40 Examples of stunning Cinemagraphs
Cinemagraphs are still images that contain within themselves living elements allowing a glimpse of time to be experienced and preserved. Cinemagraph is a technique of blending the effects of images and videos. It was introduced by a New York fashion photographer Jamie Beck, in collaboration with motion graphics designer Kevin Burg. Since then, many other designers have created similar forms of cinemagraphs. Cinemagraphs are typically simply created as animated .gif files making them easy to use on a web page. In this article, I feature stunning examples of cinemagraphs for your inspiration. A cinemagraph is simply a .gif file (could also be a video) with more artistic feel that the regular .gif you see everywhere. To greate a cinemagraph you need a good quality picture that look great as a still photo.

Evolution du contrepoint (partie III) : L’école franco-flamande et l’émergence du sentiment harmonique [Le Mensuel de Polyphonies n°56 - Juillet 2011] partie I : de l’organum au motet médiéval partie II : de de l’isorythmie au canon. partie III : L’école franco-flamande et l’émergence du sentiment harmonique Nous voilà au XVe siècle. Jusque là, la dissonance est traitée avec une certaine approximation. Apportant une plus grande souplesse dans la mélodie et dans le rythme, les musiciens anglais généralisent le contrepoint imitatif en reprenant un même motif mélodique successivement aux autres voix. Tout en affinant le goût de la consonance, l’élaboration de ces techniques contrapuntiques autorise une démultiplication des voix, qui atteint des sommets : trente six dans Le Deo Gratias d’Ockeghem (1430 †1495 ou 1496), et même quarante voix dans l’admirable Spem in alium de Tallis (1505 † 1585) ! La disposition des voix se précise pour s’adapter aux nouvelles contraintes sonores et acoustiques qui résultent de cette démultiplication des parties vocales. cantus (ex déchant) qui deviendra le soprano ténor qui deviendra notre ténor

Giacometti, le descendant des Etrusques Quand il s’installe à Paris pour continuer ses études artistiques, Alberto Giacometti est déjà peintre et sculpteur. A l’académie de la Grande Chaumière, à Montparnasse, il devient l’élève de Bourdelle. Pour donner de la matière à son regard, il va tous les dimanches au musée du Louvre. Et lorsque ce musée organise une grande exposition sur les Etrusques en 1955, Giacometti commence à se détourner du cubisme de ses débuts pour plonger dans l’univers artistique de ce peuple de l’Antiquité. Les Etrusques ne vont plus quitter le sculpteur suisse. L'Ombre du Soir pour la première fois hors d'Italie Le clou de l’exposition parisienne est la présentation de L’Ombre du Soir, un bronze étrusque de 57 centimètres de haut réalisé 350 ans avant Jésus-Christ. Dans l’une des vitrines de l’exposition, trois statuettes de même taille cultivent la correspondance entre le travail de l’artiste suisse et celui des Etrusques.

Logogrammes (et perception) Il est deux manières de visiter l’exposition des Logogrammes de Christian Dotremont à Pompidou jusqu’au 2 janvier, deux rythmes qu’il faut alterner. D’abord errer dans les salles comme dans un paysage blanc, lumineux, étendue neigeuse sur laquelle s’inscrivent des signes, des traits, des courbes noires : sont-ce des sillons, des arbres, des traces de vie ? On passe insensiblement, dès la première salle, du paysage dépouillé à l’écriture, les arbres deviennent des lettres, on ne sait quoi déchiffrer, hésitant entre idéogramme, cunéiforme, coufique ou arabe cursif : motifs abstraits, certes, mais aussi signifiants, puis que Dotremont ‘écrit’ un texte de la sorte, qu’il répète très lisiblement au crayon en bas de sa feuille, et que le cartel reprend une troisième fois. son compatriote Henry Michaux (car Dotremont écrit un texte, d’un coup, d’un jet qui peut évoquer l’Action painting par sa brusquerie, sa sauvagerie, mais sans s’abstraire du sens, à la différence de Michaux).

Franck Dubosc, élu désespoir masculin du cinéma Judith Godrèche, Franck Dubosc, Jane Birkin, Jean Dujardin, Richard Berry, Arielle Dombasle et Isabelle Mergault ont reçu un prix en 2011, mais pet-être pas celui qu'ils espéraient. Lundi, ce sont les irrévérencieux Gérard du Cinéma qui étaient décernés, en direct sur Paris Première. Les Gérard du désespoir féminin et masculin ont ainsi été décernés à Jane Birkin dans le film Thelma, Louise et Chantal, et à Franck Dubosc pour Camping 2. Le Gérard du plus mauvais film de l'année a récompensé L'Immortel de Richard Berry, avec Jean Reno. Ces prix potaches aux intitulés improbables récompensent «les plus gros navets du 7e art tricolore», selon les organisateurs à l'origine aussi des Gérard de la Télévision. Le «Gérard du film où on t'explique que le racisme, c'est pas bien !» Isabelle Mergault est la lauréate du «Gérard du réalisateur, quand tu vois ses films, ben t'as du mal à réaliser. Pour la première fois, les «Gérard de la Politique» seront décernés le 10 mai. (source AFP)

Anti-government protests around the world (big photo gallery) A girl attends Friday prayers in front of an army tank in Tahrir Square. Egyptians held a nationwide "Victory March" on Friday to celebrate the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak's 30-year rule one week ago, to protect the revolution and to remind new military rulers of the power of the street. Hundreds of thousands joined the rallies, which are also a memorial to the 365 people who died in the 18-day uprising, with many Egyptians expressing their intention to guard their newly-won prospect of democracy. (REUTERS/Suhaib Salem) A demonstrator shows his T-shirt that features the star and crescent symbol and reads "Yes We Can" during a protest against the regime of Libya's leader Muammar Gaddafi outside the Libyan Embassy in Berlin, February 21, 2011. More photos follow, from Algeria, Yemen, Bahrain, Iraq, and other nations throughout Africa and the Middle East where the "revolution virus" is spreading.

Wolfram Programming Cloud: Introducing a Programming Revolution Combine and Conquer Because everything in the Wolfram Language is coherently built in, you can routinely combine functionality from vastly different areas, opening up a new level of programming and algorithm innovation. Insert Visualization Anywhere The Wolfram Language makes it trivial to insert aesthetically optimized static or dynamic visualization anywhere—bringing any aspect of your program to life. Leverage the World's Knowledge In the Wolfram Language, data and models from thousands of domains are built in, so your code can immediately know about and compute with real-world constructs. Computer Science is Built In The design and automation of the Wolfram Language makes using advanced computer science methods and data structures routine—even if you never took classes about them. Programming with Patterns Mix In Natural Language The Wolfram Language has access to the whole linguistic system used in Wolfram|Alpha—so you can immediately make your program understand natural language.
