Rae | A view from ASTP


Links and such

First off, a few links that I thought were interesting:

High-speed Photography
  • This has some very interesting photographs of bullets going through playing cards, balloons, and lightbulbs, as well as a few other things. The coolest part is that he actually explains how he achieved taking each shot.

Nagasaki Journey: The Photographs of Yosuke Yamahata
  • A photographer's portfolio of photos taken in the aftermath of Nagasaki. Caution: graphic scenes of the destruction. When I was taking a class last semester that covered a lot of Atomic-bomb literature, we kept seeing the same handful of photographs over and over again. Very few from those days actually exist, or are avaliable for public viewing due to censorship and the nature of what happened. I find the photo essay interesting...

Chasing the Dream
  • An article about gaming, its effect on aggressive behavior, and an interesting note that a large percentage of gamers aren't actually kids; and that the adults who battle against gaming are more often than not over the age of 40... merely a decade older than the average gaming age (according to the article... I don't know if I can believe that one yet).

Freedom of Expression in the Copyright Era
  • A flash video I found... somewhere. I can't remember where. I think a back issue of Kaliber 10000, perhaps? (But don't worry, the video has the author's name and all.) Anyway, the link is pretty self-explanitory.

Private and Public
  • This photographer set up his camera in one spot in London and took pictures of passerbys. What resulted is an interesting collection of expressions, additudes, and personalities. (Alex sent me this, so some of you may have seen it already.)

I was going to post a link to my project, but I think it'd be better to wait until tomorrow and just show everyone.
