Ancient Abandoned Alien Spaceship

golden_mean_spaceshipAbsolutely amazing photographs of the 100 year old Kelenföld Power Plant in Budapest, Hungary.

This is what the ancient ships from Dune etc should look like. Beautifully familiar, yet alien at the same time. This place should constitute an atemporal steam-punk-oid genre all on its own. A kind of Space-Deco.

I wonder how difficult it would be to get it going again… mind you, it looks like it should do so much more than simply control electricity production… it should be able to warp time – span galaxies.

Anyhoo… I’m not sure if the design has anything to do with the golden ratio, but the photos sure do. Beautifully photographed… and the photographer really knows about composition. The following photo for example could quite easily be a fairly mundane flight of stairs… but the light and the composition are fantastic. This is how it’s done.

More photos and a bit of background here.

Click any of these photos for big versions… this is the anamorphic, cinema-ratio one. Time… time… time…

Wake me up when it’s 2020

Okay, it's 2020 now I guess. [br]I've been making Golden Mean Calipers for about 10 years now.

Golden Mean Caliper Comparison Chart

I thought it might be useful for people to be able to compare all the calipers on the one page, so I made a comparison chart.

Demo of Golden Ratio in Artistic Composition (fairly disorganised)

Over the years, I've built up a collection of Golden Ratio Calipers... and I decided it might be quite useful for people if I made a video comparing them. Some of them are really good - some terrible. So I set up my camera... and found that my video-space looked a bit bare... needed a painting. So I decided to…

Why The Golden Ratio Works For Flowers

Fairly amazing video going into the maths of why flowers (and pine-cones, relative leaf positions etc) are so often based fibonacci numbers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sj8Sg8qnjOg And it's fairly amazing because I actually understood it. It's been a loooong time since I tangled with quadratic equations, but (on the 2nd watch) this did actually make sense to me. I always thought that with…

Limited Run : Neon Colour Range

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zoPqpqB6er0 I was tinkering with these colours a while back... and then someone with exceptional taste and style made a big order for a whole range of coloured ones... and every one was all "ooh!!!" So I made some for the local art gallery - and they all sold as well. So I made enquiries about getting a lot more…

New Product Videos

I'm putting together a series of product videos... one for each of the 10 or so different calipers that I make. [br]They will all look kindof the same... they're mainly for embedding in shop pages and so on. Because they'll all look kindof the same, I've made a separate youtube channel so subscribers don't lose their minds with boredom. https://youtu.be/qvXxBQCkF30…
