Michael Bell-Smith’s minimal computer animations present, abstracted forms, celestial bodies and vast endless cityscapes that flow across the screen like the backdrops of early arcade games. With a nod towards art-historical developments in painting (perspectival systems) and cinema (the tracking shot, motion control systems), Bell-Smith applies the austere logic of digital media to landscape representation with starkly different effect. Where these early special effects were employed most often to render a world in accord with our senses, Bell-Smith’s work is pared down to a point where the basic contemporary languages of computer graphics and urban planning intersect, resulting in an image of a world where the familiar becomes alien.
Michael Bell-Smith’s lecture is presented by MICA’s Video and Film Arts Department.

Hello elements of visual thinking, i just had a life changing/ super inspirational moment last night and feel very compelled to share it with you. At OK Natural health food store i pumped into a man who was buying twenty pounds of tofu and 4 pounds of tahini, he introduced himself as Keith McHenery, the founder of Food Not Bombs. If you do not know Food not Bombs let me inform you it is the fastest growing peaceful revolutionary movement in North America it has a more than a thousand independently run Food not Bomb chapters throughout the world. The goal or mission of the organization is to use dumped or donated food to cook vegetarian and vegan meals which in turn are served to the homeless and needy. It is amazing but for some reason the government is against handing out Food to homeless people, so this peaceful organization is on americas Terrorists watch, Keith Mchenrey, the founder has over 50 felonies and all he has done is serve free food to people around the world, he is actually on Americas top 100 terrorist list. The organization has expanded to create bikes not bombs, homes not jails, and lawns not bombs. The founder spoke at Red Emmas' last night. If you want any more information about the baltimore food not bombs or the organization its self please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org www.foodnotbombs.net

The 37-ton spider which stands at 50 feet (15 meters) tall was in Liverpool as part of the city's European capital of culture celebrations.

The first is David Horvitz. Basically, he just post ideas for people to do, most of them are quite simple but they make you think.
The second is NotCot. It's a huge site with pages and pages of products, graphic design, and fine art. It super easy to waste away boring hours going through each page, and it also updates daily.
You and a partner will embark on an expedition. Before next Friday, accomplish the mission you received in class. Chart your travels, and bring back evidence from your journey to present to the class. This may take the form of photographs, video, found objects, or other records of your interactions with the place and people you encountered. You will have 10 minutes to talk about and share your experience with the class. Until then, keep your mission secret.
However you choose to share your experience with the class, make sure that you accomplish this one central – and very important task – inform your colleagues about the people and places you encountered on your expedition and provide practical tips on how to reach and access these resources should your colleagues be sufficiently aroused by your reports to set out for them as well.
