Planes, Birds and Fish

Jan 04, 2008 - Fyre - 0 Comments - Standard

Back in the early 90’s, I went through a 3 year phase when I wanted to become an airplane pilot. In addition to taking flight training in Ontario, Canada (where I live) I also “studied” in Phoenix, Arizona and Hoxie, Kansas where I took some cropdusting lessons. During this time I became acquainted with some […]

Digital Picture Frames

Dec 31, 2007 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

Frames? Digital Pictures! They really ought to be called something like, “Digital Display Frame” since the “frame” isn’t really digital, is it? It’s the picture that’s digital. But I think it’s an example of how language is a practical medium and changes according to the whims of those who use it, rather than the direction […]

Lookin’ Great in Two Thousand and Eight

Dec 30, 2007 - Fyre - 0 Comments - Standard

It’s amazing how those two words, “Great” and “Eight” with such very different spellings can actually rhyme. And that’s the way it often is with webpage designs; it’s amazing what looks good together once you actually try it. The Silent Star Award Sometimes you have to see an example before you get inspired. For my […]

You think Nuclear Weapons are easy to make?

Inkblot Kaos Parameter File Getting through the winter seems to be so complicated and expensive for us humans. On the other hand, in the tropics houses are simple. All you really need is a roof that keeps the rain out, screens on the windows (or a mosquito net to sleep under), four walls and a […]

When Art is Useful

Dec 21, 2007 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

Inkblot Kaos Parameter File From time to time I become curious about something and I start reading about it. A month ago it was hibernation, and in particular, the winter homes of animals. Lately it’s been nuclear reactors. This sort of informal, casual study of things I’ve found to be similar to assembling a puzzle, […]

Desert Roads and Mountain Lakes

Dec 14, 2007 - Fyre - 0 Comments - Standard

Desert Roads Back several month ago, I posted about a program called Fyre. As is often the case with new programs and new forms of algorithmic art, I quickly reached what I thought were its creative limits. A recent comment on my blog asking for information on how the images from Fyre are made, re-kindled […]

Test-Tube Art

Inkblot Kaos parameter file Back to fractals. I think I did something to the other machine. It’s leaking oil, or something. I smell something “electrical”, too. My seven year-old daughter was recently invited to a birthday party. While we were looking around in the Barbie Doll aisle of a department store for a suitable present, […]

Peter and Alice visit Santa

Nov 27, 2007 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

Santa’s Bunker Peter and Alice were still a long way off, but stopped to take another look through the telescope. “I can see it!’ said Peter, “It has to be Santa’s home. But it looks strange.” “Here, let me see” said Alice. “That’s barbed wire. It’s all over the place. He’s practically living in a […]
