Tidepools

I visited the ocean in early March to photograph likely sites for models. This one is complete. I took a series of pictures for photo reconstruction using Arc3d service and various Meshlab versions on my machines. I uploaded the slightly edited raw model that came back from the service to Sketchfab. I created my own Poisson mesh reconstruction and textured it with five of the pictures I took, and even though there are only 11,000 triangles for economical upload into a virtual world, this approach looks surprisingly faithful to what I saw in my visit. See the model for a week or so at LEA Sandbox in picks or by appointment.

Andrea del Verrocchio - David





Model by Artec Group, Inc with mesh edits and raster texturing by Lemon on view through March 17 at LEA sandbox except Friday re-rezzings.  The rasters are found images applied in Meshlab.  This represents and substantial advance in texturing even though the available photos are quite various and limited and the registration is less than optimal.

StormEye
























Douglas Story and Desdemona Enfield present StormEye through December, 2016, at LEA24, an immersive temporal experience combining responsive architecture and quicktime movie of a violent storm. This work was previously exhibited at Aho Museum in 2009. A blog for StormEye is at http://slstormeye.blogspot.com/.

Ziki Questi covers the exhibition and provides wide-angle photographs that give a good sense of the space http://zikiquesti.blogspot.com/2016/12/stormeye.html.

Clarification

In an earlier post, David and Goliath Comparisons, LEA on two occasions has communicated with me privately and taken offense with something i said, "LEA is nothing." Let's look at the context.
[2016/10/22 14:50]  SaveMe Oh: the real fight is between small me and the big dictatorship of LEA
[2016/10/22 14:50]  SaveMe Oh: so we don't need metaphors
[2016/10/22 14:50]  Lemonodo Oh: i don't see any comparison
[2016/10/22 14:50]  Lemonodo Oh: lea is nothing
[2016/10/22 14:50]  Lemonodo Oh: u r something
[2016/10/22 14:51]  SaveMe Oh: I know myself, but for the the drama it is the fight between me and them
[2016/10/22 14:51]  Lemonodo Oh: but i see what u r getting at now
[2016/10/22 14:51]  Lemonodo Oh: it is much the same as u say
[2016/10/22 14:51]  SaveMe Oh: They decide what is good for us and who are the chosen ones
[2016/10/22 14:52]  SaveMe Oh: so let me occupy this place
[2016/10/22 14:53]  SaveMe Oh: you don't have a clue anyway what to do with the sim
[2016/10/22 14:53]  Lemonodo Oh: of course
[2016/10/22 14:53]  SaveMe Oh: haha
[2016/10/22 14:54]  SaveMe Oh: growing virtual grass
[2016/10/22 14:57]  Lemonodo Oh: i'm not enough of an art admin to figure this out on my own and feel a little like don quixote tilting at windmills over this but publish this conversation and let's see where it goes
Something that could be conflated as saying a sponsoring institution is nothing was originally prefaced with the advice there is no comparison.  There isn't a comparison.  The institution has tremendous power around virtual real estate, far beyond many private estate owners.  However, in art movements, it has no agency in comparison with the agency of a single artist, nor should it have, though it does seem to be in the business of policing for various good reasons. Thus the lines of propriety blur.

Search for Goliath continuation


Goliath continues to live and die everywhere, be vanquished by the stone shaped like a ball hurled by David. Coming up... last chance for steel from the Old Bay Bridge we see him lying in state.

Update, 12-31-2016: Unfortunately the application was denied.

David and Goliath, Nowhere




































David and Goliath have gone Nowhere.  LEA24, 272m altititude, is installed through December. 2016.  It integrates the scupture garden into the full size model of the inner city of Khirbet Qeiyafa.

Meantime, through November is a region-wide urban and art world protest commentary, Guerilla Strategy To Infiltrate LEA, by SaveMe Oh, LEA24. at sea level.
