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
Alan's TED talk focuses on the changes in the culture and ecology of learning-where there is a fundamental shift in relationship and roles and the feeling of empowerment (through technology and global connections) that students have when they create a legacy.
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.'
“Why Man Creates" is a 1968 animated short documentary film which discusses the nature of creativity. It was written by Saul Bass and Mayo Simon, and directed by Saul and Elaine Bass.
The movie won the Academy Award for Documentary Short Subject. An abbreviated version of it ran on the first-ever broadcast of CBS’ 60 Minutes, on September 24, 1968.
Why Man Creates focuses on the creative process and the different approaches taken to that process. It is divided into eight sections: The Edifice, Fooling Around, The Process, Judgment, A Parable, Digression, The Search, and The Mark.
The Symphony of Science is a musical project of John D Boswell, designed to deliver scientific knowledge and philosophy in musical form.

Design duo Pamela Campagna and husband Thomas Scheiderbauer of L-able created these two intricate thread portraits using old family photographs. Each piece took nearly a month, beginning with the large family portrait using black thread and moving on to the multi-toned woman.
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.
Renowned LIFE photographer Gjon Mili, a technical genius and lighting innovator, visited Pablo Picasso in the South of France in 1949. This series of photographs, since known as Picasso's "light drawings," were made with a small flashlight or "light pencil" in a dark room; the images vanished almost as soon as they were created.
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.
In a room there is a box. In the box there is a forest. In the forest there is a lost child. They developed the narrative structure of this film spontaneously step by step and created the whole film in an intense working phase within one month. The Smaller Room was shown in more than 25 international film- and animation festivals. The film was two times special mentioned by the jury and won a prize in Animanima Serbia...and you sure can see why!
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!”
VisualComplexity.com intends to be a unified resource space for anyone interested in the visualization of complex networks. The project's main goal is to leverage a critical understanding of different visualization methods, across a series of disciplines, as diverse as Biology, Social Networks or the World Wide Web. I truly hope this space can inspire, motivate and enlighten any person doing research on this field.
UVIC’S LANGUAGE TEACHING CLIPART LIBRARY is a clipart repository offering about 3,000 images. Images can be searched by topic such as, “Animal”, “Body”, “Clothing” “Emotional” and “Colour” to name a few. There is also a keyword search option.
Each picture in the collection has two versions. One has a white background while the other has a transparent background.
Users are free to use the images for non-commercial purposes provided attribution is given to the creators, the University of Victoria (BC), Language Department.
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.”
