Ein etwas anderer Blick auf das Universum

2nd Jan 2010Blog, , , ,


The Known Universe Scientifically Rendered For All to SeeThe Known Universe, a new film produced by the American Museum of Natural History that is part of a new exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City.The magic of this film, though, happens as the inky black expands. Pulling farther and farther from Earth, you see the deep blue of the Pacific give way to night as the Sun comes into focus, the orbits of the solar system shrink smaller and smaller, the constellations Sagittarius and Scorpio stretch and distort, and, as the Milky Way receeds, the spidery structure of millions of other galaxies come into view. Then, you reach the limit of the observable universe, the afterglow of the Big Bang. This light has taken more than 13.7 billion years to reach our planet, and you return, back to Earth, to two lakes that are nestled between Mount Kailash and Mount Gurla Mandhata in the Himalayas.The structure of The Known Universe is based on precise, scientifically-accurate observations and research.Quelle: American Museum of Natural History

„The Forest“ – Kurzfilm von David Scharf

7th Okt 2009Blog, , ,

Eine 12jährige stellt sich dem Leben und findet klare Lösungen, oder mit den Worten des Schöpfers David Scharf beschrieben:

Antonia is a 12 year old girl. She often has daydreams, in which she wonders of in to a magical far away forest, were she hides from the problems of the real world. One day, however, her father takes drastic measures and she has to face a decision. Is your inner peace an utopian state until you have finally escaped the grip of the society and its rules? Or is affirmation a faster way to your personal luck? And what are you supposed to do, if you have to answer this question at the age of 12? In the Animated Short „The Forest“, the protagonist has to cope with this question and her hostile environment and finds a simple but radical solution.
