Moment of Impact: the amazing photography of Alan Sailer | Visual*~*Revolution | Scoop.it

Alan Sailer says he was an obscure photographer, working in his garage, shooting stuff with a pellet gun and capturing the results with a home-made microsecond flash. All it took was one picture to become a sudden hit on the social networks.

"My boss came by one day and told me my site was getting a huge number of views," he wrote on his Flickr page. "Emails from magazines, newspapers and even Good Morning America started clogging my FlickrMail box. It was very stressful."

From Gatsby to Apple, or what the 1939 New York World's Fair has to do with the evolution of color theory. More than mere aesthetic fetishes, our favorite colors — and color in general — speak to us in powerful cyphers of symbolism, memories, associations, and emotional undertones

Summary: M. Fullan's Change Drivers | Visual*~*Revolution | Scoop.it

Tom Grant's musings on Michael Fullan's “Choosing the Wrong Drivers for Whole System Change”

Tom writes-'Fullan forces us to look critically at the elements of change and which ones work in our present context and in our present circumstances. He clearly articulates that there are many elements of change and that at times all have influence on large scale change. However he cautions us that if used alone or as central drivers, they may get us to a better place systemically but not as far as we think we need to go.'

Louis Daguerre: Pictures Illuminate Google's Man of the Day

Louis Daguerre: Pictures Illuminate Google's Man of the Day | Visual*~*Revolution | Scoop.it

Happy Birthday Louis!

Born November 18, 1787 Louis Daguerre (complete name Louis-Jacques-Mande Daguerre) partnered with contemporary and French printer Joseph Nicephore Niepce -- the actual inventor of a permamnent photograph, also called a heliograph -- in 1825 to help catalyse a process that speeded up creation of dioramas -- a picture viewing device.

While Niepce is credited with successfully inventing the first permanent photograph, Louis Daguerre made the entire process commercially viable.

Daguerre's efforts, in a way, is the harbinger of the age of digital photography and its explosion that we are witnessing today in the 21st century.

Pogo:Remix of Disney Animation and Songs | Visual*~*Revolution | Scoop.it

Pogo-aka Nick Bertke...This is the video for my track 'Bloom', a patchwork of vocals and musical chords from various Disney films. I recorded the harp sample from 'Sleeping Beauty', and a series of chords from 'A.I: Artificial Intelligence' to form the base of the chorus. The vocals are sampled from Disney films, each of which are illustrated in this video.

I used Adobe Audition to record my samples, FLStudio to arrange them, and Sony Vegas to create the video for the track.

So very delightful, whimsical and clever!

Why Man Creates: A Saul Bass Gem from 1968 Part 1 & 2

Why Man Creates: A Saul Bass Gem from 1968 Part 1 & 2 | Visual*~*Revolution | Scoop.it
We love iconic graphic designer Saul Bass and have a soft spot for luminaries' musings on the nature of creativity. Playful yet profound, the film is a series of sequences that at first appear unconnected but eventually converge into a compelling exploration of (wo)man’s most fundamental impetus to create, featuring such delightful tongue-in-cheek vehicles as this exchange between Michelangelo and da Vinci: Whaddaya doin?” ‘I’m painting the ceiling! Whadda you doin?” “I’m painting the floor!”

Research into something called the Pictorial Superiority Effect (PSE) has found that for some kinds of information, more visual modes of input result in greater recognition and the recall. In other words, there’s truth to the saying that “a picture is worth a thousand words.”

I journeyed to the edge of Universe

Where stars collide and end in dust

The junk yard of the Universe

Where inky darkness lasts from

millenium to millenium

Far Far into the unwanted portion of time. . .
