radiolarian and some paper too

This week I watched the AMAZING documentary proteus by David Lebrun. If you haven’t seen it I absolutely recommend it – it is one of the most visually stunning things I have seen in ages. Really!

It absolutely made me want to abandon my current book project which of course I can’t do as it has to leave for the UK in a few more days… but in the meantime I am dreaming of radiolaria!! They are so beautiful… and organic. I showed the video in my 3D class and we are now making projects inspired by the images and ideas in the movie. I will post some images when we are done!!

Also my paper swap arrived from Karen in Australia! There was all sorts of fabulous-ness inside, again another creative distraction when I really should be finishing that book… OK blogging is also procrastinating from finishing the book too. I hate working to deadlines. The projects never cooperate when they are being rushed….

  1. Decided to take a look on youtube for something on Proteus, and there it was: a 7+ minute”sneak preview.”Wow! Can’t wait to see the entire thing…

  2. Sara – I know!! I was completely blown away, I mean its totally my “period” the late 19th- early 20th century and the visuals are just stunning. I can’t wait to get into the studio, or to see what my students come up with!!
