Bottomless Well

Friday, February 28, 2014

“Though my dark side is dormant right now, it continues to play a big role in whatever capacity I have to be creative. That's the well I'm able to tap into, where all the anguish, rage and sadness are stored.”

Jessica Lange.

Star Wars, also known as the once beloved epic that a once respected man is determined to squeeze until the memory of what once was effectively no longer exists. At least we get pretty infographics out of it.

NOT ALL WANDERERS ARE LOST

Sunday, September 09, 2012


Photographic essay by Gustav Willeit.

Funny how my brain works. I saw this amazing set of pics and felt almost instantly transported to one of my favourite paintings…

Wanderer above the Sea of Fog
“Wanderer above the Sea of Fog” by Caspar David Friedrich.

If I was given the chance to own just one painting in the entire universe, I'd probably go with this one.

LIMITS

“What I hate is ignorance, smallness of imagination, the eye that sees no farther than its own lashes. All things are possible. (…) Who you are is limited only by who you think you are.”
“There are those who live in the boundaries of guilt and fear, the limits of imagination. They believe limitation is the world. You can not change them. There is work of your own to do. You will never reach the end of your own becoming, the madness of creation, the joy of existence.
Dance in the moment. Reach down and pull up song. Spin and chant and forget the sorrow that we are flesh on bone. ”

THE ART OF ANIMATION AND MOTION GRAPHICS

From YouTube: “Animation has been captivating audiences for more than a hundred years. From classic forms like hand drawn and stop-motion, to cutting-edge techniques like motion graphics and CGI, animation has a long history of creating style and poetry unachievable through live action filmmaking. It is a tool for educating, a place for experimentation and play, and a way of telling personal stories that reach the viewer with powerful visual metaphors. ”

FAILURES OF DESIGN

Friday, August 31, 2012

“To clarify, add detail. Imagine that, to clarify, add detail. Clutter and overload are not attributes of information, they are failures of design. If the information is in chaos, don’t start throwing out information, instead fix the design.”

Edward Tufte.

“Social anxiety disorder, is an anxiety disorder in which a person has an excessive and unreasonable fear of social situations. Anxiety (intense nervousness) and self-consciousness arise from a fear of being closely watched, judged, and criticized by others. The person is afraid that he or she will make mistakes and be embarrassed or humiliated. As a result of the fear, the person endures certain social situations in extreme distress or may avoid them altogether.”
