Drzach & Suchy: shadow cloud A shadow cloud is a three-dimensional object, consisting of multiple shadow-casting elements semi-randomly arranged in three dimensions in such a way, that depending on the direction of illumination the overall shadow of the cloud displays various images encoded in it. A shadow cloud can be viewed as a generalization of shadow casting panels, but of course the basic idea of multiple shadows from one three-dimensional structure is already present in well-known GEB-triples. However, in contrast to GEB-triplets, a shadow cloud can encode up to four arbitrary images and display them under appropriate illumination without any distortions. The idea of shadow clouds can be summarized as follows: the shadow cast by flat, thin elements depends on their relation to the direction of illumination: elements perpendicular to illumination cast clear shadows, while the shadows of elements parallel to illumination are practically invisible.

Steve Jobs Was Not God Thank you for this. This sums up my feelings in a very neat package, though it fails to mention several things. Jobs may have been a great innovator of technology and kept the industry moving in terms of developing newer and better product and cutting edge technology, but he wasn't the greatest tech genius alive. He wasn't even a very nice person from the reports of several magazines and the general talk around Silicon Valley. He cut the philanthropy programs at Apple when he resumed control in 1997. He was also indicted (but never found guilty) of fraud and embezzlement for shady business practices that occurred at Apple. He kept a tight control over the workings of Apple and belitttled his employee for failing to achieve the high demands he consistently set. Even when his products were not the best around, he still attempted to spindoctor the product's image to keep it important. Jobs and Apple have a much darker side that everyone has overlooked in the wake of all of his i-devices.

Mind-Blowing Installation Makes You Feel Like You’re Walking On A Cloud I waited in line for two hours Saturday to slip on a pair of hospital booties and spend a few minutes, maybe 5 minutes tops, milling around a white room. And you know what? It was totally worth the wait. That’s because Doug Wheeler’s new installation at the David Zwirner gallery in New York is the closest I’ll ever get to satisfying a desire I’ve had since childhood: to float on a puffy white cloud. The installation is called rather unromantically SA MI 75 DZ NY, and it’s precisely what I’ve described--a white room and little else. The effect dies after a moment (turn around and you’ll notice a bunch of mood-killing lights and--eek! SA MI 75 DZ NY is Wheeler’s fourth so-called “infinity environment”--expansive, all-white rooms that evoke the sensation of entering an infinite void. I suspect that what drew people to Irwin’s artwork decades ago is the same thing that inspired legions to wait two hours (or more) at the David Zwirner gallery on Saturday.

Mystery of the wishing trees studded with coins that ¿can take illness away from the sick¿ By Emma Reynolds Updated: 06:07 GMT, 13 September 2011 They say money doesn't grow on trees. But it certainly appears to do so on the mysterious coin-studded trunks dotted around the UK's woodland. The strange phenomenon of gnarled old trees with coins embedded all over their bark has been spotted on trails from the Peak District to the Scottish Highlands. Tree-mendous: A money tree with copper and silver coins hammered into the wood near Ingleton, North Yorkshire The coins are usually knocked into felled tree trunks using stones by passers-by, who hope it will bring them good fortune. These fascinating spectacles often have coins from centuries ago buried deep in their bark and warped by the passage of time. The tradition of making offerings to deities at wishing trees dates back hundreds of years, but this combination of the man-made and the natural is far more rare. Tin and timber: The coins make tree trunk look almost like a heap of treasure
