Palette of Light – by Alan Jaras

In this digital age I found the following explanation by the artist to be necessary. “these are analogue images of the refraction patterns of a beam of light passing through various transparent objects (in this case a piece of textured glass). The image is captured directly on to 35mm film, no camera lens is used ( this is a photogram using film instead of photographic paper), the transparent object replaces the lens. Colour is introduced by placing specially prepared coloured filters directly in the light beam. This is an analogue image and has not been computer generated or colour treated. The colours you see are a faithful reproduction of those captured on film.”

Another round of upgrades and ehancements complete

Whew! I hate upgrades but this one went about as smooth as I could ask for.  I really wanted to get on the latest system so that I could begin a new design.  This one has been up for almost a year now and it is time to freshen it up a bit.  The upgrade included a new backend for folks that have blogs here, a related posts feature to make it easier to browse through the work and a Community News section in the sidebar.

Please let me know if anything is wonky or if you just have a suggestion.  Thanks!

The ability to create new blogs has been disabled

Due to the massive amounts of spam blogs (splogs) that have been registered lately, I have disabled the sign up feature.  I was spending much of my time fighting these things and after having to delete almost 700 of them, I have killed this feature.  The focus of this site isn’t to fight freakin’ spam!  I want to spend my time improving things here for current and future users. For those interested, I will still create a blog for you manually.  Just send me an email ( and I will get you setup.   Sorry for the inconvience and it is a shame that the efforts of a few have caused this problem.

The Invaders! – by Douglas Edric Stanely

The Invaders! - by Douglas Edric Stanely

Installation for the 30 year celebration of Space Invaders.  From what I understand, this was built on technology that Stanley had previous made.  The video also looks to be over a year old.  The installation features Space Invaders attacking the Twin Towers in New York.  I don’t have to tell you that this guy is getting a lot of attention, but I felt I needed to post it to our audience.
