” NIR works on the principle that different molecules vibrate in slightly different ways. When infrared light if transmitted through or reflected from a given sample, certain wavelengths are absorbed more than others by the vibrating chemical bonds. By measuring the fraction of nearinfrared light absorbed at each wavelength, scientists can obtain a distinct fingerprint that is characteristic of the sample. The results are precise—and fast.”

compilation of student work from Eye,Robot  at SCI-Arc Fall 2012.

“Eye, Robot” focuses on the intersection of computation, robotic fabrication, and cinematography. The course explores robotic motion control as a creative medium for designers, mainly through the use of the custom robotic animation software platform, designed specifically for the SCI-Arc Robot House. The platform has the unique ability for the designer not only to design motion, but also to program, simulate, and speculate all at the same time. This type of animation space suspends the distinction between simulation, speculation, and ‘the real’, making it very hard for one to determine which is which while questioning traditional notions of architectural representation.[click for gallery]

Spare Knowledge \\ HAWT sauce on Black Holes

Lets say we LIKE the cosmos theory and we EVEN MORE adore the experimental predictions of artistic scopes taken . Aggro-style Thursday from the block — yOu arch minionz love evolving through that stuff from the FG.   .gogogo.

Here Come The Warm Jets

Combining observations done with ESO’s Very Large Telescope and NASA’s Chandra X-ray telescope, astronomers have uncovered the most powerful pair of jets ever seen from a stellar black hole. The black hole blows a huge bubble of hot gas, 1000 light-years

Radio Waves

This artist’s concept shows a galaxy with a supermassive black hole at its core. The black hole is shooting out jets of radio waves. New research led by theoretical astrophysicist David Garofalo of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California

Eat to the Beat

Artist’s schematic impression of the distortion of space-time by a supermassive black hole at the center of a galaxy. The black hole will swallow dark matter at a rate which depends on its mass and on the amount of dark matter around it.

Beware of the Blob

This illustration shows what one of the galaxies inside a blob might look like, with the spiral arms of the galaxy in yellow and white, and two-sided outflow powered by the supermassive black hole buried inside shown in bright yellow.

really nice opportunity and way of thought contributed to the idea on today’s artist

njoy.

The way we understand the world relies so much on our ability to measure it. Given that many measurements are based on the proportions of the human body its clear we measure stuff to find our place amongst it all and to connect with it in some way.”

”For me, wonder is a state of mind somewhere between knowledge and uncertainty. It is the basis of my practice and results in images that are simultaneously familiar yet strange. Each piece begins as a question of visual possibilities and develops in tandem with the natural laws of the world. Serendipitously, this process often yields unexpected results measurable only through photographic processes. The human presence and artifacts of the process provide a clue to the creation of the photograph while adding to the mysterious nature of the image. My hope is that this work affirms that even within the well tested laws of science there are, and must always be, pathways to reinterpretation and discovery.”

Its all about the attitude

yo, dont know how many of you are into 3D animation but anyway. Recently “GreyScaleGorilla” released “Transform“, a plugin for C4D where you can make things explode etc..

Anyway, a lot of experienced users quickly replied that this plugin is nothing more than a set of combined presets that only noobz would appreciate.

So the FG is giving big upz to this guy –  for his animation WITHOUT gay plugings :

First Contact // Denis Olivier

comparing the artists thoughts on his first contact with photography as a child — onandon –

with his current works. njoy!

“My first encounter with photography took place when my parents performed some strange static dances with an object in front of their face. Later they would close themselves up in a special room under the house for long periods of time, and no one was allowed in.

They diligently made sure that they were left to their own devices while inside.

One day I was given permission to enter the room and allowed to stay, but on the condition that I didn’t move or went out.

playin jokes on McNeel

so, flyingarchitecture created a thread where readers could leave their wishes for the new version of Rhino..eventually the McNeel Team would read them and respond properly.

Here is the thread “wishlist for next rhino

As you all know, we are from the internet, and the comments pushed the way we define lolz to a new limit.
