Kartierung – Landkarten im Wandel

  • A time-lapse map of every nuclear explosion since 1945– by Iaso Hashimoto“ / Karte aller atomaren Explosionen seit 1945 im Zeitraffer (Dauer: 14:25 min., Quelle: youtube.com oder ctbto.org/specials/1945-1998-by-isao-hashimoto) Infos zum Film und zum Künstler:

Der japanische Künstler Isao Hashimoto hat sicher erschreckende, wunderbare Zeitraffer-(Welt-) Karte aller 2053 Atomexplosionen zwischen 1945 und 1998 erstellt, beginnend mit dem Manhatten Prjket „Trinity“Test nahe Los Alamos, (USA,) und endend mit Pakistans Atomtests im May 1998.

Zwei vermutliche Atomtests Nord Koreas während dieser Zeit werden hier nicht berücksichtigt (beide sind nicht 100% bewiesen).
Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto has created a beautiful, undeniably scary time-lapse map of the 2053 nuclear explosions which have taken place between 1945 and 1998, beginning with the Manhattan Project’s „Trinity“ test near Los Alamos and concluding with Pakistan’s nuclear tests in May of 1998. This leaves out North Korea’s two alleged nuclear tests in this past decade (the legitimacy of both of which is not 100% clear).
Each nation gets a blip and a flashing dot on the map whenever they detonate a nuclear weapon, with a running tally kept on the top and bottom bars of the screen. Hashimoto, who began the project in 2003, says that he created it with the goal of showing“the fear and folly of nuclear weapons.“ It starts really slow — if you want to see real action, skip ahead to 1962 or so — but the buildup becomes overwhelming.

About „1945-1998“ ©2003
„This piece of work is a bird’s eye view of the history by scaling down a month length of time into one second. No letter is used for equal messaging to all viewers without language barrier. The blinking light, sound and the numbers on the world map show when, where and how many experiments each country have conducted. I created this work for the means of an interface to the people who are yet to know of the extremely grave, but present problem of the world.“

„The LEA was developed by The Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (UCL), as a partnership project between Dr Kiril Stanilov -The Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (University of Cambridge), Museum of London Archaeology (with the Mapping London and Locating London’s Past projects) and using data from the National Heritage List for England, courtesy of English Heritage. It was initiated and directed by Polly Hudson (PHD).
The London Evolution Animation (LEA) shows the historical development of London from Roman times to today, using georeferenced road network data brought together for the first time. The animation also visualizes (as enlarging yellow points) the position and number of statutorily protected buildings and structures built during each period.“ (text: en-topia)

„This is one of those things you might never believe if somebody told you, and yet even when faced with the evidence in photos, video, or Google Maps, you find yourself questioning reality (and maybe shaking off a serious case of the heebie jeebies). Welcome to Nagoro, a small village tucked into the valleys of Shikoku, Japan, a place where old residents are being replaced by life-sized dolls.“ (Textauszug der Webseite, Text: Christopher Jobson)
„The work is part of a project by longtime resident and artist Ayano Tsukimi who returned to the village after an 11-year absence to discover many of her old neighbors and friends had left for larger cities or simply passed away. The town itself is dying with a dwindling population of about 35 people. (…

Also, to those considering a visit to the salton sea, be warned that it can get up to 110-120 degrees, you’ll be far from a garage should you break down, and it can smell pretty awful. Late fall and early spring are much better times to go!“ (Text, gekürzt: Ransom Riggs, Quelle: youtube.com)

  • Dokumentar(-trick)film (teaser): „‚Loving Vincent‘: The First Feature-Length Painted Animation – Will Explore the Life and Death of Vincent Van Gogh„, postimpressionism/Postimpressionismus, u.a. animiertes Gemälde (gif): Wheatfield with crows/Weizenfeld mit Krähen (1890) (engl., animated gifs, Dauer/duration (teaser): 4:26 Min, Text/Zusammenstellung: Christopher Jobson, 2014, Quelle: thisiscolossal.com)
„Currently in production at Oscar-winning studio BreakThru Films, Loving Vincent will be the first feature-length animated film made solely through hand-painted canvases. The movie will examine the life of post-Impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh and the circumstances surrounding his violent and mysterious death some 123 years ago. Understandably, the production for Loving Vincent is no easy task and requires the help of 70 (!) painters who will help create the numerous hand-painted oil canvases required to bring the story to life. The team is currently appealing to the public on Kickstarter to help raise funds to complete the movie.“ (via The Awesomer, Textauszug aus Text von: Christopher Jobson)

„The entire endeavor was filmed and turned into a documentary titled Tim’s Vermeer, the trailer of which you can see above. The film began its theatrical run in January, but just became available as a Blu-ray combo pack and digital download today. Jenison also wrote a detailed article about the entire step-by-step process that was published yesterday on Boing Boing.“ (Textauszug der website, text: Christopher Jobson

„Female standards of beauty change over time, and what was considered attractive only 10 or 20 years ago might not be anymore. But how have these ideals shifted over a much longer period of 3,000 years? Buzzfeed Video created a short, fascinating feature that examines the different body types seen as beautiful throughout history.
Using a diverse cast of women, we get a compelling look at praise-worthy bodies starting with Ancient Egypt (circa 1292 to 1069 BC) and ending with Postmodern Beauty (circa 2000s to today). Each has their own specific set of desirable characteristics. Ancient Greece lauded full-bodied women with light skin, while the Han Dynasty preferred large eyes and small feet.

What’s clear from this video is that a definition of beauty constantly changes over time as different trends fall in and out of vogue. Some aspects make a comeback many, many years later while other traits already saw their heyday.“ (Text: Sara Barnes)
