I love the idea of this.

I do love that math can be used as a tool, a language and in visual manners. Pretty interesting how someone can look at a pattern or set of parameters that has been known for centuries and find something new…
Even if you aren’t a Math person, THIS ARTICLE is visually strong and well worth looking through.

A crab with a 12-foot leg span? New nightmares… Not sure the human is to scale, overall an amazing chart. Cool to have a reference.

And here I thought it was obvious. Spinner sharks jump out of the water spinning. Oh, Black Tips do too? huh.

Very interesting article HERE. Although the “digital revolution” has been bemoaned by the music industry and photography so often that I don’t think people any hear it anymore.
But I think this is a different way of addressing the issue:
1) Using an example that is truly legendary
2) This quote:
But in truth, we do ask: Every time we go to a library or shop, we want it to be full of new books, and when we search various channels (legal and illegal) for new music and movies, we expect to find them. Someone has to produce this content – this art – and sadly, the shoemakers’ elves are all busy stitching elsewhere. And after it’s been produced, someone has to buy it. Or not buy it, as is more likely the case.
It comes down to a question of value: Do we value artists’ effort?

Back in August, I had the honor of photographing U.S. Marine Cpl. William Gadsby for Smithsonian Magazine. Gadsby suggested Ball’s Bluff Battlefield Regional Park, near Leesburg, Virginia, where he could actively show how his prosthetic (designed by Hugh Herr) allowed the freedom to hike and be active in different rough terrains.
Gadsby was wonderful to work with – gracious and happy to hit up different locations – as well as engaging and thoughtful: we talked about surfing, wartime history, philosophy, governmental use of statistics, organic foods, cultural differences between US and Europe, and – of course – lots of physiology, bio-engineering, and prosthodontics. He’s really pushing to make a difference in people’s lives, and spending time with him was an inspiring.
