17 March 2016 | Spectacular moonrise over Singapore

Moon Haze by Feng Jiacheng and Huang Yuanbei. As seen at “i light marina bay”, Singapore, 15 March 2016.

It’s only an inflated moon, resting on a man-made promotory…

When you live one degree off the Equator, the Moon looks so very big in the sky. I was so distracted, I completely missed the honky tonk parade…

When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stone-cutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it would split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before together.

09 March 2016 | Improvised eclipse

Actual size: 0.5cm or 1,392,684km, depending on how you measure it.

Aiyo! My eyes!

There was a solar eclipse today, captured here on a piece of paper in the Sandcrawler pantry through an improvised pinhole. (You wouldn’t have thought that the Jawas would have a pantry, would you?)

Perhaps the best cure for the fear of death is to reflect that life has a beginning as well as an end. There was a time when you were not: that gives us no concern. Why then should it trouble us that a time will come when we shall cease to be? To die is only to be as we were before we were born.

04 June 2012 | Rebooting this here blog, here...

Error establishing a database connection Fixed!

It has been a while, huh?

Lots of changes for me. Wrapped up four-and-one-half years of teaching in the Visual Effects department at Savannah College of Art and Design last May and then packed my bags for Singapore, where I am working as an in-house technical trainer for Lucasfilm. I am planning to be here for at least another year…

On the artwork front, momentum has built up on a very long-term project, Strange Attractions. Things are progressing nicely, but more on that soon…

A sneak peek at *Strange Attractions* Kenneth A. Huff; Strange Attractions series; 2012; final medium to be determined.

I have been doing some traveling…

Hong Kong…

So far…

Ellipsis-ly yours…


P.S. I snuck in some posts, earlier in the month (before the online version of this blog actually was functional and visible), regarding brain kibble and the use of quotations in this here blog, here. Sneaky, huh?

I have things in my head that are not like what anyone has taught me—shapes and ideas so near to me—so natural to my way of being and thinking that it hasn’t occurred to me to put them down.

24 May 2012 | Collected words

Over the years, I have amassed a collection of quotations, quips, aphorisms, turns of phrase, etc. that inspire me, remind me of the path I want to follow or just make me think. After each blog entry, there is a random selection from this collection.

Many of the quotations are related to creativity (any creative process). These often resonate deeply with me in my personal creative practice. Others are related to my/our place in this big, complicated world/universe.

If the words strike a chord in your noggin, I suggest that you do what I do — write them down somewhere, then and there. The same quotation won’t be in the same place for long…

You have been warned…

[Insert slightly-maniacal laughter here — along the lines of “Wah-ha-HA!”]

To left of the quotations, you will find wee little thumbnails of photographs, currently from my 2006 Fallen forms, found series. Click on the thumbnail to see a larger version. Like the quotations, these images will move around…

Human potential is the same for all. Your feeling, “I am of no value”, is wrong. Absolutely wrong. You are deceiving yourself. We all have the power of thought – so what are you lacking? If you have willpower, then you can change anything. It is usually said that you are your own master.

27 July 2009 | Back from Singapore

I just returned from a five-week visit to Singapore. I was invited by Lucasfilm Animation Singapore to do some training for the apprentices in their Jedi Masters Program. While there, I also gave seminar presentations on my body of work, a behind-the-scenes, technical look at the same, and on stereoscopic imaging (its history, some important technical concepts and the creation of anaglyphic images from photography).

Here is one of my photographs from Singapore that was shown during the stereoscopic imaging presentation. We found this wonderful display of waylang golek puppets in a Singapore store, Mata-Hari. I took the photograph as a stereoscopic pair and it is presented here first as one of the original photographs and second as an anaglyph.

I had the opportunity to visit and present my work to a number of schools during my time in Singapore, including Egg Story Digital Arts School, the Temasek Design School at Temasek Polytechnic, the School of Interactive and Digital Media at Nanyang Polytechnic, the School of Digital Media and Infocomm Technology and the School of Design at Singapore Polytechnic, Intense Animation Academy and SAE Institute Singapore.

Lucasfilm Animation also sponsored a public lecture at the studio.
