The Clock

There’s no beginning, there’s no end. It starts when you enter the space and it stops when you leave. But, you become part of this experience because your schedule, your life, the next meeting you have will somehow be influenced by, or it will become part of, this narrative. You become an actor in a way of this film. –Christian Marclay


Marvin Minsky

Category : Diary, Inspiration January 31, 2016

When we move about a room, the shapes of things change. How can these changes be anticipated, or compensated, without complete reprocessing? The results of eye and head rotation are simple: things move in the visual field but keep their shapes; but changing place causes large shape changes that depend both on angle and on distance relations between the object and observer. The problem is particularly important for fast-moving animals because a model of the scene must be built up from different, partially analyzed views. Perhaps the need to do this, even in a relatively primitive fashion, was a major evolutionary stimulus to develop frame-systems, and later, other symbolic mechanisms.

NGC – 660

Category : Inspiration December 28, 2013

This new Hubble image shows a peculiar galaxy known as NGC 660, located around 45 million light-years away from us.

NGC 660 is classified as a “polar ring galaxy”, meaning that it has a belt of gas and stars around its centre that it ripped from a near neighbour during a clash about one billion years ago. The first polar ring galaxy was observed in 1978 and only around a dozen more have been discovered since then, making them something of a cosmic rarity.

World as a Stage

Category : Diary, Inspiration October 26, 2013

When we put satellites around the planet Darwinian nature ended. The earth became an artform subject to the same programming as media networks and their environments. The entire evolutionary process shifted…from biology to technology. Evolution became not an involuntary response of organisms to new conditions but part of the consensus of human consciousness. (McLuhan)
