The ambiguous term "instinct" is a cop-out!

Clearly a "puppet-master" caused a pathway to the visible world to be created and that provided the "worker" access to the next "workplace" where I could observe details and become amazed and record it.

Can you imagine what our living environment would be without natures cleanup crews? Deceased life forms from trees to flesh without a disposal process would be problematic to our existence. Even roaches are part of the cleanup crews with various specialties.

The common conclusion is that we not dare to describe the controller since the only evidence we see is "results". Hmmm.... we don't see things like "gravity" either, but we see results. How about things like "your mind" or "consciousness"? Ego? All we see is results. Should I consider things like emotions? Are they real science? If not science, then what?

Il dolce suono - "The Diva Dance" - Diva PlavaLaguna ... voice by Inva Mula-Tchako - The Fifth Element

Wed, 03/22/2017 - 10:52am

Diva PlavaLaguna Il dolce suono

scene from the movie - The Fifth Element

The Fifth Element is a 1997 French science fiction film directed, co-written, and based on a story by Luc Besson, starring Bruce Willis, Gary Oldman, Milla Jovovich, Ian Holm,Chris Tucker, (Maiwenn Le Besco - Diva Plavalaguna) The voice of the Diva is provided by opera singer Inva Mula-Tchako
The Diva Dance opera performance featured music from Gaetano Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor : "Il dolce suono", the mad scene of Act III, Scene II, and was sung by Albanian soprano Inva Mula-Tchako, while the role of Plava laguna was played by French actress Maïwenn Le Besco. Part One (titled Lucia di Lammermoor) and Part Two (titled The Diva Dance) of this piece are included as separate tracks on The Fifth Element soundtrack, but are sequenced to create the effect of the entire performance seen in the film. The end of Part One blends into the beginning of Part Two, creating a smooth transition between the two tracks.

Ice, driftwood, foamy waves and … skateboards? Four skaters head north to the cold Norwegian coast, applying their urban skills to a wild canvas of beach flotsam, frozen sand and pastel skies. The result is a beautiful mashup — biting winds and short days, ollies and a frozen miniramp.

A FICTIVE FLIGHT ABOVE REAL MARS

Mon, 03/20/2017 - 10:45am

The anaglyph images of Mars taken by the HiRISE camera holds information about the topography of Mars surface. There are hundreds of high-resolution images of this type. This gives the opportunity to create different studies in 3D. In this film I have chosen some locations and processed the images into panning video clips. There is a feeling that you are flying above Mars looking down watching interesting locations on the planet. And there are really great places on Mars! I would love to see images taken by a landscape photographer on Mars, especially from the polar regions. But I'm afraid I won't see that kind of images during my lifetime.

It has really been time-consuming making these panning clips. In my 3D-process I have manually hand-picked reference points on the anaglyph image pairs. For this film I have chosen more than 33.000 reference points! It took me 3 months of calendar time working with the project every now and then.

The colors in this film are false because the anaglyph images are based on grayscale images. I have therefore color graded the clips. But I have tried to be moderate doing this. The light regions in the clips are yellowish and the dark regions bluish. The clips from the polar regions (the last clips in the film) have a white-blue tone.There are a lot of opinions and studies of what the natural colors on Mars might be. But the dark regions of dust often seems to have a bluish tone. Please study this issue on e.g sites by NASA.

This film is not scientific. As a space enthusiast I have just tried to visualize the planet my way.
The video begins with a nearby approach to Mars moon Phobos.
Some of the anaglyphs used can be seen on my blog, please visit:

Please watch the film in 2K if possible for greater details.
