Kai is shopping at Whole Food Super Market.

Human Behavior in Military Park

 Kai was biking along the walk way around the playground to search for kids to play with.

 Kai was biking a little faster when he saw some kids on the bench far away.

 Kai was passing by a young man.

Kai was glad to see two kids and a man sitting on a bench.

 He had to bike harder against the wind while a lady walked by his side.

 Kai came up to the two kids he saw from far away.

 He passed the two kids and a man.

 Kai found an empty bench and parked his bike near the two kids. “Grandma can I have the ball. I would like to ask those kids if they would like to play ball with me.” Kai asked me for his ball that we brought with us. Kai walked toward the two kids and the man on the bench. Then I saw the man get up and walk away, followed by the two kids. I was not sure that Kai even had a chance to ask them.

 I was sad to see the disappointed look on Kai’s face.

 I told kai that there are some kids playing at the other end of playground. They might like you to play with them. Kai did not hesitate, he marched to the group of kids with his blue ball.

 Kai found a young boy to play ball with him.

 Kai joined in playing with the other kids.

 Bubbles were floating in the air!!!

 Kai was talking to a girl.

 The young boy returned Kai’s ball and he said, “I like you.”

 Kai helped the girl to ride on his bike.

 The girl probably said, thanks, or goodbye to Kai.

As a grandmother who love her grandson, I am delighted that Kai had friends to play with and even happier to see Kai’s generosity toward others. It is easier to raise a child to be physically healthy by giving the best healthy food to the child. It is important to nurture a child to be mentally aware and kind. However, sometimes it come from the person’s inner being. In some cases, even though the parents or people around the child show or teach the child to be good, we still have bad people in our society. If these bad people happen to be in high positions in the country, then trouble will come to a lot of people or even it will affect the whole wide world.

The Passage of Time Captured in Layered Landscape Collages by Fong Qi Wei

August 5, 2013  Christopher Jobson

Time can be a difficult variable to visually convey in still photography, both the length of time an exposure takes or a series of photos meant to depict the passage of time can be somewhat ambiguous without a written explanation. In his latest series, Time is a dimension, Singapore-based photographer Fong Qi Wei (previously) explores just that idea by shooting landscapes from a stationary position over a 2-4 hour period and then digitally slicing the images to create a layered collage. He shoots at sunset or sunrise to obtain a wide variation in light and then carefully cuts each image to reveal incremental timeframes. He explains:

Similarly, our experience of a scene is more than a snapshot. We often remember a sequence of events rather than a still frame full of details. In this series, I strive to capture both details and also a sequence of time in a single 2 dimensional canvas. I hope it gives you pause and reconsider what you experience versus what you shoot with your next camera phone.

You can see many more examples on his website, and read more about his process right here.

Animated Photo Collages by Qi Wei Fong Shimmer to Life as Time Passes

Chinatown Sunset, 2013

Several months ago we featured a photographic series called Time is a Dimension by artist Qi Wei Fong that depicted layered collages of landscapes and cityscapes photographed over a 2-4 hour period. Fong has since taken the project a step further by animating the images in this new series called Time in Motion. The new photos, shot in locations around China, Indonesia, and Bali show the change in light at sunrise or sunset through angular rays and concentric circles that shimmer as time passes. You can see more from the series on his website.

Neurologist and author Oliver Sacks brings our attention to Charles Bonnet syndrome — when visually impaired people experience lucid hallucinations. He describes the experiences of his patients in heartwarming detail and walks us through the biology of this under-reported phenomenon.

This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.

About the speaker

Oliver Sacks · Neurological anthropologist

Since “Awakenings” stormed the bestseller lists (and the silver screen), Oliver Sacks has become an unlikely household name, single-handedly inventing the genre of neurological anthropology.

Vilayanur Ramachandran tells us what brain damage can reveal about the connection between celebral tissue and the mind, using three startling delusions as examples.

About the speaker

Vilayanur Ramachandran · Brain expert

Neurologist V.S. Ramachandran looks deep into the brain’s most basic mechanisms. By working with those who have very specific mental disabilities caused by brain injury or stroke, he can map functions of the mind to physical structures of the brain.

