Green Screen in Movies

Wed, 26 Feb 2014 01:16:14 +0000

We know that ‘green screens’ (or more accurately, “Chroma Key“) are commonly used in filming, be it weather or action movies so that the actor/presenter need not be physically within the context of a scene, whether for safety, costs or technical reasons. The reel from green screen specialist studio Stargate … Continue reading

Sochi 2014 Olympics Logo

Wed, 26 Feb 2014 00:55:19 +0000

Now that the 2014 winter Olympics have wound down, it is fun to look back at the decision the Russian Olympic committee had to make between two competing logo choices. Which would you choose? My first reaction was certainly the top one – it looked fresh, Olympic-esque and contemporary. The … Continue reading

Radiographs of Trauma

Sun, 30 Jun 2013 20:28:43 +0000

While the incidents leading to each of the picture in the above set is probably a traumatizing one, there is still very much inherent (artistic?) beauty in the radiograph images, with a brief caption explaining the cause of each image over at this Flickr set by Surfactant. Check it out!

Maezm “Sharing Watch”

Sat, 25 May 2013 12:58:43 +0000

It is the tiniest of gestures in watch design – but it’s one that I’m loving. As a young kid without a watch I often had to steal glances off other people’s wrists to determine the time, and I’ve always appreciated people wearing watches with very legible faces. The “Sharing … Continue reading

Wedding Magic

Sat, 25 May 2013 10:59:48 +0000

Recently there’s been a flurry of weddings and invitations – something along the combination of friends around my age getting hitched, and auspicious dates/months/years. For those who are thinking of getting married, here’s a video to either stress you (if you’re a guy), or to lift  you to dreamy romantic … Continue reading

Apple’s Offer Letter

Sat, 25 May 2013 10:40:31 +0000

You can see how much design lives in Apple’s DNA – the same type of care, consistency and quality that they put not just in the products that faces the external parties (iPods, ads, etc.) but internally as well. Shown above are the offer letters and HR paper work that … Continue reading

The Immense Redwoods

Wed, 22 May 2013 03:04:40 +0000

Since young I’ve known from statistics in encyclopedias that redwoods are the planet’s tallest trees – the tallest of which grows in excess of 100 meters. While my mind could probably read the numerical figure, it probably doesn’t comprehend the actual immensity and awe of it. And that’s where the … Continue reading

Car Cigarette Lighters

Wed, 22 May 2013 02:41:09 +0000

It’s one of those things that I’d label as ‘dormant trivia’ – curious questions that I didn’t know exist, even though on hindsight, the bigger question is “why didn’t I think of that question (and find out the answer)? Maybe it’s just me being particularly ignorant or slow – that … Continue reading

Painting with Burger Grease

Wed, 22 May 2013 02:32:48 +0000

Phil Hansen paints a Mona Lisa with burger grease.  He calls it the Mona Greasa.

Sand Animation

Sat, 11 May 2013 03:06:50 +0000

Sand animation is often mesmerizing as you look at how graceful and smooth the narrator can craft out illustrations out of (essentially) a pile of dirt on an overhead projector surface. Watch artist Kseniya Simonova’s mesmerizing fingers twist and turn as she unfolds a story about Germany’s invasion into Ukraine … Continue reading
