Watch the "Why do I study Physics?" video from 2013.
My daughter's senior CBL (Challenge Based Learning) reached the climax Friday night with a wonderful reception at 720 Gallery -Phoenix. It was fun to be a part of the entire experience. I hope the new 'Off the Beaten Path' product line is a success for printmaker Nancy Hill of Hazel & Violet. Watch this video produced by Madison and her team, Matt Baratz, Rob Wallace and Paul Bickert to learn more about their project.
Project update here.
This is a pic of my contribution to the project. I think Phoenix needs its own monster. New York and Tokyo shouldn't get all of the fun.
As a part of the 'Greening of Grand Avenue' initiative, 50 artist's were invited to 'adopt' a cement planter and give it some personality. Read a bit about it here. Nathan's planter is featured in the article. See more photos here.
"Toby Ng Design from Hong Kong informs us about the distribution and disposition of our population. Using a minimalist approach, this series brings to the point the global distribution of power, money, clean water, freedom of expression, HIV, anxiety, nationality and sexual orientation. Do these numbers surprise you?" from Fun Stuff Cafe
Hey! Check out this collection of new mobile apps for photographers tested by the great Digital Photography School website. Everything 'mobile app' from a "Pocket Light Meter' to "Easy Release".
Pocket Light Meter reads the lighting conditions in a location, and displays the appropriate settings to help you get the perfect shot. You can buy a light meter to carry along with your camera, or you can download Pocket Light Meter to your iPhone, iPod or iPad for free. The app offers the same features as a traditional light meter, and has undergone an upgrade since its initial design, which gives it better performance in low light. For a serious photographer, it’s an absolute must.
The Easy Release app gives you the tools to collect digital signatures with each photograph that you take.??Easy Release is made for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, and integrates with each device’s built-in camera. If you shoot on a separate camera, consider taking a single shot with your iPhone, iPad or iPod for identification purposes, collect the model signatures in the app, and then just shoot freely with your external camera, knowing you have proof of your subjects’ consent safely stored.
I stumbled upon this print and I was immediately reminded of the value of the artist in today's society.
