Happy Birthday Carl!
He would have been 79 today.
Carl Sagan was one of the first Miller Fellows at UC Berkeley back in 1960. The program is designed to help young visionaries launch their careers in research.
The GIFS above are from an animated version of Carl Sagan’s famed ‘Pale Blue Dot’ monologue.
A particularly brilliant and inspiring organized assortment of stardust, he was.
Happy birthday Carl. We miss you, but you live on in your words and our minds.
I told Miyazaki I love the “gratuitous motion” in his films; instead of every movement being dictated by the story, sometimes people will just sit for a moment, or they will sigh, or look in a running stream, or do something extra, not to advance the story but only to give the sense of time and place and who they are.
"We have a word for that in Japanese," he said. "It’s called ma. Emptiness. It’s there intentionally.”
Is that like the “pillow words” that separate phrases in Japanese poetry?
"I don’t think it’s like the pillow word." He clapped his hands three or four times. "The time in between my clapping is ma. If you just have non-stop action with no breathing space at all, it’s just busyness. But if you take a moment, then the tension building in the film can grow into a wider dimension. If you just have constant tension at 80 degrees all the time you just get numb.
Rogert Ebert, on Hayao Miyazaki (via pseudolirium)
And this is why I often gravitate to works that have this even if “nothing happens” a lot of the time.
London based photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz is known for taking high speed photography to the extreme. His latest endeavor involves nostalgia, naked girls and some incredibly well executed high speed photographs of milk. The project aims at creating a pin up calendar inspired by the popular pinup calendars of the 40’s and 50’s. Only instead of clothing, the models are wearing milk. Milk frozen with high speed strobes. While none of the milk is illustrated, it is created from layering splashes from hundreds of individual photographs. Each taken with (real) milk splashed across (real) bodies.
