As the photographer Franck Bohbot, I used to go to fair when I was a child. I remember the candies, the colours, the other kids and the excitement of playing, hoping to win the biggest prize.

Franck Bohbot guides us into the fair, with wide, colourful shoots, surrealistically empty of children laughing and running around. The atmosphere is still cheerful, thanks also to the flashy colours and lights spreading in all pictures.

What Music Would Look Like If It Were a Physical Object?

Photographs by Martin Klimas

Photographs by Martin Klimas

Artist Martin Klimas came up with a clever idea: he put splatters of plaint on a scrim over a speaker and played music. As the volume was turned up, the paint popped up in the air and he captured the moments in a photograph. It’s a synchronized cacophony of art and music. It also looks fantastic. Source: gizmodo

Some numbers:

AVERAGE AMOUNT OF PAINT USED PER SHOT: 6 OUNCES
TOTAL AMOUNT OF PAINT USED ON THE PROJECT: 18.5 GALLONS
FINAL NUMBER OF IMAGES PRINTED: 212
SHUTTER SPEED: 1/7,000TH OF A SECOND
NUMBER OF BLOWN SPEAKERS: 2

A little gossip: Canon even made a commercial about it!

Do you remember those old photographs of African-Native Americans or American Indians ? Keliy Anderson-Staley has further developed this type of photography, the tintype, creating astonishing portraits of Americans. As European, I also recognize myself and my culture in those beautiful expressions and diversity. You can have a look to a more complete gallery plus an essay on flackphoto.com.

Left brain / Right brain

Left brain / Right brain by Brooke paints

Left brain / Right brain by Brooke paints

Left Brain:
“I am the left brain. I am a scientist. A mathematician. I love the familiar. I categorize. I am accurate. Linear. Analytical. Strategic. I am practical. Always in control. A master of words and language. Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers. I am order. I am logic. I know exactly who I am.”

Right Brain:
“I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feat. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I wanted to be.”

Films revealed

Quantum of Solace Poster - Cinemetric - by Frederic Brodbeck

Quantum of Solace Poster - Cinemetric - by Frederic Brodbeck

Cinemetrics is a tool which creates a visual ‘fingerprint’ of movies.

This project is about measuring and visualizing movie data, in order to reveal the characteristics of films and to create a visual “fingerprint” for them. Information such as the editing structure, color, speech or motion are extracted, analyzed and transformed into graphic representations so that movies can be seen as a whole and easily interpreted or compared side by side.

The “fingerprints” look just like piecharts, but way cooler, as Information is beautiful said!

Tip of the day: check out the website of the very talented Frederic Brodbeck, visual artist gratuated from the Royal Academy of Arts (KABK), Den Haag.
