Embarrassing.  But fun.

Book Carving to the Max!

This is just too cool.

 Dutch Book Week and Van Wanter Etcetera have put out a series of autobiographies, the pages of which are carved into likenesses of the authors.  Soooo amazing, I can't believe it hasn't been done before!

More images here.

Sooo much going on lately, and a lot of it involves movie-making :)

I'm taking a 'film in architecture' class this semester, which involves lots of practise movie taking & editing (and discussing.  ohhhh, the discussing.), and as luck would have it my studio project is being enriched/enlivened/informed by multiple multimedia presentations throughout the semester.

So here, for viewing pleasure, my fledgling attempts in roles as director, actor, editor, etc. ...

For the film class
(a work in progress, as everything is):

Matt Stuart

Matt Stuart is a brill' photographer; great sense of humor, and really makes you want to take a second or third look at the mundane world around you ...

Detangling ...

I continue to press on in my relentless Dreamweaver-y pursuits!

I did a lot of reading and trolling about re: what's hip nowadays, and the overwhelming trends are:

- Large, full-page images
- Photorealism & sense of perspective
- Textures (again, largely photo-real)
- Graphic navigation
- Animated navigation

I've seen some really inspiring sites out there along the way, here are some notable screenshots:

It's extremely engaging; I might even deign to say overly busy.  But full of simultaneous animations, and definitely a fun treasure hunt for links to the rest of the pages!

Cleaner, and very very simple, but this restaurant's page showcases many of the themes I mentioned above.  It's calm and inviting.

Rolf Reichardt:
Again, clean and simple, dare I say architectural, but maintains the same principles of large image, high-quality photo, and engaging perspective.

To that end, I've edited my little page a bit, (again, and again, and again ...):

Miles to go before I sleep, of course.  It might be getting prettier, but the links still all lead nowhere!
