The Illusion of Sex Change

In Collage on January 21, 2010 at 4:36 am

In the Illusion of Sex Change, by Richard Russell of Harvard University, two faces are perceived as male and female. However, rest assured that the both faces are actually versions of the same androgynous face (neither male, nor female). One face was created by increasing the contrast of the androgynous face, while the other face was created by decreasing the contrast. The face with more contrast is perceived as female, while the face with less contrast is perceived as male. The Illusion of Sex Change demonstrates that contrast is an important cue for perceiving the sex of a face, with greater contrast appearing feminine, and lesser contrast appearing masculine. This optical illusion won the prize in 2009 optical illusion contest as well.

Now this is how you iterate 🙂

CG and Clay: 3D Print Variables

In Collage on January 13, 2010 at 6:14 pm

I’ve decided to find out how to scan and print this sculpture in a smaller size to prototype different heads and appendages, basically creating 3D Addition Variables.

The DT Department at Parsons has a new larger 3D scanner. Sven, our Dean, wants to scan all the graduate students heads. (a new kind of year book 🙂 And I know we also have a few 3D printers that use a variety of materials and methods.

I think about 70% of the original size would be as small as I would want to go, so I maintain enough material to incorporate finer details in the heads and appendages proportionally. Those would be different for each “print”.  I’m thinking I’d like to make an edition of about 15/20.  I wonder what it’s going to cost?

Creative Blok? No Problem!

Just draw something I already know!

That way I don’t have to be too creative.  🙂
I decided to illustrate a song suggested by my partner in crime, Chris.
The song’s called “Armchair” by Andrew Bird from the album Armchair Apocrypha

Here are the lyrics, so you’ll have an idea of what to expect in the drawing … maybe.

I dreamed you were a cosmonaut of the space between our chairs
And I was a cartographer of the tangles in your hair
I sang the song that silence sings
It’s the one that everybody knows,
everybody knows the song that silence sings
And this is how it goes

These looms that weave apocrypha,they’re hanging from a strand
The dark and empty rooms were full of incandescent hands

The awkward pause
The fatal flaw
Time, it’s a crooked bow
Time is a crooked bow

In time you need to learn, to love the ebb just like the flow
Grab hold of your bootstraps, and pull like hell
until gravity feels sorry for you, and lets you go
As if you lack the proper chemicals to know the way it felt
the last time you let yourself fall this low

Time’s a crooked bow
Time’s a crooked bow
Time, it’s a crooked bow

Fifty-five and three-eighths years later
At the bottom of a gigantic crater
An armchair calls to you
Yeah, and armchair calls to you
It says, someday, we’ll get back at them all
with epoxy and a pair of pliers
As ancient sea slugs begin to crawl
through the ragweed and barbed wire

You didn’t write
You didn’t call
It didn’t cross your mind at all
Through the waves
waves of hay and straw
You couldn’t feel a thing at all
Fifty-five and three-eighths
Fifty-five and three-eighths

These are so beautiful.  Reminds me of every reason to take Maya again.  I have to get my hands on Mud Box as well.  I just wish I could understand his bio.  Kazuki Takamatsu

Theo Watson posted this awesome little ditty on F.A.T. (Free Art & Technology).
I think it’s something I want to try out and maybe see if it works with the animation app I have.
