small_wake.jpg Wake Turbulence (Music: Michael Trommer) Wake turbulence is turbulence that forms behind an aircraft as it passes through the air. This turbulence includes various components, the most important of which are wingtip vortices and jetwash. Jetwash refers simply to the rapidly moving gases expelled from a jet engine; it is extremely turbulent, but of short duration. Wingtip vortices, on the other hand, are much more stable and can remain in the air for up to three minutes after the passage of an aircraft. Wingtip vortices make up the primary and most dangerous component of wake turbulence.Wake turbulence is especially hazardous during the landing and take off phases of flight, for three reasons. The first is that during take-off and landing, aircraft operate at low speeds and high angle of attack. This flight attitude maximizes the formation of dangerous wingtip vortices. Secondly, takeoff and landing are the times when a plane is operating closest to its stall speed and to the ground — meaning there is little margin for recovery in the event of encountering another aircraft’s wake turbulence. Thirdly, these phases of flight put aircraft closest together and along the same flightpath, maximizing the chance of encountering the phenomenon.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wake_turbulence

small.jpg Spallation (Music: Michael Trommer) In general, spallation is a process in which fragments of material (spall) are ejected from a body due to impact or stress. In nuclear physics, it is the process in which a heavy nucleus emits a large number of nucleons as a result of being hit by a high-energyparticle, thus greatly reducing its atomic weight. In the context of impact physics it describes ejection or vaporization of material from a target during impact by a projectile. In planetary physics, spallation describes meteoritic impacts on a planetary surface and the effects of a stellar wind on a planetary atmosphere. In the context of mining or geology, spallation can refer to pieces of rock breaking off a rock face due to the internal stresses in the rock; it commonly occurs on mine shaft walls. In the context ofanthropology, spallation is a process used to make stone tools such as arrowheads by knapping.Ref.: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spallation

small_grey.jpg Greyfield Land (Music: Michael Trommer) Greyfield land is a term used in the United States and Canada to describe economically obsolescent, outdated, failing, moribund and/or underutilized real estate assets or land. The term was coined in the early 2000s as a way to describe the sea of empty asphalt that often accompanied these sites, which may also be referred to as “dead malls” or “ghostboxes”.

small_hiks.jpg Hikwsi (Music: Michael Trommer) The Concept of Hikwsi in Traditional Hopi Philosophy Scholarly efforts to understand the Hopi concept of hikwsi were rather unilateral and led to the oversimplified conclusion that hikwsi is a Hopi linguistic equivalent for the soul. This article attempts to shed some light on this important philosophical concept in a Hopi language perspective, particularly as applied in an explanation of human structure and behavior.

small_semio.jpg Semiosis Semiotics, or semiology, is the study of signs and symbols, both individually and grouped in sign systems. It includes the study of how meaning is constructed and understood. Semioticians also sometimes examine how organisms make predictions about and adapt to their semiotic niche in the world (see semiosis). Semiotics theorises at a general level about signs, while the study of the communication of information in living organisms is covered in biosemiotics or zoosemiosis.

small_lite.jpg Brite Lite Join other genetically manufactured humanoids for this shadowy night of visual and auditory exploration. We’ve brought together three Digital visual artists (Mixmotion, Videocake, VJ Nokami) along with DJ (Tom Kuo) for an evening of rich multi-layered visuals, celebrating both on and off-world Dystopia. Where smooth flow meets jagged edges, including abstract images and video themes of futuristic decay versus a retrofitted future, all in an atmosphere of uncertainty.

It’s up to each individual to imagine the video as he pleases and to re arrange any scenes in a desired sequence to achieve its best visual structure.

small_opera.jpg Teknokothika Techno Opera The City Set presents three operatic episodes in urban life past and present. First, The Context of Love Lives explores the inner conflicts and public writings of Elizabeth Bishop and Oscar Wilde-both humiliated and abused for their homosexuality, one publicly, one privately. We then move into Visionary, where we see a series of hallucinations brought on by a young man’s deliberate overdose of Seconol and Stoli, recollected from a more mature vantage. We conclude with Anniversary, one woman’s short stroll down memory lane while waiting at a sidewalk cafe for a date that doesn’t show.

small_shiva.jpg Shiva The Shiva project is a collaboration between composer Jan Pienkowski and media designer Nokami. The visual and sound content originates from the Indian graphic universe (politics, commercial endevour, religion and mythology). Modifying and rearranging this universe into various visual and sound frames, Jan and Nokami will compose a new media spectrum illustrating the contemporary faces of India.

small_shuxi.jpg Zhuxi Zhuxi was a famous scholar in the Song Dynasty (960 - 1279). He believed there were no ghosts in the world, so he decided to write an essay “No Ghost.” It was said he was a great sage so even ghosts were afraid of him. If he said no ghosts, ghosts could no longer exist. When ghosts knew he was writing the essay, they gathered together to discuss this and decided to send the smartest ghost to entreat him abandon the writing.

small_namaste.jpg Namaste In 1997, I traveled through India with preconceived visions of a country, having read and eaten quite everything I could find about its culture over a period of 20 years before I ever got to visit it. After traveling thousands of miles to get there, from taking taxis to riding on an elephant, the travel became more of a race contest inside a camera lens than a human experience. I returned home with lots of videotapes but as an empty spirit who has returned home like a passenger who has missed its train.

small_chinatown1.jpg Chinatown52 Produced in Montreal, this digital photographic project began in April 2002 to be concluded in April 2003. It consists of taking a specific subject and produce seven digitals pictures each week. The project is published every week on a website waiting for its final chapter and its first public exhibition in 2003.
