Theo Jansens Fantabulous Contraption

Friday, September 28th, 2007
YouTube Preview Image

If you dig the above clip, check the inventors talk at the TED talks here,

How nuts is this, not only does he look like Robert Duvall from the Godfather got cast as a wacky Belgium scientist but he’s also come up with the coolest use yet for use cable ties.

I struggle a little with his use of the word “life”, but really, this is off the hook. What blows me away the most, more than this incredible feat in engineering and more than the mesmerizing organic way that the creatures move is the fact that, if this guy found himself born in or transported one thousand years into the past, with-out too much effort he could re-create the whole project. And based on his progress i doubt the lack of modern technology would hamper him one bit.

And then we’re would be today? Some kind of science fantasy wind and steam driven super world, thats where.

Also, his “brain”, if it were developed with this application in mind before computers had been created would more than likely result in an Azimov style Positronic brain being around today, there may not even be computers, just a world of highly developed engineering customized to each applications, merged with fine artistry.

Just think, no more loading time….

New Graffiti Laws

Friday, September 21st, 2007

GRAFFITI will become a specific offence and people under 18 will need to prove spray paint cans are needed for work when they are purchased, under new laws introduced into the Victorian Parliament yesterday.

But the proposed laws have been branded “heavy handed” by Liberty Victoria for reversing the long-held legal principle of the presumption of innocence.

“The presumption of innocence has a very long and honourable history and I don’t think it is a good idea for politicians to jump in on the spur of the moment and reverse it just because there is public irritation about a particular form of conduct,” Liberty Victoria president Julian Burnside, QC, said.

What bullshit.

DOZE

Tuesday, September 11th, 2007

Last Fridays launch of Doze Green at Paper Shadow.
1.JPG
Upstairs in the gallery things were mellow, it was just chillers enjoying the killer art in all its glory. At the end of its tour from NZ to Sydney and then the mighty PSG. Stands for Pogo Sex Girls.
2.JPG
And Speaking of which… Shit, i’m not going to open the upstairs bar during future launches. How much nicer is it when its not a gallery mosh pit?3.JPG
The only excitement occurred when some strange hippy came out of no-where and tried to shake Jagi down for his stash of Tofu and Sandlewood. Shit almost got hectic.
4.JPG
Meanwhile downstairs, hundreds watch as Doze paints live. Photos below are courtesy of Bonsai. Luckily at least one of us knows how to use a camera.

Interplanetary, no actually more like cosmological. 11.JPG
I got the feeling that while Doze was working he was painting the audience that was watching him. I forgot to ask if that was true, but if it was, heres an shot of the crowd for comparison. I love this guy with the camera phone, and theres that hippy again.
12.JPG
Wait, thats no hippy it’s Bonsai with Mason (7 Shadows fame) and Jagi to the Right. While Masons boy in the back is shows off his impressive butterfly hand puppetry. Tight.
14.JPG
You see how well we treat our guests at Paper Shadow? Buxom servant girls, now thats service.
15.JPG
My brothers at Libertine, Jerry Poon and Master Steve, the proud owner of the live painted piece from the night. The lucky bastard.
18.JPG
You see her sparking me up? I tell you guys… That Remy is a bad influence.
19.JPG
Jagi does the worlds first gay Ninja Turtle impression…..
20.JPG
And we loose our shit, which thats about the last memory i have of the night, the rest is a blur of laugher, karaoke and kabuki.

Doze mate, when you get back in March we’re picking the party up where it left off. Until then Peace.

AND! Big ups to Andrew Chew and his crew from Sydney for making this all possible, i look forward to working with you guys in the future.
