The Only Person Who’s Naked in These ‘Nude Portraits’ is the Guy Behind the Camera

The Only Person Who’s Naked in These ‘Nude Portraits’ is the Guy Behind the Camera | MediaMentor | Scoop.it
There’s something to be said for thinking outside the box and turning an idea on its head, and that’s exactly what photographer Trevor Christensen is doing with his hilarious and surprisingly thought-provoking series, Nude Portraits.
Northern_Clips's insight:

There’s something to be said for thinking outside the box and turning an idea on its head, and that’s exactly what photographer Trevor Christensen http://www.trevorchristensen.com/ is doing with his hilarious and surprisingly thought-provoking series, Nude Portraits.http://www.trevorchristensen.com/#!/p/nude-portraits ;

That’s because there aren’t actually any nude people in his portraits… the only person who’s naked during the photo shoot is Christensen himself, who is busy capturing his subjects’ reaction to his birthday suit.

When You Flip Through an IKEA Catalog, 75% of the ‘Photography’ You See is CGI

When You Flip Through an IKEA Catalog, 75% of the ‘Photography’ You See is CGI | MediaMentor | Scoop.it
This photo isn’t actually a photo. From the furniture to the beautiful light falling on the countertops and wood floors, what you’re looking at is a CGI rendering that has replaced 75% of the ‘photos’ in the IKEA catalogs the college kids, divorced...
Northern_Clips's insight:

Today, reveals Enthed, about 75% of all IKEA product images are CGI, and rendered at ‘ridiculously high resolution’ so they’re good for everything from web viewing to wall-sized displays in IKEA’s stores. And as time goes on and rendering software continues to get better, traditional photography promises to play a smaller and smaller role.

To read the full interview and find out just how much Enthed’s team can do on a computer, head over to the Computer Graphics Society website by following the link below.

In January of 2014 the KROM team got to pull some sub-zero tricks in the blistering cold north of the Arctic Circle.
For two icy weeks we travelled parts of mind blowing Greenland with ONE thing in mind:

KENDAMA!

The program was packed with shows, cruising, demos, workshops, skiing, sailing and more. We had an amazing time especially with all the players of Greenland who are without a doubt at a world class skill level!

Enjoy.

The lost promise of the Internet: Meet the man who almost invented cyberspace

The lost promise of the Internet: Meet the man who almost invented cyberspace | MediaMentor | Scoop.it
In 1934, a little-known Belgian thinker published plans for a global network that could have changed everything
Northern_Clips's insight:

Conceived in the pre-digital era, Otlet’s scheme relied on a crazy quilt of analog technologies like microfilm, telegraph lines, radio transmitters and typewritten index cards. Nonetheless, it anticipated the emergence of a hyperlinked information environment — more than half a century before Tim Berners-Lee released the first Web browser.

Despite Otlet’s remarkable foresight, he remains largely forgotten outside of rarefied academic circles. When the Nazis invaded Belgium in 1940, they destroyed much of his work, helping ensure his descent into historical obscurity (although the Mundaneum museum in Belgium is making great strides toward restoring his legacy). Most of his writing has never been translated into English.
