A depiction of Los Angeles in 2019 by Syd Mead for ‘Blade Runner.’
 
Artist Syd Mead is probably best known for his work for the 1982 film Blade Runner, though his vast contributions to cinema can be seen in other groundbreaking works such as Aliens (1986), TRON (1982), and 2013’s Elysium which was directed by Neill Blomkamp. Blomkamp had a life-long obsession with Mead and his artwork which was what led him to engage the services of the then 80-year-old artist to design the sets for his futuristic film.

Mead’s background in industrial design is clear and present in his paintings. During...

San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane: Madness or Masterpiece?

San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane: Madness or Masterpiece? | e.cloud | Scoop.it
‘In inventing new things’, he wrote, ‘one cannot receive the fruit of one’s labour except later.’ Bernini said, after his rival’s death, ‘only Borromini understood this profession, but he was never content and wanted to hollow out one thing inside another, and another inside that without ever getting to the end.’
Alessio Erioli's insight:

Borromini was my first (architectural) love when I started studying history of architecture as a student, and it has remained one of my favourites ever since. Emapthy at first, an undefinable attraction that grew stronger the more I learned about his work.

 

San Carlo is definitely a masterpiece , but because of the madness that is a trait of geniuses only.

 

‘In inventing new things’, he wrote, ‘one cannot receive the fruit of one’s labour except later.’ Bernini said, after his rival’s death, ‘only Borromini understood this profession, but he was never content and wanted to hollow out one thing inside another, and another inside that without ever getting to the end.’

 

An obsession for void and the infinite, San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane is an encapsulated universe.

Casey Reas on coding: you need to be able to read and write

Casey Reas on coding: you need to be able to read and write | e.cloud | Scoop.it
Learning to code is almost always taught with math examples. This can work well for people who are excited about math, but it makes it more of a challenge for visual people. Programming is also often taught from the point of view that everyone in the class is an aspiring computer scientist. When code is seen as a general way of thinking that can apply to many areas of activity, the instruction also transforms, as does the context.Code is a new language, and when a language is taught we need something to talk about. Will we talk about math, architecture, or economics with code? Will we talk about biology, painting, or statistics? When we think about code in a general way, we can move past the technical domains to enter into the domains of culture and the humanities. We can discuss the same set of ideas covered in computer science education like variables, conditionals, and loops, but they are approached in an alternate way.

Scientists create 'impossible' new form of matter with fourth dimension

Scientists create 'impossible' new form of matter with fourth dimension | e.cloud | Scoop.it
A new kind of matter – dubbed a “time crystal” – has been created by two teams of scientists in a feat once considered theoretically impossible. Normal crystals, anything from diamonds to snowflakes, have atoms arranged in a repeating three-dimensional lattice. However the atoms in time crystals – the existence of which was first suggested in 2012 – repeat a pattern across the fourth dimension, time. This essentially means they should oscillate forever without any external influence.

our brains have evolved to color correct. It allows the colors we see to look the same no matter the lighting.

"In this picture, someone has very cleverly manipulated the image so that the objects you're looking at are reflecting what would otherwise be achromatic or grayscale, but the light source that your brain interprets to be on the scene has got this blueish component," Conway told me. "You brain says, 'the light source that I'm viewing these strawberries under has some blue component to it, so I'm going to subtract that automatically from every pixel.' And when you take grey pixels and subtract out this blue bias, you end up with red."