Neuroscientist and inventor Christopher deCharms demonstrates a new way to use fMRI to show brain activity — thoughts, emotions, pain — while it is happening. In other words, you can actually see how you feel.

When a viewer gets close to this flower-filled space, the flowers close to the viewer rise upwards all at once, creating a hemispherical space with the viewer at its center. In other words, although the whole space is filled with flowers, a hemispherical space is constantly being created with the viewer at its center and the viewer is free to move around wherever they want. If many viewers get close to one another, the dome spaces link up to form one single space. In this interactive floating flower garden viewers are immersed in flowers, and become completely one with the garden itself. Over 2,300 floating flowers bloom in the space. These flowers are alive and growing with each passing day. Each flower has a partner insect and the scent of the flowers becomes stronger at the time that the insect is most active, as a result the scent of the air in the garden space changes according to the time of day, morning, noon, and evening. Japanese Zen gardens are said to have been born as a place for Zen priests to carry out training so that they can become one with nature, the garden is a microcosm of the vastness of the surrounding natural mountain areas where they gathered to train. There is a Zen k?an in china (a question or story that is part of a Zen priests theological training) called, “Nansen’s Flower”. A man named Rikukô Taifu, while talking with Nansen, said, “Jô Hoshi says, ‘Heaven and I are of the same root. All things and I are of the same substance.’ How wonderful this is!”. Nansen, pointing at a flower in the garden said, “People of these days see this flower as if they were in a dream.” A person will become integrated with a flower when they look at a flower and the flower looks at them, possibly at this time the person will truly see the flower for the first time. https://www.team-lab.net/w/ffgarden/ ?Floating Flower Garden; ????????????? / Floating Flower Garden; Flowers and I are of the same root, the Garden and I are one

An Immersive Digitally-Controlled Installation of 2,300 Suspended Flowers by Japanese Art Collective teamLab

March 25, 2015  Johnny Waldman

Currently on display in Tokyo is “Floating Flower Garden,” an immersive, interactive installation of blossoming vegetation. Visitors enter a room filled with floating flowers. But as you approach them the flowers rise into the air, creating an air bubble within the dense forest. Multiple visitors can move through the installation at once as the flowers move away from them and surround them. “In this interactive floating flower garden viewers are immersed in flowers, and become completely one with the garden itself.” Think of it as Rain Room but with flowers.

Floating Flower Garden is the latest installation by TeamLab, a Japanese art collective of “ultra-technologists” lead by Toshiyuki Inoko. They’re currently staging a large-scale retrospective of work at Miraikan in Tokyo. The show has been so popular that it got extended for 2 months and this piece was installed as an encore. It’s currently on view, along with the rest of the show, through May 1, 2015.

Layers: A Mesmerizing New Animation by Maxim Zhestkov

December 3, 2018  Kate Sierzputowski

Layers is a new 4K digital art film by Russian director Maxim Zhestkov (previously) which follows amutating black cube as colorful layers are revealed inside, showcasing a stark contrast between its surface and core. Several iterations of the black monolith are bisected by an invisible force, showcasing purples, greens, reds, and a bright blue that fills the largest area at the structures’ center. The objects float through fictional gallery spaces (like we’ve seen in previous films Elements and Volumes) presenting each as impossible sculptures that can only be produced by digital means. Layers is the fourth film Zhestkov has launched since 2017. You can view other art films from his series, and keep up with future projects on VimeoInstagram, and Behance.

Sleep is your life-support system and Mother Nature’s best effort yet at immortality, says sleep scientist Matt Walker. In this deep dive into the science of slumber, Walker shares the wonderfully good things that happen when you get sleep — and the alarmingly bad things that happen when you don’t, for both your brain and body. Learn more about sleep’s impact on your learning, memory, immune system and even your genetic code — as well as some helpful tips for getting some shut-eye.

This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.

About the speaker

Matt Walker · Sleep scientist, professor, author

Matt Walker is a brain scientist trying to understand why we sleep.

