Vintage Travel Posters and Relative Dimension in Space Whether the Doctor and crew rarely ending up where the meant to visit is a result of the Doctor not being able to drive the TARDIS or the TARDIS taking him where he needs to be out of its own volition, our favorite Time Lord generally ends up impacting the most important bits of human history. Sometimes he ends up in England, saving Shakespeare from alien witches, and sometimes he offhandedly mentions how he might’ve married Marilyn Monroe on accident. Sometimes he ends up in Space Florida for a nice Spacecation, and sometimes he ends up in India, seeing the sights without having to save the universe. We rarely see those vacations, since a nice rest probably wouldn’t make a thrilling adventure, but rest assured, if it exists, the Doctor has (or will have) been there. (Andrew Le via Super Punch)

Photographer Captures An Underwater Dance Of Colors The shapes displayed in Luka Klikovac’s work look like colored smoke, or maybe strange deep-sea creatures, but they’re actually mixtures of colored and black liquids immersed in water. The Serbian photographer’s photo series is called Demersal and was based on the unique motions resulting from the combination of fluids. To create this psychedelic effect, the photographer used nothing but his camera and lights capable of showing the dance of fluid shapes captured by his lenses. No digital editing resources were used afterwards, so what you see in the images are actually the precise moments when the two elements were combined. Klikovac said that the goal of his work is to create images that allow people to escape from their daily routine and that his underwater shapes should be interpreted like the Rorschach inkblot test.
Hockney-Falco thesis A diagram of the camera obscura from 1772. According to the Hockney–Falco thesis, such devices were central to much of the great art from the Renaissance period to the dawn of modern art. The hypothesis that technology was used in the production of Renaissance Art was not much in dispute in early studies and literature. The 1929 Encyclopedia Britannica contained an extensive article on the Camera obscura and cited Leon Battista Alberti as the first documented user of the device as early as 1437. The discussion started by the Hockney-Falco thesis ignored the abundant evidence for widespread use of various technical devices, at least in the Renaissance, and, e.g., Early Netherlandish painting. Setup of the 2001 publication Part of Hockney's work involved collaboration with Charles Falco, a condensed matter physicist and an expert in optics.
