Know your Brain

While i sit smoking my pipe knitting my endless scarf. Come with me on a journey of self discovery, revelations and incredulous mind blowing snippets of today's contemporary brain. A view through the looking glass. An opening of the bell jar if you wish. Turning the mirror to reflect on very nature of the brain and essentially ourselves.

My trip to Rep Ireland, cork. Captured a Stoat. curious little fello

Margaret Bowland:  Beauty in the unconscious

Facebook |  at Driscoll Babcock Gallery

Margaret Bowland was born in Burlington, North Carolina, and studied studio art and English at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Her work explores the concept of beauty—what it means to be beautiful, but also to what extent it is significant today, both in the world and in art. ‘Being beautiful is a form of wealth, says Bowland.

She considers that the commonly held ideal of beauty is to be tall, thin and white. And while we recognize deviations from this norm can have appeal, are deviations nonetheless. ‘The need to be beautiful fuels one of the largest and most ruthless industries in our world,’ she says.

Bowland currently lives in Brooklyn and teaches painting at New York Academy. Her work has been exhibited at Greenville County Museum of Art in South Carolina and Babcock Galleries in New York, among others.

Clear Flight Solution offers robotic falcons to chase off real birds

Squadrons of robotic birds. Snip:

Birds are beautiful creatures. However, if you work in aviation, waste management or agriculture, you will be aware that birds can be a very tough problem to deal with. Birds are not only a nuisance, they can also be a serious threat to safety in aviation. The Robird is an environmentally-friendly solution for all your bird-related problems. Here you can learn more about our Robirds, their applications and the current status of development and testing.

Robirds are truly unique remotely controlled robotic birds of prey, with the realistic appearance and weight of their living counterparts. Robirds use flapping wing flight as a means of propulsion, with a flight performance comparable to real birds. Based on nature itself, the Robird models offer new and exciting possibilities in bird control. By triggering the instinct of birds, through the combination of silhouette and wing movement, chasing birds becomes fully controllable. We make sure that the man on the ground is in control of what happens in the air.

Historic Glass-Plate Photos From Romania Restored And Turned Into Colorful Art

The recoloring of old black-and-white photos is an excellent way for modern audiences to re-visit, understand and associate with history. Jane Long, a photographer based in Australia, has taken a collection of old glass-plate images by Romanian photographer Costica Acsinte (or Axinte, depending on who you ask) and updating them by adding color and a bit of Photoshop magic.

Acsinte, who died in 1984, was a Romanian war photographer during WWI who also took photos professionally and personally after the war. In 2013, what was left of his damaged vintage glass-plate photos was digitized by the Costica Acsinte Archive to preserve it, and it is this collection that Long drew on to create her wonderful photo series.

Wonders of the Underground World. There is much beauty right in front of you, but sometimes amazing megalomania-inducing natural architectures exist right underneath our feet :O

Note the humans in the first image to appreciate the size of those crystals.

.AND the helicopters at the bottom that look like Lego pieces xD.