In the United States, it’s estimated that 30 percent of adults and 66 percent of adolescents are regularly sleep-deprived. This isn’t just a minor inconvenience: staying awake can cause serious bodily harm. Claudia Aguirre shows what happens to your body and brain when you skip sleep.

Money, luxury and fame – the new super-rich of India | DW Documentary

DW Documentary    Published on Feb 20, 2019

Only the US and China currently have more billionaires than India. Some of them are as famous as pop stars and enjoy similar adulation. Their social media accounts have millions of followers – in a country where more than half the population lives below the poverty line and has no electricity or fresh water. India’s super-rich have been dubbed the “new maharajas.” The sources of their seemingly unlimited wealth are almost as varied as their values and lifestyles. 23-old Evan Luthra uses his father’s seed capital to invest in new ideas in the software industry. He loves luxury, meets the young moneyed elite in fashionable destinations around the world, and is active on all the social networks. Abhimanyu Alsisar, nephew of the Maharajah of Jaipur, runs a chain of luxury hotels in the ancient palaces of India and invests in music events. Kalpana Saroj comes from the lowest caste in India and has worked her way up from destitution to become a multimillionaire – but she never forgets her background, and helps impoverished farmers in her homeland with medical care and gifts of money. Vijay Mallya even bought his own Formula 1 racing team, but faces a long prison sentence for fraudulent bankruptcy and tax evasion should he return to India. The documentary is the result of six months of investigative research and offers a deep insight into the everyday and professional lives of India’s super-rich.

Isaac Asimov on why YOUR Ignorance doesn’t equal MY Ignorance…

In every century people have thought they understood the Universe at last, and in every century they were proven to be wrong. It follows that the one thing we can say about out modern “knowledge” is that it is wrong.

Socrates had said on learning that the Delphic oracle had proclaimed him the wisest man in Greece. “If I am the wisest man,” said Socrates, “it is because I alone know that I know nothing.” 

The basic trouble, you see, is that people think that “right” and “wrong” are absolute; that everything that isn’t perfectly and completely right is totally and equally wrong.

Let me dispose of Socrates because I am sick and tired of this pretense that knowing you know nothing is a mark of wisdom.

No one knows nothing. In a matter of days, babies learn to recognize their mothers. Socrates would agree, of course, and explain that knowledge of trivia is not what he means.

He means that in the great abstractions over which human beings debate, one should start without preconceived, unexamined notions.

Now where do we get the notion that “right” and “wrong” are absolutes? 

Young children learn spelling, for instance, and here we tumble into apparent absolutes.

How do you spell “sugar?” Suppose Alice spells it p-q-z-z-f and Genevieve spells it s-h-u-g-e-r. Both are wrong, but is there any doubt that Alice is more wrong than Genevieve?

When people thought the Earth was flat, they were wrong. When people thought the Earth was spherical, they were wrong.

But if you think that thinking the Earth is spherical is just as wrong as thinking the Earth is flat, then your view is more wrong than both of them put together.

Black Holes and Our Solar System Documentary – The Universe and Space Exploration

Started streaming on May 11, 2019

How likely is it that a black hole could enter the Solar System? Well, you’d have to define likely; it is more likely that the Earth will get swallowed by a black hole than, say, winning the lottery ten times in a row, but less likely than being struck by lightning. In fact the odds of a black hole devouring our planet are estimated at one in a trillion. There are two predominant types of black hole in the universe. The first are supermassive black holes found churning at the centre of galaxies. These don’t really pose any threat to us, until our galaxy collides with another like the Andromeda galaxy in a few billion years.

Climate change: Fact or fiction? | Head to Head

Al Jazeera English   Published on May 16, 2016

Some scientists say the earth’s climate changes constantly and naturally, but the vast majority of them believe the current rise in global temperature is man-made, and could be catastrophic for the planet. But is all this but a case of extreme ‘climate alarmism’? Climate change sceptic Richard Lindzen is challenged on his view that concern about global warming is alarmist nonsense.

