Palden Lhamo Dusolma Bhutan; 19th century Pigments on cloth F1996.11.4 (HAR 440) This wonderful Bhutanese painting combines a black background with a small portion of blue-green landscape at the bottom of the canvas, creating the sense that one is looking beyond the coastal rocks onto an ocean of blood under a black sky. The edges of clouds, smoke, flames, and rocks are highlighted in gold and form an irradiant setting for the black goddess, who, despite her dynamic, emits a sense of calm within this busy environment. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
This wallpaper was created by Vaclav Pajkrt and his goal was to connect his experience from 3D graphics with some interesting mathematical shapes. Inspiration for his scenes comes from macro-worlds and from fascinating views from scan electron microscope. “For “Growth of cubic bacteria’, Vaclav wanted to create an... read more “The sun, the moon and the stars would have disappeared long ago… had they happened to be within the reach of predatory human hands.” ~Havelock Ellis “Graduated from the Ecole des Mines de Nancy, a top French engineering school.
Since first covering the photography of Russian biologist Alexander Semenov ( previously ) back in January his self-directed “ Underwater Experiments ” series has continued unabated as he releases other-worldy shots of the Earth’s most elusive creatures almost daily. Again and again Semenov captures some of the most jaw-dropping photographs of underwater life I’ve ever seen, most frequently an animal called lion’s mane jellyfish (Cyanea capillata) which is the largest known species of jellyfish in the world. What you see here only scratches the surface of his work over the last couple of months, definitely urge you to get lost in his underwater gallery. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
National Geographic is currently holding its annual photo contest , with the deadline for submissions coming up on November 30. For the past nine weeks, the society has been gathering and presenting galleries of submissions, encouraging readers to vote for them as well. National Geographic was kind enough to let me choose among its entries from 2011 for display here on In Focus.
Seeing with Photography Collective is a group of photographers based in New York City who are visually impaired, sighted and totally blind. Coming from diverse backgrounds and life experiences, we share an awareness of sight loss, along with the determination to dialogue and integrate our images into a more universal context. Sighted assistants focus and compose the view camera’s frame directed by the blind artist. Then, in a darkened room, we leave the camera’s shutter open as we slowly paint our sitter with a small flashlight ...human scaled exposures, lasting many minutes, rather than the instant shutter click we typically hear.

Двухэтажная квартира в центре Киева с лофтовым интерьером, террасой на крыше, итальянской мебелью и стеной из растений. На стене, где по проекту дома должна была размещаться пожарная лестница, оставили ступени. Благодаря подсветке и тёмному прозрачному полу создаётся ощущение, что перекрытие здесь отсутствует. Декоративную стену сделали из простых досок, которые скрепили между собой в хаотичном порядке и покрасили в белый цвет.

RGB Experimental Music Laboratory / MacOSX and Windows Version This application was put together Kenji Kojima 's RGB Music Project studies. RGB Music Project is a composite artwork of visuals, music and technologies that converts visual data into a music in attempts to discover relation between visuals and musics. The project core is the development of software RGB MusicLab. RGB MusicLab converts RGB (Red, Green and Blue) value of an image and surface points (X, Y, Z) of 3D object to chromatic scale sounds.
