I've been experimenting with lights and my camera recently - and here's what I've managed to do so far. There are a few other pictures of that kind, that could be used as textures or perhaps someone can animate them. I couldn't decide whether to upload them as individual RECords (and then gather them in one album) or put them together in a zip file, but eventually chose the first option (just thought it's easier when you can see right away what's there). So please, revise it, refine it, use it however you like:)
Q. What is the de sidere fruit?
A. The de sidere fruit is a very special type of fruit that grows only under waterfalls. It cannot be bought or sold, cultured or harvested. Lovers give each other this fruit in the autumn to show their devotion. The skin of it is peeled away and the heart eaten, piece by piece, down through the thorny core of it. If the fruit is eaten by an untrue lover, the core will pierce its way out, through the stomach and the skin, until none of it remains in the body.
The fruit is a deep red, like blood. It is at once romantic and horrifying, as an obsessive lover.
Q. What does the de sidere fruit taste like?
A. It is sweet. It is tart. It consumes your stomach and coats your thoughts. It is the best thing you have ever eaten, but once it has left your tongue you will never again remember how it tasted.
Q. When was the fruit discovered?
A. It was discovered long before you were born.
Q. Where did the fruit come from?
A. It came from the stars.
Q. How long has the fruit been used?
A. The fruit can never be used. It may be borrowed or won, but it is not a thing to possess – only to hold.
Q. How long has the fruit been in use?
A. It has been in use since the sky first kissed the supernal lights, since the moon first chose to cast its shadow in the afterglow of the sun. It will be in use until the end of the earth spills over into the heavens, until the deepest song of the universe draws to its final note.
Q. When is the best time to pick the fruit?
A. The best time to pick the fruit is when the sunlight catches the water in the same manner that a rainbow is birthed.
Q. Is the fruit healthy to eat?
A. Some have been cured of lifelong illnesses by the property of the fruit. Others have wasted away from a single bite.
Q. How old must you be to partake of the fruit?
A. Older than you are now.
Q. What happened when the first fruit was eaten?
A. When the first fruit was eaten, the earth divided into seasons of frost and fever, and the first child was conceived.
Q. What happened when the second fruit was eaten?
A. No one knows what happened when the second fruit was eaten.
Q. Does the fruit exist?
A. The fruit exists.
Q. What does the fruit want?
A. The fruit wants the seasons to return to their glory, and the birds to re-learn how to fly. It wants the clouds to find slumber in the morning, and rainbows to find their roots in the earth.
Q. What makes the fruit so beautiful?
A. The fruit is beautiful because the people believe it is beautiful. If it were ugly, none would have seen it but the visionaries who search out the beauty in storm clouds.
These are basically leftover ideas from the name collage. Just polished them up a bit - didn't want them go to waste :)

this glorious, victorious, spontaneous celebration took place shortly after the final screening at sundance 2010. i think the joy everyone was feeling, at that moment, is evident in this little clip. <3
I know it's kinda late, but I made this for my Valentine on Valentines Day. It's an anatomical watercolor painting of, obviously, the heart. I labeled its parts using pieces of white paper and ink, and further tattooed its innards with memorable moments, places, dates, as well as future plans. And finally, I framed it. <3
Loved the drawing, so I colored it in (what else am I good for?) Really didn't intend for her to look like the Disney version, but there it is.
This is my digital enhancement of my random rec selection 349 by blueveil, Im new here and am not sure how to tag this so you can see her original RECord, any suggestons are appreciated...D
it began with a color,
green then orange,
a stirring sound, a growing feeling,
a spark of wonder, fear and hope, desire and faith, whirling and twirling amidst the mind
a shriek, a pop, a coo, a wail, a sigh
a sudden blur, a still calm, a swirlin bled
a whiz of expressions
then the realization,
the confusion, the loss, the explanation....
... it was all a dream

One of the photos I took at the Philadelphia Flower Show in Feb of this year.
This was the first year that I ever went (well that I remember anyways). It was really nice... so many beautiful flowers :)
This is an execution of an idea that came to me the other day -
On tumblr I saw a picture of an open book and someone had written a large message over the text. At first I didn't know if I was supposed to read the words all on the left page and then continue to the right page (as you read a book) or if I was supposed to read it as a larger message just top to bottom (as you read a letter.) I started one way then realized it didn't make sense and figured out the other way was the correct one - but then I had this challenge in my head, if a message could be written so that it made sense no matter which way you chose to read it.
This is that challenge. I would have liked to be able to write something with a duality, where if you read it one way it means something and reading it the other way means the exact opposite... but I was having a tough time as it was, being as I'm not a writer so I thought I'd post this in hopes someone can more successfully execute this concept <3
Picture taken at Augsburg Park in Richfield, MN during the middle of the night. Kept the shutter open for 15 seconds to let enough light in. I thought the branches looked awesomely doomy :)
Wanting to get some sense of the actual spaces I was usually flying over, I did a fair amount of travel by train in the past year. This picture (taken somewhere between Montana and Wisconsin) makes me think of time, those telephone poles tick-tick-ticking from somewhere to somewhere else. I'm in love with the train. Ca-clack-ca-clack. Ca-clack-ca-clack.
Colour digital photo adjusted in Photoshop.
I took this footage yesterday morning, hope someone can find something they can do with it!
amferraro and i found the darkest, sketchiest alley we could and recorded this rendition of foreign sounds. we were only attacked once.
messing around with colours and images this morning, I hope this meets the red collab :)
I really like this effect, you slow your shutter speed down and then take the picture and focus in and out. You then get the shadows of whatever you are shooting.
We had some gorgeous skies the other day :) All the footage is raw. There has been zero color correction.
Music by the fab Meg Carnes.

Forming an art/performing collaborative in Pittsburgh, PA, and this is our name. Practicing swans/birds to further my scope in illustrating... things...
I was playing around with some food coloring the other day and I created this. I didn't mean to leave the audio in at first, but then I realized it sounded cool so I left it in. I hope someone can use this for something.
This is today's picture on my blog

this beautiful dutch 'tent' is one of the most beautiful venues I've been in, not least because of this gorgeous roof! apparently the speigeltent is one of two of it's kind in the whole world.
firey fodder for remixing (& for trying teaching myself how to use imovie).
eeep! not really sure what happened with the music on this one. it speeds up, slows down, gets all choppity-chop. it sounded fine before i converted it to an mp4 & uploaded it here. sad lisa. :0(
