Short links for August 20th, 2007

Some interesting things I bookmarked on on August 20th, 2007:

  • How to Use Chopsticks in Seven Easy Steps – I usually give up after three bites and grab a fork instead.
  • Free Air Conditioning – Technically it should be called a heat exchanger, we lovingly call it the water cooler, but it has been providing us with free cold air for more than 20 years now so it definitely does work.
  • Arcade Game Manuals – A collection of 1,700 arcade manuals, schematics, and general information in PDF format
  • Magazine Illusions – Are you on the cover of that magazine?

Still Life – pictures of ceramic figures being destroyed

Still Life is a series of pictures by artist Martin Klimas.

Rosecrans Baldwin writes:

Martin Klimas destroys a lot of clay to make his art. Combining the silence of Eadweard Muybridge’s horse pictures with the association-rich composition of a still life, Klimas breaks recognizable objects so they become something else, and stops us just at the moment of transformation.

Check The Morning News for more images and an interview with Martin Klimas.

Light Graffiti captured on photo

lichtfaktor @ Flickr is posting images of Light Graffiti, long exposure pictures featuring pieces done with flashlights, biking-lights and flashing LED lights.

They use 3 different type of lights (they all work with batteries so that you are mobile you also get nice results with fireworks & torches):

So how do you get these images?
For the best results you need a tripod. An exposure of around 10-30 sec. or longer if needed. Set the camera to ISO100 and close your aperture as much as possible, to prevent overexpose. Experiment to get the best results!

Check the Flickr page for more images.

Tim Knowles hooked up a digital camera inside a box and sent it through the mail.

A digital camera inside a parcel looks out through a small hole and captures images of its journey through the postal system. The Spy Box was sent from my studio to the gallery taking an image every 10 seconds recording a total of 6994 images these were then edited together to create an animated slideshow.

Sweet stuff!
