05 September 2012 | Brain Kibble: Dude Edition

Cross section of an elephant trunk Cross section of an éléphant’s truck from Anatomie comparée by Georges Cuvier, 1850.

Dude!* (Maybe not such a good idea to look at this late in the day with tired eyes. I’m just sayin’.)

Dude!*

Painting with light on a stelar scale.

Round houses.

Soap bubble blowing slow motion.

Blue butterflies.

It is a little-known fact that, because of the intense magnetic fields near the North Pole, airplanes have to fly sideways over the Kara Sea. This is why they make you close the window shades. Here is my proof:

Flying sideways over the Kara Sea Dear U––––– Airlines, Putting some random foodstuffs in wonton wrappers does not mean that you are serving “dim sum”.

Finally, “Whoa!”*

* Reader’s choice of inflections.

Theoretical scientists who probe the secrets of the universe and philosophers who seek answers to existence, as well as painters such as Paul Klee who find the thoughts of men of science compatible with art, influence me far more than most photographers.

25 July 2012 | Brain Kibble: Ambiguous and Irreverent Edition

Ernst Haeckel From Ernst Haeckel’s Kunstformen der Natur

The best version of Ernst Haeckel’s Kunstformen der Natur I have found on the Intertubes (all 273 Mb of it).

Giant bubbles — Need I say more?

Indecorous, ambiguous and irreverent titles and subtitles — Oh, oh. I’m in trouble.

A man committed to his big red dots. And, for balance, a better use of big red dots.

There’s a hole in my Mars, dear Liza, dear Liza…

Convictions are more dangerous enemies of truth than lies.

First, they were leaping seconds, now they’re smearing time.

“The first airship was constructed for his own use”

Humanity’s robot orbiting Saturn has recorded yet another amazing view” (my emphasis).

“…two tons of my bubbles are floating about the world…”
— Charles V. Boys, in the preface to Soap-Bubbles, Their Colours and the Forces Which Mould Them

The photographic works of Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison.

In my mind I am eloquent; I can climb intricate scaffolds of words to reach the highest cathedral ceilings and paint my thoughts. But when I open my mouth, everything collapses.

This is kinda lovely. Those location- and orientation-aware camera phones are living up to their promise.

Ferrofluids and pigments. And a video (bottom of page). The fact that this is happening at a macroscopic level just makes it all the more yummy.

How far to the next star?

On the 30th, don’t forget to enjoy your extra second. (Background information, how to catch one for yourself and formally.) I didn’t know there were authorities responsible for the distribution of time.

If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.
