Wasser, Pigmente und Tinte imitieren die Erde von oben: Satellike

Ein wirklich wunderschöner Kurzfilm von Roman De Giulis, für den er mit dem Einsatz von Wasser, Pigmenten und Tinte so etwas wie Luftbildaufnahmen der Erde imitiert.

This project was initiated by a job I did for the National Palace Museum of Taipeh. The museum ran an exhibition on culture treasures of the history of Taiwan in 2020. I was hired to create fluid and abstract interpretations of some iconic items, a collection of several drawings and artworks. I decided to develop my existing methods further, stepping away from stock paints and ink and creating most of the paints myself. One important aspect was to implement natural colors and realistic earth tones to the color palette and focus more on details than on a commercial look with punchy color and contrast.
Over a period of 4 months, I experimented with natural substances like sand, stone powder and historic pigments. Some of these supplies are rare and expensive, for example jade and malachite powder.

Die vielleicht beeindruckensten Dronen-Aufnahmen der Welt

Schöne und auch wirklich beeindruckende Zusammenfassung der vielleicht besten Aufnahmen, die Drohnen bisher von diesem Planeten gemacht haben. Just wow.

From enchanting tulip fields in Europe to frozen lakes across Antarctica, sit back and enjoy a bird’s eye view of the most incredible sights on earth with the best of our scenic drone footage.

Die Erde als Puzzle

Hübsches 1000-teiliges Puzzle der Erde in rund und mit 67 Zentimeter Durchmesser. Sicher nicht ganz unkniffelig.

The 50th anniversary of Earth Day is, April 22nd, 2020, the world’s largest environmental movement that aims to bring awareness to the critical issues facing our planet.The range of landscapes from deserts to jungles and the varying cloud patterns over the Pacific Ocean make this puzzle the perfect challenge. This circular puzzle shows the Western Hemisphere and the Pacific Ocean in incredible detail.

Die Erde bei Nacht aus Sicht der ISS

Kurzer Break am Dienstagvormittag – die Woche ist dafür ja schon alt genug.

‚Night Flight‘ has been created using real photos of Earth taken by NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station.

Sit back, relax and meditate on our beautiful home as the lights from across the world shine out into space.

Using software, we have turned this time-lapse photography into a real-time video reconstruction so we see our planet at the speed as it would have appeared from the ISS.

Tauchen durch Plastikmüll

Taucher und YouTuber cheeseandjamsandwich war neulich vor Bali unterwegs und wollte eigentlich mit Rochen tauchen. Rochen sieht man in dem dabei entstanden Video keine. Ein paar Quallen aber – und Müll mit Müll und noch mehr Müll.

The ocean currents brought us in a lovely gift of a slick of jellyfish, plankton, leaves, brunches, fronds, sticks, etc…. Oh, and some plastic. Some plastic bags, plastic bottles, plastic cups, plastic sheets, plastic buckets, plastic sachets, plastic straws, plastic baskets, plastic bags, more plastic bags, plastic, plastic, so much plastic!
Surprise, surprise, there weren’t many Mantas there at the cleaning station today… They mostly decided not to bother.

A day in the life of earth

Japan’s Himawari-8 satellite is in stationary orbit over New Guinea where it captures some truly amazing imagery of the Earth. Every day the satellite captures imagery of the western Pacific, Australia, and parts of Asia, Antarctica & Alaska.

Glittering Blue is a video of Himawari 8’s imagery from just one day. The video shows 24 hours of imagery from August 3rd 2015 in 12 seconds. What makes Glittering Blue stand out is its sheer size, which really showcases the amazing quality of Himawari-8’s imagery.
