The Diatomist

Wed, 09/17/2014 - 3:25pm

THE DIATOMIST is a short documentary about Klaus Kemp, master of the Victorian art of diatom arrangement.

Diatoms are single cell algae that create jewel-like glass shells around themselves. Microscopists of the Victorian era would arrange them into complex patterns, invisible to the naked eye but spectacular when viewed under magnification.The best of these arrangements are stunning technical feats that reveal the hidden grandeur of some of the smallest organisms on Earth. Klaus Kemp has devoted his entire life to understanding and perfecting diatom arrangement and he is now acknowledged as the last great practitioner of this beautiful combination of art and science. THE DIATOMIST showcases his incredible work.

Soundtrack by Ryuichi Sakamoto, Bernard Herrmann and Cults Percussion Ensemble.

MATTHEW KILLIP is an English filmmaker living in New York. His documentaries have been broadcast on UK television and exhibited in festivals including Sundance and True/False.

Glass Blowing | Jeremy Maxwel Wintrebert (Heart of Glass Documentary preamble)

Wed, 09/17/2014 - 3:21pm

This film is the preamble of the documentary Heart of Glass.
Heart of Glass is a journey. A road trip through several countries on two continents in pursuit of a story.
The story of a young glass blower with a singular talent: Jeremy Maxwell Wintrebert.
The film follows him in his daily life--working in the studio and on the road.
Jeremy recounts growing up in Africa, where he drew inspiration for his first pieces. He speaks of his family of Franco-American origin, difficult events he faced, the challenges of returning to Europe. He speaks of his first encounter with glass at age 19. The first time he saw the hot glass moving at the end of a blow pipe was his seminal moment. The way the glass, fluid, delicate and mysterious, danced that day has forever changed him.
The film reveals how passion can undo a tragic fate.

Feel free to help the project with the Tip Jar ! :)

Christchurch From the Streets Spring 2014.

Wed, 09/17/2014 - 3:16pm

**Starting 21st September. TVONE. Sunday 11.30am***

Gerard Smyth (award-winning Director of When a City Falls) has assembled a team who are uncovering Christchurch’s innovations through the lives of every day people living in extraordinary times.

Four years on from the first earthquakes we ask what could be- for our people, for our city. Building on the success of the first series, the second series of Christchurch: From the Streets, looks to the future. In a rebuild expected to cost 40-50 billion, change is what Christchurch people are collectively learning to embrace.

From the Streets sees Christchurch as the petri dish for the whole land. Innovations occurring in the city will affect all of New Zealand. At the same time the show gives Christchurch locals a voice in their own recovery and an understanding of the astonishing changes forming all around them.

From the back of an ageing Mercedes, presenters Rachel Morton and Lindon Puffin criss-cross the streets of Christchurch. They pick up a tour guide and along the way meet the dreamers, innovators and engineers who are creating the new city.

THAW: Hybrid Interactions with Phones on Computer Screens

Mon, 09/15/2014 - 10:33pm

THAW is a novel interaction system that allows a collocated large display and small handheld devices to seamlessly work together. The smartphone acts both as a physical interface and as an additional graphics layer for near-surface interaction on a computer screen. Our system enables accurate position tracking of a smartphone placed on or over any screen by displaying a 2D color pattern that is captured using the smartphone’s back-facing camera. The proposed technique can be implemented on existing devices without the need for additional hardware.

Jetpack helps soldiers run faster

Mon, 09/15/2014 - 6:50pm

What if every soldier could run a four-minute mile? That's the goal behind 4MM, or 4 Minute Mile, a student project to create a wearable jetpack that enhances speed and agility. Working with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and a faculty mentor, Jason Kerestes is the mastermind behind 4MM. He built a prototype of the jetpack and is now testing and refining his design to be as effective as possible.

The 4MM project is part of an ASU program called iProjects, which brings students and industry together to find innovative solutions to real-world problems. See an overview of this year's iProjects here:
