Red Sand Field Transformations - Video & Notes

[Video]

original work was done in Fields ….. Using Kaleider I created several mirrored derivatives of the original … then I took the resulting Kaleider designs and created kaleidoscopes using Dazzling Reflectiions and Kaleidoscope Kreater 3 … post work was done in Gimp

To create the movie/video I used Picasa from google …. much thanks to Eve sharing it with me and helping get started (big smile) …

I want to add music to a revised version as soon as I learn more on how to do that and where to get the music from. Another friend here on RB, Jill suggested, as a start, one site ccMixter … will be checking it out soon … will re-post new version as soon as it’s done … but until then … enjoy (big smile)

BigHugeLabs' Trading Cards ...

awhile back I stumbled upon BigHugeLabs free online mini programs … haven’t played too much with them yet but they looked like fun … when I was cleaning up my bookmark/favorite list today I found them again (grin) … so I thought I’d play around with one of their mini programs Trading Cards … has potential for some interesting … well check out what I did with it .. a quick put together for the fun of it (smile) … had to increase size of image since it was only 525px by 750px originally .. was able to upsize to 910px by 1300px and still look ok … so here it is (smile) …

so what do you think? useful? think it would make interesting postcards (smile)

Flame, Liquid Painter - New Online Java Applets! ... and more! (smile)

oh my you have to take a look at this online program called Flame by Peter Blaskov! … create and save to your computer 1680px x 1050px (don’t know resolution) everything from flames to .. well check out this gallery page … can do more than flames (smile)

he’s also working on a standalone version … this little program really looks interesting (smile) …

here’s a quick on I did .. nothing fancy .. just a test (smile) … looks a lot like some apophysis work, eh (grin)


.
.
he also has one called Fluid Painter that is amazing however the only way right now you can save your work is to do a screenshot … maybe with encouragement he’ll add that feature (smile)

here’s a screenshot I did in Fluid Painter and resized with a plugin to Gimp…

African Thunderstorm ... a music interlude

Ran across this video today by Perpetuum Jazzile, an a cappella jazz choir from Slovenia that has the most amazing rendition of Toto’s 1982 hit ‘Africa’ …. you have to listen to it! you will be surprised (smile) …. IMHO the best version I heard (smile) … so for your enjoyment ….

We are all connected ...

“what, you ask, was the beginning of it all?
And it is this …
Existence that multiplied itself for sheer delight of being
And plunged into numberless trillions of forms
So that it might
find itself
innumerably.”

—-Sri Aurobindo