The battle against climate change by Paul Kingsnorth – Docu

vpro documentary   Published on Apr 26, 2019

Humanity has lost the battle against climate change. That is what Paul Kingsnorth thinks. The former environmental activist believes that we can´t stop climate change anymore. How should we live on knowing that climate change is a fact that can´t be denied anymore? A documentary that gives thinker and writer Paul Kingsnorth the time to explain how humanity still can be hopeful although the battle against climate change in his eyes has been lost. Former environmental activist and writer Paul Kingsnorth has withdrawn to Ireland on a unspoilt part of the earth. You could say that he lives now at the end of the world. A portrait of an end-time thinker who nevertheless does not give up hope and continues to believe in the power of nature. Thinker and writer Paul Kingsnorth stood early on the barricades as a conservationist. He resisted the insatiable hunger of the globalized world for more land, resources and things in England and on the other side of the world in Papa New Guinea. Kingsnorth was one of the leaders of the environmental movement and reached a large international audience with its passionate speeches. But at some point, he came to terms that he had to revisit his belief that humanity could save the world. In his bundled essays “Confessions of a recovering environmentalist” (2017) he describes how some weak-kneed accountants of this world hollowed out the green movement from the inside and exchanged the barricades for ties and conference tables. Limiting CO2 emissions became the new gospel because it was measurable and countable. But according to Kingsnorth, that is an illusion. He thinks that in his victory rush, the green movement of today exchanges the remaining wild nature for a wind or solar panel farm. The battle is lost. Kingsnorth withdrew with his family to the Irish countryside to live self-sufficient. He founded the “Dark Mountain Project” in which writers, poets and artists are looking for a different view of the end of the world, based on the connection between man and nature. He exchanged his clenched fist and protesting voice for an inner, literary search for the question of what makes us human and what our place is on this magical planet.

Michigan-based photographer Vincent Brady uses an elaborate 4-camera rig and lots of software to capture what he calls Planetary Panoramas. These are somewhat similar to the tiny planet videos we’ve seen the last few months, but the results are quite a bit more dramatic. He shares about his technique:

While experimenting with different photography tricks and techniques back in 2012, I was shooting 360 degree panoramas in the daytime and long exposures of the stars streaking in the sky at night. It suddenly became clear that the potential to combine the two techniques could be a trip! Since the Earth is rotating at a steady 1,040 mph I created a custom rig of 4 cameras with fisheye lenses to capture the entire night-sky in motion. Thus the images show the stars rotating around the north star as well as the effect of the southern pole as well and a 360 degree panorama of the scene on Earth. Each camera is doing nonstop long exposures, typically about 1 minute consecutively for the life of the camera battery. Usually about 3 hours. I then made a script to stitch all the thousands of these panoramas into this time-lapse.

You can learn more about how Brady makes these and see more of his photography over on his website. (via Colossal Submissions)

An immersive journey into Japanese art

Between two screenings of ‘Van Gogh: Starry Night’, discover a short programme focusing on Japanese art.
‘Dreamed Japan, Images of the Floating World’ offers visitors a journey into the Japan of the collective imagination—the Japan of the geishas, samurai warriors, and spirits. This production was inspired by the Japanese prints that began to circulate in Europe in the second half of the nineteenth century, when trade opened up between the West and Japan.

The discovery of Japanese art had a profound effect on Western art: the painting of the Impressionists and the avant-garde artists, and also the decorative arts, music, and dance. Among them, van Gogh gave free reign to his interest in japonisme. In Paris, he studied and bought Japanese prints from the art dealer Siegfried Bing. The culture of the Land of the Rising Sun influenced the use of line and colour and composition in his works. In Provence, he told his brother Théo that ‘everything has become Japanese in the southern light’.

This production by the Danny Rose Studio, which highlights van Gogh’s fascination with Japan, is a contemplative and audio journey into the environment of the masters of Japanese prints.

