I did my first stick and poke tattoo yesterday! It’s the coffin that appears in As I Lay Dying, which is one of my favorite books ever. It could have a lot of different meanings but for me it just reminds me of what writing can do and everything in the book. I’ll never be at the level Faulkner was, or even anywhere near it, but I can at least try. I made it on a bevel.
Luminol Synthesis in combination with Iron(III) catalyst.
It’s “Mathematics of Planet Earth” year.
What about meteorology? Well, chek out about the Euler equation !
This visualization shows ocean surface currents around the world during the period from June 2005 through December 2007. The visualization does not include a narration or annotations; the goal was to use ocean flow data to create a simple, visceral experience.
This visualization was produced using model output from the joint MIT/JPL project: Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean, Phase II or ECCO2. ECCO2 uses the MIT general circulation model (MITgcm) to synthesize satellite and in-situ data of the global ocean and sea-ice at resolutions that begin to resolve ocean eddies and other narrow current systems, which transport heat and carbon in the oceans. ECCO2 provides ocean flows at all depths, but only surface flows are used in this visualization. The dark patterns under the ocean represent the undersea bathymetry. Topographic land exaggeration is 20x and bathymetric exaggeration is 40x.
This visualization was submitted to the SIGGRAPH 2011 Computer Animation Festival, but it wasn’t selected by the jury.”
