This is a NEW, 25 Minute Version of "The Image Frontier - Making the Invisible Visible", with previously unseen footage and lots of new scenes! (for the Version with German Subtitle go here: vimeo.com/79065488)
A tribute to the International Space Station Program as well as Dr. Don Pettit, NASA Astronaut and ISS Astrophotographer, "Making the Invisible Visible" explores and celebrates the Art and challenges of Astrophotography orbiting earth Day and Night on board of the International Space Station.
Don Pettit's innovative photographic work, and his passion for low light photography, has definitely changed the way we see earth from space. Accompanied with great background info on the challenges, techniques and motives of astrophotography aboard the ISS by Don's famous "Luminance" speech, previously unseen footage by Astronaut weaves a compilation of 4 special ISS timelapses ("intro", "startrails", "fisheye" and "aurorae") into a captivating visual experience.
Welcome aboard the ISS - enjoy stunning photography, videos and timelapses from the Space Station!

According to legend, German sound architect Carsten Nicolai got his musical inspiration from bats during his childhood, and he's been swooping and looping through the world of information transmitters ever since. Also helming up the Raster-Noton label, his art and sound work together to expose the beauty and creativity in the limitations of strict logical systems.
Real-time performance using self developed software (V-Module, fabriziopoce.com).
Audio drives vertex generation of objects and volumes. Render-to-texture feedback used to create a "mirror" effect. Position and rotation in space, colors and "scene" groups controlled in real-time through clip envelopes and MIDI manual controls. Ableton Live used to host the entire environment (Max for Live).
Recorded as a single shot. No post-production or off-line rendering involved.