The ephemeral beauty of the cherry blossoms is replaced by a magical and mysterious forest inhabited by the ‘yokai’, the spirits of Japanese folklore, and then by the sea: Hokusai’s iconic great wave submerges the Atelier des Lumières accompanied by music by Claude Debussy
The faces of the charming geishas, dressed in their kimonos decorated with elegant and colourful motifs, emerge from behind the rice paper screens as in nature, where everything is about contrasts; after all this ethereal beauty, visitors are captivated by a samurai warrior dance and eventually brought back down and carried away by the wind, among the lanterns floating in the night sky.

The Danny Rose Studio provides a glimpse of the great diversity, richness, and modernity of these works (the Japanese artistic movement known as ukiyo-e, which began in the seventeenth century and did not end until the nineteenth century) and their authors (some of whom are well known by the general public, such as Hokusai, and others less so, such as Kuniyoshi, Utamaro, Kunisada, etc.). The Danny Rose Studio also carried out considerable production and creative work in order to bring to life the imaginary Japan evoked by these works for visitors.

Particular attention was paid to the choice of music, from Ryuichi Sakamoto to Claude Debussy’s La Mer (‘The sea’), inspired by Hokusai’s Great Wave, and the incredibly fast rhythms of Japanese drumming.

Creative Studio Danny Rose

Danny Rose is a visual creation studio that creates and produces immersive audiovisual works, in various contexts such as architectural projection, interactive installations, museography, the theatre, music, the opera, and the animation of public spaces. The studio is a collective of multidisciplinary artists.

The Art of Japanese Funeral Floral Arrangements

October 3, 2018   Johnny Waldman

The farewell ceremony for actress Kirin Kiki took place on September 30, 2018 | Photo courtesy Sankei News

Last weekend, at the farewell ceremony for the late actress Kirin Kiki, a large display of white flowers, designed to look like a wave, greeted the constant flow of family members, fans and celebrities that had come to pay their respects, and to say farewell to the 75-year old who had passed away from cancer on September 15. The white wave of flowers was comprised of roughly 1200 chrysanthemums, orchids, and gypsophila (an ornamental flower known as baby’s-breath in the West).

Relatively speaking, the wave of flowers at Kiki’s farewell ceremony was actually quite modest, in accordance with her wishes for a simple gathering. Attempt to search the Internet for ???? (seikasaidan, which literally means fresh flower altar) and you’ll see any number of extravagant designs.

The company Ito Sogi has a online catalog of funeral floral altars you can choose from

The wave motif itself is actually a common one in Japan, alongside the mountain. Both are typically used for men because they symbolize strength, but the rules of the old guard are starting to come down. Even chrysanthemums, which used to be the only accepted flower, are now joined by other white flowers, sometimes even colorful ones. But the alter of plentiful flowers is relatively recent, having originated in Kyoto just 30 years ago. This would make sense though because the technology and logistics involved in procuring large batches of fresh flowers is also relatively recent.

Diagram explaining the 6 stages of the chrysanthemum blossoms, from the book Nippon no Seikasaidan

A lot of money is spent on funeral flowers in Japan. In fact, in 2006 Beauty Kadan became the first publicly traded Japanese company specializing in funeral flowers when it listed itself on the Mother’s section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange. Youkaen, a general flower company that entered the funeral flower business in 1972 now says that roughly 75% of their 50 billion yen in sales (roughly $44 mm USD) comes from their funeral flower segment.

Over the summer, Haruichi Mimura, the founder of funeral flower company Sunvillage, published a massive 480 page book detailing the intricacies of seikasaidan. It’s an extensive look at the details involved in created fresh flower alters: everything from history and tools to the types of flowers and designs. It’s available from Pie Books and also Amazon.

https://www.atelier-lumieres.com/en/van-gogh-starry-night

A journey into van Gogh’s greatest masterpieces! 

The new digital exhibition in the Atelier des Lumières immerses visitors in the paintings of Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890), a genius who was not recognised during his lifetime and who transformed painting. Projected on all the surface of the Atelier, this new visual and musical production retraces the intense life of the artist, who, during the last ten years of his life, painted more than 2,000 pictures, which are now in collections around the world.

