I CREATED MY POD PROJECT ASSUMING THAT WE WOULD NOT HAVE CREATED GRAVITY IN SPACE. I'M WARMING UP TO THE IDEA OF FLOATING AROUND BUT I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO HAVE THE OPTION OF BEING HELD IN PLACE INSIDE A PERSONAL POD. THE ENVIRONMENT/ ROOMS WILL BE SCREEN BASED AND INTERACTIVE, TACTILE MULTI TOUCH INGTERFACES. PEOPLE CAN MANIPULATE THEIR...
I am agnostic more than atheistic, but I agree with this video that there might be some confusion existing in religion. I get confused when I talk with my mum over the long distance phone call... how about something passed down hundreds of generations.
I was just thinking of places and our feelings and memories that are conjured up when we go to those places. In a airplane I feel a little anxious in the beginning, but then above the cities and clouds I get very reflective. Reflecting on the life that exists below on the surface. Actually I think anytime you are overlooking a city you get a...

So, I kind of overheard about this "secret" thing, kinda heard Oprah saying something about it. Having a clean house you can have a better life or something. Well I decided to find out what this whole thing is about. It's about the Law of Attraction. Here is the first 20 minutes of the docufilm:
In a way it's related to what I was...
So, for the past few hours I've been researching metaphysics, quantum physics, secret societies, mind control, teleportation, and Nikola Tesla. My objective is to find the relation to memory and to make a respective project.
The first film is a montage put together by a student with many clips from Waking Life and What the Bleep Do We...
This work is conceptualized as an "organic tower." The magnetic fluid, with a smooth black surface that seems to draw you in, reaches the top of the tower, spreading like a fractal, defying gravity. The form and texture of the physical surface of the tower constantly alter between the hard iron...
2002 M.I.T. FLUID MOTION EXPERIMENT
A fluorocarbon-based ferrofluid, with about 400-G saturation magnetization and low field magnetic susceptibility of 3, is placed within a glass Hele-Shaw cell of 1.1-mm gap. Magnetic fields are applied that have in-plane clockwise rotating and dc axial magnetic fields.

to provide myself with a little food for thought i decided to rig up an air pump (with an intensity dial) inside a tank filled with water and film the creation of bubbles from their birth inside the hose to their disintegration or merging with the air.
static bubbles with strobe:
I've begun to do more extensive research on ways of detection. One obiouvse option would be working with an Arduino and would make a lot of sense because it integrates with processing.
Microsoft seems to be working on a similar project under the name Wasp which boasts integration of such things like GPS and image capture. This devise uses...

A short french film about memory, time, and perception.
"Nothing tells memories from ordinary moments, only afterwards do they claim rememberance on account of their scars."
I just watched all 6 of the movies on the space collective homepage and while most of it was inspiring, I found some of it kind of scary. One of the clips even has a picture from an incident that happened 2 days ago, that was fast. It makes me think that the people who created those videos are leaning on the pessimistic side which inherently does...
Arthur C. Clarke once wrote that new ideas pass through three periods:
* "It can't be done."
* "It probably can be done, but it's not worth doing."
* "I knew it was a good idea all along!"
