Beautifully Offbeat Photography (13 photos) Samuel Bradley's photos cannot be neatly categorized. Wonderfully offbeat and somewhat quirky, they truly span the spectrum. As he tells us, "I'm battling with two different ways of working and I don't know which one I prefer. He continues, "Then there's the other side of my work that I think I've only really just begun to explore. I asked Bradley to share the story behind the man and the wolf photo we featured a few days ago (see above). "In all honesty I wasn't happy with the project as a whole, but I got three of my strongest and most popular photographs out of it. If you love Samuel's beautifully off-beat photos, you can pick up one of his prints exclusively over at our online art store, My Modern Shop.

Another 20 games that make you think about life First we gave you five. Then we gave you ten. Now we are giving you 20 games that make you think about life. As with our previous lists, we have focused mainly on free games that you can play in your browser. 1 Elude Developed by Singapore-MIT Gambit Game Lab, Elude is a dark, atmospheric game that aims to shed light on the nature of depression. The forest that you start the game in represents a normal mood. This is a gloomy underground cavern, with a sticky muddy base that sucks you down. 2 Air Pressure You will have to play through Air Pressure - a Flash port of an interactive novel by Bentosmile - more than once to truly understand the characters and themes in this game. 3 Symon Another impressive production by Singapore-MIT Gambit Game Lab, Symon is a point-and-click adventure game with a difference. You also get to solve a lot of puzzles. 4 Ulitsa Dimitrova The Russians have never been the most cheery people. 5 Ute I am not quite sure what to make of this game. 6 Aether 8 Yet One Word

CleanTechnica: Cleantech innovation news and views It is possible to understand Engineers - Where there's a will, there's a way. Understanding Engineers #1 Two engineering students were biking across a university campus when one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?" The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday, minding my own business, when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike, threw it to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want." The first engineer nodded approvingly and said, "Good choice, The clothes probably wouldn't have fit you anyway." Understanding Engineers #2 To the optimist, the glass is half-full. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be. Understanding Engineers #3 A priest, an ophthalmologist, and an engineer were golfing one morning behind a particularly slow group of golfers. The engineer fumed, "What's with those guys? The doctor chimed in,"I don't know, but I've never seen such inept golf!" The priest said, "Here comes the greens keeper. He said, "Hello, George. The greens keeper replied, "Oh, yes. They were silent for a moment.

Tron Legacy (2010) Year: 2010 Tron Legacy permalink I spent a half year writing software art to generate special effects for Tron Legacy, working at Digital Domain with Bradley "GMUNK" Munkowitz, Jake Sargeant, and David "dlew" Lewandowski. This page has taken a long time to be published because I've had to await clearance. A lot of my team's work was done using Adobe software and Cinema 4D. The rest of it got written in C++ using OpenFrameworks and wxWidgets, the way I've always done it with this team ;) Uniquely however, Digital Domain's CG artists were able to port my apps over to Houdini for further evolution and better rendering than OpenGL could ever provide. Interview with GMUNK about the team's process In addition to visual effects, I was asked to record myself using a unix terminal doing technologically feasible things. HexVirus is a spherical map of the globe that features vector outlines of the continents. The scoreboard was the first element I worked on. Fireworks, mmmm.

Play Nintendo | Games Online SNES and NES Emulator Ten games that make you think about life - StumbleUpon At the start of this year, we decided to come up with a list of Flash casual games with a philosophical bent. To be honest, we struggled. After days of research, we could only find a handful of games that had the thought-provoking depth we were looking for. Our list (which you can view by clicking here) was therefore only five games long. Fast forward to now, and it is remarkable how much difference a few months can make. Thanks to the work of pioneers like Daniel Benmergui, Gregory Weir and PixelAnte, there is now an abundance of clever arty Flash games to pique our intellects, and as a result creating this follow-up list of games that make you think has been a doddle. In a wonderful twist, it seems it is the Flash gaming space - until now known more for the throwaway nature of its games rather than depth - that is leading the way in this exciting new area of gaming, as we hope the following games prove. 1Immortall The game starts with you crash landing on a planet. 2Loved 5Coma 6Loondon

SUBNORMALITY! All content copyright Winston Rowntree, 2015. Museum previously seen here and then here. MyLifeIsAverage - Life is pretty normal today The Art of OaKoAk Some of the best street art has humor built into it. In the case of French street artist, OaKoAk, they take what the city gives to them and creates a witty street piece. Who hasn't wanted to turn a tile doorstep into a piano, or a sewer cover into a Viking's shield? A lot of these pieces are simple statements done very well. We like the Gameboy one especially.
