Late night story // Daniel Danger

”Amidst old houses dead from the fallout of urban sprawl, railway bridges asleep from neglect, and trees that engulf everything; his work attempts to remind you of something you may have said to someone, or something someone may have said to you; back in that time period thats just too far away to remember clearly, but not so long ago you forgot about it completely. His memories and many of his friends are simply ghosts now, shaking him awake with mistimed alarm clocks and the sounds of a television from across the house. Documentation is key to get through the day. Things are always changing and its easy to lose yourself.”

lock key or latchkey, a house you tricked empty

do we let it in, do we have a choice?

because they will take it back piece by piece

you have a wonderlust growing in your soul

|short bio below

The project deals with the ancestral fascination that the first men had for stars and the mystical power of the animal kingdom. These string drawings bring us back to the experience of a planetarium, where the ceiling shows us a sky we rarely see. Like beautiful constellations, these galloping beasts seem to escape invisible predators from an infinite galaxy.

Images turn Science into Art !

From the dark-matter web of the universe to the rainbow of a mouse’s retina, a new trove of award-winning science images reveals little-seen worlds.
The winners of the 2011 International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge, announced today (Feb. 2) turn dry data into vivid imagery. The informational poster “The Cosmic Web,” for example, used simulations and algorithms to create a fiery, beautiful representation of matter in the universe through time. The image, by Johns Hopkins University cosmologist Miguel Angel Aragon-Calvo, won a spot on the cover of the Feb. 3 issue of the journal Science, which co-sponsors the contest with the National Science Foundation.
The contest also includes interactive games. One honoree this year created one called “Build-a-Body,” in which players can drag and drop organs into a virtual human body, learning anatomy and playing surgeon. Another game allows players to “zoom in” to the human body and look at individual cells.
This year’s winner in the photography category is a stunning photograph of a mouse’s eye. Using a technique called computational molecular phenotyping, University of Utah neuroscientist Bryan William Jones reveals the metabolic diversity of the cells in the creature’s retina.

“The talent of these award winners is remarkable,”

Monica Bradford, the executive editor of the journal Science, said in a statement.

“These winners communicate science in a manner that not only captures your attention,

but in many instances strives to look at different ways to solve scientific problems through their varied art forms.”

#Lets take a look at the Winning.Entries

Teeny-Tiny Tubes

University of Nebraska-Lincoln electrical engineer Yongfeng Lu discovered a laser-based production technique that can create these nanotubes to careful specifications.

The Power of Minus Ten

Credit: Laura Lynn Gonzalez, Green-Eye VisualizationTaking an honorable mention in the gaming category, The Power of Minus Ten allows players to zoom in on the human body at different levels of magnification, all the way down to the molecular level as seen in this screengrab.

False Cliff

Barsoum, Drexel UniversityIt’s not the edge of the Grand Canyon; this People’s Choice winner was created by placing a layered compound called Ti3AIC2 in hydrofluoric acid. The acid selectively etches away some layers of the compound, creating this odd scene.

Cell Separation

The cell membrane is shown in blue and the cell’s chromosomes in yellow as the cell divides or undergoes mitosis.

Attack of the Antibody

Cool as a …

Credit: Robert Rock Belliveau, MDThis honorable mention photo is the skin of an immature cucumber, magnified 800 times. These structures are called “trichomes,” and they act as little spears, protecting the young vegetable from plant-eaters. The lower part of the trichomes contains bitter, toxic chemicals that make herbivores go “ick!”

Ebola Unveiled

Virtual Body

Credit: Jeremy Friedberg (Game designer/producer), Nicole Husain (Content & Writing), Ian Wood (Programming), Genevieve Brydson (Project Management), Wensi Sheng (3D graphics, Compositing/post-production), Lorraine Trecroce (3D graphics, Project Management),The final honorable mention in the gaming category goes to “Build-a-Body,” a game that lets computer users play surgeon — without all that messy blood and bile. Drag-and-drop organs and take anatomy quizzes and you’ll be ready for the OR in no time.

Foldit

The Color of Math

Credit: Konrad Polthier and Konstantin Poelke, Free University of BerlinThis honorable mention visualization shows the visualization of a complex function using colors to represent every complex number. Complex functions are important in math, physics and engineering.

Cellular Heros

Bassham & ES Wurtele, Iowa State UniversityIn the plot of Meta!Blast 3D, you’re a hapless lab worker who has to rescue a team of scientists trapped inside a photosynthetic cell. To make matters worse, an unknown pathogen is decimating Earth’s vegetation. Designed for students and educators, this game garnered an honorable mention.
