What am I watching this time?

January 26, 2015

This cool, little video is described as follows:

These 3-D printed sculptures, called aniforms, are designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle. If you count the number of spirals on any of these sculptures you will find that they are always Fibonacci numbers.

For this video, rather than using a strobe, the camera was set to a very short shutter speed (1/4000 sec) in order to freeze the spinning sculpture.

What am I watching?

August 15, 2013

A long time ago I heard someone describe a perception of human beings – or anything animate, really – based on time.  When looked at through that lens we are not individual objects, but move through time in the continuous tube/shape/form that our bodies make.

That concept is beautifully visualized in this video – found on Hovercraft Doggy.

Using chain link fencing and colored acrylic discs, Park has created soft looking undulating, organic forms of characterized by ethereal colors that belie the underlying materials that make up their construction.  More here.

What am I Sappy Cat Blogging this week?

March 9, 2012

It is Friday and this is Murphy, showing off his natural ability as a piece of sculpture sitting under a table in the living room.  Actually, all cats have this sculptural ability.  Murphy is being challenged by new kitty, Sam Vimes, who Murphy finds exhausting in his exuberance. Murphy (age 8), is more solemn and dignified, but he is beginning to hold his own against the youngster.
