Don’t Let Snapshots Keep You From Seeing the World

Don’t Let Snapshots Keep You From Seeing the World | Snapshop Photograph | Scoop.it
When people notice something interesting or beautiful these days, there’s often a natural impulse to pull out their smartphones and snap a photo of it, preserving that moment and memory.

Grammarly to check and improve your grammar

Grammarly to check and improve your grammar | Snapshop Photograph | Scoop.it

Even the most confident of native speakers can sometimes have doubts about their spelling and grammar. As for learners of English, getting their writing to a really high degree of proficiency can be a real challenge. It’s great to have a friend to turn to in moments of doubt or better still someone who will proof read your work and give you a second opinion, but if you don’t have that luxury then the Grammarly plagiarism checker is probably the next best thing.

The Carabineers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Carabineers (French: Les Carabiniers) (1963) was the fifth narrative feature film by French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard.

Les Carabiniers (1963) tells the story of two poor men called to serve in battle, lured by promises of the world’s riches. Ulysses (Marino Mase) and Michelangelo (Albert Juross) receive letters from the king of their fictional country that allow them to have complete freedom from consequence while fighting in the war, in return for anything they desire —swimming pools, Maseratis, women— at the enemy’s expense.

Their wives, Venus and Cleopatra (Catherine Ribeiro and Genevieve Galea) encourage them to fight when they hear about the riches. They leave and cross the battlefields and villages, destroying and pillaging as they wish. The pair’s exploits are recounted through postcards sent to their wives, telling tales of the horrors of battle. The previously idealistic idea that the men have of war disintegrates, as they are still poor and now wounded. They return home with a suitcase full of postcards of the splendors of the world that they have fought for, and are told by army officials that they must wait until the war ends to receive their pay.

Snapshotic's curator insight, February 24, 2013 10:15 AM

The renowned author and critic Susan Sontag referenced the film in her 1977 collection of essays On Photography. With respect to the "two sluggish lumpen-peasants" returning home bearing postcards of the treasures of the world instead of tangible treasure, Sontag noted that "Godard's gag vividly parodies the equivocal magic of the photographic image." [2]

Robosapiens – merging with machines will improve humanity at an exponential rate

Robosapiens – merging with machines will improve humanity at an exponential rate | Snapshop Photograph | Scoop.it
One can’t help be positive about the future. Even obstacles have a bright side. For example - humans at some point will be limited by space and time; we can’t expect to go far in space exploration without the development of strong artificial intelligence and robots.

Experts say it takes light 100,000 years to travel from one end of the Milky Way galaxy to the other. Note that the speed of light is 3.0 x 10^8 m/s. This means that even if humans travel at the speed of light, which is 3.0 x 10^8 m/s, it will take us about 100000 years to traverse the milky way galaxy.

This limitation of humans can be eliminated once humans decide to merge with robots.

We can’t face the future with fear and trepidation; we must face it with caution and wisdom. The trade-offs between fear and improvement need to be considered if humans are to make meaningful progress in the next 80 years.

One meaningful reason that humans need to merge with machines is because the rate of improvement in our biology is linear, whereas, computing power doubles every two years. It follows an exponential curve.

This a common concern amongst participants in the Thinking Practices module and once again it came up last week during our debate on writing strategies for the module’s essay: how to combine the artistic approach with the academic requirements, how to write in  a creative manner whilst following the need for rigorous referencing and quoting as a way of legitimising one’s assertions? The Journal of Artistic Research (JAR) is used to similar questioning so its interesting to see what they propose as a their format to publish artistic research.

Images from the past: Circular snapshots from the Kodak 1: Digital Photography Review

Images from the past: Circular snapshots from the Kodak 1: Digital Photography Review | Snapshop Photograph | Scoop.it

The first consumer point-and-shoots didn't have art effect modes or face detection smile-shutters. They looked like the Kodak 1 pictured above, a leather-encased box with a key to wind the film, shutter release and not much else. Introduced to the public in 1888, each Kodak 1 contained a roll of film with 100 exposures. Once they'd all been used, the owner sent the entire camera to Kodak for processing and re-loading. Images came back as 65mm round negatives, partially in order to hide distortion at the corners of the images. 

 

The UK's National Media Museum owns a collection of prints from these first consumer 'compacts.' Taking a look through a set of the images is an interesting study in what was deemed photo-worthy at the time. Rather than the stiff portraits that earlier cameras demanded with their long exposure times, these snapshots offer a glimpse into a slightly more relaxed everyday existence at the dawn of popular photography. Click through the slideshow to see some of our favorites, and check out the full set of images on the National Media Musem's Flickr.
