      Kraft - Let's Go! http://leeeeeeets-go.nl MICROEXPRESSIONS, GIF-ANIMATIONS & THE PIXEL Microexpressions are involuntary facial expression. It is difficult to hide microexpressions. Microexpression express the seven universal emotions: disgust, anger, fear, sadness, happiness, surprise, and contempt. They are very brief in duration, lasting only 1/25 of a second. Only the gif-animated pixel is absolute and universal. The pixel does not move or change, it is an illusion, there is not a whole lot of information and certainly there is no depth of information available. The pixel is the past. The pixel is like a star in the universe. INSTALLATION We look deep inside our planet, we look far out into the universe, we look deep into the eyes of our leaders searching for microexpressions. One room is showing the forefathers of corporate futurism & greed, chunkily pixelated executives, members of our board. The other series is dedicated to Sutherland in the Karoo. The research-section enables you to browse the material used for research. And don't forgt, humans are drawn to the mystery of their planets organic history and to the inner workings of the smallest but unimaginably powerful elements in the universe. They are like deer caught in the headlight of an approaching car. Deeply in shock and unable to move! FRACKING & THE KAROO South Africa's Karoo desert is a special place for us, a special area that must be respected - socially and environmentally. Some years ago our Dutch ancestors were hunting lions and bushmen in this very desert, now we are committed to the sustainable development of clean-burning natural gas in an environmentally sound manner. We intend to frack up the Karoo, and we think we found a solution for the water issue. In building a better energy future we all have a part to play. Let’s Go! http://kraft-series.com

        No sign of Professor Brian Cox but otherwise this was a stellar gathering in response to and to conclude Matthew Luck Galpin's exhibition 'Anvilled Stars' at the Museum of the History of Science in Oxford, England. The exhibition presented five of Galpin's mirrors wrought from meteorites, displaced around the museum's gallery. Introduced by artist Rebecca Slingsby, seven performers presented their response to the work: Nancy Campbell, Brian Catling, Jack Catling, John Davies (aka Shedman), D. Gwalia, MacGillivray and Holly Slingsby. The booklet 'Campo del Cielo' is now available from Pighog Press at http://www.pighog.co.uk/titles/campo-del-cielo.html Terrier TV were on hand to record the event for posterity and present the highlights here.

              Accelerating Universe Rachel Bean, Cornell University The last decade has seen dramatic improvements in our understanding of the universe, with cosmological observations allowing us to test Einstein's theory of gravity, General Relativity, which relates the matter content of the universe to how the universe's size evolves. Recent observations have shown that the universe's current behavior is extremely puzzling, rather than its expansion slowing as Einstein's theory predicts, it appears to be speeding up. We introduce the cosmological model that observations are investigating, and discuss how recent observations have presented fundamental challenges to our understanding of gravity and particle physics.

              • Eclipse at sunrise - November 3rd 2013 - Frisco NC

                This video shows the November 3rd 2013 solar eclipse at sunrise from Frisco, NC. Although the eclipse was only partial from the US, the East coast offered a unique opportunity to witness the eclipse ongoing at sunrise. The sun cannot be observed safely without filters during the day; but the few minutes immediately after sunrise represent an opportunity to briefly observe the sun with the foreground landscape. After spending hours searching for the best possible spot (thank you google maps!), I decided to go to Frisco, NC to observe this unique sunrise over a fishing pier that was partly destroyed by hurricane Earl in 2010. I resisted the temptation to make a time lapse video and decided to show this unique sunrise at its normal speed. It’s slow, but it’s what really happened. In other words, if you were not on the East coast of the US on November 3rd 2013, here is your chance to live this event, exactly the way you would have seen it with your eyes. I hope you enjoy this unique natural spectacle in a world where we express our thoughts in 140 characters, where we see life through Instagram filters and where disentangling the real from the virtual becomes a challenge… Thank you to my friend Isaac Namias for composing the original music specifically for this video. You can visit his website here: http://www.isaacnamias.com/ I had two other cameras taking pictures of this eclipse. You can see a selection of these images here: https://picasaweb.google.com/118049621269056730056/2013110402?noredirect=1
