sunday fun

A day out at Universal Studios with my family.

i find New York the prettiest, also it’s Lights, Camera, Action! hosted by Steven Spielberg was quite interesting. Ancient Egypt’s Revenge of the Mummy was the most fun ride. Accelerator at Sci-Fi City was quite silly and Shrek 4D Adventure at Far Far Away, most amusing (although i’ve seen something similar at Disneyland before). It’s going to be much more crowded once the attractions (Battlestar Galactica and Madagascar: A Crate Adventure) are fully open, so perhaps it wasn’t a bad idea to visit now.

poetic autumn

Club21 A/W Windows, 2010.

Initially, this was meant to be a ‘pop-up’ book of poems idea and the various elements were supposed to ‘sit’ on the book, creating different depths with dramatic shadow play. However, due to technical constrain, they ended having to lean against the backdrop for support. i would have done a lot more consideration for the book pages design if i knew earlier that they would ended up being so ‘exposed’ :-(

pixel x pieces

Cute mini shooting figurings on the wall.

Sculpture pixels.

Wall painted pixels.

Of familiar paintings – The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo and The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli (the only two i could recognise easily)

A printing booth where you can create and print on the spot. Turned out, the machine had ran out of ink, and that’s my faded pixel creation.

Pixel X Pieces by Terra Bajraghosa
Jendela and Upper Concourse at Esplanade
13 August – 26 September 2010

“Pixel X Pieces by Indonesian artist Terra Bajraghosa recreates classic masterpieces such as Napoleon Crossing the Alps by French artist and Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus in pixels (paintings and sculptures). He attempts to unveil and simplify the forms, colours and dimensions of the classic masterpiece paintings into many pixel fragments, and rearranging them like Lego blocks.

With this new pixelated version, he is able to add new objects and insert his own storyline into the classic masterpieces. Objects such as boom boxes and modern gadgets are included to create relevance with modern world. This is an effort to keep those old paintings ‘fresh’ and make connections to the youths.”

mosaic sunday

From last week.

This week has been crazy, i hardly had time to do anything other than work (in the agency) and more work (from home at night). But the good news is i’m going on holiday soon – September in Puning, a small town in the province of Guangdong, China (i’m tempted to pop by Hong Kong too since it’s not that far) and end October in Perth :-)))

Now that the plans are set, i’m thinking of upgrading camera all over again!

my little tiger in hipsta limelight

i bought another new lens today for the hipstamatic apps on iphone and decided to check out the different effects of the various films, lens and flash combination.

Float film with different lens and flash effects.

Pistil film with different lens and flash effects.

Apart from Float film, the rest of the films only does affect to the frame.

My current favourite is Float film with Roboto Glitter lens (first chart). What about you?

a strange new world

“Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world.
Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before.
Let your soul take you where you long to be...
Close your eyes let your spirit start to soar,
and you’ll live as you’ve never lived before.”
by Erich Seligmann Fromm
