Hypersphaerae in Space!

Requiem lives on!  

Two of the photographs from the show were included in a short exhibition at the Charles Bank Gallery last week.  The show, Celestial Matters, included works that had been in space as well as those inspired by the final frontier.

Buzz Aldrin was in attendance at the grand event on Oct. 14th.

Check out these links for more info on the show and the presenting org.

Sony Bravia - Sphaeralogical Bliss!

Nothing captures the elegance and wonder of the Super Ball© like this Sony Bravia commercial.  250,000 bouncy balls dropped down the streets of San Francisco.  It is mesmerizing and beautiful!
