We are exploring new modalities of creative photography through robotics and long-exposure photography. Using a robotic arm, a light source is carried through precise movements in front of a camera. Photographic compositions are recorded as images of volumetric light. Robotic light “painting” can also be inverted: the camera is moved via the arm to create an image “painted” with environmental light. Finally, adding real-time sensor input to the moving arm and programming it to explore the physical space around objects can reveal immaterial fields like radio waves, magnetic fields, and heat flows.

Musings over DA:I romances, which I’m half-paying attention to because I enjoy being infatuated with virtual men:
Hello all, Imagine Anders here, and as you can tell I am a terrible drawer!!
I’ve been desiring a new icon / mobile banner for a while, but truth is, I can’t seem to find anything that fits! Right now my mobile banner is a silly cat gif! And, that’s where you can come in— an ART CONTEST!
What I would like is a matching icon and banner, and the prompt is these two simple words: “Imagine Anders”. It can be Anders pondering to himself, your favorite Imandernation brought to life, or anything else your Mage loving heart desires. The prize is, well, I’ll use your artwork on my blog and give you a special credit page!
I’m going to be accepting 3 winners (maybe more!), and all winners will have their art featured every couple months, just to keep it fresh. 1st place will be used first, then 2nd and so on. This contest is not based on artistic skill, just by what strikes me the most.
I’m putting the deadline September 20th for now. Submit your work to to my submit box. Good luck, and may the love of Anders carry you far.
Reblog for self. May give this a shot because I’ve been doodling some Anders anyway.
