Tangible Media
MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely,
"Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning."

*The tie-in with the projection-mapping is especially good.

I’ve played with this in person, it’s fucking awesome.

Journey Part 1 from Andrew Walker on Vimeo.

This timelapse video is a collection of footage shot over the last year and a half around the western half of the United States. The shots ranged from very different locations. From Montana to Arizona and most weren’t easy to get to but of course that makes them worth going to. The locations captured ranged in temps of 100 degrees to -9 degrees and in elevations of 12,000 feet to 225 feet below sea level. It took over 15,000 captured still images to make this video.

I would like to thank the companies that provided motion control equipment.

The TB3 eMotimo that I used along with the Dynamic Perception Stage Zero was a huge help in getting some of these shots.

The ISS Image Frontier - “Making the invisible visible” - German Subtitle - extended Version from Christoph Malin on Vimeo.

This is a NEW, 25 Minute Version of “The Image Frontier - Making the Invisible Visible”, with previously unseen footage and lots of new scenes (Version without German Subtitles go here: vimeo.com/61083440)!

A tribute to the International Space Station Program as well as Dr. Don Pettit, NASA Astronaut and ISS Astrophotographer, “Making the Invisible Visible” explores and celebrates the Art and challenges of Astrophotography orbiting earth Day and Night on board of the International Space Station.

Don Pettit’s innovative photographic work, and his passion for low light photography, has definitely changed the way we see earth from space. Accompanied with great background info on the challenges, techniques and motives of astrophotography aboard the ISS by Don’s famous “Luminance” speech, previously unseen footage by Astronaut weaves a compilation of 4 special ISS timelapses (“intro”, “startrails”, “fisheye” and “aurorae”) into a captivating visual experience.

Welcome aboard the ISS - enjoy stunning photography, videos and timelapses from the Space Station!

"Making the Invisible Visible" was screened, and received a "honorable mention" at the 6th annual "Imagine Science" Festival in NYC (Oct. 2013, imaginesciencefilms.org/festival/2013-film-awards/).

Finally, please also be aware of the growing issue of light pollution (plightwithlight.org) one can see in many of these scenes! Support IDA (darksky.org) on their challenge to preserve the night sky for us and our children, on reducing energy waste!

Visit our team at the UNESCO IYA 2009 Project TWAN (twanight.org) for some of the coolest nightsky images and videos on our planet! One people, one sky!

Always believe in your dreams and make it possible!
