Maps!The Finnish Land Survey has been opening it's archives to the public during the last month - under a very liberal license, might I add. The latest batch included the digital elevation model. You may guess where this is going.
While shooting the January Lights time lapse my friend and I drove past the moderately mighty-looking fell, Saana. Twice. In horrible weather. During the polar night. The point is, we didn't see it, so the least I could do is use it as a test subject. Let's hope this works. I'm planning my thesis on and around the subject, and I'd like to write about something that works.
ExcitementThis could very well be the day my shiny new DSLR arrives.
Hints concerning DIY steadycams will be greatly appreciated.
The curse of too many thingsBought some stuff from NWDA and trying to understand them.
Found some brilliant scripts for 3ds Max and trying to run them without the hideous crashes.
Chances of accomplishing anything relatively soon because of all this... slim.
Concerning self-controlPatience. As long as I'm not buying something shiny, I'm generally pretty good at it.
When it comes to publishing stuff, however, all bets are off, and that's why I'm currently tweaking the snow and cloud coverage for An interlude v2. Somewhat ironically, those were the main two things I was disappointed in the Saraswati observatory, and consequently the reason I made the whole update-sequel-thing in the first place.
The upside of being able to render during weekends alone is, though, that I have more than enough time to make sure there won't be a need for v3. If I can resist the urge to install Fallout.
And there was snow. And fluffiness. Next up: fixing everything that broke due to the former.
Concerning timeI can't help grinning like that cat in that movie when GI prepasses alone don't take centuries. Could get used to this.
Yay for new shiny things!The dashing knight in shining armour parks his horse outside the building, kicks in the door and exclaims that it's time I got what's coming to me. Hold on... is that an Intel Inside sticker on his chestplate? Could it be? He pulls out a small box from his satchel... it couldn't, could it? Yes, it in fact could! An i7!
Then, reality, and upgrading everything else to actually run the bloody thing. At this stage I'm probably broke, but I dare not check my bank balance, so we'll never know, will we? And with these render times, who gives a crap? It's just that reading the small graph the performance gadget is printing out was easier when there wasn't 8 cores worth of data on it (Yay for hyperthreading, nevertheless!).
Devious Journal EntryWhen a scene has 252623 plants, it may be high time to admit it probably won't be about a desert at all...

You and IArtwork by agnes-cecile
I figured it out from black and white.
Seconds and hours.
Maybe they had to take some time.
I know how it goes from wrong and right.
Silence and sound.
Did they ever hold each other tight
Did they ever fight
We can make it 'til the end.
Nothing can come between
Not even the Gods above
Can separate the two of us.
I figured it out.
Saw the mistakes of up and down.
Meet in the middle.
There's always room for common ground.
I see what it's like for day and night.
this thing called art is really dangerous by agnes-cecile
'Cause they see things in a different light
But they never tried
Mary Cassatt"In art, what we want is the certainty that one spark of original genius shall not be extinguished."
Portrait of the Artist c. 1878
Mary Cassatt was born in Allegheny City (now part of Pittsburgh), Pennslyvania, USA on May 23, 1844. Her family was upper-middle-class, giving Mary the ability to travel Europe and later attend art school. Her schooling at the Pennslyvania Academy of Fine Arts lead her to believe one of the best ways she could learn was to copy the old masters.
The Mandolin Player c. 1872
In 1866, Mary finally got the opportunity to study abroad, but even then the prestigious Ecole des Beaux-Arts would not accept female students. Cassatt was also let down by the Salon and the conservatism of the Paris art world in general. After spending time studying and refining her techniques throughout the rest of Europe, Cassatt returned to Paris once aga
Norway! (forget Kenya)Nothing kills small, personal projects like a position in an urgent defense project, I've come to notice.
It's a good thing I have a large one. Diriumm and I have a grand time lapse video of yet-undetermined length from northern Norway underway. It's also an experiment on a RAW workflow, which is a damn fine idea if you want to die inside. Also, something about picture quality.
We have a teaser trailer and everything:
Abandoned ChapelThe parish waits now,
the loneliness of corners
crawling outward on walls--
chipped away by the wind,
and held together
by silk spindles;
cobwebs align them like the membranes of memories,
the cut of a jewel in an broken window
against the sun
where beads of rain
gather in a mesh of strands
a new Mosaic
against the backdrop of a cemetery;
My eyes seek out the sermon
in close proximity,
paint no distance
between headstone and cloud;
elegies topple each other
in their climb to heaven
as light trickles
over the shade,
breathes a new glow over snuffed candles.
I feel the weight in these empty rows,
how a breath couldn't cease to be breath
in the midst of prayer.
