Amazing Tilt-Shift Van Gogh Paintings

Serena Malyon, an illustrator in her third year at the Alberta College of Art & Design, has taken the classics works of Vincent Van Gogh and added a contemporary twist. Using Photoshop, Serena has added the ’tilt-shift’ effect to Van Gogh’s paintings, providing a fresh perspective on these masterpieces.

Screenshots I got from Ustream broadcast. First images from Mars! You can see the horizon AND the rover’s wheel!! As well as it’s shadow!! Another congratulations to NASA’s JPL crew!

Private Moon Project

Russian artists Leonid Tishkov and Boris Bendikov created a fantastic world illuminated with the moonlight where they tried to convey relations between the man and the Moon. This is a romantic story about a man who met the Moon and decided to stay with it forever. They named the installation ‘Private Moon’.

Stars above Lights

Stars in the constellations Cygnus and Lyra (left), and Draco (middle-right)a appear above the city lights of Innsbruck, embraced by the Alps.

The clean air and good sky transparency above this capital of Alps still allow to see starry sky from the mountains at the edge of the city while light pollution has vanished away the sky of the most major cities around the world. The city light has strongly illuminated the inversion layer.

Seeing a Solar Flare 
image courtesy SDO/NASA 
A composite picture from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured the January 19, 2012, solar flare erupting from the sun. The picture includes data from multiple wavelengths of ultraviolet light, to represent the different layers of the sun’s turbulent atmosphere.

The Holographic Principle
Image Credit & Copyright: E. Winfree, K. Fleischer, A. Barr et al. (Caltech)
Explanation: Is this image worth a thousand words? According to the Holographic Principle, the most information you can get from this image is about 3 x 1065 bits for a normal sized computer monitor. The Holographic Principle, yet unproven, states that there is a maximum amount of information content held by regions adjacent to any surface. Therefore, counter-intuitively, the information content inside a room depends not on the volume of the room but on the area of the bounding walls. The principle derives from the idea that the Planck length, the length scale where quantum mechanics begins to dominate classical gravity, is one side of an area that can hold only about one bit of information. The limit was first postulated by physicist Gerard ‘t Hooft in 1993. It can arise from generalizations from seemingly distant speculation that the information held by a black hole is determined not by its enclosed volume but by the surface area of its event horizon. The term “holographic” arises from a hologram analogy where three-dimension images are created by projecting light though a flat screen. Beware, other people looking at the above image may not claim to see 3 x 1065 bits — they might claim to see a teapot.
