🙂 Happy Mother’s Day Everyone 🙂

I produced the artwork above and below for Mother’s Day in 2015.  I happened to view these artworks again; I still like them.  So, I decided to post them again for this Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 12, 2019.  I took some of photographs of cherry blossom in the spring of 2015 at Branch Brook Park in Newark, New Jersey and I incorporated the Japanese prints to form the artwork for this special day as we remember motherhood.

🙂 Have A Happy Mother’s Day Everyone 🙂

A stroll through Van Gogh’s greatest masterpieces!

The Carrières de Lumières showcases the works of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890), who painted during the last 10 years of his life more than 2000 paintings, now scattered throughout the world. On the 7000 sqm Carrières, this new visual and sound creation traces the intense life of the artist fascinated by the warm and colorful colors of Provence.

The clouds, suns and portraits of Van Gogh’s greatest masterpieces come alive on walls over 15 meters high and reveal the artist’s singular style. The exhibition evokes Van Gogh’s immeasurable, chaotic and poetic inner world through his most iconic canvases, from the Starry Night (1889) to the Sunflowers (1888) to his famous Bedroom painted in Arles. 1889.

Through a thematic tour, discover Van Gogh’s immense production which evolves over the years. The sun of Provence, which revolutionized its way of painting, illuminates the gigantic space of Quarries. The expressive brushstrokes and daring colors are revealed on the walls of Quarries, highlighting a permanent dialogue between the shadow and the light.
Travel through the different stages of his life and travel to the heart of his early works to the sunny landscapes and nocturnals of the South that revealed the artist we know today.

The visual and musical creation produced by Culturespaces and realized by Gianfranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto and Massimiliano Siccardi, highlights the chromatic richness of the greatest masterpieces of Van Gogh, set in motion thanks to the advanced technical equipment AMIEX ®.

Daniel Kish has been blind since he was 13 months old, but has learned to “see” using a form of echolocation. He clicks his tongue and sends out flashes of sound that bounce off surfaces in the environment and return to him, helping him to construct an understanding of the space around him. In a rousing talk, Kish shows how this works — and asks us all to let go of our fear of the dark unknown.

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

About the speaker

Daniel Kish · Perceptual navigation specialist

Daniel Kish expands the perceptual toolbox of both blind and sighted humans by teaching echolocation — the ability to observe our surroundings via sound.

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)
