Hotel Room Photos : Ace Hotel Portland Ace Hotel Portland is built on the site of the historic Clyde Hotel. Built in 1912, the Clyde doubled as a station for the Oregon Electric Streetcar, and it’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Clyde is also notable as the setting for scenes in the Gus Van Sant film 'Drugstore Cowboy.' Ace Hotel Portland is inside the Burnside Triangle of downtown Portland.

Jheronimus Bosch - de Tuin der Lusten the spatiality of the database Lostalgic Lostalgic This project is based on the entire ABC's LOST TV show scripts, 115 episodes in 7 seasons, that I managed to parse from Lostpedia. I also parsed this page with additional information about hidden characters relations. My aim for this project is not (only) to visualize some properties and patterns out of the script but actually to allow to read and enjoy the series in a different way. I plan to add new views (will inform through twitter), more aimed to reveal global patterns in the script, and I will include cliffhangers and writing teams information. Find more information about Lostalgic in this great article and interview by Greg J. This project is dedicated to the Lost writers, to the open culture and, in particular, to the community that built Lostpedia. created by Santiago Ortiz

If you do, using the medium becomes an empty choice. The story could just as easily be told in a 2D movie. ‘Breaking’ the fourth wall in VR isn’t possible, because there is no fourth wall to begin with So, how to make your story relevant to the medium? Now, what are those specific aspects of VR I keep talking about? Another aspect of VR is the fact that it’s about putting the viewer in an other reality (I haven’t got a word for that one yet but I am open to suggestions). Back to presence. VR might be resolving the ‘bystander effect’ of movies. When you’re watching a movie in a movie theater, you are still part of a crowd, not involved in the lives of the characters on screen. Focussing on empathy is a good way to make the use of the medium relevant, as it is a big part of what the medium stands for.
