Keep it thorough.
My friends are better than me at life.
HDR control. Pretty neeeeeeat. I’ve been wondering when phone-folks were going to add this in.
Patterned by Nature was commissioned by the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences (naturalsciences.org) for the newly built Nature Research Center in Raleigh, North Carolina. The exhibit celebrates our abstraction of nature’s infinite complexity into patterns through the scientific process, and through our perceptions. It brings to light the similarity of patterns in our universe, across all scales of space and time.
10 feet wide and 90 feet in length, this sculptural ribbon winds through the five story atrium of the museum and is made of 3600 tiles of LCD glass. It runs on roughly 75 watts, less power than a laptop computer. Animations are created by independently varying the transparency of each piece of glass.
The content cycles through twenty programs, ranging from clouds to rain drops to colonies of bacteria to flocking birds to geese to cuttlefish skin to pulsating black holes. The animations were created through a combination of algorithmic software modeling of natural phenomena and compositing of actual footage.
An eight channel soundtrack accompanies the animations on the ribbon, giving visitors clues to the identity of the pixelated movements. In addition, two screens show high resolution imagery and text revealing the content on the ribbon at any moment.

“Sorry if you tried to get at my phone yesterday. My only excuse it that I had some professional napping in between being a professional. Woke up from aforementioned naps only to finally complete Gears of War 3, attempt to remember how to play Fifa Street 3 before taking on the reboot, and to eat the shit out of Jollibee.
Yesterday morning, I saw this graphic of a Penn Jillette quote and it touched on my sentiments like a creepy uncle. Therefore, I’ve got to say this: Check out the discount bin at GameStop for Xbox 360. There’s a ton of monumental titles in there (as well as some fun party joke games) for around $5-$15 USD. I’m only calling out a retail outlet by name because those companies need your help, and their used game membership program is actually an awesome deal (a week long-trial period on anything used, 10% discount on used, an informative magazine, heh, rewards points to a fun little shop, and valuable coupons and offers). After the next generation of consoles, the retail power is more-than-likely going to go back to developers. If you’ve seen the way they handle selling content to us as of late (Can you say, “Hello WTF DLC”?), we are sort of all screwed if we can’t buy used. Games stored in “The Cloud”, download-only first-party titles, and the death of physical media are the future we’ve arrived to. The transition brings with it with more casualties than anyone would like to admit (shouts to musicians, journalists, meteorologists, that stripper bitch in my trunk..), but the time here is NOW so lets deal with it.
Sorry I sucked at returning calls yesterday.
Buy used games at GameStop.
Damn coffee and rain. Makes me ramble. Now to finish up this App for my Canadian Bros. If you need me, I’ll be at the Silverlake creative space making this room sound like a spaceship.