The exhibition explores van Gogh’s numerous works, which radically evolved over the years, from The Potato Eaters (1885), Sunflowers (1888) and Starry Night (1889) to Bedroom at Arles (1889). The Atelier des Lumières highlights the Dutch painter’s expressive and powerful brushstrokes and is illuminated by the bold colours of his unique paintings. Warm hues give way to sombre colours. The immersive exhibition evokes van Gogh’s highly emotional, chaotic, and poetic inner world and highlights the constant interplay of light and shade.

The thematic itinerary retraces stages of the artist’s life, and his sojourns in Neunen, Arles, Paris, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, and Auvers-sur-Oise. Visitors are transported into the heart of his works, from his early to mature years, and from his sunny landscapes and nightscapes to his portraits and still lives.

This is complemented by a new educational device inside the tank located in the centre of the Atelier: a selection of van Gogh’s famous paintings are represented in their entirety and accompanied by commentaries about his oeuvre and the museum in which it is exhibited.

The visual and musical work produced by Culturespaces and directed by Gianfranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto, and Massimiliano Siccardi, highlights the chromatic richness of his palette, as well as the potency of his drawings and his use of impasto.

In an unmissable talk, journalist Carole Cadwalladr digs into one of the most perplexing events in recent times: the UK’s super-close 2016 vote to leave the European Union. Tracking the result to a barrage of misleading Facebook ads targeted at vulnerable Brexit swing voters — and linking the same players and tactics to the 2016 US presidential election — Cadwalladr calls out the “gods of Silicon Valley” for being on the wrong side of history and asks: Are free and fair elections a thing of the past?

One Minute Art History: A Hand-Drawn Animation in Myriad Historical Art Styles

February 9, 2018  Laura Staugaitis

Filmmaker and educator Cao Shu captures the history of art in an experimental short film that lasts for

less than one minute. Throughout the film, the central character goes through the small motions of everyday movements like checking the time and having a drink, with each frame rendered in a different art historical style. The film starts in ancient Egypt and progresses through Chinese ink paintings and Japanese block prints to Modigliani and Basquiat-style portraits. Cao renders a vast array of art styles in a manner that is evocative without being overworked. He lives and works in Hangzhou, where he teaches at the China Academy of Art.

10 Scary Reasons To Stop Drinking Diet Soda Right Now

Nearly half of Americans drink at least one soda every single day, in spite of all we know about the negative health effects of this indulgence.

Lupus can be tough to diagnose. Some people have only a few mild symptoms and others have many, more severe symptoms. If you notice a combination of these symptoms, ask your doctor if you could have the disease.

?????? ????????? is a Russian painter?, a master of whimsical and narrative art. Subjects include fantasy landscapes, russian folklore, theatre and mermaids.
Victor’s art can be highly symbolic with hidden clues to help decipher the images. His work can also be humbly simple with images and subjects of universal appeal.
They can be equally viewed for their vibrant textured colors that fill the canvas and contrast with the translucent glazes that make the paintings dance with light and pull in those who view it.
Victor breathes life into each work inviting the viewer into the painting as a separate universe, one filled with boldness, energy and rich hues.

Victor Nizovtsev was born in Central Siberia, in the city of Ulan-Ude near Lake Baikal. When Victor was a little boy his family moved from the Russian Federation to the Republic of Moldova. Victor grew up in Kotovsk, a town located in the heart of the region’s wine country and 30 miles southeast of the capital of Moldova, Chisinau.

At age nine he entered Kotovsk’s Art School for Children where he studied for four years.
In the 9th grade, he left home to study at Ilia Repin College for Art in Chisinau. He then studied at the prestigious Vera Muhina University for Industrial Arts in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Capturing New Zealand is a new series of landscape photography vlogs. Where I take you on the adventure with me, to showcase this incredible country through timelapse, photo and video. In this episode I head out into Fjordland National Park and Milford Sound to shoot more timelapses and landscape photography. We get caught up in some interesting weather that creates dramatic waterfalls to capture.
