Where Science, Art and Photography Intersect

rightarm

Caleb Char­land demon­strates lessons in physics and math­e­mat­ics with his mind-blow­ing pho­tog­ra­phy. Inspired by children’s books of sci­ence exper­i­ments, he pho­tographs every­day objects (like match­es, pens and mir­rors) in ways we’ve nev­er imag­ined, often using mul­ti­ple expo­sures to tell the sto­ry.

The Point of Perception

The work exists at the bound­aries of film/moving image. It encom­pass­es neu­ro­science, vision, geom­e­try and illu­sion and is designed to work specif­i­cal­ly on the human eye and brain. It is cur­rent­ly being devel­oped as an neu­ro­sci­en­tif­ic inves­ti­ga­tion into aes­thet­ics, pat­terns and the sub­lime.

It pro­duces a strong effect in many peo­ple — they are often com­plete­ly mes­merised by the aes­thet­ic qual­i­ties of the work and spend a long time with the work.

Unlogo — The Corporate Identity Media Filter

Unl­o­go is a web ser­vice that elim­i­nates logos and oth­er cor­po­rate sig­nage from videos. On a prac­ti­cal lev­el, it takes back your per­son­al media from the cor­po­ra­tions and adver­tis­ers. On a tech­ni­cal lev­el, it is a real­ly cool com­bi­na­tion of some brand new OpenCV and FFMPEG func­tion­al­i­ty. On a poet­ic lev­el, it is a tool for focus­ing on what is impor­tant in the record of your life rather than the ubiq­ui­tous mes­sages that adver­tis­ers want you to focus on.

In short, Unl­o­go gives peo­ple the oppor­tu­ni­ty to opt out of hav­ing cor­po­rate mes­sages per­ma­nent­ly imprint­ed into the pho­to­graph­ic record of their lives.
